Mixed Media Recycled Christmas Tag



Hi, my friends, welcome back! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge we challenge you to create with something previously used - "RECYCLE". I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using the recycled cardboard on the background and decorated it using Tim Holtz Sizzix Geo Christmas Thinlits Dies and Idea-Ology Christmas Typography Findings.


I started this project with cutting a size 8 tag using the cardboard from a used shipping box. The background of the tag was applied with some Gesso using a brush. 


I die cut the Geo Christmas Thinlits Dies with different colors of card stock and layered them. Some wooden and metal Christmas embellishment were attached on the tag. Some rub on sentiments were added to finish off this project.


It's really fun to reuse or recycle something that you can find easily at home. I hope you like my recycled Christmas tag and got inspired to create your project. Join us and happy crafting!

Thinking of You Watercolor Card



Hello, my lovely crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "Thinking of You". Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November in most countries to recall the end of hostilities of First World War on that date in 1918. Our challenge is dedicated to the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty in all wars. We will remember them.

I was inspired to create a watercolored card using Simon Says Stamp Suzy's Succulents Watercolor Prints and Daniel Smith Ultimate Mixing Hand Poured Watercolor.


The succulents on this watercolor print are super cute and I really love the beautiful colors on this Daniel Smith watercolor palette. I hope you got inspired to create and join us this week. Happy crafting!

Mixed Media Tag Thank You AALL & Create



Hey, my dear friends, it's so great to have you here for the new challenge! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "THANKS/ THANKSGIVING".  As it’s the first Monday of the month we are showcasing a brand/company. This week we are all using some fabulous products from AAll and Create. You don’t have to use them to join in with the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

This week we are welcoming the lovely Nikki aka Addicted To Art into the Designer Spotlight. Be sure to visit her blog for all the awesome projects and great inspiration!



I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using AALL & Create Sunflower Power Stencil on the background and decorated it with Prima Marketing Grungy Butterflies.


To start this project, I first applied Gesso on the background of the tag. I then created the patterns using the blender and different colors of ink pad over AALL & Create Sunflower Power Stencil. The patterns was heat embossed using the clear embossing powder and a heat tool. 


I attached some metal embellishments on the tag. The final step was stamping and heat embossing the sentiment on a piece of white card stock, then cutting and pasting on the tag.
