Fabulous Fuchsias

I made this gift tag for my sister's birthday present using lots of snippets and a set of new to me 'pre-loved' stamps.

I covered a piece of white card with a snippet of cream paper and die cut the tag. I put the tag into my MISTI and stamped 'sister' in the lower corner -stamping a couple of times to get a good deep colour before embossing it with clear embossing powder. I stamped the flower with purple ink and the leaves with green ink before embossing them with clear embossing powder and cutting them with the coordinating dies.  I attached the leaves across the tag and trimmed the stem on the right side so it was flush with the side of the tag.  The flower was attached with a foam pad.  To finish I threaded a snippet of white ribbon through the top.

To make this card I used:
     Clearly Besotted 'Fabulous Fuchsias' stamps and coordinating dies
     Clearly Besotted 'Happy Birthday All' stamps
     Versafine Imperial Purple and Olympia Green ink
     Cosmic Shimmer clear detail embossing powder
     Snippets of white card, cream paper and white ribbon

I am entering the following challengs:
     Allsorts - Feminine/For a Lady
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - July Challenge
     NBUS - Challenge 28 (my fuchsia stamps and dies)
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 408

This will be my last post for a while as we're heading off in our campervan again.

Such a pretty fuchsia and leaves Kath and fit perfectly on the tag and look great using those two colours of Versafine ink. The perfect accompaniment to your sisters's present. x

I love this, more work than it looks to a non crafter but I can appreciate it.

This is such a pretty feminine tag for your sister, Kath! I love that fuchsia and I'll bet it is even lovelier and more dimensional in person. Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
