Thinking of You Tag

Happy Friday!

For today's project I'm sharing this quick and easy Thinking of You Tag. To create my tag, I've used dies from the Planner Essentials Collection as well as stamps from the Beautiful Blooms Collection and Joset Designs. You'll want to read below as I have a full tutorial on how to recreate my tag at home.



The first three steps use the Planner Essentials 42 - Shapes, Frames & Words.

To start, you'll need to choose a piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut the solid tag out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the solid tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Die cut the plain edged tag out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Choose another piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut the plain stitched banner out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the banner using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


The next two steps use the Beautiful Blooms - Forever Stamp Set.

Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the bird and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the bird in using a waterbrush and the watercolour palette. Once the bird has dried, fussy cut it out. Ink the edges of the bird using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the plain leaf branch and stamp twice onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the leaf with berries branch and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the all the images in using a waterbrush and the watercolour palette. Once the images have dried, fussy cut them out. Ink the edges of all the pieces using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the Thinking Of You words from the Build Your Own Sentiments Stamp Set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the sentiment into two word strips. Ink the edges of both word strips using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Adhere the plain edge tag to the solid tag.


Adhere the banner 1/8" from the right and 1/2" from the bottom of the tag. Adhere the leaf branches as desired in the bottom right corner of the tag.


Foam square the bird so that it sits slightly over top of the branches.


Adhere the Thinking Of You sentiment to the top left of the bird.


To finish the tag, tie a piece of white twine through the hole at the top of the tag.


Here are a few closeup photos of the finished tag.




Here is the finished Thinking of You Tag.

Ooh LaLa This is For You Card

  Happy Saturday!

For today's project I have this Ooh LaLa This is For You Card. To create my card, I've used a variety of the new dies from the Paper Flower Collection as well as stamps and dies from the Planner Essentials Collection. You'll want to read below as I have a full tutorial on how to recreate my card at home.


To start, choose three pieces of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 4" Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut a 3 3/4" Fitted Rounded Rectangle out of the next patterned paper. Die cut a 3 1/2" Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of the last piece of patterned paper. Distress the edges of all three rectangles. Ink the edges of the three rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Die cut a 2 1/4" Stitched Circle from the Planner Essentials 33 - Viewmaster Text Circles out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Next, you'll need the Ooh LaLa sentiment from the Pieces of Life 4 - Retro Stamp Set. Apply Detail Black Ink to the sentiment and stamp on the right hand side of the circle as desired. Distress the edges of the circle. Ink the edges of the circle using Walnut Stain and a blending tool with foam.


The next three steps use the Florals 13 die.

Die cut the one large leaf once and the other two leaves twice out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Rustic Wilderness Distress Ink over the entire surface of each leaf. Ink the edges of each leaf using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Shape the leaves as desired.


Die cut the one large flower, three medium flowers and five small flowers out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink over the entire surface of each flower. 


Die cut the centres three times out of a piece of black cardstock.


Adhere the 3 3/4" rectangle to the 4" rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2" rectangle to the 3 3/4" rectangle.


Adhere the circle 1/8" from the right and 1" from the top of the 3 1/2" rectangle.


Adhere the one large leaf in the bottom left corner of the 3 1/2" rectangle. Adhere one of each of the other leaves 1/2" from the right and 1/8" from the bottom of the 3 1/2" rectangle. Adhere the remaining leaves 1/4" from the left and 1/2" from the top of the 3 1/2" rectangle.


Adhere a large flower, medium flower, small flower and a centre together. Adhere a medium flower, small flower and a centre together. Repeat this step for a second matching flower. Shape flowers as desired. You will have two small flowers leftover.


Foam square the large flower to the middle left side of the circle. Adhere one of the other flower bunches above and below the large flower. Adhere the small flowers in amongst the flower bunches as desired.


To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4" x 10 1/2", score at 5 1/4". Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.


Here are a few closeup photos of the finished card.
