ID: MC Mar/13 - Tim Dreamweaver - Thanks card
size: 5"w x 7"h closed (easel)

Thought I'd get my March "Tim's Tag" done early for a change... I don't have any of his Easter items... so gave it more of a Spring twist.

I'm using one of the newer stamps from the "Garden Delights" set and an oldie but goodie "Thanks" from the "Thank You" set from Quietfire Design


I paste embossed the Dogwood blossoms (Dreamweaver LL668) on white cardstock with the regular Dreamweaver paste. Set aside to dry, then lay the stencil back over it and colored it with Pebbles Pearlescent pastels.

I die cut the black textured frame around it with Tim's Baroque Movers & Shapers die and die cutting the center cut out with Tim's larger of the Mini Tickets magnetic dies.

Adhered my paste embossed image behind the black frame cutting part of a dogwood bud to sit on the outside of the frame. Set this aside.

Embossed the manila tag using Cuttlebug "Thanks" embossing folder. Sponged some Distress Picked Raspberry around the edges and went over it again with Walnut Stain. Tied a light pink gauze ribbon and adhered my frame element.

Used the drop out ticket piece from above as the background for my thanks element. Adhered a piece of Sookwang tape to a piece of white cardstock and punched it out with my McGill jumbo ticket punch. Sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter in Warm Highlights. Inked up a felt pad with Alcohol inks (butterscotch, raspberry, ginger & shell pink) and pounced till I got the saturation I wanted. Stamped the "Thanks" with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Layered the 3 elements and adhered to tag with 3D black adhesive squares. Tied a bow with a deep pink gauze ribbon and adhered it to the frame element with Golden's extra heavy gel medium.

Folded my white easel card and adhered my tag to the front piece. The floor of the easel I covered with a previous background I had made using Dreamweaver Glossy White paste pounced with a foam brush through a Crafters Workshop stencil "Kasbah", let dry and sponged with Distress.

Die cut the fence (Memory Box "Picket Fence") partially with my cutting machine and then finishing it off with my mallet from another piece in my stash of backgrounds. I need to have a border stuck on to the bottom of my fence to fold over and adhere to the floor of the easel). Die cut just a small section of the Tulips die (Memory Box) from a Valentine background stash. And the grass (Memory Box "Grassland Border") from yet another piece from my stash.

Stamped the quote with the black and die cut with Memory Box "Side Show Tickets" die set. Sponged with the raspberry.

Put some Sookwang tap onto a deeper pink gauze ribbon and scrunched it up then adhered it to the card floor, then adhered my quote piece. Used Tim's tiny attacher to further attach my ticket.
