Easter Gift Tags

Hey there crafty friends!

Hope you all are doing well and practicing your social distancing. To make the best of this time at home, I’ve been spending a lot of time in my craft room making projects. I’ve gotten several projects completed and I’m now sharing my designs with all of you.

Today I am showcasing these cute Easter tags using the adorable Spellbinder’s die, “Truckin’ Through the Seasons.” I’ve showcased this die once before with some cards I made several months back. Now today, this little guy is making a second debut on my blog with my Easter themed gift tags.

I love the versatility of this die. This little truck is perfect for just about any holiday and occasion. Although the die set does not come with accessories for Easter, you can still create this theme using dies from your stash. I’m using the mini carrots from the Lawn Fawn Garden Stitched Border die to create the Easter theme. The sentiment comes from the Some Bunny stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and the entire truck image is popped up on foam tape and placed onto of my favorite Stitched Scalloped Tag from Papertrey Ink.

I simply adore how these tags turned out. Here’s the perfect Easter tag to tie onto a bag of treats and gift to a friend or family member.

Thank you all for joining me today. I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project share. Until next time… Happy Crafting!

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! 

Today I am back on the Poppystamps blog showcasing my last Valentine’s Day card for 2020. Today’s card features the Confetti Heart Plate and the Love Outline die from our January release.

Poppystamps 2.14.1.2

If you’re in need of quick last minute Valentine’s Day card for someone, you can easily put together this cutie in no time flat.  To get started, die cut the Confetti heart plate from a piece of white cardstock. This die is perfectly sized to 4.25 x 5.5 inches, which the same size of an A2 card.

Now cut a strip of black cardstock to 1.75 x 4.25 inch strip with your paper trimmer. Then using the newly released Love outline die to cut the sentiment outline from a scrap piece of white cardstock and the sentiment layer with a piece of red cardstock. Next layer the red love sentiment on top of the white outline and secure the two pieces together with your favorite liquid or tape runner adhesive.  

Next grab a sheet of red and white polk a dot patterned paper and cut it to A2 size. I’m using a piece of red polka dot paper from the Memory Box Dashing Stripes and Dots 6×6 paper pad. Cut your patterned paper to 4.25 x5.5 inches and adhere it to your card base. Then place the Heart plate die cut piece on top of your patterned paper. Isn’t this stunning! Instant decorative background with no ink blending involved.

Adhere the two toned love sentiment on top of your back cardstock strip. Pop up your sentiment strip onto your confetti heart plate with some 3M foam tape. 

Viola, your card is done! Wasn’t that quick and easy.

Love Stitch Circle Shaker

Hey there crafty friends, 

Today I am featured on the Poppystamps blog sharing a shaker card tutorial using the Love Stitch Circle Frame die and the Memory Box Drifting Hearts stencil. This card is perfect for Valentine’s Day or any occasion for which you want to express your love.

To get started take a piece of white cardstock measuring 5.7 inches tall x 4.5 inches wide and sponge on some Spun Sugar Distress oxide ink with your ink blending tool.  

Poppystamps 2.13.20.1

Next place the Memory Box stencil, Drifting Hearts on top of your Spun Sugar cardstock panel and sponge the heart images onto your paper using Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Barn Door distress inks. Add each of the colors in order from lightest to darkest making sure to blend each of the colors together to avoid any harsh lines.   

Poppystamps 2.13.20.2

Now take your Double Stitched Rectangle Frame die and die cut a frame and inner panel from your heart stencil cardstock. The Double Stitched Rectangle frame will create the perfect A2 size card front panel. 

Poppystamps 2.13.20.3

Next die cut the Love Stitch Circle Frame once from a scrap piece of red cardstock and then again from a scrap piece of white cardstock. Snip away the love sentiment from the red scalloped circle frame, leaving just the frame behind. Adhere the red scalloped frame onto the white Love Stitch Circle Frame to create a two toned effect. 



Next using a circle die or punch from you stash, cut a 3 inch circle from a piece of clear acetate. Adhere the acetate to the back of the two toned frame using some strong adhesive. I used 1/8th inch score tape.

With some 3M foam tape, cut a thin strip of adhesive foam long enough to go the entire perimeter of your scallop frame. Adhere your foam tape to back of your scalloped circle frame. Remember to double up on the adhesive so that there is enough clearance for your shaker bits to shake. Brush a bit of your embossing buddy on the inside of your adhesive foam to prevent the shaker bits from sticking to the sides. Now add your sequence or shaker bits. I am using Sprinkletz sweetheart embellishments. 

Remove the backing tape from the foam adhesive and add your stenciled card front to the shaker frame. Add your shaker card front panel onto an A2 side folding cardbase and your shaker card is now done!

Creep It Real

Happy Halloween Everyone! 

To celebrate the holiday, I am showcasing a Halloween card made with the Spellcaster Witch and Magical Cauldron dies that were made with Stamps and Dies from the Poppystamps September release. I just love the little spooky witch die and how she coordinates with the cauldron to appear as though she is making spooky witches brew!

The background of today’s card was made using my distress oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed. I used these colors to mimic the popular Pastel Halloween theme that I love so much. I sprinkled some water onto the background piece to create that beautiful oxidation, then dried my cardstock with a piece of paper towel. Next, I die cut the witch, cauldron and frame using some black cardstock from my stash. I also die cut the cauldrom from my inked background piece to emboss the steam from the cauldron onto the paper.

I then adhered the die cut witch and the black cauldron to the colored cardstock piece with some foam tape. Next I used my wink of stella glitter pen on the witch to give the witch a bit of sparkle.

I  then stamped the sentiment, Creep It Real, from the Halloween Fun stamp set onto a piece of white cardstock in black Versafine ink. I created some banner tails on the white cardstock, then adhered the piece onto my card front with some foam tape.

I just love the color combination of this card and how quick and easy it all came together. I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Have a great day and Happy Halloween! 

Poppystamps Holiday Blog Blitz

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are enjoying your day. Today I am sharing a project I made for the Poppystamps Holiday and Winter Blog Blitz. On September 1, 2019, I became an now official member of the Poppystamps design team. I am so excited to be amongst these talented ladies creating projects for the awesome stamps and dies from Poppystamps.

Today’s project  is a quick and easy tag showcasing items from the Poppystamps September release. For those of you who like to get a jump start on Christmas, this clean and simple tag can easily be massed produced for your Holiday gift packaging.

To get started, you will need the second to largest tag frame from the Double Stitch Tag Frames along with our new Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup and Magical Cauldron dies. First I die cut the Tag and frame from a piece of Kraft card stock using my Gemni Junior die cutting machine. With the tag die cut, I placed the cauldron die in the center of the cards stock ensuring the steam was placed near the top of the tag. I then die cut cauldron from the tag.  

Next I  took the Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup die and cut the cup twice; once from a white piece of card stock and then again from a chocolate piece of card stock. With some scissors I cut the warm wishes sentiment from each of the cups.  With my distress ink blending tool, I color the white cup die cut with some candied apple distress oxide ink and colored the white warm wishes sentiment with mowed lawn distress oxide ink. 

Next I adhered the green colored sentiment onto my candied colored cup with some 3M foam tape. I then outlined the  sentiment with my black micron pen to make the sentiment pop. To assemble the tag, I placed the tag frame and tag onto a piece of white card stock with some liquid glue and trimmed the edges with my scissors. 

I then adhered the cup onto the tag right over the die cut caldron with some 3M foam tape. Don’t you just love how the  cup looks as though it has steam coming from it. Next I took the brown warm wishes die cut and placed that onto of the tag just above the cup with some foam tape. To embellish the cup with the appearance of whip cream, I took my Marvy snow marker and brushed some white ink over the sentiment.  Then I heated the ink with my heat gun to make it puff up like whip cream

For the finishing touches on the tag, I whole punched a circle at the top of the tag and added some lime green ribbon and christmas theme twine from my stash. I really liked how this tag turned out and how quickly it all came together. 

Thanks for joining me today for this quick and easy Christmas tag. I hope you were inspired to create one or two for yourself.
