Let’s Set Sail Card with DCC and Maker’s Movement Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share my project for this month’s blog hop with Designer Connection Crafts and Maker’s Movement!

93970375_3404191776262677_7417199419709194240_n.jpg107928231_2801555306611589_8097529066641871709_n.jpg

First thing I did was cut a piece of Kraft Cardstock 5 1/2″x 5 1/2″ folded to create the base for my card. I used a 6×6 pad of 7Gypsies Maritime (retired) on the front and all it took was two sheets from the collection to decorate. One of the sheets I fussy cut, distressed and rolled and added Foam Pop Dots to the back to add dimension and depth.
For the bottle I cut two bottle diecuts from the Clear Acetate Sheets and one outline of the bottle from the Double-sided Adhesive Craft Foam,the bottle stopper from cork and one from a piece of teal patterned cardstock. I peeled the backing and applied the acetate to the bottom side of the foam outline. I placed the ship and “Let’s Set Sail” Sentiment stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with water proof Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I then used the appropriate diecuts to cut each one out. I watercolored the ship and once dry placed inside the outline of the bottle along with the cork, seed beads and sequins before placing the other solid piece of acetate over it. I applied the teal outline over the acetate, lightly distressed the edges of the bottle and adhered to the front of the card. 
I inked the edges of the stamped sentiment before gluing to the bottom corner of the card. I also added bits of inked cheese cloth to give a little texture to the card. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also be sure to stop by the DCC blog and see what the other designers have created! You can find the blog post HERE

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.

Hot Pink Floral Extended Mini Book Case

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Tiny Book Case Diecut with a fun added “twist”!
After applying an Adhesive Sheets to both sided of a piece of Chipboard I added patterned cardstock to each side, placed the diecut on top and run through the Diecut Machine. As in the photo below you can see where I cut an extra set of “flaps”. 
I adhered the “extra set” of flaps to the front of the case.
I also glued the bottom halves and the lid together.
I cut strips of patterned cardstock the same size as the outside and inside of the case and adhered to give it a cleaner look. 
I cut cording and tied to the closure and added a button, sequin and gem to the center of the closure.

I added an assortment of flowers and leaves, handmade and store bought, to the top of the lid along with lace, cheese cloth, thread bows and pearl sprays.
There you have it! I absolutely LOVE this bookcase diecut and how versatile this diecut is! 
For more inspiration stop by Eileen’s blog to see the latest projects from the rest of team! You can find the latest blog post HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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.

Bouquet Pocket Tag

Hi everyone! I am here with my second Momenta project for the month! Since I love creating tags I decided I would try my hand at making a pocket tag. Plus I had been sick with a stomach bug and about all I could do was lay around and fussy cut flowers and leaves out from the Peony Paper Pad. 😖

I started by cutting a tag, 6.25″x3.25″, from one of the cardstocks from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad. Next I cut a piece of polka dot metallic cardstock from the same paper pad 4″x3.25″ and used a scalloped punch on the 3.25″ end. I “curled” the scalloped side down and adhered to the tag.

I fussy cut several leaves and flowers from the Peony Paper Pad.

Before adding the assortment of flowers and leaves I shaped several with a Stylus to give them a little dimension. 
I adhered a piece of lace behind one of the flowers and I added several loops of thread to the pocket too.

 I added sequins to the center of  two fo the flowers and a little glitter glue on the rest of the flowers. 
Beside finding Momenta on their website which can be found HERE. You can find Momenta also on:FacebookInstagram and Twitter.

Scalloped Edge Punch
Beacon Adhesive: Zip Dry Adhesive

Count Every Beautiful Thing Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back today and wanted to share this colorful and slightly quirky tag I created using Eileen Hull’s Blends Inks.

I started by inking my glass tray with Sunshine and Melon Blends Inks, adding water and placing the tag into the ink mixture. Once the tag was completely covered I removed and let dry. I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Berry Pigment Ink from the Mermaid Paintbox Collection and randomly inked over the tag.

I inked the Doll Faces Rollagraph with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink, rolled onto a piece of Watercolor Paper  and cut out the face of girl looking straight ahead. I inked the Butterfly Wooden Stamp with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. Again I inked the glass tray with following Taos Petal Point: Amber and the Mermaid Paintbox Papaya Cream and Berry Inks. I added water and painted the butterfly image with ink mixtures and let dry. I fussy cut the butterfly image out, cut down the middle, added Clear Glitter Glue around outer edge of butterfly and once dry I adhered the butterfly wings, one on either side of the face image. 
I placed Watercolor Paper  on the Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle Large Diecut, placed between the cutting plates and run through the Diecut MachineBefore cleaning the glass tray I randomly placed the scalloped rectangle diecut into the leftover ink mixture from butterfly. Then removed and let dry. Next I inked the glass tray with Sunshine Blends Ink, added water, placed the scalloped rectangle diecut into the ink mixture and once completely covered with  the ink mixture I removed and let dry. I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Amber Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and stamped onto the scalloped rectangles diecut.  

I placed the “Play in the Sun” stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto the lower half of the scalloped rectangle diecut. Next I inked two leaves from a leaf sprig punch with Turtle Pigment Ink and once dry adhered next to the word ‘thing” along with sequins and a gem.

I placed vellum on top of the Delightful Circles Diecuts  placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I adhered to the backside of the scalloped rectangle diecut and then adhered to the tag.
I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the butterfly face image before placing above the stamped sentiment.
I finished by adhering lace to the bottom of tag and adding a button, sequin, gem at bottom corner of tag and tying a bow at the top of the tag. I hope you like this tag as much as I enjoyed creating it. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Stars on the 4th of July Card

Hi everyone! If you celebrated Independence Day like me and my family I hope you had a great time. Mine was spent lounging in the pool or on the lounge chair reading with a little eating on the side. 😎 I want to share a 4th of July card I created for Momenta.
I started by cutting and folding a piece of cardstock (retired Momenta 12″x12″ Basic Paper Pad Collection) 5 1/2″x4 1/4″ to create the base for the card. I selected a piece of blue cardstock from the Gemstones 8″x8″ Paper Pad and with the Star Confetti Metal Die Template I cut out one diecut. I adhered a piece of white cardstock to the back of the diecut before adding Foam Pop Dots and placing on the card base.

I used a 2″ Watercolor Doily but flipped it over on the back since it was white and adhered to the corner of the diecut. 
From the same blue cardstock I cut the number 4 with the Numbers Cut and Emboss Template and adhered to the doily. I cut the word July from red cardstock from the Metallic Paper Pad using the Months of the Year Cutting Template.

I finished the card by adding sequins, gems and a red twine bow to the card. Be sure to stop by Momenta’s website to see the latest projects! You can find their site HERE. As always if you have any questions about this card please let me know.

I would also like to submit this card for the following challenge:

Summer Floral Altered Jumbo Paperclip

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a project I created for Momenta! I created this easy bookmark with several bits and pieces I had leftover from my past Momenta projects.

I started by folding a 3 1/4″x8″ piece of lilac/purple and gold polka dot cardstock in half from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad and cutting a “v” in the end of both before sliding one end of the cardstock around a jumbo paperclip. I adhered both ends together  and added a doily from the 2″ Watercolor Doily Collection.

I had several floral scraps leftover from the Peony Paper Pad and part of a diecut leftover from the Floral Cutting Template Diecut. I fussy cut a flower and several leaves out from the leftover scraps. I shaped the leaves before adhering to the backside of the flower. Before adhering the diecut to what I had cut out I inked the leaves with green ink.

I added foam pop dots to the back of the floral mix and placed on the bookmark. I glued sequins and gems to the flowers and leaves and I placed green thread and pearl sprays to the corner. Also from the same leftover diecut I cut out the butterfly and added pink ink to the wings before adhering to the bookmark.
This project was under an hour to complete and would be perfect to give as an add-on gift with a good book. If you need more inspiration go to Momenta which you can find HERE. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Butterfly House Gift Box

Hi everyone! I am back this week with a gift idea for Mother’s Day! I created this little gift box for ClearSnap to be shown in their booth at Creativation this past January and I am finally getting around to sharing this fun piece.
I started by placing the outline of the Butterfly stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto the Acrylic Block/Precision Press/MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock.

I placed the “filled in” image of the butterfly stamp onto the Acrylic Block/Precision Press…the precision press is no longer available but since creating this project I now own a MISTI Stamping Tool which I love. I made sure to line up the stamp with the stamped butterfly cardstock image after inking the stamp with Sandstone Premium Dye Ink and stamped on top of the stamped butterfly image.

I inked three Art Daubers with the following Premium Dye Inks: Coral, Dandelion and Black. I inked a majority of the butterfly image with Coral Premium Dye Ink and the inner and outer edges of the butterfly wings are inked with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink. The butterfly body  was inked with Black Premium Dye Ink. I fussy cut the butterfly image out.

I put a 2″x3″ box together. The second box I cut the lid/flap off and adhere the 3″x3″ piece to the smaller folded flap of box. 

Next I glued the other smaller folded flap to the inside of the box. 

The smaller flap I glued to the other side of the larger flap. 

This creates the roof for the butterfly house.

I cut four pieces of patterned cardstock 2″x3″ and inked an art dauber with Leather Premium Dye Ink and inked all edges of cardstock before adhering to the base of the 2″x3″ box. I measured and mark in 1″ increments on both sides of the roof and cut four 1 1/2″x3″ and one 3″x3″ brown cardstock and ink an art dauber with Leather Premium Dye Ink. 

I inked edges of all pieces of cardstocks. On the marked places on the roof, I started at the bottom of the roof and  work upwards by adding the 1 1/2″x3: pieces of cardstock. Before adding adhesive to the 3″x3″ piece of cardstock I folded in half to create a 1 1/2″x3″ roof peak. Then I adhered to the peak of the roof.

I inked and stamp the “Be Grateful” and “For Small Wonders” stamps from the Butterfly Clear Stamps with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of cardstock. I cut both to 1 1/2″x2 1/2″ plus one plain piece of cardstock the same size.

 I inked an art dauber with Leather Premium Dye Ink and ink all edges of cardstock. I then adhered the sentiments to each side of the house. The plain cardstock I adhered to the backside of the house. I punched two mini butterflies from white cardstock and inked both butterflies with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink using an art dauber. I adhered mini butterflies to each side of the house and added Black Gems to the center of each butterfly.

Next I punched from white cardstock a decorative punch (any punch/diecut will work as a long as it fits the front of the base of the box) and inked an art dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink and ink the edges of the punch. I glued to the front of the base of the box and adhered the stamped butterfly to the center of the base of the box and add black gems to the body.

I placed a piece of white cardstock on top of the Flower Journaling Card Diecut and place both between two cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine.

I loaded an art dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink and inked flower diecuts, shaped and adhered flowers to each side of the roof. 

I added leaf sprigs, pearl sprays and twine/cording to flowers. 

I added a mix of gold gems and sequins to the center of each flower. Now all you have to do is add a small gift such as candy or jewelry inside and it is ready to give as a gift.
