Wedding Invitation- Decontructed

I went to a wedding on the weekend and that means a card.  UGH...I wish I had taken a photo of the invitation because I deconstructed the card to make my card.  I thought it would be sentimental. 
 
I had my Jalopy all cut on grunge, inked with black and distressed with Walnut Stain ink.  A coat of Rock Candy crackle and this car looks old and leathery! I cut the wedding invitation (the part with all the info) and mounted the car on it.  Although, I should have jotted down the Church address, time and reception.  Oops!
 
 
I ventured out in a snowstorm to look for wee bells but couldn't find any yet.  So I tied 3 red jingle bells to the rear to simulate wedding bells.
 
 
I stamped my TH Ticket stamp then stamped again in red with this borrowed "MR &MRS" Teresa Collins stamp.

 
Cutting up more of the invitation I used my TH Pocket Envelope die cut for the card holder.  Then with the Cargo Stensil die I cut the #10, the day they were married.  Layer some acetate behind the number and then I cut the fold off.  I used my 1"circle punch for the notch.

 
The inside of the card is stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps "So Happy for You" from Mini Messages stamp set.
 
 
All opened up!

 
Friday was a very snowy cold day so it was pretty dark out.  Happily the wedding day was sunny with a fresh blanket of snow...but it was cold!

 
Sometimes taking an invitation and rebuilding it into somthing that is yours can be a fun way to gift back.  Especially, if you want to give something that is sentimental.  After all a gift card is just a gift card.  But making it into the couples wedding invitation makes it pretty special to them.

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.
