Wish

 I have been patiently waiting for the Layered Snowflake to arrive so I could make this months tag. I felt like it was taking forever! I knew I wasn't going to use my layered leaf.  Thanksgiving is over...Halloween is over and there is snow on the ground! That calls for a snowflake!
 
I love this big textured snowflake for November's tag.  I love the torn cardboard!  It feels grungy!
 
 
I did all the inking and embossing for the layered snowflake.  I have everything except the transfer foil *sad face* so I used brushed pewter distress paint dabbing through the speckled stencil. 

 
I cut this round thinlit label the used my Alphanumeric I just got to say WISH.  Since it wouldn't fit across the tag I had fun and placed the letters like you see.  I actually prefer it like this.
 
*the letters became magnetized and were dancing around my platform...weird*

 
Along the bottom of my tag I cut and distress glittered clear rock candy the snow flurries cut.  Then attached with some tinsel twine.  I attached a snowflake charm with a little added picket fence distress paint.

 
 I love all the blues and texture.

 
I attached a Christmas Word Band along the top with my tiny attacher and tinsel twine. 

 
There, short and sweet...like me. 
 
Thanks for checking out my 12 Tags of 2014 November Tag.
 
Be sure to play along.  You don't have to have all the same goodies...you just have to be inspired.

  5. Well, you sure were inspired! This is gorgeous, Nicole! A great spin on Tim's tag! this is just perfect, and I love all the snowy details! Love! Great idea to use the stencil with brushed pewter. Sure beats spilling the entire bottle all over your work table like I did! I had silver hands for a week!

    Now, I've got to get that snowflurries die! I hope you'll visit again, and see what I just finished linking to Tim's challenge--another flake!

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…

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…
