I started by conditioning Makin's Clay, then rolling it out on the cutting mat.
Using a variety of clay cutters, I created an assortment of clay elements. Then I conditioned additional clay and used it in the push molds.
Look at all these amazing clay elements that can be used for a variety of projects.
Now it was time to create my tags. Using left over scraps, I assembled my tags, I used Beacon Adhesives to adhere the clay pieces. The pinecones were inked with brown ink and the ornament was inked with red ink.
The mitten was inked with black ink before adhering to the tag. A snowman was added to the other tag.
Both sizes of pointsettias were created from red clay then added to the tags. Sentiments were then added.
Makin's Clay elements are light weight and add no weight to a project. They were perfect to add to my tags.
Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog with the Clear Scraps December kit. This kit includes Clear Scraps Scallop Tri-fold, Window Shaker and Holiday Chip word as well Echo Park's Wisemen Seek Him collection.
Today I've use the Holiday Chip word with the paper collection to create a card and coordinating envelope. The chip word is 2" x 4" and is perfectly sized to make a statement on all your projects. I've used it as the focal point of my card.
Cutting cardstock to 6" x 12", I scored it to create a 6" x 6" square card. Then I cut pattern paper and inked each layer before matting them with cardstock. I also matted several stickers with cardstock.
I adhered the 3 panels together, then wrapped them with ribbon before adhering them to the card.
I painted the chip word with gold paint. After it dried, I adhered it to the card, adding the stickers to the card with foam adhesives.
Using another sheet of pattern paper, I created the coordinating envelope.
I cut assorted papers to fit the envelope creating a panel which I wrapped with ribbon before adhering to the envelope. A sticker was matted with cardstock, fussy cut and added to the envelope with foam adhesives.
There are so many stamps in this stamp set so I decided to create a unique background using an assortment of stamps. I stamped some of the stamps in various colors randomly on cream cardstock.
I created a card from purple cardstock, cut my stamped pattern paper to fit and matted it with lavender cardstock. Next, I wrapped the panel with purple ribbon and tied twine to the ribbon before adding it to the card. A strip of purple was added across the card, then the phrase was added with foam adhesives.
I created a second card as above but opted to tie the ribbon horizontally. I also tied twine to the ribbon. The phrase was then double matted and added to the card.
I let the jar sit for 15 minutes, then repeated the process for the second jar. Once the jars were etched, I rinsed them off and replaced the dip 'n etch in it's original container. Dip 'n etch is re-usable so there is no waste!
I glued festive ribbon around the jars and added foliage. Such a simple but festive decoration for Christmas.
