So turn to page 62... if you've got your book ... check out Dimensional Cutting Pad ... now if you read the rules you KNOW I can't give any instructions... it's so hard not to tell sometime... it's so exciting to learn something  new !!! I will tell you I thought it was going to be difficult... I'm happy to report it is so easy ... so cool !
I created a tag using Alterations Movers & Shapers Mini Butterflies Set, and Sized Ovals. One of the things I love about the challenges is that I'm  using my Tim stash. I used seedless preserves, ripe persimmon , cracked pistachio ( the new distress color for January) distress paints; and  tarnished brass distress stain to create my background. I embellished my tag using  Stampers Anonymous stamp, industrial stickers frame, ideology pen nibs and small corner, and ribbon from my stash . I also used an images from Pion paper; Paris Flea Market Collection ( you will have to look very close to see it  ... I'm very pleased with this little detail :)

Here is side view so that you can see the images ... pretty cool huh?

I love how the background came out; I even spritzed it with cracked pistachio to add more detail !
Hope you enjoyed it. And I do hope you join us. Don't forget to go show some love to the Curiosity Crew !

P.S. I knew there was another reason I posted the photo  again at the end ... wanted you to see how I positioned the ribbon (without giving details I did the technique twice ) ... hint : the oval and the butterfly !



  1. Gosh Rea' you are on a roll! This tag is beautiful too, I love the gorgeous butterfly with it's pen nib body and framing the butterfly gives it even more 'lift'. I love the warm colours too, wish I could say the same for the weather - wet, windy and cold here but thankfully no snow! Hugs, Anne xx

  2. Thank you Anne , love that you visit... so encouraging :)
    Yeah... it's cold and damp here today ... cloudy... guess will get more drizzle today, like yesterday !
