Craft Show Stamping

I am getting ready for a craft show this weekend. Luckily for me, my craft show partner is the BOMB when it comes to mass stamping. I have a terrible time making the same project a dozen times. It's kinda like swaps... I love to get them, just hate making them. I think it has to do with repetitive stamping? I don't know, but regardless... I get bored quickly. Today I spent a little time working on a few projects that I will add to the mix of our craft show. I thought I would share one of my favorites for the day. I love making decorative tiles. You really cannot screw them up and they always turn out beautiful. Since they are more for decorative use, I thought I would add a little pizazz to a few of them using one of my favorite stamp sets, Fabulous Flowers. I just love this flower.

Here you can see a close up of both the tiles. I stamped the Fabulous Flower many (TOO many) times and then used my Iridescent Ice to emboss each of the layers of the flower. Once they were stacked together with dimensionals I added a half back pearl to the center and it just added such elegance to the entire tile. Yes, a few retired materials such as Chocolate Chip ribbon and the sentiment on the blue tile were used. Couldn't help it!

Have a GREAT day!
