12 Tags of Christmas; #10


Tag 10 was a lot of fun!  Although I was a little impatient and took pictures before my ornaments could dry!  I really like this tag...so much I made 2!  But if you want to see my second tag you'll have to check back on December 16-18 for Hop I am in.  It should be AMAZING!


Had to sneak my Jingle in!  If you have been following my version of the 12 Tags of Christmas then you know each tag has at least 1 jingle on it!  I cut a stem from my mini $1 store tree then layered with tinsel, ribbon and the red jingle.  All glued with hot glue.

For my version of BELIEVE I stamped and punched cork, then distressed with a little vintage photo.  I added some gold glitter glue to make it look like icicles.  My banner is hand cut TH music paper, then to get that tattered edges I punched the tips with my Martha Stewart drippy goo punch.  I could have borrowed the banner from my GF but it's the weekend...family time!

For the facets I did see the ones Tim uses.  However I picked up the pack of 48 of thin facets.  I figured I could get a lot more use out of 48 than 12 of them. 


Here's a sneak peak of my Tag 10 variation.  Check back Friday Dec 16th for the whole tag.



 

I really love this tag. Making these little ornaments was so much fun although a little finicky! If you come back on Dec 16th for the Hop I'm in you'll see how I made a tag super personal. I can see you wanting to make some too!

  3. Love your tag! I made some of the ornaments but didn't have the tape so I used Be Creative tape and foil...

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 …

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…

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 …
