Welcome to the Imagine Craft and Stampendous Blog Hop.

I am so excited to be part of this Hop and I hope you enjoy my project!

A year ago I bought my friend a car charm made out of metal, I thought cute idea! I should make one out of paper - never got around to it, until now! I received this kit from Stampendous, called Art Kraftboard Angel. My first thought? Perfect car charm!

Supplies used:

Imagine Crafts/ TSUKINEKO 
  • Radiant Neon - Electric Orange, Electric Yellow, Electric Green
  • StazOn opaque Cotton White
  • Memento Tuxedo Black
  • GooseBumps Shimmer Spray
  • Fantastix coloring tool

  • Fragments Hot Pink and Hot Lime
  • Shaved Ice
  • Kraftboard Angel Wings

The first thing I did was cover the chipboard tag and heart with a dauber using StazOn Opaque Cotton White as my base. Then I went over it using Radiant Neon Electric Yellow and then stamped the design with Radiant Neon Electric Orange.

Next I attached the diecut sticky panel to the small Kraftboard tag, and sprinkled it with Hot Lime and Hot Pink Colored Fragments I also added some Shaved Ice and burnished it in with my finger.

I highlighted parts of the quote with Radiant Neon Electric Green using using a Fantastix.

Next, I stamped the wings using Memento Tuxedo Black and then daubed them with Radiant Neon Electric Yellow. I also added some color to the banner. I then sprayed the pieces with GooseBumps for some added shine.

I attached the banner to the heart using a blingy brad, cut the wings in half and glued them to each side of the heart. After punching a hole at the top and bottom of the large tag I added some ribbon. You could also add some charms and beads too.

After glueing the heart on the bottom of tag I was done!!!

I love the way my car charm looks hanging in my car.

I'm thinking that this would also make a great Christmas ornament.

Here's another one I made using the new rich new Stazon minis.

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial. Thanks for stopping by.
