Tag You're It #63 - REMINDER

Happy Friday!
Are you playing along at Tag You're It for Challenge #63?



You have until Wednesday, January 25th at 9:00 am EST to submit a tag inspired by the tag that Karin Ã…kesdotter created for us for this challenge.

I created an octopus shaker card using, new to me, Lawn Fawn You Octopi My Heart stamps and dies! I created my background using Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet Distress Inks activated with water. The contents are a free floating, Copic coloured, octopus and a handful of sequins.

Ellen Hutson Mix-It-Up Challenge January '17: Avery Elle

IMG_1488




Getting in at the very last minute for the January Ellen Hutson Mix-It-Up Challenge: Avery Elle. This month were mixing it up with products for Avery Elle. I used an old Avery Elle favourite Petals & Stems along with Essentials by Ellen Stay Golden clear stamps. I stamped and die cut a selection of flowers from Petals & Stems. Then I stamped and gold embossed the pineapple on my card base and created a flower arrangement using the die cut flowers. A sentiment was added and finally a few clear sequins.
