Simple Christmas Holiday Photo Tags

FB tag post 1

Hi everyone! Christine here.  Today's project was inspired by my three-year-old nephew. We'll be opening gifts together on Christmas morning and I want him to be able to find his own gift under the Christmas tree, despite not being able to read quite yet. Like you, I have a number of gifts to tag and wanted something personal, but simple. And I wanted to use supplies I already had. Voila, Christmas Photo Tags were born!

Lisa here and I created something maybe a little different using the goodies I received from DCWV. I decided to create packaging for a wine bottle! 

LisaAdametz-Joy-DCWV-4

I live very close to Napa so this is a perfect gift for many of my neighbors and friends, but it could also be used for sparkling cider, etc.

I found the idea to make this from Pinterest, but the post? Was in Norwegian. Oh yeah. It was fun trying to decipher it. It took me forever. Even Google translate failed me.  The post took me to where I could find a template, but I still had a hard time. Once I DID figure I out? I made my OWN template. To save. Forever. ;)

Here are my steps:

I wanted to Share how I created this super fun Mixed Media Card with you all so here we go!

STEP 1:

IMG_9828

I took two Gelatos® Double Scoop® and rubbed them on my craft mat as you see above and sprayed it with water to dissolve the Gelatos® .

STEP 2

IMG_9831

With a waterbrush start applying to the amazing pre-Gold Embossed cards from DCWV.  With a dry cloth wipe off any excess that may have been left on the Gold image.  You will be left with something like what you see in the photo below.

IMG_9834

If you are a simple card maker you may be happy with leaving it as is but of course I had to take it a step further LoL!

Step 3

IMG_9836

Using Glass Bead Glitter Gel and a Resin Frame, I added the Glass Bead Glitter Gel using a brush lightly over the frame and dried it with a heat gun.

STEP 4

IMG_9841

Using the same hydrating technique I had done in step 1 I added the dissolved Gelatos®  on the frame randomly then heat set it with my heat gun.

STEP 5

IMG_9842

I mounted two pieces of DCWV cardstock and added the Happy Christmas chipboard to the middle of the frame.  I painted the chipboard and a bit of the frame with some gold acrylic paint and added glass beads inside the frame.  I gently poured Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Glaze and let it dry overnight.

IMG_9854

Note: I poured quite a large amount of Glaze which took almost 2 days to dry completely clear.  Drying time will depend on how much you pour.

MATERIALS:

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and be sure to come join us all week for more!

Hugs

Limor

 

 

Good luck!
