Mustache Love!

New project posted!   Scroll down for Mustahe Love...

Late last night I finished my January tag for Tim's 12 tags for 2013.  Since I used a stamp from The Rubber Cafe' Vintage Treasures line - I thought I'd share it with you - 

If you remember Tesa used this same stamp earlier this week in her CAS card here.  I love this stamp but have to admit it's the first time for me to 'ink' it up!  I know now it won't be the last...

here's a closeup of that wonderful stamp - the 'smile' is a rub-on I had.

Our vintage stamps - really lend themselves well to all of the techniques inks, and embellishments from Tim Hotz' Ideology line and products.  So if you're a fan get 'em out and have fun mixing it up! 


Hi Everyone! - It's the last day of January and today I'm bringing you my first Valentine card!

The basis of my card is Jody Dougherty's new design stamp set for The Rubber Cafe' called - Pictures Framed.

You've heard of Muskrat love...  well today I give you "Mustache Love!"

Mustaches' have been all the rage lately so I decided to get busy with my Silhouette and cut myself a 'stache and some lips!  It seemed the perfect fit inside the opening of these adorable polaroid frames.

Some black and red baker's twine, carry the '&' for my 'his' and 'her' text stickers from Tim Holtz verbage stickers. These are so fun when you need small type!

The 'Love', 'You' is also stamped using the Pictures Framed set. By fussy cutting them out they look just like they were made with a label maker!   I used some fun heart shaped paper clips to hold them to the edge of my poloroid frames also from the Pictures framed set.

This is about as CAS as I get - and I love how this turned out with the white contrast against the deep red and black.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week!
