Simon says Stamp & Show some Tickets and Tags

Hello Friends and Welcome to my Blog!
I have been quite busy since my last post, I even finished something before last week and forgot to post it.  I will get to it tomorrow.
This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show Vintage we are to use some tickets and at Simon Says stamp we are to use a tag.  This was great timing because I was thinking of creating some tickets.  Digi images to have my Silhouette SD cut out of course.
I used Images from Gecko Galz and the Graphic Fairy to create the creations below.
I created the large ticket image in GIMP.  I used a lot of images from the Gecko Galz Gizmos & Gadgets and Frames collections.
I also used the Musical interlude and Winter Wonderland collections that are new this month.
I added images to other images for mini collage pieces to add to my tag.  I love the hinges..they are my fav!!  I used some UTEE on my clock face.  The tiny pink ticket with Angels and tree I created (all the tickets I created) in GIMP.  
I just love the ticket I created using the cute little angels with the Christmas tree.  Since I used some angels, I will be sharing this creation with the flutterbywednesday challenge blog.  I will be sharing this with the Make it Monday blog as well.  On the ticket below I used a Vintage Santa Graphic from Sandi (Maximum Embellishment). She has a lot of great vintage images that she shares on her check her out!  The Christmas Exhibition is from the Graphic Fairy.
 The tickets just slide under the gate hinges!!  Too fun!  I used my favorite Stamp that I drew and carved to add a little somethin somethin to the edges of this Ticket Tag.
I also Created this Super Vintage Chic Gift Card Holder!!
I will let my DH borrow it, to put my gift cards in :0).
This time I added some shape to my card by using my Silhouette Studio program and the weld feature.  It says..."artistic play,"
and at the bottom "unlock yours."  Who can't do some artistic playing when they get a gift card??
Every image on this page except the tiny leaves that I added to the pansies, are from Gecko Galz! I LOVE them!!
You can see the clock peeking through from the back page of my gift card holder card!  I used my hand carved stamps again in Jet black Stazon ink, and everything is inked with Ranger's vintage photo.
I used my Crop a Dile to punch tiny holes in the gate hinges and some rings from Ranger to hold my card together.
I just love the different door plates!  Here is the inside :0)
I also used some vintage buttons and Roses from The Flying Unicorn.  I just love the little rose buds!  I have some more to add, I just have to figure out what safe place I put them in :0).
Here is the inside below.
I created a present out of some of the darker music paper from Gecko gals words and music paper set.  I used a larger Vintage door plate image to hold my gift card!  There are two more little tags I created.
Since Simon Says Stamp and Show some tickets...I thought it would be cute to have the "time 4 tickets" around the edge of my card!  Who knows..maybe my DH could stick some tickets in there for an "Artistic Adventures Trip"...wouldn't that be Fabulous!!
Here is a close up :0)
Little blurry...that is what happens when you don't wear your glasses!
My little vintage package.
Again I used one of the stamps I drew and carved.
Look at this??  Who would of thought?? 
Hope you enjoyed my creation!  
I will be entering this into Helene's Money/Gift Card holder challenge at the Flying Unicorn as well.
