Hello all! It's been a little quiet here on the ol' blog. I don't know what's going on, but I've been so busy and haven't been home much. I can't wait for things to settle down a bit.
This week is Trend Week over at Just Us Girls. Sue chose a great one that we've been seeing a lot...pineapples.
I wasn't sure I even had anything pineapple, then remembered I had purchased this stamp and die set from Essentials by Ellen. Score! I decided to make a tag. I first put three distress paints down on my craft mat and spritzed it with water then dragged the tag through it. I liked the effect I got. Then I stamped and die cut the pineapple and adhered it with dimensional tape. The sentiments were stamped in black ink. The colors looked a little flat, so I spritzed everything with shimmer spritz. It's subtle, but really pretty. Then I added the Nuvo drops, sequins, and ribbon. I thought this would be cute to attach to a bag with some pina colada mix in it!
You can see more from the JUGs DT and our October guest on the JUGs blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
