CC3C #27

Hello there again!  How is everyone??? 
I hope you are enjoying your day and having fun skipping around to each of the Curiosity Crew's blogs to check out the new challenge
This week's challenge is to use the Embossing Defuser on page 61 of Compendium of Curiosities Vol. III....which you can still get from Tim and Mario
To be completely honest I had bought these when they first came out and they had never been out of their package.  I think we all do that, wink.  Have to have it...and it goes in a pile or a drawer and it's forgotten.  That is one of the reasons I LOVE doing these challenges.  
It makes us use those stashed items, or things we might not ordinarily try. 
That is a beautiful thing!

So today I am sharing a tag that I will use as a tag on a package or actually frame and give as a gift. 
The colors of Distress Ink used on the back tag are:
Gathered Twigs
Seedless Preserves
Ripe Persimmon
They blend into this beautiful warm color.  LOVE those colors together. 
I stamped Tim's wood grain stamp on another tag with Gathered Twigs and then blended the same over the stamped image. 
The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Coordinations and then the "technique" from CC3. 

 The blue butterfly sends the message to be yourself...
Don't be afraid to be yourself.  
Stand out. 
This is so very important! 
That is one of the reason's I love this quote! 
Of course, I love to get that number "THREE" in there! 
Three tags adhered together, three butterflies and the three clip.  
 Here is a little closeup so you can see the technique up close and personal, wink. 
So make sure and read the rules listed here and join us! 
We love to see your art!!!
You guys have been so inspiring and it is so fun to hop around and see what y'all do too! 

Let's say a big thank you to our sponsors:
Inspiration Emporium who donated a generous gift certificate...and of course Tim and Mario who donated so many goodies for the participants!!! 

Okay...of to see what the rest of the Curiosity Crew did!

Have a great weekend...hugs till next time!

  1. You are so right about the Diffusers (and other things) staying in packets.... that is what inspires me to join in these challenges, it take me to techniques I might never try..... I love how you took the three tags and made them into a beautiful composition. I love your mix of colours (who would have thought!), they look amazing together - and the words are so inspiring. Hugs, Anne x

  2. Yvonne...your tag is so pretty! Your butterflies are always an inspiration on your work. Your use of the oval diffused embosser to make your sentiment the focal point of your tag is wonderful. Love the sentiment and your blog post!

  6. Brilliantly beautiful! I LOVE that your Quirky Girl stamps fits perfectly in that diffused oval! All of your layering and coloring is fabulous, as usual and your repeated "threes" are perfect. That woodgrain stamp is one of my all time favorites. Nicely done, darlin'!

    1. Joi...you are so sweet! Yep...I am definitely a hoarder with some things, hehehe...Sometimes you need a little push to pull things out of the hoard of stash, lol. This was it for me this time! Thank you for your sweet comments! I hope you play along again! Hugs.

  9. I had to have mine when it first came out too. I did take them out of the package and played around with them but hadn't created anything yet. I guess now is the time. Love your blue butterfly and the way you've hung embellishments from the clip. Someone is going to love getting this tag. So inspiring. Thanks!

  11. Just a lovely three layer creation, Yvonne :) I love your use of 3's, too and butterflies and glitter :) :) Both of the quotes you've used in your creation are so meaningful and so very true! I'm feeling badly that I haven't been able to come over and play at CC3 lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been inspired! Just a bit busy bts with life and such ;) I'll try to pull my embossing folders out of their hiding place and play along :) I know where they are...I think ;) :) XOXO-Shari
