Xyron & Epiphany Crafts Team Up

Good morning everyone!!  Today i'm super excited to share with you a project created with some yummy goodies.  The fabulous peeps at Epiphany Crafts shared some of their amazing products with the Xyron DT.....so this week we are sharing our creations.

I opened the box and was super excited to see the Oval 25 punch, Bubbles & Metal Settings....total SCORE!  So I will show you what my end result is and then share a couple of close up photos for you.

To start this creation I took a Ranger Manila tag #8 and cut a piece of pattern paper to size.  I used Graphic 45 Bird Song for this one.  Once the paper was cut I adhered the pattern paper to my tag using my Xyron Mega Runner.  I then inked the edges with Ranger Distress Ink (Walnut Stain).  I also did a little fussy cutting the birds & branches out of the pattern paper and inked the edges of those as well.

So as you can see there is a little chicken wire stencil action in the background of the tag.  I did that with Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and let it dry before I placed anything else on the tag.  I stained some seam binding and tied that around the bottom of the tag.  The flowers are Petaloo flowers dipped in beeswax.  While I was letting those dry, I took that fabulous looking Epiphany Oval Metal Setting and painted it with gesso to turn it white....LOVE LOVE LOVE the way that turned out.  I had a stamp that said "dream", so I stamped that on paper, centered it in the punch and punched it out.  I ran the stamped word through my Xyron 1.5" create-a-sticker and placed it on the setting, then placed the bubble cap over it.  I popped up the images that I cut out on the tag, then adhered the flowers on the lower left side.  I used the UBER FABULOUS new tape from Xyron High Tack Tape and it made that metal setting stick with ease!

Here is a little close up of the top of the tag.  You can see the images that I cut out of the paper really well here.  I had a couple of corners in my stash that I painted with gesso and adhered them on the top corners of the tag.

Supplies Used:
Xyron Adhesive- Mega Runner, High Tack Tape & 1.5" create-a-sticker
Epiphany Crafts - Oval 25 punch, bubbles & metal settings
Graphic 45 - Bird Song paper
