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! 😁

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.

Dragonfly Photo Box

Hi everyone! I am back today with a Photo Box I created using Eileen Hull’s Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut and embossing powders by ColorBox. I started by cutting two Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut from Matboard using a Diecut Machine

I cut one of the flaps off of each diecut and placed one of the diecuts in the Floral Frame Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I put the box together according to directions on the Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut packaging.
I used a hot glue gun to adhere the two diecuts together to create a box and I cut to fit three pieces of cardstock and adhere to the sides of the box. 

I adhered lace and flat back pearls to the bottom of the box. 

Next I cut two flowers from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and punch leaves from the mini leaf punch and shape and adhere to the bottom of the box and add a flat back pearl to the center of the flower.

I used two dragonfly diecuts from my own personal stash and ink completely with Aquamarine Chalk Ink

After the ink dried I inked both with Top Box Clear Embossing Ink and added Copper Embossing Powder randomly on both dragonfly diecuts. 

I set the embossing powder with a Heat Tool and applied more Top Box Clear Embossing Ink and complete the same steps with the Gold Sparkle and Opalescent Clear Embossing Powders until desired effect is achieved.

I added adhesive to the center of one of the dragonfly diecuts and glue on top of the other dragonfly diecut. 

I bent the wings up on the dragonfly, adhere to the top of the photo box and add a flatback pearl to finish off the box.

This would be a perfect gift to hold wedding photos, graduate or personal photos in. Also below is links to most of the tools and supplies I used if you want to recreate this project for yourself. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

You have all my Heart Tag

Hi everyone! I am back with another Valentine’s Day project I created for ClearSnap inks and stamps!

I started by inking a glass tray with Melon Blends Ink, added water and placed the Tag into the ink mixture and let dry. (Side note tag doesn’t have to be completely covered in ink.) I placed a piece of Acetate on top of the larger Hearts Journaling Card Diecut and place between cutting plates before running through the Diecut Machine. I removed all loose hearts so I could use the whole heart diecut as a stencil for my tag. I placed the heart stencil on top of the tag and loaded an Art Dauber with Rosebud Classic Pigment Ink and rub over the heart stencil. Next I loaded another Art Dauber with Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink and randomly rub over the heart stencil and let dry.

Next I inked the Exotic Mini Molding Mat with a mix of Petal Point Fluid Chalk Ink Pad: Soft Pastel- Alabaster and Creamy Brown Chalk Inks and stamp randomly over the tag and let dry.

I placed the row of hearts from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and ink with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto the bottom corner of the tag. I glued a scrap of lace and flatback pearls underneath stamped image.

I cut three patterned gold paper straws and adhere together, wrapped with cording and tie and adhered to the tag. 

I added five flatback pearls randomly to the stamped hearts.

I inked the Swirl Heart Rubber Stamp with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of colored cardstock, fussy cut heart out and adhered to straws. I doubled up two Pop Dots and place under heart.

I added three clear sequins to tag and cut 10 inches of lace, threaded through top and tie off and adhered button to top lace.

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

A Heart Full of Thanks Card

Hi everyone! I  know I have been missing in action but I traveled to Arizona to attend Creativation and let me just say it was lots of seminars, meeting new people, networking and getting to see the latest products that will be coming out this year! Plus once home I had another deadline to meet…you know how that goes? But I will share more about my time there later. 😃
I would like to share a quick card I created for ClearSnap. I started by inking the Swirl Heart Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of blush Momenta cardstock. 

I fussy cut the heart image out and add flat back pearls.

I folded a 6″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock, from the MME On Trend Paper Pad, in half to create a 3″x6″ card base. I cut one 2″x6″, one 7/8″x6″ and one 1/4″x6″ from the On Trend Paper Pad and inked the edges with Platinum Ink. I adhered the three strips of cardstock to the base of the card and glued the heart image to the corner of the card.

I inked the Thanks Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and inked the edges with Platinum InkI cut a cardstock mat to frame the Thanks sentiment and inked the edges of both the frame and sentiment with Platinum Ink. I adhered the frame and the sentiment together before gluing to the card.

I punched a mini flower and a leaf sprig from cardstock and adhered to the corner of the sentiment. I also added a flat back pearl to the center of the flower.

Vintage Christmas Angel Gift Bag

Hi everyone! I’m back again with another idea for Christmas! This time I creating a gift bag to hold either candy or small gift.

I started by inking the Christmas angel stamp from Character Constructions: Vintage Christmas No. 4 with Wicked Black Ink onto a piece of Watercolor PaperPush the lid in of each of the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Palomino, Salmon, Posy, Graphite, Moonstone and Scuba. I removed the lid from each ink and add a little water and painted directly from each lid.

I watercolored the angel’s face and hands with Palomino ink and let dry. Next I shaded the face with Salmon ink and painted the outfit with Scuba ink and shade with Graphite ink. The head scarf and belt I painted with Moonstone ink. I painted the candle with Posy ink.
Once dry I fussy cut the angel image out, applied Clear Glitter to wings and outfit and added four flat back pearls to angel.


I cut the following pieces of patterned cardstock: 3″x6″ and 1 7/8″x3 1/2″ and adhered both to the front of the bag. I also cut two strips of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than the bag. I cut a “V” into the end of the strips to create a banner and adhere to the bag.

Next I spritzed a wooden snowflake with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and once dry adhered to the bag. 

I added sequins, buttons and flat back pearls to the snowflake.

I stamped the “Peace on Earth” sentiment from the Vintage Christmas No. 4 Stamp Set with Wicked Black Ink onto a strip of white cardstock and cut a “V” in the end to create a banner and added onto the top of the snowflake.

I applied Pop Dots to the back of the angel and add to the bag. To keep the bag closed I clipped a Mini Clothes Pin to the top of the bag. There you have it another DIY Christmas project that will save you time…as in getting out in all the shopping craziness and it will save you a little money too. 😊
I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:

Spring is in the Air Gift Box Party Favor

Hi everyone! This month’s theme for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team we had to create a DIY project for a party, bridal/baby shower or any type of get together. I decided to create a project that could be used for a women’s retreat/conference or as a party favor for a women’s luncheon. I created a decorative box to hold a small notebook, pen and finger nail file. The notebook and pen comes in handy for note taking. 

I cut two pockets from the Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut. Since I wanted the box to be wider I used the Make it 3D Diecut and cut three sides. All of these diecuts where cut from a heavy kraft cardstock. I embossed the two pockets with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and I lightly inked over both embossed images with a brown chalk ink. 

I didn’t cut the flaps of the pocket off but adhered those over the Make it 3D sides to make the box sturdier. I glued patterned cardstock to the inside before completely putting together. Around the outer sides of the box I adhered patterned cardstock.

Next I cut four of the middle size Heart and Soul Flowers Diecuts from patterned cardstock, shaped and glued together. I added a vintage flower doily that I had found at the Country Living Fair to the center a long with a button. I cut two sprigs of leaves from the Spring Leaves Diecuts, shaped and adhered to the back of the flower.

 I adhered flat-back pearls around both side of the box before adding the flower to the corner of the box.

I added a few flowers from my stash, along with pearl and tulle sprays and a cording bow to finish off the box. 

For more party and shower ideas from Eileen’s Inspiration Team you can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Angel Rolodex Cards and Mail Art

Hi everyone! I am here to share a really quick project I had created for a swap I was in with a fellow Instagramer Linda. 

We had decided to do an altered Rolodex swap…well in my case I have a Rolodex diecut so I cut my cards from cardstock/scrapbook paper. 🙂

I used Christmas Clipart Printables Ephemera Set 11 from Tsunami Rose Designs etsy shop.

I fussy cut the images out and added diecuts/punches, sequins, flat back pearls and a little Stickles to each rolodex card.

I also printed the little girl onto a piece of sticker paper and created my first piece of mail art. I added washi tape and stickers to finish off my envelope. As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Also I would like to submit these rolodex cards for the following challenge:

Noel Card

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick Christmas card I created using the Lost and Found Christmas Collection from My Mind’s Eye. The card base is 3″x6″ and I cut a Scalloped Rectangle (from Spellbinders) out of gold glittered cardstock .

I adhered a strip of patterned cardstock, along with a banner and a Noel sentiment I cut out from the collection.

The miniature snowflake is actually an ornament that I cut the hanger off of it before adding to the banner. I finished it off with a sequin and a mini flatback pearl.
If you have any questions about this card or products I used please let me know.
