Jingle all the Way

November has been a very bust month for crafting.  Not that I can show off much yet.  I have left my 12 Tags November to the last moment so I could meet all (some) of my (CHA) deadlines. I love this foiled look.  It has such a vintage feel.  I wish I could have found some silver foil but gold is what I could find...so make it work!  I was tempted to create a pumpkin Autumn tag since I love all things Autumn.  But, I have been lured by the festive season.
Flipping through my many blueprint stamps I settled on the jingle bell.  The lantern almost won!

Instead of the cork I layered some frosted film and mirrored sheet cutting out Bells with the Alphanumeric thinlit.  Adding the "jingle" over top with distressed core paper.

I stamped wee snowflakes from the new Christmas Magic set.  Then I sprayed tumbled glass and twisted citron.  

Using a small piece of tinsel twine I tied off these Victorian Snowflakesfrom Emerald Creek Craft Supply to the wee arrow.  

All the embossing and …

Ranger- Festive Log House

I have one last Ranger Tutorial for you on Ranger's Blog.   Stop by the blog to see how I created my Festive "Log" House.  You'll get a step by step on how to build your own log house for the Christmas Season.


This is my last post for Ranger this year.  However, I will be joining them again next year.  I am thrilled to be asked back and I can't wait to create again for them.
Stop by Ranger's blog and make sure to Pin my tutorial so you won't loose it.

Holiday Trophy Antlers

You know how hard those brush bottle trees are to find... Lately I have been hoarding mine.  I use them a lot and it seems they are harder to get a hold of.  Especially the bleached ones! I really love having lots of these trees on hand.  Like last year when I made the TREE LOTI went through a lot of trees.  So keeping a full basket can be challenging.  Look how beautiful these are.
I picked up 24 wreaths all in dark green.  When I posted the above photo on Facebook my super crafty buddy Lisa mentioned you can bleach these.  Once I picked my jaw up off the ground I tried it and in less than 5 minutes these were bleached!

So I had this idea...

I wanted to show off my newly bleached wreaths.

Can you believe these were DARK GREEN!

I love this Festive Stencil using Ranger's Texture Paste.  I popped the mini shield and trophy antlers forward with a small wood block.


I wish you could see the glittery letterpress J.O.Y.

Each Trophy is mounted on the mini burlap panels.

I love these meta…

Soft Fallen Snow- Ornament Experiment

I have a new addiction and it's called Soft Fallen Snow.  I just got a small sample jar through Emerald Creek Craft Supplies.  I wanted to do some experimenting and see how this embossing powder is set apart from other's I have used.  I used it in a couple of ways to create some ornaments. I am no expert and love all my powders for different reasons.  Here's how the powders I use compared for me.
Wendy Vecchi- Enamel finish coating everything, slight gloss.Iced Enamel Relique Powders- Thick Enamel that creates a blotchy effect, slight gloss.Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder- A grainy effect great for a distressed look, matte finish.Stampin Up- A fine effect, detailed and glossyEmerald Creek Craft Supplies Soft Fallen Snow Powder- A matte finish, all covering white powder with hints of glitter.  Goes slightly puffy when gently heated creating a textured snowy effect.
I had an idea... follow my tutorial.

Gather up a jar, tinsel twine, mini woodland tree and the mini trophy.…
