Hi everyone! I back after being in Nashville for a few days awaiting the arrival of my grandson. He was born on the 3rd and lets say I am completely in love with this little guy! I can’t wait to make another trip soon for more snuggles. 💖
Even though here in the South it always seems we will never see cooler weather…we still have temperatures in the upper 80’s and lower 90’s…I decided to create an autumn shaker tag.
I started by placing the Leave and Journaling Diecut on the cutting pad and one Foam Adhesive Sheet on top of the diecut and place other cutting pad on top and run through diecut machine. I completed the same steps with patterned cardstock instead of foam adhesive.I removed the leaves diecuts from the center of the journaling diecuts, foam adhesive and patterned cardstock. I removed the leaves center diecut from the center of the journaling card diecut and cut one diecut from patterned cardstock.
I peeled the backing from foam adhesive and place the solid journaling card diecut on top of the foam. I placed an assortment of micro beads and sequins into each leave and cut a piece of acetate/clear packaging to cover the front of the shaker tag. I peeled the backing carefully from the foam so the beads and sequins won’t fall out and placed the acetate/packaging onto the foam.
Next I adhered the patterned cardstock leaves diecut on top of the acetate/packaging and added jute cording around the outer edge of the shaker tag.
I cut leaves from watercolor paper with the Leaves Diecut. I inked a glass tray with Coral, Dandelion and Leather Premium Dye Inks and add water to each color. I placed two of the leaves into the ink mixture until desired effect is achieved. While the leaves were still wet I shaped and let dry.
Once the leaves were dry I applied the Top Boss Clear Embossing Stamp Pad to the edges of the leaves and applied Copper Embossing Powder to stamped edges and set with the heat embossing tool.
I completed the same steps for both Gold Sparkle and Opalescent embossing powders as I as done with the copper embossing powder.
I adhered both leave diecuts to the top of the shaker tag and added cording to the button and adhere the middle of the leave diecuts. As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.
