ADORNit ‘it’ Girl And Blessed Friends Ambassadors

I am so thankful to God for giving me an opportunity to work and serve at home and from home. Because of that I can have time to create projects.

When I look back to the crafting, scrapbooking, papercrafting, cardmaking, mixed media, and Bible Journaling projects, all I can do is giving thanks for my husband who always encourage and support me in this journey, and my daughters who never stop inspire me with their loves and everyday smile. Also, there are so many people that have helped me to step out of my comfort zone and grow. I am thankful for so many video tutorials and even only picture tutorials on blogs, YouTube, craft forums, and being part of amazing design teams. But I always open to learn and explore!

1 Stamp Set, 2 Tags

It has been a while since the last time I made mixed media tags. And today, I feel it is tag day 🙂

My plan to make a tag a week for this year. But for I missed several weeks so I try to catch up and enjoy the process of making it. Today, I made 2 tags with 1 stamp kit.

When Words Fail

On both tags, I used Canson Watercolor paper because I worked with watercolor paint and acrylic paints. Stamp set I used is Unity Stamp Company – August Kit of The Month.

On the first card I was inspire by the tag from Michelle Short at Tag Your’re It Challenge #54

I created my first tag background with watercolor paint. I dried it with my CTMH Craft Heater. And then I stamped the flower with Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen Big Brushes, sprayed some water, and dried it with the Craft Heater. Once the image dried well, I stamped the quote with VersaFine Onyx Black. I added some orange gems from Hampton Arts.

I also enter this first tag at Unity {Show & Tell} – Tag Challenge (8/18 – 8/25).

Heart of Gold

This second tag is a mixed media tag. First, randomly I stamped the border stamp from the Unity August KOTM with Versafine Onyx Black. Then using old credit card, I added 4 shades of FolkArt metallic gold paints on the tag. I dried it well with my CTMH Craft Heater before stamping on it.

Once the painy dried, I stamped the flower heart with VersaFine Onyx Black.

Heart of Gold

I painted the stamped flower heart image with FolkArt Hot Pink and Purple Acrylic Paints. Then I traced the flower line back with LePen Archival Pen. And I felt like it needed some sparkle, so, I added some glitter glue with brush on the heart 🙂

I wrote the quote with Sharpie permanent marker. It write smoothly on painted surface! Love it!

Loving these tags! My goal when I decided to make this tag ring this year is to have a collection of encouraging words and God’s words by the end of the year of 2016. And I can look back these tags for reminders later in the future.

I hope you all are inspired today and thank you so much for visiting. Have a fabulous day!

Christmas In July: Merry, Merry Gift Tags

It is July already and that means we have passed half of the 2016. Also, this is the month when I start making Christmas Projects: cards, tags and gifs 🙂 I hope this month posts will be inspirations for you to create something specials for Christmas.

Today, I am sharing 3 tags I made with Merry, Merry stamp set from Close To My Heart.

Merry, Merry Tags

I cut out the tags put of White Carstock and stamped the wreath with MISTI. This is great tool for mass produce cards and tags. For the wreath I use Fern Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad.

For the banner, sentiment and bird, I stamped them with Ruby Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. Them for the pinecorns I stamped it with Chocolate Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. I fussy cut the banner and bird with Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors. This is the best scissors I have for fussy cutting images, even intricate ones. Love them so much!

I punched a 0.25″ hole on each of the tag for the Fern Extra Thick Twine. And I finished them with some Clear Gems assortment for some extra shine and sparkle 🙂

Here are the close ups:
