Christmas Tag


Noooo...it's not 12 Tags of Christmas, #3 Tag:(

However, I am having so much fun following and creating the tags I thought I would wing it.  And give you at least a tag to check out while I'm away.  I wanted to play with some of the new stuff I've been learning.  So I decided to make my Mom a Christmas Tag to go on the little bag I made for her.  I'll show you those later.

It's kind of a few things I've seen thrown together onto a tag.  I embossed the tree with some yummy green embossing powder.  Then sis a 2nd tree in detail silver, embossing it in 3 layers of silver to give it a THICK snowy look.  I don't have the snow product so the next best thing is to embossing.  Then I trimmed the snowy bows.


I wrapped the trunk with hemp twine then added this red jingle.  I punched my snowflake with green card stock for a leafy effect and added some wee red buttons as berries.  For something a little different. 

I used the Merry Christmas ticket inked with red and green. 

Lookie how pretty this tree turned out.

I'm hoping on Monday I can play some catch up and work on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

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…
