ClearSnap: Peace, Joy and Love Tag

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great New Year's Day! I'm back with a tag I had originally created for Christmas but I figured it could pass as a wintery tag too.



I started by inking a glass tray with Fruit Punch Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, adding water to ink and placing the tag into the ink mixture. Once the Tag is completely covered with ink I removed and let dry. I inked the Swirls Molding Mat with Peony Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Ink Pad and randomly stamped the tag with the Swirls Molding Mat. I cleaned the molding mat and inked with the Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Ink Pad and randomly stamp the tag.



I placed the Snowflake Stamp from the Cookies Clear Stamps onto the Acrylic Block and ink with Clear Top Boss Embossing Stamp and stamp the snowflake several times onto the tag. Add Opalescent Embossing Powder and set with a heat tool. I stamped more Snowflakes with Clear Top Embossing Pad and add White Embossing Powder and set with a Heat Tool.


I placed the words "Peace", "Joy" and "Love" from the Cookie Clear Stamp Set onto an acrylic block and inked with Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Ink Pad. Next I stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock, cut out and edges each word with Mint Ink.
I placed the amp stamp onto the acrylic block, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink, stamped onto a piece of cardstock and fussy cut the amp stamped image out.


I adhered the "Peace", "Joy", "Love" and amp images onto the tag and added sequins to the centers of each of the white embossed snowflakes. As always if you have questions please let me know.


I cut three 8 inch pieces of white and aqua lace and aqua cording and tied off all pieces at the top of the tag with white twine I glued a button to the lace and cording.


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

ClearSnap: Pink Holly Memo Holder

Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I have been extremely busy and didn't get to share this memo holder I created as a gift idea for Christmas. You could change the colors and embellishments for a birthday or as an office anniversary gift.


I started by placing Mat Board on top of Bag, Caddy Diecut and put between the two plates and run through the Diecut MachineI inked a glass tray with Fruit Punch Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, add water and watercolored the front and back of the box and backing of the diecuts and let dry.


I inked a Color Blender with Alabaster Chalk Ink from the Mercantile Paintbox Chalk Ink Set and placed the Lattice Art Screen on top of the backing diecut and apply the Alabaster Chalk Ink. I again applied Alabaster Chalk Ink to the Color Blender and place the Lattice Art Screen on top of the box diecut and applied to the art screen. I put the Bag/Caddy together according to directions on the packaging and cut one backing from patterned cardstock using the Bag/Caddy Diecut and adhere to the back of the completed Bag/Caddy.


I placed a holly stamp from the Cookies Clear Stamps Set onto an Acrylic Block and inked with Wicked Black Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of patterned green cardstock. I fussy cut the holly image out and shaped.


I wrapped red twine around the Bag/Caddy three times and adhered into place. Next I looped several mint and aqua threads together and adhere to the back of the holly before adding to the Bag/Caddy. I added three red gems to the holly. I tied red twine around 3"x3" notepad or a set of sticky notes would work too. I finished off by adding a ink pen along with the notepad to the Bag/Caddy.


As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.


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

Santa Pockets

Hi everyone! I'm back with some quick projects I created for a swap I was in on Instagram. Florence aka LiveLifeandCreate hosted this swap and we were supposed to send a Christmas card, something flat worth around $3 and decorate the envelope for three partners. Well, I didn't make anything flat as you can see.😁


I decided I would make these Flower Pockets by Eileen Hull. Instead of using Mat Board (which I am running low on) I used chipboard which I covered with Adhesive Sheets before adding the cardstock and running through the Diecut Machine.


I used The Paper Studio Jingle all the Way Paper Pad to cover the pockets. I cut the Heart and Soul Flower Dies from Crinoline, layered and added a button and brad before adhering to the to the corner of the pocket. I added gold cording, a mini pinecone and Holiday Greens Dies (pine needles and holly) underneath the flower.


The second pocket I created as the first one but I used a store bought paper flower, a gem with button and a couple of berries from a greenery spray. For both pockets I added packages washi tape, a mini Christmas ornament and a Christmas card.


If you have any questions about these projects please let me know and I would like to also submit these for the following challenge:

Mom's Little Book of Recipes

Hi everyone! Can you believe Christmas Day is only a week away? If you are still searching for gift ideas I would like to share a recipe book I created!


I started by placing  Mat Board on top of the Passport Diecut and place between two plate and run through Diecut Machine. I cut the front/back cover twice and cut a total of four covers from patterned cardstock and adhered those to the front and inside covers. Next I loaded an Art Dauber with Cattail Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and inked the spine of recipe book and let dry. I adhered the front and back covers to the spine.



I placed the following stamps from the Cookies Clear Stamp Set onto an acrylic block: Mixing Bowl (stamp twice), Wooden Spoon (stamp twice) and ink with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink, stamped onto various patterned cardstock and fussy cut all  images out. I placed the"Merry", Cookies, and Swirl Cookie onto an acrylic block. Ink the "M" (stamp twice), "S" (stamp once) and Swirl Cookie with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink onto patterned cardstock and fussy cut both "M"s, "S" and Swirl Cookie out.


I printed from the computer "Little Book of Recipes" and cut each word and ink edges with Scuba Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink along with two scraps of patterned cardstock. I adhered the scraps of cardstock, the letters and swirl cookie to spell out Mom's Little Book of Recipes and Mixing Bowl and Wooden Spoon image on the cover. Next I embellished the "M"'s and "S" and Swirl Cookie with Clear Glitter Glue.


I strung and tie off elastic cording in the spine.


I cut patterned cardstock to fit the fronts and backs of three notebooks and adhered. I placed the doily stamp from the Cookie Clear Stamp Set onto an acrylic block and ink with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of patterned cardstock. I stamped the doily three times and fussy cut each doily out and adhered to the front of each notebook. I placed the Cookies stamp onto an acrylic block, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of patterned cardstock and cut out.  


I also stamped the heart and gingerbread man stamps onto a piece of kraft cardstock with Leather Archival Dye Ink and fussy cut both images out. I adhered the gingerbread man to the front of the "Cookies" notebook. I forgot to mention that before adhering one of the doily to the cover I stamped the "Baked with Love" sentiment onto the doily. I adhered the heart to the corner of the sentiment and embellished both the gingerbread and heart with clear glitter glue. I adhered one mixing bowl and wooden spoon images to the center of the doily of the last notebook.


I placed each recipe book underneath elastics cording and if I wanted to I could add a couple of my favorite recipes and a few cookies cutters before giving as a gift. 


If you do have any questions about this project please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Vintage Christmas Angel Gift Bag

Hi everyone! I'm back again with another idea for Christmas! This time I creating a gift bag to hold either candy or small gift.


I started by inking the Christmas angel stamp from Character Constructions: Vintage Christmas No. 4 with Wicked Black Ink onto a piece of Watercolor PaperPush the lid in of each of the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Palomino, Salmon, Posy, Graphite, Moonstone and Scuba. I removed the lid from each ink and add a little water and painted directly from each lid.


I watercolored the angel's face and hands with Palomino ink and let dry. Next I shaded the face with Salmon ink and painted the outfit with Scuba ink and shade with Graphite ink. The head scarf and belt I painted with Moonstone ink. I painted the candle with Posy ink.
Once dry I fussy cut the angel image out, applied Clear Glitter to wings and outfit and added four flat back pearls to angel.


I cut the following pieces of patterned cardstock: 3"x6" and 1 7/8"x3 1/2" and adhered both to the front of the bag. I also cut two strips of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than the bag. I cut a "V" into the end of the strips to create a banner and adhere to the bag.


Next I spritzed a wooden snowflake with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and once dry adhered to the bag. 


I added sequins, buttons and flat back pearls to the snowflake.


I stamped the "Peace on Earth" sentiment from the Vintage Christmas No. 4 Stamp Set with Wicked Black Ink onto a strip of white cardstock and cut a "V" in the end to create a banner and added onto the top of the snowflake.


I applied Pop Dots to the back of the angel and add to the bag. To keep the bag closed I clipped a Mini Clothes Pin to the top of the bag. There you have it another DIY Christmas project that will save you time...as in getting out in all the shopping craziness and it will save you a little money too. 😊
I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:
