Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Christmas Torn Paper Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz 1

Hello, my talented crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge this week. At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we want to see your creation with "Tear It Up" elements. I am looking forward to seeing what you create!

I made a mixed media holiday tag with torn corrugate paper using Idea-Ology Textured Surfaces and decorated it with Tim Holtz Remnant Christmas Rubs.

To start this project, I applied the crackle paint on this size 8 kraft tag, then applied Distress Paints on the tag randomly. I attached the metal clip and snowflake that were colored with Distress Paints on the tag.

The center of the tag was decorated with layered torn corrugate paper and kraft paper. I attached the wreath and die cut sentiment using Tombow Mono Glue and Tombow Adhesive Tab for dimensional effect.

More sentiments were added with stickers and colored word band. I outlined and distressed the edges of the tag using Faber-Castell Big Brush Pen to finish this project. 

I always enjoy creating Christmas and holiday projects and have fun with these torn elements on this piece this week. I hope this tag inspired you to create and join us for this "Tear It Up" challenge. Happy crafting!

Hi, my beautiful crafty friends, I hope you all had a great weekend. Now, let's have fun and create for the the new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, our theme is "IT'S A STITCH UP" - real, die created or faux - simply add some stitches onto your creation!

I created a Christmas card this week with stitches on the background and using Tim Holtz Christmas Time Ephemera Pack and Idea-Ology Christmas Word Bands Findings to decorate the card.

To start this project, I trimmed the white card stock and made the 4.25" X 5.5" card base. On a piece of watercolor paper, I sprayed the Distress Spray Stain over Tim Holtz stencil with different shades to make the background pattern and colors. 

The sprayed watercolor paper was trimmed .25" smaller than the card base on each side and pasted on the card base using double side tape. I sewed the edges of the watercolor paper and the card base using a sewing machine.

The photo from Tim Holtz Christmas Ephemera Pack was layered with corrugate paper and pasted on the card. I added more Christmas elements and glued a cute decorative deer that was colored with Distress Paint as the final touch,

This is my first Christmas creation for this year and I really enjoyed sewing with my sewing machine again after my last sewn project long time ago. I hope this card inspired you to create with us this week.  Happy crafting!
