For the tag, I added some gold paint from Finatec Mica Gold Metallic Palette Watercolor set on the black cardstock and die cut it with one of the tag from Luggage Tags Nesting Dies – CUTplorations.

Then I cut out a white cardstock and red cardtock to created a heart inlaid die cutting using the Cluster Hearts Die – CUTplorations. And the sentiment is from the Pocket Blooms with CUTplorations Pocket Die.

I added the background panel on the card base with adhesive runner, slightly angle. Then I added the tag on it with adhesive runner, and the cluster heart with double sided tape becuase I need to make sure the inlaid die cuts in place, then last is the sentiment banner I added it with 3D foam tape.

Love TAGPlorations Blog Hop Day 5

It is the Day 5 of the Love TAGplorations Blog Hop. There are many gorgeous inspirations from the STAMPlorations Girls on the blog today. Come and blog-hopping with us! Do not forget to leave comment along the way for chances to enter the giveaway (info at the bottom of this post) 🙂

Today’s card is a masculine, mixed media card. Masculine is not my strong style, but I keep challenging myself to try 🙂 I mostly with the color combo and CAS style for it.

I added some neon green, yellow, green leaf and white acrylic paints on the wood grain pattern paper. Then I run it through my die cutting machine with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies – CUTplorations. I added the background panel on the white card base with adhesive runner.

Then I cut out a tag with Luggage Tags Nesting Dies – CUTplorations from a white cardstock and added the green chevron ribbon on it with mini stapler. I added it on the background panel with some glue dots.

Next is working on the pocket flower with the new Pocket Blooms with CUTplorations Pocket Die – Shery Russ Designs.

I have been making monoprints with my gelli plate and have them in my stash. I grabbed one of them that have a matching colors to the background 🙂 Then I stamped the flower on the monoprinted paper with archival ink. I used my MISTI tool for crips image by stamping it couple times becuase the monoprinted paper has some texture on it. Then I fussy cut the flower.

I die cut the pocket out of a navy blue cardstock using the matching pocket die that come with the set. Then I added the flower on top of the tag with 3D foam tape, and next I added the pocket die cut on top of it with 3D foam tape, too.

For the sentiment, I stamped the words that come in the stamp set with archival black ini, and cut out into word strips. I added them on the card just with glue dots.

That’s my masculine mixed media card today and I hope you all will like it and be inspired to make your own handmade card for this Valentine’s Day.

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!
