Geared Up for May's Remix

I barricaded myself in my room for an hour so I could whip off May's Remix.  Hands up if you're having fun creating (and looking at)  these Remix Tags.  Me...ME...!

I went for a masculine Geared Up Remix Tag.  Father's Day is just around the corner and lets face it.  I love to create masculine anything.  


I used the Time Traveler set for my tag.  Layering with one of the Documented stamps.


Oh which stencil to choose?  I was tempted to use lots.  But I ended up with the Gears because I love it!  I cut the Tiny Tattered Florals and inked the tag after the texture paste dried.


I love how the colours turned out.  I used the leftover stain for my ribbon.  Here come the gears!


The resist from the washi is perfect.  I wasn't sure about the keys but I like.


A sticky tab thingy and this lovely sentiment Rub On. I added a scrap of stained ribbon with my tiny attacher.


I used the Tinest of Florals on the Time Travelers Lapel.  There is a teeny leaf too.  Look hard.  It's true... only one little Sizzix die used.  


The texture paste gears all inked are so yummy!  Adding the metal gears is perfectly masculine.


I added this Time Piece Pocket Watch.  Along with another tab thingy and sentiment Rub On.  I added a dollop of glossy accents.


Stamping, inks, texture paste, stenciling and hardware...


Loving the gears and Time Traveler.

  9. Oh, yeah, Nicole, you do DO masculine so well, and this is no exception! I love the use of the keys tissue tape--that being the hardest choice for this month's tag in my opinion. It looks just perfect with the guy stamp and as always, love your gears! And the one wee flower at the lapel--genius!

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…

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…

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…
