Happy birthday, little guy!

Hello Crafty Friends,

I have something new to share with you today: a birthday gift for my sweet friend’s 3-year-old son.

The two main elements are Ricky Goes Fishing by Tiddly Inks and the background is Birds Go By by Phindy’s.

As you will see, I first colored the background image, colored Ricky with Copic C7 and added foam adhesive for the cut out piece. Also added natural hemp cord as his ‘fishing line’.

Elizabeth Craft Designs – October Designers’ Challenge: Tags

DSCF4548_2

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today is the last day of October and that means it is our Designers’ Challenge at Elizabeth Craft Designs. Our design team was asked to create projects using the wonderful Elizabeth Craft Designs Tags & More die sets.

What I love most about the new tag dies is that they are all open ended, meaning that their length is really up to me, I can extend them, fold them over, extend more or even turn the die set around. Just wonderful possibilities.

Christmas Tags with Elizabeth Craft Designs

DSCF4380_2

Good morning crafty friends,

I would like to share my new Christmas tags with you. Project ideas are endless with so many gorgeous Elizabeth Craft Designs products to choose from. All the wonderful dies, Slik Microfine Glitter, embossing folders and the great Peel-off Stickers. Today I challenged myself to create something that is easy to recreate using just a handful of products.

As always, I hope you have a nice cup of coffee or tea in your hand so you can sit back and enjoy my tutorial.

This is how you can create your very own Christmas tags:

1. Cut the pearl, purple and gold metallic cardstocks at 3.25″ wide x 6″ high, 2 of each color. These cuts will serve as the base for our tags.

2. Using the new Tags & More 2 – Deco die set, position the large tag die over 1 set of metallic tag base and secure with a piece of temporary craft tape. Using the Snowflakes die set, position one of the snowflakes onto the tag base and also secure with a piece of temporary craft tape. Die cut all at once. Positioning the snowflakes on the different metallic cardstocks in different positions will give each tag its unique design.

3. Using the Merry Christmas die and the new Tags & More 2 – Deco die set, die cut 3 sentiments, 3 sets of corner pieces and 3 reinforcements for each tag from complimenting metallic cardstocks.

4. Cut clear acetate 3″ wide x 3″ high and adhere one between each set of tags over the slowflake die cuts.

The photo below will show you all of the die cut pieces for 3 slightly different Christmas tags.

5. Finish each tag with a white ribbon, Glitter Dots and Glitter Borders.

As always, I would like to thank you for following my tutorial and I hope that you enjoyed reading it as much as I did creating it.

Hugs, Rita
