Skirtin' Around- Wedding Tag

As with any purchase I make I ask my myself how versatile will this be?  Unless I can think up multiple uses I won't get it.  Certainly the Grass die (Tapered Fringe) fit this for me.  I really like it...so now to challenge myself on how to use it.
 
What to do with this grass die? Make it a WEDDING DRESS!  Shut the Front Door...layers of tissue cut with this die makes for a great dress.  Oh those middle of the night inspirations!

But first, the tag.  I sprayed my tag with Adhesive and glued some heavy duty tin foil.  Then embossed with the new French Script folder.  I painted gold, sanded then heat some UTEE.  Seriously, so pretty!


I cut and layered tissue with Tapered Fringe, starting at the bottom of the Sewing Room Dress Form die.  I also glued the matching tissue to the dress form.  I'm going for a monochromatic look here.


To achieve a "bust" I simply glued a little cotton then folded the tissue over it.  I tied and glued the gold bow, then hot glued this old metal button of my grandmother's.


Layering the 2 small Tattered Floral flowers cut with Oven Liner.  I embossed and inked the larger flowers, layering 3x.  Curl the tips for a fluffy look.


I cut a little banner and stamped "Always & Forever" from TH Simple Sayings, attaching with the Tiny Attacher.  Along the bottom is some Tinsel, heated and inked with more gold paint.

 
This Wedding Tag is a challenge for me to find a new way to use my new Grass die (Tapered Fringe;)  I might attach the tag to a card or simply drape it over my favourite bottle of
French Wine as a wedding gift:o)
 
I would like to know your thoughts on what you would use the Grass die for?

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.
