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