Just Breathe – Bright and Bold Tag

Afternoon, it’s been manic here with one thing and another but things are settling down now! 

Managed to get some crafting done, I’ve used one of the new dies from Polkadoodles.

If you’ve not seen the dies from Polkadoodles, I’d definitely recommend them, they cut like a dream and they release the card stock so easily. Not only do they do the job of die cutting brillantly, the prices are fabulous, prices start at just £3.49!!

 

 

Step by Step

1. Cut a tag shape from white card stock. Used Dylusions paints and a blending tool to create the base of the background on the tag.

2. Used stencils and Dylusions paints to add some interest to the background.

3. Used black archival ink and Polkadoodles stamps to create the border on the tag and to add further interest to the background. Coloured the border with a white Derwent Paint Liner pen.

4. Cut the Bubbleicious frames from white card stock. Coloured the fancy oval die cut with Dylusions paints.

5. Stamped the sentiment and butterflies, using Polkadoodles stamp sets and black Archival ink.

6. Cut the flowers and leaves from the Bubbleicious die set from white card stock. Coloured the flowers and leaves with Distress inks and Copic markers.

7. Adhered the fancy oval to the main Bubblecious frame using 3D foam pads.

8. Matte the tag onto black card stock, trimmed and punched a hole. Adhered the Bubbleicious frame to the tag using 3D foam pads.

9. Adhered the flowers and leaves using Pinflair 3D glue gel. Embellished the flower centers with white 3D liquid pearls.

Digi Choosday – Week 39 – Anything Goes

 

Morning, it’s Tuesday and the start of a new challenge at Digi Choosday

The theme is – Anything Goes.

I’ve made a Xmas wall hanging for this weeks challenge, using the new release from Polkadoodles Festive Christmas available on CD-ROM.

 

Step by Step

1. Using a graphics program, I use My Craft Studio, I choose a one of the pre-designed circle frames from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas collection and resized. I added additional elements from the embellishments section, the snowflakes and script, and altered the brightness to make them white, then altered the opacity so background would show through. I also did the same for the reindeer and the text.

2. Die cut the circle, using a Tattered Lace circle die, and matted onto decorative circle, cut from white card stock using a Spellbinders die.

3. Printed a co-ordinating paper, also from the Polkadoodles Festive Christmas collection, matted onto white card stock.

4. Matted the focal design using 3D foam tape.

5. Embellished with some snowflakes, die cut from white card stock using a Tattered Lace die set. Added some clear flat back gems to the snowflakes.

6. Used some white ribbon to create a hanging loop.

Digi Choosday – Week 37 – Anything Goes

Morning, it’s Tuesday and the start of a new challenge at Digi Choosday

The theme is – Anything Goes.

For this weeks challenge the DT were asked to used ribbon and/or lace, I decided to make a tag using the Matte Medium image transfer technique using Matte Medium. You can see my other make using the same image transfer technique here.

 

  

Step by Step

1. Cut a tag shape from white card stock, created the background, using Imagination Crafts Mixed Media sprays in pink and turquoise.

2. Gave the whole tag a coat of DecoArt Matte Medium, once the paint was completely dry. Left to dry.

3. Printed the cogs and keys image from the Polkadoodles Little Kingdom digital collection, using a laser printer,

4. Gave the tag another coat of Matte Medium, place the image face down on the Matte Medium and burnished the whole image. I heat set the piece and then left to cool and flatten out for a couple of hours, under a heavy book. Usually people leave the piece to dry over night but I’m too impatient, heat setting has worked for me so far but if you try the technique you may want to stick to the traditional method.

5. Using a piece of damp sponge I rubbed away the paper to reveal the image transfer.

6. Embossed the tag using a Tattered Lace embossing folder.

7. Used Creative Expressions Gilding Polish in pink and turquoise to highlight the embossing.

8. Attached a ribbon, paper flowers and the sentiment. The sentiment was cut from black card stock using a Tattered Lace alphabet die set.

9. Matted on to black card stock and trimmed.
