RC Tags

Hi Friends,

It's the weekend - yipee :)  I haven't posted in a while as it's been a very busy few weeks with the kids. The lead up to Christmas is always a bit crazy!  While I haven't had much craft room time I have been making time to follow Tracey's 25 days of Christmas Tags.  If you haven't had the chance to check it out you definitely should - so many awesome companies participating  and there is a bucket load if inspiration and prizes!




I managed to make some clean and simple tags which were inspired by Tracey's tags from Day 10.


I loved the large sentiment, the embossing, especially the gold, and the little pop of red too.  I haven't never made tags that consisted of a sentiment only but was inspired to do so.  


Supplies:
Reverse Confetti Stamps -  Seasonal Sentiments
Reverse Confetti Dies - Circles N Scallops
Reverse Confetti Die - Circle of Hearts Cover Panel
MFT Cardstock - Silver Sparkle
MFT Cardstock - Gold Sparkle
Tsukineko Versamark Watermark Pad
Simon Says Stamp Embossing Powder - Ultra Fine Silver
Simon Says Stamp Embossing Powder - Ultra Fine Gold

Thanks so much for popping by and taking a look.
Happy crafting,
Ax

Coffee Loving Yeti

Hi Friends,

A quick post to link up my second coffee card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
I will be back later to update the post. My wee one has just woken up from his nap!

......Oh my goodness, I can't believe that I forgot all about updating this post. Life with two small humans is full on!  I am really pleased that I managed to create a second card for the hop, free time is so limited and when I do get time to sit down and craft sometimes I'm too tired to be creative.  Anyway, I really wanted to use the Beast Friends stamp set from MFT.  I have owned it for ages but have never made a card with any of the images :0 That yeti is just to cute. 


 Supplies:
MFT Stamps - Beast Friends
MFT Die-namics - Beast Friends 
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Square Scallop Frames
Lawn Fawn Cuts - Stitched Hillside Borders 
Memory Box Dies - Crystalline Borders
MFT Stamps - Gold Sparkle Cardstock 
Tsukineko Memento Ink - Black Tuxedo
Tsukineko Versamark 
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink - Tumbled Glass
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink - Stormy Sky
White Acrylic Paint
Simon Says Stamp Embossing Powder - Ultra Fine Gold
Nuvo Glitter Accents - Fresh Snowfall

The yeti and his accessories were coloured up with copics and cut using their complimentary dies.  As my time was limited I kept this card very clean and simple.  I found it my scrap book and piece of card inked up with distress inks perfect for the sky.  I watered down some white acrylic paint and splattered the card for some background snow.  For the ground I die cut some snow hills and covered them with nuvo glitter fresh snowfall.  I also added some gold sparkle snowflakes to complete my scene.  The frame consists of four layers, three white and for the top layer I found a scrap of blue cardstock which complimented the yeti's scarf.  The sentiment was gold embossed directly onto the card front.

I would also like to link this card up with the following challenge:

Warm Coffee Wishes

Hi Friends,

A quick post to link up my third coffee card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
I will be back later to update the post. My wee one has just woken up from his nap!

OK, so it has taken me quite a few to update this post....life with a toddler and 3 year old is hectic!  I was really, really happy that I managed to fir in a third clean and simple card for the challenge.  This beautiful image is from Graciellie Designs - it was fun and easy to colour.  She has loads of great digital images, if you get the time you should definitely check out her shop.


Supplies:
Graciellie Designs Digital Stamp - Christmas Cheer 
Nitwit Digital Collection - Beary Christmas
MFT Stamps - Hug in a Mug
PaperTrey Ink - Canvas Impression Plate 
Tsukineko Memento Ink - Black Tuxedo
Tsukineko Versamark 
Simon Says Stamp Embossing Powder - Ultra Fine Gold
Ranger Liquid Pearls - Gold Pearl
Ranger Glossy Accents

The image was coloured using copics and fuzzy cut out.  I added some gold liquid pearls to the centre of the poinsettia and some glossy accents to the small berries to complete the image.  The green plaid paper is a scrap I have had sitting on a folder for years, and it was the perfect size.  I knew it was a digital paper from nitwits and I had a quick browse and remembered it was from the Beary Christmas digital collection.  I felt the background of the card needed a little something else so I cut a white panel and used the a canvas impression plate before foam mounting it to the card base.  The sentiment was directly gold embossed onto my panel.
