The Twine is Divine

The Stampendous DT is having a great time with Whisker Graphics this week, enjoying the mix of Whisker Graphics goodies with stamps, stencils and Essentials. It’s a perfect ingredient list for party decor and gifts, right?  

For my project today, everything’s coming up daisies!  I’ve had this idea in my head since our supplies arrived, I’m so glad it’s finally out.  Now I have room for something new!  LOL!

Here’s what I used to create this card and tag:

Copic® Markers - Y00, Y02, Y06, Y08, B0000, B12
Spectrum Aqua™ Markers - Peacock Blue, Meadow, Moss
Yellow Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Strathmore® Mixed Media Paper
E-Z Runner® from Scrapbook Adhesives® by 3L™
3D Foam Mounting Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives® by 3L™
Glue Pen from Tombow®

Here’s what I did to create this card and tag:

Stamp 3 flowers, color and die cut.
Trim a piece of mixed media paper to 4” x 5 1/4”.
Add some ink from blue aqua marker onto an acrylic block, using a water brush, pick up ink and brush onto paper.
Add ink from yellow aqua marker and green aqua marker onto acrylic block, mix and paint onto paper.
Create an A2 card base with a tent fold from yellow cardstock.
Adhere painted paper to card base.
Trim two pieces of solid twine to use as flower stems, using glue pen, adhere to card front.
Add foam squares to backs of two flowers and adhere to card.
Paint the front of the tag in the same manner as the card front.
Trim a piece of solid twine for flower stem on tag and adhere with glue pen.
Using a foam square, mount flower to front of tag.
Create a tassel from striped twine and add to tag.
Card is ready to go inside of bag and tag is ready to adhere to front of bag!
