50th Anniversary Tags

20 Sep

I love working with someone on a project that they imagine in their mind and I can help bring to fruition. Last week, I began working with a woman hosting a party for her parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary. She had purchased some Lenox vases and wanted elegant tags to go with them.

After coordinating several versions, we agreed on the following, simple, elegant and perfect for the vases:

To me, using Spellbinders die templates adds such wonderful details. Not only are they elegantly and expertly crafted but the embossing details transforms every die cut to be something so stunning. Just love them.

So, congrats to the happy couple of 50 years…

Today’s sketch came from Card Positioning System.

I used pieces/parts from other cards and projects so it came together quickly.

The image below has several lines pointing out where the die cut pieces come out but I keep them nearby for uses such as this card.

The sketch offered by Card Positioning System got me thinking about using my Copic Airbrush System to try to combine colors. I wondered if airbrushing onto plastic in several colors would allow them to merge ad make new ones. My card results are “fine” but I would love to work on the technique some more to really see what I could create. Here is the card:

As a quick recap: I used the S4-192 Blossom die template and die cut some sticker packaging. I airbrushed each Blossom under a Flower Impressabilities® (I2-1004) template using a medium dark color with a light coat. I added a pop up Glue Dot to the center of each flower and covered it with green glitter.

The three blossoms went onto a mat of pearl yellow paper with distressed edges. I cut/embossed the left edge of my card base with S4-218 Lattice Borderabilities® Petite. To finish, I added a hand printed sentiment and felt bird embellishment.

Again, I really like the idea but would like to develop it a little more. Let me know what you think.

Have a great week and happy creating! Eli

It’s a Girl!

3 Oct

Yes, I do have a girl but most of you probably already knew that.

But while I get ready for the craft fair in November, I’m trying to anticipate what some of the folks might want. As you can imagine: baby, wedding, holidays, birthdays… at the top of the list.

So here is a little altered frame I created for a new baby girl. I had a blast creating this, imagining my little princess, oh so many years ago. (Wish you could see me making that puddin’ face with my lips stuck out. Sorry, no one here to photograph it right now. You’ll just have to imagine.)

The most delightful part was airbrushing the very subtle images on the bottom of the frame. I used Spellbinders™ Impressabilities® template to mask off parts of the frame and simply airbrushed over it with RV11 “Pink” Copic Sketch marker. Ooh, la, la!

its grl frame full

I love the soft and elegant images. Now check out the top. I cut Spellbinders™ Lattice Borderability® out of pink vellum and airbrushed through the die template to get the pink swirls. Then I layered the two metal embellishments.


So, if anyone knows someone with a new baby girl…be sure to let them know about the craft fair…lol
