Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. This workshop will show you how to make this textured shaker tag using the following main products…… The Creative Expressions MDF door tag , the Sue Wilson festive collection snow globe and cottage snow globe scene die. The shaker feature uses the Creative Expressions Christmas rose pre cut stamps cut out using the Sue Wilson Christmas rose die and then the Cosmic Shimmer iced snow glitter jewels are used in the Creative Expressions treat cup shaker section to make the snowy effect. The whole tag is covered using the Cosmic Shimmer polar white sparkle paste.

Step 2. Paint a layer of the Cosmic Shimmer Gesso over the top of the mdf tag.

2 2 (Copy)

Step 3. You can dab a scrunched up piece of kitchen roll over the wet gesso to create a rough stippled effect to the tag.

3 3 (Copy)

Step 4. You will be left with this nice effect which will be covered with the Cosmic Shimmer sparkle texture paste later on and it I feel it will just give the area a nice surface for the paste to be added onto.

4 4 (Copy)

Step 5. Stamp the smallest and 2nd size Christmas rose onto a piece of Foundations icicle card, coconut white card and also vellum using black archival ink and the secure the relevant die over the stamped image using low tack tape before running them through the Grand Calibur die cutting machine and then back through with the embossing sandwich.

You can use already cut and stamped roses left over from other projects as well !!!

For this project you`ll need

1 ~ 2nd size rose in icicle card, coconut card and vellum & then

1 ~ smallest rose in the same materials as above.

Take the rose die shapes and colour them with the dusty concord ink pad on a smoothie leaving the vellum roses plain.

5 5 (Copy)

Step 6. Cut some coconut card using the small leaf die and the small flower centres from the Sue Wilson Christmas rose die set.

6 6 (Copy)

Step 7. Take a piece of Foundations coconut card and attach the snow globe die so just the main circle shape is placed on the card and also add the whole circle. Secure the dies in place with some low tack tape and pass the dies through the Grand Calibur die cutting machine. Once the snow globe section is cut remove the card and turn the circle die area around and the slot the card back into the edge of the die. Secure the die onto the card using the low tack tape and then cut the card the die cutting machine. Set a side the larger circle for later.

Step 8. Take some of the Cosmic Shimmer polar white sparkle texture paste out of the pot using the end of a paint brush and place it on a non stick craft mat. Place the card smaller card circle onto the mat……

8 8 (Copy)

Step 9. ……before adding the sparkle paste onto a small piece of cut`n`dry foam and dabbing it all over the circle.

9 9 (Copy)

Step 10. Repeat the process and add a thin complete layer over the dried gesso MDF tag.

10 10 (Copy)

Step 11. Go back in with the piece of cut`n`dry foam to tap some extra Cosmic Shimmer polar white sparkle texture paste over the mdf tag in the bottom corner of the tag and use your finger if more texture is needed.

11 11 (Copy)

Step 12. Now you have a lovely texture over the MDF tag. Set this a side to dry or if you are careful you can use a heat tool to speed up the process. Just don`t over do the heat as it could burn the paste.

12 12 (Copy)

Step 13. Scoop up the excess sparkle paste with the foam or the end of the paint brush and place it back in the texture paste pot. Make sure the paste is away from edges of the pot and mixed in with the remaining paste.

13 13 (Copy)

Step 14. Now the tag is ready to work on it will look like this.

14 14 (Copy)

Step 15. Add the worked textured paste circle onto the larger cut circle die piece using some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue.

15 15 (Copy)

Step 16. Take 1 medium and 1 small icicle Christmas rose and tap some of the paste which remains on the cut`n`dry foam over the roses as this will give the flowers a lovely extra sparkle.

16 16 (Copy)

Step 17. Assemble 3 of the small roses onto the sparkle circle adding a white small centre with a pearl stuck in each of the flower centres. Arrange 2 of the rose leaves either side of the rose making sure you curve them before sticking them down. IT`S VERY IMPORTANT to make sure the flowers and leaves remain within the circle edge as the treat cup will need to be added over the top.

17 17 (Copy)

Step 18. Here is a close up of the 3 different textured roses on the sparkle circle background.

18 18 (Copy)

Step 19. Either add a small amount of the Cosmic Shimmer dries glue around the edge of the circle card only……

19 19 (Copy)

Step 20. …… or I have found that some silicone glue does the trick nicely with the acetate, so add some of the Cosmic Shimmer iced snow glitter jewels into the treat cup and then add a circle of the glue around the inner rim of the treat cup.

20 20 (Copy)

Step 21. Select the worked and dried stuck down flower circle and flip it over and stick it over the treat cup so all the glitter jewels stay facing down in the cup.

21 21 (Copy)

Step 22. Once you know the circle is pressed down / sealed and the glue is starting to go off then flip the shaker cup back over to reveal the sealed in glitter jewels. Decide where you want the rose to lay and in this case I want it on the right hand top side of the tag to mirror where the bottom left hand side larger roses will go.

22 22 (Copy)

Step 23. Just lay the shaker over the tag to see where it needs to be glued later on.

23 23 (Copy)

Step 24. Cut another piece of white card using the snow globe outer and the inner circle die. Once cut take a pair of scissors and continue to cut around the base of the globe to make a complete cut out circle.

24 24 (Copy)

Step 25. Check that the circle fits over the shaker treat cup ok. IT WILL AS THEY ARE DESIGNED TO !!!! Stipple some of the sparkle texture paste over the circle when it`s just on the craft mat and dry the piece.

25 25 (Copy)

Step 26. Add the sparkle circle back over the treat cup using some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue.

26 26 (Copy)

Step 27. Take the Creative Expressions pearl strips ~ double white and trim down the centre of the pearls to make a single row of pearls.

27 27 (Copy)

Step 28. Now add some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue on the circle backing and add the shaker section to the top of the tag. Add a line of silicone glue around the side depth of the shaker cup / backing circle card.

28 28 (Copy)

Step 29. Wrap the pearls around the treat cup glue pressing the pearls down with a pokey tool to ensure they have taken on the glue.

29 29 (Copy)

Step 30. Trim the last pearl off when the pearls have completed a full circle and again push that pearls into the glue.

30 30 (Copy)

Step 31. Make a bow out of the Creative Expressions finishing touches satin off white ribbon and attach it to the bottom corner of the shaker cup.

31 31 (Copy)

Step 32. Add the matching larger Christmas roses to the bottom left hand side of the tag. Add the white rose leaves around the edges of the roses curving them as you secure them down.

32 32 (Copy)

Step 33. Add the white centres and a single pearl in each flower.

33 33 (Copy)

Step 34. Take some Creative Expressions silver dream metallic gilding polish and add it onto a small piece of cut`n`dry foam ( this is so you can get the polish around the small areas of the tag) colour all of the edges of the tag in the silver to neaten and finish off the tag or use some Creative Expressions gilding wax if not.
