Goodly morning! Cor blimey and thrice, where has this week gone huh? One minute it is Sunday and the next we are waking up to Thursday! Yikes! Anyways, I have been busying myself in the Room of Stash playing with my DT pack from Jones of Nottingham. I was sent the new Kaisercraft Mix & Match papers which are a mixture of kraft papers with red, white and black patterns... along with some cool sentiments and two sheets that are just perfick for cutting out - namely butterflies and hearts. I have made a card (I know! a card!) and a tag (yep, you know how I loves my tags!) Today I am showing you the tag... I will pop the card on tomorrow :O)
I used a couple of the papers that have white lacy doily images on them, covered a Size 8 tag and then added a punched strip of black cardstock to cover the join. Now the cool thing with Kaiser papers is that along the bottom "info" strip the reverse side usually has a little patterned strip - seeing this red and white stripe on one of the strips was perfect to add to the black card punched strip, I cut it, edged with Distress Ink and then popped it over the top.
I mentioned about the hearts... well, these are so pretty, a lacy design and the actual heart looks like it has three layers... well, it really does now as I cut three out and layered them up, puffing them with a paper stump and adding Pinflair behind to make them stay in shape. The words are taken from another of the papers... says it all doesn't it? I added a few paper flowers (also Kaisercraft) to the bottom of the tag and a pearly self adhesive strip to jazz up the bottom of the tag a bit but... the heart, it looked ok but it needed something. I tried out a pearl, nope that didn't look right so I spotted my Kaiser butterfly stamps and decided to stamp a small one, cut it out, colour with Barn Door DI and pop him on... perfect! A bit of red and cream grosgrain to make the bow at the top and voila, finished.
That's all from me for today... I have a "job" to do... and if I sit here I will end up spending all morning doing aversion activities that will stop me from doing the really important thing I needs to do... tidy the Room of Stash! I know! I know! I am of slatternly persuasion and the old Room has got a wee bit out of hand again... simply a case of not putting stuff away after using it... and I have had a bit of a declutter and things aren't in their proper places... I may be some time... and I may even *whispers* de-cobweb the place too! On that delightful note, I shall bid you all a very goodly day.... Thanks for looking! TTFN
