Tassel Tail

Ever have one of those AHA moments when your in your craft room (or space) creating and something comes to you and you're like AHA let me try this... Well this is what happened to this card. Over at Curtain Call totally tassel is the challenge. I have every stamp I own an image stamped in a catalog so I can just look through it and see what I have. Looking  for tassel images I found I had none. :( but I thought about making a tassel and putting it on the card.. then I got distracted making this card for a friend of mine who is just precious and she loves fur babies. One of her fur babies is a horse who kinda looks like this. PLUMP is what she calls him. Well it was her birthday so I wanted to make a card for her. So that is when the AHA moment happend a tail could be a tassel. 

 The clouds are from Paper smooches and the Sentiment from Simon says stamp. 

This precious friend loves a certain verse in the bible and she wanted to me to make her some cards with that verse and I though why not make them for her for her birthday. So here they are. ( I apologize now for this long post.

I printed this verse from my computer on card stock 4 times then flipped them over and printed again 4 times and cut in half gave me 8 cards. Then I just started looking through my catalog for images that I thought would work to bring a sense of relaxation. 

I clear embossed each image and then watercolored them.

a little bit of wink of stella was used  on a few of the cards.

then I made a card box and tied it up with a ribbon. 

then I got a little more creative. I recently went to Chicago where my hubby is working and got to spend Mother's day weekend there. (it was fabulous). We got a bag full of some goodies for being Hilton honnors 

so I created a little circle that would just cover up the inside of the circle  but the bottom still says experiences worth sharing. I inked lavender around the edges to match the tissue paper

  1. Hi Leslee, you know I have to say, if I had to have had made a card for the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch this week, I would have used the EXACT same stamp set you did from the beautiful Seaside Sketches. It's the only one I own with a beach chair, so well done. Great minds think alike. Thanks for joining us this week at TSOT. Crystal
