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.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Make Watercoloring Easy with Clearsnap Blends

Ohhhh the Blends are here and I am loving them!  I am super excited to play with Eileen Hull's Clearsnap Colorbox Blends.  This month the Inspiration Team has been sharing their projects and they have been AMAZING!
Follow this easy tutorial for watercoloring with Blends.

I pulled out the watercolor paper grabbed my floral dies heart & soul and pansy.  Grabbed my Blends and Koi stamp.

OH MY GOODNESS... Look at how the Blends work with my Koi stamp.  I randomly applied the Blends and spritz with water then stamp.  I designed this Koi stamp to have a watercolor effect when stamping so perfecto!

The pansy die is cut and ready for Blends.  I popped some colour on my mat, spritz and drag.  I inked the edges a bit then ran my watercolor pen to soften.  The perfect lily pad.  Repeat this step for the heart & soul in hues of blue Blends.

With the Koi dry apply some of the Blends in blue, spritz and use a watercolor pen for this water step.  Randomly apply the shades of blue to cre…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…
