I have been busy as a beaver over the last several days making more tags for CHA! It seemed like a quick project, but I've figured out that I take about 45 minutes to complete each tag. I guess I'm watching too much TV while I'm coloring...lol! I also spend a lot of time on the computer and skyping my friends. My tags use many of the latest Mini's from Diana and are available here.
So here are the 31 tags I made to add to Diana's collection...
I will not list here the number and names of each image used on these tags, nor can I even begin to list the copics I used (I had a huge pile of them all over my work table.) I can tell you that I edged the tags with a) Walnut Stain b)tattered rose distress ink c) weathered wood distress ink and in places that needed it, Star Dust Stickles.
Now for the SURPRISE...
My friend Millie came over last week and during our visit she showed me how to make a Never Ending Card. I have my proto-type tucked safely in a drawer so that I can remember how it goes. Actually it is SOOOOOO easy!! Probably the most difficult part of the whole thing is planning how to decorate it. For my card I started out with two pieces of card stock measuring 5" X 5".
I decided to make mine a Valentine's Day card. So I went scrounging for some paper and found this awesome paper from Magnolia. It even has hearts on it, though it was sold as a Christmas paper. Again, I can't list the copics I used, but I can give you the #'s and names of each Mini image.
So here we go! The front of the card...This is #129 Kissing Edwin Standing and #341 Tilda Blowing Hearts. The banner in the upper center is #636 Lace Banner from the Raising the Ceiling Collection 2010. The sentiment stamped on it is from SU.
When you fold each panel to the left and right you end up with this....
The planning on this panel didn't work out too well because you can see part of the images of the next layer. Oh well! For this panel I used #151 Rose Edwin and #411 Elegant Heart both from the Raising the Ceiling 2010 Collection. The sentiment in the heart was made by using my Positioning tool and a sentiment from Whipper Snapper March 2010 set.
Now flip this panel away from you horizontally and you get...
For these two images I used #320 Kissing Tilda and #126 Kissing Edwin Sitting.
Now open the panels vertically again and you end up with the final part of this fun and interactive card...
I used #362 Secretive Tilda for the upper portion. The bottom portion uses a digital sentiment from The Cutting Cafe.
All my images are stamped with Memento ink on Cryogen White card stock, cut with my Nestabilities Petite Ovals Dis, the edges are sponged with Tea Dye distress ink and mounted on a Petite Oval scalloped die. The final sentiment by The Cutting Cafe was cut with Large Circle die, Large Circle Scallop die and then backed with another size from a Large Circle die.
Here is a link to the Never Ending Card put out by Lily of the Valley. I hope you'll consider giving this very fun card a try.
