Shabby Chic Tags and Vintage Inspired Fabric Lace Flowers

Good Morning Friends!! I made another set of tags and fabric flowers! I haven't gotten into a good rhythm as far as creating things. Because I crochet my own flowers, create my own fabric flowers, tags, and everything else, I have to divide my time in each area and well, I do a little of this and do a little of that trying to fit everything in a day.

I created this set of tags yesterday. This time around I decided to stamp the image rather than using a collaged image. I used my Unity Stamp. . .I love this floral image. I stamped the image then heat embossed the image with pink embossing powder.

I had crochet the flowers, dyed them, then added vintage style buttons. The crochet flowers are dyed with Stampin Up Pink Pirouette ink. My plan is to create more crochet flowers and dye them in different Stampin Up colors. I also listed white crochet flowers if you want to dye them yourself. They're listed in my Etsy store: Inspired & Unscripted. I also dyed the seam binding bows with the same color.


Here is a close up of the crochet flower! I love the button! So vintage!

I also added a glittered heart chipboard that I cut with my Sizzix die, painted with acrylic paint and sprinkled glitter all over. As you can see the image is embossed. The tags design is understated. . .I wanted to create a simple look. I love the shabby chic look.

I created a bunch of fabric lace flowers yesterday. This time around I used a satin fabric with lace and added a faux pearl to the center.

These flowers may used for bows, brooch, card making, scrapbooking, altered projects, or sewing projects. I was going to create brooches with them but decided that I would sell them as a supply rather than finished projects.

I've listed them in my Etsy shop. I made more fabric flowers but I still need to take photos and list them. I'll work on doing that today!

Well, I need to get back to creating! I've been having a ton of fun creating different projects. I'll probably work on something jewelry or sewing this week. I haven't created any jewelry or sewn items for a while now. It'll be a nice change to work on them! Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!

Stop by my Etsy shop: Inspired & Unscripted Check out the new items I've listed!
