TGIF!   We have a two hour school delay today due to potential black ice.   I do not mind delays.   It gave me time to get crafty last night.   I am playing along with a couple of blog challenges.  I love the fun sketch this week from MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and the colors from The Color Throwdown were too good to resist.

I am using My Favorite Things stamps products unless otherwise noted.  I started with MFT Card stocks in  kraft , smooth white, nightshift blue, and red hot card stock.    I die cut the nightshift blue with pierced traditional tags stax.  I stamped the edges with blanket stitched image from Stitched with Love stamp set with versamark and heat embossed with Recollections aqua embossing powder.  I layered Blueprints 20 rectangle quilted die cut in smooth white.  I inked distressed the edges.  

 I added the die cut element in red hot card stock from Blueprints 15 to comply with the sketch.  I white embossed the sentiment from Stitched With Love stamp set.  I layered the die cut elements from from Stitched With Love die namics.  I die cut the needle with silver foil card stock.  I added some dyed to match threading using Blu Raspberry premium ink refill.  The tag top reinforcement circle was die cut from pierced circle stax in red hot card stock.   I finished the tag with a few buttons and some hemp cording.  

I added the tag to the kraft card base.  I die cut the scalloped panel from Blueprints 20.  I inked the edges with versamark and some distressed ink.  I layered a stitched panel from Blueprints 22 that I embossed with Quilt Square Cover Up   turned at a slight angle for some added interest.  I really love how this whole card with tag turned out. 

A couple of weeks ago I needed to restock some of my stamping supplies so I clicked over to Starlit Studio.  Aside from some awesome customer service and fast shipping, the prices are absolutely amazing!   I was able to restock some of my "go to" stamping supplies like  TomBow Mona Aqua glue, Glue Dots, Mini Glossy Accents, and  X-Press It  foam mounting tape.   I was also able to pick up a few of My Favorite Things stamps and dies while perusing  the sight!

As always thank so much for stopping by!
