Inky Impressions DT call

Morning everyone, here's my entry to the DT call over at Inky Impressions..if you havn't come across these cute stamps yet pop over and have a peek, they are adorable.

Whilst channel hopping last week i stumbled on a show on Create and Craft i hadn't watched before...i think it was Mel Heaton demoing Inkadinkado stamps and she made this fab wallet with a tag inside..when you pull the tag up and down the ribbon moves with it...i thought it was a cool idea but missed the measurements :( How bizzare it was when i was flicking through an old issue of Simply Cards a day later...she had made the same project in the mag ! So yesterday i set about making my own. I used one of the new Manga stamps from Funkykits...unfortunately i dont yet own any Inky Impressions stamps :(

All papers and elements are October Afternoon 'Cherry Hill' from The Craft Emporium...I cant wait for the new OA range to arrive in the UK...i'll be keeping a watchful eye on Lyn's store for them !

Here you can see how the ribbon stretches when you pull out the tag...again decorated with OA, the sentiment is from the lovely Pixie downloads from Charmedcardsandcrafts..the sentiment houses a little pocket which would be nice to pop a gift card in or cash. When you push the tag back down inside the wallet the ribbon moves easily back into place inside the wallet....cool huh?

And finally a close up of the cute Manga image.

Thank you all so much for your visits yesterday and the lovely comments you left for me....hoping to catch up with you all today xx
