Tags or Toppers

The theme of the challenge this week on Make my Monday is Tags/Toppers and I think this card should qualify.  The topper was stamped with Stampin' Up Apothecary Art stamp set and cut out with the matching die set.  Flowers were coloured with alcohol pens and the larger layer of the topper has been embossed using the letterpress technique - two little banners form a 'ribbon' behind the topper.

A 'Case-d' Card for Snippet Challenge

This card was CASE-d from Sue Wilson's blog and she says these 'buckle' style designs are a favourite.  I certainly like the style but found it wasn't particularly easy to line up the various frames and glue them in place without either getting them skew whiff or getting glue everywhere - no doubt she has it off to a fine art!!  Although I started with new pieces of card I did use up some of the snippets for the smaller elements so guess it will fit the Pixie Snippets challenge this week - there is certainly lots of cutting involved.  Details of items used are below.

Background paper - Prima
Dies - Sue Wilson California and Austrian Collections
Corners - Whimsy dies
Sentiment - Stamp by Stampin' Up
