From this Day Forward Wedding Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back with a tag I created in honor of my son and daughter in law’s wedding anniversary that is today. I had these photos laying around and I thought why not create something with them and this is what I came up with.
I started by placing a Size #10 Tag (upper half) in the Floral Tapestry Embossing Folder and placed  between two cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine. I removed and place lower half of tag in the Floral Tapestry Embossing Folder and completed the same steps. I inked two Art Daubers with Leaf and Frog Blends 2 Inks and inked over the leaves and vines of the embossed areas on the tag. Next I inked three Art Daubers with TutuWildberry and Melon Blends 2 Ink and inked over the flowers of the embossed areas on the tag.


I placed the Geometrics Art Screen on top of tag, loaded two art daubers with Tutu and Melon and randomly ink areas of art screen and once I achieved the desired effect I removed the art screen. I inked the glass tray with Coconut Blends 2 Ink, added water to ink, loaded a Paint Brush with ink mixture and splattered the tag.


I cut two photos to fit the tag. I adhered the first photo slightly off the side of tag. The second photo I cut a piece of textured white cardstock slightly larger than the photo an inked an art dauber with Melon Blends 2 Ink and inked the edges of cardstock and then adhered the photo to the mat. I added Foam Pop Dots to back of photo and placed slightly off other side of tag.


I placed a scrap of white cardstock on top of the Journaling Cards, Flowers and a piece of Crinoline Fabric on top of the Leaves Diecuts and run through the diecut machine. I shaped two flowers diecuts with a Stylus and adhered together and added two sequins and a gem to center of the flower.

Next I inked an art dauber with Frog Blends 2 Ink and inked the fabric leaf. Once dry I adhered to back of flower and added to the bottom of the photo.

I looped several threads to create two messy bows and adhered one under the flower diecut and other under the smaller photo along with a few pearl sprays.

 I finished the tag by cutting two nine inch pieces of seam binding and tying into a bow at the top of tag. As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Gears and Sprockets Dad Tag

Hi everyone! With Father’s Day quickly approaching I want to share a manly tag I created using ColorBox and Eileen Hull’s newest Blends 2 Inks! 

I inked a glass tray with Nutmeg and Golden Blends 2 Inks and added a small amount of water to each ink. I placed the tag in both ink mixtures and once completely covered I removed and let dry. I placed the tag in the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and place between cutting plates and run through the Diecut MachineI inked two Art Daubers with Nutmeg and Flagstone Blends 2 Inks and lightly ink over embossed area and edges of tag.

I inked the glass tray with Stop Blends 2 Ink, added water to the ink, loaded a paint brush with ink mixture and splatter tag. Next I inked the glass tray with Nutmeg Blends 2 Ink, added water to ink and added half of the Handwritten Creative Card to ink mixture. Once completely covered I removed and let dry. I placed the inked card on top of the Rectangle diecut and place between cutting plates and run through diecut machine. I adhered the diecut off center of tag.

Next I placed a piece of watercolor paper on top of three gear diecuts from the Sprightly Sprockets Diecuts and placed between cutting plates and run through diecut machine. I inked the glass tray with Nutmeg Blends 2 Ink, added water to ink and place gear diecuts in ink mixture. Once completely covered I removed and let dry. Next clean the glass tray and ink with Copper and Rose Gold Blends 2 Inks  I loaded two Art Daubers with inks and randomly ink all three gear diecuts and circle diecut from the center of one of the gear diecuts. I applied Opalescent Embossing Powder to all diecuts and set with a Heat ToolI inked all diecuts randomly with Top Boss Clear Embossing Stamp Pad and applied more Opalescent Embossing Powder to diecuts and set with heat tool.

I adhered the gear diecuts to tag and added four gold gems to sprocket gear diecut.

Next ink the letters “dad” with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto the circle diecut. I cut three nine inch pieces of cording and tie off at the top of tag.

I punched a hole in the circle diecut and with wire snips I cut a small amount of 24GA Brown Bend Wire and thread through cording. I added circle diecut and twist to secure diecut. I curled the wire around pencil. I finished by adding three sequins and a gem to the corner of circle diecut. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Floral Wreath Hello Card

Hi everyone! I am back this month with a quick card I created for Momenta.

I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock to fit inside the Thanks Floral Wreath Cut and Embossing Folder with I ran through a Diecut Machine. I inked an Art Dauber with Mint Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and inked over the embossed wreath.

I cut a mat from the Peony Paper Pad to back the embossed wreath. From the same paper pad I fussy cut a flower and leaves from one of the papers. The Metallic Paper Pad I cut  the hello sentiment using the hello diecut from the Thanks Floral Wreath Cut and Embossing Folder and Diecuts before running through the diecut machine I backed the cardstock with an Adhesive Sheet. I adhered the flower to the corner of the wreath and I peeled the backing off the hello sentiment before adding to the center of the wreath.

I added clear glitter glue to the center of the flower and leaves. I also made several messing bows from thread.

I adhered the messy bows underneath the flower and added sequins to the front of the card.

I cut a piece of cardstock from the Peony Paper Pad  6″x11″ and folded in half. I adhered the ‘hello” wreath to the front of the card base. There you have it a card made in less than an hour. As always if you have questions about this project please let me know and be sure to check out Momenta for more project ideas.

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.

Thankful Gift Box

Hi everyone! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away?!?! Where has the time went to??? I thought I would share a little gift box I created for ClearSnap.

I carefully took a part and emboss each section of the box with the Wood Grain Embossing Folder. Next, I loaded three Art Daubers with the following inks: Candies Yam, Red Barn and Pumpkin Spice Inks and lightly rub in random spots to give a wood grain texture on the box. Once I got the desired wood grain effect that I wanted I put the box back together.

I inked a glass tray with Flagstone and Coconut Inks and add water to each color. I loaded a paint brush with Flagstone Ink mix and splatter each side of the box. Clean brush and load Coconut Ink mix and splatter each side. I fussy cut a doily from the DIY Shop Paper Collection and adhere to the top of the box.

I cut from the Crinoline fabric flowers using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and lightly ink the center of each flower with Canary Ink.

I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower. Next I laid each flower diecut on top of each other and pinched the center of all the flowers and shape.

I inked the feather stamp from the Thankful Stamp Set with Wicked Back Ink and stamp onto a piece of patterned cardstock. I did this twice and fussy cut each feather.
Next, I inked and stamped in Leather Ink the “Thankful” sentiment and two leaf sprigs. I also inked the edges of the sentiment with Butter Chalk Ink and fussy cut the leaf sprigs out and inked another leaf sprig with Clear Top Boss Embossing Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder, set with a heat tool and fussy cut image out.

I glued the feathers, leaf sprigs and several loops of cording and thread to the upper corner of the box. I added the “Thankful” sentiment to the lid and finish off with flowers and sequins. 

I would like to also submit this project for the following challenge:

Fall Tea Cup

Hi everyone and Happy November! I want to share an Autumn themed tea cup I created for ClearSnap! 

I started by printing out a Tea Cup Printable from Layers of Color which is found on Pinterest. I printed on burnt orange cardstock and fussy cut tea cup and saucer images out and adhered all pieces together, including a paper doily that I added to the sauce before adhering to the cup. I also glued a small wadded piece of tissue paper to the bottom of the tea cup.

I cut Millinery Leaves Diecuts from white cardstock and inked the glass tray with the following ColorBox Blends Inks: Melon, Frog, Golden, Sunshine and Nutmeg. I added water to each ink and applied the ink mixture randomly to each leaf diecut.

While the leaves were still a little damp I shaped with my hand and let dry.

I adhered lace around the top of the tea cup and added dry moss inside the cup.

Once the leaves where dry I shaped and inked the edges of each leaf with Top Boss Embossing Powder Stamp Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder to each of leaf diecut and set with a heat tool. I completed the same steps for each Golden Sparkle and Opalescent Embossing Powders as I did the Copper Embossing Powder.

I adhered the leaves inside tea cup along with mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. I finished by placing tulle and cording as a filler between mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. Now are you ready to create one for yourself? 😀 As always if you have any question please let me know.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Butterfly Angel Journal Part Two

Hi everyone! I am back with part two of my butterfly angel journal for Tsunami Rose Designs! If you didn’t catch part one of how I decorated this cover you can find that post HERE.


I used leftover printables from last month’s tag project for Tsunami Rose which included  Ephemera Set #12Junk Journal Kit-Rose Notecards, and Rose Clipart Floral Set #14.

I kept the bulky embellishments to a minimum by using glitter, sequins, flowers and mini gems since this little journal contains lots of pockets for tags and journaling cards.


There are three signatures in this little journal with three papers per signature which turned out being one chunky little monkey! 🐒
There is more photos of the inside of this journal over on Tsunami Rose Designs blog which you can find HERE.
