12 Tags of Christmas; #12


It's the final tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas.  It was really inspiring to make these tags and honestly when I started I had no idea I would do all 12...until I got to tag 4.  I really love as a crafter to layer with paper and goodies.  So this tag was perfect for me.

Making these paper flowers was so fun as I have never made them before.  My GF and I hit the $1 Store for TISSUE to re-create this tag.  I stamped a music note stamp to silver tissue for this tag then added an antique brad.  I attached tinsel and trimmed it then used my MS Holly punch on MS glitter paper for the layered border.

Not a big fan of the cherub that was used so I was on the hunt ($1 store) for somthis that would fit.  For $1 I picked up 2 of these prancing deer.  Now they were cold but a little spray adhesive and silver glitter and now I have a pretty deer.  Some of the gold shows through and adds a pretty look to the deer.


"ALL IS CALM" I printed on my computer and cut out then popped up.  I stamped the tag then used some white tissue, stamped this music stamp on it with Archival black then used modge posge to glue it on the tag.  The script I stampd on the tag shows through.

I didn't have the die for the layer behing the deer.  So using the lid off my Scrabble box we hand cut the image.  I then painted some acrylic blueish paint I had left over from my kids Nutcracker project. 

The light catches the glittler from the WISH, deer and ribbon I used.  I once again used my $1 Store silver jingle earrings and attached it at the bottom of the tag.  Couldn't miss adding that final jingle.







Be sure to pop in Friday for a Christmas Hop I am in.  There, I will have a couple more variations of tags I made and gave away.

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 …
