Tag Time!
I really wanted to play with all my Spring Dies.  Lot's of pictures for you.
 
Lets scroll...
 
I started with some pattern paper, worn lipstick and antique linen stain.  Then cut my jumbo tattered flower.
Sand your distress paper before you cut it for the leaves.  Makes it easier.
 
Pumice stone and peeled paint stain for the #10 Tag
 
Mist the tag with water.
 
Then heat dry.
Love this Harlequin stencil!  I used peacock feathers distress ink.
Isn't that pretty!
 
 
I was going to stop there.  But then I saw picked raspberry!
And mustard seed with salty ocean!  I love all these brights.
 
Mist with water to create a reaction with the inks.
This is the effect after heating.  STUNNING!
 
Time for some chalking using the #5 tag die.
The Antiquities Frosted Crystal is a must for this technique. 
 
 
On the petal tips I smeared some glossy accents with my finger.
Then sprinkle distress glitter clear rock candy.
 
I knew I would really like Green Gardens die.  I didn't know I would LOVE it!
 
I inked with peeled paint and pine needles paints then inked with vintage photo and crushed olive.
I attached the "leaves" from tattered floral with my tiny attacher.
 
Just look at these lovely spring greenery cuts!  What a fantastic die.  Assemble at will.
I used hot glue to attach everything.  I like my hot glue.
The metal flower center looks amazing on this big flower.
 
Layering the spring greenery cuts makes the tag full!
 
 
I love how the chalk art tag pops with all this colour!
 
Together with the grunge board greens and the spring greenery it all looks amazing.
 
 
It all pulls together nicely and these dies all play together well!  You can't have just one die!
 
Thanks for looking.  Especially with my photo teaser yesterday on Facebook!
I really appreciate all those who are pulling for me to win the

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…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

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…
