Welcome to my little ole' stamping blog! I'm so glad that you stopped by! I have lots of creative things to share with you with the occasional life post thrown in! Come on in, relax and stay awhile! :)

Sunday, October 10, 2010're it!

Hello! Another successful weekend under our belts! Lots going on and lots accomplished! I love productivity almost as much as I love creativity! :)

I wanted to share the birthday tag I made to go with yesterdays birthday card. I used the carnation flower technique but with the X-Large flower punch instead of the spiral circle. Worked like a charm! Not sure whose idea it was originally, but I love it!! 8 layers and a brad later I had a beautiful flower! I mixed the colors to give it some pop and I used Cuttlebug dies to cut the letters out. Here is the finished tag:

A close up of the flower:

I have made an effort to spend a little bit of time every day this month doing some sort of craft project! I think it has been good for me! Being creative is good therapy! If you haven't done anything crafty today I encourage you to take some time out of your day and go for it! Set a 20 minute timer and make someone special a card or work on a scrapbook page! You will be glad you did! :) Have a crafty day! I will be back soonest!
