Tomorrow (Thursday) is the day for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. Joan announced last week that this will be the last week for both the card and tag challenges until next Fall. For this week, both the Tag and Card Challenges will be combined. For this challenge, we are asking you to create both a Tag and a Card which will be posted separately; one in the card challenge and one in the tag challenge. There are no specific challenge rules - only that you make a matching tag and card. For each set you enter, you will be eligible to win one of the beautiful new Marianne Embossing Folders (retail value $30.00). The winner will be chosen by a random drawing, held on Thursday May 26.
For my matching tag and card, I used stamps from the new Heartfelt Creations "Bella Rose Collection". For the card I used both stamps from the "Bella Rose Vase PreCut Set". The baby's breath was stamped with VersaMark Ink and white embossed on a piece of purple card stock. The vase of roses was stamped on white card stock, colored with Copic markers and cut out. Two additional roses and one set of leaves were cut from a second stamped image and attached with dimensional tape. Two Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" corners were added. A Martha Stewart double punched border was added with a piece of ribbon attached across the middle with ScorTape. The design paper has squares on it and large rhinestones were added to each square down the sides.
The tag was created with the Heartfelt Creations "Tea with Bella PreCut Set". This is the set with the tea cup with a rose at the base of the cup. I used this rose for my tag. The same design paper was used for the tag. Two of the small Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" were added to the top corners. The "Accent" for the sentiment is also from this Spellbinders die set. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations "Springtime Cardinal Collection". It was cut out with a circle Nestability, sponged and attached with dimensional tape to the Parisian Accent. Matching rhinestones were added to the bottom. Purple ribbon was added to the top of the tag.
I'm sure all of you would love to have one of the beautiful new Marianne Embossing Folders ($30 value) so I hope you will enter both a card and a tag for a chance to win. I will be looking forward to seeing your beautiful entries. Please go over to Joan's Gardens blog for all the details and links for this week's challenges.
