Spring Tag- Corkboard Tags


Altered Corkboard Spring Tag

As promised the first of my Four Seasons Tags, SPRING!

When I was deciding on my Altered Corkboard project I decided to use the Four Seasons as an inspirational point.  This way no matter what time of year I am crafting I can look at my board for lots of ideas, techniques and supplies.

For the Spring tag I just learned about making Mosaic Butterflies.  Of course they needed to show up here.  I went for a fresh wet spring like feel with the Umbrella Man die, glue rain drops and metal flower accents.
Spring always has fresh green grass, flowers and butterflies.  The grass is left over fake Christmas Tree branches, trimmed and glued.  I punched metal flowers using oven liner, then inked with alcohol inks and finished off with colourful brads.  A crystal blue butterfly, a frog and a Stella Beer cap...summer is coming afterall. 

For Umbrella Mans umbrella I added some dimension using honeycomb paper.  Third times the charm cutting it out.  I'm new to Honeycomb Paper, but the learning curve was quick. I learned I needed to cut half of the umbrella and not all of it.  That way when you open it it honeycombs open.  I made raindrops with my hot glue and attached them to hang off as if they are dripping.

I topped the umbrella with a the TH crown, embossed gold and topped with some pearl embellishments.  They were white so I coloured with my alcohol ink.

The house is embossed with the TH brick, inked with Painted Peel and then sanded for a weathered look.  More flowers and water dips were added.

Come Back tomorrow for the Summer Tag.

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…

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…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
