Back Again!

Well it has been a month since I last blogged anything here - so I need to make up for lost time.

First up, a card I made for my mother to give to some friends for their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

The card used was metallic gold and cream card. Always nice to use this for a special occasion card.

I cut the corner flourishes with the Cricut using the Home Accents cartridge. The centre rectangle was embossed with the Divine Swirls folder on the Cuttlebug. The numbers were cut using the Songbird cartridge on the Cricut.

To finish it off, I placed tiny pearl bling on the centres of the flowers on the corner flourishes.

A few days ago, I was playing with some tags and Lord Tim of Holtz's book, Compendium of Curiosities and produced these tags. A variety of techniques was used and I had a lot of fun!
 You will need to guess what techniques I used from the book, if you have it already. If you don't have it - it is really worth getting! Send me an email if you really want to know...

I really liked the results when I used acrylic paint dabber to stamp an image then distressing! Hint - there are 2 using this technique!
