TAGplorations~ Coffee Gives you Wings!

Hello crafty friends, I'm back with a lil' tag for the

This month it's all about THINGS WITH WINGS! As a coffee lover, I wanted a way to incorporate coffee into this month's theme. 

I used the new Stiched Tag dies along with the mug from the After Coffee stamp set and wings from Trendy Butterflies 2 set.  The Coffee word die finished it off! Mmmm Coffee..and yes it does make me feel like I can do anything...even fly! lol

I started with the largest tag from the Stitched Tag die set cut from Strathmore Mixed Media Paper. I then inked the tag with Broken China Distress Ink. I then created "Cloud" by using cut paper and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. I then added some water droplets for more texture. 

I Colored the mug from the After Coffee Set and watercolored with Weathered Wood and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks and fussy cut out. I embossed the wings twice from the largest butterfly from the Trendy Butterflies 2 set and heat embossed with a multicolored Judikins EP. I cut out the right wings and adhered to the mug handle. 

I adhered the mug and wings with foam tape. I added the Coffee word die and created the rest of the sentiment with a Studio G Alpha set. Some Nuvo Glow Drops in Blue Crush, added some more dimension and finished off my tag. 

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today! Oh and don't forget if you use code "STAMPGIRLAMY" you can get 20% off your purchase at the STAMPlorations Shop! :o)

TAGplorations~January Challenge

Woohoo! It's time for another TAGplorations Challenge!

This month's theme is WINTER and the optional twist is: TEXTURE PASTE
Here's my tag 

I started with the largest Manila Tags Die cut from MDF board and applied some pieces of cardboard. I then applied a layer of Gesso. Once dry, I applied Prima Platinum Crackle Texture Paste in random areas and let it air dry so I could get the crackle effect. 
I then used Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays in browns and blues to add some color to my background. Then I added the Snowman I  created using different sized circles cut from scrap papers in my stash. I used Vintage Photo Distress Crayon on the edges for some highlights and dimension. I created his arms from the TH Bird Branch Die and tied the Sentiment (TH Christmas Word Bands) with twine. 

I finished with the Uppercase Alpha in the bottom as that's my wish...for Peace. 
And some Paper Smooches Stars Die cuts finished off my tag.

I sure hope you join us for this fun challenge and I…

STAMPlorations~ Sanna's Stencil Release Hop!

Woohoo! STAMPlorations is having a Hop showcasing the lovely Sanna Lippert's Stencil Designs!
Be sure to  check out all her amazing designs...trust me, you'll LOVE THEM!! 
I used Trees 1 and Flowers 2 and made an art journal page:



I used my Mini Art Journal ..which was a kiddies MDF book. I applied DecoArt NEON acrylic paints  with a brayer. Once dry, I applied a little white gesso with the brayer to soften the background. I then created a Circle mask from acetate and used the same bright acrylic paints thru the FLOWERS 2 stencil . This mask allowed for me to create the "flower bubbles" on my page. 
I then used black acrylic paint thru the TREES 1 Stencil as I felt my page needed some black. I then used my Jane Davenport pen around my "bubbles" and doodled to highlight them.  I finished with my sentiment from Create Bold Sentiments set and the CUTplorations Uppercase Die set
I sure hope I've inspired you today and be sure to continue hoppin' as there ar…
