A black tag !!!!

I have more to show   Yes products from my favorite shop !!!!!
playing around with the gorgeous 75 cents collection from Kaisercraft

I loved the idea of using a Inkssentials Black Tag #8
and Inkssentials black ATC with this delicious Kaiser collection

From the 61/2 inch pad I cut one of the pattern papers 6 1/2 x 13 1/2. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and then placed Black Rhinestone Chain down each side.
I have used the ATC as a matt for the pattern paper which I have rubbed using the Tim Holtz ink blending tool and Vintage Photo Distress Ink, which has accentuated the embossing on the paper.
I have used the Idea-Ology Ornate plate as a frame over the butterfly cut-out from the paper pad, then placed the ATC on the tag with foam tape.

and lastly added the creamy butter cherry blossom and moss green cherry blossom, brown scalloped edged organza ribbon and Brown Rhinestone Chain.

I finished off by inking all edges using Versa baby blue ink.

Some new products !!!!!

Hi yes it is me finally with another post.
I have been playing with some products from my2Angels.  Tracy has a new range called Sugar beads and I have used the Creamy Latte Mud cake!!!!  Fun and different and yes you will see me using these on several projects.

Popping in to show off the delicious Creamy Latte Sugar Beads, which I used to alter a note pad.

All the papers are from the Kaiser 75 Cents Collection.
I covered the front of the notepad with Penny and then cut a rectangle of Tuppance, that is slightly larger than a pretty butterfly die cut piece of Guinea. I diagonally overlaid these on one another, so that you can see both of them clearly.

I then punched a decorative edge from the left-over piece of Penny.
Using Dimensional Magic, I glued the Creamy Latte Sugar Beads and Charming Rose Chain (from the Aunty Pack) to the bottom of the oval pattern on the die cut.

Again using Dimensional Magic, I glued the sugar beads around a 'note' card and inked all edges using Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink.

Finally, I glued and positioned all the pieces together and added a touch of lace.

A couple of cards to share !!

Thought I would share a couple of cards I have made I have set a card challenge for February at Jellybeans
and most of the products are available at  my2angels

Hello everyone !!! I have been busy making a few projects for my2angels which is my favorite online shop.
Tracy gives the best service and her prices are the cheapest !!!
I totally fell in love with this 75c Kaiser range. The colours are fabulous and the detailed patterns are very earthy and arty - so of course I wanted to do an OTP with them.
I found a cute size box at home and grabbed a few more supplies from my2angels and this is what I created.

kaisercraft 75c collection

All the papers are from the 75c collection - so I did plenty of mixing and cutting. I wanted feet on the box, so with Tracy’s help, she came up with the clever idea to use Filigree Borders for my feet.

kaisercraft 75c collection

For the top I used an Antique Bronze large flower filigree,
and the butterfly and clock are from the Collectibles embellishment packet.

To create the top, I folded back a paper corner and then punched three holes through which to thread the Cappuccino Bakers Twine, silver key charm and Tim Holtz Trinket pin.
Around the edge of the box I used Brown Acrylic Rhinestone chain to embellish it.

and the inside of my box
