Dear Santa Divided Box - Tim Holz Idea-ology Christmas release

Hello friends! I'm so excited to finally share one of my favorite makes from the new Tim Holtz Idea-ology Holiday release. Such an amazing release so you can create festive projects for the holiday season. If you missed the Facebook Live you can see all the details on Tim's blog. 

Here is my Dear Santa Divided Box. 
My sweet granddaughter Clara choose the Dear Santa charm,  

Loving the new colored lights on my tree. And do you see the Cathedral Windows with a vellum snow scene out the window. 

Santa is delivering presents to the little girl at this house. How does Santa look so great after coming down the chimney? He's from the Snippets Ephemera Pack. 

The Tiny Snow Globe looks like a little vintage snow globe. I added a few Remnants Rubs and then splattered it with some white paint so it looks like its snowing inside. 

The big half tree is adorned with Antiqued Gems. I love the sparkle and you could even alcohol ink them for colored ornaments. 

Noel has a few Remnant Rub words rubbed on them and the candy vellum scene back lite with the Tiny Lights. The top is adorned with the new Velvet ribbon which ties in a bows so nice and the Little Dear Santa Token that Clara choose for my project. 

Stay tune! I'll be doing some mini tutorials on some of the special techniques I used on this project. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
I hope you are inspired to make something for the holidays!

Wobbler Cat - Tim Holtz HaLLoWeeN Snarky Cat

Hello friends! Everyone loves a little Snarky Cat, right! The new Tim Holtz Snarky Cat Halloween set from Stampers Anonymous is perfect for those Halloween cards you need to make. And adding the Wobbler action on the cat makes him do a little shake shake, makes everyone smile. 

He looks like he just got in trouble for getting into the candy stash. Haha!

Stamp your favorite Snarky Cat, pumpkin and witches hat with Black Soot Archival Ink. 

Cut out all the stamp images and cut off the tail, don't worry we'll re-attach it later. 

Color the images with Distress ink and a waterbrush.  I think the new Crackling Campfire Distress Ink would be great for that pumpkin. when coloring it's so hard to keep the eyes clean so I stamped another set of eyes cut them out and adhered them after I was all done coloring. 

Position the new dot shifter stencil over an old book page and ink with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink on an Ink Blending Tool.

Re position stencil lining up the dot to the engraved image on the stencil and Ink with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. I like to use the Oxide Inks for this, they are a little opaque and I love that. 

Add a few stamped spider webs and of corse some spiders too. I used the Distress Oxide ink in Black Soot for the ink. 

Cut cardstock to mat your background. I used black Metallic Kraftcore and an orange card base. Do a little sanding on the cardstock then ink the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink.

Adhere the background and black piece together then add so random stitching around the edges leaving the loose ends of the thread. Use foam tape to adhere4 the pumpkin. 

Adhere the Witches Hat and the tail to the cat. Now add the cat with the wobbler.

Stamp the message with Wilted Violet and create a little flag and adhere with foam tape. 

Wow wouldn't love this cut cat and the wobbler make its even more fun.
