Thankful Gift Box

Hi everyone! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away?!?! Where has the time went to??? I thought I would share a little gift box I created for ClearSnap.


I carefully took a part and emboss each section of the box with the Wood Grain Embossing Folder. Next, I loaded three Art Daubers with the following inks: Candies Yam, Red Barn and Pumpkin Spice Inks and lightly rub in random spots to give a wood grain texture on the box. Once I got the desired wood grain effect that I wanted I put the box back together.


I inked a glass tray with Flagstone and Coconut Inks and add water to each color. I loaded a paint brush with Flagstone Ink mix and splatter each side of the box. Clean brush and load Coconut Ink mix and splatter each side. I fussy cut a doily from the DIY Shop Paper Collection and adhere to the top of the box.


I cut from the Crinoline fabric flowers using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and lightly ink the center of each flower with Canary Ink.


I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower. Next I laid each flower diecut on top of each other and pinched the center of all the flowers and shape.

I inked the feather stamp from the Thankful Stamp Set with Wicked Back Ink and stamp onto a piece of patterned cardstock. I did this twice and fussy cut each feather.
Next, I inked and stamped in Leather Ink the "Thankful" sentiment and two leaf sprigs. I also inked the edges of the sentiment with Butter Chalk Ink and fussy cut the leaf sprigs out and inked another leaf sprig with Clear Top Boss Embossing Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder, set with a heat tool and fussy cut image out.



I glued the feathers, leaf sprigs and several loops of cording and thread to the upper corner of the box. I added the "Thankful" sentiment to the lid and finish off with flowers and sequins. 


I would like to also submit this project for the following challenge:

Lets Celebrate! Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a card I created for Eileen's birthday that was a couple of weeks ago! 


I started by cutting a Ornate, Flip-its #2 Card Diecut (retired) from double sided patterned card. 


On the back of the card I adhered to strips of patterned cardstock and printed from my computer the sentiments "It's Your Birthday!" and "Lets Celebrate". I cut out the "It's Your Birthday!" sentiment and glued to the strip.


From a piece of vellum I cut the Spellbinders Beaded Circles Diecut (retired but found a few on Amazon) and adhered to the flip part of the card along with two strips of patterned cardstock.


The digital image of the vintage women I purchased from Lisa's Altered Art which you can find HERE. I printed and fussy cut the image of the women with one of the party hat out and adhered to the card. 


I added Stickles to the collars and sleeves of each of the women's outfits and let dry.


I cut from various patterned cardstock a flower and leaf sprig from the Flower and Leaves Journaling Cards Diecuts, inked the edges of the flower with gold ink and covered the leaf sprig completely with Stickles (let dry first) and adhere both to the corner of the card.


I added the sequin, Glossy Dot and thread to the flower and finished by gluing the sentiment to the bottom of the card. My card got to Eileen a "little late" but that was ok because she got to celebrate her birthday just a little bit longer. 😉 As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

For You Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I want to share a quick gift card holder I created.


I started by folding a piece of 6"x12" patterned cardstock in half and place slightly below the cut line of the House/Pocket Stitchlit and ran through the diecut machine. I adhered each side together to create a pocket.


I cut two roofs, two windows, one half window, one door and one chimney diecuts from patterned cardstock. I backed all windows with vellum before adhering to the house/pocket stitch lit  I also adhere roof to the top of the diecut. Before adding the door cut another piece of cardstock slightly larger than the door and adhere behind the door before adding to the house/pocket. Also add a sequin and a glossy dot to the door.


I cut another house/pocket but cut sides down so it will fit into the pocket. I adhered the chimney diecut to the pull out and cut and add a patterned cardstock mat to pull out. 


Next I cut a Book Plate and Book Plate Frame Diecuts from patterned cardstock and adhered the frame on top of the book plate. I snapped together the words "For" and "You" from the Max Stamp Pegz Letter Set and inked with Leather Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut out each letter and adhere to the book plate.


I inked a glass tray with ColorBox Blends Frog Ink and added water. I laid one leaf sprig  from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecut. and removed and let dry.


I inked the leaf sprig completely with Top Boss Clear Embossing Pad and applied Opalescent Embossing Powder to the whole leaf sprig and set with heat tool.


I punched two different size circles from a piece of patterned cardstock and adhere the smaller circle on top of the larger circle. I cut two medium flowers and one small flower from Crinoline fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts. I applied a dot of adhesive in the center of both medium flowers and placed one of the flowers on top of the other flower and pinched both flowers in the center and shape.


I inked the glass tray with  Pink Chalk Ink, add water and cover the small flower with ink mixture. Once dry I added a mini gem to the center of the flower and adhere to the center of the larger flower and glued the flower and leaf sprig to the circle tag. I created a bow with cording and adhere underneath the flower on the circle tag. I punched a hole at the end of the book plate, circle punch and the top of the house pocket and added cording to the book plate and circle and tie to the top of the of the house pocket.


The last step to completing the gift card holder I cut two Bookmark Diecuts from patterned cardstock, put together according to directions  and added to pull out. This will hold the gift card in place. There you have it! You can change the theme of the gift card holder to a gingerbread house, beach house, haunted house, etc. You are only limited by your imagination. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

ClearSnap: Be Fearless Tag

Hi everyone! I'm back with a very quick inspirational tag I created! 
I started by inking a glass tray with Jade Premium Ink, adding water and placing Tag  in ink mixture. Once I had the desired effect I wanted I removed and let dry. I placed the Printer's Ornament Embossing Folder on both ends of the tag and run through the diecut machine. I inked the Be Fearless Rubber Stamp with Atmosphere Premium Ink and stamped the center of the tag.


I adhered grey lace on either side of the sentiment and add flat back pearls along the top of both pieces of lace. I punched a butterfly from patterned cardstock and adhere to the lace and added one flat back pearl to the center of the butterfly. I cut a 6 inch piece of seaming binding and tie to the top of the tag.
As always you have any questions about this project please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Fall Tea Cup

Hi everyone and Happy November! I want to share an Autumn themed tea cup I created for ClearSnap! 


I started by printing out a Tea Cup Printable from Layers of Color which is found on Pinterest. I printed on burnt orange cardstock and fussy cut tea cup and saucer images out and adhered all pieces together, including a paper doily that I added to the sauce before adhering to the cup. I also glued a small wadded piece of tissue paper to the bottom of the tea cup.


I cut Millinery Leaves Diecuts from white cardstock and inked the glass tray with the following ColorBox Blends Inks: Melon, Frog, Golden, Sunshine and Nutmeg. I added water to each ink and applied the ink mixture randomly to each leaf diecut.


While the leaves were still a little damp I shaped with my hand and let dry.


I adhered lace around the top of the tea cup and added dry moss inside the cup.


Once the leaves where dry I shaped and inked the edges of each leaf with Top Boss Embossing Powder Stamp Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder to each of leaf diecut and set with a heat tool. I completed the same steps for each Golden Sparkle and Opalescent Embossing Powders as I did the Copper Embossing Powder.


I adhered the leaves inside tea cup along with mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. I finished by placing tulle and cording as a filler between mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. Now are you ready to create one for yourself? 😀 As always if you have any question please let me know.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Moments Tag

Hi everyone! It's been a busy week for me! I meant to post this project a lot sooner but I've been working on butcher block counter tops getting them ready to install...I can't wait to get this kitchen finished!!! Anyway, I really love how this tag came together...the colors, the stamps, diecuts, everything!


I started by inking a glass tray with Petal Point: Enchantment-Heliotrope and Peony Inks and Cat's Eye Lime Pigment Ink, add water and place tag in watered down ink. Once desired effect is achieved remove and let dry. Next I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Alabaster ink and stamped the tag. I cleaned the molding mat and ink with Guacamole ink and stamp the tag again. I placed the Cameo Frame Embossing Folder midway of the tag and run through diecut machine. I lightly inked over the embossed image lightly with Warm Violet and Wisteria Chalk Ink.


I cut a vellum label from the Label Diecut and adhere in the center of the embossed image on the tag. Next I cut one strip of cardstock and adhere in the center of the vellum and embossed image.


I applied the Adhesive Sheet to the back of a purple and green piece of cardstock. Place the Moments Die with purple cardstock, Floral Arch Die with green cardstock and Flower Die with white cardstock diecuts on the cutting pad and run through the diecutting machine. Peel the backing off of the moments and floral arch and place on the tag.


Before adhering the flower diecut to the tag, shape and add a couple of loops of thread to the back and glue to the floral arch. I finished off by adding a Glossy Dot to the center of the flower and tie lace to the top of the tag. As Always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Eileen Hull: A Little Boo Mini Album

Hi everyone! I'm back today sharing this little mini Halloween album I created for Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team! 


I started by flattening and cutting a paper towel roll 5 1/2" in length.


Next I cut one side open and inked the outside and inside of the "spine" with the Purple Chalk Ink from the ColorBox Paintbox Mercantile Chalk.


I adhered Kraft Halloween Cardstock to the front and inside covers of the mini album.


I placed the Scalloped Border Diecut onto the Base Tray (retired) but you can use a Movers and Shapers Shuttle to hold the diecut in place. I placed the closed mini album cover on top of the Scalloped Border Diecut and ran through the diecutting machine.


I gather some scraps of Halloween cardstock from my stash and cut and folded to fit album.


I cut from the following diecuts: Bookplate, Hinges and Label, Bookmark, Tags and PocketCredit Card Sleeve and Tags and Banners and Pennants Diecuts tags, pockets and banners to decorate the pages and the doily. I also added printables and bits of patterned cardstock to the pockets too.


The other side of the pages I added stickers and a bat diecut from my stash.


The cover I adhered a diecut from my stash of extra cut outs.  The little girl I had printed out several of her in different sizes for a past project and I thought she would make a cute addition to the cover. I did cut around her arm so I could slip the jack-o-lateen diecut underneath it. I added googly eyes to the pumpkin and bits of thread. I cut one of the pennants off the banner diecut and created a little hat for the little girl image. I added a Bookplate Diecut with "BOO" stickers and two mini black gems to the bottom of the cover. I took a part a binder clip and added an Owl Charm, some fiber and clipped to the album cover and  finished off with sequin randomly placed. 



I gathered all the pages and stitched inside the album cover.


I couldn't help myself  but I added more tags and embellishments to the pages.


I cut tags from the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags along with some bits of patterned cardstock, punched a hole in the top of each and put all together with a jack-o-lantern brad and then paperclip to the top of one of the pages. I'm now ready to add mini photos  and journaling of the grand babies.


Be sure to hop on over to hop on over to Eileen Hull's blog to see what the rest of the Inspiration Team has been up to! You can find the latest blog post HERE. As always if you have any questions please let me know.
