How To Make These Cute Birthday Tag Critters

March 12, 2019

Hey Friends. It’s EK Gorman here today sharing some tags I created using the some of the new critter dies sets.

One of my favorite things about the new critter dies from Joset is that they are so incredibly versatile. What was originally designed for some safari fun, can easily be turned into a bit of everyday birthday day labels. Today, I am taking a few of the new critter dies and turning them into the perfect tags to hang from birthday presents for both the old and young.

Step One: Die cut the piece from the Zebra die set and some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Color the zebra strip die cuts with some alcohol markers. I used N8 copics.

Step Three: Color the hair, tail and hooves with alcohol markers. I used N6, N8, and 100.

Step Four: Color the body, head, legs and ears with alcohol markers. I used N0, N2, and N4.

Step Five: Color the nose and ears with alcohol markers. I used R00, R20, and R22.

Step Six: Assemble the body of the Zebra using Kids Choice Glue.

Step Seven: Using Kids Choice glue, add the zebra stripes to the body. Tweezers help in the placing of these small parts. I used the ones from the 4pc all Metal tool set.

Step Eight: Repeat Steps one through seven, but using the Monkey die set and the Little Chick die set. The Monkey parts were colored with E21, E23, E25, E27 and E29. The Little Chick was colored with Y00, Y02, Y06 and Y08 plus YR15 and YR16.

Step Nine: Die cut balloons, party hats and fun party accessories from the Party Accessories die set. Color them with alcohol markers. I used RV00, RV02, RV04 and RV06 for the pink accessories, R05, R24, R29 and R89 for the red accessories, Y21, Y26 and Y28 for the gold crown, B12, B16 and B18 for the blue balloon, and N4, N6, and N8 for the black mustache. Adhere the accessories to the critters with Kids Choice Glue.

Step Ten: Trim a piece of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock, True Blue Soft Finish Cardstock and Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. Then die cut the top of the tag from the Tags & More Lattice die set. Trim off any excess paper.

Step Eleven: Add the lattice die cut effect to both the top and the bottom of the tags using the Tags & More Lattice dies.

Step Twelve: Add tag reinforcements from the tag die set to the top of the tags. I mixed and matched paper colors to add a bit of whimsy to the card.


Step Thirteen: Adhere the critters and party accessories to the tags. Stamp a sentiment onto each tag using the Safari Sayings sentiment stamp set. Finally, add some colorful ribbon to the top of each tag. I also added some glossy accents to the top of all they party accessories so that the accessories were shinny.

Thank you for peeking in today to my project today. I hope you think they are as much fun as I do. Make sure to share how you are playing with the collection of new critter dies over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Page.

Until then, happy crafting!

Hey Friends!  It’s EK here to share a bit of holiday fun.  I don’t know about you, but I think these days people take the holidays a little too seriously and we all could inject some fun back into our holidays.  I think we as adults forget sometimes what the magic of Christmas should be, and instead craft and create elegant and fancy holiday decor.  Today I am trying to invent with my child’s mind and create a really fun and magic-filled project.

Grow, Bloom, Blossom

April 30, 2018

Hey Everyone!  It’s Ek here, and I am coming in sharing a bit of spring.  It seems that winter has finally (or hopefully) tucked herself in to hibernate and the glory of spring is finally upon my household.  My daughters and I spent much of last weekend planting the garden, and my youngest demanded that this year we have flowers for the bees to feast upon.  Needless to say, her enthusiasm won me over and we spent a full afternoon picking out flowers to plant and getting them into the ground and into pots.  It is one of those memories I don’t want to forget so I decided to capture the moment with this week’s project using both the Garden Party stamp set and Garden Scene die set.

A Little Rain

January 29, 2018

 

Hello everyone!  EK Gorman here hoping your day is filled with sunshine instead of rain.  Where I am, it is no longer as cold as it was earlier this month and all the snow is gone, but now our skies are filled with clouds and rain, so I felt it was only fitting to create a card that brings out the hope of sunshine despite the wet weather.  The new stamp set from Krista Schneider, April Showers, is the perfect stamp set for such a card.  I created a little rainy Copic-colored card that celebrates the sunshine within the showers.
