Love TAGPlorations Blog Hop Day 7

Hello everyone… Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!!! May you have a love-filled day.

Today is the Day 7 of the Love TAGplorations Blog Hop. It is the last day of the blog hop and also link up. There are many gorgeous inspirations from the STAMPlorations Girls on the blog today. I hope you all will come blog-hopping with us! Do not forget to leave comment along the way for chances to enter the giveaway (info at the bottom of this post).

And for this last day of blog hop, I created this card mixed media card:

Directly on the card base, I added some texture paste and fine glitter using the Zen Hearts ARTplorations Stencil. Set aside to dry, or you can dry it with heat gun but need to be careful not get too hot, becuase it will cause some bubbles on the texture paste.

While waiting for the embossed background to dry, I colored one of the page from Color Blooms Coloring Book using Spectrum Noir Colorsista Pencils Set 4.

Then using 2 sizes of Luggage Tags Nesting Dies CUTplorations, I die cut a black cardstock that I already added some of the gold paint from Finetect Mica Watercolor Paint, Metallic Gold.

I added the colored page on the back of the window tag with some non-wrinkle glue and cut out the extra with scissors. Then I added some of the gold sequing ribbon on it with mini stapler.

The sentiment is from Smile stamp set that I simply stamped it on a white cardstock with black archival ink and cut out.

Final step is adding the tag on the card after I made sure the embossing paste dried well. I use 3D foam tape to add the tag and sentiment on it.

And check out the glittery embossed background and shiny gold metallic watercolor paint on the tag:
