Mason Jar Ornie Gift Tag

This is another creation I made by painting an air freshener blank--just like the Faux Primitive Gingerbread Ornie I painted last week. It is shaped like a Mason Jar, which I thought was neat. These come in a plain buff color. So I just had fun painting it to look more like a real Mason jar.

Mason Jar Ornie Hang Tag

I left it kind of plain because after I finished it, I thought this could definitely be an ornie, but it could also be a fun hang tag for a gift too. There's plenty of space to write names on it. I just regular craft acrylics to create this--a soft blue color and some metallic silver. I am not sure what I'll end up doing with it really, but I love how it turned out and it was fun to paint.

Faux Primitive Gingerbread Ornie

I was looking for some of my muslin bags over the weekend while I was working in my studio. When I finally found the box I was looking for and started digging through it, I found some air freshener blanks I had purchased several years ago (and from where, I cannot recall) inside the box. There were two different packages in there: one was a Mason Jar shape and the other was a Gingerbread shape. Yay! I love finding things in my studio that I forgot I even had. LOL.

Anyhoots, I decided to paint the Gingerbread shape so that he'd look like a Primitive Gingerbread man. And I just love how it turned out.

What's cool about these air freshener blanks is that they are thick and they have texture to them, since of course they are actually made to hold scent. So after painting this one, it really has the look of actual gingerbread. I love it! I painted it brown first, then I grungy'd up the edges with some Distress Ink. And then I used black and white acrylic paint pens to add the embellishments, and I finished it off with a homespun tie. I could easily punch a hole through the top to hang it as an ornie. Or it could be a bowl filler, or sit on a shelf. Such a fun little prim ginger project. :)

Primitive Sheep Grungy Tag

I felt like making a Primitive Hangtag over the weekend, and since I didn't have time to do much crafting after a full day of painting in my studio, this was the perfect solution to a quick prim craft project.

Primitive Sheep Grungy Tag

Just a simple grungy'd up hang tag that I stamped with a cute Primitive Sheep stamp, and then I embellished it just a bit around the edges with a black pen. Cute and prim, and super easy!

Simple Ditty Bag

I'm still kind of on a stamping kick where my crafting is concerned, so I created this Simple Ditty Bag using a recent stamp purchase to share with you.

Primitive Simple Ditty Bag

The Willow Tree is part of a stamp set that I got on Blitsy recently. I think the text sentiment came with that too, if I recall correctly. I grungy'd up the Muslin Bag first, of course, then I stamped it. Simple, cute, and prim. My favorite combination.

Twinkle Twinkle Primitive Card

After finding some great Primitive Rubber Stamps, which I blogged to you about last month, I finally got a chance to get back into my studio and put some of them to use. Although I used stamps that I found a few days after my other stamp purchase when I did this project. This was my first creation with some of the new stamps. It's a grungy Kraft card, which I turned into some Altered Art, primitive style.

Twinkle Twinkle Mason Jar Primitive Card

I created this using three different clear acrylic stamps. The Mason Jar is one, the Stars are another, and the text sentiment is the other. The Mason Jar stamp is small (this is a 4x6 card) and is by Dear Izzy. I don't remember where I purchased that one, but it comes with a few even smaller stamps that have text and so forth. The Stars and the text sentiment came together I got them from the Unity Stamp Company.

I stamped the stars first, then stamped the Mason Jar, and then the text. And to add the yellow to the stars I used a little watered down Tim Holtz Distress Paint. The grungy edges were created with a Walnut Stain Distress Ink, also by Tim Holtz. I decided it would be neat to use the stars to create a matching envelope as well. More stamped projects to come soon!

Primitive Rubber Stamps

I love great Primitive Finds, especially when they can help me do some more crafting! So I was thrilled last night when I saw these rubber stamps over on Blitsy. And I wanted to share my find with you.

Unity Primitive Rubber Stamps

The cow isn't so much primitive-looking, but I absolutely LOVE the sheep and the tree, and the house is cute too. So I know I'll have fun using these when they arrive. So stay tuned for that! In the meantime, if you want to get some of these stamps for yourself, hop on over via the link below.


And you better hurry. Items that are for sale on Blitsy are only there for a limited time, so if you want things from that site you have to buy them right away!

Happy Stamping!
