Wonder Tag

Hi everyone! I am back with another project I created for ColorBox for their Creativation booth this past January. I know it took me forever to share these projects with everyone but I was trying to space my posts out so I didn’t overwhelm everyone with butterfly projects. ūüė¨

For this project I placed a 3 1/4″x5 1/2″ white tag in the Open Book Embossing Folder, placed between two cutting plates, placed onto the platform and run though a¬†Diecut Machine.¬†I inked an Art Dauber with¬†Jade Premium Dye Ink¬†and lightly rubbed over the embossed tag.

I placed a piece of White Cardstock on top of the Ornate Frame Diecut and placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I inked an art dauber with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink and lightly ink over the Ornate Frame Diecut. I added Gold Gems to the diecut and adhered the diecut to the center of tag.

Next I placed the outline of the butterfly stamp, from the¬†Butterfly Clear Stamps¬†onto the¬†MISTI Stamping Tool¬†and inked with¬†Leather Premium Dye Ink¬†and stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock. I placed the “filled in” image of the Butterfly stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool (be sure to line up the stamp with the stamped butterfly cardstock image) and inked the stamp with¬†Sandstone Premium Dye Ink¬†and stamp on top of the stamped butterfly image.

I loaded three art daubers with the following Premium Dye Inks: Bahama , Atmosphere and Dandelion. I inked the majority of the butterfly image with Atmosphere Premium Dye Ink. I inked over a small portion the wings, near the body, with Bahama Premium Dye Ink. Lastly I inked the inner and outer edges of the wings with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink. I fussy cut the butterfly image out with Scissors. I adhered a metal tab to the body of the butterfly and added a Pink Gem to the metal tab for the head. I also added two Pearl Pins and Foam Pop Dots to the back of the butterfly and placed in the center of the tag.

I placed the “For Small Wonders” stamp onto an the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of green cardstock . I cut out the “Wonder” sentiment with a¬†Paper Cutter¬†and cut another piece of yellow cardstock slightly larger than the sentiment and adhered both together. I added foam pop dots and placed sentiment under the butterfly.

I cut and adhered lace and Pom Pom trim to fit bottom of tag. I cut two 8″ pieces of lace and two gold Ric Rac and trim and strung through the top of tag, tied off with twine and adhered a button on top of twine. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
