FUSION Christmas at Wine O'clock

Inspired by this fortnight FUSION inspiration photo to to recreate a wine bottle gift tag in time for the festive season. The tag was created by cutting a piece of heavy weight MME patterned cardstock just over two inches wide and just over seven inches long, and scoring and folding it so one side is just over five inches, and the other side is just over two inches long. This strip was placed in the largest Paper Smooches Flag Tag die, with the fold just inside the top flat edge of the die, so that when it goes through the die cutter, the folded end remains attached. A one inch hole was then punched in the shorter end of the beer bottle tag and the corners rounded, so this folded flap can be used to hang the tag from the bottleneck. The Paper Smooches Enchanted Elves reindeer was stamped on woodgrain paper, glued to a piece of cardstock for extra strength when fussy cutting. A red Kaisercraft rhinestone and googly eye highlight his red-nosed face. The Paper Smooches Christmas Words sentiment was cut from two shades of green paper, with the darker green words set into the negative space left in the lighter green paper, leaving a bit of the striped tag to peek through, and decorated with a sprig of die cut Paper Smooches Ponsettia holly.

The Joy of FUSION...

So this fortnights FUSION card took a whole different direction from where it started (exit stage right lol!) I tipped the fabulous FUSION sketch on its side, created the super cute fishtail flag using MME On The Bright Side paper die cut with Paper Smooches fishtail flag die, the rectangle became my Winnie & Walter Joy diecut and the circle is this gorgeous Uniquely Creative Whimsy Bunnies stamps, paper pieced in Echo Park Sweet Day papers. Admittedly I did add my own bunny smile and balloon string to the stamps, before adding this gorgeous sentiment, also from Uniquely Creative Whimsy Bunnies, and inked the edges in Distress Oxide Evergreen Bough.

Daisied and conFUSIONed...

Love that we are almost in Spring on this side of the world, and there is nothing like some gorgeous daisies to brighten up your day wherever you are!

Inspired by this gorgeous sketch and happy colours of the FUSION inspiration photo this fortnight, I combined these super cute stitched daisy diecuts from MFT with a stitched circle from Lil Inkers, atop a scrap of perfect baby blue paper from my stash. I might have just happened to pick up these gorgeous Uniquely Creative diecut sentiments from Paperific, where I thought I would make an effort to support home grown companies!

Darkest Nights, Brightest Stars FUSION

I LOVE this fortnights FUSION inspiration even more so than usual! 

Focusing on the FUSION inspiration photo, I was inspired to create my very first alcohol inks on Yupo paper background, using blues, black, white and silver, and adding silver foiled paper, silver sequin stars and this perfectly gorgeous MFT Shining Stars diecut in silver glitter paper, and Mama Elephant Shooting Star sentiment in white embossing powder on MFT fishtail banner, topped with MFT stitched diecut frame.
