12 Giftable Tags of Christmas 2016 #10

Hello all!  Hope you, your family and friends had a wonderful Christmas!  

I have one more Christmas tag to share with you that I started during Kathyrac's last 30 Day Coloring Challenge finished a few weeks ago.   The tag is die cut from Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Tags.  I first put a layer of distress ink then, over top of that, used a striped stencil to add more color.  Next I colored some white card stock with several green copic markers to create an ombre effect and die cut the joy using the Lawn Fawn Scripty Joy die.  I added some sparkle with clear Wink of Stella then a layer of glossy accents and adhered to the tag with another joy behind it cut from white card stock.

This tag will be entered in the Simon Says Make It Sparkle Challenge.

Double Partial Die Cutting

Hello all!  I don't do this technique very often but I love it!   The double partial die cutting is easy once you do it a few times.   This project features the Essentials By Ellen All Inside and the coordinating die.  The bear is colored with copics and the sunshine sentiment is also colored a "sunshine yellow."  The little guy is so cute and the die cuts out his hands so he can hold all kinds of things!  

The sun rays in the die cut window were created using the My Favorite Things Sun Ray stencil some ink blending with distress inks.

12 Giftable Tags of Christmas # 2

Today's project features the Mama Elephant Reindeer Games set and is part of my series of Christmas Tags for 2016.  First, I prepared the tag by cutting one of the tags from the Large Tag die from Simon Say Stamp using navy cardstock.  Then to give it more night sky dimension, I sponged on some Black Soot Distress Ink with an ink blending tool.  Next, I used the SSS Falling Snow Stencil and some white pigment ink to create the look of snow.  The cute reindeer and pine tree from Mama Elephant Reindeer Games are colored with copics and cut with the matching die.  To finish off the tag, I put a snow border under the reindeer using the MFT Snow Drifts Border Dies.  A little Wink of Stella finished off the snow drift.

This project will be entered in the Simon Says: Make for the Border Challenge.

Mama Elephant Cub Cuddles

My new Mama Elephant Cub Cuddles set arrived in the mail last week so I got it inky right away by entering in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Simon Says: Stencil It!  I love this set, both the images and the sentiments.  First, I created a card base with Neenah Soloar White 110 lb card stock and used a Heidi Swapp Triangle stencil to create a subtle background with Tim Holtz Distress Ink and a mini round ink blending tool.  

Next, I stamped one of the bears from the Cub Cuddles set with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored him in with copics.  I also stamped and colored a bunch of the heart shaped balloons.  Everything was cut out with the matching dies.  The sentiment is heat embossed in white on black cardstock.  Added some sequins and some Wink of Stella on the balloons and called it done!

Unforgettable Shaker Card

Today's project is an entry in the WPlus9 Get Sketchy Challenge #1.  The challenge is to make a card inspired by the sketch below.  

 

Here is my take on the challenge.  

Unforgettable 5.27.15

 

I used the WPlus9 Unforgettable Stamp set and matching die to create a shaker card.   The super cute elephant is colored with copic markers and die cut.  The background is inked with the SSS Medium Dots stencil and white pigment ink.  The shaker was made using my fabulous new WR Memory Keepers Fuse Tool (happy mothers day to me!)

This project will also be entered in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

Copic Airbrushed Background Technique

Hi all - A little while ago, Jennifer Mcguire had a guest post on her blob by Sandy Allnock HERE.  It looked fun so I decided to try it.  I airburshed a few wide stripes on some white card stock.  Then I used a striped stencil over too and spritzed it with colorless blender.  Sandy used a distress ink mini blending tool to apply the colorless blender but I wanted to try the spray and it seemed to work well too.  

I used my new Lawn Fawn Chit Chat set to add the sentiment and a couple of the little birds. Finished off with some sequin and that was it!

Happy Graduation!

Today's project is a fun Happy Graduation card featuring several Simon Says Stamp products. First, the background panel is all sparkly with the SSS Medium Dots Stencil, white embossing paste, and glitter sprinkled over top.  The ballons are die cut using the SSS Balloon Die - the graduates future college colors are orange and purple.  Used the SSS Happy die and the Happy Stamp set to create the greeting.   To add a little interest, I added a strip of patterened paper in some coordinating colors.
