FaveCraft Blog Hop
I Love blog hops. These are one of my favorite thing to do here on my blog. Beside Videos. Thanks so much for join me here today.. hope you stop back soon and become a follower of my blog.
Tag - make for buy one - Need to learn how to make a tag. See my "how To" video on Youtube
Stamps: Scrolls Work "snowman quote", Hero Arts "Swirls", Tim Holtz's Snowman, Small Snowflake (unknown),
Memories Mists: Blue and purple
ribbon: small red and fiber for the top
White embossing powder, embossing ink
wire for the snowman's arms - or you can leave the arms on the snowman...
Glue Dots: Pop-up and the new Micro dots...
PPA from UsArtquest
Start by spray two different shade of Memories Mists from Stewart Superior. I used a blue and purple Mists.
Then I stamp the "Swirl" stamp using my embossing ink and embossed with white embossing powder. If you don't know how to emboss - I have a How to video on my website. Click here to get there. it's in the studio page. Please check out all my how to video - I have about 30 of them...
Next I add some glitter to the whole tag. I used my PPA from UsArtQuest. I used my finger to paint the PPA on the whole tag then sprinkled on the glitter. set aside to dry...
Sorry this photo is blurry. I did not notice untile I post to my computer. and that's just too late to take a second photo. Sorry again... Stamp your snow man with blue ink, cut out the image. I used a black pen to add a little details to the snowman. I used a little ribbon for his scarf and wire for the arms.... Glue Dots has Micro Dot's now and they are perfect for the ribbon.
Bottle Cap. First off you need to smash the cap. I use my Sizzix machine to do this. But you can use a rubber hammer - or just give to your husband tell him to do it..
Then I stamps a small snowflake onto white cardstock and punched out with a circle punch. A one inch circle punch work great.
Adhere your circle snowflake to the bottom of the bottle cap. I use Crystal Lacquer to adhere the cardstock to the bottom of the cap. Just a small amount is all you need. give this about 10 minute to dry a little
after your embellishments (bottle cap) as dried for a few minutes. Add more 3-D Crystal Lacquer to the top of the snowflake. While your Crystal Lacquer is still wet add a little clear glitter. set aside to dry. this will take about 45 minutes or so...
When using Crystal Lacquer I start on the edges of the piece and fill in the center.
I stamped the snowman quote from Scrolls Work stamps onto white cardstock and cut the word out.
Now its time to start adhere together. I used Glue Dots - Pop up for the snowman and the bottle cap.
I used Glue Dots NEW micro dots to adhere the small word from the snowman quote.
add your fiber and snowflake charm.
Here is a second tag I made this week. This one is really sweet. All the stamps (SantaMoon, and Dec 25th) are both from Scrolls Work Stamps. The list I made from hand, but a small piece of paper with black pen names. Ink the edge to look like it's been well loved by Santa. I used this amazing new product called "Sparkly Fluff" on Santa Hat, I have been having problem with this product. But Tim Holtz just used it in one of his project and he used Acrylic Paint to adhere it. I painted the hat with Red Acrylic Paint and while the paint was still wet I added the "Sparkly Fluff". and it's work well Thanks Tim Holtz! I painted the SantaMoon with Twinkling H2o's except for his hat.
Now Hop back the Favecraft and see all the other amazing project that are post. but please become a follower of mine stop back soon. lots of exciting stuff going on in my life soon.. Can't tell yet, but soon... Has to do with CHA winter show this upcoming year...
