Mid Summer GIVEAWAY on CNS!!!!!

"Oh Baby" Nursery Decor and GIVEAWAY!!!!

I don't even remember the last time I did a Giveaway?  And you all keep coming back!  Me so lucky;)  But hey, it's time for a MID SUMMER GIVEAWAY!!!!  I have a packed summer and I want to say thanks for coming around, even when I'm not posting as often as I would like.  Details are after the Nursery Decor project!

***I am giving away 20 Digi's in 2 sets of 10 and 1 Cricut Cart.  That's 3 winners!***


 
My SIL's nephew is having a baby and I wanted to send a gift for the nursery.  I found out the  baby's colours and got to work!  Charlotte is due next month and I am so excited for them.  So since the baby shower is on the weekend I headed out to Michaels and my LSS for some supplies!
 


I picked up one large wooden letter (C) from Michaels.  I went to my LSS and found this adorable Carta Bella paper, Paris Girl. I wanted both images on the letter so when I traced out the "C" I was sure to trace the images as centered as I could.

Once you have modge podged the paper onto the letter do a second layer on top of the paper.  Then I sanded the edges.  This evens out the edges and shows the inked edges.

I used my TH Big Die Word Play for the grunge board letters, painted with Snow Cap White, sand the edges and add Victorian Velvet ink.

Place your letters where you want them. 

I added a circle and scallop punch for each letter in the matching paper.  Also some whimsical accents with these butterflies and a pretty crown. 

Some sheer ribbon attached with my heavy duty stapler is applied to the back. 

I glued all my letters on using Tom Bo glue.  I crown has added gems and glossy accents.

I ran the butterflies through the embossing folders then added some stickles.

I was careful to show as much of the image on the paper.

I think I dined at that cafe!  This butterfly is popped just above the Eiffel Tower.

I alternated the DP circles and scallops for each letter.

Viola!

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.
