Holiday Wine Bottle Tags

Every year I make a handful of goodies for my husband to take to work.  One of the final things I get to make is wine bottle tags.  Every year he gives his managers a bottle of wine and a gift card.  With all the new goodies I learned while making the 12 Tags of Christmas.  I have a bunch of cuts I had made while borrowing these dies.  I had 15 tags to make so I made 3 styles of tags, 5 each.

Tag #1.
This is my take on Tag 12

This WISH tag is all in gold.  I picked this big snowflakes up at the $1 Store.  They were silver so I glittered them gold. I cut WISH at 3/4" using Sophisticated in gold then layered a shadow of black.  I used the shadow cut for the gold, so I needed to repeat in black and offset the gold.  To make it pop I added diamond glaze on the letters. 
I made this little tissue flower using gold tissue...no stamping this time.  I picked up gold tinsel garland for a $1 and stapled it to the bottom of the tag.  It even has little gold starts.  I hot glued this antiqued gold brad to the flower then glued again to the tag.

I cut my tags using the TH Big Tag Die.  I picked up 100 Manila file folders for under $8...that's 4 tags per folder.  I stamped the tag with my french script stamp.  Then stamped white tissue with my music note background stamp.  I modge podged the tag, then layered the tissue over the tag.  Using my heat gun I dried the tag, then added Rock Candy to give the tag a vintage cracked look.  Then I added distress ink Tea Dye to the edges.

TAG #3.
This tag is a take on Tag 4 and Tag 6.

This tag has a lot going on.  I sprayed adhesive to my tag, layered tin foil then ran the tag through my Snow Flurries embossing folder.  I painted with acrylic paint, dried with my heat gun then distressed with some sandpaper.  Gently scuff the paint off the snowflakes to expose the snowflakes.  NOEL is cut in silver shimmer paper at 3/4" using Sophisticated.  I added diamond glaze to the letters for a pop.

This snowman die I borrowed and did a ton of cuts in white, Kraft and cereal boxes.  The snowman is inked in distress inks, faded jeans and broken china on white.  I ran picket fence stain over and finished with Rock Candy crackle.  A silver jingle and silver pipe cleaner finishes off the snowman.

For $1 I picked up this silver tinsel garland and have used a ton of it over the past weeks.  I stamped it onto the bottom of the tag, then layered some silver mesh ribbon with a silver snowflake brad in the bottom corner.  It's very subtle.

Tag #3.
This tag is a take on Tag 9 and Tag 10 and a little of Tag 7.

I went a little simpler...ok not really.  The tag was stamped in Versamark and clear embossed.  I inked with fire brick, Forrest moss and peeled paint exposing my stamp and making it pop.  Again, I borrowed Snow Tree die, inked it and layered twice with UTEE giving the tree a thick glassy look.

To fill the corner I used my new Festive Greenery die for some holy leaves.  I borrowed the pine cone (I suck at making them) as my GF just got it.  I really loves these little cones...if only I was better at making them!  I cut a little sprig of greenery from my mini fake tree and wrapped some of these berries from garland I picked up for $1. 

Had to make these little ornaments again.  The paper I am using is from TH Seasonal pack.  I guess I keep picking the more muted images as they don't pop too much!

For added embellishment I used my SU Antique Brads to hold the twine for the ornament.  Then added this glass mini ornament to the ribbon.

I also needed to add a spot to hold a GC.  But I didn't want to take away from the front of the tag.  I cut my mini Kraft bags down to 3 3/4", then punching with my scallop punch a little peaker spot to see the VISA GC.  To keep it simple I stamped in vintage photo this TH deer and clear embossed.  Tieing it off with some twine.  Then stamping my OH SCRAP stamp...hehe:)

Here are all the bottles and their tags together.

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
