Christmas Tag (with a feminine twist!): Sweet Little Penguin Tag

 

Sweet Little Penguin Tag

Ellen Hutson always creates a beautiful series of Christmas Tags with a feminine twist! This year I’m paired up with the amazing Carissa Wiley and I’m going to guess I’ll be outglittered by her sparkly self…she is SO talented! (Go see her tag here!)

Our inspiration picture is this one: gotta LOVE all the black and white with a pop of green, all with kraft underlying it. And detailed ribbons and stitching!

I made a quick lil video for my tag – and giftwrap! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Aren’t these the sweetest lil penguins ever!?!? Watch my Instagram for more of them in coming weeks – I won’t be making lots of videos or doing blog posts through December, but I’ll be sharing the rest of my Christmas cards with crazy backgrounds on IG and Fb!

The giftwrap is so super easy….just watercolor on kraft!

And for those who are in the Clearly Copic Glass class.…this is a crazy version of the candy jar lesson!

Bible Journaling this week

All through Advent I’ll be sharing techniques for backgrounds – this time I actually used acrylic paint!

Easy Christmas Stamped Bags

It’s getting late to show any more Christmas cards (scroll back through my blog if you still need ideas, I’ve shared a gajillion!) – so how about some simple stamped kraft bags? I picked these up at my dollar store – and can easily make the 20 needed! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

And I’m also guesting on the MFT blog today using the same stamp set and my Albrecht Durer pencils….go see!

Nativity Week #4: Critter Nativity

Nativity Week #4: Critter Nativity

And now for something yet a bit different – another nativity, but this time attended by critters only!

Nativity Week #4: Critter Nativity

I decided since I had some of the new Purple Onion stamps from their recent release that are facing into the card – drawing a little manger between them would be perfect! But the art supplies I grabbed along the way gave me a little surprise….but it kinda worked anyway. Enjoy the speed coloring – and my silly chatter! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

These are the colors used on this card, from the Caran d’Ache line of Museum Aquarelle watercolor pencils.

Purple Onion is having their yearly sale – so you just might want to check it out HERE!

Hop over for a sale on classes – no coupon necessary! Also, for anyone buying a class today – I have 12 flat rate envelopes filled with stamps and dies to send out to random students, so if you’ve been waiting to sign up for a class, today’s the best day!

Stamp and Color a Mason Jar

Inktense pencils on Neenah? Oh yeah! Just use a teensy bit of water. I was amazed it worked so well! I also show you how to stamp the stems under the glass so that you can make the glass look right. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I finished the card off with a simple stitched die around the edges, and the sentiment on a vellum panel taped to the back of it.

Fall Flowers Series 2018 #6: Masculine Floral Card

Fall Flowers Series 2018 #6: Masculine Floral Card

 

Fall Flowers Series 2018

I love creating a little series of videos for you sometimes….kind of like a mini public “class”! I had a bunch of flower stamps in my growing stash that I haven’t shown yet, so they’ll be collected together this week into a series. Enjoy!

Masculine Floral Card

I threw myself a challenge – make a fall floral that could be sent to a GUY!? You’ll have to decide if I achieved it or not…… Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Colors used…I misspoke, weathered wood is walnut stain. W’s ya know?

So tell me…is it masculine?? lol! My dad used to always say “Take it easy” instead of “Bye!”….so I used this sentiment from this sloth set.
