Embellishments, Trinkets and Trims Frilly and Funkie Challenge

Time for another challenge over at The Frilly and Funkie Blog and this time hosted by Jenny.  Her challenge is Embellishments, Trinkets and Trims and she says "Linda sells a huge array of beautiful embellishments, trinkets and trims in her store (The Funkie Junkie Boutique), from metal filigree pieces and charms to buttons, laces and ribbons. They can be the important focal point on a project or the final finishing touches that complete it. However you wish to use them lets see those embellishments, trinkets and trims in action on your vintage or shabby chic entries."

My Take on the Challenge
I totally love Stamperia papers and The Funkie Junkie Boutique carries many of their collections.  One of my favorites is Alice, what a wonderful fun collection.  I also happened upon Tim Holtz's Big Talk Snarky quote collection.  Oh there are some great quotes in there, many of which I've said in my head, but fortunately not aloud!  Anyway, I thought this quote worked with the Alice papers.

As usual I've used a Graphic 45 large tag in kraft.  Then I layered up some of the design papers.  Alice is fussy cut and popped up over a cut-apart card that is also popped up with cardboard.  (I use cardboard when I am popping up larger pieces as it provides a sturdy base without have to use so much foam tape.  It gets expensive ya know?)

I used charms, a button and ribbons to embellish my tag.   The two teacups are fussy cut from the design paper and popped up with foam dots.

I stenciled on the word Adventure before adding Alice to the tag. The Big Talk Snarky quote is printed on bright white paper which just doesn't work.  A quick inking with Distress Antique Linen fixed that right up.

Take a look at that ever so cool white rabbit charm down in the lower corner.  Isn't that just the coolest charm? (click on the photo for a better look.)  I used a silver filigree metal piece and heat embossed it with Ancient Amber embossing powder.  I layered on a flower and topped it with this cool rabbit charm from the store.  

The metal teacup and teapot charms are from my stash and I've no idea where they came from or how long I've had them.  They work nicely with this tag though!

 I wanted a gold button over my gingham ribbon but didn't have one so I used Eileen Hull's thick embossing powder to make my own.  I just dabbed on some embossing ink, sprinkled on the powder and heated.  I think it turned out great!

  1. Love this Alice tag, Maggi! Once again, our minds were swimming in the same creative channel...right down to the ribbon! What are the chances of that? I love the dimension you added by stenciling the word "adventure" beneath Alice's feet. Great embellishments, too!

  2. This is such a great tag and you've used your embellishments, trinkets and trims to their best advantage--lots to look at but not overwhelming in the least. Such a great design and a perfect choice of snarky quotes! Sending hugs!

  3. WOW!!! Such wonderful tag! Love so much any detail and the charms look just amazing!!

  4. Great tag theme, Maggi. The trinkets are delightful. I'll be checking them out at F&F. tfs

  5. This is fabulous! I love how you layered her dress on some pretty papers and the design is wonderful!

  6. Oh I love how you've used those trinkets and trims to truly elevate this wonderful tag to a new level of beauty Maggi! The detail of that little layered flower and rabbit is wonderful and of course your choice of words works so well xx

  7. What a delightful Alice tag - those little charms are just adorable - the White Rabbit and the tea cup especially. Love how you've layered up the flower too, and the words are just right.
