A Little Note!

Hello Everyone!!  Today I was inspired by Iwona's Case Study challenge!  I really liked Julee's layout and colours, although I have modified mine a little.  :)  This also gave me the opportunity to play with the new JustRite Charmed cling stamps and matching Charm Dies!!!  YAY!!!  :)  These tags are so easy to create and perfect to add accents to your projects or just to add a little something to a treat bag or box!!  :)

The first thing I did was find the paper I wanted to use and built the card from there.  I decided to use some of the new My Mind's Eye Hattie Collection which now comes in 6 x 6 Paper Pads! {love}.  Then I had to find something to match it, LOL!  I managed to dig around and located some Baja Breeze which seems a great match, along with some Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla.  The horizontal panel has been punched with the MS Deco Fan Punch, added a little Swiss Dots embossing and a splash of ivory lace that my sweet friend Lori sent me!!  Over the top of the vertical panel I added some May Arts satin ribbon and created a bow.  I then stamped the Heart from the Charmed stamp set in Memento Rich Cocoa and cut it out with the matching Heart die from the Charm Die Set.
I then stamped it again in Celadon Versacolor ink and cut out the middle with Small Circle Nestabilities and popped it up on foam tape.  I tied some gold cord through the top of my charm tag and attached it to a button (also care of my friend Lori!) and adhered with a glue dot!

Stamps - Charmed (JustRite)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, MME Hattie Collection DP
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa, Celadon Versacolor
Accessories - Charm Dies (JR), MS Deco Fan Punch, Swiss Dots EF, Ivory Lace, May Arts Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Button, Gold Cord, Chocolate Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all from me today, hope you are inspired to stamp and thanks for visiting!!  :)
