Cute tags for jars.

Today’s tutorial is all about tags.  Tags can be used for gift bags, jars, or even an accent on a card.  These tags were made for the VIP night on Tuesday.  To become a part of the VIP night you need to host at least once this year from June to May.  Here’s how to create this tag.

Backgrounds become texture.

Sometimes adding a little bit of a background can make all the difference in the world.  It can make a dull card or accent become an amazing piece.  For this tag I used our new Stitched Labels Framelits Dies and the coordinating stamp set.

Inlaid cards with a bonus of kicking butt.

Today’s tutorial is on how to create this inlaid card.

So let’s get to it. 🙂

  1. Start with a card base cut tall instead of our regular.  Instead of cutting at 5 1/2 inches cut instead at 4 1/4″.  Then score at 5 1/2 ” and not 4 1/4″.  Thick white is used here.
  2. Then cut a mat at 5 x 3 3/4″ out of whisper white.  To cut the dragonfly use the dragonfly framelit (outline).  After cutting the outline then place the cutout with the detailed die over it.  Run through the Big Shot.
  3. After cutting the dragonfly from the white mat, then take your words of choice and apply to the stamparatus.  Grapefruit Grove and Basic Black are used here.
  4. To assemble, glue (snail adhesive) the designer series paper 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ to the white mat.  Then glue to the card base.  Now glue the detailed piece to inlay.
  5. Enjoy your card!

Happy Crafting!

Mother’s Day Card

Last night was a good, and long, Facebook Live.  I showed many of the new products from the new annual catalog and created a Mother’s Day card.  If you would like to see all of this on video please go to YouTube video of Live.

So for now I will show you the card.

This has the thick white cardstock as the base.  The new 6×6 paper is the mat.  The accents are in whisper white.  They are die cut with a new die and trimmed and punched with the new trio punch.  The stamp is from the new Itty Bitty Greetings and the metallic pearls are also new.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!
