Have a Happy Heart Tag

Hi everyone! Sorry to be missing in action so to speak but I have been preparing for my trip to Creativation again this year. I’ve been working on “Top Secret” projects for the show.😉 I do have my second project of the month that I created for Momenta that I would like to share with y’all.


I always have an extra tag laying around that I have sopped up the leftover ink from past projects that I always have on my glass tray.  So I grabbed one of those tags from my stash, extra heavy gel, palette knife and the Floral stencil out of the Floral Stencil Value 4 Sheet Pack

I placed the floral stencil on top of the tag and loaded the palette knife with extra heavy gel and applied over the stencil. I didn’t completely cover the tag with heavy gel. Only in random spots on the tag.

While letting the heavy gel dry…which doesn’t take that long… I inked the Love Birds Rubber Stamp with Pink to Orange Ombre Pigment Ink and stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock. I kinda cleaned the orange ink off of the stamp and inked it with the pink ink and again stamped onto a piece of cardstock. Since the ink is “juicy” I let it dry before fussy cutting the image.


I raided my scraps of patterned cardstock and adhered midway and at the bottom of the tag. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the stamped image and placed on the tag. Before cutting out the words “Happy” and Heart” from the Hope/Dream/Believe Diecuts I applied an Adhesive Sheet to the back of the an piece of gold metallic cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad. Once I cut out the word diecuts I removed the backing from the diecuts and placed midway of the tag.

From the Romance Pack Diecuts I cut the decorative heart bracket with heart out and adhered to the tag.

I finished the tag by adding lace, Ric Rac and gold trim to the bottom of the tag along with three glossy dots. I also added a seam binding bow to the top of the tag.


As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.  If you aren’t following Momenta on their different social medias you can find them at: FacebookInstagram, twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.  

Supplies

Seashell Journal

Hi everyone! I am back with a project I had originally created for ClearSnap using their ColorBox products. If you haven’t heard ClearSnap has closed there doors 😭 which makes me very sad. Their chalk inks where the first I had ever used and I absolutely fell in love with them. I hope that there is some company out there that might buy them out so we all can still enjoy using their wonderful inks, stamps, art screens, etc. I also used Eileen Hull’s Notebook Diecut for this project which is very easy to decorate. 
First off I placed the Mat Board on top of Notebook Diecut and placed between cutting plates and run through the Diecut MachineI placed the Geometrics Art Screen on top of the notebook diecut, loaded Art Daubers with the following Misty Meadow Chalk Inks: Ice Blue, French Blue, Ice Jade and Wisteria Chalk Inks and inked the cover. 

Once the notebook was completely covered I removed the art screen.

I removed the cover from a plain store bought notebook, punched two holes (top and bottom) in the spine of the notebook cover and did the same with plain notebook. 

Before tying off  the plain notebook to the inside cover I add a tassel to spine with Jute.

I inked the Faux Postal Rollagraph with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and rolled onto White Cardstock. Next I fussy cut the seashell stamp image out with Scissors. I loaded art daubers with Creamy Brown Chalk Ink from the Soft Pastels Chalk Petal Points, inked the seashell image and edges and adhered to the notebook cover.

I placed white cardstock on top of journal diecut from the Journaling Words Diecuts  placed between cutting plates and run through diecut machine. I inked an art dauber with Wisteria Chalk Ink from the Misty Meadow Chalk Inks, inked the journal diecut and adhered above seashell image.

I finished off by punching a hole in front cover of notebook and placing a screw fastener. I cut and tied jute to the jute on spine, tied off and placed around the  Screw Fastener to create a closure. Since I used Eileen’s diecuts in this project you can find more inspiration from the rest of her team HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Spring Butterfly Tag

Hi everyone and happy Monday! I want to share a springy tag I created for ClearSnap!

I started by inking a glass tray with Hydrangea Blends Ink, adding water and placing the Tag in the ink mixture. The tag didn’t have to be completely covered so I removed and let dry. I cleaned the glass tray and inked with Frog Blends Ink, added a small amount of water to ink and randomly lay parts of the tag in mixture, removed and let dry. Next I inked the Simple Dots Rollagraph with Glacier Lake Archival Dye Ink and roll over tag.

I placed the Tear Drop Circle Diecut on top of a piece of Textured White Cardstock and  placed between two cutting plates and ran through the Diecut Machine. I placed the first Butterfly Art Screen on top of the Tear Drop Circle Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Citronella Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over the screen and removed.

I placed the second Butterfly Art Screen directly over stenciled area of butterfly, ink art dauber with Shamrock Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over screen and removed.

I placed the third Butterfly Art Screen directly over stenciled area of the butterfly, inked an art dauber with Moonstone Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over screen.  

Once I removed the screen I inked an art dauber with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink over the edges of diecut. I added pop dots to the back of the Tear Drop Circle Diecut and place on top of tag. With a paper cutter I cut a piece of patterned cardstock 1 7/8″x4 1/4: and cut a “v” in the end which creates a banner. I adhered the banner to the tag.

I cut from textured white cardstock Flowers and leaves from crinoline fabric from the Journaling Cards Flowers  and Leaves DiecutsI inked an art dauber with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink the edges of two of the flower diecuts, shaped and adhere both flowers together. I added a button to the center of the flower. I inked an art dauber with Olive Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink over the crinoline fabric leaf and adhered to back of flower before adding to tag. Next I made two bows one from seaming binding and one from thread and adhered both to the corner and underneath flower.


I placed the “For Small Wonders” stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamp Set on the MISTI Stamp Tool  Ink with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of textured white cardstock. I cut the word “Small” and “Wonders” out with a paper cutter. Cut a “v” in the end of each to create a banner and adhered both to the bottom of stenciled butterfly and under the flower. I cut three 8 inch pieces of ribbon and lace and threaded all pieces through the top of tag. Tie off and adhere a button to ribbon and lace. 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.

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

ClearSnap: BBQ Recipe Booklet

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick and easy mini recipe booklet I created using the Needle Book DiecutColorBox: Paint Box Chalk Ink Arctic Deep and ColorBox: Art Screens Stars.
I started by applying one 6″x6″ Adhesive Sheet to a piece of chip board. I cut a piece of Navy and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock to cover the chip board. I peeled the backing of adhesive sheet off and apply Navy and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock. I placed the “naked” side of the chipboard face down onto the Needle Book Diecut and run through the diecut machine.

I placed the Art Screens Stars stencil on top of the diecut and loaded an Art Dauber with Paint Box Chalk Ink Arctic Deep and rub over the stencil until I had achieved the desired effect. I cut five Journal Lines on Ivory Cardstock slightly smaller than the book and fold in half and punched two small holes into the spine of the book. I placed the folded pages inside the book and where the holes are in the spine marked off one of the pages and then punch holes into all pages. I threaded the needle and sewed the pages into the book and tie off.
I inked the BBQ Grill Rubber Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, fussy cut the grill image out, adhered to the cover of the recipe book and add three glossy dots to the legs of the grill.

I cut the word “recipes” from the Farmhouse Market on Ivory Cardstock and glue to the cover. I also cut a piece of elastic cording and tie to the belly band. Once desired tightness of the band is achieved place around the recipe book.

Now all I have to do is add all my old recipes that I have laying around into my little recipe booklet. No more searching because everything will be in one place! 😀 As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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

Word Art Wednesday: Challenge Weeks #338-#339
Crafter’s Castle Challenge: #6

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

ClearSnap: Dad and Me Jar

Hi everyone! I’m back with another quick and easy project for Father’s Day using a few of my favorite ColorBox Blends. I started by applying Beach and Leaf ColorBox Blends onto a glass tray. I placed the Zig Zag Art Screen on top of the Tag. I inked up an Art Dauber with beach ink and applied over the stencil. I repeated the same steps with the leaf ink. I removed the stencil and with the art daubers I rub the excess ink over the white of the tag. I also cut approximately an inch off of the bottom of the tag.
I stamped the Dad Bear and Child Bear stamp onto four different pieces of patterned cardstock with ColorBox Archival Dye Wicked Black Ink. I fussy cut dad bear, child bear, sweater and pattern image from sweater out separately and adhered pieces together. I cut a piece of patterned cardstock to fit the center of tag and glued to the tag along with the bear images. I finished off by cutting and tying the tag with 18 inches of cording around the neck of a 15 oz. jar. The excess cording I tied into a bow and now all I need to do is add peanut M&Ms and I will have a happy husband.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!

Bona’s Mix Media Tag Swap

I would like to share a tag I created for Bona’s (aka Live Love Scrap) mix media tag swap that she hosted on her blog. I am in such awe of her creativity and was super excited I actually was able to get into one of her swaps.
I used a #8 tag which I did washes of the following paints: Folk Art (Slate Blue), Americana (Spa Blue), Ceramcoat (Turquoise and Green Tea).


After the washes dried I glued a piece of a 1920 dictionary page to the tag and then used Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens Fanciful Stencils over part of the page and tag. I then let that dry. I used Perfect Pearls Mists Sour Apple and sprayed a little coat of glimmer to the tag. I used the following rubber stamps: KaiserCraft (bird cage), Christy Tomlinson (butterfly), Limited Edition (complex corner) and Stampabilities (Felt With the Heart). The birdcage, quote and the butterfly I used StazOn Timber Brown and Teal Blue ink and for the complex corner I used Stampin Up’s Craft white ink. The quote I cut apart and inked all of the edges and glued to the tag. Then I fussy cut the butterfly out and applied glue to the center of the body. I folded the wings up to make the butterfly look like it was flying. To finish it off I added a bit of lace , button and a Robin’s Egg Dew Drop to the top of the button and then it was finshed.

I also created a envelope of goodies using a Tattered Angel Field Notes Stamp set, seam binding, scrapbook paper. I included this with each tag I created.


 Also when you have a chance check out Bona’s You Tube video. I’ve included the link here. I hope this will inspire you to create your own tag.

Thanks for looking and enjoy creating!!!
