Rustic Christmas Ornament Tag

First and foremost, merry Christmas! May you and your loved ones rejoice and enjoy each other's company as you celebrate the birth of our saviour Jesus. Since these dates are also about sharing and giving to others, I decided to make a very simple but elegant project that's perfect for Christmas gift bags or wrapped presents. I made an ornament shaped tag, embellished with a big burlap bow stamped with polka dots.



Supplies
Ann Butler's 2″ Stripes. Dots. Hearts Faux Quilting Stamps by Unity
Clearsnap Crafter's Ink in Snow
Colorbox embossing powder in white
Beacon's Premium Tacky Glue
Spellbinders Victoria Accents
Spellbinders Circles Small
Fancy Pants Artist Edition Burlap Bows
Stampin' Up Jewels Basic Rhinestones
Gina K. Designs Gold string
Leather textured cardstock in white and light brown


This an easy tag to make, and the result is great. Personalizing your embellishments definitely makes a difference! To learn how I made it, click here to be directed to the Ann Butler Designs blog where a brief step by step tutorial can be found.

I hope you like this idea! Though all your Christmas presents must be wrapped and ready by now, this tag would work nicely for other occasions too. Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…
