Creativation- Under the Sea

I have been busy the last few weeks on a few Creativation projects.  Sadly this year I am not attending but a couple things I made will be there on display.  I got to play with some new embossing powders from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and these pretty stones from the new Quarry collection.  I went for the obvious...shaker card.

Creativation is about to begin so here's a little look at one of my projects.


I had this idea for a porthole type of window filled with the Quarry Mixed Media Gemstones (releasing Jan 21,2017) stones... almost like sea glass.


There are just a few pretty stones in this collection ;)


I cut the porthole using the Pocket Watch big die and the movers and shapers circle die.  


The Sand and Sea Horse is layered with twisted citron distress spray, Salted Navy and Fractured Ice EP.


The SEA is cut with the Alphanumeric die.  Then a little hardware never hurts with this metal anchor.


The background is Nuance Powder Dyes and the Splatter Stencil.


For a little under the sea greenery I made some cuts with the Garden Greens and Holiday Greens.


If you are at Creativation this weekend stop by Emerald Creek Craft's booth to see the new releases and projects created by there talented Design Team.  Some will even be there teaching some make n takes!

Stay Tuned for more Creativation projects I will be blogging over the coming days.

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.
