12 Days of Christmas- Day 1

It's Day 1 of my 12 Days of Christmas.  I always enjoy when crafters share their inspiration like this!  I decided it was my turn.  What a blast I had creating.

The Box Candy Drawer is one of my favorite box die.  I am so excited... this is the die that got me hooked on Eileen Hull's fun Box dies!  I wanted to use this fun die to create a series of ornaments. 
 
I hope you enjoy my version of the 12 days of Christmas.


I used the drawer portion of the candy drawer box creating the perfect ornament box.


A festive scene with sizzix mini skates.


I love this trio of tattered pinecones and greens with soft fallen snow embossing powder.  Snow kissed pinecones!


These adorable mini skates are covered with more soft fallen show embossing powder for added texture.  A couple of holly leaves from festive greenery die and a mini victorian snowflake charm.


The  holiday script merry is tucked in the back with a coat of glossy accents.


Wrapped in tinsel twine and a little green jingle.  


Want to see more?  Check back everyday for more festive inspiration.

See you tomorrow!

PIN it so you won't forget about it.

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.
