One for the Show

It's Monday and that means a whole week of inspiration for Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  This week we've got your "Ticket" to ride!  You can interpret this anyway you like.
  
I love my Big Ticket die so I went straight for it using it as my foundation to create from.
I love the vibrant paper from the seasonal paper stash and this fun vintage paper. It made me think of those vintage move posters.

Of course I immediately thought of my Bird Crazy birds.  I cut the paste the whiskers from Mini Blueprint #4 and put him in disguise.


Then I stamped another ticket.  In behind it all I ran some film strip and attached with the tiny attacher.


I cut the tuft of feather off his had and added it to the party hat.  I don't know why really...I just stuck it on and kind liked it. 


Layering more tickets I stamped the mini ticket with this fun sentiment from the Way with Words set.  So fun ;)


The paper is so vibrant I decided to simple stamp black on white paper.  It's not something I usually do but I thought it would help my layers pop.


My media room is all decked out with vintage movie canvas's, a vintage popcorn machine and big metal film reels.  So this will be a perfect place to add my little wall hanging.

Don't forget there's a chance to win some spending money!


Thank you for stopping by.  I look forward to seeing what inspires your "ticket" project.

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…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
