Art Deco Tag for Cutters Creek

I love the Art Deco period but have trouble doing crafts that embody that time period of style so I challenged myself with this project.

I stamped the image on white card stock and then went to work adding Tim Holtz Distress Inks and using my alcohol markers. I like the way the frame around the woman pops and there is the vintage look I was going for so I am happy with the way this turned out.

Making of the tag:

1. Stamped image on X press blending card stock
2. Colored various parts of image with alcohol markers
3. Dab on different shaded of Tim Holtz Distress Ink
4. Spritz with water and let the colors blend
5. Add your bling! and adhere to your tag.

Products from Cutters Creek store are listed here:

Tim Holz distress ink pads in various colors

Zig 2 way glue pen

rhinestones (in flowers)

X Press Blending Paper for Copic markers

Graduation Card for Snapdragon Snippets

Even though the fireworks are gone along with the hometown parade, that doesn't mean that you can't keep using those cute star files from Snapdragon Snippets

I made this graduation card

using the Star Card Design ID #28777

I just grabbed some graduation themed paper and then cut out a graduation cap and it all came together. You could always use the graduate's school colors to complete this card as well. This is a very versatile cutting file and can be used for so many different occasions from birthdays to graduations to Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you today.

Welcome Baby Card for Cutter's Creek

There are no up and coming babies that I know of in my family but I thought this Noah's ark stamp I have is so cute that I really needed to finally use it.

I first heat embossed the stamp with WOW embossing powder then I used my alcohol markers to color the stamp. I added some fun details such as clear glitter to the sheep and Noah's beard plus flocking to the waves. I brought everything together by layering my card front and adding a little yellow and white twine bow.

Items from Cutter's Creek Store

WOW embossing powder

Doodle Twine assortment pack - Boy

2 way Zig glue pen

Hope your day is filled with rainbows and sunshine. Jearise :)

3 fireworks birthday card becomes birthday card

Welcome to my post today for Snapdragon Snippet. This week the US celebrates it's independence with family BBQ's and fireworks and Snapdragon Snippets has lots of wonderful cards and decoration for the 4th including this card.

3 Fireworks Card  Design ID #28778

But you can continue to use these wonderful files even after the 4th. I used the 3 Fireworks Card file to make two different birthday cards to give you an idea how creative you can get with this great card design.

As you can see, just layering the different layers can give a totally different look to this very versatile file.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a safe and happy 4th of July! Jearise :)
