Jumbo Tattered Floral Framed

 
HaPpY vAlEnTiNeS dAy!
 
I need some spring! 
 
We have been in a deep freeze for almost 2 weeks.  The CHA Release of the Greenery dies have me excited to create and for the birds to come back!  So... I bought all 3!  I am not a "flower" kind of crafter.  With that said I do love all the tattered dies and the Jumbo Tattered Floral is wonderful.

 
I have one piece of spring paper from my seasonal paper stash left.  Since I love the Frosted film I decided to use it for my first cut!

 
To smooth out the creases and air pockets I used my acrylic block and scraped.  Works like a charm.

 
Just look at how big these are.  I do love projects and the size of this die is perfect for us "project" crafters!
 
 
 I wanted another layer.  With a little peeled paint and old paper stain I made quick work of this patterned paper.  Using some vintage photo ink brings out this flowers inner grunge...or mine!
 
 
The frosted film takes the ink well too.  Look at all these awesome floral bits:)

 
By heat drying the frosted film flowers they want to curl.  Layer together and insert a metal gear and brad!

 
And fast forward to my project.  I have a few of these wood picture frames.  I painted them with chalkboard paint!  This black makes the Jumbo Flower pop!

 
This flower is wonderfully big to pack a punch.  Normally I would add 3 flowers to achieve this full look to anchor the corner of the frame.

 
I also cut the greenery leaves from the big die on grunge paper.  Painted them with peeled paint and some more vintage photo ink for the grunge look.

 
I thought I would try the chalkboard technique on the frame.  So I stamped "enjoy the journey" with embossing ink, some antiquities frosted crystal and chalking.  The result isn't great but the potential is there.  This is a grainy corner of the frame and hey I tried!


These little butterflies add a burst of colour.  I just love this bright sugary look by adding the distress glitter.  A little copper wire and he's flying.
 
 
Using the chalkboard paint allows you to have some fun with the chalk.  In this case the trails left by the butterflies.


I love this photo of my family.  I always ask my kids to grin and bear it for one photo then after that they can be silly!  Now that feels springy!
 
I'll be playing this week over at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge for their stamp challenge!  Stamping on chalkboard paint!

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…

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…
