School Lunch Tags-Pt. 1

24 Sep

School is in full swing already, but I wanted to share a few tags I made for The Girlio’s lunches.  They were already “well-loved” before I got the picture (I really should laminate them), but here are the first four so you can see them at least:



Supplies: Stamps: Paper Smooches, Hero Arts (Love You More); Mists: Studio Calico (neon colors); Glitter Glue: Tim Holtz; Other: Paint brush

What does a first grade girl like?  Glitter and neon colors, of course!  I used one of my favorite techniques on this, and used a paint brush to paint in the stamped images with mists, and then covered them with glitter glue.  They really turned out cute!  🙂


Card Monday-Happy Birthday

23 Sep

Happy Birthday to the Hubby today!

I kept the card pretty simple as I don’t have a lot of time at the moment (cue crying baby.)  🙂


Supplies: Stamp: Hero Arts; Embossing Folder: Lifestyle Crafts;  Inks: Tim Holtz distress

I inked up the front of the card using distress inks, and then dry embossed it.  I stamped the greeting on the inside of the card.

I was going for kind of a water look, and would have liked to have added a boat or something with more time, but it still turned out pretty cool.
