By the Shore

The Gecko Galz customer challenge this month is "By the Shore". I made two cards for this theme and I'd like to share them with you.

The first card uses an image from Sea Side Icons. The image was sized, fussy cut and layered over a background oval, which I die cut out of "Beach Front" paper (By the Shore paper pack). I cut a second image of the girl and pop dotted her over the girl in the shell. I added a small doily behind her head first. The word "love" is punched from a Teresa Collins punch. I also added two small blue flowers above the word love. The card base is white.

The second card uses an image from the "Cuties by the Shore" collage sheet. The background paper is "In Marble Halls" which was embossed with a bubbles embossing folder. I added the Hello word sticker and some die cut seashells to the card. The card base is blue.

Next I have two cards made with images from the "Paper Lanterns" collage sheets. Background papers are from the Gypsy Market paper pack. Both card bases are white.

Use Your Scraps

I made another tag for Tag Tuesday's theme of Use Your Scraps. I have so many scraps that I keep them in a ten drawer cart. The drawers are organized by color - pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black and gray. The drawers are pretty full because I love to keep even the tiniest bits of paper!

For this tag, I made a grid style with the paper scraps. I added items from my stash and used colored pencils on the flowers and to outline the bird.

New Theme!!

We have a new theme at Tag Tuesday - Use Your Scraps. It can be paper scraps, ribbon scraps, images - just about any bits and bobs you've saved. Please link up a tag here and check out the nice prize you might win.

I clean my rubber stamps by stamping them onto scrap paper to get rid of excess ink. The background of this tag is made from a feather stamp. The birds are ripped from an old bird book. The word strip is from Tim Holtz. For the final touches, I added the blue heart and kraft bow.

In a Mermaid's Garden

Hi, I have three cards to share that I made using Gecko Galz products. Our customer challenge theme for this month is all about mermaids. There is still time to join us and possibly win a prize! Just click here and you will be linked to all the contest details.

My first card features a lovely GG mermaid image that I printed and then fussy cut. The oval shape is die cut from Fizzy Water which is from the By the Shore paper pack. Striped paper from the Sea Side paper pack was used for the background. The corners were punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The seahorse and coral were printed and then fussy cut from Sea Side Icons. All the pieces were layered onto a white card base.

Next I made two travel themed cards. The first is Amsterdam. Using the Roads Less Traveled collage set, I enlarged the Amsterdam image and adhered it to a red card base. The Dutch girl is from the Little Ladies from Around the World collage set. I die cut her and offset her onto the card. Finally, I added the words "Wish You Were Here", which is a wooden sticker from my stash.

For the second travel themed card I printed the Greece image from the Roads Less Traveled set and then layered it onto the Greece paper from the Great Adventure paper pack. Those two pieces were attached to cardboard and then a white card base. The final touch was the Greek statue (which I sized and fussy cut) from the Apothecary Labels collage set.
