When Vintage Meets Shaker !! Tags with Cricut Explore Air 2 and items from my Stash

Ohhh Child! 
Have you ever gotten so inspired by what you are making that you ask yourself, "Honey child!! Did you make that??"
Well, I had that type of fun making these gorgeous tags!! It was truly a great project from beginning to end. For all of these tags, I used my Cricut Explore Air 2, and Design Space, as well as a combination of frilly and delicate dies from my stash.

This one was all about Vintage Charm, and thanks to my Cricut, and some tulle, I was able to easily make this into a shaker card with lots of delicate bits of glimmer and sequins. I began using oxide ink to give it a smoky weathered look. For the background I used a large Stampin' Up stamp, I added embossing enamel on the edge for a bit of texture and shine,some sparkly glitter, and free-handed some lace designs with black ink.  The hat shape also got dressed up with small gems, and mulberry flowers. Lastly, some elegant touches of pearls finished off this tag. 


These other darlings also took a turn getting all gussied up. I made handmade flowers with several dies, stamped the backgrounds, dressed them up with lots of added texture with vintage laces, silk trim, pearls, gems, glitter, a felt flower from Petaloo, small glass beads, and acetate, as well as rub-on images. These tags represent everything I love about being feminine, and shabby!

Who doesn't love a vintage phone?

This lovely birdhouse is backed with vellum, and then topped with tiny enamel pearls.

This vintage Camera on a Tripod was transformed with tiny glass beads!

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
