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.

i-crafter April Blog Hop: Shabby Chic Butterfly Gift Box

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share that I was asked to be a part of the i-crafter Inspiration Team and, of course, I said yes! With this being the first of the month it is time for the quarterly blog hop and the newest release of i-crafter diecuts!

I started by making a “practice butterfly” with the Folded Butterfly 3D (222001) before committing to the finally butterfly for my project. I cut out and folded on each of the indentions on the butterfly. 
I pinched the center of the diecut and wrapped a piece of wire around, secured and shaped. It was very easy to put together.
Now I cut out the “real butterfly” that I used for my project. The only difference I added a sequin and gem for the head and pearl top pins for the antennas.
I covered a box that I had received as a gift with patterned cardstock and trim before adhering the butterfly to the corner of the box. I also added lace, thread, jute, premade flowers, leaves and pearl sprayers to complete this gift box. 
Besides this new butterfly diecut for April these are the other diecuts being released this month.

Now for the fun stuff! Here is the line up of the rest of the i-crafter Inspiration Team! Check each blog and see what each team member has created. Also be sure to leave a little “love” (comment) on each team member’s blog. 

You can find diecuts and other i-crafter products at Simon Says Stamps and i-crafter.

February 14th Love Card and Candy Treat

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with some quick projects for Valentine’s Day using Momenta paper pads, diecuts and a few things from my own personal stash.

I started the card by cutting a piece of black cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad 4 1/4″x 51/2″ (that’s folded).
I raided my stash and adhered a doily to the front of the card. I placed a piece of Adhesive Sheet onto the backside of a piece of cardstock, placed the Love diecut from the Floral Wreath Cut and Emboss onto the cardstock and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. I removed the backing from the “negative” of the love diecut and placed on top of the doily.
I fussy cut a bouquet of flowers from one piece floral cardstock from the Peony Paper Pad and added foam pop dots to the back before placing on the card base. From my stash I adhered “14” and “Feb” from a scrap of cardstock above and below the flowers. I finished the card off by adding messy loops of thread and glitter glue to the leaves and centers of the flowers.
I made another quick project to give as treats for the family. 
I cut two of the smaller diecuts from the  Nested Borders Rectangles Metal Diecuts (it’s a great way to use up scraps of cardstock) and adhered the smaller diecut off center. I punch a hole on each side of the larger diecut.
The love diecut that was leftover from the card and a smaller bunch of fussy cut flowers I adhered to the diecut. I adhered a button, sequin and flatback pearl to the sentiment and place a lolly pop in the puched holes. You can make several of these in an hour and these would be perfect for class parties.

Pull Yourself Together Card

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick and easy card I created! As I had mentioned in a previous blog post ColorBox closed their doors July 31st and I still have a few projects that I created using their product…I know I am slow getting them posted…sorry there is only so much of me to go around in a day but I am getting there. 😕

I started by inking a glass tray with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Salmon and Bumble Bee inks, added water, loaded a paint brush and randomly added the ink mixture to the Tiny Dots Creative Card front and then I let dry. I placed the Swirl Dot Art Screen on top of card, inked an Art Dauber with Tomato Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and rubbed over the art screen. Once I achieved the desired effect I was after I removed the art screen.


I placed the Scallop Square Cutting Template on top of a piece of Watercolor Paper, placed between cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine.I inked the glass tray with Bumble Bee Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, added water and placed the scallop square diecut in the ink mixture and once the diecut was completely covered I removed and let dry. I placed the Pull Yourself Together sentiment from the Buttercup Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto the scallop square diecut. Next I inked an art dauber with Princess Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and inked the edges of scallop square diecut and adhered to the card base. 

I placed a piece of watercolor paper on top of the Intricate Flowers Border Diecut, placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I inked art daubers with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Fruit Punch, Princess and Inchworm and inked the intricate flowers border diecut and glued to the lower half of the card base. I inked the Mandala Heart Wood Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper.Then inked a glass tray with Princess Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, added water and painted the stamped Mandala Heart image and let dry. I fussy cut the heart image out with scissors, added Foam Pop Dots to the back and placed on the card. I then inked two art daubers with Tomato  and Posy Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and inked the lower half of the heart image.

Next I placed the heart stamp from the Thankful Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Posy Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper. I fussy cut the heart image out with scissors and adhered to the larger heart.I finished by adding tulle and thread behind the larger heart. As always if you have any 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.

Daydream Paper Clip

Hi everyone! I want to share another project, a paper clip I altered, that was shown in ClearSnap’s booth this past January at Creativation .

I placed the cloud stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto an Acrylic Block/Precision Press(retired) and inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and I stamped randomly on one side of the folded piece of cardstock. I inked an Art Dauber with Bahama Premium Dye Ink and lightly ink edges of banner and the cloud images.


I cut the stamped clouds cardstock 8″x3 1/2″ and fold in half, 4″x3 1/2″. I cut a “v” in the end of cardstock to create a banner.

I placed the Daydream stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto an acrylic block/Precision Press(retired) and inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of cardstock. Next I cut and folded, inked the edges with Sandstone Premium Dye Ink using an art dauber. I cut two smaller banners from patterned cardstock and slide all stamped and patterned cardstocks around the jumbo paper clip and adhered together.

I punched out a mini butterfly from cardstock and inked an art dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink and inked the mini butterfly, adhered to the “Daydream” banner and add a Black Gem to the body.

I placed the outline of the Butterfly stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto an Acrylic Block/Precision Press(retired) and inked the stamp with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of White CardstockNext I placed the “filled in” image of Butterfly stamp onto an acrylic block or Precision Press…be sure to line up the stamp with the stamped Butterfly cardstock image…ink the stamp with Sandstone Premium Dye Ink and stamp on top of the stamped butterfly image.

I inked three art daubers with the following Premium Dye Inks: RoseRaspberry and Dandelion and inked the majority of the wings with Rose Premium Dye Ink, ink a small portion of the wings, next to the brown, with Raspberry Premium Dye Ink and the inner and the outer portions of the wings with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink. I fussy cut the butterfly image out.

I adhered the butterfly to paper clip banner, added three Black Gems to the body and clear glitter glue to the dots on the butterfly. I looped several gold metallic and yellow threads and glue underneath the butterfly.

Lucky Shamrock Tag

Hi everyone and Happy March the 1st! I wanted to start off the month by sharing a shamrock tag I created!

I started by cutting Good Luck on Ivory Cardstock 6.25″x3.125″ and punching a hole at the top center of the tag.

I inked a glass tray with ColorBox Blends Leaf Ink, added water to the ink, loaded paint brush and splatter tag with mixture. I repeated Step 2 but with ColorBox Blends: Frog Ink and I let the tag dry.

I inked the Shamrock Rubber Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of textured green cardstock. I fussy cut the shamrock image out and adhered an acrylic heart gem to the center of the shamrock image.

I inked the “lucky” sentiment from the Dress Up Stamp and Cut Set and stamp onto white cardstock, cut out and ink edges with Ice Jade Chalk Ink and cut a banner from the  piece of green cardstock, emboss with the Waffle Embossing Folder (retired). Next I inked the edges and over the embossed area with Ice Jade Chalk Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the banner and the banner to the tag. I glued the shamrock image underneath the sentiment with a small portion hanging off the tag.

I finished off the tag by cutting three 6″ pieces of lace and threaded through the hole at the top of the tag, tied off with thread and adhere a button to the lace. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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