Tarnished Trophy, CC3 Challenge #2

I keep seeing the Compendium of Curiosity Challenges everywhere.  I was asked to make a going away card.  So I thought I would play along with CC3 Challenge #2, Distress Glitter!  Because I LOVE MY GLITTER!!!  And I had to make a card anyway;)
  

My wee Tutorial
 
I just got my Tarnished Trophy dies.  I didn't see me using them much and I was wrong.  I spent a little time cutting with my Vagabond.  Love that hummmmmm!
 
 
It's time to crack open all my MINI'S! 
 
 
Applying some ink.  Did you see this posted on Facebook?
 

Yep, opened another pack!
 
 
I love how I store my distress glitter!  All those pretty colours.

The mini inks are great for inking my die cuts.  I am lovin their precision inking.
 

Once the pumice stone is applied add glossy accents.
 

Then cover in distress glitter.
 
 
All my new mini's tucked away.  I'm a couple packs short...for now.
 
 
Time for some spritzing with my lattice stencil.
 
 
Pretty in pumice stone!
 
 
I LOVE the speckled stencil. 
 
 
I have been waiting to use my cargo stencil along with the mini distress tool.  So much easier to ink.
 
 
Did you know you can ink Distress Glitter!  SO AWESOME!
 
 
Using these stencils in different ways is a great way to layer.
 

I need green for my project!
 

The end result.
 
I had all these flowers made and ready to attach.  Way faster.
 
 
I glued the greenery into place.
 
 
I'm so excited to have a banner to stamp on.  REALLY EXCITED!
 
 
I was going to glitter the flower tips...but...nah!
 
 
I stamped the inside with my signature smudge at the top there!
 
 
The small tied bow is attached to the bottom because I love these bows.

  10. Nicole...your card is awesome! Love your use of the glitter but be sure not to post the actual technique on your post! That is what the book is for. :) You did a beautiful job on your background of this card. I love the colors you've used and the sweet tea roses made from Tim's Tattered Pinecone die cut. The banner is very cool at the bottom, too. Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy

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.
