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!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Mixed Media Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
