Tim's 12 tags of 2016- March

Hello Crafty Friends!

For the first time I am playing along with Tim Holtz' 12 tags of 2016.  How exciting!  :)

I did not have all of the identical Tim Holtz goodies to create the tag so I used other TH products.  Perfect excuse to play in the craft room and try new things!

Tim's completed tag looked like this:
Mine was a little different:
This was a last minute decision on Sunday to create the tag and I did not have any corrugated board.  Instead I used plain corrugated paper.
Also, I do not have foil so I used the Tim Holtz Glitter Dust.  (I love the Glitter Dust! The glitter is soft and beautiful.)  Picket Fence Distress Paint was flicked onto the background.
Along the edges I applied black Distress Crackle:
After the watercolor base dried, I applied TH circles stamp with black Archival Ink.
Seam binding was dyed using Distress Stains.
What a great word band sentiment:
Thanks for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the tag!

OH!  And if you haven't entered in for the stamp giveaway yet, please leave a comment on the previous post for the chance to win!

Graphic 45 and Quietfire Design- GIVEAWAY!!!

Hello Crafty Friends.

Yes, it has been a while since I have posted.  Some things have kept me out of the craft room for many weeks now.  I will not get into details of the negative reasons but I will share a happy reason: we have a new bundle of puppy joy and his name is Teddy!!  After our last Saint- the beautiful inside and out Ella- passed unexpectedly in October, our home and hearts have been empty.  We were fortunate to have a new Saint enter into our lives about a month ago.  He is a cutie pie and we love the little guy!  
Teddy makes us laugh and is so very sweet.  He is a super cuddler, too!  Our new family member inspired the card I am sharing today.  
Fittingly, the patterned papers are from Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs collection.  The lovely stamp is from Quietfire Design, "No one can measure":
No One Can Measure
The sentiment is so true and definitely makes me think of Teddy and our other furry family members.  No matter how much our heart hurts from a loss of someone we love, the heart always has room for more love.
Do you like the stamp used on this card?  Excellent!  Because I am giving away the stamp to one lucky person who leaves a comment on this post.  You have until 11pm ET on Tuesday March 29th to leave a comment to enter the draw.

Good luck in the draw and thanks for stopping by!
Big Crafty Hugs,

"Believe" Graphic 45 card for Scrapy Land AG Challenge...and GIVEAWAY!!

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today starts another challenge at Scrapy Land: Anything Goes using a die brand that Scrapy Land sells.  Easy to do since Scrapy Land carries over 40 brands of dies!  Also, on this blog post you can enter for your chance to win the Cheery Lynn Pierced Banners die set:
DL303 - Pierced Banners
All you have to do is be a follower (please tell me if it is Blogger or Email or Bloglovin') and tell me your favorite die set (or two).  Easy!  Now back to the card...

The card used several Cheery Lynn Dies: Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily, Dutch Scallop Square, and of course, the Pierced Banners.  The dies were used to cut several pieces of Graphic 45's Botanical Tea and Gilded Lily papers.  The lovely gold embossed stamped sentiment is from Quietfire Design's If You Don't Believe in Miracles stamp set:
If You Don't Believe in Miracles - Set of 3 Stamps
I wish I could say I made the flowers but they were purchased.  (My flower making skills are still a work in progress!)
All of the dies were mounted on a tent fold ivory card stock and matching patterned paper adhered to the inside:
Thanks for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the card.  I look forward to seeing your creation at Scrapy Land!  Don't forget to enter into the giveaway!

Big Crafty Hugs!
Kathy Jo
