Baby's Mobile

Finally posting the last of my Baby Shower gifts I made last week, a Nursery Mobile.  Lots of pictures in this post for you so I'll do less blabbering.
 

For the Animals I used Create a Critter cut at 3 1/2".  Then use the "Flip" button and cut again.  Mobiles do twist.

This little Monkey is the smallest cut at the 3 1/2".

I cut C for Charlotte using Sophisticated at 5 1/2" then added some Stickles in the accent.

Mooooo....

LOOOVE the Hippo!  I missed a close up of the Owl but you can see him too as you look at the mobile.  Poor Owl...

I even decorated the bottom of the lid.

I scallop cut the top with matching paper and added this pretty ribbon to trim it out.  The lid is a coffee tin lid.  It's easy to pop the holes in the lid for the ribbon.  The ribbon is from the Michaels $1 bin.

Cut the ribbon at the length you want and knot it on the top. 

I used the red sticky tape for the ribbon in between the animal layers.  Then I popped them with dimensionals. 

My little mass of critters!

Here is the card I posted to match.  See now the ribbon makes sense!  Click HERE to see the card with more photo's...or scroll down.

And the Nursery Wall Decor Project.  All are in matching paper.  Click HERE to see more photo's.

I did make one more card for my SIL for her baby shower gift.  I will post that shortly.  Then we can move on from babies to my daughters Sweet 16 projects I have been working on! 

Hope you enjoyed the mobile and I always love the comments!

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…

Black and White Christmas

Who says making Christmas cards this season has to take a long time. With these simple techniques you can easily whip up some cards and make it look like you spent a long time on them.  Loving this non traditional look with Black and White.


To create this 5x5 card cut the pattern paper and white Super Stock Cardstockto layer.Ink the pattern paper with Distress Oxide Ink Black soot.Apply an even coat of Glue n' Seal over the Peace die cut and sprinkle with Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy


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.


Grouping up the glittery Mini Holiday Greens in black and white topped with a Sizzix Fold Up Bows.The edges of Peace are inked up so it pops from …
