{Metal} Toy Soldier Christmas Tag

You may have seen this Toy Soldier before HERE.  I liked him so much I decided to recreate him using more colour.  I made this tag 3x making subtle changes with colour, felt and embossing folders. As before I cut my Toy Soldier, pine cone and sprig of metallic greenery out using Oven Liners, those trays that sit at the bottom of your oven to catch spills.  I find these are durable to handle my impatient hand! 
 
How about a grunge board cut of 25 and the middle gear using TH dies.  A little felt for the accents on the Toy Soldier is always fun! 

 
I embossed with my snowflake die, painted the whole thing with blue acrylic paint, wait for it to dry then sand off the paint to expose your snowflakes.  To make it POP I apply a generous amount of Versa Mark over the whole tag then coat with UTEE, heat for a thick clear emboss!  Then hot glue some jingle bells as holy berries.  I added a little alcohol ink for the cone and greenery.


I added the Tim Holtz Charm, attached the bow from the Movers and Shapers Wreath and added a layer of sparkle with red Stickles. 

 
Watch for more Holiday Tags coming up.  Including the variation of this one.

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. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
