Post#69 Gift Tag with Stamped Acetate Layer

I am really enjoying using acetate in my projects these days….here is another one with an acetate layer…
I die cut an olive green tag and made a dotted border all around the tag with a white gel pen….then I die cut the same tag from the acetate sheet….I placed this on top of the green base tag….I also stamped the girl and boy holding balloons on acetate tag with white ink…
The ribbon holds both the tags together nicely so there was no need for any adhesives…
Hope you liked it….

Post#65 ‘Made With Love’ Rectangular Gift Box

Coming up with dimensions for a gift box is not as easy as it seems…I took a pretty long time to get things right with this box…..So hats off to anyone and everyone who has managed to create a box or a gift bag from scratch with their own dimensions…
The aim was to make a long rectangular box to fit in a good amount of goodies inside…and so after a lot of tries I finally came up with dimensions for this box…The final box is about 7″ long and 2″ wide and 2″ tall..
Since I chose a printed cardstock for the box, I wanted the print to be seen and not covered up by decorations and paper bands…so I chose a small gold doily as the only decoration and closed the box using a gold stretchy string….
There is also a stamped tag on the box which has been die cut out of acetate and stamped with StazOn white pigment ink…
Hope you liked this box…

Post#45 Tiny Birthday Card

Here’s another shaped birthday card…these kind of cards are a bit difficult to decorate but are good for a change from regular square or rectangular cards…and they can easily be attached to presents,gift baskets or floral bouquets….
The card base has been created using a scalloped square die…I like how the die has created an embossed border at the edge…to get this effect I had added a few shims of paper on top of the cutting plate while I was die cutting….without having to run it again through my Cuttlebug using an embossing mat…..
The front panel was stamped and only two of the edges rounded…The sentiment was stamped on a vellum paper and then die cut using a tag die…lastly I added a tiny piece of string through the tag…
Hope you like this card…

Post#23 Birthday Tag Slight Shadow Effect

Green and blue was a combination I wanted to try….So I made a small tag to test it out….It turned out nice….so I’m sharing it with you…. 🙂
I have also used a stamping technique called a shadow effect…..where you stamp the image once and then again by slightly moving the position of the stamp…I like how where the two colours overlap there is a new colour and it somehow looks like I’ve stamped the image three times..
On a die cut tag I stamped the swirly stamp twice….then stamped the sentiment sideways…added a couple of butterflies…and ribbons to finish the tag..
Hope you like it…

Post#19 Tag Card – Yellow Hello

Sometimes,a simple hello from someone you haven’t heard from in a while makes you feel happy….and special…and thought about…
This card is made on a Kraft card base….and a yellow and white printed paper as top layer….I die cut two fishtail shaped tags in plain yellow and white….and on the top tag I attached a colourful Hello die cut word….to attach the tags to each other I used a bit of thick yellow bakers twine…and a few golden sequins here and there to finish the card…
Hope you liked it.

Post#17 Bright Red Tag

The other day I saw a gift wrapped with newspaper as wrapping paper…..It looked really nice with bit of string wrapped around it….and the crafter in me instantly thought that a bright tag on that gift would’ve looked really eye catching…
So with that thought,I started on this tag…didn’t take too long for it to come together…
A die cut tag coloured with a bit of watercolour paints(my favourite these days)…a sentiment stamp at the top…some ribbon and rhinestones to finish the tag…
Hope you liked it.

Post#12 Flower Stamped Tag

So now you know I really like flower stamps….Here’s a simple tag using one of those….
Sometimes less is more…..and for this tag I did just that….kept things simple….I felt that there was no need to colour in the stamped image and no need for any bling…so I stamped the same flower three times and left the rest of the space clean and untouched…
A little die cut word was added and the word ‘with’ stamped in red above it…added a ribbon on top and that’s it…all done…
I hope you like it.
