I'm so excited to tell you the news about Our Craft Lounge. We have a new design team and some fun things to do over at the OCL forum!
First of all let me show you my tag I made with the Going Gourmet stamp set. The wine bottle, grapes and cheese images in this set are what I used to make this tag to put on a bottle of wine for a gift. I used the little swirl and grape strip stamps for the background.
I made the lace flower by stitching the edge of the lace and gathering it to form the flower. I colored a white Prima flower with a Copic marker to match. The lace flower is glued to a scalloped cardstock flower I cut with my Big Shot and die. The tag is sponged with Ranger Distress inks and stamped, there is patterned paper on it and the 2 images are popped up.
I cut some paper & card stock with the SU! Bigz Top Note die and put across the bottom and a piece along the side in green.
Supplies: Stamps - OCL Going Gourmet. Paper - GP white, MME Penny Lane, SU! Eggplant. Ink - Ranger Distress Black Soot, Antique Linen, Shabby Shutters, Dusty Concord, Milled Lavendar, Copic markers. Acces. - tag, lace, Glossy Accents (on the wine bottle and glass images), white cotton string, tiny white tag (For you), dangly crystals, button, Prima flower, ribbon, SU! big eyelets (top & bottom of tag).

I was out in my yard getting a picture of the hot pink rose bush and this mocking bird in the cedar tree was giving me grief!
I found out why, look at these 2 babies in the bush, this bush is a huge climber and there is a nest in there somewhere. I would think that would be a painful place to live with those thorns, but, momma bird may have chose that bush for that reason, the thorns might keep critters out of the nest!
I hope you have a great day, have fun blog hopping today!
