Post#159 Tea Bag Pouch

Tea is getting fancier these days….and so many flavours too….
This tea bag pouch is very simply an envelope created by using the WRMK 1 2 3 punch board…you just measure the tea bag and look for the correct size envelope measurements on the board…
But since I would like it to be a bit special when I gift it to someone,I have decorated it with a ribbon and string and a few other thing like the butterfly die cut and the stamped banner underneath…
I’m quite happy with how my envelope pouch turned out….Hope you liked it too…

Post#157 You Are Pretty Darn Amazing Card

I realised I had a lot of butterfly stamps,so I took them all out of my stamps folder and quickly created a background using those stamps…
I stamped all the butterflies with Ranger Java Bean dye ink on white cardstock and coloured them in…..
For this card I used an orange card base and and extra layer/mat in yellow and then added the top layer….on the top layer I have used a strip of brown glitter cardstock on one side and also the die cut word you from the same glitter cardstock….this word die has been placed above the sentiment that has been stamped on a banner made from gold cardstock…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#135 Merry Christmas Green & Red Shaker Card

I made this shaker card using the WRMK fuse tool and a photo pocket…the card is not bulky at all which means that it can be posted normally with no extra postage or special packaging..

I started with a piece of green cardstock 5×12″ and scored the long side at 4″ and 8″….this is so that one section gets folded in to create the backing section for the shaker pocket….which also means that the section between the two score lines would be the front of the card and had to be die cut for the shaker to show through….I also die cut and embossed a thin frame from red card stock to go around the die cut space…

Once the shaker pocket was filled with sequins,I stamped an image of a scarecrow with white ink and attached the pocket at the back of the die cut space and glued in the backing section of the card….all that was left was to attach the stamped sentiment and the card was ready…

I’m quite pleased with how this card has turned out….hope you liked it too…

Post#134 Christmas Giftbag

This gift bag has been made by following a Bag Tutorial by Sam Hammond Donald….it is a great size bag which is excellent for gifting jewelry etc…
I made this bag from a red and white Christmas paper with large numbers printed on it and attached an embossed red front panel to it….I stamped the sentiment on a white strip of cardstock and punched the edges using the banner punch…I added another strip in gold cardstock underneath…
Once the bag was ready I lightly sponged all the edges with red ink..
What I like most about this bag is the technique to close the box using a ribbon….you have to see the tutorial video to learn that…
Hope you liked it…

Post#130 – Christmas Shaker Tag

Today I’m sharing a Christmas tag with a small shaker element…..I think that gives the tag a bit of a festive feel….
I started by die cutting the base of the tag using labels eight nesting dies from spellbinders….I then die cut about 6 small circle frames from white cardstock and stuck them one on top of another near the base of the tag….then put in a few sequins and sealed it using an acetate circle…and finally die cut another frame in blue and glued it on top….
Once the shaker section was ready I quickly attached the stamped sentiment and a few sequins and pearls …I glued a 3/4″ red circle and a 1/2″ white one near the top of the tag and and punched a hole for the ribbon…
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#126 – Christmas Bottle Tag

I knew I was definitely going to make a few bottle tags for Christmas this year…here’s the first one I made…I decided to use a printed sentiment that came with my Christmas cardstock pack instead of stamping…so the making this tag was a much faster process than usual…
The base is made from plain green card stock which has been given a flag shape at the base using the WRMK banner punch board….I then added a light green layer…and on top of that I added 3 strips of printed paper and punched both sides of each one with the banner punch…
Lastly I added a printed red layer on the top…it also has gold string attached underneath…
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#122 – Reindeer & Stars Card

I’ve started my Chirstmas cards with a simple one this year….and I used one of my favourite stamps for this card….I love this flying reindeer stamp from Hot Off The Press Inc.
I chose a plain blue card base and a white top layer for this card….on the top layer I used the stars stencil with blue ink and covered about 3/4th of the space….I then stamped the reindeer stamp in a way that it seems to be flying among the stars…
I stamped the sentiment on a white banner and added a wider blue banner underneath….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#120 – Birthday Shaker Card

Shaker cards seem to be a trend that is still going….the earlier versions were quite bulky so I didn’t make many and kept looking for ideas and trying out various ways to make this process as simple and less bulky as possible…
Using the fuse tool to create shaker pockets is a great way to make shaker cards but today I have tried out another simple way to create this card…
So I started with die cutting about seven of the circle frames and stuck only six of them straight onto the top layer of the card….its makes a sort of a well where I put in a  few sequins…after that I die cut an acetate circle the same size as the frame and glued it on top…then I attached the last remaining circle frame on top and the shaker section was ready…
I adhered the die cut word happy on top of the shaker and stamped the word birthday on a banner and attached it under…
I really like how this card turned out…hope you do to…
