12 Days of Christmas- Day 12

WOOHOO...it's Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas!  It's also Christmas Eve!  Lets get to the last candy drawer box die ornament... or is it the last?


Sometimes even I can inspire me with this Holiday Trophy Antlers ornament... inspired by my own creation HERE.


The bleached wreath is awesome around the trophy antler deer.


It's hard not to ink him.


I added to the bottom this "Believe Script" metal charm and these awesome metal pine cone charms.


Mounted on the mini sheild, inked with ground espresso distress spray stain and added Iridescent Shimmer.  Perfect to catch the lights from the tree.


I believe...



SURPRISE... it's a bakers dozen and we have a bonus ornament!



Well, I may have had one more idea for an ornament.  So, why not make it.


I had plans to ink the letterpress but after I sanded them... why!  I wanted to see the wood grain, distressed paint finish and Iridescent Shimmer layered right over top.


There are some fallen pine cone charms in the corners.  They match the hues perfectly.


The mirrored star is inked with slate alcohol ink and tucked away in the corner.


I love this little glimpse of Santa from the Merriment paper pack.  All the paper used for the background is used from my scrap bin.  


Well, I do hope you enjoyed my 12 Days of Christmas ornament collection.  I wanted to share my love of my Sizzix dies (by sticking with the mini ones) my Ranger goodies and experimenting with all these fun Custom Embossing Powders.  Not to mention my idea of a festive ornament (s) for the tree.


Thanks for joining me.  I hope it put you in the festive mood. 

12 Days of Christmas

  7. Hi, Nicole and Happy New Year! I came to tell you how happy I was to see your blog listed on Tim's Festive Holiday Links and it didn't surprise me a bit! Those cards were fantastic! Big Congratulations!

    Now about these ornaments....You know I have to write you a novel, so I won't comment on each post individually. First let me say that you have GREATLY inspired me with these, and this will be the first year that I've felt inclined to make Christmas ornaments after Christmas...usually I start my Christmas preparations by Dec. 12, IF i'm lucky! Secondly, it is on my bucket list to come visit you in your awesome craft room and peek over your shoulder as you create your magical makes! Your creative mind just amazes me! Lastly, I loved each of the 13 ornaments, and am sorry I am missing your posts. I think I am following on google +, and I just don't know how that works! I'm going to see if there is a better way that works for me. I have to say Day 6 and Day 8 are my two favorites. Day 6 for the glitz and Day 9 for the peaceful scene. Oh, and then there's Day 10 with the gorgeous trees! Oh my! They are all fabulous and I'm sure your family enjoyed seeing them on your beautiful tree!

    I loved seeing that lantern on Day 2, because I never can think of a use for mine. I did use it once for a tutorial, and I haven't been able to find it since! I have all my M/S on my tool chest, but somehow this one must have fallen off and the cat's are probably using it for a hockey puck!

    Thank you for all your inspiration, Nicole, and Happy New Year to you and your family!

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.
