Crafty Emblies First Challenge

Just loved the cut-outs there the minute and saw them and when they arrived I just loved them.

The first challenge at Crafty Emblies is Flora and Fauna and goes on until August 28th. You don't have to use their products to enter so do have a go.

The tag was plain green and I ran it through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder then sprayed it with Cosmic Glimmer Mist which spread out here and there to give an interesting effect-painted the string with the Glimmer Mist as well so it matches.

I used the jigsaw piece that I got from Craft Emblies in a mixed bag. The jigsaw piece is stamped and coloured to match the image, this is an idea I saw on a friend's blog and just loved. The stamp is from Chocolate Baroque and the cut outs are ones that friends have sent to me over the years.Thanks Becky and Max.

I embossed the bird in black as I wanted it to stand out to show that it had escaped from the cage.


  1. I REALLY love this tag. Great idea to stamp on your jigsaw puzzle piece. Need to have a go at that. Thanks for your lovely comment. Hugs, Buttons x
