Hi everyone, it’s Chrissy! I’m not used to coming at you later in the day like this but I kind of like it. 😉 You know what else I like? Getting to share with you some of what I’ve done with this awesome Magical kit that Nicole has created. If you don’t have it yet, what are you waiting for? I swear to you, you will love it! Don’t worry, I’ll convince you when you see what I’ve created with just one of the 4×6 cards in this kit. Yes, you read that right. Just one card!! Are you ready?
You may remember me saying that I’m not the greatest of tag makers. Well, I take that back. I kind of rocked these tags and they were SO easy! All I needed were two dies positioned correctly on my card to make these two tags. Here’s a look at how I positioned them just right.
I even have enough left over to make a banner or sentiment strip for another project. Can’t beat that. So now I have two shapes but what now? Well, lets look at the first tag which captured the “some kind of magical” sentiment on this 4×6 card. (If you have a sentiment on the card you are using, try to capture it in your die cut. It will come in handy)
First off, I die cut another tag shape out of gold leaf paper and offset it to the original tag. I thought this really added to my “magical” feel. To make my sentiment work for a tag, all I needed to add were the words “you” and “are”. I chose to do one with a die and some glitter paper and the other with these cool letter stickers I had. I like how the glitter added some whimsy but the stickers kept it a little more clean. You can’t just have a tag with words, especially when you have stamps sets as fun as Royal Wish and Princess to use.
I stamped my favorite frog and the magic wand, colored them with my Copics, and added them to the tag. To finish it all off, I added a good helping of chevron ribbon and, there it was, a tag that I LOVED!
What about the notebook paper die cut?
I turned this into a tag with a simple hole punch and some gold twine. A hole = a tag, right? I knew I wanted my sentiment from Princess to be on a strip of vellum but when I layered it on the tag, it looked weird all alone. It needed something else and, pretty soon, I realized that glitter tape was the answer! A strip of gold and a strip of purple worked perfectly to add a little glitz and color to an otherwise drab die cut. I decided to add some gold stamped stars and then some bling to give it a little more sparkle. The button just jumped on and then I knew I needed to stamp on and use one of those wonderful wood grain crowns! Again, simple but oh so fun!
I hope you enjoyed my little how to and I hope it will help you get the most out of your amazing Magical kit. Haven’t you ordered it yet?? You NEED this! 😉 Are you going to start cutting up some of your 3×4 or 4×6 cards? Does it scare you to do that? What other ways do you change up supplies to get the most use of them? Let me know in the comments section. I’d love to hear! Thanks for stopping by and check us out on Pinterest when you get a second. You may just be in for even more inspiration! 😉
