Twist it Up

Put your hand up if you LOVE the new May Release of Ranger's Twisted Citron...ME, ME, ME.  
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge this week is all about channeling your inner green. 

 I was inspired to create a floral card.  I really should make more cards.
I started with my mesh stencil and twisted citron distress ink.  EEK, I love it.


I so love the Tiny Tattered Floral Thinlits die.  If you don't have this die you NEED it like my cat needs to wake me up at 5:00AM.



I added a cut from the Shape Strip die.  I wasn't to sure about this die but I have to say it's awesome!  If you like to layer like me then this is a perfect addition to your collection.


I love to crackle with clear rock candy distress on acetate and mini apothecary bottles.  This is such a fun technique.  


Can I tell you a secret...I have ALL of the Handwritten Thinlits.  I love these dies and I use them on everything.  Layered over the mesh stencil with twisted citron and it just pops.


I created a simple knot and then fanned out the linen ribbon.  


Pulling all the pieces together the card is full of layers and texture.  The Twisted Citron is the perfect burst of green.




Are you ready to share your Twisted Citron creation with us at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  There's a chance to win a $50 Gift at  Simon Says Stamps too.  Not to mention I get to see it.

Hey, thanks for checking out my Twist it Up card.  My cat Flurry and I are thrilled you stopped by to say hi.

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…

Black and White Christmas

Who says making Christmas cards this season has to take a long time. With these simple techniques you can easily whip up some cards and make it look like you spent a long time on them.  Loving this non traditional look with Black and White.


To create this 5x5 card cut the pattern paper and white Super Stock Cardstockto layer.Ink the pattern paper with Distress Oxide Ink Black soot.Apply an even coat of Glue n' Seal over the Peace die cut and sprinkle with Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy


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.
