Two-fer Tuesday...

Tonight I've got a cute little tag & another last-summer catalogue card submission to show you!

First up, a Just Because Genevieve card:) I was so sad when we were told that this paper line was discontinued... it is SO pretty... I have been hoarding every little scrap of it.

I'm not overly thrilled with this card, but it does show off that yummy paper :)

Stamps: Tag Tidbits, All Occasion Circles, Floral Dingbats (retired)

Paper: Amberley Grace Cardstock, Genevieve
(retired)

Ink: Violete & Landscape Palettes (I think!)
Other: Willoughby Ribbon, Extra Jumbo & Super Jumbo Flower Punches, circle punches, foam tape

Next up, this cute little tag! Actually, it's a pretty big tag... it started as a card, but ended up a tag... who knew :)

The background is another that I had demo'd at one of my Hostess classes. It uses a brayer, Kaleidacolor pad, water mister & Oxi-clean granules. Salt creates a similar effect, so you could use it in a pinch... get it... pinch of salt... I know, "what a goober".

Stamps: Skinny Birds, Great Greetings

Paper: Glossy & White UltraSmooth cardstocks, Mulberry Meadow cardstock (retired)

Ink: Noir Palette, Autumn Leaves Kaleidacolor Pad

Other: Stardust clear glitter gel pen, Grey Tombow marker, In Bloom & Elizabeth Blossoms & Buttons, Prismacolors w/ mineral oil, misc. rick-rac, Yellow Scrapper's Floss

What do you think?
