Sparklers DT: Love tags

Last date of the month @spiegelmomscraps with two mini tags (I'm in love with tags lately )

I used two mini white shipping  tags; I left one white, the other I cut a few millimeters all around and I painted with black gesso, once dry I drew with a flat brush and Gold Mine Shimmerz paste three vertical stripes. I added splashes of acrylic, gold and white.This is the base of the tags: I created a layering with the patterned paper, lace: I blocked it all around the tag with white thread and then I glued the smallest tag to other tag.
I added two square frames, of different sizes, that I superimposed between them and to complete I added a cork heart wrapped with thread. Finally, I added some Gold Garland Confetti and title.

Sparklers DT: Grateful card

This week I wanted to make a spring card to thank a friend.

The base is formed by two superimposed rectangles of patterned paper; I superimposed on this surface a series of elements, adding the thickness also, to create greater dynamism. I used a white shipping taga white doily, other pieces of patterned papers, the simple colored thread of cotton and white cord wrapped a few times to form a circle and stuck with the stapler. At the center stands a beautiful butterfly die cut. I inserted here and there some hearts cork (Chunky hearts and Forever love hearts) and a cascade of sequins from the Mint Chip Mix that with its colors fit perfectly to the color scheme used on the card. Finally, as usual, the turquoise and gold splashes.

Sparklers DT: my source of energy

Today is my day, in the true sense of the word. Today is my birthday and I wanted to celebrate what has always accompanied my life: my love for painting and what I always carry with me: a travel set of watercolors and a few brush.

The central composition is created by a series of layers : white doilyshipping tagsglassine bags, patterned paper, some twine); the base is a patterned paper on which I used modeling paste and a stencil diamond pattern and a couple of stamps, washi tape and some die cut. Finally some embellishments: two wonderful sequin mix ( Sunny smiles and Glass slippers), Studio Calico Hearts and Arrows .
