Distressed Tags!

Here are some distressed tags that I made for
another swap over at Scraps of Color...I
had so much fun with this swap...and I learned
so much from the Tim Holtz video's on
I decided to leave them un-embellished and attach
charms to them.

You can't really tell from the picture but these have a feel of old leather to them!

I did the distressing first then and once it dried I stamped it a
a clear butterfly stamp...then sprayed it with
some glimmer mist
Again here I distressed and let it dry and then added the stamped Martha Stewart (Love her stamp sets)
This is one of my favorites with the same process as above!
On all of thise tags I used the Tim Holtz's Distressing Inks
and on most of them I used Glimmer Mist! On the ones that have
the look of leather I embossed them
with one my Fiskar's embossing folders!
As I said I looked at several videos before starting this project!

Making earrings and having so much fun doing it!

Here are some earrings that are clip-ons that I made for My Mom!
These earrings were super easy to make....even though the clip on part came
with adhesive on them to make sure that they would stay together
I used E-6000 it great adhesive and works like a charm!
The day my mother received them in the mail she put them on
I was so happy to hear that she loved them!

Flowers for a swap on SOC

Here are some of the flowers that I made for a Swap......I had so much fun making these and learn some new tricks along the way!  Some I had to use my sewing machine for...Yeah! Always fun to break out the sewing machine...some were just done with plain old hot glue....but what really made it fun for me is now I know how to do my own flower embellishments!
