Sleigh Memory - Dex by Clear Scraps~

H there!
 I'm so excited to share the NEW Sleigh Memory-Dex
 by Clear Scraps. They carry a selection of  Memory-Dex boxes
 along with the dividers, that go in the boxes.  You can
 design your own Memory-Dex with all the
fun Clear Scraps products. 

I have listed the supplies you will need to create the Sleigh
Supply List
Clear Scraps: Memory-Dex/Sleigh
Index cards: Vintage Chip 2
Vintage Acrylic 2
Scallop Chip 2
Scallop Acrylic 2
Chipboard Words: MERRY and CHRISTMAS
Border Stencil: Checker Board
other: pattern paper, adhesive (wet) and dry, scenery
stamps, greeting stamps, acrylic paint, Tim Holts
Paper Dolls, shape dies, color mediums (markers,
Pan pastels and colored pencils).

1. Trace the shape of the sleigh on pattern paper and cut out.
Do both sides of the sleigh plus the front and back rectangles between the sides.
2. Stamp the scene on both sides using Archival ink/ Jet Black. 
Using a stamping platform is helpful.
3. Adhere the sleigh cut out to the birch wood cut out. Do both sides.
Beacon Acid Free works great for this. Sand all edges with a sanding block.
4. Stencil the backside of both sleigh pieces using the Checker Board
stencil by Clear Scraps, using dark green acrylic paint.  Also paint
the end pieces with beige acrylic paint.
5. Add Beacon 521 to the edges of the sleigh and line up with
the notches to assemble the sleigh. If the sides are lined up with the
pre-cut notches it slips right in.  
6. Add color to the stamped scene on both sides using Pan Pastels, colored pencils
or markers.  Then shade the edges with Brown ink/Pan Pastel.
7. Paint the chipboard words (MERRY & CHRISTMAS) with dark green acrylic
paint and let dry.  Adhere in place.
8. Finish stamping extras for the scenes and then speckle with white
and black acrylic paint. Place the wood pegs inside and secure the ends with glue.

Index cards:
1. Cover the chipboard index cards with pattern paper and send edges.
2. Die cut Scallop or postage stamp shape for the acrylic index cards.  You
will need two for each acrylic index card. One for each side and secure.
3.  Attach the Paper Dolls to the chipboard index cards giving the appearance
they are on a sleigh ride.
4. The acrylic index cards have dimensional adhesive used to secure the shape.
This also gives a buffer between each index card.
5. Add the Christmas sentiment to the front of the index card cluster
and add twine for color.

You are God Art Journal Page~

Hi there!
Last night I created an Art Journal Page
using a few of the new stamps and stencils by
Creative Worship (formerly Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps)
Instead of my go to medium (Distress Oxide inks)  I used 
Dylusions Spray inks by Ranger. 

The inspiration, for the page, came from a song we sang at church last
Sunday. Such a great song ! Wish I new the name of it to share but I don't.
I jotted down key phrases and words that spoke to me.
This is a new size of journal for me ~ bigger.  Worked
just fine!!

I sprayed the page with coordinating colors of ink and then
added in the Leaf  Fronds stencil.  I used the Typewriter Text
Background stamp to the page with black ink.  I went ahead and 
stamped all the letters, text and flower images on heavy cardstock
and cut them out.

My next step is laying all of the elements, on the page, so I
can see how I want to design the page. I keep adding in stamps and
stencils until I love the page:):) 

The sets I used are: Texture Tiles 1, Vintage Type Alpha, Worthy
King Alpha, Sketched Florals, Typewriter Text BG, Nature

Silhouettes and Grunge Elements 3.  Stencils used are: Leaf
Fronds, Diamond Tile and Cross Stitch.
other supplies used: Dylusions Spray inks,  Distress Oxide inks
and Multi Med Matte. Adhesives by Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L. 

Thanks for stopping by
and have a great weekend!

Fruit Tag with Shaker Elementz by BGM ~

Hi there!
Today I'm sharing a mixed media tag using Shaker Elementz 
by Buttons Galore & More (affiliate link) for a tag border. 
I'm using bits and pieces to cover the scallop border
of the tag.  

Using Distress Oxide inks, along with stamps and stencils, to 
create a mixed media background for the tag.  Extra fruit 
images were stamped, colored and trimmed to use on the front
of the tag.

The sentiments are stamped, trimmed out and added to the 
tag front. A fabric tie is added, to the top of the tag, and a mini
bottle, filled with Shaker Elementz (SLM116), is tied to the fabric, 
along with buttons from the Sun & Surf Box.

The scalloped border is covered with Shaker Elementz (SLM116)
using wet glue.  To complete the tag it is speckled with
white acrylic paint. All adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Creating an envelope for a Mixed Media tag~ ~

Hi there!
Today I'm sharing how easy it is to create an
envelope, for a tag, making it 
just like a card.  Perfect to hand to
that special person!
This is the tag I made the envelope for:

The original post is HERE.  

I added a birthday sentiment and stamped a legal size 
envelope with the same stamp used for the tag. The entire process 
took about 30 minutes.  Then I added her name using 
alphabet stamps.  Buttons make a fun embellishment to dangle
from the top of the tags.  I'm using Flower Power by
Buttons Galore and More

Ready to hand to her at church.  I love that I can gift things
that I make.
Products used: Stamps: Creative Worship by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  Tag: Studio Light.
Inks: Ranger: Distress Oxide inks.

States Stencil & Stamp Thru Set by Blue Knight Stamps~

Hi there!!!
Today I'm sharing one of the NEWLY released Stamp
Thru Stencils called  States by Blue Knight Stamps.
I put a patriotic spin to it and love how it came together.

The white cardstock is stamped using the Dictionary Page BG stamp.
I then stenciled, starting at the bottom left corner, across the card.
I used Distress Oxide inks.  Put the card front on a stamping
platform for the next step.

Use the Statue of Liberty and Skyline stamp for the center image.
Stamp several time to get good converge. Stamp the
sentiments out of white cardstock using the God Bless America
stamps. Trim out and outline the rectangle if you like the look.
For an added mixed media vibe I speckled white acrylic paint
in random spots.

Thanks for stopping by!!
I'll be sharing more from Blue Knight Stamps soon :):)

added in to tell the story in a dimensional way.  Acrylic paint
is added to the sides of the tag.
