Love Tags

I saw this tag done over at SCS during Christmas and thought I try a Valentine one. A shorter version. What do you think? I like it a lot. Very simple and nice. Each tag measures 2" x 3 1/2" and the total length of the tag is 10" scored at every 2".

Happy Stamping!

Artfully Asian Thank You

Made this "thank you" card with all retired products. I have enough to make 10 and a friend made 2 for herself. We had fun stamping together.

I'm trying to clean out my stamping space and wherever I leave my stamping stuff. i.e all around the house. I took most of the space in the house and it is time to get rid of somethings. How about a blog candy? I just have to get organize and take a picture of the blog candy. I'm not sure when yet but maybe sometime next week.

Come and visit often. Your comment are always welcome!

Accordion Flower Tutorial

Hello, everyone! I had a lot of people asking questions on how I adhere the accordion flower. So, I made a tutorial. Hope this helps. It is pretty easy to make .

Score a piece of 1"x12" piece of designer paper at 1/4".

Fold the score lines like an accordion. Put sticky strip on one end of the designer paper.

This is how it looks like when the ends are tape together.

This is how it look like when you push it down and in towards the middle. It will pop back up like the previous photo when you let it go.

Punch out a 3/4" circle piece of card stock and add Crystal Effect. 
ETA: You can also use glue dots or hot glue to adhere the circle piece to the flower.

Put the accordion flower onto the 3/4" circle piece, push it in so the hole in the middle is small, and hold the flower for at least 1 minute or until the CE is dry. Make sure the flower is even and round all around.

This is how it looks on the back.

For the front I stamped a flower image, cut it out and adhere to a piece of Brocade Blue circle cardstock.

I pierced the edges with a piercing tool. Then, I adhere the top piece onto the flower with Crystal Effect. This keeps the accordion stay together and very sturdy.

Finish product. I made another one with a heart button I found in my stash of buttons.

If you want to see this flower on a card click here or scroll to the previous post. Have fun creating your own accordion flower.

Happy Stamping!
