Jingle all the Way

November has been a very bust month for crafting.  Not that I can show off much yet.  I have left my 12 Tags November to the last moment so I could meet all (some) of my (CHA) deadlines.
I love this foiled look.  It has such a vintage feel.  I wish I could have found some silver foil but gold is what I could find...so make it work!  I was tempted to create a pumpkin Autumn tag since I love all things Autumn.  But, I have been lured by the festive season.

Flipping through my many blueprint stamps I settled on the jingle bell.  The lantern almost won!


Instead of the cork I layered some frosted film and mirrored sheet cutting out Bells with the Alphanumeric thinlit.  Adding the "jingle" over top with distressed core paper.


I stamped wee snowflakes from the new Christmas Magic set.  Then I sprayed tumbled glass and twisted citron.  


Using a small piece of tinsel twine I tied off these Victorian Snowflakes from Emerald Creek Craft Supply to the wee arrow.  


All the embossing and de-embossing is hard to see.  I did the same foil technique on the jingle.


I love the background on this tag from the stamping with distress paint, spraying and the foil.

Sorry I'm so late to the party.  I had every intention to get this banged out earlier!  Oh well... craft happens!!!

Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek.

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…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
