Hanging Tags

I've been busy like most of you!  Creating like mad including these wine tags.  I was asked to make 20 of them.  I do this every year and it's always fun coming up with new designs.  This year I used my new Vintage Cabinet die!  I created 4 different designs... mostly for me!  Doing 20 of the same thing can be boring.
 
I distressed all the edges and used brushed pewter distress paint to the edges.  I added the jumbo tattered pinecone and holiday greens to this one. 
 

Each tag has a another vintage cabinet cut I stamped attached.  This is where the gift cards will attach.


The new festive gent all distress glittered in black soot.  Each vintage cabinet card has an oval peek cut which will show off the gift cards.


Loving my Mini Handwritten Holidays stamps for smaller projects.  Stamped on the Thinlits Labels is a perfect fit.  The retro presents are the perfect size!


This tag gets the sleigh ride cut layered with merriment paper and the holy leaves from the holiday lamppost.


Each tag is tied off with heavy twine to hang around the bottles.


These make a great gift!


Bonus Project

I needed to make 30 Christmas Cards and fast.  I went with an easy design and whipped of 30 in less than 2 hours. 


I used festive berries distress spray stain and holiday knit stencil to create the background for the antlers.


Sometimes you need quick cards so simply layering some paper and adding a stamps is the best way to get the job done!


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope this gives you some ideas for a quick card or gift card holder!

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…
