Get Well & SNEAK PEAK!

It was supposed to be a simple Get Well card!  It turned out a little more detailed then I thought it would.  But then I never know how anything I make will turn out in the end.  Also, Scrappy Moms Stamps is releasing 2 new sets.  So here is my sneak peak at the new Mini Messages.

What can I say, I am really into the Umbrella Man die.  Are you getting totally sick of him yet?  But doesn't he fit with the card!  I cut the card stock at 9 1/4" by 8" then scored down the center.  I wanted a tall legal size envelope...or is that a bill size? 


I ran my card through my cuttlebug with Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.  Then I glued on the greyish buttons on the flowers.  I did change all the buttons as I had them blue at first.  As the card took form I needed to make the changes.  Pretty eh?


I also decorated the inside of the card with the coordinating DP from the umbrella.  It's a thick glitter paper.  The wide black ribbon I saved from a Disneyland purchase this past summer.  Don't throw anything away!  I then ran some white card stock through my Tiny Tags die and stamped an Antique Ledger stamp for background.  The "Get Well" sentiment is from the new Mini Messages set. 


I stamped this great vintage stamp in versamark to make a resist for the 3" envelope, something for my tag to tuck in too.  I distressed with TH Pumice Stone and Black Soot...did I get that right?  OK grey and black!  A great spot to tuck a little note.  I finished the tag with the same Disney ribbon and an antique brad.


I punched the inside of the DP with the Martha Stewart Heart border punch.  I saved the hearts for the Umbrella Man.  I like how they trickle.  Then I stamps "Thinking of You" right onto the card...another stamp from Mini Messages.


I kept the card masculine for my intended family member. 

Thanks for popping in.  Do you have a favorite part of the card?  I love the mini envelope and tag.  What a nice treat when it gets opened.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…
