FLAPPER TAG

Gecko Galz products
   Cute Little Couquettes
   Vintage Tags
My stash
   Ribbons & twine (Really Reasonable Ribbon)
   Rosy trim
   mini tag & sentiment
   butterfly
   Martha Stewart border punch

I've been in a mixed media mood lately so the background of the tag I cut, has...gesso, paints, stamps, torn book page bits, stamping and modeling paste
The ladies tag was made using one of the Vintage tags (my printer running out of ink made it bluer than it should be) and I topped it with a Cute Little Couquettes lady. Both tag & lady were matted with cardstock. 
The butterfly I've had floating around my desk for maybe a year now...waiting for the right place to land! It was mounted on grunge board, fussy cut and crackle accents was added. 
I also used crackle accents on the mini sentiment tag that I cut! 
I made the bow with my Bow-it-all and simply stapled the other piece of ribbon on top.



SPRING FLOWERS CARD

Gecko Galz Products
   Flower Garden 1x2 Jewels
   Coquette Kit papers
My Stash
   Die cuts (using my Cameo)
   Ribbon
   Blue cardstock
   Silver stickers

I wanted a clean and simple card and I loved these papers so I simply layered them with a couple pieces of cardstock, then using a couple of pop dots I added the diecut with the matted Flower Garden Jewel on top. I added a bow (made with my bow-it-all) and a couple of silver stickers. 
On the inside I reversed the order of the papers so I could have a fuller view of both papers. Added another diecut, that I will add a simple sentiment to, with a bit of the blue cardstock behind it, then finished with a couple more of the silver stickers.


We asked Carol 
"WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU LOVE TO WORK WITH (besides Gecko Galz) AND IN A FEW WORDS HOW WOULD YOU SUM UP YOUR STYLE?" 

Wow, that's a challenging question...so much wonderfulness to work with out there! When I'm not using Gecko Galz products and even when I do, I love working with My Artistic Adventures digi collage sheets & papers by Heather Hudson!
As far as my style, it is most definitely Vintage with an occasional touch of Shabby Chic!
