Punch Art Polar and a Stamp or 2

New Stamp Release
 
I got some new Scrappy Moms Stamps in the mail last week and went straight to my paper! This card took no time at all to whip together, maybe 20 minutes.  I ran the silver paper through my snowflake folder (the one that comes with the Tim Holtz Snowman folder) and the snowflake is cut on grunge from the Winter Wonderland die with some crackle white paint.  I made the card to 5x5 cause I was feelin crazy:)
 
For the sentiment I grabbed "Here comes Santa Paws" from the Critter Crazy set stamped and clear embossed.  I popped this little guys head up too and layered his behind in a paper snow mound.
 
*Fun Fact* Did you know is Churchill Manitoba is the Polar Bear Capital of the World and it is the law to leave your doors unlooked.  Just incase someone needs to duck in to get away from a Polar Bear.  Cool EH!

 
I used 1 3/4" round SU punch for the head and body, 3/4" round SU punch for the ears and the middle oval SU punch for the snout.  Just cut on a slight curve for the snout.
 
Don't forget the inside.  This sentiment is from the new Christmas Cheer.

 
For the border, I punched the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo layered with the blue and white card stock, then added some glitter glue.  A little TH Tinsel is added for bling.

 
Don't forget the button nose and ink in some dot eyes.  Tear your paper to make snow mounds and add some more sparkle for the snow.

 


 
"Dear Santa, I can explain..." is my fav from the Christmas Cheer set.  I'm going to have some fun with that!

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
