Sweet & Simple - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone!  I'm up on the Creative embellishments blog today sharing this over sized tag.  I came across a Prima collection I had purchased awhile back, Lavender Frost.  Totally forgot I had it,  but isn't that something we scrappers are guilty of?


I covered the base of the tag with paper and used a flower stencil and modeling paste.   I sprayed the paper with some pink mist.  Next I randomly added stamping with the Distressed Script Stamp. I stamped the edges of the tag and all of the paper layers with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. From there I built up layers and added some pieces of Creative Embellishment Chipboard and Prima flowers.



At the center of the tag I used the Vintage Flourish 3, embossed with Stampendous Shabby Pink EmbossingEnamel. To the right and left I used pieces from the Mosaic Panel, treated the same as the Vintage Flourish 3.



Here I've used the Flourish Set 6 embossed with Ivory Green embossing powder.  I love how delicate this chipboard piece is.



Here is another view of the bottom of the Vintage Flourish 3 and Mosaic Panel.  I added some Art Quest Prills and gold glitter.

Find Your Path - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone!  I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog today sharing an over sized tag.  The weather here has been  all over the place.  One day cold, and within a few days warm.  Winter is not my favorite season.  Everything outside is dormant, dark and bare.  Some days are filled with bright sunshine and others are dark and dreary.  So I thought I would create a tag of the days to come when the sun is shining and nature is alive with color.


I started off by applying paper to the tag.  I added some stamping and inking.  Lots of layering and nature related Creative Embellishments chipboard. Tucked withing all of layering a placed moss that i purchased at my local Michaels.


Here I used the Daisy Set.  I stamped it with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and applied some Prima Red Rust Effect Paste.  I punched some circles and covered them with mini prills which I dabbed with the red rust effect paste.  To the left of the daisies I used pieces from Fern Foliage 4 and  Mini Berry Set. I dabbed the Fern Foliage 4 chipboard with some Prima Moss Rust Effect Paste and a copy shades of green paint and dabbed some Prima Bronze Age Wax.  I treated the Mini Berry Set pieces the same as the Daisy Set.

 Above the butterfly I placed a chipboard piece from Leaves Set 7.  I used the same method on the leaf as on the ferns.

Here is another piece from the Leaves Set 7.  Love the texture the rust effect paste adds to the chipboard.

Kindness - Creative Embellishments January Challenge


Hi everyone and  Happy New Year!  I'm excited to continue designing for Creative Embellishments this year.  It's the first of the month and that means a new challenge is up on the Creative Embellishments Blog.


  I love the mood board for the January Challenge.  I found it very magical and was inspired to create this wintry canvas.  I used papers from Stamperia's Blue Stars paper collection along with a 8 x 8 canvas.  Lots of layering, stamping, flowers and Creative Embellishments Chipboard.  I started off by covering the canvas with paper, book pages and cheesecloth.  Next I added some stamping and inked the edges of the canvas.  From there I built up layers and added chipboard and flowers.

Here is the January Mood Board.  The twist this challenge it to add texture.


Here are a few closeups:

I used a piece from the Falling Snow Set  on the center of the canvas.  I painted it white and added some blue sparkling embossing powder and then lighting dabbed it with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  To the right I used a piece from the Large Snowflake Set.

At the bottom I placed another piece from the Large Snowflake Set, and beneath the flowers pieces from Leaves Set 1.

Beneath all of the layering I used the Circle Stitched Frame, which I dabbed with Tea Dye Distress Ink and them dabbed with white paint.  Tucked within the layering are pieces from the Poinsettia Set.

I hope you join us this month.  For more inspiration from the design team please visit the

Happy New Year and thanks for stopping by!

Serenity Tag - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone!   Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and had a Happy Holiday!  I had a lovely day and enjoyed being with my family.  Today I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog sharing an over sized tag.

I used  the papers from 13 Arts Summer Rhapsody collection.  I added some stamping to the base of the tag along with some pink mist.  I built up layers with papers and die cuts from 13 Arts. 


Beneath all of the layering I used the Flourish 9 which I embossed with some Raspberry embossing powder and added some Prima Vintage Gold Wax.  Beneath the butterfly I placed a piece from  Vintage Lantern and  Flourish Set 26.  Both pieces were embossed black and I added some Prima Vintage Gold and Indian Pink Waxes.

Here is another view of the Vintage Lantern and  Flourish Set 26.

At the bottom of the tag a placed another piece from Flourish Set 26 along with lots of flowers.

Captured Memories - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog with an over sized steampunk inspired tag.  The Creative Embellishments store has a large assortment of steampunk chipboard.  I love working with gears and watches.  


I started off by covering the tag with a paper from the Ciao Bella Collection. Next I added some stamping to the background. I fussy cut several images from various papers in the collection to add in between  the chipboard pieces.


I used several pieces of chipboard here.  Grunge Gear CornerCircle Chain Frame and Gear Set 2 Medium.  All pieces were stamped with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I then applied several colors of Finnabair Waxes and some Finnabair Art Alchemy Paints.   


I cut a piece off of the Grunge Gear Corner and added it to the bottom of the tag.  


On the base of the tag I used a piece from Large Gear Frames.  Placed above the frame is a clock from Steampunk Pocket Watches.


 I used another piece from the Steampunk Pocket Watches to the right of the tag.  I added some copper micro beads, copper glass glitter and splattered some clay paint.  

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Holidays!

Sparkle - Creative Embellishments December Challenge


Hi everyone!  It's December 1st and that means a new challenge at Creative Embellishments.   



 I was inspired to created a Christmas canvas.  I used several pieces of Creative Embellishments chipboard.   I start off by adding some flourishes to the canvas background using a stencil and modeling paste.   I then applied some Finnabair Vintage Gold Wax and some silver and gold mists.  At the base of the canvas I used a piece from Doily Frame Set 1, which I embossed gold and added some Finnabair White Gold wax.  I placed a holiday pick at the center of the canvas which I purchased  from my local craft store.  I added several pieces from the Poinsettia Set.  I embossed the flowers silver and added silver glitter.  The sprigs and leaves I embossed gold.  The star at the top of the canvas is from Flourish Ornaments, which I covered with silver paint.  The title "Sparkle" is from the Sparkle Word Set.  

The challenge this month is a color challenge and the twist is to add glitter.

I hope you'll join us this month.  Head on over to the Creative Embellishments blog for some inspiration from our fabulous design team.
