Christmas Tags!

I have been using my stash to make cards — especially for Halloween and Thanksgiving! However, I splurged for Christmas and bought a few things from Canvas Corp Brands.

 I first cut out all the elements from Sentiment sheet to use as embellishments on the tags.

 These large gifts on the mistable paper are darling! I wanted to paint them! I used a few different mists with a paint brush color them in.

For the black based black and white paper I glimmer misted it with several coordinating colors.

 I did the same for the white based sheet.

 As those sheet dried, I trimmed out the presents!

 Once the paper was dry I created my card bases using a tag die. I cut slightly larger tags out of solid card stock to mat the tags on and use as a base.

 Finally the super fun part — assembling the tags! I pulled in a little bit of bling with sequence I had in my stash, but other than that I only used the Jolly Christmas and mists!

 I made a total of 20 festive and very jolly tags!

However, I still had a few bases left over and created my favorite project from this collection — A Santa banner! This will be darling on a large gift!

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

HUGE Fall Blog Hop!

Hello Friends! Thank you so much for stopping by today. You are in for a treat! Today I am participating in a  MEGA BLOG HOP!!!!!! There are lots of fantastic designers world wide that have come together to showcase terrific fall projects that you can recreate and put your own artistic touches on in your craft room. You have seen a lot of these designers featured on sites like Tattered Angels, 7 Gypsies and and Canvas Corp Brands! Do you see a trend? This is the  CCB Fall Blog HOP! Each of these designers have created a project to share with you on their blog. Some are offering prizes, so please hop on through to each blog. If you are inspired would you be so kind as to share the hop with others? We would truly appreciate it!

I am sharing with you a banner I created:

I found a CCB banner kit in my stash that I thought would be perfect for Halloween:
I used the black and white polka dot paper from the kit as a template to create the pieces. I first cut out the smaller piece and traced it 1/4 inch larger on different substrates as a backing:
I misted each piece with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and set them aside to dry:
I used the Halloween Kraft pack to create the smaller pieces of the banner:
I found some wonderful  images from the mini art fall paper pack that I painted with glimmer mist. I loved playing on this paper because it was such a beautifully strong substrate that withstood a lot of water. I waited for everything to dry and assembled the banner. I cut a few canvas strips to sew on to the top of each piece to hang from the rope provided in the kit. To finish it off I found gold chipboard letters that are probably over a decade old in my stash to spell out “SPOOKY”. 

I am giving away a small goodie bag filled with handmade (by me) cards, ATCs and supplies to one lucky winner. All you need to do is subscribe to my blog and leave a comment stating your favorite thing about fall. I will announce a winner on this post OCTOBER 5 2018!
