Allsorts ch 20 & BTC&C ch 1

I have been making a few tags, I really enjoyed working with something different other than cards. This is for the Allsorts ch 20 & By The Cute And Girly ch 1 the theme is Autumn or Fall if your from America. Love that, Fall so nice think immediately of falling leaves, any way back to the tag. I have to add that the new challenge blog is AMAzing not just cards but a true crafty challenge blog with lots of prizes and the DT are SO amazing and talented please go have a look!
I have used a new Stamp set from Stampin' Up! (SU) it is a level 3 hostess gift if you would like to know more about becoming a hostess or even a virtual hostess e-mail me at I love SU and the new catalogue is really super, with lots of new stamps, of course and wonderful new DPs, if your anything like me where papers are concerned you will love them. I hope to put the New Catalogue up on my side bar later today so you can all have a nosey. It is SO worth a look.
I hope you can see all the details from the close ups the flower is actually TWO stamps one an out line and one the solid flower so you can have it any colour to match with your SU things be it LOs or Cards or even tags lol. I have used other stamps from SU in clear EP to give a texture to the back ground. I hope you like this tag as a change from cards, I really enjoyed making it. Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Clear EP, versamark, Stamp set SU level 2 hostess gift 'Garden Dream' & SU 'Touch of Nature' in the back ground with versamark and clear EP. Inks SU, staple from Making Memories and ribbon from stash.

Hi Dawn

I am a bit slow in commenting as I have been away for two weeks and only just returned. Sorry!

I love your tag. So gorgeous using beautiful colours and so much texture and dimension.

Thank you for taking part in the very first "By the Cute & Girly" challenge. I hope you play along again next month (or later this month if you get the urge!).

I noticed that you also entered your creation into the Allsorts Challenge too. I missed commenting for this too - well done on a double entry!

Love Jules xx

Fantastic tag - I'm with you, card making can get so boring, it's nice to do something else!

I hope you keep this for yourself, there's obviously a lot of thought and hard work gone into it!

Thanks for joining us at BTC&G

Luv Rach x
