Picture using some of your favorite color sprays on these babies.... wow!!! ❤
For today's hop, each designer was challenged with creating a Fall tag. The base of my tag was created using one of my AccuCut Envelope and Tag die-sets. The paper collection is by Authentique (LOVE this paper!) The butterfly (wings) was cut out using a Spellbinders Shapeabilities die set, the sentiment is from My Favorite Things, Inspired by Autumn, the pennants were cut using My Favorite Things Mini Pennants Die-namics and the letters were stamped using the MFT Typewriter Alphabet set...
I just LOVE making this Puffy Daisy layered flower. This time I used 2 of my Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst sprays -- Dark Chocolate Truffle and Red Hot Poker Orange. I LOVE this combo of Fall inspired colors. I have a tutorial on how to create this layered Puffy Daisy HERE. In the center of the Puffy Daisy, I added a metal button from my stash that I colored up with my Rub n' Buff in Antique Gold. To the left of the Puffy Daisy, are 3 small semi-open roses that were white, but I painted them with my Red Hot Poker Orange Starburst Stains. The crystal sprays and wheat leaves are from KARLAS001's Etsy. Back behind the flowers are some brown rose leaves and tan cherry blossoms (all I Am Roses products will be linked at the end of this post.)
Here's a peek at the banner, anchored by more Cherry Blossoms. The seam binding was stained using more Dark Chocolate Truffle and Red Hot Poker Orange Starburst Sprays by Lindy Stamp Gang.
I love this sentiment from MFT... I added a few fall leaves from I Am Roses under the stamped sentiment...
Thanks for letting me share my project with you today!
