Tag Tuesday & Make My Monday - new challenges

Hi, today I'd like to share a tag I made for Tag Tuesday. The theme for the next 2 weeks is "Spring Flowers". I covered a tag with paper from Moxxie. Then I stamped flowers (Stampin' Up) onto purple and light blue cardstock. I used the matching punch to cut out the flowers and pop dotted them to the tag. Next, I added some greenery, using a Tim Holtz die. Finally I tied some blue ribbon at the top.

It's a great theme and we hope you will make a tag and link it up at Tag Tuesday.


Next up is a card for Make My Monday. The theme is "Birds" and was chosen by me! We'd love to have you link up a project featuring birds, eggs, nests and/or feathers.

My card features a bird stamp by Stampin' Up. I used the SU markers to color directly onto the stamp. I stamped the image onto white cardstock and then cut it out with a scalloped oval die. I added a slightly larger red oval and the word hello (Sizzix) cut in blue.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Love tag

Hi and oops! I forgot to put the tag I made for Gecko Galz in my post yesterday. Anyway here it is.

The background paper on the tag is from the "Oh Cupid" mini paper pack. The blue doily is cut from the Tropical Flower paper (la isla bonita paper pack). The pink heart is cut from the Love Potion #9 paper pack. The couple is from Retro love story collage sheet. I added a wooden embellishment to the tag.

Have a great day!

Bluebird of Happiness

Hi, today I want to share some cards I made for Gecko Galz. First up are two cards made with images from the Bluebird of Happiness collage set. When I saw these two very regal bluebirds, I knew exactly what I wanted my cards to look like.



I used a white card base for each one, using a Martha Stewart corner punch on the bottom corners. The bluebirds were sized in Photoshop, fussy cut and then I added jewels to the crowns. I layered the birds onto a red heart doily and a scalloped heart which was die cut from the Love Potion #9 papers (paper #2). The heart die is by Spellbinders. Finally, I added the gold hearts from my stash.


I also have another card to share, featuring a cute little girl image from the Lovely Little Valentines collage sheet. I sized the image, fussy cut it and then layered it onto a bingo card from the Bits & Pieces collage set. The background is paper #6 from the Love Potion #9 set. Finally, I die cut a white heart (Spellbinders) and layered a smaller pink heart onto it. The card base is white.

Thanks for stopping by! Please don't forget about the Gecko Galz customer challenge for this month - Vintage Valentines. Use at least one GG product in your card to be entered for a prize. Get all the details on the Gecko Galz blog.

Valentine's Day

Hello and welcome to a new Gecko Galz post! This week I've got a Valentine's Day card to share with you. It won't be long and we will be sending cards to special people in our lives to let them know that they are loved.

To make the card, I used a sweet image from the Gecko Galz "Lovely Little Valentines" collage sheet. The image was fussy cut and layered on top of a heart cut from a Spellbinders die and Gecko Galz "Pink Lemonade" paper.

The word "love" was punched from pink cardstock and then attached to a piece of red cardstock. These were mounted on a white card base. (The pink is the background paper used for scanning.) The white doily is from Martha Stewart and the flower is by the Paper Studio.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to start thinking red, pink and white - Valentine's Day will be here before you know it!

The new Customer Challenge is up on the Gecko Galz blog. The theme is Let it Snow. Please join in the challenge. You must use at least one Gecko Galz product in your creation and you have a chance to win a $25.00 shopping spree!

I made a pocket letter page using the Winter Beauties collage sheets. The background paper for each pocket is cut from the "Beachfront" paper (By the Shore paper pack). I fussy cut the ladies and added snowflakes, gems and other items to each pocket. The edge of the protector was covered with washi tape and then a bow was tied with a heart gem added.

Gecko Galz - Angelic tag

Today I'm sharing another tag using pretty Gecko Galz papers and image. The Gecko Galz "Tag You're It" challenge is going on until December 30th. Don't forget to leave a comment on the Gecko Galz blog to be in the drawing for a daily prize. You also need to leave a comment on the design team member's blog who makes the tag each day.

Here is how I made my tag. I used a Ranger manila tag and covered it with Snowfall paper (from the Winter Wonderland paper pack). The angel image is from "Blue Christmas Icons". I fussy cut her and then put her on a white doily. The stars were punched from Provance paper (Vanity Fair paper pack). The word love is punched from Star Crossed paper (Star Crossed paper pack). I used a Teresa Collins punch for the word and a Stampin' Up punch for the stars.

Happy Holidays to all!
