Home Baked with DCM



(sorry the image is slightly 'off'...difficult to photograph, will try again later once proper light gets here)

This weeks challenge over on Daring Cardmakers is Homebaked and its about creating a card featuring a homemade embellishment.

I made the bunch of lavender using wire and flowersoft.

The Lavender Sprig stamp is one of the Stampotique new releases this week from my collection. I'm really enjoying using this little Lavender- its a really handy little image.



The Dream word is using one of the new Tim Holtz punches.

I turned the tag into a card by creating an under layer so that the wording can be read more easily.

Wishing you all a good day ahead... I'm off to do a workshop!! Whahooooooo!! (will post about that later on :0) )

Love that lavendar sprig - your stamp and the bunch from flower soft! I didn't know the "dream" was available yet, that means I get to go shopping again! Have a great workshop.

Have a wonderful, wonderful, day at the workshop- wishing I could be there, but I'll be thinking of you and your lucky lucky ladies. I'd love to be a fly on the wall,

I just adore this tag card - at first glance I thought the dream was made out of clay! And I just adore lavender so the stamp is top of my list

Love what you've done with this tag Jo. I didn't think I really wanted those words dies from Tim Holtz's line, but now that I saw how you used it I think I've changed my mind. Your new stamps are wonderful btw.

Amy said...

I love it..it's so natural!

Karen said...

This is so lovely! Lavender sprigs are such a wonderful image, so evocative of the warmth and fragrance of the heat of summer. You've really captured it here and the gentle shades of red and purple and green really remind me of the plaster walls of my Tuscan villa....dreaming!

Elaine said...

Gorgeous work Jo. I love the way you have used your new stamp and it works brilliantly with the TH wording punch. So interesting to see Flower Soft used so effectively and yet not a twee design in sight!

Have a wonderful workshop - wish I was there too.
