Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2012 Nov

Hard to believe that I have been able to keep up! we are almost at the end of the 12 tags. If I remember correctly there is 2 more to go. We started in Feburary.
Here is my take on the Nov tag
I love using these colours. The sentiment stamp comes from CTMH and the wheat stamp is a Hero Arts. The technique was to emboss the wheat and then later to remove the embossing to create a resist to the inks. I stamped the wheat 3 different times can you see the difference?

Now I am off to clean up so I can start on my next project!

Another FUN! stamp set from the {stamps} of  life!
I used papers from an older my minds eye  6x6 pad. There were some awesome papers in this little pad. I used alcohol ink from Ranger to colour the pearls, I forgot which colour I used.

It really was a quick and fun card to make :)
Have a great weekend everyone!

Gary's Retirement

As promised I am posting the retirement card using the tag that I had made last month :)
 the inside of the card

and here is the envelope that I had made for the card and what the back of the card looks like.
This was a fun card to make and I knew that the card would need a special envelope to hold the bulky card. The envelope that I created really did the job!
