Where Flowers Bloom...............

Hi, dear Friends today I am stopping by to share my very first tag. Here in WNY we have had a frigid February apparently its the coldest month in the recorded history now thats something! this gloomy weather had been making most of us here very gloomy and down so I decided to make something cheerful with a hopeful greeting that may be, just maybe the temperatures are going to get warmer soon. So here is the tag..........

Products Used:

So I started with beautiful tag I recieved from Ann Butler, I used the art daubers and colored the tag using sunshine, tangelo and canyon inks, I then stamped using the basket stamps with night ink color. Now came the making's clay, I rolled out a piece of clay and cut out the flower shapes, then colored them using  Colorbox Crafters by Ann Butler in Canyon, Tangelo,Sunshine, Limelight and used iridescents powders to give the flowers a beautiful shimmer. Then added some stemps and leaves with making's clay. I embossed the sentiment on makings clay and attached it to the top of the tag.

Hope you enjoyed this project and thanks for stopping by.........

"Lovely Crafts Hop" Ann Butler - Clearsnap Hop

Hi Blog Friends! Its a blog hop hops are so much fun you get to see lot of creative adaptations of the same products, which I find very inspiring. So today I am sharing this canvas I prepared keeping in mind the season of LOVE, but this an art piece you can display year round because who does not need a little love everyday......

Products Used:
Ann Butler Design's Background Basics Stamps
Ann Butler Design's Art Screens- Waves
Ann Butler Design's Crafter's Ink limelight, Aquamarine, Canyon, Night, Berry
Ann Butler Design's EZ-De's alphabet stamps
Sisal Rope, paper roses, buttons, embossing paste, hot glue

So first I colored my canvas using Ann Butler Design's Crafter's Ink limelight and Aquamarine then stamped the Ann Butler Design's Background Basics Stamps checks stamp using night ink color

I then used the Ann Butler Design's Art Screens- Waves screen and applied some embossing paste to transfer my screen design on the canvas and also create some depth, once dry I colored it with Ann Butler Design's Crafter's Ink Canyon, I might be a little biased to this color. After that I dressed the canvas with some sisal rope, buttons, paper roses and the alphabets. Here are some close up shots
