"Mixed Bag"

Sunday, April 11,2010

Yesterday the wife and I attended our monthly Stamping get together.Just one of many that we participate in. This happens every month and is real fun. The month before the event we pick a theme for the event. The theme picked for this month was to design a gift tag, size 2 1/2" X 2 1/2".

Each participant designs a tag and the material for each person to make five of the tags. It's interesting to see what everyone comes up with. And, as usual everyone had a great time.

Here is a sample of some of the tags;

The card that I have for the day is a stamp from "The Stamping Studio" the stamp is called "Bubbles". I love fairy stamps.


The paper used for the image was "Cryogen" cardstock. I love the sparkle of this paper. It was colored with Copic markers, of course.

The frame for the image was cut with a new Cuttlebug A2 Embossing/Cutting die. My wife wanted to contribute to this card so she made the small flowers in the corners of the frame from plastic canvas. Don't ask me how she does it, she is very crafty. Thank You Rose.

The rest of the card is pretty standard. Once the image was colored and mounted in the frame it was popped up from the card. I did not put any stickles on this one, because the Cryogen cardstock already give the image enough sparkle.

The colors used on the fairy were;

Wings; BV0000,BV00,BV01
Skin; E0000,E000,E00
Dress; RV11,RV13,RV14
Bubble; BG0000,BG000,BG01,BG02,BG05
Hair; Y22,YR23,E35

As the title of this post said, "Mixed Bag" it is definitely that.

Hope you enjoy it. Your comments are appreciated and read.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Hi Bob, just wanted to tell you that I love the way your bubble itself came out. It has so much depth and dimension. I really like it. I think it's pretty awesome that you and your wife both enjoy stamping together. Well, keep up the interesting blog, I like to read your different comparisons, too. Toodles! Cherri
