ClearSnap and Xyron: Celebrate Tag

Hi everyone! Today I am back to share a project I created for a ClearSnap and Xyron collaboration. Whenever I ink up projects and have leftover ink I grab a blank tag and lay/paint it…I hate to waste ink ūüėĀ and when I need a quick project I have a stash of inked tags ready to go.

How I inked this Tag I used a glass tray which had Coral and Dandelion Inks. Water had been added to each ink and I laid the tag into the ink mixture and made sure tag was completely covered with ink. Then I removed and let dry.


The tag I placed inside of the Printer’s Ornaments Embossing Folder and ran through the diecut machine.¬†I cut the balloon journal card form the¬†Color Washed Paper Pad. I placed the journal card face up in the¬†Xyron Creative Station Lite¬†and ran through the machine. Peel backing off and add journal card to the tag.

Ink the girl and legs rubber stamps from the Dress Up Stamp and Cut Set with Wicked Black ink. Fussy cut girl body and legs.
Ink an Acrylic Block with Pink Sky Chalk Ink. Load paint brush with water and pink sky ink and paint the girl image’s cheeks. Also paint a scrap piece of watercolor paper and let dry.¬†I cleaned the acrylic block and inked with Candied Yam Chalk Ink¬†and¬†I loaded a paint brush with water and Candied Yam ink and paint the girl image’s hair.

I cut a 1″x4″ piece of cardstock and used the¬†Xyron Tape Runner¬†to adhere to the tag.
Next I placed a piece of cardstock onto the skirt diecut and run through the diecut machine. With the tape runner I adhered the girl image, legs, and skirt to the tag. I cut three banners from various patterned cardstock and adhered with the tape runner to the upper corner of the tag.

I punched a flower from the painted water color paper and a leaf sprig from a scrap of green cardstock. I cut two of the leaves from the sprig and adhered a flower and leaves to the waist of the girl. I added a Glossy Dot to the center of the flower and several loops of thread underneath the flower.

I added the “Celebrate” sticker to the banner and the Party Hat to the girl’s head. I¬†finished the tag by¬†tying green seam binding to the top of the tag.

As always if you have a question about this project please let me know. I would also like to submit this project for the following challenge:
