Scribbly Snowflakes card with Sizzix dies

This is card featuring Sizzix Scribbly snowflake dies and Tim Holtz Festive Words dies.  I figured it was appropriate as Canada gets yet another dump of snow – what perfect time to stay inside and create!  This is a throw back from our Christmas in July because Tara is dealing with her move – I hope you enjoy it!

Perhaps you remember  I had a bit of an oops with a bottle of White Dina Wakley Media Gloss Spray several weeks ago.  You can see the card & read about it here.  Since I had a puddle of white on my desk, I started grabbing papers & tags and assorted other things and dipped them in the puddle.  I suspected that since it has a glossy finish it would be fun for a resist technique, and I was right!  This card front was plain white Cardstock, which I dipped & dripped and splattered and left to dry.

I die cut the Let if Snow from Tim Holtz Festive Words from Glitter Cardstock . Then added some colour blending to the solid layer behind it.  I found a couple of Scribbly Snowflakes left over from last year’s holiday crafting. While I don’t recall what colours I used, I took inspiration from them for the palette on this card- keeping the background softer to let them stand out.

I went to my old faithful, Distress Inks to do some colour blending over the card a subtle mix of Stormy Sky, Salvaged Patina & Chipped Sapphire.  Once it was blended, I spritzed with some water and wiped off the card to really make those glossy bits pop!

I finished everything off with a few sequins and mounted it on a light blue card base.

Remember it’s never too early to start on Christmas cards.

See you soon!

Day 12 {Tuesday with Tara take 379} Hero Arts

Happy Tuesday, and happy Day 12 of the SNS 12 Days of Christmas!  I get to feature another classic stamp company… and yet I’m not using a single stamp on my project today!

I’ve chosen to share a perfect last minute gift wrap idea, featuring a fabulous Hero Arts stencil & a fun die cut set.

Aren’t these gift tags adorable? I just had to use both shapes included in this die set (though I confess the coffee mug is what drew me in!)  I have a ton of creative ideas for these… but Christmas is coming in less than a week, y’all.  I just simply ran out of time!
These little pillow boxes were found at a dollar store and are a perfect blank canvas for so many things.  Since I love using Distress Oxide Inks on Kraft, I chose to pull out some Distress Oxide Sprays to use with this snowflake stencil.  Any holiday design, or even something like simple polka dots, would be perfect for these little packages!  I’ve used Rustic Wilderness for my green & Lumberjack Plaid for the red.   I love the splotchy oxidation on these snowflakes!

Even though I was going ultra simple for these packages & tags, a touch of glitter for the toppers didn’t take me any more time and really looks fabulous.  Sheer ribbon to tie it all together adds a bit of softness.

I’ve got plans to do more of these in different colors- they are perfect for a small gift or some Christmas cash!  They are actually *just* large enough for a simple A2 sized card to fit inside them, as well!

Today you can take advantage of all 12 days of savings & surprises- including the newest, 25% off Hero Arts!  Check out all the fun details across social media (like instagram) and have fun shopping!

Inky hugs & Merry Christmas y’all!


Day 5 {Tuesday with Tara take 378} Impression Obsession!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re enjoying the 12 Days of Christmas sale, it’s been fun seeing the fresh inspiration daily and I love seeing so many fantastic companies featured!  Today I get to feature a company that’s been around for a really long time.  They were among the first I discovered when I began stamping and their beautiful designs, especially sentiments, have been favorites for me!  (A quick search confirms it for me- the company started in 1998, so not long after I began making cards!)

I was really excited when I started seeing Classic Pooh designs become stamps this year, and IO is one of the few companies doing it!  I’ve always had a soft spot for Eeyore so this set captured my heart.  It also has beautiful sentiments to coordinate- though it was tricky fitting one on the front of my card with this large image.

This is quite a simple 5.5×5.5″ card, with the focal image stamped in black on the smooth side of some watercolor card stock.   I colored loosely with watercolor pencil crayons and then worked on the base of the card while it dried.  I’ve used a snowflake stencil & Speckled Egg Distress Inks for the base card (Distress Oxide Spray on the Kraft base and Distress Ink for the edges around the image).    The patterned paper layer is from the sweet Knit Picky 6×6 pad by Lawn Fawn.    The sweet red paper bow was die cut from the Tim Holtz Christmas “Vault” set last year.

I had to do some careful partial inking of my sentiment to fit what I could on the card front… but I’ve included my favorite sentiment from the set on the inside of the card!

As part of the 12 Days of Christmas sale, IO will be 25% off throughout the sale period!  Go check out some of their beautiful designs, you’re sure to add some classics to your stamp collection!

Inky hugs,
