Mixed Media Monday (using the Tag Kit)

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to be sharing a mixed media canvas I created using the tag kit. I really stepped outside of my comfort zone with this kit.

This month’s card kit features the wooden Julie Nutting dolls and tags. Here is the kit:

 

So, I have never worked with these before. However, they are great for my niece. I created a canvas for her room. Here is my canvas:

I used the mermaid doll for the canvas. For the mixed media, I used items from past mixed media kits. I used the texture paste, watercolors and seashells from past Tres Jolie Kits (they can be found here).

Here are some close ups of the canvas:

I have never used watercolors on wood, so I learned a few things. Use less water to prevent color bleed. I got a bit of it, but hey I can live with it.  For the skin tone, I used my water color pencils. I think it turned out pretty decent for my first time.

The saying behind the frame is a 3×4 card from the Prima Zella Teal line (from my stash). The color was perfect for this.

For the background, I used the rust effect paste from a past kit in Fantasy. I used the powder blue to cover the canvas, then filled in with the purple and turquoise until I was happy.

The flowers and cheesecloth are from my stash. I filled in the floral cluster with some seashells and the other wooden accessories that came with the doll. I added a few melange pebbles, then lightly dusted over the flowers with the purple rust effects paint and called it done.

Gift ATC’s with Ginny

Hello again!

Today I’m sharing with you my ATC’s created with the Card, Tags and More Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

These were really fun to create with. There are loads of ATC/tags to alter in this kit, one for everyone in your family, perfect as little cute sentiment gifts just to let people know your thinking of them….

I have two sets to show you, a floral Shabby Chic set which incorporated flowers from the January Scrapbook Kit too and another set using just the Cards Tags and More kit, which is more striking to look at.

Lets have a look….

 

 

 

I used one of the large ‘Classic Cards’ Wooden ATC’s for my background base and then used the ‘Lovely Prints’ set layered up over the top.
I used 3 of these, one I left as it was showing the print pattern and the other two I covered with some of the Art Paper.

 

The large background tag I added some Prima Graphite texture paste stencilling.

 

I used the 7gypsies adhesive doilies wrapped around the sides of the ATC.
I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape around the ATC too from my stash.

 

The embellishment clusters used the flowers and resin icons arranged over the ribbon I tied around the ATC.
The scrabble tiles were from my stash as were the druzzy stones.

 

I attached 2 of the Velvet Trinkets to dangle at the bottom of the tags.

 

The leaves were from the flowers sets in the Scrapbook Kit.

 

Now to show you the second set…. shabby chic ATC’s

 

 

 

 

This set is using the small plain wooden ATC’s which ive lightly brushed over with some gesso.

 

I used some small cut up pieces of the floral chipboard piece in the Scrapbook kit painted with gesso and built the flowers up over that.

 

In the background you can see the I have used a roughly torn oblong of Art Paper.
The ATC’s were finished off with a decorative tile and Nuvo Crystal drops.

 

I used small wooden sentiment titles from my stash to personise them into sweet little messages to gift to dear ones and friends.

 

The last thing I did to them was to rub over some Prima Opal Magics to the edge of the flowers, wooden title words chippy and the tile.. this adds a little glimmer to the whole thing. This was from a previous kit.

 

The flowers are a mixture from the Scrapbook kit and the Card Tag and More kit.

 

 

Cards, Tags and More Kit:

Prima Marketing – Printery Mulberry Paper 6 x6 paper pad
Prima Marketing Wooden ATC Cards-Lovely Prints
Prima Marketing Wooden ATC Cards – Classic Cards
Prima Marketing–Velvet baubles Romance Novel
Prima Marketing-Art Tiles Printery
Prima Marketing-Resin in a box Keys
Darice -Rose Flowers Parade Neutrals

Card and Tag Kit Spotlight

Hello!

Today we are showcasing our Cards, Tags, and More kit for December. This month the kit features a 6 x 6 paper pad from the Mintay Christmas Stories line, coordinating red and green cardstock, two packages of Creative Embellishments sentiments, and from Kaisercraft, three lovely mini flower packs and some white pearls embellishments. Take a look at the picture below:

And, here’s what the DT came up with using the kit this month:

Kim made a beautiful card and wine holder set:

Rae made a couple of cards, cutting out that darling little deer for the focal points of the cards.

And Rae also made this fun tag set, focusing on the red and blue color combo with those papers.

The card/tag kit has plenty of paper for all kinds of small projects. Even after you use up all of the embellishments from the kit, you will have paper left over to use with your own embellishments! It’s a great deal!

And, we still have a few kits available, so be sure to snag one HERE, if you haven’t already!

Peace, Love, and Joy Tags with Rae

Hello there!

It’s time to start making tags, if that’s something you do for Christmas! 🙂 Today I am sharing a few tags I made with the December Cards, Tags, and More kit.

My inspiration for creating this tag trio was the Creative Embellishments chipboard set that came in the kit: Peace Love and Joy titles. I kept the design mostly the same for all three tags: I hand cut some of the red cardstock from the kit to make tag shapes, and then cut some of the Mintay  Christmas Stories papers slightly smaller for layers for the base of the tags. I distressed the edges of both layers, then inked the edges of the patterned paper layers.

I also cut out doilies (Prima) from the Mintay papers- one for each tag.

I also cut out some leafy swirls using a Cheery Lynne die. I cut those and added them to peek out from under the Kaisercraft flowers.

Under each of the pieces of chipboard, I added three little cut outs from the Mintay paper and fanned them to give a nice base for the chipboard titles.

I treated the Creative chipboard pieces with some white and gold embossing powders.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Merry Christmas Deer Cards with Rae

Hello! Today I am sharing a couple of cards I have made with the December Card, Tags, and More kit, featuring Mintay Christmas Stories papers.

I created two  6X6 cards using a similar design.

Here they are:

I love that cute little deer on the papers, so I cut two of them out for these cards. This paper is perfect for fussy cutting! I also cut out some of the red poinsettias as well to add to the floral part of the cards.

I used a 6 X 6 piece of paper for the back layer of the cards, then cut two sheets of the 6 X 6 paper down to 5 3/4 X 5 3/4. Then I ripped the paper that was going on the bottom diagonally to create a “half and half” design. I distressed all of the edges, then glued these layers together, leaving room under the top layer to tuck in some lace (from my stash).

Next, I added some stenciling (snow “dot” pattern) with some glittery paste, and added the Merry Christmas titles.

On this card, I used the red paper and a die to cut the title, and added some of the Kaisercraft pearls to accent the title.

For this card, I added the Creative Embellishments chipboard from the kit. I embossed it with Stampendous Shabby Green embossing powder from my stash.

I cut out a fancy snowflake with an old Memory Box dies, and put it in the middle of the card, then added a larger flower from my stash, added the deer to the middle and added some of the small Kaisercraft roses from the kit.

After that, I tucked in the poinsettias that I fussy cut, then added more of the little Kaisercraft roses.

Here’s a couple of closeups from both cards showing the floral cluster/line.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Keep checking back all month to see what the rest of the design team has made with all of the kits!

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.
