A Place for Christmas

I'm having a lot of family this year for Christmas dinner. What a pretty way to find where your seat is!  I just bought the new Rustic Lantern die for this project.  You'll be seeing more goodies for sure using this awesome die.
 
I cut the lantern with chipboard then inked with gathered twigs distress paint. 
 
The greenery is from the pine cone die.  Then I hot glued some wee berries and a real pine cone.  The name tag is cut from the ribbon flags strip die attached with twine.  Anyone have nice printing?
I embossed with vintage photo distress embossing powder.  It's almost like sandpaper!  The garland is the holly, beaded and snowflake die with festive berries distress glitter bows. I used vellum for the "glass" part of the die inked with mustard seed.
The back is inked again with gathered twigs distress paint and black soot ink for the edges.  We then cut some pattern paper for the inside of the die.
Adding a little battery tea light in the lantern props them apart allowing the place setting to stand.
When it's on the candle flickers.  Don't use a real candle!
My SIL and I set out to make 20 sets of these adorable place settings for the Christmas table.  And 20 settings means double everything for cutting! 

If you're wondering how to use this die...here's a great idea.  I love it!  Here's a peak at what I'm building to go with go with these.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
