Get More Impact from Floral Frame Dies

 Hello Crafty Friends. Today I am presenting a way to step up a floral frame die for CutCardStock by trimming and piecing cardstock of different colors to get more impact.

Classic Linen Cardstock in White Pearl and Gold Pearl add additional shine to this project!

Wintery Tag Using Multiple Techniques

 Create a Home Decor Tag using multiple create techniques! Hi, I am posting for The Funkie Junkie Boutique today.


I continue on my tag decor journey with a Wintery Scene using multiple creative techniques.

The video is here: https://youtu.be/TOJx3sMdElc


Create the Base

Trim a piece of Distress Watercolor Paper to fit a Mini Etcetera Tag.

Emboss the top left side with the Pine Branches Embossing folder.

Using a stamp positioner and Embossing Ink, arrange a stamp a few snowflakes on the watercolor piece. Use clear embossing powder and heat set.


Ink smoosh the background with Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky and Speckled Egg Distress Inks to create a cloudy winter sky. Once the inks are completely dry, use Distress Crayons (Rustic Wilderness and Vintage Photo) to add color to the Pine Branches. Use a Watercolor Brush to smooth the color out.

Attach a few small snowflakes from the Twig&Stump die set. I used sparkly paper.

Die Cut the Houses

Die Cut two houses and coordinating Roofs using the Paper Village Die set. Use chipboard or recycled cardboard such a Kleenex boxes or cereal boxes. Paint with white Gesso. Once the pieces are dry, glue two house pieces together and trim so you have one front plus about 1/2 inch of the two side panels. Score the side panels at 1/4 inch so you now have 1/4 inch side plus1/4 inch to attach to the base. Paint the roofs with Black Acrylic Paint.

Coat the two houses with and Embossing Dauber and coat one house with Rustic Wilderness Embossing Glaze and the other with Prize Ribbon Embossing Glaze. Heat set and set aside.


Finish the Additional Pieces 

Select two small tress and set in a box so you can spray without covering your craft area. Spray the trees with Rustic Wilderness Distress Ink and Oxide Sprays and set aside. Once dry, add some Collage Medium to the craft mat, pick up with a pallet knife and spread vertically up the trees. Add Mica Flakes and set aside.


Use Rustic Wilderness Embossing Glaze with the Embossing Dauber to cover the Quote Chip of your choice. Heat set.

Make a shelf for the scene using chipboard. Cut the board to the width of the Etcetera Tag and 2 1/2 inches wide. Score at 1/4, 1 inch, and 1 3/4 inches. Fld and glue the 1/4 inch piece together.

Assemble the Tag


Use Collage Medium to attach the Watercolor Panel to the Etcetera Tag and set aside to dry. Ink the edges with Uncharted Mariner Ink.

Use a glue gun to attach the shelf. The houses can be attached with hot glue on the side 1/4 inch panels. Attach the roofs.

Using the pallet knife, spread Snowfall Grit Paste on the shelf and the roof edges. Add Rock Candy Glitter using a Glitter Duster.

Use the hot glue gun to attach the trees in the center between the houses and the Quote Chip below the shelf.
