Fall Flowers for Party Time Tuesday

Sharing this cute tag with Party Time Tuesday fans.
 
I started with a plain prima tag and covered both side with pattern paper (eek! I know-I love them as they are, but sometimes I just can't help but cover them up!!)
 
The stamps I've used are from Inspired Stamps.
I stamped music notes in the background and distressed the edges with Vintage photo distress ink.
 
The scripture I stamped onto cream cardstock and punched with a decorative label Stampin Up punch. It fits perfectly in the metal frame.
I did add some distress paint and gold accents to the top of the metal frame. Glued it right down to my tag.
 I encircled the tag with vintage lace, string pearls and burlap seam binding on the bottom.  Then started layering my leaves and flowers.  They are from Wild Orchid Flowers.  Tuck them in where you think they need to go.  My Hymn Girl is colored with Stampin Up Watercolor pencils.  She has dimensionals behind her to pop her up a little bit.  

Below is a close up of the flower arrangement.  I love how the tag turned out!

I hope you'll jump over the Party Time Tuesday blog-we have some fabulous designers.  Every Tuesday there is a new challenge where you can win prizes.

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
