ID: MC Apr 16 - Tim's Tag - Awesome - ECD Friend - HB card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: April 10, 2016

And another month's of Tim's tag is done...

I using one of the "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs  ("Friends" minus the "s"), designed by Suzanne Cannon  also available on Quietfire Design HERE 

And I'm using a couple sentiment stamps on the inside from Quietfire Design  and an eCut file available on Silhouette onLine store "Awesome"

("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7 pce set);  ("Twirl and Enjoy" 3pce set); 


Created Tim's tag: 

Die cut the tag using Sizzix Tim's "Tag Bookplate" die from white cardstock. Using a palette knife, smeared Eberhard Faber Twin Color "Green/Bronze" acrylic paint. The technique this month was the "mosaic" technique. I had a bunch of left over bits and pieces of Anna Griffin's Rosa embossing folder cardstock, so cut this up as needed. Adhered to tag on the diagonal. Applied Glossy Accents, set aside to dry.

eCut the word "Awesome" and a shadow layer from white cardstock. Sponged Distress "Ground Espresso" on the shadow layer. On the top layer, inked with "Broken China" and embossed with Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Blue Sparkle" embossing powder. (has a beautiful glitter to it...). adhered the shadow layer to the underside of the tag, then adhered the upper layer over it.

Die cut the "flourish leaf" (Boss Kut), inked and sponged with greens and adhered to tag.

Adhered a bunch of blue quilled flowers adding a white half pearl to the centers.

Die cut the lace border (Joanna Sheen "Isobel Lace Border") from white cardstock. Inked with Versamark and embossed with Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Silver Satin Pearl" embossing powder. Punched holes for the brads and attached lace to the edge with blue brads.

Created an eCut file of the flower (Penny Black "Botanical Notes" and cut from CP watercolor paper. Painted with QoR watercolors and adhered to tag. Added Liquid Pearls "Daffodil" dots to the flower center.

Tied a blue/gold Sari bow and kept it in place with hot glue.

Side folded my white card. Inked the brick background stamp (Impression Obsession CAC) using "Worn Lipstick" all over and hitting here and there with Black Soot, misting with water and stamping. Repeated to cover the card front. Adhered the tag.





On the inside: Inked the brick stamp as the front and stamped, repeating to cover the whole inside.

Die cut the word "Friends" from white cardstock. Cut off the "s". Inked the die cut with the broken china and embossed with the Blue Sparkle. Adhered to card.

The butterfly was laying on my desk from a previous session (Sizzix Tim's  "Layered Butterfly" die & embossing folder set). Inked high points with "Fossilized Amber" and clear embossed. Body embossed with Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Chic Camo" embossing powder.

Stamped the birthday sentiment on white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Trimmed close to stamping and adhered to card.

Stamped the other sentiment onto the card with the black and clear embossed.
