12 Tags March

It's tag time and this months tag is done.  Being so close to Easter I have bunnies on the mind so I decided to go the large Easter Elements die.
Don't forget these tags are a "Remix" so creating is twice the fun.  Click HERE for Tim's March Tag.

I love all the layers of distress crayons, gesso, spray stains and inks I got to use.  There's a Fearless metal charm at the bottom with picket fence distress crayon.


I layered the birch die for something a little more organic, tying in with the corrugated cardboard.


My "spritzing" could use some work.  But just go with it and let it evolve.


I added a metal Checkered Brad from Emerald Creeks Craft Supplies to the linen ribbon for a topper then coated some picket fence distress crayon.  I like the look.  It's fun to try new.


I used a small tiny tattered floral for the wee bow tie.  Then tucked the metal White Rabbit Charm to the side.  


You can see the foil shimmering on the corrugated tag.


It's always so fun to create these tags.  I love revisiting the techniques and combining my Sizzix dies and Ranger products.

Here's where you can find me playing

  6. Nicole, I am drooling over those metal pieces! Love your take on Tim's tag, which I found to be the most challenging yet! I guess that's why they call it a challenge! Your bright colors are there and they are beautiful paired with the birch die and the bunny! Your spritzing is like mine, so hard to get control over that spray bottle! tee hee!

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…

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.
