Skirtin' Around- Wedding Tag

As with any purchase I make I ask my myself how versatile will this be?  Unless I can think up multiple uses I won't get it.  Certainly the Grass die (Tapered Fringe) fit this for me.  I really like it...so now to challenge myself on how to use it.
 
What to do with this grass die? Make it a WEDDING DRESS!  Shut the Front Door...layers of tissue cut with this die makes for a great dress.  Oh those middle of the night inspirations!

But first, the tag.  I sprayed my tag with Adhesive and glued some heavy duty tin foil.  Then embossed with the new French Script folder.  I painted gold, sanded then heat some UTEE.  Seriously, so pretty!


I cut and layered tissue with Tapered Fringe, starting at the bottom of the Sewing Room Dress Form die.  I also glued the matching tissue to the dress form.  I'm going for a monochromatic look here.


To achieve a "bust" I simply glued a little cotton then folded the tissue over it.  I tied and glued the gold bow, then hot glued this old metal button of my grandmother's.


Layering the 2 small Tattered Floral flowers cut with Oven Liner.  I embossed and inked the larger flowers, layering 3x.  Curl the tips for a fluffy look.


I cut a little banner and stamped "Always & Forever" from TH Simple Sayings, attaching with the Tiny Attacher.  Along the bottom is some Tinsel, heated and inked with more gold paint.

 
This Wedding Tag is a challenge for me to find a new way to use my new Grass die (Tapered Fringe;)  I might attach the tag to a card or simply drape it over my favourite bottle of
French Wine as a wedding gift:o)
 
I would like to know your thoughts on what you would use the Grass die for?

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
