Let's Avo-cuddle!! .......

Morning peeps!!  

For my make today I chose to use the super sweet Let's Avocuddle art stamp kit. I adore this one! it's so sweet and the little avocado and flower head stamps included in the set are just perfect for stamping around the edge of your die-cut like I did here or making a fabulous backing paper of your own!!

The shape of the card and the gorgeous little leafy fronds and dragonfly all come from the stunning Magnolia stamps- The Vintage box fifth edition. To make the card base I just used a kraft precut card, placed my lacy card die so that the edges of the top could be seen over the top of my card and then ran it through my die cutting machine a few times until it had cut all the way through the 2 layers of the card base. 

For the heart-shaped layer that Tilda's image is sat on I used my heart die as a template and drew around the inside of it. Then I cut it out with my scissors and distressed the edges by sanding and then inking them.

Look how sweet that little dragonfly is! I die cut it 3 times with my patterned design paper and once with the kraft paper so I could layer it up and give the wings that dragonfly layer effect. It looks so pretty and delicate. The leafy branches are so lovely too. I cut them, coloured them in with my promarkers and then turned them over and gave the leaves a rub with my dry embossing tool to get them to pop out a bit before I glued them in place.

The 'Let's Avo-cuddle sentiment just makes me smile! It's so cute!! I used the little torn notepad die from my one of my Doo Hickey die sets. 

Thank you for popping in, Hugs Lou xx

Tiddly Inks challenge #231...Gift Tag Goodness!!

Dienamics Rustic Heart.

Good Morning all!!

It's time for a fun new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and because we are heading into that magical season of giving thanks and gifts, this months challenge is...

Gift Tag Goodness!
so choose any Tiddly Inks image/stamp and make a tag to attach to a gift.
The tags can be any shape or size you like so just have fun with it.

(**remember...We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc 
but you MUST use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image **)

So for mine, I couldn't resist making a little shaker tag with some scrummy bones in for my little doggy pal!! I used the sweet little dog from the Mini and many friends clear stamp set. It's the cutest little pooch and just the right size for fitting on the MFT Tag Builder 5 tag.

For the little banner, I used one of the sentiment stamps from the  Pawfect Day clear stamp set. It fitted just perfectly too so it was clearly meant to be right?!!!

Let's take a closer peek at that cutie paws and my little bones cake topper sweets that worked so well for the shaker part!! too cute!!

I have another blog post coming up in a few mins so I need to get writing that and I'll see you all later!!! he he!!

Huge hugs Lou xxxx
