Teasers - Day 4!

I can't believe we're up to day four of teasers already! I have a couple of projects to share tonight, they're as different as night and day and that's what I love about My Favorite Things - there's something for everyone!
My first project is a tag that features Inspired by Spring. I love, love, love the images in this set! I'm just amazed at all the detail in the stamps, they're beautiful. I stamped the nest image and cut it out using the Textile Rectangle Die-namic. I added just a hint of colour to the eggs and the bird using watercolour crayons.

My second project features a new Claire Keay set - Hello Sunshine. You're going to fall in love with this adorable girl!
I coloured the image with SU markers and paper pieced the dress. There's the dizzy doily die-namic again - once this baby landed on my doorstep I couldn't stop using it!
Great sentiment, right? I've used the wonderful Open Zig Zag Die-namic again.

Here are the Die-namics I've used today:

That purple is so bright and pretty! And the first with the nest makes a beautiful tag.

Gabby said...

What a neat tag and your packaging looks great! I never thought to crinkle and use that shipping paper that I get in boxes, for wrapping paper! I was only using it for die-cuts and flowers and to make background paper for my cards! Thanks! Your second card is daring, bright, bold and funky--I like it! :)

jodylynn said...

Wonderful job, these are fabulous!

Crafty Math Chick said...

LOVE that tag! The images are so intricate they look terrific stamped on their own without any additional coloring, and they really jazz up that brown paper wrapped gift. I love the faux stitching around the edge of your card as well. I have really enjoyed seeing all your creations on the sneak peaks hops this month.

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

Really beautiful work here Sarah. I especially love the tag - what a wonderful stamp and the shabby package it is gracing is truly wonderful. What a great presentation! I'm definitely drooling...
