Video: Gift Tag Greetings: Holiday Cheer Part 5: Watercolor Shakers

Hi Everyone!  For this week's tag,  I'm using vibrant watercolors along with shimmer to make a pretty background for a shaker.

 

Blog 2

This is a fun project, because if you aren't completely comfortable with your watercolors yet, you can just have fun with color and not worry about if it's perfect or not.  

Insta

I'm using these really pretty Solid Confetti Dots from Kat Scrappiness for my shaker that give a gorgeous iridescent shine.  They pick up whatever color your background is which is great for coordinating if you don't have that perfect sequin color for your shaker mix.

I have a  video below that shows you how I created these tags.  You can also scroll down to get links to all the products I used in the video to create the tag shape.  Ellen Hutson still carries the Traditional Tag Stax die I used which is great news, although it has in parentheses that it will be retiring.  I highly recommend this set.  I reach for it all the time when I'm creating tags.  Enjoy!

Foiling is such an easy way to make your projects stand out and it's even easier with patterned toner sheets.

More Chocolate Lover's Card Kit Projects

Hi Everyone!

It's Heidi and I have a few more projects featuring the new Kat Scrappiness Chocolate Lover's Card Kit.   This is such an easy kit to work with and so many options!

I created this tag using the Wonky Wavy Hearts die addition along with other supplies from the main kit.

After die cutting the largest heart from white, I created a shaker opening by die cutting the two smaller hearts together using the red cardstock.

I filled the big heart with some of the heart-shaped sequins from the kit and closed up the shaker window with vellum and foam tape and placed that on top.

I punched out the "love" from the white tag that's included and added that along the bottom

For this card, I covered the front of a plain notecard with some of the patterned paper included in the kit.  I opted for a white chocolate bar version this time.  To stamp the chocolate bar, I used the white cardstock as the base and only stamped the second and third layer stamps.  I used Hero Arts Soft Vanilla for the 2nd stamp and Memento Desert Sand for the 3rd stamp.  The doilies and some die cut pieces frame the chocolate bar.

Another clean and simple card using the rich chocolate-brown cardstock and a glimmery heart sticker.  Just a note, if you're looking for ink ideas to stamp your chocolate bar, the Kat Scrappiness shop now carries the Altenew Coffee Break Mini Ink Pad Cube set.  Perfect browns for all the layers!

For this card, I used the negative of the largest Wonky Wavy Stitched Heart Die along with the patterned paper that comes with the main kit.  I'm saving the "positive" for another project.......I added some shimmer from a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen to the "sweet" sentiment die cut along with some sequins and a heart from the die cut pack.

Be sure to head over to the Kat Scrappiness shop to get your card kit while they are still available.  Feel free to use my coupon code Heidi10 for 10% off your purchase.  Thanks so much for joining me and have a great day!

Card Kit Project: I Love You More Than Chocolate

 

Hi Everyone!

It's Heidi and I have a clean and simple project using the new Chocolate Lover's Card Kit and Chocolate Lover's stamp set from Kat Scrappiness.  This kit is full of all kinds of fun products and the chocolate bar is so realistic-looking with all the layers!

Be sure to download the key for stamping the layers of the chocolate bar and wrapper from the Kat Scrappiness shop.  It's really easy using a stamp platform!  I used 3 kinds of brown ink from Lawn Fawn.

A quick trick for adhering the tiny heart sequins from the kit is to spread glue on a Post-It note and run the back of the sequin through it with a pick up tool.  You get just enough glue on the embellishment without it seeping around the edges.  I used RangerMulti-Medium Matte because it dries clear.

Be sure to check out all the great products included in this awesome card kit--more projects to come!

Kat Scrappiness Design Team Project: Peace on Earth

 

Hi Everyone!  I'm here with a card featuring the Pine Tree Border Die by Kat Scrappiness.

I started off with cutting the pine trees from white cardstock.

I added some shimmer by pressing the die cut into some Versamark Ink.......

 

...then heat embossing it with shimmery Holographic Embossing Powder from Ranger.

Next, I stamped the a sentiment from Avery Elle's Snowflakes stamp set in Versamark Ink just above where I planned to put the tree line.

I heat embossed that in white embossing powder.

For the stars, I used Carta Bella's Christmas Sky Stencil and pressed a Versamark Ink pad onto the card front being sure to not go over the sentiment with the ink.  I then heat embossed that with some more holographic embossing powder.

I created a blended galaxy sky using Distress Inks and wiped the excess from the embossing with a paper towel.

I attached the trees with some thin strips of foam tape along the bottom of the card.

Some glimmery sequins from Kat's Snowflakes Kisses II sequin mix completed the card.

          

Thank you so much for joining me today.  I have all the supplies linked below that can be found at the Kat Scrappiness shop

Video: November 2017 Hip Kit Club Kit and My Plans for December Journaling

Hi Everyone!

I wanted a few more Christmas products for my projects this year and the November Hip Kit club kit is chock full of great supplies. 

IMG_7337

Best of all, I just discovered it matches the colors in my Happy Memory Planner that I'll be using to document all the great memories of the Christmas season!  I really like that it has the Happy Planner format, but with added prompts for memory keeping.  

 This is a look inside the planner.  The calendar pages come blank, so I added the numbers and stamped the month and year.  I don't do a December journal every year, but for 2018, I wanted to try doing a memory keeping project in a planner.  I thought I would start with doing December journaling, then in January, continue on with keeping track of stories throughout the months.
