200 Thank You Cards

So this is what 200 cards look like!
 
Remember that day on Facebook...OK maybe not.
 
So, there was this day I posted a photo of 400 pieces of ribbons and everyone that was there...(maybe 3 people) was "like...OMG" and "YOUR F'N CRAZY" and "WTH is wrong with you".  Ya, something to that effect.  Well, now I can show you what I was making. 
 
Here you have it...200 cards!  OR...
 100 per bin
200 cards scored 
400 pieces of ribbon
400x stamping
600 cut pieces of paper
8 rolls of ATG Tape
AND...
1400 letters and numbers cut and glued, one by one!
 
 You may be telling yourself after reading those STATS, "She's Crazy"! You'd be right!
 
 
  Here are the 400 pieces of Stampin Up Ribbon, Basic Grey Stitch and Misty Blue Scallop.  Or something to that effect?
 
 
I layered the ribbon then taped them on for 5 hours straight.  I had no feeling left in my fingers.
 
 
Here, I bagged each letter and number into it's own bags.  That's 7 bags with 200 cuts in each. 
 
 
Scrappy Moms Stamps just came out with this Many Thanks stamp just in time!  And Many Thanks to SMS for having this AWESOME stamp set!  It was perfect timing:)
 
 
For the bottom portion of the inside of the card I coloured by hand this big stamp from Stampers Anonymous, Booksellers and Publishers.
 
 
Aren't they fabulous together.  I had to hand colour the bottoms stamp since I didn't need the whole thing.  I once had a shiny new Black SU marker:(


All mounted and ready for the letters and numbers!
 
 
My finished card, simply made with a great impact I thought.
 
My husband's company (he works for) is celebrating 10 Years Today!  I made these for the the staff in the Company colours.  They distribute Book and Magazines so you can see how using the Booksellers stamp and this Newsprint SU paper is so fitting.  I kept the card design simple and to the point otherwise I'd still be making them;)
 
So now do you remember that day on Facebook?
 
Oh and just so you know I've added a "PIN IT" button at the top of the post to make it easier for you to "PIN NOW, CRAFT LATER"

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…

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.
