Misted medallion tag

Hello there, and happy Tuesday. Today I´m stopping by to share a Christmas present tag with a special centerpiece.

I got this medaillion from my crafty friend Tina and I´ve been saving it for a special occation. I created this tag with the embossed blue paper that was in the Tonic Craft Kit No. 6.

I started by die cutting the paper with the Tonic Mixed Scalloped and Straight Edge Rectangle Layering Die Set using only the straight edge dies with the blue paper. For the white cardstock piece is changed to the scalloped edged die cut die.

I then just decorated the tag with some older product from my stash, like the button, the twine and the border sticker. i used the medallion from Tina as my centerpiece, misting it with Tattered Angels Icicle Blue spray ink (see the video here).

For finishing touches I added some Ruby Slippers Nuvo Drops here and there.

This present tag will go together with the card I made previously or I can use them separately. That´s it for today, hope to see you tomorrow when I share another Christmas Card Wednesday card.

Until then, happy crafting,

TAGplorations December challenge reveal

Hello lovelies, can you believe it´s already December!!! And this means it´s time for this years last TAGplorations challenge reveal. In December you are asked to create a project featuring a tag around the theme „All About Christmas„.

As an optional element use GLITTER :).

Here is my take for the reveal:

This time I used red cardstock as my starting point, then added some Nuvo mousse thru a stencil and added die cut elements on top. And lots of glitter :).

And now to the steps:

* Die cut the nesting manila tag from red cardstock with the die cut die
* Place the Dots all Over stencil on top of the tag and apply Mother Of Pearl Nuvo Mousse thru the stencil onto the tag with a palette knife. Let dry.
* Die cut the winter landscape with the Stitched Winter Landscape die from Sugar Crystal glitter cardstock and cut into two, layer on top of each other and adhere on place
* Add a strip of washi tape for decoration, die cut the Warm Winter Wishes phrase from red cardstock and adhere on place
* Add some silver glitter swirls on top of the chimney for additional detail, finish off with a ribbon and the tag is ready

Now it´s again your turn to play along – just remember to play by the rules:

  • You can link up as many projects as you want (1 project per blog post!!!)
  • Projects can be anything but they must feature a TAG
  • Non-STAMPlorations products are allowed
  • To qualify for the prize, you must display the challenge graphic and link back to the challenge post (blogs only!!)
  • Prizes: $15 Giftcard for the winner and $5 Giftcard to three randomly picked participants

Have fun playing,

December Mixed Media challenge reveal

Hello everyone and happy 2nd of December! Its time for the very last STAMPlorations mixed media challenge reveal in 2018.

This time I created a fun tag:

  Believe it or not, I started off with a piece of plain white cardstock :)!

Then I applied some Barn Door Distress ink with a blending brush I bought from Søstrene Grene recently. This brush is actually a make-up brush, but it works so well with inks and stencils too :)…

After that I took the Plaid Maker ARTplorations stencil and placed it on top of the red inked tag. I applied Black Soot Distress Ink with the brush thru the stencil onto the tag. First vertically,

..and then horizontally and I had a gorgeous plaid patterned background as a result. I love how this turned out. The plaid maker stencil is really so much fun to create such backgrounds with!

To highlight the pattern a little more, I took a metal ruler and a white gel pen and drew some white lines on top of the widest black stripes. This gives it even a more genuine plaid pattern look.

Finally, I die cut a white circle from a Pearl Ripple patterned paper (Tonic Studios) to place my sentiment on. The die cut sentiment is by STAMPlorations and was die cut from Godl Dust paper by Tonic Studios. I love the gold glitter paper, it adds such a nice festive touch to any project!

For finishing touches I added a golden ribbon and some blue resin stars onto the tag. I can see this tag hanging on a present that has been wrapped in kraft/brown packaging paper. It will work so well and be a great eye catcher on the present 🙂 … Now´s again your turn! Remember to read the rules and play by them to be eligble for the prizes! Hope to see your projects at STAMPlorations blog!!!

25 Days of Christmas Tags – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome to  the 8th annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags event organized by Tracey McNeely!!! Today marks day 15 of 25 days of Christmas tags and it´s time for the STAMPlorations girls to share their tags.

If you aren´t familiar with this event, you definitely should check the line-up of the amazing companies and their design teams who joined this year – there is sooo much inspiration available, so don´t miss this one!!! Today is day 15, so go to Tracey´s blog to see all the previous posts too – and there are also prizes to be won *wink*.

Now to my project for this year – let me start with the steps:

I again created a shaker card for this years post. I love making them :). Here, by the way, is my last years project, just in case you want to see the video to how to build up a shaker card really easy. But let me continue with the steps. First I chose two sizes of the STAMPlorations Stitched Tags Nesting Dies and die cut one base piece (solid) and several pieces to create the window/frame from white cardstock.

Then I adhered all the window pieces together, added some super strong adhesive tape and a acetate piece to build the window.

Next I inked the top piece and the solid tag piece with Bundled Sage and Salty Ocean Distress Ink tones and added a heat embossed Christmas sentiment into the middle of the solid tag. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations – from their Typografia Christmas series and called: Merry Little Christmas. I stamped the sentiment to the background with embossing ink, then applied golden embossing powder and heat set it with a heat gun. There are also very small water droplets on the background, created with the water tank brush.

Before I adhered the bottom and the top parts together, I filled the frame with various Nuvo sequins, stars and circles. Here are some detail photos of the finished tag.

I really love the Salty Ocean ink tone so very much! I think I used blue last year too ;-).

Now for the blog hop details:

TAGplorations December challenge REMINDER

Hi there, everyone! Today I´d like to share another TAGplorations December challenge project with you. With this project I´d like to remind you to join our monthly challenge over at the STAMPlorations blog. This one is all about tags and this months challenge is „All about Christmas“.

Here is my second project for this months challenge reveal:

For this tag I first inked the blue cardstock with a Distress Ink blue tone that is slightly darker than the background. Then I used a white gel pen to draw around the inked stencil image. This way the pattern stands out better from the same toned background and makes it look more interesting. I had already punched the snowflakes from the paper, so I just applied a double sided adhesive underneath and then added some Silk Microfine Glitter on top. It sticks to the surface and creates lovely, shimmery snowflakes as a centerpieces to the tag.

After that I just needed to add some faux stitching, a darker cardstock piece onto the background and some half pearls for decoration. The sentiment  in the middle is a leftover piece from a project I did for Canvas Corp – it actually is a piece from the paper collection name I just fussy cut to work as a sentiment for this particular tag.

Finally I just added a strip of ribbon on top and this tag was all done. This will make yet another nice present tag for my Christmas presents this year. Now is your turn, if you haven´t played along with us already, here is where you will find all the details about the challenge (also read the rules over here).

See you at TAGplorations,
