12 Tags of Christmas; #4


QUICK POST...I have to work on tags 5 and 6!

Here's my version of Tim's Tag #4.  I borrowed the snowman die, however any snowman cut from any Cricut cart will do.  I don't have the "25" movers and shakers die so I cut at 2" this 25 from Sophisticated cart.  I should have cut them at 1 3/4" but that's OK. 

I used some natural white ribbon then frayed the edges.  I used some small beads from my daughters bead kit for the snowman's hat. 

I used some silver ribbon for the top I picked up from the $1 store, then added some pipe cleaner wrapped around a pen to make it curly. 

The 25 is covered with my Diamond Glaze and I added MS white glitter glue on the snow flake die. 


OK there's tag #4...not too bad.  Remember, it's all about the techniques more than about having the right supplies.  Thank you SOOOO much for following my 12 Tags of Christmas and how I craft them.  It's my fist time making them and I am loving the challenge!  Thank you for all your super sweet comments and sharing with me that you feel inspired to try them too.  It truly means a lot to me and makes me want to keep going!

Did you see the button I added?  How cool!  Keep watching for more tags as I get them done.

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
