Paint Chip Gift Tags

 

Oh, come on, you had to see this one coming from a mile away!

I used paint chips, sample paper, and dies.

I order envelopes and paper from a company called Paper-Papers. With every order, you get a random sample pack of scraps. I LOVE THIS! Would I really order a pack of 25 sheets of all of the colors? No. But the scraps are great for accents and projects like this. Paper-Papers even puts a label listing the contents on the sample pack, so you know what you are using.

Brushed Silver, Malmero Perle White, Stardream Metallics Azalea, Dolomite, Emerald, Juniper, dies – Impression Obsession (snowflakes on large paint chips), My Favorite Things (snowflakes on small aqua paint chips), Reverse Confetti (holly & berries), Stampin’ Up!

Metallic and White Feminine Tag – Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2016 Challenge

eh-2016-feminine-tags-metallic-and-white-tag

This tag is for the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2016 Challenge. (that is a mouthful!) It is a BIG challenge, and I love it.

My tag was inspired by the Day 9 tags by Sharon Harnist and Jean Manis – Sharon challenged me to use frosty white with silver or gold metallics.

Me, being the overachiever that I am, used silver and gold, and a shimmery white that has a touch of gold. And pearls.

The back of the tag is gold, with silver embossing.

(Look at how much the light changed in my family room in an hour!)

The challenge runs through December 17, 2016. AND, there is going to be a random drawing from all of the qualifying entries for $150 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store. Have you posted an entry yet??

Supplies: Stamp – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Curious Ice Gold, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stardreams Gold (back of tag), Silver, ink – VersaMark, dies – Impression Obsession (snowflakes), Lawn Fawn (stitched hillside), Taylored Expressions (tag), Swarovski pearls, embossing powder – Stampendous!

Foiled Butterflies Birthday Card

foiled butterflies birthday

Offspring3 tasked me with making a card for a friend.

I cut rectangles out of a Heidi Swapp MINC toner sheet (large enough to fit the butterfly die), and ran them through the laminator with various foils. After they were cool, I die cut the butterflies.

Supplies: Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Heidi Swapp MINC Toner Sheet, My Mind’s Eye, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Taylored Expressions Build A Scene, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Impression Obsession (butterfly), Spellbinders (circle), foil – Heidi Swapp, ThermOWeb, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.
