Stencil & tags and something different

 Hi Everyone, my card today was inspired by looking through challenges and I decided to try and make something quickly, this is the result. I've definitely been in a "make it if it HAS to be made" mode for a while now. I'm hoping this will start something off in me to just make cards for whenever.

I stencilled some card and die cut labels out, then got stuck and tried everything. I would be better off planning a card, but that's not me. In the end I added some dotty buttons, to match the dotty stencil and some die cuts that were leaf shape and one was dotty, then added some gold leaves for luck! Simple, even nearly CAS? 

I missed the challenge, OH! well, at least I have a card. I found another though!

I also have something different! You know me hahaha. Anyhow, I was looking for something little and different to add to presents for my Son's birthday, and thought a T-shirt. I bought a plain white one, as I had had a freebie through my email. The face originally was white, so I coloured it in a lion colour in Photoshop and added a quote I saw on the web. 

I didn't have Heat Transfer Vinyl to use the svg cut file, so I used Transfer sheets to print it onto, then ironed the sheet onto the T-shirt to make the print permanent. SO easy and quick to do with the correct paper. Print, iron for 20 seconds - done. I've included the links for these, as it was so easy for anyone to do with any image.The print lasts through a LOT of washes too, I've had one for a number of years, used around the house now, that still has the print showing well. I hope my son gets the same usage out of this T-shirt hahaha

Hi, Faith! Remember me? Your card is fantastic! I love the design and how you put it all together! It's beautiful! Great t-shirt too! :o)

WOW on the T-shirt transfer, Faith, and the card is fantastic! I adore how you matched the buttons with the stencil. So very creative. Sorry to have been MIA for so long but being able to read posts and type comments has been difficult so, like you, I've pretty much reserved that for "must do" things. Hoping to be more consistent from this point forward. :-D

I know several Leo's, they are proud of it! LOL So I'm sure your son will wear that lovely shirt nearly out. I'm still stuck on, how did she color it in Photoshop? Don't try to tell me, we finally got rain and I'm in pain again and brain kinda foggy, I won't comprehend it. I had a chuckle at your first paragraph. I have similar moods and not too sure planning is the answer because I plan too much, then lack the motivation to actually make the cards and end up with several box lids of projects to do that I then have to force myself to do. That's the dark side of that! Haha, Hope your weekend is going well, xoxo

You have had a very creative day Faith. Your tee shirt image is very well done, I am most impressed with this technique. I am sure that your son will adore his unique tee-shirt.

You may have struggled at first to come up with a card but what you ended up with is gorgeous, I love the dotty theme running throughout the design, it's simplicity makes it really stand out .... and that splash of colour on the buttons pops right off the card, the perfect finishing touch. It is such a shame you missed the competition you were making it for but I am sure other DTs will appreciate your work.

For someone who doesn't know where to begin, your creativity takes you quite far with these projects! I love that little card with the stenciled tags and cute button accents!
