Tag #7

Took a few minutes to color up some images for tags. 

Teri Anderson's tag on day 13 of the 25 Days of Christmas tags made me think of this image with the candy can in the mug. Made the tag by using a corner rounder.  Re-enforcer is old patterned paper cut with and Elizabeth Crafts Design die.  Image colored with copics.

Tag #6

Fun new digital stamp that I used for a Christmas tag.  The image is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up with dimensional tape.  The piercing is done by hand.  Re-enforcer is cut with an Elizabeth Crafts Design die.
Lindsey M-p's tags on Day 5 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Challenge was my inspiration.

Enough and More

Too busy for much commentary for this card.

 My original plan was to stamp the sentiment and then make a frame around it with two Spellbinder dies but the stamp (Stamploration) was just a bit too large for that. So I stamped then cut it out with one of the dies.  Hand pierced around the edge and then added some sponging on the edges.   This piece is popped up with dimension tape.  The leaves are cut with Impression Obsession dies.  The pretty designer paper is by ADORNit.

Little Piggy Told Me

Yesterday I posted the tag that will go on my granddaughter's birthday present.  Today I want to show you the card - I love it.
Love these motion cards.  Here is a quick video showing the motion:




Isn't that fun?  It is made with Motion Crafts stamps and dies.
Pig is Doodle Pantry which I colored with Copics.
Stars are cut with Verve dies.
I know my granddaughter is going to love it (and the gift), being a lover and collector of pigs.
Oh, I almost forgot to show you the inside -  Elizabeth Crafts Design stamp.

Why Pigs?

Two of my grandchildren love pigs.  Another one is going to raise a pig for 4H.  I am not a pig lover so I don't understand the attraction but one of these grandchildren has a stuffed pig collection that she enters at the fair.  So for her birthday I will be giving her another pig.
Because it is late evening, this post will only show the tag for her present.  Tomorrow I will post the card I made her (which I love!)
The image is Doodle Pantry, colored with Copics.  the HB2U is Whimsy Stamps.
The re-enforcer is a die cut from an Elizabeth Crafts Designs tag set.  The corners are rounded with an EKSuccess punch.

Tag 5

Quick post but not so quick Christmas tag but only because it took me four attempts to get the pinecones and branches to look good; either too many, not enough, etc.  But I am pleased with this final tag.
My inspiration was Tracey McNeely's tag on day 8 - 25 Days of Christmas Tags.
I love the cone and branches but because my stamps, Gina K Designs, were different, I needed to go with a different configuration.  I love the score lines too so I added those.
The tag is cut out with the Elizabeth Crafts Designs tag die.  The red re-enforcer is part of that die set.

Attitude of Gratitude

Gratitude.  Such an incredible, absolutely necessary attitude for our lives. I can attest to the wonderful healing properties of having a grateful spirit.  It helped bring me out of years of depression  and helped create contentment in my life.

The sentiment is a digital image cut with MFT Stitched Rectangle dies.  Beautiful paper - AdornIt.  I made the flower with Cuttlebug flower cuts which I sprayed with water and scrunched up. Added some Distress Oxide ink on the edges and in the center.   The leaves are Elizabeth Crafts Design die cuts.  The frame is made by cutting an oval within an oval using Spellbinder dies.
