Craft Online - Christmas Tags (Video)


Hi friends, today I'm back for Craft Online and today I'll be making some Christmas Tags. I used the MFT Sweater Weather on Safari Stamp Set for the animals as well as the Lawn Fawn Simply Winter Sentiments. I also used some Tag Dies from Mama Elephant for the different sizes. 


I started off with stamping out my images and colouring them in with Copic Markers. I used the colours from the patterned paper that I was going to use as inspiration for the markers I chose. Once they were coloured in I cut them out. 

(Copic Markers Used: R81, R83, R85, R89 / B91, B93, B95, B97 / BG90, BG93, BG97, BG99 / BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78 / E95, E97, E99, E19 / YR20, YR21, YR23, YR27 / R32, R35, R37, R39 / W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7 / E41, E42, E43, E44 / Y21, Y23, Y26, YR24 / R000, R00, R30)

While I was die cutting, I also cut out four tags from the patterned paper as well as vellum tags and the reinforcers from white as well. 


I adhered the critters to each of the vellum tags and then the vellum tags onto the patterned paper bases. I also punched holes at the top and adhered the reinforcers too. 


Lastly I used the Simply Winter Sentiments set from Lawn Fawn and used the 'From Me To You' sentiment and white heat embossed it on black cardstock. I adhered them onto my tags and then threaded through some grey twine at the top. 


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll see you next time.

25 Days of Christmas Tags: Birch Press Design


Hello crafty friends, today I'm here again to participate in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. Today's inspiration comes from Birch Press Design.


I used the Mini Grandiose Bevel Layering Set as well as the Joy Honey Script Dies to create these Christmas tags today. 


I cut out the layers of the die set with different colours of cardstock, and adhered them together in sets that I thought looked nice together. 

(Cardstock Used: Pencil Eraser, No. 2 Pencil, Rainforest, Moonstone, Raspberry - Lawn Fawn / Mint - Simon Says Stamp)


I then adhered them onto a piece of cream cardstock and cut the tops to look like tags. I punched a hole and threaded through some twine in coordinating colours. 

I then used the Joy Honey Script Dies and cut it from white and vellum cardstock. I adhered them together and adhered them to the tags using foam tape.

For today's tags I used the Yeti or Not Stamp Set to create these adorable little tags.

25 Days of Christmas Tags: Pretty Pink Posh


Hello crafty friends, today I'm here again to participate in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. Today's inspiration comes from Pretty Pink Posh

For my tags today I used the Winter Wreath Stamp Set to create some simple wreath tags. I also used the Stacked Edges 1 Dies as well for a place to stamp the sentiment. 


I started off with stamping out the wreaths and a few of the other pieces from Winter Wreath and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then cut them out. While I was die cutting I also cut two wavy borders from the Stacked Edges 1 Dies from Navy Cardstock. 

(Copic Markers Used: R14, R24, R27, R29 / YG01, YG03, YG23, YG17 / YR20, YR21, YR23. YR27 / BG93, BG96 / BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78)

I then made a small cluster of the individual images and adhered them at the top of the wreaths. I punched a hole and threaded through some twine. 


I white heat embossed the 'Christmas Greetings' sentiment from Winter Wreath into the centre of the wavy pieces. I then cut off the ends with some scissors to create the fishtail look. I adhered them on with foam tape on either side and my tags were finished.

Pretty Pink Posh October Product Release Blog Hop


Hi friends, today I'm participating in the Pretty Pink Posh October Product Release Blog Hop along with so many other designers and I'm so super duper excited to be here! This new release is filled with so many fun winter themed stamps and dies along with stencils and confetti.


There will be an opportunity to win four $25 gift certificates to the store (two for each day). That's a few opportunities, so don't forget to comment on each persons blog each day! Comments must be left by 11:59 PST on the 22th of October and then winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog.

Here are a list of all the participants for the first day. Be sure to check back tomorrow for another day filled with inspiration. 

For today's card I used the new Holiday Signs Stamp Set along with the Whimsical Christmas Stencil. 


I started off with stamping out my images and colouring them in with Copic Markers. I then cut them out. While I had my die cutting machine out I ran through the Whimsical Christmas Stencil with some rubber mats to emboss my card base. I also added white gel pen details to my images. 

(Copic Markers Used: E000, E00, E21, E02 / W1, W3, W5, W7 / Y11, Y13, Y15, Y19 / YR00, YR02, YR14, YR18 / BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49 / E41, E42, E43, E44 / R000, R00, R20 / BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49 / W00, W0, W1 / 0 / YG01, YG03, YG23, YG17 / R14, R24, R27, R46)



I cut down a piece of white cardstock to 3" wide and cut a snowy hill with some scissors. I adhered it onto the card base with foam tape. I then stamped the different sentiments onto each image, and I then adhered my images on top, too. 


I finished off my card with adhering some Merry Confetti Mix around my project. 

That finished up my card for today, thanks so much for stopping by. The next person on the hop is Wanda Guess so be sure to continue hopping. Don't forget to leave a comment and I'll see you all next time.

Craft Online - Life Is Good (Video)


Hi friends, today I'm back for Craft Online and I'll be using the Carta Bella Let's Travel line to create a super simple travel themed card for you all. I'm using just the 12x12 Sticker Set that comes in the 12x12 Paper Pack for my card today. 


I first created a grey card base from some light grey cardstock. I then peeled off the stickers I want to use and used the powder from an anti static powder tool to remove the stickiness. That allows me to move them around as much as I like. 


Once I found a spot for them all, I added foam tape onto the backs and adhered them into place. I used my scissors to cut off the excess. 


I then cut down a strip of black cardstock and added the 'Life is Good' sentiment on top using more foam. I then tied a hemp cord bow to the right hand side and that finished up my card for today. 


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll see you all next time.

Now all the details are out of the way, let's move onto the card I made for today. 
I used the new Santa Claus Lane Stamp Set along with Scenic Route for the lights. 


I started off with stamping out my images from both sets and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then cut them out. I used an exacto knife to cut around inside the fire place to create an opening, also. 

(Copic Markers Used: RV10, RV11, RV13, RV25 / RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99 / BV01, BV02, BV04, BV08 / B91, B93, B95, B97 / Y11, Y13, Y15, Y19 / E000, E00, E21, E02 / W00, W0 / E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, E59 / YG01, YG23, YG25, YG17 / R14, R24, R27, R89 / W1, W3, W5, W7 / 0)


I took a couple papers from both the Subtle Grey Tones Paper Pad and the Very Merry Paper Pad and cut out a 4" x 5 1/2" piece and also a couple of 1/2" strips of the colourful paper too. I adhered them together using tape adhesive at the top and bottom of the panel. I then used the 'Wishing You A Holly Jolly Christmas' sentiment from Santa Claus Lane and stamped it down directly onto the bottom of my panel using a MISTI. 


I then added white details using a gel pen onto my images and adhered them into place using foam tape. I also added the little Santa inside of the fireplace, which I thought was a cute detail. 

That finished up my card for today, I hope you enjoyed. All of the products are linked down below. Remember they're not available until the 27th of September and are only for pre-order from today.

Craft Online - Happy Father's Day (Video)

Hi friends, today I'm back with a Father's Day for Craft Online. I used the Poppy Crafts Garden Tool Set Dies to create a fun embossed background. 


I started off with a white piece of cardstock and adhered two grey stripes over the top. I then laid out my dies over the panel and ran it through my die cutting machine on some rubber mats so they emboss and don't cut. 


I then die cut the 'Happy Father's Day' Die from black and dark grey cardstock, adhered them together creating a drop shadow and adhered them onto my card using foam tape. 


I finished off by adding the apostrophe and dot of the exclamation point and that finished off my card for today. 


Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my 10 minute simple Father's Day Card. See you next time!
