Good evening Blogging Friends!

I don't know about you but Christmas is my favorite time of year!  I love designing everything Christmas in my studio, decorating my home, the smell of pumpkin bread floating in the air, and listening to Christmas carols.  I must admit, I'm like a child this time of year, all giddy with excitement!  (And yes I snoop just like a child...but don't tell my husband)

Here's a set of cards using paper from Authentique and all my favorite bling from Want 2 Scrap!  Enjoy!!

Candy here and today I am sharing how to create a Christmas tree Peace Christmas Ornament featuring Want2Scrap's 4" Large Round Ornament Chipboard Shape.  The design paper is from Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettia Paper Collection and the poinsettia, leaves and holly leaves were also created using Heartfelt Creations' stamps with coordinating dies.

I painted the 4" Large Round Ornament Chipboard Shape with Gesso. Next I inked the top of the ornament with Gold Brilliance Ink,  added Gold Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess and heat set it.  I traced the ornament shape on my design paper and cut it out.  I adhered it to the chipboard shape with Dries Clear Adhesive and then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I adhere the Beautiful Bling Borders by Nina Brackett - Chevron to the center of the ornament, cutting to fit as needed.  Next I adhered the poinsettia, leaves and holly berry leaves as shown.

Want2Scrap Mixed Media Journey Card

Hello Want2Scrap friends, it is Linda here, thank you for stopping by. Today I have a Mixed Media card to share with you, created using an eclectic mix of products including Chipboard, Washi Tape and Border Bling.  You can see how it all comes together below.

I have started with a pre-cut card base and some negative Die cuts from the Seth Apter Trifecta Etched Dies as my card front.  A Small Strip of both the Toffee and the Blue Washi Tapes have been added to the top corners and the card front is layered onto white card stock but slightly larger and adhered to the card front using double sided tape.

The Owl is one of my handmade embellishments using Paper Clay and coloured using Chameleon PensIt has been adhered to the centre of the negative dies using Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry.

BEAUTIFUL BLING BORDERS BY NINA BRACKETT - CHEVRON  have been added  below the owl and one strip along the lower edge of  the card front.  The Border comes in individual strips and are easy to use separately or create rows of them.  Three co-ordinating feathers from the Die D-Lites Two Feathers Etched Dies have been cut/embossed and lightly sanded.  These have then been tied with fine twine at the top and adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Small beads from my stash have been added to the ends of the twine.

The Journey - Fancy Chipboard has been coloured using  Chameleon Pens, I have coloured it three time to give the depth of colour and then added a coat of Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Electric Yellow.  Once this has dried it has been adhered to the top of the card using Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry.

Random splatters of the Pico Embellisher in Electric Yellow have been added to the card front, along with light splashes of white paint.

Good afternoon!  I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful fall colors!  It's such an inspiration to watch the leaves fall and listen to the wind whisper new promises.  I finally ordered pictures from our adventures in Germany and I'm so excited to share our journey with you.  Here's some pics of the start of our journey and the beginning of our next adventure album.  This was a major accomplishment for me since I've never traveled outside of the United States and as a chaperone for some high school German students.  It was an amazing experience and I can't wait to go again.

Want2Scrap Journal Page

Hello Want2Scrap friends, it is Linda here from 'The Land Down Under' -  thank you for stopping by. Today I am sharing a page from my ART Journal, using Want2Scrap products.  Journaling is a fairly new art form for me but I am loving the journey and am continually learning - and having a lot of fun doing it.

It all started with the Mad Hatter stamp - love at first sight, especially growing up with 'Alice in Wonderland' I coloured him using Chameleon Pens, fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped him up onto  patterned paper using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares for that little bit of dimension. The strip he is adhered above is from some handmade patterned paper I created and have used a couple of times on this page.

The sentiment is an eclectic mixture of Spellbinders Simply Said Etched Alphabet Dies, stickers and computer generated.  they have been adhered using Beacon Adhesive liquid glue and of course the stamped sentiment from Tim Holtz.

Using the Brick Stencils and Imagine Radiant Neon Inks, brickwork has  been randomly  added around the photos - in both big and small sections - the stencils wash clean with warm soapy water.  Stenciling is such a a great effect and very quick and easy - so many mediums can be used - ink, paint, gesso just to name a few.

The Gear Corners 2 Pack Chipboard Embellishment  has been sponged using Imagine Delicata Inks to add a wonderful shimmer.  The edges have been defined using a White Gel Pen.  It has been adhered to the top left portion of layout using  Beacon Adhesive liquid glue.

Pumpkin Stack

Hello Want2scrap friends, Lovita here! Today I want to share with you one of my fall cards.

I just love the texture and look of burlap so, I used a black 5x7 card as a base for this design. I  began by placing a Want2Scrap Silver Rhinestone Swirl in the top right corner of the card.

I painted the Want2Scrap chipboard shaped Small Pumpkin Stack using Americana paint in Cadmium Yellow and Bright Orange. I used Dark Chocolate to distress the edges and define the individual pumpkins and sealed it using three coats of Mod Podge Satin. I glued 3mm dark green rhinestones in place of the pumpkin stems and placed the finished chipboard piece onto the card just below and slightly covering the Silver Rhinestone Swirl.

I then glued natural raffia and pete moss onto seperate pieces of black cardstock and secured them onto the card using hot glue. I used Color Box Mix'd Media Inx-Leather to stain two toothpicks and glued one flower to the end of each. I placed them within the natural raffia to give the effect of flowers growing from straw or hay.

In the flower centers are a white pearl bead or a tan 3mm rhinestone.

Believe Mixed Media

Good morning Blogger Friends!

This mixed media piece was so much fun to create!!!  It's a combination of so many different products and techniques.  First I will begin with the step-by-step instructions.

Prepare the canvas by painting a coat of Gesso over the top and each side.

Dry the canvas with a heat gun.

Lay down the embellishments and a piece of paper where a picture would go. Using a pencil, lightly draw a line around the area where the embellishments will go.  Remove all of the pieces.

You want to have a solid surface directly under the canvas where a stenciled image will be.  Place the canvas on top of a large book.  Lay the stencil on the canvas and take a spatula full of modeling paste and rub over the stencil.  I used a motel room key for the larger stencils.  Dry the images with a heat gun.  Clean the stencils immediately after each use.  It is NOT fun trying to clean stencils with dried modeling paste!

Adhere the lace, drywall tape, cheesecloth, doily, and paper.

Let the fun begin by spritzing and spraying your canvas with color.  On the brick stencils, I spritzed a reddish-bronze color.  If the color is to concentrated, thin it out with a spritz of water.  To blend colors, spritz with water and blend with a paint brush or tap the canvas on the sides to move the color.  To create the glass rings, spritz a mat with color, set a cup in the color then set the cup on the canvas.  Once you have achieved the desired color effects, dry with a heat gun.  I dry brushed white acrylic paint over the high areas to add another dimension.

Adhere embellishments.
