We got home last night from a lovely weekend with family and friends; such a battery recharger :D Today I wanted to make something but with all the usual summer fun going on here and the unpacking and washing from the weekend, it had to be a quick pit stop into the craft room! I reached for Waffle Flower’s Loved set and some Prismacolor Pencils with the aim of stamping and white heat embossing the lovely frame from the set off the edge of a kraft tag.
I cut the Rounded Tag from Clearly Besotted Stamps in Kraft card and stamped the frame in Versamark before White heat embossing. I broke out a rainbow of Prismacolor Pencils to give life to the lovely flora peeping out from the side of the frame and filled the middle of the frame with patterned paper. The bow from the set is white heat embossed onto vellum and cut with its matching die. The sentiment is constructed of a white heat embossed ‘just’ from Just a Love Note on Slate card and a die cut ‘Be‘ cut from Fog card. It all came together with a couple of sequins, a star to embellish and a pop of hot pink twine to bring out the colour of the flower :D
I turned the video camera on again today while making this tag; just a rough and ready version of videoing as I go along :D
I have a couple of other things to tell you about today too;

Oh Debby, that is so lovely! I recently relocated and still have a lot of my crafting supplies packed and a crafting area not so well set up but a with longing for crafting. You have given me the kind of inspiration that will satisfy my need for creating, even in a little corner and with a few supplies. I truly enjoy your work-clean, minimalistic, delicate and so beautiful! Very well done, thanks.
So beautiful tag!! Lovely.
