Today our DT Sharon has a really quick and simple tag to share with you that can be adapted to any creation you are making ie. greeting card, artist trading card or coin, journal page.
She started with a blank tag and used decorating chalks through a stencil.
After spray sealing the chalks she added a fun "Bee" stamp by Pam Bray along with a "Sunshine" word stamp from the Sunshine Cherub set!
To finish the tag was edged with a black Posca pen and string tied at the top.
An alternate idea is to stamp onto kraft card and fussy cut the images and adhere to the tag!
A great idea for any BPM stamps you have!

These ATC backgrounds were done on watercolor paper because there were lots of wet mediums applied to the surface. I painted the backgrounds with Fushia watercolors then added orange acrylic paint over that and stamped with the Script stamp from the Correspondence stamp set.
Then Unicorn Wishes stamps were stamped on white cardstock that was gelli printed and heat embossed in black. One of the unicorns was colored with markers while the other one was left as is from the gelli print.
The unicorns were too long to fit on the ATC, so cut off the tail of the longest one and attach it with a small brad, now the tail will move. The word tags were added with a small brad also.
This technique could be used for any number of items that don't fit on the ATC. Let me see what you come up with that is interactive on your ATCs!!

Hello! Susie on the blog today with a "Magical" bookmark!
"Once upon a time..." is a phrase that brings back so many happy memories. I remember the Christmas my parents gave me my first real book - a huge collection of fairy tales. This was a book that was heavy on words and light on illustrations so my imagination was instantly engaged. That was (and still is) a book that deserves a very special bookmark!
Hello, hello! Samantha here with an "enlightening" card to share with you today. I must preface this tutorial with the warning that this card is a snarky one and there will be a very mild swear word involved. If that is something you are uncomfortable with please go no further.

Let's get started! For this card you will need the following supplies:
Begin by stamping the light bulb all over your white cardstock panel in many different colors of ink.
Stamp the light bulb onto a scrap piece of white cardstock. Cover it in sticky embossing ink on only the glass part of the image. Heat set with clear embossing powder. Do this over and over again until you get your desired thickness. I believe I did this about twenty times in all. This gives the light bulb a super cool dimensional appearance.
Carefully cut the light bulb out. Here is a closeup and I want you to look carefully at the following image because I want to show you something.
Do you see the difference between this image and the first? In the above image I went around the edges with a black marker. This is something I do to all the images I fussy cut because it gives them a more finished appearance.
Mount your card panel to your cardbase. I like how trimming the panel to 4" x 5.5" gives us a border on just the sides. Add your fussy cut light bulb to the card panel with dimensional foam adhesive.
Use your label maker to spell out the phrase "Some people are like light bulbs". Layer onto scrap cardstock in the color of your choice, trim and adhere to the card front. I'll let you see for yourself what the inside, snarky sentiment will say. Once more, please do not look if mild swearing bothers you.
So, what do you think? Be sure to head on over to the BPM Facebook Fan group and tell us what your thoughts on snarky cards like this are. Do you like them? Are there any snarky sentiments you would like to see paired with a BPM stamp and made into a card?
I hope you have all been enjoying the DT makes this month and getting some ideas and inspiration for layering on your creations!

Tools: heat gun, ruler, scissors, knife, glue, double sided tape or glue stick, hole punch
Cut your black background card to size and score in the middle and fold in half.
Cut your "painty" card to just smaller than the front of the base cards so when it is ready to adhere it leaves a nice black border around the outside.
Next step is to stamp and emboss all the card elements. Use the garland flowers to stamp on the painty card with theblack embossing powder. Stamp the small butterfly onto black card and emboss with white powder and fussy cut. Stamp the "love" word onto black card and emboss in white and free hand cut the word.
Glue the embossed painty card to the gift card front and then arrange and glue your butterfly, muslin cloth and word to the front.
Use a small hole punch and punch a hole in the top corner of the card to attach twine.
Hope you have enjoyed my embossed and layered gift tags - a perfect way to personalise your gifts - even better if your gifts are also handmade!!

Hello! Susie on the blog today with a DIY twist on a traditional party game!
Most of us have played "pin the tail on the donkey" in our lifetimes, right? It's a simple party game that is fun for all ages. I remember a fairy themed party I had for my daughter when she was in 1st grade and we adapted that game to "put a flower in the fairy's hair" with a store bought poster. I have re-created the game for you today using a really cute winking fairy from one of the Anime Fairy rubber stamp sets!
