Bottle Tag and More!

Hello friends
I'm often asked what I do with all the tags I is my most common use!
It was my parents' Wedding Anniversary this week so I thought I would give them a
nice bottle of sparkling wine topped with a tag. 
This tag was featured in a Friday Die Day a while back.
Yes it is those Jewel Flowers and Flourishes that I adore!
Cazanne mentioned she was unsure what flowers to buy...these or Asters....
to be honest I think everyone knows my favourite but I agree it is quite hard to choose!

We had a wonderful takeaway on Friday night, always a treat.  Bella is also thrilled if it is Chinese
as she gets the occasional Chinese style rib bone!

I've also been asked about the moulds I featured with the WOW Embossing Powders shop display.
You can just see them in bags in the bottom right hand corner of this picture -

But here is a much better photo!
They are £6.50. Each mould creates three flowers.  There is a choice of two flower designs -
Shabby Rose and Daisy.
The very lovely Marion Emberson....
(no relation but a coincidence that we share the same unusual surname!)
from Sugar and Spice Crafts has created a You Tube video showing how to use moulds
with WOW Embossing Powders.
Please note her moulds are a slightly different design but the procedure is just the same.  
 In fact later this year Marion is going to come along and teach some classes at my studio -
these will feature WOW and Spellbinders. 
I will keep you posted on the details and date.

And...last thing - Engraving Art Board - I now have this in stock in my Amazon shop - £4.95.
Available in gold, silver or copper.  Each pack contains 6 blank boards measuring 8" x 10".
Plenty to make lots of keys like these and more.
As always - please feel free to email with any enquiries etc.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
Take care.

Morning Christine,
I remember this particular tag because it had my favourite flowers on it. Hope your mum and dad enjoyed the wine.
I think I'll have to invest in the engraving board, something new to play with.
Have a good day.

Hi Christine,
Love the use of the pretty tag, I must say that since I have been crafting it is nice to make my own present tags instead of paying a ludicrous amount for them from card shops. I must get these flower dies though, they are lovely.
Enjoy your Sunday.

Hi Christine. What a lovely tag. Makes the bottle of wine extra special.

I'm off to England for the weekend in a couple of weeks and have had my son looking high and low for engraving board which he's now managed to get. I should have waited and I could have got it from you.Shucks.

Really heavy rain here yesterday and yet again today so don't feel guilty playing in my craft room all day.Poor Gracie's sulking as it's really too bad to venture out.

Have a lovely Sunday.

Love Val in Spain xxx

Love the engraving art board, I know it can be embossed but didn't realise it can be die cut.

Morning Christine, love the makes a present that bit more special. Glad to see you will be stocking the engraving board as well as the WOW powders. The WOW Glitter Powders are really pretty for those who haven't tried them. They really glitter. Presumably you can use any UTEE with the little WOW moulds? Love to know as these would make some pretty emabellishments. Congrats to your mum & dad on their anniversary. Have a lovely day. Sunny here and I'm off to do a little gardening. Gemma C.

Hi Christine, I think I am leaning towards the jewel flowers. They do seem to be a bit more versatile than the Asters, plus I do like that flourish that comes with it..Oh, and of course the butterflies!..I love the fact that they look different with each patterned paper you use.:) Have a nice Sunday. xxx

Cazann49 said...
