Christmas tag

Hi there, today I would like to show my Christmas tag using homemade mask.

patterned paper - BasicGrey
tag, stamp - Tim Holtz
ink - Ranger, Tsukineko
washi tape - Kamoi, Kurashiki Isho
lace trim - Prima Marketing
other - vintage book page

And let me show you how to make it.

First you will need to make your own mask with paper - just print numbers on a piece of paper (the font I used is "FFF Tusj") and cut them out.

Then apply the small amount of stick-type glue, and LET DRY (it’s important!). Now you’ve got your own paper masks, with sticky back.

Place the masks and ink tag using ink blending tool.

Stamp over the masks. 

Remove the masks and you will see the un-inked numbers.

Now all you have to do is embellish the tag - I added torn paper strips, washi tape, and lace trim.

Enjoy :)

Wedding card

Here is a wedding card made for Crafting Ireland. I usually make 12x12 layouts, but I also like card making. Putting small things and elements in a limited space is difficult but so much fun for me.

Cardstock - Core'dinations
Patterned Paper - Pink Paislee, Sassafras Lass
Rub-on - My Mind's Eye
Washi tape - Kamoi
Ticket - Tim Holtz
other - Tissue paper, pom-pom trim, paper doily

How to make this card:
1. Apply a title rub-on.

2. Put washi tape and glue the paper doily to the patterned paper. Cut out the excess of the doily.

3. Tuck the tissue paper to make pleats.

4. Machine stitch the tissue paper along with the pom-pom trim.

5. Glue a ticket and a frame-shaped paper piece.

2. マスキングテープを貼り、レースペーパーを貼り付けます。レースペーパーのはみ出した部分は切り落とします。

5. チケットとフレームの形の紙を貼り付けます。

2FrolleinのBlog Hopにお誘いいただいたときも「忙しすぎて無理~!」というのが本音でした。2fでなかったら断っていたと思います。メンバーが豪華すぎて断るわけにはいかないと奮起しましたが…。

仕事が忙しいのはmillion momentsのせいです。今月中に50万DLいくかも。まだ成長過程ですがすごくいいアプリなので応援よろしくお願いします!

Here is my layout for Artists' Garden Place challenge #24.
The color for this challenge is "blue" and the word is "cool", so I made a layout with pictures in which my daughter enjoys water in a paddling pool.

I was happy to be able to join this challenge.
