12 Days of Christmas- Day 12

WOOHOO...it's Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas!  It's also Christmas Eve!  Lets get to the last candy drawer box die ornament... or is it the last?


Sometimes even I can inspire me with this Holiday Trophy Antlers ornament... inspired by my own creation HERE.


The bleached wreath is awesome around the trophy antler deer.


It's hard not to ink him.


I added to the bottom this "Believe Script" metal charm and these awesome metal pine cone charms.


Mounted on the mini sheild, inked with ground espresso distress spray stain and added Iridescent Shimmer.  Perfect to catch the lights from the tree.


I believe...



SURPRISE... it's a bakers dozen and we have a bonus ornament!



Well, I may have had one more idea for an ornament.  So, why not make it.


I had plans to ink the letterpress but after I sanded them... why!  I wanted to see the wood grain, distressed paint finish and Iridescent Shimmer layered right over top.


There are some fallen pine cone charms in the corners.  They match the hues perfectly.


The mirrored star is inked with slate alcohol ink and tucked away in the corner.


I love this little glimpse of Santa from the Merriment paper pack.  All the paper used for the background is used from my scrap bin.  


Well, I do hope you enjoyed my 12 Days of Christmas ornament collection.  I wanted to share my love of my Sizzix dies (by sticking with the mini ones) my Ranger goodies and experimenting with all these fun Custom Embossing Powders.  Not to mention my idea of a festive ornament (s) for the tree.


Thanks for joining me.  I hope it put you in the festive mood. 

12 Days of Christmas

PIN it so you won't forget about it.





Have a Wonderful Holiday!

  7. Hi, Nicole and Happy New Year! I came to tell you how happy I was to see your blog listed on Tim's Festive Holiday Links and it didn't surprise me a bit! Those cards were fantastic! Big Congratulations!

    Now about these ornaments....You know I have to write you a novel, so I won't comment on each post individually. First let me say that you have GREATLY inspired me with these, and this will be the first year that I've felt inclined to make Christmas ornaments after Christmas...usually I start my Christmas preparations by Dec. 12, IF i'm lucky! Secondly, it is on my bucket list to come visit you in your awesome craft room and peek over your shoulder as you create your magical makes! Your creative mind just amazes me! Lastly, I loved each of the 13 ornaments, and am sorry I am missing your posts. I think I am following on google +, and I just don't know how that works! I'm going to see if there is a better way that works for me. I have to say Day 6 and Day 8 are my two favorites. Day 6 for the glitz and Day 9 for the peaceful scene. Oh, and then there's Day 10 with the gorgeous trees! Oh my! They are all fabulous and I'm sure your family enjoyed seeing them on your beautiful tree!

    I loved seeing that lantern on Day 2, because I never can think of a use for mine. I did use it once for a tutorial, and I haven't been able to find it since! I have all my M/S on my tool chest, but somehow this one must have fallen off and the cat's are probably using it for a hockey puck!

    Thank you for all your inspiration, Nicole, and Happy New Year to you and your family!

  8. Oh glorious! Love the deer festooned with the garland, and the sparkly 25 - I can see I've been missing real treats here... will have to do some catching up over the next few days, but I'm here this time to say thanks so much for joining us on A Vintage Journey.

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…
