Creation Station Tour – Amazing Birthday

Posted on

creation station header

Hello everyone! I had a very nice day in Manhattan yesterday! I will have some fun pictures for you tomorrow, but today it’s time for the Creation Station Blog Tour! I’m hoping that you have been along for our previous ones! I missed the last one, I was at Convention. I f this is your first time here welcome and I hope that you find inspiration in the projects. This time around we are featuring the Amazing Birthday Stamp Set and the Tag-A-Bag products. If you are following the tour you have arrived here from Deborah Smart’s blog, she always has such cool stuff! I have three projects for you today. I took some pictures of the first project because it contains a new item and a fun new technique!

First up I have a simple gift card holder made with the new Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits Die that will be available for purchase on August 28th from the 2014 Holiday Catalog. I used the die to cut out a piece of Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper.

The die is great because it cuts and scores the paper for you, all you have to do is fold, adhere and embellish!

I added the circles and 1/8″ Mini Brads so I would be able to tie on my tag. Speaking of the tag it’s actually a “Vintage” one from the Stamp a Tag Kit. I used the greeting from the Amazing Birthday Stamp Set and marketed it in Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry.

A piece of White Baker’s Twine is wrapped around the brads and holds the tag to the gift card holder. A quick and fun way to give someone a little something for their birthday!

Next up I have a note card. I saw this fun technique to make epoxy embellishments the other day so I thought I would give it a try! The card begins with one of the cards from the Note Cards & Envelopes. I embossed a piece of Tempting Turquoise with the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for my background. For the banner I cut out a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the Banners Framelits. A piece of Real Red is cut out with the Starburst Framelits and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next up is my epoxy embellishment. I punched out a piece of Window Sheet with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch and spread some Crystal Effect over the top.

The neat thing is that as long as you don’t put too much Crystal Effects on it stops at the edge of the Window Sheet. You need to set them aside for at least 24 hours to make sure that they are completely dry. I stamped the cake from the Amazing Birthday Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight and ran it through my Zyron Sticker Maker face down and adhered it to the back of the Window Sheet. Some Fast Fuse makes sure that it will stay in place. Another piece of Real Red is cut out with the Little Letters Thinlits and adhered to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals pieces. My greeting is from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and is cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits. I loved making the epoxy embellishments, they are so much fun and it’s great to be able to customize them to whatever you need!

My last project is a simple tag. I stamped the greeting from the Amazing Birthday Stamp Set in Tempting Turquoise and punched the tag with the Angled Tag Topper Punch. Another one of the epoxy embellishments is adhered to the bottom and a Mini Clothes Pin holds it to one if the Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags. I always need something quick to make to put on a gift and this definitely fits the bill! I made some extra epoxy embellishments and now can just stamp and adhere what I need to the back of them!
