Faith Tag - Creative Embellishments


Hi everyone! I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog today sharing another over sized tag I created .  I was looking through my stash and came across some papers from Stamperia's Rose & Angels collection along with a angel resin piece from Prima, both of which inspired me to create my tag.  I love the aged look of the papers along with the beautiful color palette.


Lots of layering and fussy cut pieces on the tag, along with lots of Creative Embellishment chipboard and some Prima flowers from my stash.


I used some pieces from Distressed Harlequin Pieces, which I lightly sprinkled with some sea mist embossing powder.   I found if you sprinkle sparingly, when heat embossed you get an aged, distress look.  To the right I used the Heart Dangle 2, embossed with pink dust embossing powder. 


I embossed the Flourish 27 with some avocado embossing powder, using the same technique as the harlequin pieces by sprinkling randomly.  I cut the Flourish 27 into several pieces and inserted them with the flowers on my tag.


Beneath the angel I used Flourish 17, embossed with a sea mist embossing powder.


The title faith is from the Hope Word Set.  I embossed it along with a key from Keys with a pink dust embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Room With A View - Creative Embellishments August Challenge



Hi everyone! It's the first of the month and the means a new challenge over on the Creative Embellishments blog.


I created this canvas using a couple of paper collections by Blue Fern Studios. I started by applying some modeling paste using a stone stencil to the background of the canvas.  Once dried I applied several shades of purple paint and mist along with some yellow paint. Lots of paper layering along with Creative Embellishments chipboard, lace, flowers and prills.


I love the mood board for the August Challenge.  I was inspired by the colors, stone front building, flowers and the arched doorway.  The twist to the challenge this month is to add flowers.


At the base of my canvas I used Flourish 26 which I embossed with a mixture of white, lilac and iris embossing powders.  


To the left and right of the canvas I used Flourish 31, also embossed with white, lilac and iris embossing powders and cut in half.  To frame the image of the Eiffel Tower I used Open Arched Windows, embossed white. Tucked beneath the flowers I used  Leaves Set 1, embossed with avocado embossing powder and dabbed with white gold wax.


This is the top of  Flourish 26 and to the right is a piece from Flourish 31.

Daylight Dreams - Creative Embellishments


Hi everyone!  I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog today sharing another over sized tag.  I must admit that they have become quite addicting.  I love working with the extra space to accommodate lots of Creative Embellishments chipboard.


I used a paper from Blue Fern Happy Accident 2 collection.  I cut out the base of the tag and several smaller pieces for layering on the tag.  I added some stamping along with some vintage gold wax.  From there I added my layers.


I used the Leafy Vine Frame  on the base of my tag.  I embossed it with shabby rose embossing powder and lightly dabbed it with vintage gold wax. This view is the top of the tag.


Here is another view of the Leafy Vine Frame at the bottom of the tag.


 I inked the Delicate Leaf Frame with dark green ink and dabbed the piece with vintage gold wax.  I cut the frame into several pieces and placed them around the center of the tag.


Beneath the butterfly I used a frame from the Square Mini Frames.  I embossed it with shabby rose embossing powder and dabbed it with vintage gold wax.  To finish off my tag I added some lace which I sprayed with vintage gold mist along with a few flowers and some Tim Holtz Botanical flower die cuts.

Summer Inspired Tags - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone!  I'm up on the Creative Embellishments blog today sharing a couple of summer inspired tags featuring lots of Creative Embellishment chipboard.   I love this time of year with sun filled days and my garden full of beautiful blooms.  I love to sit out on my front porch and watch the butterflies flutter from flower to flower.  

I started off with 2 small tags. I added some stamping to the backgrounds and edged the sides with some Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink.  I built up layers with smaller pieces of paper and added some ephemera, flowers and lace from my stash along with some art stones. Love the Tim Holtz acetate butterflies!

The first tag, titled Fly has several pieces of Creative Embellishments chipboard.  I used Filigree Corner Set 1  and Door Knockers under the flowers, and  Filigree Corner Set 2 at the top and bottom of the tag.  I also used pieces from  Flourish 11 on each side of the tag.  Below are some close ups of the tag.

Filigree Corner Set 1  and Door Knockers embossed with a mixture of oatmeal and light blue embossing powders. 

Pieces from Flourish 11 embossed pale yellow.

The Filigree Corner Set 2 was embossed with a mixture of oatmeal and light blue embossing powders. 


The second tag, titled Wings also has several pieces of Creative Embellishments chipboard.  I used the
Intricate Diamond Frame beneath the flowers, which I turned sideways.  At the top and bottom of the tag I used a piece from Door Knockers.  Tucked within the layers are pieces from Flourish 11, and above the title I placed Filigree Corner Set 2.  Below are some close up pictures.

The Intricate Diamond Frame was embossed with a mixture of oatmeal and auburn embossing powders.  Pieces from Flourish 11 embossed with a mixture of oatmeal, auburn and light blue embossing powders.
