Chausten

Got Candy?  Chausten wants to know.  Why are we compelled to name these Hipsters?

I have to be honest... I am not a huge fan of the Hipster stamps.   With that said I do like Goat and the monkey.  Luckily my crafty bestie Julia over at Paradise Lost bought these last week and let me do some stamping.  I just wanted to play and keep it simple and fun.  Easter is just around the corner and I had an idea.


I stamped Chausten onto the new Distress Mixed Media Tag and covered him in Distress Glaze to minimize the inking on him.  I did a simple blend of distress inks for the rest of the tag. No... I don't have the Distress Oxide inks yet!


I layered the Doily stencil and lattice rubbing off the ink between stencils with a baby wipe.  I cut the "GOT CANDY" with the Pastel Leather Paper pack and Alphanumeric letters.  Use the Magnetic Platform to keep everything from shifting.  Ink the edges so they pop!


Get the placement of the letters before adhering.  I decided a little ephemera needed to be here so some Ranger matte multi medium and black soot distress crayon really pulled it together.  I tucked the letters into the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker, rub and BAM instant sticky letters and not fingers.


OK, I added the Crazy Things bunny ears for fun!  I hate to fussy cut so I would get the Crazy Things Framelit if I was you.


I added the teeniest Small Tattered Florals for a pop of colour.


The Medium Bow Punch makes quick work for Chausten's bow tie!


Layering the stencils shows a subtle background effect.


Tied off with a fluffy bow inked with wilted violet distress ink.


Chausten and I had fun.  Although he doesn't seem too pleased with his bunny ears.  It was fun to create... just for fun for a change.  Chausten thinks so too...

    1. I think either you like them or don't. I did a number of stamped images just so I could have a few. But I will borrow... unless I find them for cheap...hehe!

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…
