Valentine's Day ATC Tag

Here's a Valentine's Day ATC Tag created using Graphic 45's new Ivory Artist Trading Tag and the Sweet Sentiments colleciton. 

I turned the ATC tag upside down and hung a heart-shaped pendant which I’d personalized with an image from Sweet Sentiments. For the ATC itself, I fussy cut some Valentine images and layered them with 3D foam dots to create a highly dimensional Valentines tag. Ribbons and strings of pearls complete this sweet little tag


Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day!

Starting this week I'll be blogging every Friday at the PaperMarket blog with some design inspirations. This week, I had the opportunity to play with some new Basic Grey Herbs & Honey collection which Sharon and Merdrey brought home from CHA. It being Valentine's Day, I decided to make some Valentine's Day cards even though this wasn't a Valentine-themed collection.

Here's the first card - a sweet, classically-styled card with fussy-cut flowers layered over an intricate heart-shaped doily and embellished with a string of pearls and pink seam binding.

Next, a Valentine's card more suited to a younger recipient with its bright colours and strawberries.

And finally, a card in a less traditional colour of kraft, brightened up with a bouquet of flowers and pearls over an intricate heart-shaped doily.

List of Supplies:

Patterned Paper & Stickers - Basic Grey Herbs & Honey collection - Asparagus, Artichoke, Onion, Raspberry, Strawberry, Pear, Radish, Sticker Shapes, Sticker Alpha

Doilies - own stash
Flowers - Prima

Couture Card

I love the colours of the new Couture collection by Graphic 45. The designs lend themselves so well to card making. Here I’ve made a long 4x12 inch card for Graphici 45 which opens up to a 12x12 standing display with a different view from different angles. I used the 4x6 card cut-outs for the centre pieces and the smaller cut-out pieces and fussy-cut details for the other panels.

 Here's the closed card:

And the card opened up to a 3D display:
