Botanical Wreath Tag

Hi everyone! I am back with another tag I created. I had actually created this tag for ColorBox for use in an advertisement in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine last year. I kinda let this post sit in the draft folder of my blog and never got around to posting the directions on how I made this…so here it is! ūüėĀ

I started by applying Dandelion Premium Ink to a glass tray, adding water and placing the tag into the watered down ink and removed. I cleaned off the tray and applied the following inks: Rose, Jade and Spring Premium Dye Inks to the glass tray and added water. I randomly place the Tag in the different colors of ink until desired effect was achieved. 

Once the tag dried I embossed with the English Botanical Embossing Folder.
I cut from a brown/wood looking cardstock a Wreath Diecut and inked the leaves with Ice Jade Chalk Ink. The wreath was bigger than the tag so I adhered to the front and wrap and glue the rest to the back of the tag.
Before glueing the rest of the wreath to the backside I measured and cut a piece of Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock the size of tag and adhere to the back of the tag. 

I cut from White Cardstock flowers and leaves from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and from the Flower and Leaf Stitchlits Diecuts (retired). I added Rose Premium Dye Ink to glass tray, water and painted two larger flowers and once dry shaped with a Stylus and add two sequins and a flat back pearl to the center of each flower. I inked leaves completely with Ice Jade Chalk Ink, shaped with a stylus and adhered to the backs of each flower. I shaped with a stylus three of the mini white cardstock flowers and add a gem to each center.

I tied two bows with cording and adhere to the back side of the large flowers before gluing to the tag. I finished off by adding sequins randomly to the front of the tag and cutting 8 inch piece of lace and tie to the top. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Lucky Shamrock Tag

Hi everyone and Happy March the 1st! I wanted to start off the month by sharing a shamrock tag I created!

I started by cutting Good Luck on Ivory Cardstock 6.25″x3.125″ and punching a hole at the top center of the tag.

I inked a glass tray with ColorBox Blends Leaf Ink, added water to the ink, loaded paint brush and splatter tag with mixture. I repeated Step 2 but with ColorBox Blends: Frog Ink and I let the tag dry.

I inked the Shamrock Rubber Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of textured green cardstock. I fussy cut the shamrock image out and adhered an acrylic heart gem to the center of the shamrock image.

I inked the “lucky” sentiment from the Dress Up Stamp and Cut Set and stamp onto white cardstock, cut out and ink edges with Ice Jade Chalk Ink and cut a banner from the ¬†piece of green cardstock, emboss with the Waffle Embossing Folder (retired). Next I inked the edges and over the embossed area with Ice Jade Chalk Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the banner and the banner to the tag. I glued the shamrock image underneath the sentiment with a small portion hanging off the tag.

I finished off the tag by cutting three 6″ pieces of lace and threaded through the hole at the top of the tag, tied off with thread and adhere a button to the lace. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Snowflake Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! I’m back today a quick gift card holder project for Christmas! If you are into all things glitter but don’t like the mess. I am going to show you how to use embossing powder over a piece of¬†cardstock¬†to give it that sparkly effect.


I started by punching a snowflake from mint green cardstock. I covered the snowflake completely with Clear Top Boss Embossing Stamp Pad and applied Opalescent  Embossing Powder to the snowflake and set with the Heat Tool.



I inked a snowflake stamp from the Home for Christmas Clear Stamps with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of White Cardstock. I punched the snowflake out with a Circle Punch and applied adhesive to the center of the stamped snowflake and sprinkled Winter Frost Glitter onto the image and gently shook off the excess. 


I cut from patterned¬†cardstock the following cardstock strips:¬†1 7/8″x2 1/2″, 1/2″x2 1/2″ and 1/8″x2 1/2″ ¬†and adhered all¬†cardstock¬†strips to the front of the Mini Bag.

I adhered the snowflake circle to the center of the larger snowflake, added sequins, a flat back pearl to the center of the snowflake and glued the larger snowflake to the bag. I folded the flap over and add a mini clothes pin to the top of the bag. This will keep the gift card safely in place until  it is ready to be given as a gift. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

    Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

    I’ll be Home for Christmas Tag

    Hi everyone! I’m back today with a quick tag I created for Christmas!


    I started by inking a glass tray with Ebony and Coconut Blends and adding water to each ink. I placed the Tag into each ink mixture until the tag was completely covered with ink and once dry I inked a  Damask Cling Stamp with Pewter Ink and stamp onto the tag.



    I inked a glass tray with Coconut Blends and add water and loaded a paint brush with the ink mixture, splattered the tag and let dry.


    I cut the “I’ll be Home for Christmas” sentiment and fussy cut the truck with tree from the Farmhouse Christmas Stripe on Ivory Cardstock.¬†A side note…push lid in onto the ink pads there will be ink transferred to the inside of the lid. You can paint from what is transferred onto the inside of the lid instead of loading a glass tray with ink. I painted the bed of the truck with Cattail Ink, the cab of the truck with Fruit Punch Ink, the wheel with Graphite Ink and the pine tree with a combination of Shamrock and Citronella Inks.




    I inked the edges of the sentiment with Fruit Punch Ink and adhere to tag. I also cut one piece of patterned cardstock to cover the back of the tag, adhered and punch a hole in the top of the tag. Next I placed a piece of glitter cardstock on top of a Tear Drop Circle Diecut and sandwich between cutting pads and run through a diecut machine and adhered to the tag along with the truck. I added clear glitter glue to the pine tree tips in the truck. 


    I tied off a 8″ piece of seam binding and 8″ piece of lace to the top of the tag and finished by adding a button on top of the lace and seam binding. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.


     Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:

    ClearSnap: Christmas Cookie Canister

    Hi everyone! How can it be December already!?!?! And the 4th?!?! I’m still trying to wrap my mind around that fact that it’s almost the end of the year but I want to share a quick DIY canister project I created for ClearSnap¬†that might inspire you to create a thoughtful gift to give to a family member or special friend.

    I started with an empty hot cocoa tin that my sister had given me…nothing like up-cycling something that you would toss in the garbage can. ūüėÄ

    I cut a piece of Red and Ivory Ticking Cardstock to fit around the lid and container and adhered.

    I placed a scallop circle rubber stamp, from the Cookies Clear Stamp Set, onto an Acrylic Block and ink with Wicked Black Ink which I stamped onto a piece of patterned cardstock.


    I fussy cut the stamped image out and adhered on top of container lid.¬†I glued the chipboard button to the center of the lid an on top of the button I glued the felt ball.¬†I added mini pom pom trim underneath the “lip” of the container.¬†I cut one recipe card from the¬†Black and White Recipe Cards Cardstock¬†and stamped the mixing bowl and wooden spoon onto patterned cardstock. I fussy cut both images out and adhere to the bottom corner of the recipe card.

    I also added the “To” and “From” to the tag stamp before inking with Wicked Black ink and stamp onto a white piece of cardstock. I fussy cut the tag out and punch a hole in the top of the tag.¬†Next I inked the holly¬†stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of green cardstock. I fussy cut, shape and add mini red gems to the berries and adhered the holly to the top of the tag. I finished off by¬†tying the tag with baker’s twine to the top of the container. Now all I need is either candy or some sweet treat to add to the inside ¬†before giving as a¬†gift. If you have any question about this project please let me know.

Next I¬†inked an art dauber with Creamy Brown Chalk Ink and ink all edges of the tag and¬†adhered a doily off center and glued the excess to the back side of the tag.

    I inked the dove stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto piece of cream cardstock and fussy cut the dove image out. Next I inked a glass tray with Ice Jade and Aquamarine Chalk Inks and added a small amount of water to each ink. I painted the leaves and stem with Ice Jade and highlighted the leaves with Aquamarine.

    ClearSnap: Need a Good Cry Kleenex Belly Band

    Hi everyone! I want to share a project I created using some of the new stamp sets that ClearSnap has come out with this month! 

    I started with the ColorBox: Buttercup Clear Stamp set, some patterned cardstock and a¬†8.4″x8.4″Kleenex Tissue Pack for¬†this project.

    First I cut one 2″x10″ patterned cardstock and 2 1/2″x10″ orange cardstock and¬†wrapped the 2 1/2″x10″ around pack of Kleenex and adhere at the end of the cardstock to create a belly band. I¬†completed the same step for the 2″x10″ patterned cardstock.

    I cut one Beaded Circle Diecut from the Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock and adhere to the center of the belly band.

    I stamped the “You Need a Good Cry” sentiment with Wicked Black Ink onto a piece of cream cardstock and cut the end of cardstock to create a banner. I inked the edges of the banner with Marigold Ink and adhere to the belly band.

    I adhered sequins and gems around the Beaded Circle Diecut and punched two seals¬†from patterned cardstock and adhere to the corner of the “You Need a Good Cry” sentiment.

    Next I punched a heart from patterned cardstock and glued on top of the seals.I punched a mini flower, leaf sprig from patterned cardstock and cut one leaf off of the sprig and adhere to the back of the flower before gluing to the heart. I finished off by adding a gem to the center of the flower. There you have it! If you have a friend that is down and having a rough time this is a perfect pick me up that hopefully after they have a good cry will bring a smile to their face. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

    ClearSnap: BBQ Recipe Booklet

    Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick and easy mini recipe booklet I created using the Needle Book Diecut, ColorBox: Paint Box Chalk Ink Arctic Deep and ColorBox: Art Screens Stars.
    I started by applying one 6″x6″ Adhesive Sheet to a piece of chip board. I cut a piece of Navy and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock to cover the chip board. I peeled the backing of adhesive sheet off and apply¬†Navy and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock. I¬†placed the “naked” side of the chipboard face down onto the¬†Needle Book Diecut and run through the diecut machine.

    I placed the Art Screens Stars stencil on top of the diecut and loaded an Art Dauber with Paint Box Chalk Ink Arctic Deep and rub over the stencil until I had achieved the desired effect. I cut five Journal Lines on Ivory Cardstock slightly smaller than the book and fold in half and punched two small holes into the spine of the book. I placed the folded pages inside the book and where the holes are in the spine marked off one of the pages and then punch holes into all pages. I threaded the needle and sewed the pages into the book and tie off.
    I inked the BBQ Grill Rubber Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, fussy cut the grill image out, adhered to the cover of the recipe book and add three glossy dots to the legs of the grill.

    I cut the word “recipes” from the¬†Farmhouse Market on Ivory Cardstock and glue to the cover. I also cut a piece of elastic cording and tie to the belly band. Once desired tightness of the band is achieved place around the recipe book.

    Now all I have to do is add all my old recipes that I have laying around into my little recipe booklet. No more searching because everything will be in one place! ūüėÄ As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

    Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:
