To Find the Perfect Tree Train Case

Hi everyone! I am here to share my Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team’s¬† Art with Heart project for this month using the bottom half of the Train Case diecut.

I cut the bottom from¬†mat board and covered it with Graphic 45’s cardstock from the Gilded Lily collection. I know it isn’t really Christmasy but I wanted more of a wintery/snowman feel for my project since my house is decorated more in those colors. Plus I thought the little¬†girl with the tree was prefect because I can keep this out and enjoy it in the winter months ahead.

The snowman I made from a 1″ and 1 1/2″ SmoothFoam balls. I gessoed and painted with an off white paint and once dry I put together and applied Antique Mod Podge and covered with glitter. I had baked “carrot noses” from Sculpey clay according to directions on the package. I adhered the nose and two dew drops to the¬†snowman and added more glitter to the face. The “arms” are cut from wire¬†which I rolled to make hands and then inserted on either side of the body and then added a little glue to secure.

I filled the inside of the case with tissue paper, adhered the bottle brush trees to that and the snow girl image I printed from the internet. I fussy cut out and adhered to one of the trees and added the snowman. 

The silver snowflake is an ornament that I had bought in a package of snowflakes and this one was deformed so instead of tossing it I decided to use as a back ground of sorts.

I worked tulle in and around the decorations and edges the ends with the gesso and glitter.

I finished off with snowflake sequins, paper flowers and thread. Be sure to hop over to Eileen Hull’s blog and link up your Favorite Things creation and see what the rest of the inspiration team has created!

Magical

Hi everyone! With thoughts of cooler weather around the corner I wanted to share a winter card I had actually created for a magazine call and since it wasn’t selected I thought why not share. ¬†ūüôā
I started out with a folded 6″x6″ piece of Blue Bliss Thickstock from Canvas Corp. It prefect for all of the heavy embellishments I used on the card since it is thicker than normal cardstock. ¬†

I layered a variety of different wintery cardstocks on the front of the card and then added an actual snowflake Christmas ornament along with this adorable chipboard snowman from Canvas Corp. This set of 49 wintery chipboard pieces are in the shop for only $2.25. Love me a good bargain!!! ūüôā

I finished it off with tulle, tiny felt snowflake and other embellishments. The magical banner was from a rub on that at the moment I can’t remember what company…this is what happens when you start getting old…if I do I will update. ūüėČ

Bundle Up Cause it’s Cold Outside!

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a project I created using a folded 6″x6″ piece of Winter Retreat Glitter Swirl Cardstock. I printed this free digital image from Land of Nod Studio. I love the fun colors of the clothing on the¬†children in this photo.

I added burlap as a mat to the photo along with a crumpled piece of Brown on Brown Glitter Cardstock and beige scalloped tulle which I gathered, folded and tied off with thread.

 Also I cut a snowflake from some thin white chipboard, inked the edges with a light blue chalk ink. I adhered it to the card base and added sequins and dew drops. Next I added pop dots to the back of the digital image and then adhered to the card and lastly I made several bows from brown thread and glued around the image and then finished off with a  chipboard snowflake. And there you have it…I really love how this card turned out and hope you like it too.

Winter Cup of Tea

Hi everyone! I’m back to share one of my¬†projects I had in the works for Christmas but just ran out of time to get it posted. The first time I seen one of these paper tea cups was one that Renea shared on her blog. Oh my gosh!!! It was absolutely stunning and I knew I had to created one of these for myself. It is easy peasy to create too!!! All I had to do was print the¬†Paper Tea Cup and Saucer¬†pattern off on Boy Polka Dot Stamp cardstock¬†and cut out and adhere everything together.

I used Zip Dry glue to adhere all the tea cup and saucer pieces together. It is a strong glue and you don’t have to worry about your project coming apart either. Also I glimmer misted a paper doily and¬†once dry I adhered on top of the saucer.

Now for the fun part…DECORATING!!!

I added a small amount of tissue paper inside the tea cup to give me something to adhere to.¬†I googled vintage children images and found this sweet little girl all bundled up in her wintry finery and knew she would be perfect for my little tea cup. I printed her on hp soft gloss photo paper and then fussy cut her out. For her “wings” I cut a small section off of a snowflake Christmas ornament and added some more extra fine glitter. Once dry I glued to the back of my little girl and then I adhered her to the tissue paper.

I also used Silver Classic Glitter Cardstock to make the rosette,¬†Winter Glitter Chipboard Snowflakes die cut and the Metallic Teal Dew Drops are all from the Robin’s Nest.

The cardstock doily is from Gina’s Designs which I cut in half. ¬†I added¬†different bits and pieces of lace inside the tea cup, sprigs of pearls and flowers. Next I added¬†gesso here and¬†there around on the lace and sprinkled glitter to give it a shimmery look.

I added another dew drop to some snowflake sequins on the handle and a flower bud with more pearl sprigs and I’m finished. I so love how this wintery tea cup fairy child turned out! I can see me making more of these in the future. ūüôā
