Riveting Parts

It's time for my favourite tag of the year...OCTOBER!  To get the low down on Tim's October Remix pop over tho his blog for the how too.  I followed all the same fun techniques.  

I decided to go with the Pumpkin Parts die instead of the Monster Thinlit.  I was tempted to use the Monster... But I was stuck with the thought of making a Riveting Pumpkin!  BTW... the monster, vampire and zombie thinlits are vanishing after this year.  So get them if you don't have them.

I love the rivets and black soot technique!


I used this metal spider charm heated it up and dropped Oil Rubbed Embossing Powder to get this bronze look.  Mine was silver.


To rub the paint off I used a dry baby wipe.  It was soft enough to rub off and totally dry... in my garbage.


Love the layering


Inky, crackly layered leaf and no I did not emboss it!


I love the crazing medium and the black soot crayon!   So crackled!  My tiny attacher was acting up and didn't want to play.  Luckily I got it all working after a jammed staple.


The Twist n' Style tool is perfect for making those tendrils out of copper.


The spider gets to twist too!


The frightful ephemera is of course awesome as a background!  I added a twisted edge along the bottom too.  I didn't think I would overly like that die cut.  I was wrong!


I really, really, really love the layering of ephemera and crackle.  I need to do this more!  Thanks for creeping by.  Check out the awesome techniques to create this months tag!


Sizzix Dies used...

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…
