Another Tag To Share

One really happy bunny, posting another tag to share with you today with stamping onto acetate, spray inks, sewing, sticking, glueing, oh just about everything that gives us crafters a buzzzzzz. Have had a huge flare up with my RA and things like the above really take it’s toll on my hands but medication has kicked in again and life nearly back to normal. I love making cutesy, cutesy cards with flowers, ribbons and D papers … which doesn’t put to much pressure on my hands … but my first love is stamping, inking and getting totally messy. Photo rubbish, so much glare from acetate and bling baubles on the card, tried to sharpen but that made it worse, doesn’t help that the sun is splitting the sky today … not complaining after our winter … but it’s creating shadows everywhere.

Have to give Andrew a huge kiss because he puts up with a lot at times like this … never complains ever, just supports me … but he is going in for a minor op with an overnight stay, in two weeks and I know he is a bit apprehensive … (never been in hospital before) … so just want to say babe my turn to be there for you and luv ya hun.


Made a full A4 sheet with lots of different stamped images so that when you need a quick image to put onto a card or tag you just select the piece you want and cut out.

The piece I selected for this tag was stamped with a Hero Arts stamp called Misty Garden Pattern, stamped it … and several other images … onto acetate, turned over to wrong side and spray misted with Memories Mist …. love these … covered with diamond glaze then put copy paper over and left to dry. Used the lovely freebie butterfly from Stamping Up Magazine and the stem of the flower is a tiny bit of chiffon material I had left over from making a flower isn’t it gorge. Hope you enjoy, I certainly did and there will be another tag to share with you tomorrow … what a busy bee I’ve been, really making up for lost time ha ha.

    This is stunning Shirley as is the previous one. So glad that you’re feeling a bit more able to craft, especially with results like these!

    Best wishes to Andrew, my Andrew had to have a small op a couple of years back and was just the same but it was fine. It’s just the thinking about it that’s not good.
