A Cup of Tea Warms the Soul Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on the blog today and share a quick tag I created using Pam Bray’s Chat Time Rubber Stamps by Emerald Creek. I received this stamp set while I was at Creativation and I was super pumped because Pam is a dear friend of mine and because I finally had my hands on one of her sets of stamps.
I started by placing the larger of the two mugs onto the MISTI Stamp Tool and stamping on a piece of patterned cardstock from the Prima Dulce Collection. I fussy cut the stamped image out and with a Craft Knife cut around the outer edge of the stamped mug to create a slit.
I already had a tag that I had added excess inks from pervious projects to so all I did was emboss it with the Brush Dot Embossing Folder and start adding bits of patterned cardstock I had laying around. Before I adhered the mug to the tag I placed one of the Paper Dolls in the slit.
I decorated the mug with flatback pearls and sequins. I also added flowers and leaves that I had cut from the Floral Garden Diecuts, I shaped the flowers and leaves and adhered loops of thread to the back before gluing to the mug. I also placed the “A Cup of Tea Warms the Soul like a Good Friend” sentiment (I cut it from a scrap piece of G45 cardstock) underneath/next to the mug. 

Next I added a bit of pom pom trim to the bottom of the tag and instead of cut off the excess I left it hanging and I tied a lace bow at the top of the tag. There you have it! I’m so happy with how it turned out and if you would like to see more of Pam’s creativity you can stop by her blog HERE. If you would like to purchase Pam’s stamps, digital images and embossing powders you can find the shop HERE

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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.

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.

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!

Chills and Thrills Momenta Tag

Hi everyone! I am back with a quick and easy Halloween tag I created for Momenta!
I started by cutting a tag from black cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad. I added a patterned doily and a scrap of an orange diecut from my own stash to the tag. Next I used a scrap of green cardstock (same paper pad) for the 3 and 1 from the Number Cutting Templates  and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. I adhered a 2″ Doily to the front of the tag before adhering the “31” on top of the doily. I cut a pumpkin from scraps of cardstock (same paper pad). But before cutting I added Adhesive Sheets to the back to make it easier to put together. I cut a “v” in the end of a scrap of white cardstock before adhering under the 31. Then I added a green mat around the chills and thrills sentiment before adhering to the tag along with the pumpkin.
To add the finishing touches to the tag I pried off the gem from a decorative metal piece from Momenta (retired) and applied clear embossing to the top of it. 

I added Black Magic Molten Dimensions Embossing Powder to the metal piece and set with the Heat Tool. Once it was cool to the touch I added a black gem to the center of the metal piece before adhering on top of the lace and pom pom trim at the bottom of tag. 

And there you have it! If you aren’t following Momenta you can find them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Once the tag dried I inked an Art Dauber with Mint Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and lightly inked over the embossed areas of the tag.


I inked the Faux Postal Rollagraph with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and rolled onto a piece of White Chipboard. I cut the bird and floral stamps out with a Paper Cutter.


I inked a glass tray and watercolored the bird stamp with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Moonstone whole bird body, Caribbean tail feathers and chest, Palomino tree branches, Moss-leaves and Tomato-beak and legs. Next I inked the glass tray and watercolored the floral stamp with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Princess-flowers and Moss-leaves. I placed Crinoline Fabric on top of the Journaling Card, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and cut out two sets of flower diecuts. For the flowers I inked the glass tray and watercolored seven flowers with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Princess, Posy and Mulberry and let dry. I inked the Leafy Border Molding Mat with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and applied onto a piece of Watercolor Paper and cut leaves out with ScissorsI cleaned off the glass tray and inked and watercolored the leaf with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Moss and Citronella and while still wet shaped the leaf and let dry.

I added a drop of adhesive to the center of six flowers, placed on top of each other, pinched all together in the center and shaped. 


I added sequin and a pearl to center of flower and a leaf to the back and adhered to the  postal stamp images.
