Wine Gifting- Beyond the Bag!

Wine is a great hostess gift during the holidays and we are known to give some of our favorite wines to our neighbors. Also, my husband gives these to his managers along with a gift card every year.  Since a wine bag doesn't cut it... here's what I do!
 
I made 15 tags altogether with 3 designs.  Why don't I just make 15 tags the same?  Honestly, I switch it up for me otherwise I would get bored!

Tag #1- Yep, my pretty Tattered Poinsettia.  I stamped the tag, clear embossed for a resist and inked with Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Inks.  Super easy!


Tag #2- A little more involved.  But oh so cute.  Inking the tag in Crushed Olive, Forrest Moss and Peeled Paint Distress Inks.  The pine tree die is cut on grunge board, the Movers and Shapers baby deer in the snow is cut with cork and I made. The Daddy Deer has antlers using a branch cut from Movers and Shapers.


Stamped in green and clear embossed is the TH Christmas Stamp, then I inked the whole tag in Firebrick and Barn Red Distressed Inks.  The Candelabra and Spider die makes this fun candle when you cut the end candles off.  Then I simple attached the Movers and Shapers Mini Wreath over the candle.


I needed to attach the gift cards.  So I used my TH Pocket Envelope die, cutting off the flap and a 1" circle punch for the notch.  I simply stamped the deer and sentiment from SMS Christmas Cheer set.


All the bottles lined up.  Now that's how you gift a wine bottle!


Just an added festive flare for gifting this holiday season.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…

Mixed Media Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.
