Paper Pros Challenge – Tags!

The Paper Pros challenge this month is Tags!  I made this card using the Karen Burniston Tag Book die and Stampin Bella’s Skating Quartet and Winter Backdrop.  I colored all the little pieces with my Copic markers and die cut them out.  The background was stamped onto the tag and colored with Copics.  I used Simple White Nuvo Drops to create the falling snow and the snow on the trees.  The skating rink is covered with Glossy Accents.

For the inside I drew the small skating rinks and added more critters and packages.  Each rink is covered with Glossy Accents,  On the side background panels and the little background pieces, I added more snow.

It’s all finished off with ribbon and Baker’s twine.  I LOVE the Tag Book die!  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Design Team January Challenge – Birthday Banners

Birthday Banners is the Karen Burniston Design Challenge for this month!  I used the Tag Book die and it comes with the banner piece – so that was easy! The flowers are die cut using the Karen Burniston Flowers and Bee die in Real Red, Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst and white with some glitter embellishments in the centers.  The bee was cut out of Daffodil Delight and Vellum card stock and paper pieced together.    I cut the Tag Book in Berry Burst and added some Tutti-frutti Designer Series paper that will be in the new Occasions paper along with the stamp, Picture Perfect Birthday and the Glimmer paper.

I repeated the flowers and leaves on the inside of the Tag Book die.The DSP on the inside is from Eastern Palace Specialty paper in Lemon Lime Twist.

A little bit of sparkle trailing along the inside.

And more banners and bees.  Check out how the banner pieces have the little design in the die!  The Celebrate is from Tabs for Everything.  Hugs, Fran

You can see more cards from the entire team here! Karen will publish on Wednesday.

Christmas Tags


So I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been up to while visiting my mother!  Since I can’t haul all my crafting supplies with me, I chose to take some cute images and my Copic markers so I could color while on my visits.  Then when I’m home, I make them into Christmas tags using Karen Burniston’s Tag Book die – just the tag part.  This tag uses a digi image from 2CuteInk and the wreath from Stampin Up’s Wondrous Wreath.  I put the little elf face up on a Mini Action Wobbler.  The berries are made with Red Berry Nuvo drops.

His glasses are coated with Glossy Accents – so cute!  Most of these tags were stamped on Xpress Blending Card and backed with Stampin Up’s Heavy white card stock.

These images are from Simon Says Stamp Christmas Squad and the snow bank is made with Karen Burniston’s Nature Edges.  The ornaments are covered with the Berry red Nuvo drops and the star is coated with Glossy Accents.

Here’s a Riley the Moose tag – Carrying Tree – paired up with some Stampin Up Quilted Christmas DSP.

And here’s a Simon Says Stamp tag using Christmas Cats with Copics and more Quilted Christmas paper.

And here I used Prisma color pencils and Gamsol on Crumb Cake card stock.  The ribbons I used are all out of my stash.

The Tag Book die is an absolute favorite of mine!  So many uses!  I’ll share some more when I return to my computer 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Design Team Challenge – Gingerbread!

Thoughts of Christmas bring yummy treats to mind and today we are celebrating gingerbread AND a new die – the Tag Book die –

1023 Tag Book  I started with Real Red and a cute image from Whimsy Stamps made into a little shaker.

Inside is a scene of a Gingerbread family getting ready for Christmas.  I used the gingerbread men and Christmas tree from the Winter Charm die set.  I chose to stencil the faces that are included with the die.  The package and wreath are from the Sleigh die.

Isn’t this die fun?  It measures 3 x 6 and can be mailed.  And it’s so easy to put together!  (Big plus this time of year!)

On the back I add another tag with a holly punch design as a space to write a message.  Have fun seeing all the other gingerbread creations!  Hugs, Fran
