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. 💖
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.
Hi everyone! Easter is right around the corner and I am sharing this little shaker mini album I created for this month’s challenge over on Eileen Hull’s blog using Paper Leather, Ink Sheets, Luggage Tag and the Rosebuds embossing folder from the Rosebuds and Seed Packet Set.
You can find past inspiration teams projects HERE and HERE using the Paper Leather and Ink Sheets. Also check out these videos HERE and HERE which gives tips and ideas on how to use to use both of these products.
If you have checked out the links I provided you can see there are so many different things you can create with these!!!
I adhered four of the window tags together along one of the tags that I had glued the plastic to create a window. Once dry I added a variety of sequins, seed beads and a couple Spring like buttons and adhered the other tag with the plastic to create a shaker tag.
I adhered the paper leather to each side of the shaker tag.
I added flowers, button and pearl sprays to the front of the shaker tag.
I covered two of the tags with some gorgeous Karen Foster Easter cardstock and the inserts from the window tags I embellished with a bunny diecut that I had received in a swap. All I had to do was add a mini white pom pom for a tail to finish it off.
I tied all of the tags together with seam binding. I kept embellishments to a minimum since I plan on adding photos either from my Instax printer or from my phone. The two little dangly tags are from swaps too and I thought where a perfect addition. I love how the ink sheets made the paper leather have a “old and gilded” look which compliments the other elements in this mini.
