VIDEO: Fuse Tool Shaker Tags

Hello everyone! Today's video is a fun one featuring a lot of shimmeeeer! A. Lot.

Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

These tags really were a joy to create. And quite easy thanks to the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool. Like I mentioned in the video, this is a great one to get the kids involved in as well. They will have a blast creating the watercolored inserts as well as filling the tags with all of the shaker goodness.

I can't wait to try them in different colors and different occasions. I love them all so much and can not decide which is my favorite. How about you? Do you have a favorite?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Throwback Thursday #9 Entries

Iconic Christmas is timeless and classic. There is such a wide variety of images included in this set.  Each image can be used alone or the images can be paired to build the perfect Winter scene.  If I had to pick just one holiday set for my collection, it would be Iconic Christmas because of its versatility!

Each of my projects today use Iconic Christmas with the same color scheme and the same basic layout, but the images have been paired with newer WPlus9 product.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Iconic Christmas  // Ink: Black // Cardstock: White // Dies: Holiday Apertures
The images in Iconic Christmas work perfectly with the Holiday Apertures die that released last year.  Here I die cut Holiday Apertures from white, red and green card stock and then placed each tree into the white piece.  It was a bit time consuming but so worth it in the end.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Iconic Christmas  // Ink: Black, Last Leaf // Cardstock: White // Dies: Love Mom Layers Die

My next card uses the same basic layout and elements with the large stamped tree in the background this time and the silhouette image to the left.  Some glittery snowflakes and sequins finish off this CAS card perfectly.

For this last card, I paired Iconic Christmas with Winter Woodland.   I built a Winter theme inside a frame that was die cut from the Holiday Apertures die.  Iconic Christmas easily flows with the rest of the WPlus9 line. 

I can't wait to see what you come up with, good luck!

Get Sketchy #4 Entries

For this sketch, I used the new Holiday Cheer stamp set and the Holiday Cheer Companion Die along with the previously released Snowflake Trio and Landscape Borders dies.

To begin, I first distressed the A2 white card panel using Distress ink in Tumbled Glass. I smooshed the ink on a heat mat and added a little water so that I could splatter some ink onto the distressed panel using a paint brush. Once the ink on the panel dried, I die-cut the distressed panel using one of the Landscape Border dies and adhered that to the card front using foam tape.

I then die cut the snowflakes using the Snowflake Trio die and adhered them to the card as well. I heat embossed some of the images from Holiday Cheer onto watercolor paper in white and then watercolored the images using Zig Clean Color Brushes in 067 and 042. Once the images dried I die-cut each image and adhered on the card with foam tape for dimension.

The sentiment, also from Holiday Cheer was heat embossed in Gold on vellum. Finally, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins to finish off the card.
