STAMPlorations~ Sunday Stencil #66

Happy Sunday everyone! Sharing a tag I made for STAMPlorations Sunday Stencil #65. The designers have created some fabulous mixed media projects to inspire you. You can find them  here be sure to check them out and leave them some luv! :o) 

 I used Trendy Christmas Trees and Coordinating Die Set along with Bubbles Mini ARTplorations Stencil.

I started with  a #8 Manilla tag cut from Kraft and applied  some Design Papers from Recollections for the base which I distressed and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added some Viva Pearl Champagne Modeling Paste with the Bubbles Mini Stencil for added texture and shimmer.  

Then I cut pieces of DP and layered the strips onto the tags. I added Brushos in Leaf Green with some Twinking H20's in Gold and Forest Green to wet watercolor paper and stamped the trees with Black Archival Ink and cut the Trendy Trees out with the Coordinating Dies. I then layered them onto a Beaded Circle Die Cut and added some Stickles to give them some dimensionSome sentiments and snowflakes from the set added the perfect finishing touches along with some Crinkled Ribbon. 

Don't forget we have our

Two Paper Divas~ CAS Purple Simplicity

Good Morning everyone, I'm back to share with you a lil' Card I made for Two Paper Divas

using the new ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS set from October's New Releases. I just LOVE this sentiment and know I'll be using it quite a bit because It's all about the little things right? ;o)
I went with different shades of Purple (Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves) Distress Inks in order to participate in the THE HOP TO STOP 2016. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and this hop is designed to raise awareness about domestic violence, an issue that impacts 1 in 3 women, and the resources that are available to assist victims of domestic violence. So come play along and just remember to use Purple somewhere on your make. :o)

I used the shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord for my background and then went over a Dylusions Circles stencil with Seedless Preserves in random areas. A little purple washi tape was used to help position the focal point.  

sentiment in StazOn Gothic Purple on a circle die cut and matted it onto black and adhered it using foam tape for added dimension. A little Spellbinders Feather Die cut with purple twine finished it all off. I matted it all onto black CS and then a 4.25' x 5.5' purple base card. 
 Thank you for stoppin' by and be sure to join me next week to see another fun make using October's NEW RELEASES!!

Wait...don't forget to check out Two Paper Divas on the blog, FB, Instagram and Pinterest for more product information, DT Inspiration and New Releases.
