tag themed reindeer and holly This is the second tag I made with the theme “reindeer and holly.”

As in the first one I made, we were asked to use reinkers and spritzed water for the background.  I used Distress Ink — I think it may have been Old Paper — and spritzed water generously. It gave a nice, subtle tag colour that I like quite a bit.

I cut scallops around the edges using a set of Martha Stewart corner and edging punches.

The reindeer is a die cut from velvet paper, using a Memories die.

The holly is a rubber stamp using green ink. I added red glitter glue for the holly.

I gave the reindeer a red rhinestone collar. It is not Rudolph, by the way. I am honouring one of the lesser known reindeer — possibly Donder LOL

I finished by tying some fibre at the top, for hanging.

art journal entry with melted wax I am a less than enthusiastic art journal person. For whatever reason, the process just doesn’t inspire me. I greatly appreciate art journals made by others, but personally, not so much.

At Art for the Creative Mind, we had a challenge in which we were to use wax in our journaling. This is what I came up with.

I drew the bird and the tree freehand. Then I covered the page with melted candle wax. I attempted to colour the bird with melted candles of various colours.  I added a little stamping on top of the melted wax and some journaling with coloured pencils. Lastly, I punched out a few leaf shapes and glued them on.

 

I called the page “Cedar Wax Wing” in a fit of whimsey.

4 x 4 with garden theme This 4″ x 4″ page is intended for a chunky book or a fat book. The theme is “Secret in my Garden” and its a swap for Art for the Creative Mind.

It looks better in real life. The colours didn’t really show up well on this picture.

 

In any case, I stamped the fairy image on glossy card stock, and then colored with Copic Markers.

I used the Quince Die Cut from Sizzix to make the flowering cherry trees, and I used a punch to make the leaves. I added a little green Fun Flock to the leaves.

I trimmed around the edges with pale pink ribbon.

kid's easter card I made this kid’s Easter card for a three year old girl. The yellow is scrapbook paper.  I made the yellow border using a Martha Stewart border punch.

The decorate elements on the purp0le strip are stamped images that I have coloured. I coloured the chicks with colored pencils and colored the bunnies with glitter glue.
The egg in the upper right hand side is also a stamped image. I stamped it with red ink and heat embossed it.

Inside the card, a stamped message reads Easter Greetings.

steampunk Halloween themed 4 x 4 This 4 x 4 is made for a swap at AFTCM. The project was a 4 x 4, or a page for a fat book or chunky book. The theme is Steampunk Halloween.

My background is paper by Tim Holtz. It isn’t truly steampunk but it sort of looks steampunky to me.

My main element is what I call Gear Head Glue Cat. The black cat is made from an acrylic stamp and hot glue from a glue gun. When cool, I painted the glue cat with black gesso, then added some metallic rubons.
I made a couple of gears using a punched shape that is heat embossed with pewter embossing powder. I attached these as shown and ran a small chain between the two.
I second element is half of a plastic skeleton from the Dollar Store. I cut the skeleton in half and then painted it with pearl colored Luminiere paint by Jacquard.

Here’s hoping my swap partner is pleased.

easel card This easel card is made for a swap. The theme was butterflies or dragonflies. The directions for making an easel card can be found on splitcoaststampers.com web site.

As you see, I used yellow and blue card stock for the  card itself.

The floral element is an example of punch art, made with a punch-ins stamp from Make an Impression. The shape is stamped, heat embossed with a mint colored opaque embossing powder, cut and attached with  dimensional tape.  The flowers are made from punches.

The text along the side reads, “Laugh, Hope, Dance, Love, Wish, Dream”. It is also stamped and heat embossed.

The butterfly at the bottom is made with a punch.

The sentiment, at the bottom, also from Make an Impression, reads, ” “A butterfly, when pursued, is just beyond your grasp, but if you will sit down quietly, it may alight upon you.”

I put a couple of rhinestones along the butterfly’s body.

pop-up twirl card with twirling butterfly This card is made using the tutorial for the Pop-up Twirl Card at Splitcoaststampers.com.

On the outside, a square piece of patterned vellum reads You’ve Got Style.  It sits on a die cut made using scrapbook paper and a Tim Holtz die.

I made a butterfly using a punch, and attached it to the left hand corner. I added a rhinestone bead in the center of the butterfly.

Since this is a pop-up twirl card, the main feature is on the inside. The card opens to a double sided butterfly that twirls around as the card opens and closes. I also added rhinestone beads to each side of the twirling butterfly.

The twirling butterfly is made from the same scrapbook paper as the Tim Holtz die cut on the outside.

This card is entered in the Playing in Paradise Challenge #72. This challenge is a sketch challenge and by coincidence, this card basically matches the sketch they used.

artist trading card with newsprint background I am involved in an ATC swap, in which we work through the alphabet, systematically creating techniques starting with each letter.

This technique is N. I didn’t know of any techniques starting with the letter N, so I created my own. I call this one Newsprint Glam.  It didn’t scan well, but in real life, the look is quite interesting.

I started with a strip of newspaper. I used the sport section since it is always in pristine condition at my place. I am not a sports fan.

I colored the newsprint with green and blue artist chalk.

Next, I sprayed with Radiant Rain and Glimmer Mist.

When this dried, I gave a coat of glitter Mod Podge to seal.

The last step involved making the actual artist trading card. The butterfly is cut from the pages of a book, I think. It was sent to me as a RAK but I think it is a punched shape.

napkin fold card with Vintage French theme, open
napkin fold card with Vintage French theme, open

This card is the final version of the napkin fold card that I made for the swap at Art for the Creative Mind.

The paper is scrapbook paper with a French theme. It doesn’t show up well in the images, but the small triangles contain script written in the French language.

The border is made with a set of border and corner punches from Martha Stewart. They are one of the All Around the Page sets.

The flower in the middle was given to me in a flower swap. It is made from metal and appears to be colored with alcohol inks. The small heart in the middle is a button.

I added a lavender colored chiffon ribbon that ties the card together.

napkin fold card, closed This is another practice card I made when teaching myself how to do this fold — which is actually easier than it looks.

The card is made the same way as the one in the previous post, following directions found on Split Coast Stampers web site. The borders are made a set of punches from Martha Stewart: Martha Stewart Crafts All Around the Page Punch.

The button in the center was sent to me in a flower swap at Art for the Creative Mind. It is crocheted by hand and has a button in the middle.
