Queen and Co Shaker Tags...

Hey there, its Laurie Willison here.  I am stopping in today to share a couple of Queen and Company shaker tags!  I have a housewarming gift to give and I though how perfect a Fall themed tag would be.  So I created this...

Queen and Co Fall Tags

I used the Shaped Shaker Tags to create this project.  I assembled the shaker box with a kraft tag die cut on the top.  I added the orange diamonds from the Primary Diamonds Toppings set and also added in some copper pearlies from the Matte Pearlies Toppings set. 

I used some die cut leaves from MFT around the tag frame and then added some ribbon, twine and a little glitter gel pen on the leaves, to finish it off.  

Queen and Co Fall Tags

I created a Halloween themed tag using a different shaker tag box....

For this tag, I used a glitter washi and a black mini washi to add a little decoration to my green tag frame, I created the shaker box and added the matching washi to the inside of the tag.  I used Black Pearlies and Orange Bubbles to fill the box.

I added a couple extra touches using MFT's Fab-BOO-lous Friends spider web and the Stitched Alphabet dies to add the word BOO to the acetate part of the tag.  I also added in some orange ribbon and black twine.  I die cut one black tag frame and attached that to the back of the frame, just for another fun detail.

So this is it for me today.  I hope you have enjoyed my fall themed tags.  These shaker boxes are so much fun and add so much pizazz to your cards and gifts.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Whimsy: Quick and Easy Tags....

I am stopping in today with another post using the most adorable stamps and dies from Whimsy Stamps!
If you follow my blog, you know I like simple.  Quick and easy, clean and simple....its my favorite!  I also like to mass produce things to use.  And when mass producing, if its clean and simple?  Its the best!  

I also love rainbows!  So mix those 2 things together and I'm in!  :)  Today, I created a very quick set of tags using one image from the Whimsy Handmade from Me set.  I chose the heart image that says "for you from me" and created this simple tag.  It would be perfect for Valentines Day!


I stamped one heart on each of the Stitched Tags using the Misti, which of course makes it easy and quick!


These tags can be tied to gift bags, clipped on little gift bags, taped on a package.  The possibilities are endless!


I found coordinating twice to go with each tag so they are gift ready!


So glad you stopped in today!  Hope you are having a great day!

Whimsy Thanks...

Hello there!  I am stopping in today with my first post as a guest over at Whimsy Stamps!  I have a clean and simple rainbow card to share today, using Bold Banners and the thanks die from Card Builder Many Thanks Dies.  


To create this card, I picked out a rainbow of Fresh Inks...Tomato Red, Tangerine, Buttercup (Amuse Studio), Celery, Teal and Silver Lilac.  I used the back of the "Congratulations" stamp to get this solid banner image.  With this solid image, it is very easy to line up and stamp twice if you don't get the color you want with the first image.   


At the bottom of the card, I added in the "thanks" die.  I went for a glossy accents look and then realized that it needed some sparkle, so I went over it with some microfine glitter.  When using Glossy Accents on thin letters like this, I take a pin and push the glossy accents around to cover all the smaller areas.  Last, I cut down the card front and then added it to a white card base.  


So that is it for my super simple Whimsy card for today.  I have more to share this month so stop back by soon!

Whimsy has an amazing line of stamps and dies, along with digital stamps and great promos on shipping and gifts with purchase.  Head on over to their shop to check it out!

Thanks for coming by and have a great day!

First, I attached the Split Chevron Cover-Up to the card base.  Then I stamped several of the Rustic Wildflowers in fall colors and attached them to the card front.  Last, I die cut the blessings die in craft paper and did a little ink blending on the bottom.

Shaker Tags....

Hey crafty friends!   I am stopping by today to share a couple of tags with you using the Shaper Shaker Tags kit.

This first card was so fun and so easy to make.  I grabbed one tag box, 2 of the same shaped acetate windows and die cut 2 black frames....

I filled the inside of the box with diamonds....of course....and then Pink Pearlies.  I added the back of the tag with the 2nd acetate window to create a see through tag!  Last, I did a little ink blending and added the sentiment on the front.  I tied the tag to the bag with twine and then added in a big pink bow to finish off the gift.

My next tag is another one that is easy to create.  I used another tag foam box, a piece of acetate, I die cut a white tag frame and then fussy cut another tag for the back of the frame.

I filled the inside with Black Matte Pearlies so they would pop against the white tag.  I did some more ink blending and then attached this celebrate die on the top.  I used some black jute and a black mini clothespin to attach it to my little gift back.  I love how the color really pops against the white.
