Holidays are looking Up

My daughter loves Up and she showed a cute Up inspired photo and asked if I could make one.  I said I could try and make it work with my circle punch.  A bit of a different take on this Holiday card.  
Check out how I made my Up inspired card.


I just got the Snowglobe and it's the perfect mini Up House.  I used my small 3/4" Stampin Up punch for the mini balloon cut with Tiding paper.  The Tree Lined Thinlit is cut with watercolor paper inked.


With the left over ink I inked my crinkle ribbon.  I cut the snowglobe houses a couple of times since I wanted to layer for a full big house.


Now that the pieces are ready I inked them with distress markers and a watercolor brush.  Then they took a dip in the clear rock candy distress glitter for an icy feel.  I cut the largest Sized Circle on chipboard to glue my teeny circles for the balloon.  I popped up a few balloons with 3D Foam Squares


A little twine attached and away we go!


Floating over the tree line.


I also added some clear rock candy distress glitter to the trees.


The snowglobe house has been popped up too along with a few glittery clouds.


I left the tree lined trees slightly curled so the house looks like it's floating from behind.


The balloons are rising about this 6x6 card.


Up with a Holiday Twist


It's looking like Christmas in my craft room these days.  I hope you're finding holiday inspiration in unlikely places too.  My daughter loves the card!

  5. Wow! What an absolutely inventive idea for a card! I've never seen this theme idea before, but I love it and think it's a brilliant way to use circle punches! You were definitely "UP" for your daughter's challenge and did it justice. I also love the dimension you gave to your floating houses. This was a treat to see and I'm so glad you shared such a memorable piece of art with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  6. Looks like your daughter has the creative gene with her as well. Very creative and unique design and use of the dies. I'll have to see this movie Up. Seems whimsical and fun. Genius idea to curl the trees, it really does look like the house if floating behind the tree line. Awesome sauce and fantabulous idea and execution.

    Thanks for joining us at Anything But Cute for our "Rustic Glam" challenge. Hugz. ~Niki DT

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…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
