And there's more!

Another day and more to show.

This idea for a pop up tag card came from the lovely ladies over on the Simply Sassy blog with instructions to follow here.  The Sassy blog is a great blog to follow as they have great ideas and lovely tutorials to help.

I have used stamps from Andy Skinner A Stitch in Time, black StazOn. 
Ranger distress inks Fired brick and Spiced Marmalade.
Button and Idea-ology fragment from Tim Holtz range.
Spellbinder circle nestabilities (top of tag).
Seam binding, threads and sewing machine charm from my stash.

This card is really easy to make with just a bit of scoring to do, it also folds flat so good for posting unless you are like me and pop on embellishments! 
I don't do flat! 
Well not often.  LOL.

On to my next card:

For this card I have used my wonderful Grand calibur and die Grand Scalloped Ovals scored in half plus Nestabilities Labels 14.
Distress inks Stormy sky and Vintage photo.
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Grungeboard Elements plain for the wings with Rock candy Distress stickles.
Stamp sentiment from Andy Skinner Flight of fancy.
Ribbon from stash.

I thought the sentiment went really well with the wings and could be used as an inspirational card to offer someone encouragement. 
You can send a card for all manner of reasons can't you?!
I also like the fact that it can rock and we discussed this die at the demo day and thought it would also make a great New baby card with a Rocking horse theme...watch this space!  LOL.
Must now go and get some work done catch you tomorrow.
