All You Do

Hi Everyone! Last week I ran across a bunch of leftover diecuts while I was straightening up around my desk. I was talking to Laurie at the time, and since she was stamping, I decided to see what I could do with my leftovers while we chatted.

Since most of the shapes were already cut, it was simply a matter of layering the fancy tag over the scallop circles and securing with square brads. Then I stamped the sentiment and accent from Thankful Accents on a Labels 5 die cut and did a little sponging with Soft Sky ink. The bottom layer is Kraft cardstock (I WAS talking to Laurie, so I think I subliminally HAD to use Kraft! LOL) Then I stamped each corner and matted with dark brown cardstock. The ribbon is some luscious stitched grosgrain I got in my freebie pack when I placed my last order with Emma's Paperie. I made a couple ribbon tails, then layered a prima flower over the top and finished off with some liquid pearls on my scallop circles.

Someone asked recently where I get my Liquid Pearls. Sometimes I can find one or two colors at my LSS, but I've found the best selection of colors online at Ellen Hutson and Taylored Expressions. They come in various colors but I use White Opal and Platinum the most.

Okay, that's it for today. I've been up to my ears in orders and haven't had much time for anything but shipping the past few days. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have caught up with things and can get back to stamping and such.
