Hi everyone! I know I have been “missing in action” for a lot of April and the first part of May. April I had a nasty virus that just would not go away and on top of that allergies. The first part of May I went on a beach vacation which was much needed to say the least. I have been working on projects but haven’t been able to share those at this moment but they are coming…I promise. 😊
This month on Eileen Hull’s blog it is ALL about flowers! I created this tag using up leftover ink from one of my previous projects. I started with a blank white 6.25″x3.125″ tag which I laid in the following watered down inks: Eileen Hull’s ColorBox Blends Tutu, Wildberry, Melon and ColorBox Coral Premium Dye Ink. I moved the tag around in the mix of colors to cover the tag completely. I let it air dry but you can use an heat embossing tool to speed up the process. Once dry I embossed the tag with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder.
I cut from two different cardstocks the Embroidery Hoop Diecut and using one part of the diecut from each of the different cardstocks I adhered to the front of the tag. I wrapped the excess around the tag. I adhered a patterned cardstock to cover the back of the tag.
I stamped the Welcomegirl rubber stamp image onto a piece of watercolor paper and inked out onto my glass tray the following colors of ink: Golden, Stop, Uniform, Hydrangea, Melon and Nutmeg. I watered down each ink and then watercolored girl image. Once dry I fussy cut her out and adhered to the card.
I cut an assortment of flowers with white cardstock from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and once I cleaned off my glass tray I spritzed the following Tattered Angel Simply Sheer Mists: Soft Peach and Peony and added just a little water to mute colors some. I laid the flower diecuts into each color doing both sides before removing to dry. I also cut one set of leaves from the Flower and Leaf Stitchlits. Once the flowers were dry I shaped with a stylus and adhered together.
I added an assortment of sequins and Dew Drops and Rainbow Glossy Dots to the center of the flowers and adhered to the tag along with bits of cheesecloth.
I stamped a Hello sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and added a few sequins randomly placed to the tag. I finished off with three strands of trim and a button to the top of the tag.
Be sure to hop on over to Eileen’s blog to see what the rest of the Inspiration Team has created! You can find past posts HERE. As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.
Also I would like to submit this tag for the following challenge:

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick tag I created using an assortment of leftover diecuts from previous projects. I started with a diecut from the Caddy Bag as the base for my tag. I also used a Beaded Circle and a Scalloped Rectangle Diecuts from Spellbinders (both are retired diecuts).
I went through my collection of scraps of patterned cardstock and cut six slim strips and adhered to the base of the tag. Next I added the beaded circle, scalloped rectangle and a circle diecuts off center of the tag.
I stamped Herbert Hare Stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper, fussy cut out and watercolored with an assortment of Eileen Hull’s ColorBox Ink which can be found HERE I added fussy cut set of roses to the head of the hare and then glued to the corner of the tag.
I stamped the word “blossom” from the Tall Word Collage Set and added it to the circle. I cut a single flower from the Stitchy Flowers & Leaf Diecuts. I shaped, adhered Dew Drop, sequins, thread and I added a small sprig of leaves to the front. I added pom pom trim to finish off the tag.
Also I would like to submit this tag for the following challenges:

Hi everyone! I am back again with another quick project for Eileen Hull and Stampotique collaboration this month! I cut the 3D Tea Cup die from Matboard and embossed with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder.
I forgot to photograph the tea cup while I was inking…oops! 😕 But I used Eileen’s ColorBox Hydrangea Blends which can be found in a set in her shop on etsy HERE. First I added a dab on ink on a tray and watered down and then painted onto the individual pieces. Once dry I lightly inked over the pieces again with the blend to make the embossing stand out. Once that was completed I put together according to the direction on the packaging.
Next I stamped the Kassa’s Bloom onto a piece of watercolor paper. From the same Colorbox Blends Set that the Hydrangea Blend came from I watered down the Tutu and Wildberry Blends and watercolored the flower. Also I used the Melon Blend and Nutmeg Blends which you can find those HERE and HERE.
I adhered the flower and leaf to the front of the tea cup along with thread and twine.

Hi everyone! This month Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team and Stampotique’s Design Team have teamed up to show how to create some simply stunning projects combining diecuts and stamps. Since I LOVE anything cats my first project had to be something with the Nerd Cat Stamp.
I cut from watercolor paper two sets of the Caddy Bag Diecuts. The two diecuts that looks like tags (with a hole in the top) will be used in another project.
I folded the both the diecuts and one of the diecuts I cut the sides off since there is no need for them.
I stamped the cat image twice and colored in the glasses, nose and the inside of the ears on the orange patterned cardstock. Next I fussy cut the image of the cat out and on the pink image of the cat all I cut out was the shirt which I adhered to the full cat image.
I embossed the box with the Waffle Embossing Folder and then adhered the diecut that I had cut the sides off to the side of the other diecut. Be sure the flap is going in the other direction since this will be how you open and close the box.
Next I glued the box together and added thin ribbon to both sides of the box.
I added an assortment of bright and happy patterned cardstock to the top of the box along with thread and a snippet of Pom Pom trim. I dressed up the cat with mini pearl buttons, mini flower and googly eyes.
I cut and water colored a couple Romance Flower Diecut and once dry I crinkled them up and added a Dew Drop to the center. I cut two of the smaller flowers from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecut, shaped and added dew drops to the centers. The last thing I cut was the smaller leaves from the Spring Leaves Die which I glimmer misted and once dry I shaped. Now I was finally ready to adhere everything to the top of the box!
It is prefect size to either add candy, washi tape or whatever you want to and give as a gift! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
