With Love Tag

Good Morning!  Another glorious day here, can't get enough of them!

Today's card will be entered into the following Challenges; Papertrey Ink, Die Cut Kissing, Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!  and Simon Says Work It Wednesday.

This technique was giving me a run for my money, until I saw my good friend Sharyn Polesel make her beautiful entry!  THEN it all made sense!  Thank you Miss Sharyn!

I used the stamp and die sets from PTI, Lovely Layers and Swoosh.  Tag and Flourish die are from MFT, Traditional Stitched Tags and Fancy Flourish.  I cut out a flourish and used that as the kissing die.  (that was pure genius and ALL Sharyn's technique!!!)  The flowers were cut and stamped in Melon Mambo ink and then kissed on to the flourish die cut, if you look closely you can see some swirls, which I also hi-lighted using a Sakura Clear Star Glitter Pen.  I stamped 3 flowers, one was layered with the die cut.

Found this gorgeous Designer Paper in my stash by S-E-I, it has glitter and embossing on it.  Everything was adhered to the tag which was also layered on black card stock so it would POP!  Flourishes and sentiment in black as well as a couple of brads and an eyelet for accents.
I really love this look and will try and remember to use it again.  And without Sharyn I know I would still be trying to figure this all out.  :)
Thanks so much for coming by, love it when you do!

  2. This is so incredibly beautiful! You give me way too much credit. lol Love the colors, your wonderful design, but most of all I really love the "kissed" places on those gorgeous red flowers! Well done, my friend!

  3. I keep looking at this card and I am trying to figure out how you did it. I love what you were able to do, but I need to see it done IRL. Put on the coffee, I'll be right over. Until then, I am amazed! Oh, I'll bring Sharyn and Kringle.

  8. It took me a minute, and then I saw the flourishes on the red blooms. GENIUS indeed!!! I was daunted by this technique too - thank you, Sharyn, for making it all clear. Love your background too, and the touch of black in the greeting and flourishes. Super cool card!

  9. I guess I am going to have to check this out! Love the results for sure.
