Happy New Year – Spring is on it’s way

Hi everyone


Wishing you all Health and Happiness for 2018.

A huge thank you to friends and followers of this blog for your support, visits and comments last year. They really do mean a lot and are always truly appreciated.

I didn’t want to put out a blank post so today I thought I would share a tag I made recently for Crafty Individuals.

Really quick and easy this one.

Crafty Individuals stamps used:

Seven Cheeky Songbirds (postcard) stamp CI 230
Picket Fence CI 415
A Vintage Postcard (script only) CI 477

I stamped the picket fence along the bottom of the pre-cut card and then stamped just the flowers from the same stamp along the top.

I masked off the bird postcard image, using post-it notes, so that only the little birdies were showing, inked the stamp up, removed the masks and stamped the image.

Again, using post-it notes, I masked off some of the Vintage Postcard image so that just a little bit of script was showing, inked the stamp, removed the masks and stamped the script.


To finish off I coloured the stamped images, added some Distress ink splatters and a little ink around the outside edges, mat and layered the tag, punched a hole and added the string.

Thank you for looking.

I hope you all have a fantastic time during the New Years festivities.

Hugs Flo x

    Your words are so sweet and perfect to read at the beginning of a new year. Thank you, Florence for your delightful blog and creations – I always look forward to seeing them. The song-bird tag is so very pretty. I adore the little birds and the splattering and lettering remind me of little musical notes coming from their song. I also love the way you put different stamps together to make one beautiful item. Have the sweetest and most creative new year ever!
