Noel Wishes

Is it really the last Tag of 2014!
 
I have had these pieces cut and ready sitting on my desk since the first week of December.  Even the Prancing Deer was cut.  But I decided in the end to use the Lantern die.  I just love it wrapped in Holiday Greens!  I actually finished it last week but with the holidays things get delayed.
 
I used the Alphanumeric Thinlits for the Noel.

 
I love the "wishes".

 
I used the enamel metal technique for the lantern.  Then crackled around the candle light.  I love the wax paper tip for the thinlits and have been using it for weeks.  I left the wax paper on the holly cut for fun.

 
I used a tattered pinecone and red jingles for the top of the lantern.
 
 
A big messy bow in green with a snowflake dangling.
 
 
I don't have the frosted sheets used by Tim :(  So I improvised with the frosted adhesive backed sheet over acetate.  I did emboss but you can see it was well.

 
I skipped the sewing along the tag.  I'm a terrible sewer and so it's best we all don't have to witness that. 
 
 
 
I have been asked to design some samples for CHA for 2015!  I'll give you a hint...I've used Sizzix dies.  I am HOPING it will all make it in time.  Shipping is slower this time of year especially leaving Canada to the US.  I busted my butt to get 5 projects built.  I'll be showing those off during CHA here on my blog.  I soooo wish I could have been at CHA in person.  But then...don't we all!
 
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my take on this December Tag!  I love all the fun techniques this past year!  Thank you for all your support over the year.

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…
