Peace, Love, Joy Tag

Hi there,

we are starting a new Challenge over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and this time the topic is "A floral Christmas":

  • cut out all the pieces you need to assemble two pine cones and some foliage using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Pine Cone die set, white Soft Finish Cardstock and kraft cardstock
  • add shading to the kraft cardstock using Distress Ink Gathered Twigs
  • color the foliage with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • cove a pre-cut tag with white gesso and create a background using Distress Paint (Stormy Sky, Walnut Stain)
  • add splatters with watered-down white acrylic paint
  • stamp the sentiment from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Classic Christmas Sentiments with Archival Ink Coffee
  • shape the pine cone elements with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Metal Tool Set and adhere them directly to the tag
  • cut out a bow from felt using dies from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Spring Basket set
  • dye a piece of seam binding with Distress Stain Tarnished Brass and thread it through the hole of the tag
  • add some snow effects using Elizabeth Craft Designs Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter

The question for this month is - Which Elizabeth Craft Designs flower or foliage die or stamp set would you chose to create a Christmas card or decoration?

Christmas Shaker Tag Duo

Hi there,

I created this cute Christmas Shaker tag duo for the Karten-Kunst Blog:

  • cut out two tags from smooth white cardstock and two tags from patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas 6x6 pap pad with the help of the Karten-Kunst Tag dies
  • add openings to the patterned paper tags using dies from the same set
  • stamp the sentiments from the Karten-Kunst Capri Weihnachtspost with Versafine Onyx Black
  • cover the opening with acetate and create a shaker pocket with double-sided foam adhesive
  • fill the shaker with Nuvo Crystal Cloud Circles and Nuvo Desert Sunset Stars
  • close the shaker with the previously cut white tags
  • thread multi-colored twine through the holes of the tags

Have a christmasy day.
