Fun Flower Tag

May 21st, 2018 § 0 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!

Birthday Cards

April 9th, 2018 § 5 comments § permalink

 

 

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with two sets of birthday cards.

Supplies:
Divine Twine Collection – Bright White Solid, Red Solid, Natural
Divine Twine Knots – Brown Sugar
Prima Flowers
Imagine – Memento Espresso Truffle Ink, Rhubarb Stalk Ink
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder – Just For Fun Rubber Stamp

I created a set of masculine cards using the Cuttlebug Birthday Embossing Folder and Memento Espresso Truffle Ink

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

.
For my first card, I embossed pattern paper, then inked over the embossed portions with Espresso Truffle Ink to highlight the words.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment and matted it with cardstock. Then I wrapped Brown Sugar Twine around the sentiment before adding it to the card with foam adhesives.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For my second card, I first inked the embossing folder with Espresso Truffle Ink then placed the pattern paper in the embossing folder.  After running it through the Cuttlebug, the results are totally different.

 

I wrapped Bright White Twine vertically around the embossed panel, tying it off at the bottom edge. Then I added the panel to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used the same process to create a set of feminine cards.

Using the Cuttlebug Birthday embossing folder, I embossed pink pattern paper then used Rhubarb Stalk Ink across the embossed words to highlight them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To finish, I added a sentiment amongst several flowers which I then adhered to the card with a brad. Then I simply wrapped some Natural Twine around the flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For my final card, I first inked the embossing folder with Rhubarb Stalk Ink then placed the pattern paper in the embossing folder. After running it through the Cuttlebug, the results are totally different. I tied Red Solid Twine vertically around the panel, then added the panel to the card with foam adhesives for dimension. I simply finished it with a sentiment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now I have birthday cards on hand for when I need them.

 

 

 

 

 


Thanks for stopping by.

Pretty in Pinks

April 1st, 2018 § 2 comments § permalink

Colleen here from Scrappin Granny (http://scrappingranny-colleen.blogspot.com/) sharing a couple of cards using twine from Whisker Graphics.

These cards are fast and easy to make and we all need cards on hand so I hope you will give these a try.

This card is so simple.  First I distressed the edges after adding a pink background and wound twine around the card.  I used the soft and beautiful Divine Twine Bamboo in pink.  (https://www.whiskergraphics.com/divine-twine-bamboo.html)

I then used a sizzix die to cut out the stars and glued them on.  Of course you need a little bling so I added a strip down the side.  The title was cut out using a die and the card is done.

This card took a little longer but was so fun to create.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I started by adding brown cardstock to the front of the card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next I used a poppy die by Memory Box and cut out three poppies.  If you put part of the die behind the first poppy cut out, you can make it look more like a bouquet.  Don’t throw away those poppies you will be using them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used the die by Memory Box to cut out the “Happy Easter”.

 

 

 

I used the soft and beautiful Divine Twine Bamboo in pink to wrap around the card just to finish off the card. (https://www.whiskergraphics.com/divine-twine-bamboo.html)

Easter School Bag!

March 25th, 2018 § 2 comments § permalink

 

 

 

 

The Easter Bunny will be here this weekend! – are YOU ready?

I put together some fun little packages to send to my niece and nephew in California.

Super easy, and super fun.

 

I started by die-cutting some baskets. I’ve purged a lot of crafting supplies over the years, but one of the things that I kept was this basket die.  I figured Easter (of course), and baby showers and bridal showers, and May birthdays and Mother’s Day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then I added a strip of patterned paper to my basket to add some more interest and tied my basket off with some Divine Twine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I laid my basket out on top of a large white tag, and topped it with a button.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then I filled these Notebook-patterned Bitty Bags with all kinds of yummy goodness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had some leftover paper from my baskets and punched more little bunnies and added them to my bags as confetti.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All Done!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Easter!

Shabby Chic Easter Bucket

March 18th, 2018 § 2 comments § permalink

 

Shabby Chic Easter Bucket

Hello once again, fellow crafters! For today’s project, I wanted to work with the Bigger Bitty Bucket. So I thought, with Easter coming soon, that it would make a great gift bucket full of candy for someone special. Let’s get started!

First, you’ll need some supplies. While I realize not everything is pictured (I was excited to get started…), You’ll need:

Liquid and Hot Glue, Twine, Scissors, 12”x12” Designer Paper, Scissors, Trim, Lace, an Embellishment for the top, and a slider or decorative piece for the trim (not pictured). And of course, the Bigger Bitty Bucket. Remove the washer from the twine, unless it already matches your colors. We’ll re-twine that later.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1: You’ll need to remove the paper from the inside. This will be replaced by your designer paper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2: Take your 12”x12” paper and trim it to 3”x12”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Next slide your paper inside the bucket all the way down, to insure it fits properly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4: Remove it and tape down 1 edge and replace it into the bucket the same way, this time adhering the 2 ends together. It’s not necessary to tape it to the bucket.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5: Once you have the paper inside, start by placing glue (quick drying) just underneath the handle attachment and start adding your Lace. NOTE: the upper inside of the bucket will be clear. You can choose to cover it too, if you want, but I want my candy to show through at the top).

 

                                  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glue all the way around

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 6: If you’re using a slider, slide it onto your trim before gluing it to the lace.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now add trim.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 7: Now take your lid and trace around the bottom part of it (the side that fits into the bucket). Cut your circle out.

                               

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 8: Add glue to the top inside of the lid and place your circle inside it.

        

      

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 9: Now take your glue and bead it along the top inside edge of the lid to add trim. I’m adding rhinestone trim.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 10: Here it is with the rhinestone in place. The piece outside of the trim was just to show you what I added.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 11: Now it’s time to re-twine the washer. I found the perfect color for mine. Slip the twine through the washer and tie it to the handle.

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 12: Now just finish decorating your bucket in whatever embellishments, etc., that you want. I added a pearl/rhinestone to the top of my bucket, and then added a bow to the back to hide the seam.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Finished Product:

   

 

I hope you enjoyed this project! It’s a fun, fast way to make something unique as a gift to someone. And it doesn’t just have to be for Easter, as it can be decorated for any time and theme! Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis, DT – Whisker Graphics
