Large Christmas tag.

I have such fun making these Christmas tags, my kids think I'm mad making Christmas stuff so early in the year. BUT I don't think its so early. I decided that this year I want to be really organised when Christmas comes. I want to do as much now so that I can relax and enjoy the holidays.
Ink all your paper with black including the flower. add some reign stones to your project to give it that festive look.
Add lots of ribbons and embroidery cotton or string to these Christmas tags it just gives them such a rich look and don't foget to add a bell or two.

Christmas card

I love using black ink, it really makes your stuff look distressed and old. Punch lots of holes all around the pattern paper.

For Old Time Sake Card

On this card I have torn an acrylic clock in half and then used a lighter around the edges of the clock which has caused it to warp. I applied the same technique to the piece of acetate undre the flower and clock, the acetate was first stamped using acrylic paint and a decorative stamp. The edges of the clock were distressed with a pair of scissors and then inked. the oversized flower was inked and stamped with a postage stamp
Hope you enjoy making this card. It also looks fabulous in deep red.

Adore You Card

Try using many different types of textures and techniques on one card. Stamp, ink, paint and sew on your card. Use flowers, brads, acrylic and rope to give your card depth and a unique look. I had so much fun making this card.

Butterfly Card

Use a scalloped edge, some lace a butterfly, flowers and some reign stones to make a beautiful card.

Flower Tag Cards

Try making some of these little flower gift tags. Use all your left over bits of paper, flowers, brads and ribbon. They are very quick and easy to make and will make your gift even more special.

Time Card

Glue some micro beads onto flowers and tags and don't be afraid to ink your flowers.
Put some inked rope though your tags to add some texture to your project.
Try tearing, inking and adding some bling to your work. Some people say LESS is MORE.... Personally I love my work to be distressed and full. I hate leaving open spaces.

Green & Red embossed card

I've used the cuttlebug embossing machine to create this card.

After you have embossed the card use distressing ink to highlight the embossing. You can also ink you flowers and ribbon to give it more detail.
