A Cup of Tea Warms the Soul Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on the blog today and share a quick tag I created using Pam Bray’s Chat Time Rubber Stamps by Emerald Creek. I received this stamp set while I was at Creativation and I was super pumped because Pam is a dear friend of mine and because I finally had my hands on one of her sets of stamps.
I started by placing the larger of the two mugs onto the MISTI Stamp Tool and stamping on a piece of patterned cardstock from the Prima Dulce Collection. I fussy cut the stamped image out and with a Craft Knife cut around the outer edge of the stamped mug to create a slit.
I already had a tag that I had added excess inks from pervious projects to so all I did was emboss it with the Brush Dot Embossing Folder and start adding bits of patterned cardstock I had laying around. Before I adhered the mug to the tag I placed one of the Paper Dolls in the slit.
I decorated the mug with flatback pearls and sequins. I also added flowers and leaves that I had cut from the Floral Garden Diecuts, I shaped the flowers and leaves and adhered loops of thread to the back before gluing to the mug. I also placed the “A Cup of Tea Warms the Soul like a Good Friend” sentiment (I cut it from a scrap piece of G45 cardstock) underneath/next to the mug. 

Next I added a bit of pom pom trim to the bottom of the tag and instead of cut off the excess I left it hanging and I tied a lace bow at the top of the tag. There you have it! I’m so happy with how it turned out and if you would like to see more of Pam’s creativity you can stop by her blog HERE. If you would like to purchase Pam’s stamps, digital images and embossing powders you can find the shop HERE

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Designer Crafts Connection: Petal Paper Flowers Tag

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the Designer Crafts Connection group blog hop this month that is sponsored by DCWV. 
DCWV has been a long-time producer of the stack-a set of coordinated papers. Stacks have been made in so many themes and colors over the years. Happy members of the American Crafts family of products, they continue their pursuit of serving the consumer and their crafty needs with new paper stacks releasing several times a year in updated themes and colors. You can find them online and in a variety of craft stores.

Each designer received a package of Petal Paper by DCWV which can be found at Joann’s in store or online. I knew that DCWV produced the stacks but had no idea that they had a line of different colored crepe papers? Who knew? I received a package of yellow and orange petal papers and knew I had to grab some diecuts and make flowers out of this.  
I folded the paper several times and placed the flower diecuts on top of the Petal Paper and run through the diecut machine.
I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower diecuts, placed on top of each other and pinched in the center and shaped.
Next I inked up my glass tray and added a little water to each ink. I randomly painted a tag and once dry placed in the Fractal Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I lightly inked over the edges and raised areas of the tag with a blue chalk ink. 
I raided my stash and added a frame diecut and banners I created from cardstock to the tag. I adhered the flowers, leaves and leaf sprigs to the upper and lower corners of the frame diecut.
I also glued thread and cording bows, buttons, a heart shaped gem and a bit of lace to the flowers.
I placed two cute little girls paper dolls to the tag. I also applied an adhesive sheet to the piece of cardstock before cutting out a hello diecut and placing over the little girls. I finished off by adding sequins, pearls and a ribbon bow to the top of the tag.
You can find more ideas HERE.

Simple Thanks Card

Hi everyone! I’m back with my second project of the month for Momenta! I wanted to create a quick and simple card that took less than 30 minutes to make so lets get started.
I started by placing the Nested Square Border Diecuts on top of a piece of Watercolor Paper and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. Next I placed the square diecut into the corner of the embossing folder from the Thanks Floral Embossing and Diecuts and run through the diecut machine. I lightly inked over the embossed area and edges of the diecut.

I placed a scrap of green watercolor cardstock from the Watercolor 8″x8″ Paper Pad and cut two vines diecuts out from the Christmas Tree Embossing Folder and Diecuts. I  also cut one flower from Thanks Floral Embossing and Diecuts using the same paper pad. I cut a portion off of each vine and shaped, along with the flower diecut, with a Stylus. I adhered the vines to the back of the flower along with a sequins and glossy dot to the center of the flower.

I added a bit of glue to the back of the flower and placed in the lower corner of the square diecut. Next I placed an Adhesive Sheet on the back of a scrap piece of cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad, placed the thanks diecut from the Thanks Floral Embossing and Diecuts on top of the cardstock and run through the diecut machine. I peeled the backing off of the thanks sentiment and placed on the square diecut.
I cut a piece of blue cardstock from the Watercolor 8″x8″ Paper Pad and folded it 4″x5 1/2″ to create the card base. I added a small strip of metallic cardstock to the card before adding foam pop dots to the back of the square diecut and placing on the front of the card. Very easy card! I would like to also add before wrapping up my post that this is my last Momenta post…for the time being…I hope to come back at a later date once I am finished with a few home projects. 😊

Let it Snow Tag

Hi everyone! I am back after a little break from the holidays with my first project of the new year for Momenta! This tag takes no time to create. Maybe 30 to 45 minutes at the most but lets get started!
I started by placing a tag into the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
Next I inked three Art Daubers with the inks from the Blue to Teal Ombre Pigment Ink Pad and inked over the embossed image and edges of the tag.
I cut one Intricate Snowflakes Diecut from mint cardstock and cut three of the snowflakes from the diecut.
Next I cut one snowflake and two of the tiny star bursts in a light blue cardstock from the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and Diecuts and lightly inked the edges of all the diecuts. 
I placed Foam Pop Dots behind the snowflake and star burst dies before placing onto the tag. 
I adhered the three intricate snowflakes dies randomly on the tag along with sequins and gems.
I finished the tag by tying ribbon into a bow at the top of the tag and called it finished!

Mini Snowflake Journal

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with my second project of the month for Momenta and I thought since Christmas is oh so close I would create a micro journal with a leftover needle book diecut that I had cut out in leather. Also have you been by Hobby Lobby and seen all of Momenta’s newest Christmas/Holiday diecuts and embossing folders?!?!? If not you need to make a special trip just to get some of these fabulous diecuts and embossing folders!


As I stated I had a leftover needle book diecut that I had cut from leather and I decided I wanted to try and use part of the Let it Snow embossing folder and the snowflake diecut to emboss the leather. I spritzed the areas that I was going to emboss/add diecut with water and placed the bottom edge of the journal and the belly band into the embossing folder (emboss snowflakes only) and run through the Diecut Machine. I completed the same steps for the snowflake diecut too. For people that don’t have access to leather or would like to created this journal out of cardstock the size is 5″x3 5/8″.
In the spine I added a total of four eyelets with the Crop-A-Dil. I ran the Hot Pink Elastic through the eyelet holes and the belly band and tied off.
Then I cut a piece of patterned cardstock from the Peony Paper Pad to 3 1/8″x4″ and several piece of notebook paper slightly smaller than the cover. I punched two holes in the spine and sewed the notebook paper inside of the cover.
I punched out a Scalloped Circle from the same paper pad and adhered to the front of the notebook and cut a snowflake diecut out and added to the scalloped circle along with a sequin and gem.

I also cut four star diecuts out and adhered them back to back at the ends of the twine that I had tied off inside of the notebook and added a gem to the center of each one.
 I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed creating it! If you have any questions please let me know.

Cheers! Box

Hi everyone! I’m back today with my project for Momenta! Since I have several upcoming birthdays I decided I would created a gift box.


I started by taking a part a small box that I had on hand. I folded in one section and place in the embossing folder from the Happy Birthday Stamp and Emboss Set and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. I completed the same steps for the other side of the box. 



I glued the box back together and inked over the embossed areas with an assortment of chalk inks.


I cut and adhered a piece of patterned cardstock from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad to fit the lid of the box.


I stamped the sentiment “Cheers!” from the Happy Birthday Stamp and Emboss Set and placed one of the Nested Oval Borders Metal Diecuts over the sentiment and cut out with the diecut machine.


I cut another oval diecut out from another piece of patterned cardstock from the same paper pad and glued to the back of the sentiment. I also stamped a party hat onto a piece of White Cardstock and fussy cut out. 


I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the diecut and placed on top of the lid. 


I added to the party hat and a flower and leaf punch (from my stash) sequins and a gems before gluing to the sentiment. If you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also if you aren’t following Momenta you can find them on FacebookInstagram, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.

Blooming Birthday Folded Card

Hi everyone! I am back again with another fun project that I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Gift Card Folder and Label 2 Diecut but I turned it into a fun little card.

I started this project by placing a piece of White Chipboard on top of the Gift Card Folder and Label #2 Diecut, running it through the Diecut Machine and I folded all four sides of the diecut down. I inked a glass tray with Melon and Wildberry Blends Inks, added water to each ink and placed the diecut in the ink mixture. I covered completely on both sides of diecut. Once I had it covered I removed and let dry.
I placed each flap of diecut into the Damask 2 Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I cut a strip of patterned cardstock 1/2″x8″, wrapped around the folded card and adhered the ends together to create a belly band. Next I placed the heart stamp from the Bible Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper  I inked two Art Daubers with Salmon and Princess Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and inked the center of the heart with Salmon and the outer edges of the heart with Princess. I fussy cut only the stamped heart out.

I inked the glass tray with Caribbean Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, added water to the ink and painted a scrap of watercolor paper. Once dry I inked the Simple Dots Rollagraph with Tahiti Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and rolled onto the painted scrap of watercolor paper. I punched a circle from paper and adhered to the belly band. I cut a “v” in a small scrap of decorated watercolor paper and adhered to the circle punch on the belly band along with stamped heart, flower and a leaf from my stash. I also added a gem to center of flower.


I placed the Blooming Birthday stamp and the leaves stamp from the Blooming Floral Diecuts and Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked both with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper. 

I placed the matching diecut over the stamped sentiment and leaves, secured both with washi tape and run through the diecut machine. I inked the glass tray with Inchworm Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, added water and painted the stamped leaves image. I adhered the sentiment, stamped leaves and flower which was from my stash and added sequins and a gem to center of flower. There you have it a small card that can be added to a birthday present. I think I might try and do some different theme cards just for the fun of it. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Blooms and Birds Tag

 Hi everyone! I am back this week with a tag that I created for ColorBox but never got to share.


For this tag I place it into the Mosaic Gems 3D Embossing Folder and ran through the Diecut MachineI then inked the glass tray with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Mint, Citronella and Moss added water to each ink and randomly painted the tag completely with a Paint Brush.


Once the tag dried I inked an Art Dauber with Mint Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and lightly inked over the embossed areas of the tag.


I inked the Faux Postal Rollagraph with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and rolled onto a piece of White Chipboard. I cut the bird and floral stamps out with a Paper Cutter.


I inked a glass tray and watercolored the bird stamp with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Moonstone whole bird body, Caribbean tail feathers and chest, Palomino tree branches, Moss-leaves and Tomato-beak and legs. Next I inked the glass tray and watercolored the floral stamp with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Princess-flowers and Moss-leaves. I placed Crinoline Fabric on top of the Journaling Card, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and cut out two sets of flower diecuts. For the flowers I inked the glass tray and watercolored seven flowers with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Princess, Posy and Mulberry and let dry. I inked the Leafy Border Molding Mat with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and applied onto a piece of Watercolor Paper and cut leaves out with ScissorsI cleaned off the glass tray and inked and watercolored the leaf with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Moss and Citronella and while still wet shaped the leaf and let dry.


I adhered the bird stamp image to the tag with a small portion slightly off the tag and I added foam pop dots to back of floral stamp image and placed a small portion slightly off on the other side of the tag.


I added a drop of adhesive to the center of six flowers, placed on top of each other, pinched all together in the center and shaped. 


I added sequin and a pearl to center of flower and a leaf to the back and adhered to the  postal stamp images. I added a smaller flower with sequin and pearl to the bird stamp image along with several loops of thread. I finished the tag by adhering scraps of pom pom trim, lace and pearls to bottom corner of tag and a button on top of trim. I also cut two 8 inch pieces of white seam binding and tied in a bow at the top of tag. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
