Rose and Flourishes...STAMPlorations Love TAGplorations (Day 5), STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge and February CAS Card Challenge

Hello,

Welcome to STAMPlorations Love TAGplorations Day 5, where Shery's design team and a few guest designers (like me...) are continuing to showcase  love and/or Valentine-themed tags.  Have you checked out the previous days' designs? Be sure you do...so much beauty and creativity to be gazed at and admired....


Today, I opted for a tag-on-a-card, with a relatively quick little  number; the figuring out what to make took longer than the act of doing so!  Featured here:   Crazy Double Running Stitch Nesting Dies, Flourishes stencil, and the single rose, very, very simply distress ink water-coloured, from Blossom Overture


Sending you off to hop with a reminder of the details:

After hopping through the participating designers' blogs today, we'd like you to create your own love or Valentine's day themed project or two and link up for a chance to win the prizes we have up for grabs. You can create any project you want -- tag, card, ATC, art journal page, page layout, bookmark, home decor, canvas, whatever -- as long as it fits our theme (love/Valentine's Day) and has a tag in it (no matter how big or small).

Commenting and linking up is from today until Tuesday, February 14, 11:55 p.m. Pacific. We'll announce the winners on March 10 in the February Challenges & Hops winners post so be sure to follow our blog if you aren't already.

Anyway, take a look at the prizes:
  • THREE (3) randomly drawn winners from all comments left on this post and participating designers blog will each receive a $10 gift certificate to the store
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn participant to the Love TAGplorations linky party will receive her choice of stamp set (Pocket BloomsA Full Heart, or Two of Us)* 
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn participant to the Love TAGplorations linky party will receive her choice of any 2 of the new love-themed dies (LoveAlwaysXOXOForeverYou & MeClustered Hearts)*
  • ONE (1) randomly drawn participant in the Love TAGplorations linky party will receive her choice of tag dies set: Luggage Tags or ATC/Tag Builder
...and Shery may just throw in a couple of surprise prizes, especially if there are entries that catch her attention :o)

*If winner already owns the product/s offered as her prize, she may substitute a different product of equal or lesser value.

A lovely project, the soft pink is so pretty

Helen Budz said...

There's something almost fairy-tale-like about your card/tag design. The pinks, the rose image, even the pearl attaching the tag say "romance". Thanks for sharing this.

Such a pretty card, Carol. I like that stencil you used and your blending on it is beautiful. The single rose is almost reminiscent of the rose in the case on Beauty and the Beast. At least that is what I thought of. So delicate and pretty. Well done! Thanks for sharing. :)
