If you are here to see my project for For Fun Challenges click here. Otherwise- scroll on down and check out the the card I made with a different tag!
This project was inspired by 2 challenges. At Frilly and Funkie the needed ingredient of this weeks challenge is Words. Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show the needed ingredient for their challenge is a technique from Tim Holtz (also known as Lord Tim) :) Thus this card was born...
Here's the inside. Scroll down, and I'll show you some highlights.
The sentiment is from the computer and then I distressed it. For the distressing I used rusty hinge, walnut stain, tattered rose, shabby shutters, and weathered wood.
Here is a close up of the tag. I embossed a piece of blue Coredinations paper with one of Tim's embossing folders. I rubbed walnut stain Distress ink over it.
On the main tag I used the resist technique. I stamped this with versamark, used clear embossing powder, and heat embossed it-which I love doing-so magical! I made the actual tag from the George cartridge on the Cricut.
Here is the finished heat embossing.
Then I took the 5 different Distress inks and put them on my mat. I don't have a spray with water so I tried to used Tattered Angels. It wasn't quite what I had in mind, but there was a glitter effect which was cool. You can see the heat embossing through the ink which is so cool!
I just got my copy of Paper Crafts magazine and on page 37 Emily Branch made lace flowers for her beautiful card. And I bought these Glubers a couple of months ago...
And I have lace...
Woo Hoo! I LOVE this flower! The pearl is from Making Memories. Love. This. Flower.
So I have these stamps from Just Rite stamps from many many moons ago. And they self ink and still work and I still love them.
So I stamped different words on a piece of white cardstock and distressed it with the same color inks I used for the tag. I cut out words and that's when I realized I had extra words. I put them on the inside. I didn't plan on making an Anniversary card, but I am so glad that that is what I made. Our anniversary is in a couple of weeks--and I'm prepared! Or at least for the card part :)
Here's my card again. The metal washer says destination. The first word together is under a fragment so I like to think of this as Destination: Together. I used my gold leaf pen to outline the outside of the card. Oh! And I put the words on a piece of kraft paper that I also distressed. To balance out the tag I put the metal spiral opposite of my favorite flower.
I hope ya'll like this card as much as I do! It was lots of fun to make! Until next time my friends...get out your words and Tim Techniques--something fun awaits! :)
