Tag for my sweetie

Good morning! It's been a very stressful week so far, but I hope things will calm down soon. Today is my last day at work and this means I will have some more free time. Well, sort of. There's still quite some renovation work to be done in the apartment, but the "yucky part" is already over (at least most of it). We've already bought some furniture as well and the rest we're going to buy in the following days.

Ok, enough of my babbling. Let's rather talk craft related things. :) First I have to tell you that I was chosen as one of the new DT members of Sweet Pea stampers challenge blog. :) And as the new challenge started today I want to show you the first project I made ...

The theme of the current challenge is "for the men/boys". You probably know that I don't make many cards (or other projects) for boys/men. So this one was a big challenge for me. Especially since all the Sweet Pea stamps I have are images of fairies or angels. So I had to think outside the box. I decided to make a tag for my sweetie - one that I can use on any occassion. I used Rachel Anderson's Mystic image and stamped it one the Sizzix design paper. Then I cut the door out and made it a border. I glued it on the piece of white cardstock and then cut the cardstock in the shape of the door. I embossed the tag with Cuttlebug's Swiss dots embossing folder. I wrote the sentiment by hand and then cut the eord out one by one, inked the edges, raised them on foam pads and glued them on the tag. Then I just added two foam hearts and a flower to decorate the tag. I hope my sweetie will like it!

I hope you will come and join our challenge.
Hugs! xx


  1. Cebelica, this is a lovely use of a Sweet Pea Stamps image. It's good to have images and take them on a different journey than what the artist might have thought. Sending you a warm welcome to the Sweet Pea Stampers Design Team and I shall look forward to working with you and seeing the cards/projects that you create. Best wishes, Kym xxx
