30 Days of Inspiration- Day 27

Happy Saturday to you! :) I had such a GREAT day. I scrapped all day long and laughed with some friends. Laughter is so good for the soul. A little break from all the stress was just what I needed.

Okay, so onto the 30 DOI...I was reading THIS post by Dawn the other day and she enabled me...lol...I mean inspired me to purchase some of those Martha Stewart lace tags and play! So here is what I came up with...
A fun card set with a different opening than "normal". I dry embossed a small white card, embellished with the lace tag and heart and then attached it to a FLAT notecard so only the white part opens. Just mixing it up.

I used LOTS of distress inks to color the lace tags and hearts. There is just something special about distress ink mixed with Hero Arts goodies. :) I also sprayed the hearts with pearlized water. I love that look....
Here are the distress ink colors I used...
First Card: Lace-Tumbled Glass, Heart-Wild Honey
Middle Card: Lace-Chipped Sapphire, Heart-Barn Door
Last Card: Lace-Faded Jeans, Heart-Shabby Shutters
First Card: Lace-Shabby Shutters, Heart-Broken China
Middle Card: Lace-Scattered Straw, Heart-Dusty Concord
Last Card: Lace-Chipped Sapphire, Heart-Spun Sugar

Well, I hope I inspired you to do some creative play. I'm off to spend some time with my son and hubby. Have a great weekend!
