Video: Using a DIY Glitter Tag & Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to our wonderful, amazingly talented Team Member, N@Ali!

Here are a few of her fabulous creations:

Happy Birthday!!!!

Hey everyone! It's Michelle here with another card video. Today I'll be showing you how I used a DIY glitter tag with some TAWS stamps to create this cute little card.

You can watch the video below, where you'll also find a link to the tutorial for the glitter tag!

I used an image from my Castaways stamp set (and also the SVG file) and the sentiment from Branching Out.

By the way, I'm also having a giveaway on my blog for a set of DIY stencils, including the one I used on the tag I show you in the video so check that out if you're interested!

Hi friends, Francine here! This Hard Boiled stamp set is SO FUN! I did a little scene and stacked the chick together. They are so cute! The sentiment is from the More than words set.   

Hi it's N@ Ali. I also used the Hard Boiled set for my card today.

Hi Dana here!! I'm starting off the month with a Flashback card (a card that features an older TAWS stamp set(s) ) I used Breakfast Club and Pick One to make a card with a spring flair! 

Hello Emily here!  My card for today was made with the new set Wigwam.  I caught the water-coloring bug lately, and couldn't resist to use it on this card.  

Hi all!  Angel here with a card using Buff - the FREE when you spend $40 set for this month!  Love this big guy!

Hello!  Lisa here with another card using the Wigwam set and that fun steer head image.  I gained lots of inspiration for this card by typing in steer head decor on pintrest, and just had fun playing around with various papers and the image embossed in gold...

Hey you! Marina here. I'm using this awesome set called Wigwam. The sentiment is from the new Yappy set. There's so many fun images in it but today I'm using the teepee to do some painting. I used Distress Ink antique linen to do my stamping because it's the lightest ink I have. I also used Distress Inks & Markers to paint.

hello!!!! - Tanja here! Time for a monday card :-)  I used Hard Boiled, Chick Magnet and Spell-check. Take care and keep your eyes open! Hugs!

Anni here with a mini card using the mini set Buff!
