Notecards and Tags

This is long overdue post...I had to wait till all my swap partners received their swaps so that I could post my creations. It was a fun time to make all those itty bitty cards and tags...
I divided my 3 sets of note cards into 3 categories (yeah! that's the crazy me)..stamping, cuttlebugged cards and only DP cards. here they are...

The cards with only cuttlebug elements...

The frame was cut with Lacey square dies, the white mat with Label one dies and embossed with swiss dots, and the butterfly cut and embossed with the Tag team butterfly die cut...some gems for sparkle!

The heart is cut from red corrugagted paper, the wings traced and cut from Maya road chipboard and some glitter for simple bling. 

 The flowers and leaves are cut from Daisy head dies and sponged with light coating of Vintage photo distress inks to let the embossing shine.

On to the STAMPING only cards..

 I cut clouds with PTI cloud dies and used them as masks and sponged broken china and tumbled glass to create a sky. Stamped the birds and branch from Hero arts set and paper pieced the birds. Sentiment is masked from another Hero arts set.

 Simple distressing and blending with broken china and shabby shutters and stamped on the garden bouquet silhouette stamp with memento black.

Stamped butterfly from Antique engravings and colored with Pearlescent watercolors.

The cards using only pattern papers... no stamping...

These use the Echo park Little girl line and walk in the park...don't remember which is which though...

 I loved creating my tags...
Loved the whole process of distressing, blending, and then inking with the background stamps...
The butterflies are colored straight with the blending foam and distress inks..and used the Quicke glue pen to add just dashes of glitter....
 All tied and ready to go.....I know this was a photo heavy post...but thanks for sticking till the end....

I hope those who got my swaps liked them. And if you'd like to see the swaps that I received, I've already posted them here...

That's it for today...see you soon with some super fun cards...

  3. all the note cards and the tags are just beautiful,and i have 2 ques for u though, first how did u mask the "thinking of u" sentiment in the notecard and how did u color the butterfly with the foam directly,u see i am just amazed to see all these fab tags and cards and do want to know a little more about it.
