I shared one pedant of this banner earlier during the Funkie Junkie tag challenge so today I will share the remaining.
I used papers by My Minds Eye and printed the words fron my computer. The fancy tags framing the words are by Spellbinders. I used a Spellbinders Pointsetta die to make all the flowers and of course the TH snowflake die. I am pleased with the results although I wish the pictures showed it better.
Here are all the pieces up close. And here it is over our fireplace.
I am sure many of you have heard this saying before but it is so true. I am blessed and thankful that God sent his son, Jesus Christ, to earth to be born so that one day he could shed his blood on the cross and pay for my sins and yours. I know for sure that I have eternal life in heaven when I die because I have accepted Jesus as the Savior from my sins. I have so much to celebrate this CHRISTmas! I hope you do too! Remember to hold your loved ones close.
Hey everyone, I am back to share a card that is not related to Christmas. My fabulous father-in-Law had a birthday this past week so this is the card I made. I used the Flower Bet stamp set to make the ‘K’. I also used the Bingo card and the Leaves to layer my background. All these stamps are from Red Rubber Designs. Don’t forget to check out the holiday specials.
Gotta run, tomorow we travel.
A little card I made from a vintage cookbook page. The stamps are from Pink Persimmon. I used a dress pattern stamp from Style Girl for my background. I also used a sentiment from the Holly Wreath stamp set. I cut out all those holly leaves from patterned paper and added glitter glue berries.
Tag 9 I loved the distressed woodgrain background that Linda used. I took an old disguarded tag and used a woodgrain stencil and molding paste to achieve my background. I added glitter too. I love how the whole thing looks like sparkling snow.
Tag 10 Linda used a fabulous brick embossed background with white snow capping the chimney. I love it. So, I embossed the brick and distressed with firebrick red.i added puffy paint and glitter for my snow. I layered lots of die cuts and of course, another snowflake rosette.
Tag 11 The lace, flower, flourishes and greenery spoke to me on Linda’s eleventh tag. It was gorgeous how she tied vintage colors in with the white. I used a flower taken from a previous failed project and die cut leaves. The flourishes are grungeboard stained with the brass metallic stain and glittered.
Tag 12 I silver embossed the background and sprayed it red inspired by Linda’s background. I added several die cuts on top, a flower, some of Linda’s seam binding and some metallic chain trim.
Whew, I think I did it. I can’t believe I finished but I did. Don’t forget to check out Linda’s Store. And thanks for staying with me. You all deserve a prize. Have a great night.
Well, I am back to complete my twelve tags. I am playing along with Linda over at The Funkie Junkie. It ends today at midnight but hey, better late than never. So, I may be fitting this into several posts so sit back and relax.
This is my tag 2. I took my inspiration from Linda’s metal background. I used metal foil sheets from Linda’s Store and embossed them. I also lived how she used gears on her tag so I incorporated some into mine.
For Tag 3 I took my inspiration from Linda’s background. I loved how she mixed the acrylic paint with metallic distress stains. I used light blue paint and the pewter distress stain for my background. I like how the colors are more pastel than my usual scheme.
Tag 4’s inspiration came from Linda’s pretty gingham background. Country is not my style but I love a challenge. I think this is a mix of vintage country. I used a gingham background stamp and a sticker from Tim Holtz’s seasonal sticker pad.
Tag 5 I decided to make a pendant for my Christmas banner inspired by tag 5. I love how Linda used a beautiful rosette in the center of her tag. I tried my hand at more snowflake rosettes and I am hooked. I’ll show the rest of the banner in another post.
Tag 6 I took my inspiration from the beautiful background on Linda’s tag. I love the vintage brown and the text. I took some pretty music and text paper and distressed it. I then embossed in white and added some more rosettes. Love them!
Tag 7 I love the pretty little scene that Linda stamped on her tag. It reminded me of the perfect home snuggled under sparkling snow. I took a door from Webster’s Pages and cut it out. I stamped the street lamp from Wendy Vecci. I added some cut glass (I can’t remember the name) to the pinecones, street lamp, and ground. I think it looks like a very homey scene.
Tag 8 I loved the red embossing on Linda’s tag. I decided to add some red embossing to this star ornament. I then added a coordinating snowflake rosette with the cut glass and an October Afternoon Tin Pin.
I’ll be back with the next post soon.
My friend used to own a stamp store quite a few years back. As she was cleaning up some leftovers she kindly gave me several blank albums and boxes to alter. I chose to alter this one for Pink Persimmon. I used the Mini Silhouettes and Monogram stamp set and the Perfumery stamp sets.
A short tutorial will be posted over on the Pink Persimmon Blog today.
Are you ready for Christmas? I can’t believe it is less than two weeks away!!
Today is the day I get to share my e-book project for Pink Persimmon. I will just share the photos. For the tutorial on this project you will have to go to the Website and sign up for the free newsletter. You will then be able to download the ebook with this tutorial plus all the tutorials for the Christmas projects by the creative team.
So, I started out with this tool box I saved from the trash bin. My boys were done playing with it so I thought it would be perfect for altering. Here is the front view.
Here Are the two sides.
As I said, you can see step by step for this project by downloading the free e-book. I hope you enjoy the tutorial.
I made two cards for todays Red Rubber Designs post as I was having so much playing around. I used the Sunshine stamp set for both cards.
For this first card I tried a technique I have wanted to try for a while using alcohol ink. I think next time I’ll try different colored inks when stamping to make the images more prominent.
I tried a simple card with a Gingham background. I started out without any color but realized it was killing me to not spray anything. So here is what I ended up with. Stop by the RRD Shop to see all their new products.
Well, its that time again. Another month and another hop. This months featured stamp set is Flowers and Holly. The whole month of December we are going floral.
My project is an altered magnetic clipboard and tag. I painted and gessoed the clipboard. I chose to silver emboss the holly leaf as this will be a Teacher’s gift. The clipboard came with a shopping list.
The tag uses the More Mimi Patterned Paper in the background. I silver embossed a sentiment from the With His Glory stamp set. The pine cones have been die cut and glittered. The silver leaves are the petals from the pointsetta in the Hung on a Tree stamp set that have been embossed and cut apart. My background stamp is from the Vintage Santa stamp set.
Contest Details – The contest for the month is to guess the total number of flowers in the floral arrangement in the attached photo. Only 1 guess is allowed and should be sent to contest@RedRubberDesigns.com. One winner will be chosen from the correct answers. If there is no correct guess, the person who comes the closest will receive the spotlight stamp ” Flowers and Holly”. In case of a tie, a random draw will take place between those tied. Contest ends Sunday, December 9 at midnight CST.

Enjoy the hop!
Here is a Christmas card I made using mostly Pink Persimmon stamps. The Holly Wreath Stamp set was used for the background and the Santa. The Santa was stamped and colored using glitter glue and puffy paint. I used gesso and smooch sprays on the background and layered a few Spellbinders die cuts.
I just wanted to let you know that Pink Persimmon is having a giveaway. They will be giving away two of their new stamp sets to one lucky person who comments on their giveaway post. Comment on the Pink Persimmon post Here. Below are the stamp sets up for grabs.

I really love these Lynne Perrella stamps! Aren’t they gorgeous?? And the dressform stamp was free with my purchase.
I feel like I am getting the hang of the card thing. I am certainly getting enough practice. Thank you for stopping. Hope you are getting all your Christmas crafting started! December is already here.
