Bottle Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

 Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of holiday tags and cards.   Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a holiday bottle Tag and Card set. These were very simple, yet fun to make.

How about some close ups:

For the both pieces, I used the same papers. I cut the bases out of the green cardstock. I used 2 separate sheets of paper for the layers. I used the same process for both. The bottom layer is patterned paper, then cardstock, then another sheet of patterned paper.

The chipboard titles are from the kit and I just heat embossed them with some red tinsel embossing powder from my stash. The white flower and balls are from my stash.

For the top of the bottle tag, I used my 1 3/4 punch for the hole. It’s a good size for almost any bottle. I embelleshed the top with pearls for the kit. It’s hard to see, but I also used some crystal stickles on both to give it a bit of shimmer.

Today’s tip: The dimensions for the bottle tag are 3 inches wide x 9 inches lone. The top is scored at 3 inches. Look for a video later this month.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Mixed Media Monday

Hey everyone Kim here, today I am sharing my project I made with with Mixed Media Kit. If you don’t know about our mixed media kits, let me tell you about them. The kit is filled with not only mediums, but a project so you can use our kits right out of the box.

Here is our November Mixed Media kit. It is filled with the new Icing paste medium from Prima.  It also includes 3 sizes of embroidery hoops and canvas. You can create your own mixed media hoops. You can subscribe to our kits here.

Check out the kit:

Here is what I created using the kit:

How about some close ups:

Lets talk about the background first. After I put the canvas on the hoops and decided on which side I wanted to work on, I took the stencil and the icing paste paste to make the background. Once that was done, I began deciding how I wanted to arrange my hoops.

Once I had the arrangement set up I glued my hoops together. While the hoops were drying, I heat embossed my chipboard piece.

I then decided to add a doily behind my frame before I attached it. I just wanted something peeking out behind it.

Now it was time to start embellishing my hoops. I moved my flowers all around until I was happy with the groupings. I made sure I used some dimensional tape under some flowers so they pop off the project. Plus it makes it easier to tuck bits and pieces under them.

After all the big embellishment were done, I started adding all the little details that really make your project. I used a butterfly and some floral ribbon from my stash. The sentiments are also from my stash.

Hope you liked my little explanation of my Mixed Media Monday project.

Live in the Moment

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I’m sharing a feminine layout created with the November scrapbook kit. The kit features papers from AB Studio. For a full list of kit contents please check here.

This kit is so versatile. You can create masculine or feminine layouts with it. It’s full of texture and colors that can go both ways. Here is the kit:

 

Here is my layout create with it:

I went with the soft pink, yellow and green colors from the papers.

Here are some close ups:

I used the mask from the kit to add more texture to the background. This paper was also great for fuzzy cutting elements. I used a lot of those pieces here too.

More of the fussy cut elements, along with the lace, resin feather and metal clock from the kit.  You can see a bit more of the stenciling as well.

There are some great tags to fussy cut as well. I used one here, along with the fuzzy cut leave elements. More lace and a resin clock from my stash.  I added pink and white splatters to complete the look.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

I have to admit, cards and tags weren’t my thing to begin with, but I am really getting into them now. Especially using these kits. Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of tags and cards. It also have a set of cards with envelopes.  Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a Birthday Tag and Card set.

How about some close ups:

I cut the tag out of the copper cardstock in the kit. Then I created a couple of layers of paper and cardstock and more paper. I fussy cut a few flowers from a sheet of the paper and added it in between my layers. I also added some of the tickets from the kit on top of the layers

The chipboard title and bling are from the kit and I just painted it with black gesso. The oval from is from my stash. I used a couple layers of black gesso, then randomly sprinkled some pink embossing powder on it.

For the mini card, it was done pretty much the same as the tag. I used the copper cardstock as a base, added some layers of paper and embellished with flowers, bling and a frame from my stash. Instead of using black gesso on the frame I used white. I still added the pink embossing powder. The limited edition title is also from my stash.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to follow us on all our various Social Media outlets.

Challenge Monday

Happy Monday everyone, it’s Kim here. I’m back with another edition of Challenge Monday. This month is a layout sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch:

Although this is a layout sketch, it can easily be adapted for cards, tags or even a canvas.

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used a photo of dh and I on our anniversary this year. Man where did the past 24 yrs go? How about some close ups?

I started with a 2 sheets of the Prima paper. I cut the busier sheet and layered it on the light pink sheet of paper. I distressed the edges of the paper and did some light stenciling on the background.

I used the large trim piece and heat embossed it with lindy’s caesar’s gold embossing powder. I also layered paper and that cardboard from from the flower pack under my photo. I popped the layers up with foam tape.

I used some of the lace as a border and did a small cluster of the flowers. The title is from the 12×12 chipboard. I heat embossed that with the Lindy’s as well. I also added a small floral cluster in the bottom left hand corner.

Here is my little tip for the week: I have found that Lindy’s Caesar’s Gold embossing powder is a great match for this kit. If you have it in your stash try it out.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create based on the sketch. Don’t forget to load your entries in the sketch challenge folder here , so you will be eligible for the prize.

“Paradise” Watercolor Canvas for Mixed Media Monday

Hey everyone Kim here, today I am sharing my project I made with with Mixed Media Kit. If you don’t know about our mixed media kits, let me tell you about them. The kit is filled with not only mediums, but a project so you can use our kits right out of the box.

Here is our October Mixed Media kit. It is filled with Watercolor mediums from Prima.  Watercolors are the it thing right now and our kit is the perfect size for you to try them out. You can subscribe to our kits here.

Check out the kit:

Here is what I created using the kit:

How about some close ups:

Lets talk about the background first. I took a stencil and some modeling paste to make the brick background. Once that was done, I began working with the watercolors.

I worked with the blue and green colors in the palette because I wanted to keep my beachy theme going in the background. I used less water in some areas to keep the color more opaque. In other areas, I used lots of water and dabbed a bit with a wet wipe to lift the color.

I also added lots of water to make sure the colors ran in between the bricks. For my frame, I went over it with the white pearl paint to give it a bit of shimmer. The fence was painted with the soft satin.

All the chipboard got a coat of clear gesso before I used the green watercolor (except the title)on it. It a couple of coats, but I do like the end result.  I also used some metallic rub-ons on the background, instead of stamps. I like the way the metallic blends in with the shimmer of the watercolors and paint.

I used the pink watercolor on my title and added some flowers from the kit. Then I used a few different colors from the watercolor palette to add some splashes to my canvas and called it done.

Hope you liked my little explanation of my Mixed Media Monday project.

Here is my weekly tip: When using chipboard, its always good to cover it with gesso before altering it. I like using clear, that way it doesn’t alter the color of paint or other medium I am applying to it.

We still have some kits available, so stop by here and subscribe. We also have individual kits for sale here.
