Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tags & Topper die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the butterflies from the Butterflies & Stars Spray out of a piece of scrap cardstock. Place the now created stencil on the tag as desired. Place VersaMark Ink through the stencil. Sprinkle Armenian Pink Modern Gilding Powder over the stenciled image. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Two. Die cut two wreaths from the Wreath & Elements die out of Watercolour paper. Using the Watercolours from the Watercolor Palette, colour one wreath using the Deep Green colour and a waterbrush. Colour the other wreath in using the Sap Green colour and a waterbrush.

Step Three. Die cut the Thank You from the Thank You 2 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply VersaMark Ink to the entire surface of the sentiment. Sprinkle Celtic Mint Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the sentiment. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Four. Die cut five plain flowers from the Wreath & Elements die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut five cut out flowers from the Wreath & Elements die out of Watercolour paper. Using the Watercolours from the Watercolor Palette, colour three of the cut out flowers using the Rose colour and a waterbrush. Colour the remaining two cut out flowers using the Pink colour and a waterbrush. Adhere all five cut out flowers to all of the five plain flowers.

Step Five. Adhere the two wreaths together, making sure that the leaves on each leaf slightly overlap one another. Use foam squares on the top and bottom of the wreaths to adhere the wreaths to the middle of the tag.

Step Six. In the top left side of the wreath, adhere a rose colour and a pink colour flower as desired. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the Thank You sentiment to the middle of the wreaths. Adhere the remaining three flowers to the bottom right side of the wreath.

Step Seven. With all the elements on the tag, cut the tag down to 5 1/2″. Tie a twine bow through the top of the tag. To finish the tag, add three Craft Drops in White at the bottom left of the tag. Add another two dots to the bottom right side of the tag and then another two dots to the top right side of the tag.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Thank You Tag.

Make a Wish

April 16, 2020


IMG_9810Hey Friends!  It’s EK, and last week I discovered how gorgeous coloring on Soft Finish Cardstock is with colored pencils, so today I thought I would play around with some stamps that are simply meant to be colored with this medium.  I can not be more impressed with how stunning Charlene’s stamps look colored in with my pencils.

IMG_9797Step One:  Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches.  Stamp the sweet gal from the Make a Wish stamp set into the center of the paper.  Stamp the image again onto some masking paper (I used post-it note paper).  Trim out the image on the masking paper and add it to the stamped image

IMG_9798Step Two:  With the making paper in place, stamp other images from the stamp set over the sweet gal multiple times.

IMG_9799Here is what the cardstock looks like with the masking paper still in place.

IMG_9800Here is what the image looks like after the masking paper is lifited.

IMG_9801Step Three:  Color in the image with your colored pencils.

IMG_9802Step Four:  Trim a piece of True Green Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 and added it to an A2 cardframe with some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Five:  Die cut the focal image with one of the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die sets and adhere it to the True Green Soft Finish Cardstock.

IMG_9811What do you think of this medium on Soft Finish Cardstock?  Have you experiment with colored pencils on your projects?  Let us know in the comments below.  Until then, happy crafting!
