More Fabric Flowers

Flowers created for a wonderful blooms swap on SCS. Both flowers were created using buckram material, die cut using Tim Holtz Tattered Floral and Tattered Leaves dies. After diecutting, I hand-dyed the shapes using SU reinker for the flowers and Forest Moss Distress Stain for the leaves that are attached to the yellow flower. I used fabri-tac glue to adhere each diecut to shape the flowers (5 diecut layers stacked per flower).

Groovy Blast from the Past

I created this card using a retired Stampin Up set called Groovy for a swap way back in April 2011 and am just now uploading it! I'm ready for some flower power instead of seeing the ground covered with snow. I *think* the patterned paper is from a DCWV paper pack. The card is one of my favorite folds...Z fold.

Pink, Lace, and Prima

Card created for a themed monthly swap. Pink is my favorite color and I love creating beaded stick pins. :) The embossed background was created using a Paper Studio emobssing folder from Hobby Lobby.

The Cat's Pajamas Spring Fling

I recently joined a The Cat's Pajama's ATC swap; but, I had no TCP stamps! So, as the story goes I couldn't stop at just one and now have 4 or 5 of these adorable stamps to play with. So, for the ATC swap I used Spring Fling stamp set to create a Z-fold ATC. There is lots of sparkle on my ATC but the camera just won't pick it up! I colored the flowers with Copic Spicka glitter markers; hat colored with Shin-Han Touch Twin markers.

Fabric Flowers and Notepad

This is another swap project on SCS! The swap theme is to create items that you would send as a thank you to a swap hostess.

The flowers on the notepad are from Creative Memories. The notepad instructions can be found in the resource section on splitcoast.

The fabric flowers are made from denim (old blue jeans actually!). The round flowers were cut using the SU circle die; the bookmark flower was cut from the Tim Holtz Tattered flower die.

This was a fun project; hope the swappers like them.

Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a very Happy and Prosperous 2012! This tag was part of a project I created in 2009 for a swap. Yep, it was posted on my blog in 2009, but thought it would be appropriate to post it again today. :)
