Christmas in June!

June 17th, 2018 § 1 comment § permalink

 

Hello, everyone! It’s Nancy here with a new project share.

I really like glassine bags! The Middy Biddy Glassine Bags from Whisker Graphics are so much fun to play with!

They measure 4.75″ x 6.75″, which I thought made the perfect size for this Winter card pocket.

****************

 

Now I’ll show you how I did it.

I began by gathering my supplies:

  • From Whisker Graphics I grabbed a Middy Biddy Glassine Bag, and the Red Bamboo Divine Twine.
  • Then I used my Digital Carta Bella Bundled Up Collection.
  • I chose the paper and elements I wanted, and printed then cut them out using my Cricut Explore Air.
  • I also grabbed my Martha Stewart – Aspen Snowflake Punch.

 

 

 

 

 

I cut the paper 4.75″ x 6.75″, then used the punch along the top edge.

 

 

 

The next photo shows how I arranged all the elements. I adhered them in place. Then I wrapped the twine around the bottom of the card pocket several times, and tied a bow.

 

 

 

This is the back of the pocket.  You can see that I added some snowflakes to the back of the paper.

 

 

 

 

Here is what the card looks like out of the pocket. The two banners are stapled to the paper, and they slip over the outside of the glassine bag.

 

 

 

Here’s one final look at the finish card pocket.

 

 

 

This was so much fun…I’ll be making lots more of these! Just a simple change of paper and elements, and it would be a brand new project.

Thanks for stopping by!

I’ll be back again soon with another project share!

Birthday Cards!

June 10th, 2018 § 2 comments § permalink

 

 Hi Bev from Bee Cee Creativity here today for Whisker Graphics this month. I am sharing some fun cool masculine Birthday cards. I used these for my only Grandson and my youngest sons birthdays. The main pieces are the same but changed up a few accents and the image.

I start projects by pulling lots of possible options ant play to see where it takes me.  Great Graphic Whiskers products like metal circular medalions, large tags along with some cool stickers and labels made for a great mix and match… and so many colour options in Divine Twine complete so many projects.

I put the layers together and get a base start along with Divine Twine wrapped around and tied off.

 

 

After moving things around and fitting the base I chose to cluster the Metal Rimmed Circle TagsPetite StickyLarge tag and Twine tied it along with a scalloped Sweet Sticky Label  sticking out the right side.

 I then added some metal gears for a rustic touch.

These 2 photos showcase the central accented sections for your viewing. I hand wrote the dates and year on the metal circular tag and hand wrote Happy Birthday on the large tags in the cluster.

 

Be sure to visit the STORE for these products and so many more.

20th Birthday Celebration!

June 3rd, 2018 § 0 comments § permalink

 

Hey there!

Lisa with Lisa’s Scrappy Hideaway here today to share a layout using some fun Whisker Graphics  goodies!

I used Jilli Bean Soup Spotted Owl Soup, a large Whisker Graphics Tag, a Little Bitty Bag and Whisker Graphics Divine Twine in 3 colors: Green solid, Navy Solid and Blueberry.

 

I cut the number “20” out of my background using my silhouette Cameo. I backed it with patterned paper and decided to hand stitch around the numbers. I normally use embroidery floss to do this, but decided to try hand stitching with the Divine Twine instead. I love the results! I used the Navy Solid. The twine has 4 threads that are wound together, I divided it in half and used 2 pieces for my stitching. I poked holes using a pin and began my stitching:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here it is finished:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I colored my tag using Gelatos and that for my journaling:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wrapped the Green Solid twine around my photo and tied it into a bow:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I strung a banner, popped up with foam and added the Blueberry twine to hang it:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the finished project!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Bookmarks/Back Pack Pulls

May 28th, 2018 § 2 comments § permalink

 

 

Hi everyone, if you need a fun project to create with the kids, why not consider grabbing some Makin’sⓇClay and Whisker Graphics twine. Think of all the fun things you can create.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Begin by creating ice cream shapes using Makin’sⓇClay clay and cutters.

Use the Roller to roll out a thin layer of brown clay, then cut ice cream cones.  Use left over clay and mix together to create the ice cream – think rocky road, strawberries and cream, cherries jubilee………whatever flavors you like.  Roll out these “flavors” and cut out the ice cream tops by cutting off the bases.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Punch holes in the top of each cone and add a jump ring.  Allow to set 24 hours then place a glaze on top to make them shiney. Cut 3 lengths of Divine Twine Twists in Watermellon and thread them through two of the jump rings. Thread Divine Twine Diva– The Wheat Diva through the other two jump rings.  Braid the twines and tie off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
These can now be used as book marks, attached to back packs or purses, etc. The kids will have so much fun creating an assortment of shapes from Makin’sⓇ Clay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fun Flower Tag

May 21st, 2018 § 2 comments § permalink

 

Colleen from Scrappin Granny here today with a fun tag to create.

I started with a plain white tag and then used a stencil and some ink to get the background.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next, I wanted to make some flowers and decided to try something different.  I put glue down on a piece of cardstock and start laying string by string down until I got it to the size I wanted.  I used the Crushed Lavender Solid Twine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next I used some of my flower dies and cut out the number of flowers that I wanted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also used a vine die and put that behind the flowers.

 

To finish off my flowers, I layered them and added a brad to the center.  I used a ribbon at the top and a “Thanks” brad at the bottom.

 

 

 

I hope you will check out not only the twine the the tags in the Whisker Graphics Store.  Until next time, I hope you have fun doing something creative.

50th Birthday Celebration

May 13th, 2018 § 1 comment § permalink

 

 

We have a big birthday in our family this month, and I thought it’d be fun to personalized and craftify some of the gifts.

I started out with these Polka Dot Bigger Bitty Bags from Whisker Graphics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I topped them off with a large gift tag stamped with a birthday sentiment and then added some die cut 50s to them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And lastly, I tied them off with some Divine Twine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Super easy, super fun, and now we’re ready to party!

Stitching Fun!

April 29th, 2018 § 2 comments § permalink

 

Hello, friends! It’s Nancy here today with a fun new project idea!

Here’s what we’re making today…

Here’s what you need to make it:

 

From Whisker Graphics:

Middy Bitty Bags – Plain Brown – 5″ X 7.5″

Divine Twine Bamboo in 3 Colors 

Solid Pink Bamboo, Solid Aqua Bamboo, Solid Green Bamboo

Large White Tag

 

Other Materials Needed:

Paper Piercing Tool and Mat

Stitch/Piercing Design Templates

Insert the piercing mat into the Middy Bitty Bag.

Choose your design template and position it over the bag.

Pierce the design into the bag, through the top layer only.

Cut a workable length of the twine, and thread it on a needle. 

Using a piece of tape, 

secure the end of the twine securely in place on the inside of the bag.

Do this in a location close to where you will begin your first stitch.

Poke the needle through to the front of the bag through one of the pierced holes. 

Continue stitching the design from the front of the bag.

Do so carefully so that you don’t tear the bag.

To finish off, secure the end with another piece of tape. 

Trim the twine close to the tape. 

I then decided to stitch “HELLO” on a Large White Tag from the shop.

I had a plan for it! 

When the stitching was finished, 

I threaded some additional twine through the hole in the tag.

Here you can see where I adhered the tag to the front of one bag, 

and then stitched a little bird sitting on it.

To finish these off, I cut a coordinating piece of cardstock to fit inside the bag. 

These are just a fun alternative to the usual greeting card!

This was another fun project using products from Whisker Graphics!

I hope you give it a try!  Nancy Nickel – Whisker Graphics DT

Mixed Media Tag – “Great Job” – Perfect for Graduations!!

April 15th, 2018 § 2 comments § permalink

Hey there scrappy friends!

I have my first post for Whisker Graphics and I am beyond excited to join this talented group!

I created a mixed media tag for my first project:

 

I started with a Large White Tag and used a Creative Embellishment stencil to add some Light Molding Paste with a spatula:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once I finished, I removed the stencil and this is how the tag looked:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I colored some Creative Embellishments chipboard words and wood veneer stars with Nuvo Glitter Markers and let them dry:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once the molding paste was dry on the tag, I sprayed it with a variety of blue, green and silver mists and then sprayed it with a little water to mix it:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I dabbed it with paper towel to soak some of the liquid up, dried with my heat gun, and this was the result:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, I added some black ink through another stencil:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also used mist to color this Sweet Sticky Label and added it to the tag:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I took some Divine Twine in green and wrapped it around the bottom of my tag and tied it in a knot. Then I mixed these Divine Twine: Green solid, Green Apple, Blueberry and Navy and looped them to the top of the tag:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My son is graduating from high school soon and we are invited to many graduation parties. This will be perfect to add to a graduation gift!
