is just what is needed when you're moving across the country and there's another holiday coming up quickly.
and this is perfect if you have some scraps you can use too... (most of my papers are still packed away! So grab your eBrush, some markers and let's get started!
You'll need: Teresa Collins acrylic paper (Wanderlust Gold dots -- I used the silver back side of the paper) Gray/white/black card stock (card base and number cut outs)Electronic die cutting machine - use a font from your library for the numbers stamp Happy New Year sentiment metallic thread in silver paper piercer and guide
eBrush (SN and SP adapters); silver sharpie and black marker
Design and cut your numbers. I cut the top layer once and a shadow layer 2x. Stack the shadow layers and adhere together. Using the ebrush spray black. Set aside. Spray the top layer silver and then stack on the top of the shadow layer. You can adhere with a drop of glue if you'd like. Set aside.
Cut a piece of the acrylic paper and the black cardstock to 4.25 and 5.50 inches. With the black on the bottom and silver dots face up, use the paper piercer to create a zig-zag pattern in the upper left and lower right corners. Using the metallic thread, stitch the two pieces together. Secure the threads by weaving on the back side of the black paper. Place the numbers in order on the front of the stitched card and stitch the numbers in place. The numbers may swing a little if you like or you can secure them with a glue dot or small bit of tape. Mine or hanging free and move when the card is moved.
Once you've secured the numbers to the card front, secure the front to the card base. Add the sentiment to the lower front of the card, one on the inside and it's ready for delivery!
We're so excited to ring in the new year in our new home along the Wasatch Front! Wishing you the best the new year has to offer and lots of creative time as well.
Tags can add such a fun element to any packaging and they're even better when they can double as part of a gift or be an ornament. Today, I'm sharing 2 tags with you.
For these projects, I used: Die cutting Machine - Sizzix eClips2 with Bluetooth Tag (basic shapes library) Trio of Snowmen (Sizzix eShape store) eBrush Siphon Adapter Spectrum Noir markers Ribbon large glitter snow chip board snow flake (stash) Bigz die (Card, petal) PC Winter Shiver die (snowflake) embossing folders (optional) glue dots liquid glue (dries clear)
Create your tags using basic shapes from the library. I set mine up to cut two layers. One slightly smaller than the other using an inset shadow. Import the trio of snowman and resize to fit on your tag. They are pretty small (just over an inch tall).
I used all white paper to start. Using Spectrum Noir markers and the eBrush, spray the bottom layer tag in a light brown. Set aside.
Spray the top layer.
Then run through the Cut-n-Boss in the desired folder.
Using a light layer of clear drying glue, "dip" your tag into the glitter and let dry. Shake off any excess.
Color the snowmen. I left the bird off of this set. Using pop dots, add the snowmen to the tag. Add a bit of ribbon. I used a glue dot to hold my ribbon in place so as not to use a knot.
For Tag 2
Cut two tags, again, I used the inset tag feature in my die cutting software. Using the eBrush spray both layers as desired. Emboss the top layer of the tag. Center and adhere the two layers, centering. (see photos above)
Using the snowflake die, cut 2 times to create a stencil. Cut one petal card using the die. Now using the eBrush and your stencil, create a random design on the card which will become your envelope. Fold and adhere to create the envelope. The back flap is not folded down.
Color the Snowmen, hats and bird. Color the chip snowflake and add a little more color use the fine tip of the marker and add a snowflake design. Adhere the snowmen to the tag and the chip snowflake to the center front of the envelope.
If desired, add another tag to the top adding a simple to and from to the tag. Add a bit of ribbon and slip into the envelope.
Wishing you a fabulous holiday season! Hoping to hear about and see some of your projects on the eBrush Facebook page!
Hi everyone. Thanks for dropping by today. The holidays are here and we have a few gifts to bestow.
Using a few scraps from the scrap bin, I put together these two cuties!
You'll need: TC Thankful Die set (branches, tree) PC Winter Shiver (Snowflakes), Bigz Ornate Plate, SU! Tag dies, CC Snowflake embossing folder TC Acrylic Paper Cardstock (I used NeeNah 110 lb, white) eBrush, SN adapter, Siphon kit Spectrum Noir Marker (IB2) Cut-n-Boss Big Kick Xyron Creative Station (permanent adhesive) Pearl-Ex, Pearlescent mixed with water in bottle compatible with the siphon kit
Cut the medallion and bread tag dies using the TC Acrylic paper. Set aside. Cut the rest of your desired elements from paper using the proper sandwich (refer to your guide).
Get the eBrush and choose your markers and color the paper elements.
They were fun to color and there are so many options. Using the siphon adapter, mix a small amount of Pearl Ex with some water and spray on your elements. Let dry.
Can you see the glisten? The Pearl Ex was a perfect touch!
If desired, dry emboss the tree using the CC folder (this is definitely optional, but adds another dimension to your tag/ornament.
Run the paper elements through a Xyron machine and place on the medallion as desired. Since the medallion is see-through, apply the other Tree on the other side matching it. Up side, no glue or tape showing! Use some gems as desired. Add a ribbon and you're done!
Did you notice the ombre effect on the small tag at the top? Just lift your eBrush and spray lightly and you'll have a perfect ombre effect on your tag. Add additional embellishments as desired.
Complete the 2nd tag using basically the same steps. These are easy and quick to complete.
Thanks for dropping by! Don't forget to check again next week... simple tags 2 on tap.
