TAC Dream Team Call

TAC has put out a Dream Team Call to it’s Angels and I’ve decided to try out, wish me luck!

My first card was made with Cup of Love, such an adorable set! I colored with copics and popped the cup up, cut out a bunch of flowers and layered them. The background is embossed with the Flowers Impressabilities Die and sponged with Sunflower Palette ink.

Copics: 0, Y000, Y11, Y15, YR24

For my second card I used Heather Scott’s weekly Sketch #135 and I decided on a masculine theme. The image and sentiment are both from Good Things, such a sweet set! I colored with copics and added a few highlights with a white gel pen. For the background I added some Background Soup in Versa Mark. All paper is Amberley Grace SWIC and CS.


Copics: 0, E51, C1, C3, W3, W7, BG000, BG10, BG11, BG13

My third card is my favorite I believe, it just seems so soft to me. I stamped the image from All Things of Nature in Versa Mark and then chalked it. I wanted a little more so I outlined the flower with a glitter pen and chalked over it again to tone it down. I cut it out with Label’s 4 Nestabilitie Die and sponged Aegean Blue ink on before removing the die. I added some texture to the Maggie SWIC paper with the Scor-Pal and Scor-Bug. The three pearls are from the Clear and Pearl Gem Collection.


For my project I decided to make a mini album. I used a tutorial from 2 Worlds blog for her recycled envelope album. She has some awesome tutorials to share! I’ve been saving all those return envelopes that come in our junk mail and this is s perfect way to put them to use. All papers and ribbons are from Maggie SWIC and CS… my favorite new paper from TAC! The sentiments are all from Joy, Found and the Tree is from Good Things, I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.

The album isn’t quite done yet… but then I doubt you want to see where I go with it! I am making it an album for my hubby and I, each section will be half his and half mine starting with… What did you think about him/her when you first met and moving through the things we love about each other, etc. So there will be pics of us and our own responses on the inserts… so long as I can convince him to play along!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and for making it through the whole post! I hope you have a wonderful day!

These are beautiful!!! I love the simplicity of the Cup of Love card, which is still so stunning, but my favorite is the truck card. It is so hard to make a great masculine card...but this is a great one

Good luck!
