Papertrey June Blog Hop

Today is Papertrey's Blog Hop and I've been looking forward to it but too busy the last few weeks to pre-make a card.  Now my husband and I are at my daughter's helping her get ready to move in August. When I left my house I rapidly threw some stamps, ink and dies in a bag thinking I would borrow other stuff from my daughter.  So I planned out my card and went in search of her Cuttlebug. OK, found it in the box. Opened it up and there is no C plate.  Where is her C plate? How can I cut without a C plate?  She is an hour and a half away teaching at a music camp so I can't ask her. I tried to improvise but no go. Rats! I'm reduced to scissors! Arghh!!  So here is a pic of my simplified card, no fussy cutting for me,  taken with my phone.

I stamped the flower and then traced a tag die around it with a pencil. The flowers look red but they are really an orange color.  Then using my trusty scissors I cut out the tag. I punched a hole and added some twine. This little tag is popped up on dimensionals with the sentiment stamped below.

So it's clean and simple and I hope that you like it :-)

Stamps: Petite Pots (PTI)
Paper: White (PTI)
Ink: Terracotta Tile, Lemon Tart, Simply Chartreuse, Smokey Shadow (PTI), Versafine Onyx Black

What are these things you refer to called "scissors?" LOL! To think that's how many of us started and crafted for years without die-cutting machines! And you did a beautiful job with them, too, Deb! This is a gorgeous CASlicous card!! Hugs, Darnell

Oops, sorry Mom! I really do have a C plate on my craft shelf! I guess it's hiding. Your card is beautiful, even without the Cuttlebug!

This is adorable! And I can't believe you hand cut that tag; if you hadn't told us we'd never have known! :)
