Scrappy Moms Stamps New Release!


Scrappy Moms Stamps is having a double release.  I am using the new Dancing Circles set as the Hooray hasn't reached me yet.  Darn snow.    If you have been checking my blog you know I am participating the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas.  This tag is a mix of my Tag #4 and Tag #6... which I will be posting tomorrow.  Check back tomorrow. 


I picked up tinsel garland and have been cutting and clipping to use it to accent my hat. I hot clued these beads and trimmed felt for the hat.  Adding some glitter glue for snow. The key with heart is attached with a little piece of pipe cleaner, perfect for a scarf.

I tied this key charm with a little silver jingle. 

I used "Thinking of you" Dancing Circle stamp then attached this snowflake brad. 

I used tin foil for the tag then embossed with the snowflake folder.  I painted with acyclic paint scuffing with sand paper to expose the silver tin foil.  Once done I clear embossed to seal the paint and give the tag an enamel look.  Can I just say I adore this technique.

Check these out!



Check it out!!! Scrappy Moms Stamps will be choosing one lucky winner to win these punches if they buy Dancing Circles stamp set. What a perfect fit!

I am sending this pretty little tag to my grandmother.  Yesterday would have been my grandfathers birthday and next week will be one year since his passing.

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…
