December 2011 Blog Hop

Today is Papertrey Inks monthly blog hop challenge. This months challenge is to use holiday leftovers. I wrapped all my gifts in Kraft paper and used twine this year. That was the inspiration for my card.  I took an extra large heart die and used last Make it Mondays technique to make a heart card.

Paper: Pure Poppy (pti) Vintage Cream (pti) Kraft wrapping paper
Stamps: Rosie Posies & Happy Day (both Pti)
Ink: Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy (pti)
Dies: Rossie Posies & Happy Day (both Pti), Heart Spellbinders
Happy Hopping!

Tag 2

It day 2 for Tim Holtz 12 days of tags! My very favorite part of this tag is the paper! Tim used his Kraft Resist Paper Stash. I didn't have any so I made some. I will share how I did it so you can make it too.
1. I took some Kraft paper from Papertrey ink and stamped music with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
2. I stamped the holly with green ink.
3. I used an Anti Static Bag for embossing and rubbed it over the whole tag. This step is very important. If you do not do it the sheet music will be embossed and you do not want that for this technique.
4. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark Watermark ink. Then sprinkled clear embossing power and heat it.
That's how I made the paper. After that I followed Tim's instructions.
Just a note: you can find the greenery he used for the wreath in my shop.
