Post#111 Love Heart Theme – With Love Tag

I created this tag base using the same technique as the one in Post 109…the embossing folder used in this one is called Diamonds by Kaisercraft….after embossing I created the watercolour effect using distress inks..
I wanted this tag to have quite a bit of delicate layers so I used a large punched flower and a die cut stitched border circle and attached them to the tag…then I added a bit of gold string…and finally two banners layers…the top layer banner has the die cut word ‘with love’ on it as well as a few heart sequins….
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#109 Love Heart Theme Tag

After making some cards and tags I realised that they all had one thing in common….Love Hearts…So I made a few more and decided to share them with you over the next week as a theme… 🙂
Once I die cut the tag,I inked an embossing folder(Honeycomb by Kaisercraft) with pigment ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder…this works perfect for me because I do not own any background stamps…
I then created the watercolour effect using distress inks…simply dab some ink on a small piece of acetate and spritz it with a bit of water…transfer this watered ink directly onto the paper….it becomes more beautiful when two colours combine to create a new one….
Once the tag was dry I attached the three die cut hearts in the center…stamped the sentiment on a banner,added a few punched stars and finally added the ribbons…
Hope you liked this tag…there are a couple more that I’ll be sharing with you soon…

Post#108 Double Flip Giftbox

I knew I was definitely going to make this box as soon as I saw a post by Caroline on  her blog called CraftyCarolineCreates…..I have added her tutorial video below my picture in case you’d like to see how this box is made…
It’s a great size rectangular box….and the two flip lids meeting in the center is the main attraction of this box….it looks complicated but its not so do try this box out….I’m sure you’ll be happy with the results…
I used plain black cardstock to create the base of the box and a printed kraft cardstock for the lid…once the box was ready I simply attached a flower punched pompom made out of brown paper and a couple of banners on it for decoration…
I love this box and it’s been sitting on my desk ever since I made it….Hope you liked it too…

Post#107 Whimsical Dandelions Simple Card

Every now and then I feel stuck and am unable to get any ideas…usually browsing the internet or going through the blogs of my favorite bloggers get me started…but sometimes nothing works…and I just stop creating and start cleaning,organising or resetting my craft things…and while doing that I put aside something I haven’t used in a while and work on a very simple project using it…
This card has been created using the Whimsical Dandelions embossing folder…I just added a blue rhinestone in the center of each dandelion and added a layered banner with the sentiment stamped on it…
The card was ready within minutes…and the best part is that I was able to get ‘un-stuck’ and move on to create lots of other things… 🙂
Hope you liked this simple card…

Post#104 – Thank You So Much Tag

A few days back I tried out the gold glitter splatter technique on a card(Post#97) and decided to try it out again on a tag….
This tag has two 2″ wide layers and the tops were created by punching with a tag topper punch…..for the base tag I simply rounded the corners and for the top tag I kept the length about half of the base tag and punched using a banner punch…from the left over section I die cut another small banner…
Once the bases were ready I added the glitter and let that dry…Later I stamped the top layer and added the small die cut banner on the bottom layer with a heart stamped on it…In the end I added the ribbon…
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#102 – Self Closing Angled Box

I am a big fan of boxes and bags which don’t need a fiddly attachment in order to close and open them…..so when I saw this tutorial for a self closing box by Dawn Griffith…I had to try it out…
At first I thought that with all these angles it must be a bit tricky but I was surprised at how very easy it is to make this box…and you can make 2 boxes from a sheet of 12″ x 12″ cardstock…
I kept the decorations simple and just added two banners and stamped on the top one and added a butterfly punch..
Hope you liked this box….I also hope you will try this one out….

Post#98 – Tiny Gift Box

While searching for projects and things to make with the Tag Topper Punch, an image of these really cute boxes came up but the link took me to the tutorial in a language I couldn’t understand much…..Thanks Google Translate, I was able to make these tiny goody gift boxes easily….
I used a light blue printed paper to make these boxes…and then decorated them with a a few punched out pieces and Kaisercraft Collectables die cuts…I added a banner with a sentiment as well..
To close the boxes at the top I simply used a brown string and tied a bow…
Hope you liked these…

Post#96 – Small Tent Box

This is one of the cutest boxes that I’ve made….and yes I made this by following a tutorial by Sam Donald…it’s great for holding a few chocolates or treats or a small item…
It’s a triangle shaped box that opens at the top and the outside case/cover shaped like a tent closes the box nicely…and that means there are no ribbons or other things required to close the box…
I chose a plain grey cardstock for the box and a green and grey printed  paper for the cover…to decorate the box I made a narrow silver banner and added a stamped and punched flower and added the sentiment on a circle at the top…
Hope you liked how my box turned out…

Post#91 Paris card using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

I am very excited to share my third project using the Cityscapes stamp set…The cityscape stamp I used for this card was of Paris….
For this card I chose a greyish silver glitter cardstock for the card base…I stamped the Paris cityscape on vellum paper and flipped it over to colour in the sky and the buildings with distress inks…then I attached this vellum section to a polaroid die cut…I also attached a glitter banner with a vellum banner on the polaroid frame to add the sentiment…
This card didn’t need much else so I simply attached the polaroid frame to the cards base and added a few silver star sequins to it…
Hope you liked this card as much as I do…Thanks for stopping by to take a look…
