Make Art Everyday

When it comes to art; what brings you motivation for 2016? For me it is creating more art in the new year. This journal page has several three dimensional elements created out of paper and ink. 
Check out the step-by-step tutorial over at the Imaginecrafts blog.

With Deepest Sympathy

This card was created using the color scheme  black, grey, white and silver. 
I used a Penny Black stamped for the background which was embossed with silver. The black banner sentiment was embossed and embellished with silver twine. I used the same silver twine on the center of the butterfly.

Peace On Earth

Today's post is a mixed media journal page created with the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. This month's prompt is silver and gold. 
My masterpiece is below.
This page has so much glitz from the gold and silver embossing powder. The Christmas tree was cut from old dictionary paper then embossed in silver. I added another layer of ultra thick embossing powder. 
This background was created by adding Elmer's glue with a platte knife. Let dry. Then drag the journal page with Delicate Gold Glitz, let dry. Finish up with Delicate Silvery Shimmer pigment ink. These inks can be purchased at Imagine Crafts. Many step-by- step projects on their blog for inspiration. 
Next I emossed a tree stamp from Penny Black in silver. I love how this adds another layer.
To represent  Christmas decorations I added sequins in silver and gold to reflect the Christmas balls and gold twine for the garland. The title alphabets were embossed with gold embossing powder.

Nordic Noel Christmas Tags

Today I have some cute Christmas tags to share with you. These were made from my stash I had purchased after the holiday last year.
This tag was created with the silver theme in mind. The wreath was created out of silver tinsel. The tag base measures 2 1/2 × 3 1/4 inches. The decorative paper strips measure 3/4" wide. I used Stamping Up Nordic Noel DSP and cut out the flags and house. I love how the strip are cut to be beyond the base tag. Stamped and embossed the Merry Christmas tag in white embossing powder.
This tag has a gold theme with the gold wreath, glittery gingerbread and highlighted with gold Stickles.

Fat & Jolly

Who would of thought, you could use inexpensive gloves to create cute hats for snowman treats. Stamp and emboss the sentiment with black embossing powder. The message is perfect for this treat gift. It says, "It's that time of year when it's good to be Fat and Jolly.' 

Cut off the fingers of the glove to make the snowman's hat. Stamp the snowman face onto plain white address labels. Wrap the label around the nugget. Embossed white cardstock with silver embossing powder and used a star punch. Attached the star with a glue gun. Make sure to attach the star to the hat and not the chocolate nugget
