Pretty Pink Posh 25 Days of Christmas Tags (Video)

Hi everyone, today I'm helping Pretty Pink Posh participate in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags by Tracey McNeely. For these tags, I'll be using the new Winter Woodland stamp set along with a few other stamp sets and the Window Frames dies to create some shaker tags.


To start off my tags today I used the Window Frames dies and cut them both out nested together four times from some light grey cardstock. I then used the largest die and cut out twelve white bases and also four pieces of acetate. I adhered the acetate to the back of the light grey pieces, two each of the white bases together, so I would have a nice back and front and for the last of the white ones, I cut little snow banks. 


Next, I ink blended some Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress Ink onto the white pieces to create a nice background for my tags. I then splattered some water on top to give a little water splotch effect. I then adhered my snow banks to the bottom of them also. For my sentiment I used the Everyday Greetings stamp set to stamp 'For You' onto each of the top of the tags with black ink. Before assembling my tags, I punched a small hole at the top of each of the tags for the twine to be threaded through. I then added a layer of foam tape behind the grey frames and then added some Starry Night Sequin Mix on top of my tag base and also some Sparkling Clear Snowflakes. I then removed the backers of foam tape and adhered them onto my bases. 


Next I used the Winter Wonderland, Reindeer Games and Winter Woodland stamp sets and stamped and coloured a few images from each. I also coloured a ton of Santa hats from Reindeer Games as I love adding Santa hats to all critters! Once I finished colouring with Copic Markers I die cut them all out and adhered them flat onto the front of my tags. For a finishing touch I added some green twine through the holes of my tags and finished them off with a red bow. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you were inspired to make some shaker tags!

Craftie Cafe - Merry Christmas (Video)

Hi everyone, today I’m back with a card for Craftie Café using the new WPlus9 Christmas Rose Bouquet and My Favorite Things Snow Globe Sentiements set. I’ll also be using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to colour in my large bouquet today also.


To begin, I stamped my large bouquet image from the Christmas Rose Bouquet stamp set onto some Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock with black ink, then clear heat embossed over the image also. To colour in my image in, I used various colours of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush. I scribble the colour where I want it to be darkest, then I pull that colour out with a water brush. Once I coloured my entire image, I used the coordinating dies to cut it out. Next, I used some Distress Inks to ink blend onto another piece of watercolour cardstock. I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean to ink blend into the centre of the cardstock, then I used a paintbrush with some water to move the colour around. Then used a paper towel to mop up the edges to create a light blue watercolour base for my flower to be adhered over the top of.


I used foam tape to adhere down my flower to the base, then took the Snow Globe Sentiments set from My Favorite Things to white heat emboss the simple Merry Christmas sentiment onto some black cardstock. I cut it down into a strip and adhered it with foam tape also. To finish off I adhered my panel onto a piece of black and white striped patterned paper and then onto a card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I’ll catch you next time.
