25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello all! It's Channin here and we are thrilled to be joining Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! This is such a fun and festive event with lots inspiration and prizes!

Today, I have a few christmas tags to share, one of which, a Pop-up Christmas Tree Tag, I created a video for!! But make sure to check out all the incredible inspiration over at Tracey's blog!

Pop-up Christmas Tree Tag by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

I had so much fun creating these christmas tree tags! I just love tags with lots of dimension and a ton of details. Even though it may not be too practical for mass producing, this little tag will definitely add a huge of wow factor to your gift! 

I used the Pull Tab Tree Bundle (Pull Tab Tree Die, Pull-Tab Tree Pop-Up Add-On Die, & Christmas Tree Stamp Set) to create these tags. For the first tag I used green cardstock for the tree and then ink blended Distress Ink Pine Needles on all the branches. I also added snow using a Marvy Snow Marker and then finished the tree with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Autumn Red.

For other two tags I played with the design a bit and used white cardstock for the tree and ink blended with New Fish in Pond and Peace of Mind ink on the branches. I then embellished one tree with gold sequins and the other with Lucy's Cards' Rainbow Sparkle Jewels.  

For the back of the tags I used the Christmas Tree Stamp Set (included in the Pull Tab Tree Bundle) and the A Homemade Christmas Stamp Set. I stamped everything in Versamark and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. 

 

For the next set of tags I use the Poinsettia Stamp Set and matching die. I stamped the poinsettia in a variety of Distress Oxides (Candied Apple, Barn Door, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Lucky Clover, Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn, Fossilized Amber, Ground Espresso, Crushed Olive, & Vintage Photo).

 

Once stamped I die cut the flowers out with the matching die and then attached them to a tag created with the Dotted Tags Die Set. I also stamped a sentiment on the front of each tag in either a Distress Oxide or VersaMark and then heat embossed in gold. 

I hope you enjoyed todays tags and video! Please head over to Tracey's blog to find out more info on the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event and for your chance to win one of the fabulous prizes!

3D Sketchbook Card by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a new video tutorial! In today’s video I will demonstrate how to create a 3D sketchbook with the new Sketchbook Combo!

3D Sketchbook Card by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I created some masks to create a blank pages on the sketchbook from the Sketch Book Stamp Set by stamping the book onto a stack of post-it notes and then cutting out the interior of the pages. Next, I placed the masks onto the stamp itself, ink it up with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, removed the masked and then stamped the book onto bristol paper. I repeated this process 2 more times to create 3 blank sketchbooks and I also stamped a paintbrush as well.

 

Next, I stamped flowers from the Bouquet Builder 2 Stamp Set onto the sketchbook pages. I then watercolored the flowers in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I then die cut the flowers out with the matching dies and then cut off the book mark and then colored over the remaining portion with a white gel pen.

 

Next, I scored the books along the spine and then adhered the back of the right page on the first book with the back of the left page of the second book and then repeated this process with the 2nd and 3rd books.

 

I then ink blended a background with Distress Oxides (Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, & Wilted Violet) onto an A2 panel cut with the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die and then sprinkled water to create water spots. Next, I stamped a sentiment from the Bouquet Builder 2 Stamp Set and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base. To complete the card, I adhered the sketchbook and paintbrush with liquid glue.

I hope you enjoyed my card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Cheers with Alcohol Ink Water by Channin

Cheers with Alcohol Ink Water by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a new video! In today’s video I demonstrate how to create a simple alcohol inked background that mimics the look of water and all with only one color of alcohol ink! I also show you how I foil and copic color this cool cat from the Cheers Stamp Set!

Cheers with Alcohol Ink Water by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

I started with the alcohol inked background. Onto a sheet of Yupo paper, I dropped droplets of Ranger Sailboat Blue Alcohol Ink and then used Alcohol Blending Solution to dilute the ink and create different values. When I had good ink coverage on my Yupo paper I set it aside to dry. Next, I stamped then copic colored the cat from the Cheer Stamp Set. I then applied adhesive onto the sunglasses with a Decofoil Adhesive Pen. I then applied a small strip of Iridescent Decofoil over the sunglasses and then die cut the cat out with the matching die. Next, I heat set the foil by running the image through my laminator.

I then cut three 1.75” x 3” rectangles of white cardstock and then stamped the sentiment from the Cheers Stamp Set onto one with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Next, I adhered all of the rectangles together with the stamped one on top. I finished my card by die cutting the alcohol inked background using the largest die from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die set, then adhering it and the sentiment to an A2 top-folding card base. Lastly, I adhered the cat with foam tape above the sentiment. 

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and card! Thanks so much for stopping by and see you Thursday with a new video!!
