Just Because Tag

It's Jenny posting today with a tag I created. Tags are so much fun to create.  I always feel free to just play and mix things up.

I cut a tag from an old folder.  The damask pattern is a stencil from my stash that I covered with Translucent Embossing Paste. While the embossing paste was drying I stamped images from the Parisian Postcard set in black on the right. I added a few more stamps over the embossing paste after it dried. Then I added and blended Distress Spray Stains and some Distress Ink from my stash. I cleaned off the stenciled portion with a towel and then laid out my embellishments.

I found these two flowers already made in a scrap bin. They were both cut from Heartfelt Creations dies. The yellow rose was created using the Botanical Wings die, yellow Glimmer Mist and Clear Stickles. The blue flower was made with the Arianna Blooms stamps and dies and colored with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

I tucked leaves from Cheery Lynn's Tropical Leaves die and branches from Memory Box's Meadowbird Branch die behind the flowers. I added a sparkly Clear Rock Candy center to the yellow rose, and a Rhinestone to the blue Arianna flower.

The Just Because sentiment is from the JustRite Floral Labels Two Stamp Set.  The circle it's on is a small one from a Spellbinders die from my stash and the center was colored with distress ink.

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to check out this week's Challenge for a chance to win a great prize!

Hello Classy Friends, Diane here with you today.

Now that Spring is here I can hardly wait to get outside
and clean up the gardens in hope of soon seeing the Spring flowers arrive. In the meantime I created my own blooms for today's card!

There are so many new items in the store, it was hard to choose which flowers to work with, but choose I did and ended up making the flowers you see here. Aren't they gorgeous?

I used the new Sue Wilson dies Finishing Touches Delicate Daisies Complete Petals and Delicate Daisies Open Petals. One of the fun things about these dies, not only do you get 8 different sized dies to work within EACH set, but, you can use them all separate and as many layers you might wan from one to eight!

My flowers were cut from red/white scrap paper for the complete petals and white card stock for the open petals. Gluing the flowers is easy, using a small amount of Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive in the center of each flower first, then gluing each petal down one by one. The red/white flowers are 4 layers, the little red flowers are 2 layers. To finish, I added a Black Pearl to each flower center.

Once my flowers were complete, I set them aside to dry 
and started on the base of my card. Using Dazzling Sunburst embossing folder, I embossed white card stock.
Next is another newly purchased die Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance cut using Pearlized Esse White Metallic card stock.

I also cut a few bright yellow Tall Chloe Stems, well, they were tall, I cut most of the stems off, as for this card I didn't want them to show!

After I was happy with the arrangement of the flowers, I stamped a sentiment from JustRite Black-Eyed Susan set.

Thank you for visiting with me today. Don't forget to join in our weekly challenge!!

Gold Thanks

Hello, Joy here today, showing you a card I made with supplies from the Classy Cards 'n Such online store.

I used an image from Our Daily Bread Designs.

The paper is from Graphic 45 called Botanical Tea.

The "Thanks" is one of ten words from a die set by Impression Obsession called Greeting Set. The sentiment was cut out of a piece of gold from the Spellbinders Precious Metal Sheets.

The matted image was mounted with some of the Large Joy Foam Pads.  I added some brads and a little gold twine.

Thanks for looking at my card.  Have a Happy stamping day!

You're invited to Classy Cards 'n Such to see all the amazing products available.

Thanks for stopping by!!! Until next time...
