My Cards and Tags: I Love You More than Bacon

It's been raining here all evening, so I decided to sequester myself in my craft room (like I need an excuse!) and play with my newly acquired "Tape It Kit" from Lifestyle Crafts.  It Kits are awesome because you get a ton of similarly-themed dies for a reasonable price.  The "Tape It Kit" has a bunch of dies that look like Washi tape strips.

Here's the card I made using the Tape It Kit:

See all the faux Washi tape shapes?  Too fun!  The background paper is a vintage dictionary page and all of the patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye, except for the blue and white diagonal-stripped paper which is from Basic Grey.

The flower is from Prima and the twine is also from My Mind's Eye.  Do you love the flair button?  Probably not if you're an animal rights activist or a vegetarian, but I thought it was cute.  It's from Kelly Purkey.

As usual, I smeared on some Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Peacock Feathers and Walnut Stain) to finish it off.

Great paper, clever dies, distress ink and a bacon sentiment?  Happy Friday, my friends.  It just doesn't get much better than this!  


  1. Love the card - earthy colours, fab patterning, and a hilarious piece of flair. I have to say, "more than bacon" - that's pretty extreme... are we sure it's true?!

  2. Thanks for your comments on my blog, Andrea. I just had to come over and ogle your blog. All I can say is holy texture! Love how you use it. I can see you're a TH fan like me. I also like your sense of humour. Can I tell you something else? I'm also a book books, novels, but don't appreciate Shakespeare too much. Puck, in Midsummer Night's Dream is a funny character, though. I don't usually have verbal diarrhea. Must be the bacon. LOL! Love your creations. Come visit again. I'll be back here.
