Lili of the Valley Bear Tag/Note Card Tin Set.

I have finally finished this ADORABLE lili of the valley Tin Set!!! I covered the tin with "kraft paper" and then inked it with vintage ink to age the edges. I clear embossed the snowflakes onto the paper for some shine and demention and i just like how it looks!
I colored the images with color pencils and OMS. and aged the embossed images and added some stickles to the snow flakes . I punched out some snowflakes, aged them in some ink and then added a little rhinestone to each center.

The cards and tags all match the tin, with the clear embossed snowflakes, the images. I added aged lace to the gift tags, and a strip of scrapbook paper to the bottom of the note cards.
I LOVE this set...and happily it is SOLD!

A Few Projects....

I have not been feeling well lately and i have an appointment with the Doctor on Wednesday to see what is up. I have Hashimotos Thyroid disease, an auto immune disorder/ thyroid issue.(my body is killing my thyroid gland) I also have suffered for the last probably 5 years from Fibromyalgia. So with all that and not feeling well...i have not had much energy to do much. So these projects have been going on for a few weeks and i finally finshed them up tonight.
The first project i have is a cute little 3x3 note card set. I stamped up this cute little snowman and painted him with my liquid snow. Added soem fun flocks to the scarf and colored with colored pencils and OMS. Added a plastic snowflake that i covered with some superfine glitter..(I will say...i feel like tinkerbell since getting this martha stewart glittler set.....i seem to be covered in glitter , i shed glitter and spread it allllllll around ....the stuff is fun...but a little annoying! LOL)I added a cute little wooden bead to the snowmans hat for some demention. The little purse was cut from my nestibilities set, cutting 2 sizes, and adding some coordinating paper for the handles and side panels. I added eyelets and these cute plastic snow flakes that i glittered up (or should i say they glittered ME up). Cute little set of 5 cards and holder. Will list it on etsy soon.

Also shown is a card i made tonight with my new stamps from Liliofthevalley. I love this little bear! I stamped him up and colored him with colored pencils and OMS. I also added alittle white fun flocks to his cap and some more liquid snow to the ground and sticklesto the snow flakes. I used an aged tag that i made with instant coffee and baked it in the oven. I then used the edge of one of my nestibilites dies to make the edge of the tag seem worn. I added a bit of vintage ink to add more age to it. Stamped Happy Winter and then clear embossed some snowflakes to it as well. I love how it turned out and might make another just like it to keep for myself. Will list this one as well on etsy.

Then there is the frame i made up for Melinda. I have seen some cute vintage frames done up with bird themes so thought i would give it a go with what i had on hand. Melinda saw the beginnings of it and decided she wanted it! So that worked for me. I added some 3D effects, clear embossing on the eggs for some shine, the chipboard balloon with SWEET stamped to it and the chipboard letters spelling out HOME. I added some paper flowers i cut out with my nestibilites dies and embossed them and added a little ink to age them a bit, added some brads and a big epoxy dot to the main flower. Some rusty shiney ribbon, some pinecones, twigs and a little banner saying "this songs for you" which i aged with some tattered angels glimmer mist. So now all that is left is to do is box it up and mail it off!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to find out what is making me so weak and get on with feeling better and getting things done! I hope to be back soon with some more cards from my new liliofthevalley stamps!
