Autumn's Harvest


Now that I'm getting back into my craft room and getting messy I have been wanting to make a thank you note.  We spent some time on my SIL's family farm this summer.  I wanted to send a Thank You note along with some Apple Butter I canned a few weeks ago.  This is a perfect opportunity to create for the Compendium of Curiosities 3  Challanege  #12, Distress Photo Tinting.  I have missed playing!

 I picked up the Found Relatives- Occasions cards.  Using a #10 Tag is big enough for all my new die cuts and cards.


I used my Distress Markers, spun sugar and warn lipstick for the girl and peeled paint for the boys buttons.  I also inked the baskets and fruit.


The used paint for the bow and tattered curvy banners with the #hashtag stamp set, "#thankyou"


I stamped the background, thankful silhouettes with clear emboss and then inked.  I cut this tattered leaf with packaging plastic then used alcohol inks for colour.


I love the new Sizzix Pumpkin Pieces.  The Distress Glitter is a given in rusty hinge,  I have some Autumn Gatherings cuts done so I added them to the pumpkin with some jute string I curled.


I have been dying to get the new Sizzix Layered Leaf since I love fall!  This leaf is stunning and looks so real!



I layered the leaves under the pumpkin.  I also cut a couple with Klassine.


I tucked my Thank You tag in my maple tree.  It's hard to tell the real leaves from the ones I made.  


Thanks for checking out my Autumn Harvest Thank You.  As always, thank you so much for all you're lovely comments on my last post.

  9. Just gorgeous. I love your photo and I get the sense these two have just jumped into a great pile of leaves on your tag. Delightful mix of paper medium for the leaves, too. Very cool!

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.
