Tag Tuesday Challenge - Glitter!

This week's challenge over at Louise's blog is to use some glitter in your tag. I just bought the Oxford Impressions Farm Boy and Country Girl stamp sets and really wanted to use them.  I adore the rooster and decided to use him as the focal point. I stamped him on muslin, colored with pencils and sewed him on with the burlap. The chicks I stamped, colored, cut out and glued on. The chicken wire background on my tag is from Lost Coast Designs. I used that one, instead of the OI stamp, because it was alot bigger and I had a big stamp this week. I added glitter to the chicks and rooster. Unfortunately, I have not been able to scan cards/tags when I stamp on muslin, it just doesn't come out clear for me. So I have to take a picture, which is not as crisp :(   Enjoy! Thanks for your comments.

Oxford Impressions Stamps

I just got the Farm Boy and Country Girl series of stamps from Oxford Impressions. They are a great set and look like they are going to be a lot of fun to play with. I made this card today for my brother-in-laws birthday. The boys are stamped on muslin, colored in with pencils and sewn on to the card along with the burlap piece. The background is one of my hand painted pieces. Enjoy!

New Cards

Here are 5 more cards made with a handpainted background. Most of the stamps are stamped on a type of mulberry paper and then glued to the background.

Alice in Wonderland Cards

I just created these Alice cards from the new Alice in Wonderland series from Lost Coast Designs.  They were a lot of fun to make and really got my creative juices flowing!

Stamping on Muslin

I had seen a card of Lynn Stevens that I loved where she had used a transfer of a stamp with gel medium on muslin. I loved the look and have been using more fabrics and sewing in my cards. So I bought some muslin and just stamped this face on it. I colored it in slightly - lips and eyes and sewed it to my card. The background is, of course, the ND Handpainted Paper that has pieces of the telephone book in the background. I just LOVE the gesso on these backgrounds. I glued on some prima flowers, beads and a red heart. I wanted to tie in the subtle red that is in the background paper. The first background is different than the latter two cards.

Tag Tuesday Challenge - Inspire Me!

Louise's Challenge this week was to use an inspiring quote on your tag.  My Mom had this quote on her desk and I always loved it.  I used a piece of my New Delhi Handpainted paper for the background. The butterfly stamp is from Savvy Stamps. I bought these pretty corsage pins the other day and decided to use it on my tag with a piece of lace. Enjoy!

Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee

From this point forward, the deli paper will be referred to as New Delhi Handpainted Paper to make it sound more exotic!!!
I used the ND paper for this card as the background. The T Dum and T Dee stamp is from Lost Coast Stamps.
I colored them in, cut them out and glued them to a ripped piece of lavender mulberry paper that I had glued onto my background. I added the pom poms, yarn, flower and Happy Birthday! This card is for my Dad's birthday on friday.

Shabby Tea Room

I decided to enter The Shabby Tea Room's week 3 Challenge - Lets Get Scrappy!  I was inspired by Jean Franks Beck's entry on her blog. It was fun to go through my scraps and decide what to put together. The stamp is from Oxford Impressions and is stamped on a glossy sheet.
Here it is:
