Anything Goes- You've Got Mail

Anyone ready for a new challenge with Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge?  Oh wait...did I forget to mention I'm the newest Designer for Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  It's true and I'm thrilled to be on such a creative team...and a little stunned. 

My first challenge with Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge is Anything Goes!  I decided to use the Correspondence paper pack as my foundation of inspiration.  I recently shared a peak at this project but I wanted to share the FULL project!  

One of my favorite releases this year is the Envelope Die!  I love this envelope and all it's potential.  


Who loves the new Tiny Tattered Florals...this crafter sure does.


I just love the Photobooth vintage photo's.  They are the perfect layer to any project.


I added the Handwritten Cherish from the Love Thinlits.  I'm still trying to find the dot for the letter "i". 


I trimmed up the mixed media honeycomb and inked it with some abandon coral, cracked pistachio and mustard seed.


I created wee cards and stamped with the Correspondence stamp.  Then I added an Idea-Ology Pen Nib.


Ohhh the Airmail Paper String...enough said.


I wrapped a small $1 Store canvas with the Correspondence Designer Tape pulling it all together. 


Be sure to share what inspires your Anything Goes with us at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  One random winner will be chosen for a $50 shopping Spree with Simon Says Stamps.  


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to take a peek.  I'm really excited to share my Monday's with you.  That, and I have nothing much else to do today.  Oh wait...nope I'm working so I can buy more crafty things so you'll keep coming back.

  7. This would be such a wonderful project idea to display real family photos--your dimension/detail bring so much life to otherwise flat media. The effect is simple and surprising. Thank you for this inspiration!

  11. Welcome Nicole!! Love this piece ... especially those tiny cards ... amazing. The airmail paper string just "ties" it all together. Fabulous.

  12. SO glad you're on the team, Nicole! I've been a long-time fan of your fabulous eclectic and creative vibe and SSS couldn't have picked a more perfect designer to join us. I really like what you did with this piece and how you mixed those creamy peachy-pinks with the pops of red, blue and white. It looks fantastic and I can't wait to see what you come up with from week to week!

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…

Black and White Christmas

Who says making Christmas cards this season has to take a long time. With these simple techniques you can easily whip up some cards and make it look like you spent a long time on them.  Loving this non traditional look with Black and White.


To create this 5x5 card cut the pattern paper and white Super Stock Cardstockto layer.Ink the pattern paper with Distress Oxide Ink Black soot.Apply an even coat of Glue n' Seal over the Peace die cut and sprinkle with Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy


Ink the edges of the Sizzix Vintage Tidings with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  Add a touch of shimmer to these Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens cuts.  Apply Glue n' Seal with a paint brush to the tips of each greenery and coat with a dusting of Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy.  Start to build and layer your cuts and embellishments.
