ClearSnap: Autumn Leaves Shaker Tag

Hi everyone! I back after being in Nashville for a few days awaiting the arrival of my grandson. He was born on the 3rd and lets say I am completely in love with this little guy! I can’t wait to make another trip soon for more snuggles. ūüíĖ¬†


Even though here in the South it always seems we will never see cooler weather…we still have temperatures in the upper 80’s and lower 90’s…I decided to create an autumn shaker tag.


I started by placing the Leave and Journaling Diecut on the cutting pad and one Foam Adhesive Sheet on top of the diecut and place other cutting pad on top and run through diecut machine. I completed the same steps with patterned cardstock instead of foam adhesive.I removed the leaves diecuts from the center of the journaling diecuts, foam adhesive and patterned cardstock. I removed the leaves center diecut from the center of the   journaling card diecut and cut one diecut from patterned cardstock.
I peeled the backing from foam adhesive and place the solid journaling card diecut on top of the foam. I placed an assortment of micro beads and sequins into each leave and cut a piece of acetate/clear packaging to cover the front of the shaker tag. I peeled the backing carefully from the foam so the beads and sequins won’t fall out and placed the acetate/packaging onto the foam.



Next I adhered the patterned cardstock leaves diecut on top of the acetate/packaging and added jute cording around the outer edge of the shaker tag.



I cut leaves from watercolor paper with the Leaves Diecut. I inked a glass tray with Coral, Dandelion and Leather Premium Dye Inks and add water to each color. I placed two of the leaves into the ink mixture until desired effect is achieved. While the leaves were still wet  I shaped and let dry.



Once the leaves were dry I applied the Top Boss Clear Embossing Stamp Pad to the edges of the leaves and applied Copper Embossing Powder to stamped edges and set with the heat embossing tool.



I completed the same steps for both Gold Sparkle and Opalescent embossing powders as I as done with the copper embossing powder.


I adhered both leave diecuts to the top of the shaker tag and added cording to the button and adhere the middle of the leave diecuts. As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.



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

Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes: #354-#355
Crafter’s Castle: Challenge #10

Autumn is in the Air Candle Holder

Hi everyone! I’m back and I wanted to share a quick Fall home decor project I created for ClearSnap.¬†

You can use any size jar for this project. First I adhered Jute Cording around the jar three times.

Underneath the jute I applied Antique Mod Podge with a sponge brush and add Sprinkle! Chunky Glitter onto the Mod Podge area of the jar. Shake off excess and let dry.

Apply mini gems around the top of the jute cording.

Cut two medium flowers and three small flowers from Crinoline fabric with the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts. Lightly ink two art daubers with Red Barn and Carney Inks and apply to the center of each flower. 

Once dry add a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower. Lay each flower on top of each other and pinch the center of all the flowers and shape.

I cut one Leaf out of Watercolor Paper from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecut. Ink art dauber with Carney Ink and apply over the leaf diecut and shape leaf.

Apply Top Boss Embossing pad to the edges of the leaf. Sprinkle Copper Embossing Powder over the embossed area of the leaf and set embossing powder with heat tool. 

I completed the same steps as above with each of the following embossing powders: Gold Sparkle and Opalescent Embossing Powders.

Loop two hemp cordings and tie off along with a couple of messy loops of yellow and peach thread. Adhere to the back of the flower along with the leaf and glue to jar. 

Add lace and pearl sprays behind the flower and to finish off all you need is a battery operated candle.

This project would be prefect for an Autumn wedding too. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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

Jute Fairy

Hi everyone! I want to share another project I created a few months ago but wasn’t able to share until now. I used jute matboard from Crescent and Eileen Hull’s Canning Jar 3D item # 658453 (this diecut is retired), Heart and Flower and Spring Leaves diecuts.

I put everything together according to the directions. I shaped the flowers and added buttons to the centers, along with twine and pearl sprays.

The little girl image I printed from the internet and the Fairy Wings I purchased from Altered Pages. I fussy cut everything out.  I added a little crumpled tissue page inside the jar and then I adhered the little girl, wings (I lightly added Stickles to the wings), moss and lace.

I  cut and adhered Gold Cardstock lid, lace and grim trim to the jar.

I am submitting this project for the following challenges:

Jute Halloween Pocket Candy Holder

Hi everyone! Has the weather started cooling off where you live? Here, we are in the lower 80’s but the nights are starting to fill more Fall like so it won’t be long before I’ll be wearing layers and complaining about the cold weather. LOL ūüôā
Well, I am here today to share a Halloween project I created several months ago but wasn’t able to share until now.

Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team had teamed up with Crescent this past Summer and we got to play with samples of Jute Matboard (you can find this in full sheets 32″x40″ in custom framing shops art stores). For my project I thought the black jute¬†mat board would make a great Halloween project.¬†

I started by cutting a Flower Pocket diecut from the jute matboard and from patterned cardstock (to line the inside of the pocket).

I cut the Medallions diecut out twice from patterned cardstock and put together according to the directions. I added thread, twine along with button, sequin and a Dew Drop to the medallion before adhering it to the corner of the pocket.

The other corner I added a jack o lantern sticker from my stash and finished off with sequins, flower, dew drop and thread.

I can either add candy (which I have none on hand…lol) or use it to keep all of my Halloween goodies in one place. ūüôā
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!

Canvas Banner of Love Banner

Hi everyone! I am back to share a banner I created for Canvas Corp’s booth at CHA. I used a variety of canvas shapes as follows: Canvas Pennants, Pocket and Tag to create the bases for a love banner. I spattered and sprayed all of the shapes with the following glimmer¬†mists and glam glitter paints: Cadillac Pink, Wedding Pink and Grandma’s House.

I cut a scalloped circles from Lt Pink Burlap and Pink and Ivory Toile Cardstock to add to the various banner shapes.

I cut the letters LOVE from the Black on Kraft Alpa cardstock. and framed with some of the letters with Pink Lemonade Thickstock and a heart was cut from the Pink Lemonade for the center banner too.

I adhered a Vintage Brass Heart along with pink thread, button and dew drop to the corner of the heart.

On a couple of the banners I used White Mini Bags in a fun way to frame some of the letters along with Lace, thread and Jute.

The medallions for some of the banners are cut from Pink and Ivory Ribbon Stripe cardstock which I punched out and added Pink Lemonade Thickstock circles to the centers along with a button and some Jute.
When all the banners where finished I spaced and clipped with a Mini Lt. Pink Clothes Pin to Waxed Cotton White Cord. There you have it a simple Valentine’s Day banner.
Here are a couple of photos that my friend Jennifer took of my banner being displayed in Canvas Corps booth.

If you have any questions about how this banner was made and put together please let me know.

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

Rustic Christmas Stocking

Hi everyone! Canvas Corp and¬†Petaloo Flowers are blog hopping together and I want to share a ¬†project I created using the Large Burlap Stocking¬†and Petaloo DIY Burlap Flowers which can be painted or misted to¬†compliment your projects. I don’t own a sewing machine and I sure didn’t¬†want to hand sew everything to the stocking so I used¬†Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac. It “grabs” fast and dries quick which I love!
I started by adding from my own stash green Ric Rac and red pom poms to the cuff of the stocking. 

I misted two of the larger DIY flowers with Gold Glimmer Mist and set a side. The smaller DIY flower I sprayed Plain Jane Baseboard Fire Mist into a disposable bowl and added a couple of drops of water and mixed and with a small paint brush applied the mixture to the flower and let dry. Once the larger flowers are dry I used the leftover Fire Baseboard mist and lightly applied color around the center.
I used the Holly Branch diecut to cut out three holly leaves from a 12×12 sheet of Green Burlap. I then applied Mod Podge to both sides of¬†the leaves and once dry I spritzed on one side Kiwi Glimmer Mist.
Next I made a couple bows from the Natural Jute and Lime Green Hemp. Also I cut two three inch pieces of lace from the Lace Trimmings Assorted Pack, gathered in the center and  folded to make what looks like a fan and tied off with the Natural Jute. Now for the fun part arranging everything on the cuff. I added in a couple of buttons too for some visual interest.

Now it is finished and ready for Santa to fill with goodies. If you do have any questions about this project please let me know.

Canvas Christmas Ornaments

Hi everyone! I am back with part two of my Christmas ornaments that I created from the Farmhouse Christmas Fabric Panel. I used the following Tattered Angels glimmer and Chalkboard mist: Crushed Shells, Olive Vine, Rum Punch and Monolith which I spritzed each color into bowls and added a couple of drops of water to each one. I then painted each of the images I selected from the fabric panel. I let each one dry.

I then fussy cut each image out.

I cut a 6 inch piece of Natural Jute for each ornament which I folded and placed on the back side of the ornament and then I applied Mod Podge to the back and placed the Lime Green Canvas over that and let dry. Once dry I fussy cut around the image of the ornament.

I then applied more Mod Podge to the front and back of the ornament and let dry. This seals and keeps it from fraying.

I used scraps from the following cardstocks: Red and White Mini Dot Reverse, Lime Green and White Dot Reverse, Lime Green and White Ribbon Stripe and Red and Green Pin Dot on White cardstocks to decorate some of the ornaments with.

I love this little reindeer with his fancy collar and bow tie. I can hear the song…Ruldoph with your nose so bright ūüôā

This ornament I actually cut two different images out and put together. I love the way it turned out.

There you have it six different ornaments ready when December gets here to put on the tree or add to packages. If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is awesome and enjoy creating!
