Birthday Girl Gift Tag

Happy Friday, everybody; it’s Sabrina here today with a Birthday Girl Gift Tag to dress up a small gift. I love adding tags like this to birthday and Christmas gifts.

 

Gift tag using fancy papers and stamps from Art Neko

This actually started out as a project with no stamps, simply using the lovely papers from Art Neko, but then I decided to stamp a repeated sentiment across my tag and to add a little wrapped gift, too.

Large shipping tags are available from B-Muse.com (now owned by Art Neko), you will find them on THIS page, about four lines from the top. I used a dress-form on my tag because I was given a gift of a Tim Holtz die a couple of years ago – but a perfect alternative would be the Torso Tags from B-Muse.com – they are on the same page I have just linked, but right down at the end of the page.

I actually coloured the tag quite some time ago so I’m afraid I can’t remember exactly what I did, but I know it was distress inks sponged on, then spritzed with a silver shimmer mist and a stencil laid down on it for a few minutes, giving a slight textured look. I put it on a sheet of grid paper to help me stamp the  Happy Birthday sentiment across it in parallel  lines.

My dress form was cut from a cereal box and swiped with distress inks. I cut a scrap of holographic paper to cover the torso, and then set about creating the skirt. For this, I used a small piece of the Gold Stars on a Field of Black polyester fabric paper.  I scored it at 1/2″ intervals using a score-board, and then pleated it – it holds the pleats beautiful. I stuck a  narrow strip of paper on the waistline of the dress-form, and then carefully shaped the skirt onto it. I added a belt cut from another scrap of paper to neaten it up, with a  large gem for a buckle,  and trimmed the hem where necessary to make it even.

To add to the birthday feel, I decided to add a small wrapped gift, and used the Furoshiki Wrapped Gift for this purpose. I stamped it on thin card, cut it out, coloured it with markers and added another gem over the knot in the bow. It needed a little grounding, I thought, so I just added an offcut from my micrcoscope slide ornament! A ribbon to add the tag to a gift finishes off this Birthday Girl Gift Tag.

Gold Dot Snowflake Holiday card

 

Hi folks!  It’s Holly posting today, and this is the card that I sent to Annette and her family (owners of Art Neko).  I used some of the gorgeous gold dot fabric paper as the background for my snowflakes.  As you can see, the gold really sparkles and shines when you move it in the light.  It’s just beautiful!

I adhered the gold dot fabric paper to a stitched frame that I die cut from lagoon blue cardstock.  This frame was then glued to a kraft card base.  I punched out some snowflakes and glued three of them onto the frame, and then I affixed different colors of sequins to the centers of the snowflakes.

The inside is stamped with a Merry Christmas sentiment from the Charming Christmas Characters 1 sheet from Art Neko.  Unfortunately I don’t have the card here with me, so I don’t have a picture of the inside.  Hopefully this inspires you to make a quick and easy card using the gorgeous fabric papers from Art Neko!

Merry Christmas!!

Hang In There with Fabric Paper

Whimsical and Kind Sayings

Hey Everyone, Welcome to the Art Neko Galleries. Today’s project uses Art Neko’s beautiful fabric papers and a Hang in there Sentiment. On this project, I took white cardstock and sponged yellow and orange across the entire piece. I layered adhesive across the colorful cardstock and adhered the White and Silver Fabric paper to the background and set it aside to dry.  While that was drying, I layered it to white and tangerine cardstock. Meanwhile, using white Embossing powder, I heat embossed the Hang in there, from the Whimsical and Kind Sayings on black cardstock and adhered it to the card layers.

I am thrilled to announce that the talented Holly Brown is Featured Stamper over at Splitcoaststampers this week. I decided to CASE a few of her projects   this one  and this one. The guidelines to play along in a CASE is we are supposed to choose a card and change 2 or more things on the  project. It could be a color combo, embellishments, backgrounds, or even the main image could be different — but similar because you don’t own the exact image. Please list the changes you made in your description.

 

I hope you enjoyed my project! Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to come by tomorrow to see what Holly has in store for you. If this is your first time here, scroll back to see the other designs from our talented Team!
