Clothes Pin Magnets & Card

I made these for my friend. She loves purple and hearts. I painted the large clothes pins with a purple glitter paint on the sides. This paint did not work so well. Much better in theory than execution. So the little ones I inked with a purple stamp pad. I then glued paper to the top and bottom of the clips. I hot glued a brad attached to a flower on the front. Last I put magnet strips on the back. They came out ok for my first try but I have some ideas how to make them better next time.

I took a piece of card stock and embossed it then added a happy birthday tag to it. The happy birthday tag was made from a glue pad stamped image then glittered. I have never used a glue pad before and I really liked it. I will be using glue and glitter more often.

I made a tag for the top. I printed the happy birthday with her name then used my nestabilities to cut out the scallops. I embossed the papers with hearts and put it all together as you see in the picture, with a flower ribbon running across the front.

Last I put it all together with them in a bag.

I know she will like it. She is a great person and loves everything I make so I figured she would be my trial & error.
I made her a card all in purple as well. She likes monkeys so I cut them from the Paisely cart. I embossed the paper with my happy bday plate. I printed the happy birthday and wrapped a ribbon around it. I made this card with a slider insert, which I have never done. I glued the edges and them made the insert.

This is such a great idea and I love the purples. I will have to look into a glue pad, I'm forever wanting to use glitter for my stamps. Thanks for the inspiration.
