Today on the eClips/eCal FB page, we're launching 5 days of tags with a Spring Bunny Hop theme. Come join us and see what other makers have been creating.
Here's my first tag... simple and quick!
Kraft/oatmeal card stock (6 x 6))
Chocolate cardstock (6 x 6)
Foil Quill, standard tip and machine adapter
Silver heat activated foil
White cardstock (4 x 4)
Hoppy Easter Craft File (Creative Fabrica)
Easter Grass (eShape store)
Sizzix eclips2 and eCal3 software
Tombow markers (green)
Silver gel pen
Oatmeal Cookie Ink
blender tool with pads
foam pop dots (1/4 inch)
Using a basic tag shape from the library, size as desired. The sentiment is a free file from CreativeFabrica. The coloring is very subtle on the kraft/oatmeal colored paper. Open the file, break apart and remove the rabbit. Re-group the image. Size and place the image on the tag shape. Set the Hoppy Easter image to print2cut and print following the step by step instructions in the software to cut.
The rabbit is an old free digital stamp (unknown origin); set the image to draw in the software. Remove the blade housing from the machine and replace with the foil quill. Secure the foil as the manufacturer directs and heat the tip. "Cut" using the pen settings in the cutting window. Once the foiling step has been completed, remove the foil. DO NOT remove the mat from the machine. Cut the rabbit.
Cut 2 of the grass svgs using the white cardstock. The file, Easter Grass, can be purchased through the eShape store. Color using a marker - I used Tombow Dual Brush markers for this tag.
Using the Oatmeal ink and the blender tool, blend along the edges of the tag. Outline the lettering Hoppy Easter using the silver gel pen.
Glue one layer of grass to the bottom edge of the tag. I wrapped the excess around the back of the tag. If desired, you can cut an additional tag and glue to the back for additional support and to cover any excess grass. Apply some pop dots to the back of the bunny and set in place. Add the second piece of grass, gluing to secure.
Add some complimentary colored ribbon, burlap ribbon in this case to the tag to hang.
I hope you'll stop by over the course of the next several days and check out the remaining tags for this hop. And be sure to stop by the eclips/eCal Facebook page to see more creative work from other makes who use the eclips and eCal software.
Enjoy your time in your creative space this week! Nurture your heart and soul!
