Joy Gift Tag

August 1, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Joy Gift Tag.

To create my Joy Gift Tag, I’ve used a variety of dies and stamps from Suzanne Cannon as well as Els van de Burgt Studio. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift tag at home.

Step One. From the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tag & Toppers die, die cut the small tag out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two. Choose a couple of the snowflakes from the Christmas Collection stamp set. Apply Emboss It Ink to the snowflakes and stamp randomly on the tag, reapply ink as needed, you’ll need a total of fourteen snowflakes. Sprinkle Forever Platinum Modern Gilding Powder over the stamped images. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut a 2 1/2″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament, die cut the ornament out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the ornament. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the ornament. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Five. From the Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament, die cut the joy word out of White Soft Finish Cardstock and black cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the white Joy word. Sprinkle Forever Platinum Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the word. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Six. Die cut the Snowflake from the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the snowflake. Sprinkle Forever Platinum Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the snowflake. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Seven. Adhere the ornament to the stitched circle. Foam square the stitched circle 1/4″ from the right and 1 1/8″ from the bottom of the tag.

Step Eight. Adhere the snowflake to the middle of the ornament. Adhere the Joy embossed word slightly to the right overtop of the black cardstock Joy word, this will create a shadow in behind the embossed Joy word. Use foam squares to adhere the Joy word to the bottom right corner of the tag.

Step Nine. Tie a bow at the top of the tag with a piece of black twine. To finish off the tag, use White Craft Drops to add dots to the snowflake as desired.

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

Love You To The Moon

June 20, 2020

I think now more than ever we need to reach out to those we love.  Not for any special reason, just to share love.  I thought this might be a fun way to do it! We get to make a beautiful bright moon inside the ornament, create a stencil so we have a sweet spray of stars and we get to stamp a super special message.

Here’s how you can do it, too…..

Instructions:

Form a 5 x 7” tent fold card base from navy cardstock.

Cut a 4 x 6” panel from navy cardstock.  Die cut the Star Spray from scrap cardstock and use as a stencil.  Lightly stencil the stars across the panel with Distress Oxide Brushed Corduroy.

Die cut the flourished ornament and the flourished moon from white cardstock which has had Double Sided Adhesive adhered to the front side.

Remove the release paper and one at a time thermal emboss the flourished ornament with Forever Platinum and then the flourished moon with Brushed Silver. So nice and bright!

Stamp the sentiment (Awwww!) on white cardstock with Night Sky ink and die cut with the smallest Fitted Rectangle.  Die cut the smallest Stitched Rectangle from navy cardstock and adhere them together. 

Mount the gilded ornament and moon as shown on the stenciled panel (the flourishes can hang over the edge of the panel!).  Mount the sentiment panel on the panel with 3D adhesive squares overlapping the ornament.

Mount the stenciled panel on the card base with 3D adhesive squares.

Send to someone you love!

Be kind, be calm, stay safe.  You are loved!
Happy creating, Suzanne

Love You To The Moon & Back Tag

October 5, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m excited to be sharing with you my Love you to the Moon & Back Tag which features a variety of dies and stamps from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from the Planner Essentials and Els van de Burgt Studio.

See my step-by-step below –– I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two. Place the Butterflies & Stars stencil on the tag and using a blending tool with foam, blend Fossilized Amber Distress Ink through the stencil. Move the stencil as desired around the tag and blend ink through it.

Step Three. Die cut the Ornament from the Love, Joy & Peace Ornament out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the top portion of the ornament off.

Step Four. Die cut a 2 1/4″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply a sticky note a 1/8″ in on the left hand side of the stitched circle. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Moon & Back sentiment from the Soar Collection stamp set and stamp in the middle of the circle. Make sure that the majority of the moon gets stamped onto the sticky note.

Step Five. Die cut the Star spray from the Butterflies & Stars Sprays out of a piece of Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. You’ll need seven stars from the spray.

Step Six. Adhere the ornament to the stitched circle. Foam square the stitched circle to the right hand side of the tag.

Step Seven. Adhere the three of the stars around the Moon & Back sentiment. Adhere the other four stars as desired on the tag.

Step Eight. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine to the top of the tag.

Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Love you to the Moon & Back Tag.
