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.

One more tag

Here is another tag I made using blue and orange. I did some spraying, stamping and masking (the lady). Then I added a die cut flower and items from my stash. A bit of orange ribbon finished it off.

Don't forget - you still have several days to enter a tag and possibly win the cute little owl that Chrissie made. Just add your tag, made with your favorite color combo, here.

Thanks for stopping by today!
