Tissue Flower & Butterfly

"Today belongs to you"
  Made this birthday tag for Courtney, Mike's "niece". She's 27, and she's actually Mike's cousin, but she "feels" more like a niece. Her mum, Janette and Mike are only 6 or so years a part and grew up together like brother and sister.

  I stamped the large flower on Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap - Melange about 3 times ; sprayed with Glimmer Mists ; cut them out then layered them. 
  The orange bead embellie is from Michaels. I also added some white gel pen dots. The smaller flowers were also stamped once on the tag; then again on the tissue wrap; sprayed with Glimmer Mists ; paper pieced on tag. 
  The ribbon is Hug Snug dyed  with DI (can't remember the colour!) Added a bit of lace at the bottom of the tag.
  The butterfly is cut out of the tissue wrap; sprayed with Glimmer Mists; added a pen nib. Also used some doodle rub-ons around the tag. The tag is from the Prima Julie Nutting Tag Pad, which has a design on the front of it already.


  The back of the tag is more of the tissue wrap scrunched and glued onto the tag. Gorgeous big butterfly! I added a personal greeting with some doodle.  

  Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Wrap - Melange. Comes on roll with a cutting edge, just like wax paper. There are 2 other designs, which I must get!

  Autumn Leaves Clear Stamps - Doodle Bloom set. This is the flower set, which has become my fav (right now!). I got this at the annual yard sale at my local paper craft story,  The Cutting Garden, for only $2.00! A friend of mine bought this set at Wallmart last year for the same price. Love this set! 

  The sentiment is from this set called, "Thoughts For The Day" by Inkadinkadoo. I love all the different sentiments in this set. Different.

Time Traveler Tag

  Can't get enough of these guys! He is the other fellow in the stamp set by Tim Holtz, "Time Travelers". I made this for a friend's birthday.
  I paper pieced him using papers from the KaiserCraft Sears & Sons 12x12 paper set. Paper on tag is also from the same set. Love this paper!

Other stuff I used:
- Sentiment stamp, "You're not old..." is 7Gypsies
- Magic Mesh, "Copper Fine Weave"
- Burlap
- Binding Edge punch
- Ornate On The Edge Sizzix/TH punch
- Twine
- TH Game Spinner, Mini Paper Clip 
- Gear
- TH Filmstrip Ribbon
- Rub-Ons are TH Remnant Rubs Elements
- Word Trinket "Vintage" is TH
- Vintage Photo DI

  The metal thingy around the hole is from a metal sheet I embossed with TH Retro Circles Texture Fade and I never used it. Dug it out and cut out one of the circles.

The back with kraft mini bag and sentiment tag

 The front of the sentiment tag. Happy Birthday stamp is from Michael's $1.50 bin. Crown is a TH rub-on.
 The other side of the tag where you can write a greeting. The tag is a TH Journaling Ticket, covered on one side with the same paper.
