Take a look at my tag:

Rubber Dance Stamps Beautiful Bugs

I had so much creating this tag.  I recently took an online class that taught me about the color wheel and how to use colors.  I created a postcard size switch using three colors next to each other.  I used blue, green and yellow green.

When I saw the theme for this challenge I knew I wanted to use this postcard.

Using Neat and Tangled Scalloped Die set cut out the tag.

Using the Mini Misti, stamp the Dragonfly and the sentiment from Rubber Dance Stamps Beautiful Bugs and Something Wonderful stamp set using black ink.

Rubber Dance Stamps Something Wonderful

Then use We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Power Punch to punch a hole in the tag.

Now it time to get the ribbon colored.  Using Tim Holtz Crinkle Ribbon, cut three pieces.

Spray them with Altenew Ink Spray Ocean Wave, Frayed Leaf, and Warm Sunshine. Crinkle in your hand and then dry it with a heat tool.

Add them to the tag and your done.

Rubber Dance Stamp February 2017 Theme Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with the Rubber Dance Stamp Theme Challenge!!

The theme is “Lots of Layers”!  All you have to do is create a piece of work that has a lot of layers.

Check out what I created to inspire you:

love-rds

I tried to keep my tag pretty simple since that is more my style, but I also wanted to play around with some mixed media.

Are you asking yourself, where are the layers?  I was hoping that you would ask.

Here you go:

  1. I add gesso on the top of the tag and let it dry.
  2. Then I blended Distressed Ink Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Seedless Preserve.
  3. After that, I used Rubber Dance Stamps Round in Circles stamped paired with StazOn Jet Black Ink to stamp the circles.
  4. Then I used the Rubber Dance Stamps Think Again stamp set to stamp the sentiment with the StazOn Ink.
  5.  To finish the tag off, I colored the Crinkle Ribbon with Mustard Seed reinker and added it to the tag.

Thats four layers!!! Yayyy!

What do you think? Please let me know below. I would love to hear from you.

The winner will win five fabulous stamps fromRubber Dance Stamp!! Wait, if the winner used stamps from Rubber Dance Stamp, they will winner another five stamps! That’s a total of 10 stamps!! Wow!!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. The theme this month is Anything but a Card!!

Take a look at my tag:

Here is how I created this tag:

I gather all of my supplies needed to create a tag:  Hero Arts Joyful Tiding Tag Set, Hero Arts Raspberry Ink, Hero Arts Black Ink, Lucy Abrams Ivory Sequin, We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Photo Sleeves,  and Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus, We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and a ColorBox Art Dauber.

I die cut three tags so that I could stack them on top of each other.  Then I used the sponge dauber to add some color using the Hero Arts Raspberry Jam Ink.

Once the top tag was inked to my liking, I adhered the two additional tags with Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus.

Once all of the pieces were in place, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment on the tag.

Now the tag is ready to become a shaker.

I gathered all of the supplies need to create the shaker portion of the tag.

You need a We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Fuseable Photo Sheets.

Place the finished tag inside the plastic and line the die up over it.  Use Washi tape to hold it down.  Then you want to glide the fuse tool around the die, sealing it.

Once you add the sequin is added inside, seal the top of the tag the same way you did the body of the tag.

Punch a hole using a We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and string a piece of string.

Nice and easy! Super cool to create!

Stencil Tag – a2z Scrapbooking September 2016 Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a new a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. The theme this month is Make It A Tag!! 

Take a look at the card I created:

Hello Tag (a2z)

I used Hero Arts Asian Flower Pattern Stencil and Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door) to create the background on the white tag that I cut out by hand.

Then I used Hero Arts Hello Stamp and Cuts set to cut out the word hello and adhered it to the front of the tag with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. After that I stamped the rest of the sentiment underneath the die cut.

I added a white ribbon to the top of the tag to finish it off.

Super, super easy to create.

CS Take It Make It: Using Different Inks

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge for June.

Our theme is Take a Technique: Lets Get Inky!!

For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use more then one type of ink on your project (ink pads, ink sprays, stains, acrylic inks, etc.)  Or more then one color of ink on your project…and don’t forget to include stamping somewhere too!!

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my tag:

Hello Tag (TIMI)

I have to admit I’m super excited about this tag.  I don’t usually create tags, much less one with all of this ink on it, but I have to say I really had fun creating this tag.

Let’s check out how I created this:

I gather my supplies that I needed.

tag supplies (CSTIMI)

I used the ink blending tool to apply the ink to tag, overlapping the colors for seamless blending.

ink blending (CSTIMI)

Then I sprayed water in my hand, then sprinkled the water onto the tag.  The inks reacts to water so it creates water spot on the tag. Let the tag dry.

water splatter (CSTIMI)

Once the tag is dry, spray some wild honey distress spray stain to the tag. Let that dry.

ink sprayed (CSTIMI)

After that ink up the stamp with waterproof ink and stamp the image.

Once the image is on the tag, ink the edges with wild honey distress ink.

Inked edges (CMTIMI)

Now that the tag is done, I inked up the ribbon with the wild honey spray and heat set the ribbon.

You add the ribbon to the tag. I felt like this card needed a sentiment.  So I die cut 3 hello’s from Mama Elephant’s Venice Envelope die set.

Take another look:

Tag You’re It Challenge

Hell everyone!!  I popping in really quickly to play along with Tag You’re It Challenge this week.

Marybeth is the Designer this week and this is what she came up with:

TYIC+%2326

 

I love the butterfly on her tag so I wanted to give it a try!

I created these watercolor background pieces the other day and want to use one of them to create my tag.

Watercolor pieces

Take a look at my tag:

You make me smile upright

I love that watercolor piece and didn’t want to hide it so I decided to create my second tag using acetate to create my second tag.

You might be able to see it better here:

You make me smile tag flat

 

 

My sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Lunchbox Love Stamp Set and I stamped it in Versamark Ink and embossed it with Stampin’ Up! Gold embossing powder.

I punched out two butterflies using Stampin’ Up! Elegant Butterfly Punch and their Bitty Butterfly Punch out of the same watercolor piece.

I adhered everything with glue dots and added the Papertrey Ink Baker’s Twine Cream Cotton to finish off my tag.

Easy Peasy!! What do you think?  Let me know below in the comment section.
