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!!!
