Toxic Brew- Make it 3D

There's still time to enter the Make it 3D Challenge for Eileen Hull.  The DT has been sharing their inspiration all month!  Did you know Eileen has a Sizzix die that will take your dies and "Make it 3D".  This can elevate your favorite dies by creating dimension!  Just think of your stash and what you can accomplish!

I was recently traveling down south and stopped in at The Island's Creative Escape in Los Gatos, California.  This is where I picked up the Tea Time die.  I knew I was going to make it 3D.  


I knew I needed my skeletons.  Time to break some bones.


I got these Wendy Vecchi Embossing Powders when I was on the Frilly and Funkie DT.  I love the enamel look the fern green and orange blossom.  I love, love, love this little tab!


The mini ticket is the perfect sign.  It's what Starbucks would look like in Halloween Towne.


How you doin'?  


I love bending and snapping these guys.  They become humanized.


I like to try and think outside of the box when I create.  I like to try and get you thinking beyond the norm when you look at your dies.  


I hope this gets you thinking...

Be sure to get your project in for a chance to win your own Make it 3D die!  


Thanks for stopping by!

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…

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.
