Here is another set of tags featuring Lawn Fawn’s Let Bokeh stamp set.

030

Details

Extra Details:  I began these tags with a half sheet of white card stock. I used the solid circle stamps to create a pattern along the bottom edge of the half sheet of card stock. I overlapped the larger circles; then just stacked the smaller circles on the top. I used 5 different shade of pink ink.

I stamped some snowflakes in the circles with a light grey ink. Then, I cut out the tags using a die. I also die cut the small snowflake tags from some grey card stock. I stamped a sentiment on the grey snowflakes and tied the two tags together with white twine.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Let’s Bokeh, Tiny Tag Sayings, and Frosties

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Winter Tiny Tags and Tag You’re It

Ink: Versa Fine

I love Lawn Fawn’s Let’s Bokeh stamp set. There are so many ways to use it.

Details

Extra Details: I began these tags with a half sheet of white card stock. I used the Let’s Bokeh stamp set to stamp a circle pattern on the panel. Once the stamping was complete, I die cut 5 tags. I also added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to the red circles for some sparkle.

To finish the tags, I die cut some smaller ornaments from some red card stock. I cut the toppers form some grey card stock. I glued the toppers to the red ornaments.   I stamped the sentiment in black ink. I added some more Wink of Stella to the red ornaments.

Lastly, I tied the two tags together with black twine.

Christmas Tags 3.4

November 12, 2017

I am slightly obsessed with all of the new ink color I have just purchased. There are so many and they are all so pretty. To help decide which colors to use, I Googled “vintage Christmas fabric” to find the color scheme for these tags.

037

Details

Extra Details: I began these tags with a half sheet of white card stock. Using the MISTI, I created a pattern of the trees. Then I cut 5 tags from the half sheet of paper.

I also cut 5 smaller tags from some more white card stock. I stamped the tree again on the bottom of the small tag and added a small grey star. I also add in the sentiment in the same grey ink.

As I layered the tags together, I felt the top tag was too plain. I decided to add a re-enforcer that I stamped with the same tree stamp and ink color. I also dragged the edges of the smaller tag in the grey ink.

I think these tags turned out great.

Christmas Tags 3.3

November 12, 2017

My daughter’s swim season just ended this morning, so I still have all things water on the brain. I made these sets of tags with the Mermaid for You Stamp set.

038

Details

Extra Details: I began these tags with a half sheet of smooth white card stock. I used Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire and Blueprint Sketch to add the color to the paper. I started by ink blending, but couldn’t get the color dark enough, so I used the ink pads directly on the paper. I used the ink blending tools after applying the ink pad to even things out a bit. That technique worked really well.

After the Distress Ink dried, I added a bokeh effect using Lawn Fawn’s Yeti White Pigment Ink and the Let’s Bokeh stamp set. I really love how the white ink stands out against the dark ink colors.

Once the white pigment ink was dry, I used a tag die to cut out 5 tags and five re-enforcers. I also cut the smaller tag from some velum.

I stamped and colored the mermaid images and hats on a scrap of white card stock. I used colored pencils to color everything in. I fussy cut out each of the images and painted the edges black with a black marker. I adhered the hats to the mermaids with some liquid glue. I used foam tape to adhere the images to the tags.

I silver embossed a sentiment on the velum tags and added the re-enforcers. I am out of twine at the moment, so I could tie the two tags together.

Christmas Tags 3.2

November 12, 2017

Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming! I have begun to make my Christmas tags. This set was inspired by the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

036

Details

Size:  4 inches by 2 ¼ inches

Extra Details:  I began by cutting some white card stock into some rectangles. I used Versa Mark ink and a variety of embossing powders to add the images to the tags. I used a dark blue embossing powder for the sentiment. I used silver glitter embossing powder for the larger snowflakes and silver embossing powder for the smaller snowflakes.

I punched a hole at the top of each of the tags. I added some small jewels to the larger snowflakes as a finishing touch.

World Card Making Day was so much fun. I watched a ton of inspirational videos on YouTube and created a number of cards also. This card was inspired by the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Christmas

012

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a light grey card base. I stamped the solid diamonds in red ink. I added the stitching in grey ink. I stamped the sentiment in black ink to help it stand out.

I die cut the mittens from some white card stock. I flipped one mitten over so that it looked like I had a pair of mittens. I stamped the diamonds and stitching with the same inks as the card front. I stamped the grey ink pad on the cuffs of the mittens to add some more color.

I used a red twine from my stash to connect the two mittens. I adhered the mittens to the card base with foam squares. I used a little liquid glue to adhere the twine to the card base. Lastly, I added some Wink of Stella to the mittens for some sparkle.

I just bought the new Lawn Fawn Winter Tiny Tags and couldn’t wait to play with them. I used some adhesive backed glitter paper to create these cards.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began by die cutting the ornament from three colors of glitter card stock. I also cut out the star in the center of each ornament for added interest. I adhered the ornaments to three white card bases.

I stamped the stings using Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Sayings stamp set. I added a sentiment to the bottom of each card.

For the finishing touch I added the holographic toppers to each ornament. I die cut those from some old packaging I had saved.

I really love this card set and it was easy to put together,

Otterly Merry Christmas

September 10, 2017

My Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn “Christmas Like No Otter” set arrived in the mail this weekend. I couldn’t wait to play with it. Here is the first card I made with this set.

006 (3)

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began by stamping all of the images on white card stock. I used Prismacolor pencils to color everything in. Then, I fussy cut everything out. I cut right on the stamped line for everything except the seaweed. I painted the edges of black to hide any cutting errors.

Next, I created a dark brown card base. I used white pigment ink to stamp a wood grain pattern on the card base. While that was drying, I die cut three stitched circles for three different shades of blue paper. I used the lightest blue shade as the sky. I used a scalloped border die to create waves on the other two blue circles. I layered all the circles together to create an ocean scene.

I adhered the seaweed around the circle like a wreath. I added the red bow at the bottom to complete the wreath look. I stamped the sentiment next. I used a mini action wobble spring to adhere the otters to the middle of the circle.

Lastly, I adhered the circles to the card base with foam tape. These otters are soooo cute; I can’t wait to make more cards with them.

Christmas Tags 3.1: Donut Peek

August 13, 2017

I love donut puns. So I had to make some Christmas tags using a donut pun.

36362682092_947339c0f9_o

Details

Size:  tags

Extra Details: I started with a full sheet of white card stock. I drew a line 2 inches from each long side. Then using a grey marker, a green glitter gel pen, and a pink gel pen, I created a plaid pattern. I then die cut the tag shape from the plaid paper. I made sure to line the bottom of the tag up with the open area to leave myself room for the sentiment. I trimmed a piece of grey card stock to about 1/8th of an inch and adhered it over the line at the bottom of the tag. I added the sentiment in grey ink.

Then, I started working on the donuts. I white heat embossed the donuts on dark brown card stock. I fussy cut them out, leaving a small border. I stamped the donuts on some white card stock with Barely Beige ink. I fussy cut out just the frosting on the line this time. I went over the sprinkles with the same gel pens I used to create the plaid paper. To give the frosting a shiny appearance, I smooshed the pieces in Versa Mark ink and clear embossed the whole thing. Then I adhered the frosting to the brown donuts. I used foam tape to adhere the donuts to the tags.

I stamped, fussy cut, and colored some holly leaves to add to the donuts. I think they add just the right touch.

To finish the tags, I die cute some plain white tags. I stamped “to”, “from”, and a donut in grey ink on them. Lastly, I adhered the plaid tag to the plain tag and added some grey reinforces.

Wild Christmas Tags

April 5, 2017

The newest Simon Says Stamp products in my craft room are from the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit. I love the stamp set and ink colors, but I wasn’t sure what to do with the kraft tags. I really only use tags at Christmas time; and usually I make my own white tags. In the end, I did have fun creating this tags and I already know which holiday gifts they will be going on.

Details

Size:  tags

Extra Details: I started by stamping and coloring my animal and hat images. This was the first time I used the penguin from this stamp set.   I used colored pencils to color everything. After fussy cutting everything out, I painted the edges with a black marker.

For the tags, I started by ink blending some white pigment ink in the center area of each tag. Then I stamped the falling snow in the background with the same white pigment ink.

While the ink was drying, I created the snowy hills. I die cut a stitched hillside for and trimmed it down to the size of the tag. I adhered the hills to the tags and stamped the sentiments in black ink.

I adhered the hats to the critters with glue dots. I adhered the critters to the cards with double sided tape. To finish the tags, I added some red and white twines form my stash.
