Climbing Clematis Mixed Media Tag

This was a fun little project using Heartfelt Creations Climbing Clematis paper (and stamps and dies for the flowers), a few cute little charms that I got from some vendor as a freebie months ago, flat back pearls that insist on being crooked!, some old lace and polka-dot ribbon.

The upper right corner has some sparkly corrugated paper that I don’t even remember when I got it – I do remember that one of my daughters gave it to me, but it is ancient – I rubbed it with a bit of brown ink to make it blend with the paper a little more, and tore the bottom at an angle.

The clematis were crafted by moi, using HFC Climbing Clematis stamps and dies, and yellow stamens – the I used Purple and Cactus Flower archival ink to make these, and Fern Green for the leaves.

Here is the inside of the tag – its really more like a card, isn’t it? On the right hand side, I used a stencil and ink to embellish the paper, and cut the arch of flowers for the top and the little birds and birdhouse were die cut from the paper pack, and I added some glossy accents to them for shine – the sentiment, in case the glare from the light is too much reads: All things grow with love – I cut out the cute little stamps from the paper pack for the left side of the tag, and I have an old die cut (probably a generic/no-name brand) of the heart for the top. There is a thin magnetic closure under the papers, so it seems more of a tag at first glance.

I thought it was all rather cute – hope you do too!

Climbing Clematis & Sweet Magnolia Cards

In the evenings, I like to make flowers, and dream up designs for cards. On Fridays and Sundays I try to actually make the cards or folios. I’m even trying to branch out from Heartfelt Creations, but they just have such adorable designs!!! This is more Climbing Clematis and a Sweet Magnolia card.

Forgot my message, didn’t I? Sometimes I just want to decide later who I’m giving the card to, and for whatever occasion is called for.
Here’s the inside 😊
