Double tag card

Hi, today I'm sharing a new kind of card I made (well for me it's new), called a double tag card.
I discovered the idea on Tara's craft studio. It's funny how you can stumble on a site which you never visited before and find exactly what you have been looking for for some time. You know?
I had that with Tara's craft studio site. Such amazing projects and inspiration I found there.
One of the easiest to make (in my opinion) was the double tag card. You can find examples, the template and explanation here, and this is what I came up with.


It's kind of a booklet and it has two pockets on the inside, in which there are two pull-out tags.





There is a lot of decoration and embellishments on my project.
I covered the entire booklet with the beautiful paper from Prima Marketing, Love story. The script paper on the tags is from another company (I'm sorry I don't know which one).


I used all kinds of lace, trims, pearl strings, ribbons for decoration. But also a stickpin, pearls and of course the flowers from Prima Marketing.


On the front I used one of the journaling note card from the love story collection.
Here is also a picture from the back of the card.


It was quite a lot of work but it's absolutely worth it. This kind of card makes a wonderful gift to send to family or friends.

Antique clock

Hi, something different today.
I recently (re)dicovered a site called Sandra's Scrapsels. She sells the most amazing card templates and has reopend her store this month. I ordered an antique clock template for a masculine card/scrap project.


First I printed the individual pieces and cut them out using cardstock and patterned paper from Kaisercraft. I covered all the sides with patterned paper, both the front and back pieces.



I distressed all the edges with tea dye ranger distress ink.
Then I decorated the front with a chipboard frame colored with gold ink. On that frame I glued a piece of patterned paper and a clock. I embellished the front with flowers, leaves and cogs.



The back of the antique clock is decorated with a sentiment and a steampunk corner chipboard from Wycinanka



There is a piece of paper between the front and back side so the clock can stand on it's own.
I don't make much masculine projects but this one was fun to make and I'm pleased with the result.

Silk foam poppy

Hi, I've made another video tutorial. This time it's a silk foam poppy flower.


A few weeks ago I made one in orange but the video is a red and purple poppy.




The silk foam, foamiran and stamens I used are from 14 craft bar.
The poppy petal template I found here.

Forever in my heart

Last week I ordered some items of the Prima Marketing love story collection.
I just LOVE the papers and the flowers, they are so beautiful.
Today I made this card with these papers and flowers.


I used two journaling notecards as background panels.
The chipboard heart is from Filigranki, I painted it with chalk paint.


I've also added lace, pearls and die cut leaves. I die cut the leaves from the patterned paper but also from vellum paper with a gold pattern.
There is a butterfly in the bottom right corner cut out of that same vellum paper (die is from Wild rose studio "butterfly lace").


The sentiment is a sticker from the love story collection.


The bigger flowers are fabric, the smaller ones are paper.


A perfect card for the upcoming mothersday.

There will be more projects with this collection in the future.

Pretty in .... Blue

My second post today is to share with you a card I've created in blue color tones.


The paper I used is from Lemoncraft "gossamer blue". There are some paper flowers on it but also foamiran flowers,  like the blue roses. I have a tutorial on my you tube channel on how I made these roses. You can find it HERE.


I also added two doilies, cheesecloth, lace, paper leaves, feathers, butterflies and pieces of blue crochets. The butterflies are free printables from this site.


The sentiment is from the Itsy Bitsy paperpack: watercolor floral ballet.
