Recent makes

Here are some things I've made recently

 This is an Anniversary card using the
'Vintage Telephone'
Bigz die by Tim Holtz/Alterations/Sizzix.

It's cut from mountboard and coloured with Distress Inks
before that I applied Distress Crackle paint (Clear Rock Candy).
The centre dial is just coloured with a gold marker.

The tag attached to the phone is from
'Odds and Ends CMS100'
stamp by Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz Collection.
It shows the date and the month of the anniversary.

I used the 'Vintage Typewriter' Bigz die
(Tim Holtz/Alterations/Sizzix)
for this birthday card.

It's basically a feminine version of the card
I made the other week.

Another birthday card, this time using an 'On The Edge'
die by Tim Holtz/Alterations/Sizzix called 'Sewing Edge'
 I rubber stamped some images onto tissue paper,
then using Liquitex matte medium stuck them onto
some patterned tissue paper.
The stamps used were 'Floral Dress Form' and 'Dress Form Row'
both by B Line Designs.
I machine stitched some fabric around the edge.

I think this may be another favourite die now
(how many favourites can I have - lol)

Finally - a matchbox, well I haven't made one for few weeks!

It is entirely covered with Sari Ribbons attached using 
hot melt glue, which amazingly doesn't show through the fabric.

 The sides and bottom of the drawer were painted with
Viva Precious Metal Colour (Emerald Green).

.... and filled with a selection of beads.

Thanks for looking - and I hope the sun is shining where you are
- it's been a glorious hot and sunny day here :)

All the cards are gorgeous, Sherry. I think the first is my favourite, although it is difficult to choose. Your matchbox is fabulous - I love sari ribbons, but I've never thought of using them like this.

Very beautifully busy! Love them all and that phone really has such a vintage look! The sewing edge die is also making it to the top of my list. Don't know if you saw the tag I did and used that for a shrink plastic embellisment! Too fun! Have a great weekend!
