Is anyone there?
 
I have been so busy these days with family, teaching and crafting!  I am committing myself to playing EVERY month with Tim's Tags!  I'm really squeaking this one in!  I have a photo tutorial on this tag, how I got there "WITHOUT" all the goodies Tim used.
 
I am just starting to collect some stains so I just picked up Barn Door.  I cheated with  Fire Brick Ink and water. 
 
 
I loaded the tag with Barn Door Stain.  I'm staining so fast the photo blurred.

 
I stamped the ink pad on my mat.  Clever...

 
Then spritz the water and drag the tag through.  Go through the same spritzing of the tag and dry.

 
See it worked.  I drag my scissors and inked black.
 
 
The stamp Tim used isn't available for me.  So I used what I have, Travel Blueprint! 

 
After stamping the water paper I used my craft punch to notch out the postage edge.  Oh that cutting sucks!

 
I cut the airplane out...cause I'm crafty like that.

 
I don't have the markers and have no plan of getting them.  Instead I use my inks and water blender pens.  I works!

 
I used my new Travel embossing folder which goes with my plane.

 
I have all these Fragment pieces so I grabbed a circle piece.  Then I followed the what Tim did!
 
 
Sticking the Chitchat stickers down and glue.

 
I don't have the labels so I used the ticket stamp I have.  Along with the same pointy finger!

 
Look, I have washi!  I kinda love this new tip!  I inked the washi with Black Soot.

 
All Done!

 
Scrappy Moms Stamps just sent me some new Twine with gold and silver in it.  YUM!

 
I skipped the hearts along the top.  Not a big fan of that.

 
What a fun Tag this was! 

 
BRING ON MARCH TIM!

    So cool that you had that embossing folder that went so well with your theme.
    I agree with you on the hearts not going with your 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…

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…

Ink the edges of the Sizzix Vintage Tidings with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  Add a touch of shimmer to these Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens cuts.  Apply Glue n' Seal with a paint brush to the tips of each greenery and coat with a dusting of Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy.  Start to build and layer your cuts and embellishments.
