Tag Tuesday: A Little French Wedding Dress

I want to thank everyone for your ever kind encouragement and sweet comments. Tag Tuesday is a highlight of each week for me. I have so enjoyed planning my tags and also seeing the variety of ideas and styles of all the participants!

For this wedding tag, I cut a dress form out of chipboard and decorative paper using a Tim Holtz die.  After stamping French lettering with a stamp from Oxford Impressions,  I folded cupcake holders to make the skirt, added a little glimmer, and then trimmed out with antique lace scraps, rhinestones, and millinery flowers. 


I staged it with my latest obsession - the paper cup holders and pastry bags from Starbucks! If you want to see how truly smitten (or crazy) I am about these pink papers, there's another project on my blog under "A Little Pink Starbucks Obsession."

I hope you are making it a great week!                                                                                                                                                - Laura

This is just amazing (and your lovely pink Starbucks background is so perfect behind all the lacy lusciousness!).

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog about my ATCs. I just recently started making them. My nudge was to join swaps on the Splitcoast Stampers forums. They're a lot of fun to make, great for trying out new mediums or techniques and only a 2.5" x 3.5" 'canvas'. Give it a whirl!
