Also my post for TIOT tomorrow will include a tutorial for easy painting using Creative Inspirations Shimmer Paints.
Speaking of blog candy i need to get mine up but i have yet to collect it up and get pic for ya!
i have a simple but pretty project for today’s Just Buggin’ challenge – gift tags! This week Samantha has challenged us to use stamps with our cricut cuts. one of my swaps i am in is for valentine goodie bags so i decided to go with some tags instead of bag toppers for this one:
i started by cutting TWO tags – 1 white and 1 red. then using the shadow feature i cut a black one. Next i took the red tags and cut the top & bottoms off – this way i have a label that is a perfect fit. to jazz up the white layer i stamped some hearts with versamark and covered them with some awesome holographic embossing powder from ranger. it has a rainbow shimmer effect. Next i edged the white tag with red ink using my foam blending tool and then i lined the white and red pieces with crystal ice stickles. Ice stickles also have a holographic look to them. i am making goodies bags for kids so i stamped friend on the tag (studio G of course) and then added a little poly clay embellie. an eyelet and ribbon tied with wax thread finishes them off! the layers are attached with foam tape to add some dimension.
If you like bling, shimmer & shine be sure to catch my TIOT post tomorrow!!
Hope your week is off to a GREAT start!!!!
