Christmas Card and Tag – The Crafter’s Workshop

Hi there my lovelies!!!! Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media Christmas card and tag I created for The Crafter’s Workshop. For those who know me, I am not a card maker but thought it might be nice for me do something a little different.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I will start my tutorial off with the card. I used a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card as the base and applied my Emboss It Dabber to TCW720 Snowflakes 6×6 stencil. Then used white embossing powder to cover the whole area and heat set with my heat gun.

Then I sprayed 13arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk light blue and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Delphinium Turquoise spray all over the card.

Next I used a separate piece of cardstock and applied TCW9049 Tacky When Dry Gel Medium through TCW717 Ornaments 6×6 stencil. I used my heat gun to make the drying process faster then rubbed some mixed media transfer foil over the top.

I then cut out the ornaments and used foam tape to mount them onto the card. I also adhered some ribbon to the top and used a sticker for my sentiment. To finish off the card, I used Couture Creations Glitzin’ Glamour in Antique Silver.

Now for the tag, I used a precut tag in white and smooshed Distress Inks Broken China and Stormy Sky all over the tag. Then did the same again but with Distress Oxides Ink Weathered Wood.

Once the inks had dried, I then used  TCW720 Snowflakes 6×6 stencil and applied TCW9026 Champagne Gold modeling paste. I used my heat gun to dry the paste, letting it bubble a little.

I used some stamps, snowflake punches, glitter and rhinestones to add some texture. To colour the stamped image, I used the Distress Inks Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood to make a grey/green colour and applied with an aqua pen.

Thanks for dropping by and I will back again soon with my next project xx

 

Go with your heart Art Journal Page

Hi Everyone and happy Thursday!!! Today I would like to share my newest art journal creation for The Crafter’s Workshop using alcohol inks and TCW products. I also have a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to see me in action.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I had previously applied TCW9002 Black Gesso to a page in my art journal which I used for today’s entry. I trimmed my Darkroom Door Synthetic Sheet in the lightweight so that the black gesso was a border around my sheet.

I used TCW809 Ocean Window in both the 12×12 and 6×6 and applied Alcohol Inks through the stencils using a felt blending tool. The colours I used are Pool, Lemonade, Pistachio, Current and Pink. I added some blending solution to the blending tool for the area on the 12×12 stencil.

Once it was all dry, I added some stamping using Darkroom Door stamps and black archival ink. I then applied TCW9049 Tacky When Dry Gel Medium through TCW541s Believe Script 6×6 stencil randomly around my page. I let the gel medium air dry for about 15-20 minutes.

Then I used a sheet of Decofoil in Lapis Watercolor and rubbed over the areas of the stenciled gel medium.

To finish off the page I added my butterfly stamp, sentiment stickers by Tim Holtz and adhered my finished sheet to the art journal page.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, below is the process video.
