Scandinavian Prints Tags with Rebecca Luminarias


Happy Friday!  Our May guest designer Rebecca Luminarias is back with us today sharing a set of beautiful tags.  Here she is with all the details:

Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be back guesting for Neat & Tangled again on this TGIF! Today I have a set of tags that I made using the Scandinavian Prints dies.

The concept is fairly straightforward; I arranged the dies to make a flower (or 2) on the tag, then cut it out. I made 2 tags with the negatives and 2 tags from the pieces I cut out.


They're both very simple, but I love the folk-inspired outcome. They almost remind me of my mom's quilts.



For the tags where I used the negatives, I added some patterned paper behind the tag. It's a pink and navy blue floral print and offers a bold contrast against the white cardstock.


On this tag, I chose a pink ink to stamp "thank you" (from the Sweet Treats Sentiments set), with the little flourishes stamped in blue. I also added some lace and glitter elements, finishing off with navy blue seam binding.


The next tag is similar, but I used a different flower shape and a different "thank you," this one included in the Scandinavian Prints stamp set. While there are the textural elements, I chose to keep the tags minimal otherwise so that the focus would be the cut-out flowers themselves.


After completing those 2 tags, I took the white cut out pieces and made two more tags with them. I actually really liked the plain white shapes against the plain white stock, but in the end, I decided to add in some color. I stamped each flower bloom with a matching stamp in pale pink. I tested out the darker pink ink, too, but in the end, I just liked the soft pink better against the backdrop of navy tulle.



I did keep the stems and leaves plain white in order to draw more attention to the blush blooms. I stamped "thank you" again and cut it down to a small strip of paper, which I adhered to the tags using 3-dimensional foam dots.



It's always fun to use the dies in a slightly unexpected way. When I started this project, my idea was to cut out a bunch of flowers and piece them together to make the tags, not unlike the last two tags. But almost by accident, I cut out the single flower just perfectly to inspire the cut-out tags. Adding the paper behind them really made them pop, too, and this project took a slight detour. But you know what they say about the road less travelled...


Thanks for having me again today! Happy making!

Thank You Teacher Cards with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 

Well it's almost the end of May so you know what that means?!

Schools out for Summer!! 
I sincerely hope you sang that out loud :)

My little peanut is graduating preschool tomorrow and then we are kindergarten bound this Fall! 
Where did the time go?!
I'm so sad. However, I'm also extremely grateful for the amazing teachers he had this year. If you're like me you want to show that appreciation. 



My kiddo actually has two classroom teachers and I wanted them to have similar cards. Thanks to the new Complementary Colors and Paint Night I could stamp more than enough cutie patooties to fill in my cards.




 To ensure that school theme was nice and strong  I added in some of the accessory images from Schoolhouse. This takes the adorable peeps from painters to students with no other effort from me. 
Gotta love the effortless things right? 


I masked the bottom portion of the card to create a border and blended on some salty ocean distress oxide. I wanted my characters to be grounded in that area.  I set those aside and went to working coloring. 


I did really simple one and two color blends for my images. There wasn't a need for detailed coloring since there's so many images to oogle. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out before adhering them to the card base. Some I glued flat and others I popped up. 

You can watch both cards come together in the video below 




Thank you guys so much for joining and I hope you're thanking a teacher in your life too :)
