Lavender Love ...

Hi everyone,

It feels great to be back from my little break.  I hope you had a blessed Easter with family and friends.  If you have been following my blog, you know I like to press my garden flowers.  I enjoy using them on cards and for special occasions.  There are so many different ways to use your precious flowers and there is no limit on what your imagination can create with them.  Dried lavender stalks are also awesome for crafts.

Today I have some gift tags made from Old Lace cardstock.  Each tag was cut 2" x 4" and the tops were punched with the Stampin' Up scalloped tag topper punch.  To create a little French flair, I stamped each one using the En Francais background stamp with Brilliance Pearlescent Beige ink.  The edges were also sponged in Brilliance Pearlesecent Beige.  A piece of 1/8" May Arts lavender silk ribbon was added to the top of each tag.

Several pieces of Old Lace paper were die cut using the Our Daily Bread Designs custom Antique Labels die.  Lavender was stamped on the tags in Lavender Lace and popped up.

Now that all the stamping was done, I glued two dried lavender stalks to each tag and finished them off with a little bow.

A quick and easy way to share your dried flowers with others.  Oh, and they smell wonderful!

Thank you for stopping to visit.

Today I am joining ...
