Sunday Stamper - Week 159 - All Around My Hat

Goodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all... many thanks for the fab steampunk entries last week... all gorgeous creations. This week I asked Grim to choose the theme... sometimes I just can't think of anything new... so I was rather chuffed when he said "HATS"... and a cool song title to go with the theme too! To join in with the challenge all you need to do is make a little something, it can be anything you fancy, include the theme and some stamping, leave a comment for me here with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I will hop on over to visit you. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 25th June 2011.


My entry this week is something a bit different... actually, it is and it isn't because it is a tag... but there is also a tagvelope... cool name huh? Well, it is a donkey's yonk since I last made one of these folded tag jobbies and I decided to take it one step further and include a normal size tag inside the tagvelope. You do realise that I will be saying that word over and over now... tagvelope...


The large tag is hoooge and is a perfect size for folding... so, I used Snowcap Dabber to stamp some images and then went over them with Weathered Wood, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Stains... and for the main tag, I also used Chipped Sapphire DI - I wanted the white bits to look like a blue-print... well, it sort of does... if you squint a little lol


I used a combo of Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi Steampunk stamps... you can find these at The Stamp Attic BTW. I used mountboard to cut some Gadget Gears and coloured with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Stains... and then cut into them so only part of them are on the tag...


I added a few bits of Idea-ology to the tag and the outside of the tagvelope and used a piece of Grungepaper cut using the Hardware Findings Alterations die to make a closure for the tagvelope... all in all, I am rather chuffed with the idea of making a tagvelope... I enjoyed this almost as much as I did making that pouch last week.


Right... that's me for today... I hope that I managed to leave comments on all your entries last week.. Mr Blogger was being pesky and refusing to let me comment... I think I have just about caught up now though. Ooooh, and I very nearly forgot... Happy Father's Day! AlfieCat has been ever so clever and gone out and got Grim a bottle of something nice... and he made a card for him too... I have such a clever furbaby lol Thanks for looking... TTFN!
