All Boxed- 12 Tags

Have you been wondering if I would get my tag done for this month?  I know I was.  With the Sizzix trip, my daughter's graduation this week, family in town and my son breaking his Clavicle bone on Sunday. I have just barely made this in time.
 
Now that's close and that's no tag!  I had the tag built and all I had to do was assemble it when I got the call my son was heading to the hospital in an ambulance.  He's fine but Mommy mode kicked in and I've been keeping a close eye on him all week.  I had this idea to use my new Artist Block die by Eileen Hull...just this morning. 
 
I used the same concept but added them to the block!
 

I used a ton of my Sizzix dies and I adore my mini armor and mini antlers! 
 
 
I went through all my fun stash.
 

I wasn't going to get the shadow press but who's kidding who.  I cut my finished tag for these so at least I used it.

 
I cut watercolor paper and stamped the High Society Blueprint set then used that as a back ground for my block.  I used distress inks and stain for coloring with my watercolor pen.
 

The honeycomb frameworks adds texture. 
 

If you look you can see I used the woodgrain stencil on the armor.  It turned out awesome.
 

I added a purple flower cut from the Tattered Pinecone die.  Love these flowers!
 

I used 1 piece of 8x8 paper stash for the whole thing!
 

I little fun with my mini ribbon and some Idea-Ology.
 

I had so much fun making my May "Tag" or Artist Block.  It's my first Block I've made and part of the dies that arrived from Sizzix!
 
 
I wanted to use some of my favorite things.  And I didn't have enough room to even fit it all.  I love this block and I can't wait for more to arrive.

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…

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…
