PTT Challenge #192 Anything Goes Theme

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog.  This is weekly Anything Goes Challenge Blog and we’d love to have you come over and join the fun.

This month, My Artistic Adventures is sponsoring our PTT challenges and I am working with one of Heather’s beautiful vintage digi collage sheets.  There are tons of fabby options, so head on over and take a look!  You know I like to have a stash of great digi’s on hand for quick projects.

I used the Victorian Christmas Blue Birds Music Tags Collage Sheet to create my holiday ornament.

I printed the images 4 times and I fussy cut the bird in the forefront and some of the leaves and shaped them a bit and popped them up on foam tape for some dimension.  The ornament is double sided and the sides are adhered together with foam tape.  I used 1/8″ Scor-Tape around the outer edge and adhered some blue glass beads on the edges as an accent.
I fashioned a wire holder with some blue glitzy wire I found in my stash and added some Silver Metallic String from Really Reasonable Ribbon for hanging it.  Then I made a tiny little double-loop bow using 3/8″ Blue Topaz Satin with Silver Metallic Edges on my Bow-it-All V2.0 for the bottom corner.
Perfect for a little gift wrap tie-on for a special friend who can then add it to their holiday tree.
I hope you’ll head over to the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog and play along with our challenge this week.  We’d love to see what you are creating.
Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Christmas Card and Tags

Today I’m guest designing over on the My Artistic Adventures Challenge Blog and the theme for Challenge #13 is Christmas/Winter.  I’d love to have you head on over and take a look and maybe even play along!

Those of you who follow my blog know I love to have some great digital images and collage sheets on hand so I can whip up a quick project when I’m short on time and Heather has lots of great options in her Etsy store My Artistic Adventures.

Heather also has a FANTASTIC GIVEAWAY going on right now. 

She is giving away a $50 gift certificate for collage sheets at her etsy shop.  It’s very easy to Enter to Win.  What a fabulous prize!

I used the new Pink Victorian Vintage Holly Christmas Season’s Greetings Gift tags Ornament 3 Digital Collage sheets for my projects today.

My ribbon and lace is from the Really Reasonable Ribbon November Ribbon Club Assortment.  I ran a strip of the natural crochet lace around the center of the card and the brown shimmer satin topped with the tan/brown diagonal stripe satin above it.  The pretty triple-loop bow was made with my Bow-it-All V2.0.  Love that tool!!
I used my Zutter Distrezz-it-All to distress the edges of the paper.  Such a quick and easy card!
Here is a little tag set made with the same collage sheet.  They are little top fold tags so you can write a sweet message on the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Stop over at the My Artistic Adventures Challenge Blog and see what the other DT girls created.  I’ll hope you’ll play along with this challenge too!
