JEN - 'Breath, Smile, Tears' Canvas Card

This card is a little different than the cardstock based cards that I normally make.  This one actually has a canvas front that has been cut into a cute shape.  I first drew the pattern for the card shape on a piece of paper.  Once I got the shape how I wanted it, I traced the shape onto a piece of canvas.  I also traced the shape onto a folded piece of cardstock (fold is at the top).  I then used my scissors to cut out both pieces.  The canvas is rather thick, so it may be easier to use an exacto knife for intricate cuts.  
I used the same pattern to cut out my patterned paper pieces.  I cut down the pattern on the sides and bottom only and then traced this onto the light purple.  I cut down the pattern again and then traced it onto the gold flourish paper.  I attached the Ribbon and then the patterned papers are stacked on top of one another and attached to the canvas front.

To create the detail on the Chipboard Heart, I used Chalk Ink (Mocha Mama) to stamp a flourish image randomly all over the chipboard.  When you use a chalk ink to stamp, it creates a really pretty water color effect.  The chipboard piece was white, which didn’t really match my color palette for the card, so I used the same chalk ink to rub across the entire surface.  I then added the flower brad and torn vellum pieces before attaching the heart to the front.  Here is a closer view of the heart:
I then punched a scallop circle from the purple patterned paper and punched a smaller circle from the gold paper.  I wrapped a torn vellum quote around the circle and then pop dotted the circle onto the scallop before attaching to the card front.
To finish the card front, I used a glitter pen to trace over the flourishes on the paper and randomly added some ½ pearls that followed a few of the flourish lines.  Once complete, the entire canvas front is attached to the cardstock base that was cut at the beginning.

MELIN - Tag Set
Good morning Crafty Friends,
Today I am sharing a couple of tags I made from the Quick Quotes Tag. It was an add on kit from their August Club Q kits HERE.
This is a photo of the option kit. I will be using the tag portion for my project today. 

Here are the two tags I created.
This is what you got in the kit.

This is a shot to show the depth of the tag.

I inked the front with Mocha Mama Powder Puff Chalk Ink. I also inked the image with Mocha Mama to give it a very distressed look.

I adhered the photo to the back and inked the back with Midnight Confessions Chalk Ink.

Here is a close up of the front. I added a super cute glittered Chipboard oval embellishment from the Die Cut Sheet from Quick Quotes...HERE

Here is a close up of the second tag. I used some Savvy Davvy Designer Paper and some more of the glittered chipboard embellishments all from QQ! I Inked the Savvy Davvy paper with Midnight Confessions as well as Mocha Mama Chalk Inks.

Recipe for the two tags.
