I was given the task of creating two totally different projects using the same Curly Swirlies die. Whoop whoop, I love this die...it's so elegant and could be used for so many different things! This tag was simple and so fun to create! A girl just NEEDS to get inky once in a while! *grin* The Tag Stacklets 1 die was used to cut two tags...one from card stock and the other from Bazzill's Antique Sheet Music then they were adhered together (the music paper was a little thin so the card stock was used for stability). The swirls were cut from Copic Mask It and positioned on the tag before four colors of Memento ink were sponged and the masks removed. The seam binding bow was died to match the top portion of the tag and a butterfly (Elegant Butterflies and Elegant Butterflies Overlays) with rhinestones that were colored with Copic markers finish the tag. I decided not to go with a sentiment for now. When I figure out what I want to use this for, I'll stamp/die cut a sentiment to attach to the top.

My good friend's nephew is getting married this summer so I wanted to make a card for him. I think there's something really, really classy about a white on white wedding card, dont you? OMGosh, I broke out so many dies to make this! Ready for the rundown? Fleur De Lis Accents from Spellbinders was used for the border and topped with the new Curly Swirlies die. Die cut flowers from Friendship Blooms, Mini Leaves, Bugabee Flowers and even Flowerbox Sprigs & Flowers were used to create the beautiful cluster. The flowers were shaped with a stylus, soft/spongy pad and tweezers. I really love the look of dimensional flowers! They are so much fun to create not to mention how amazing they look! The sentiment is from the new Lifetime of Love stamp set and was die cut using the Tag Stacklets 1 die. A corner of the tag was curled under and popped up on foam to give it a little shape. A Sparklet makes a beautiful center for the big flower and silver rhinestones were used for the smaller flowers then a few extras were scattered around the card. I just LOVE making wedding cards! It's such a special occasion and deserves a special card!
