>>>THE GOOD STUFF<<<

Let's get to the fun part and see what Julie, Keren Baker (our October Leading Lady), and The Talent (our supernova creative team) made with the products.

Not only do we have all this awesomeness, but we are gilding the lily by having Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker joining us today as a Special Guest Star!  Kathy is so warm, generous, genuine, sweet and shockingly talented.  We are so thrilled to have showcase her projects today!  Don't forget to play along with her 30 Day Color Challenge going on all this month with plenty of sensational inspiration and giveaways (there may be one from w&w --wink, wink)!

Make sure you visit Kathy's, Keren's and each of The Talent's blogs for more knock-it-out-of-the-park projects and details.  Don't forget to share some love with them too!

Julie


Hello again!  It’s Day 3 and I think I’m still feeling the effects of the marvelous projects from all of our lovely ladies from yesterday’s post.  I’m also loving all of the rainbow projects - rainbow geese, leaf-words, trees and jingle bells.  Gotta love it!  

Today, I have two tags and two cards to share, so let's get started.


Tag 1 - Happy Holidays
jmog_HappyHolidaysTag_oct2015_day3

For my first tag, I cut the new tag die from our newest Essentials: Noelle set.  It is round at the top and banner cut at the bottom.  Using the adorable flower builder set, In Bloom: Hollie’s Festive Florals,  I stamped the small poinsettia, leaf shapes, small flowers and “berries” to accent this tag in shades of green and crimson, and inked green around the edges of the tag too.  I am loving all of the sentiments from Evelin, and this Happy Holidays sentiment is from Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs.  Topped with a bow, this tag is ready to add to any gift.

Tag 2 - Joy

jmog_JoyTag_oct2015_day3


For my second tag, I chose this cute tag from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways, and found that the scallops from the new Mini Scenery: Madison stamp matched up very nicely and made a fun background.  I stamped it in silver, and then added some wink of stella between the double lines.  It is subtle, but looks great in real life.  Stamping and embossing Joy in red (also from Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs) was a simple and elegant choice to complete this tag.  

Card 1 - Merry Wreath
jmog_MerryWreath_oct2015_day3

This card just kept evolving.  It started as a sketch, and after some input from Walter and Davis, it went from red accents to gold and green.  The background panel was created from the Mini Scenery: Madison Creative Screenings using Studio Calico Mr Huey’s sprays in Opaque White and Shine.  The wreath layers from bottom to top are: solid wreath cut from vellum with green copic marker colored on back, detail wreath cut from white cardstock inked in gold pigment and then embossed gold (looks so awesome on that cut out ), and one more detail wreath cut in white.  These are layered together with the pattern slightly offset, glued with Glossy Accents, and then the leaves are gently lifted for dimension.  

I decided to try a bow from the Take A Bow Cutaways cut from vellum, and I think I really like it. Something different, right?  I cut one of the tails in half so I could have them hang below the bow, rather than lay flat behind.  The In A Word: Merry Cutaway sentiment was the perfect way to finish this off - cut from green glitter tape on white cardstock.  Me -> Happy Place!



Card 2 - O Holy Night
jmog_oholynight_oct2015_day3


I am pretty excited about this card because I tried a few things that were out of my comfort zone.  I used the Our Town Digital Files to create the snow slope foreground.  These files are free with purchase of the Our Town stamp set from October 30th - November 13th.  Using my die cutting software, I created a snow slope and placed the house and tree files overlapping the slope and merged the shapes together.  Once cut out, it provided the perfect layout for the card, and all I needed to do was stamp the house and trees.  Although it is very subtle, I used the KISS technique where I inked up the house in grey, and then pressed in on the Mini Scenery: Multigrain wood grain stamp to give the house some texture.  I really like how that turned out.  The trees also have a little hint of Wink of Stella so they can glisten under the night sky.


About this sky - I was super excited when I came up with this idea. I used distress inks to create the blue of the night sky, and then dried the ink very well with my heat tool.  Using some Platinum pigment ink, I sponged over the Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone Creative Screening to create the burst effect for the Christmas Star embossed in silver (also in the Our Town stamp set). This shade of ink was perfect to give a nice shimmer but still allow the blue to show through.  I could see using this same stencil to create a windy day and then add some snow.  The sentiment “O holy night” is from the Let It Snow set, also embossed in silver.  As an alternative, I almost stamped it “silent night” on the outside, and “holy night” on the inside.  


I love the concept of this card, but I’m just not that good at stamping on the pre-cut paper.  I don’t know if it is my glasses, or what, but I can’t get my images centered on the cut outs.  I think I just need to invest in a MISTI, right???  Hee Hee Hee  


Get ready - It’s time to check out our Special Guest Star, Kathy Racoosin, and Keren and our TALENTed ladies of w&w.
