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.


Grouping up the glittery Mini Holiday Greens in black and white topped with a Sizzix Fold Up Bows.The edges of Peace are inked up so it pops from …

Merry & Oh So Bright

Celebrating the season with a little holiday inspiration.  I got this Cigar Box from Xyron all boxed up with some other goodies.  I have always wanted to craft with a cigar box so I thought I would go all festive.


You know the Quote Chips packaging... well it's perfect for holding my glass vintage ornaments.  Just trim the top, fill and snap it back together.  This packaging snuggles in perfectly with the Vignette Box Top, Merry & Bright.

Create a base and top  with chipboard and layer with Christmas Paper using the Creative Station.  Attach the pieces with the Mega Runner to the bottom and lid of the cigar box.  Cut the Cabinet die with more paper and chipboard.

Adhere the pattern paper the Cameo Frame.  Layer some Christmas Ephemera using Distress Collage Medium Crazing and smudge some black soot distress crayon.   Attach the Christmas Paper Dolls gentleman and tree with a Mirrored Star on top.

So festive...

The Merry and Bright is a perfect fit!

Add some lights.

Love the c…

Poinsettia

Break out the Jingles... Christmas crafting is happening!

There's a new team up this week betweenXyronandWaffle Flower and all week the team is sharing some awesome inspirational projects.  Check out this step by step using my pages from a 115 year old book and my Mega Runner pulling it all together.


I gathered some Tidings paper and Super Stock for the base of my card.  I then grabbed my very old pages for the tattered poinsettia and background with a little white gesso to take the inking.
The tattered poinsettia is spray stained and added a little matching ink to punch it up.  The Stamp Platform is perfect for stamping this 115 year old paper.  No mistakes when it comes to working with paper this old.

OK, maybe one mistake!  Paper this old is fragile and it stuck to the stamps.  But that's OK that's what glue and adhesive is for.  I mounted the paper to a piece of super stock with the mega runner.  Then applied a little glue n' seal for the ripped off bit.  Like it …

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.
