Stitched Gift Tags with Nichol

Hello! Nichol here today with a trio of adorable gift tags that are also gift card holders using the Stitched Gift Tag Creative Cuts. I love how these adorable gift card holder tags hold a gift card perfectly! I created a trio of three in red/white/gray with touches of glitter paper for holiday sparkle!

The Stitched Gift Tags were die cut from red, white, and gray cardstock, as well as the bow elements from the die collection. The contrast tag flap piece from the Stitched Gift Tags set and a snowflake from the Flurries Die Collection were die cut from White Glitter, Silver Glitter, and Red Glitter cardstocks. 

On the tag base, I stamped a phrase from the Peaceful Wishes Stamp Set. This greeting is covered up when the gift card is in place but is revealed when the gift card is removed!

The contrasting piece of the tag flap was adhered to each using liquid adhesive. The bows were glued and assembled as shown and adhered to the top of each tag, lining everything up with the die cut holes.

The glitter snowflake was adhered to each tag as shown.

Tags were die cut from smooth white cardstock using the Mini Tags Dies. A greeting from the Mini Messages Stamp Set was stamped on each tag, colored in with a red marker, and attached the tag base by threading it and the large gift card holder tag together with silver twine.

Lovely Piggies with Anna

Hello! Anna is here today with my Designer series post highlighting last release's Lovely Piggies stamp set. Also I combined it with new Framed Tags - Hug It Out - Creative Cuts and made four Valentine tags. They look so sweet! 

Mama Elephant Designer Series: Lovely Piggies @akossakovskaya @mamaelephant #cardmaking #mamaelephant 
I started the creation with stamping and coloring with Copic markers four sweet piggies. For their skin tone I used colors number R00 and R21. Then I die cut them with the coordinating dies. Also I stamped some small elements with hearts.

Then I prepared some tags. I cut them of the white card stock and also added windows or hearts. I like that Framed Tags - Hug It Out - Creative Cuts contains heart element, that cuts only right and left parts of the heart and leaves the middle not cut.

Then I adhered pink and gold glitter card stock pieces under my tags to add more texture. I like how pink and gold look together! And then I just adhered all piglets details to the tags. And also I added the small labeled sentiments and sequins. And the last accent is pink and gold twine. Have a good day!

Scripty Notes with Vera

Hello everyone! It's Vera on the blog today to share fun idea using  Scripty Notes,  a fun hand-lettered sentiment set designed by Kryssi! Her handwriting is so beautiful and it pairs nicely with the sweet images from Luli Bunny's Lovely Piggies set!


I started by stamping the Lovely Piggies on Bristol paper, colored with Copics and die cut with Lovely Piggies - Creative Cuts. I made the tags by mixed and matched some dies as shown in the supplies picture below.


I die cut two piece rounded frame from Frame Tags - Lafayette - Creative Cuts (No.1), one for the tag based and the other one, I die cut again with a part dies from Venice Envelope - Creative Cuts (No.2). I used hole reinforcement from Tags a Lot - Creative Cuts (No.3) for placing the twine and bow from Stitched Gift Tags - Creative Cuts (No.4) for additional accessories on tags.
 
On the left, I blended the based tag with dye ink pad and splatter with white paint then white heat embossed the sentiment.  On the right, I just simply heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder, decorate with pink bow on top and added here and there some sparkling clear sequins. 


Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope this inspired you to create beautiful projects! Happy crafting!

Lion Dance with Amy

Hi crafty friends! Amy here, and today I have a fun floating floor pop-up card to share with you featuring the Lion Dance stamp set. The card depicts a colorful and festive Lunar New Year celebration, with the Lion Dance.

Inside of the card

To begin, I colored the images from Lion Dance with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating Creative Cuts.

I made my card base by trimming Bristol paper to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4". To create the sky, I inked the front and the inside of the card base with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide.

Front of the card


I die-cut Bristol paper with the hill borders from Landscape Trio Creative Cuts to be used for the front and the inside of the card. I used Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide to ink blend the hill panels. I added splatters of water to the ink blended sky and the hill panels to add texture.


I die-cut gray and black cardstock with the Cityscape Creative Cuts. I adhered the Cityscape panel (for the gray one I have the back facing front) and one of the hill panels to the inside of the card. Then, I adhered the other hill panel to the card front.


To make the floating floor, I trimmed light gray cardstock to 5 1/2" x 4 1/2" and scored lines at 1/2",  3 1/2" and 4".  I trimmed 1 1/2" long and 1/4" wide strips and folded them to an L shape. I laid out the images as shown on the floating floor, and used a craft knife to make the slits a little wider than 1/4" wide right underneath the images.


I folded at the scored lines and adhered the floating floor as shown and inserted the L shaped strips into the slits (the bottom of the L gets taped to the card base). This allows the images to pop up when you open the card. Then, I adhered the images to the strip, trimming it if it was too long. At this point, I adhered the other images to the card front.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I adhered it to the front of the floating floor. That's all for today!
