  2. It’s a Wrap!

    8th December, 2017 by iGirlZoe

    As there are only 17 sleeps until Christmas, (yes, I’m counting), this is a nice quick and simple way to give your gifts a little personal touch with a gift adornment!

    Using the Sizzix gift tag thinlits die and sidekick, as well as the Stampers Anonymous holiday and stripes stamp set to create the background. I added foil and vintage photo distress ink to the edges and vintage twine to the top. Then decorated…

    ..die cut from the festive berries thinlits set, christmas paper doll, metallic holiday sticker and mercury glass stickles.

    ..die cut from the christmastime village thinlits set and metallic holiday sticker.

    iGirlZoe: It's A Wrap
    ..die cut numbers that came with the Sizzix sidekick (LOVE THESE), christmas remnant rubs and stickles mercury glass.

    iGirlZoe: It's A Wrap
    ..die cut from mini festive greens thinlits set edged with mercury glass stickles, idea-ology bells covered with red pepper alcohol ink and metallic holiday sticker.

    …Okay, I literally couldn’t stop myself from making another gift card holder, decorated in a similar way as the gift adornments and adding holly form the mini festive greens thinlits set and christmas ephemera.

    Thanks so much to Tim Holtz, Mario Rossi and Paula Cheney for inviting me to be a part of this years seasonal team and for all of their hard work, guidance and support. Thanks to all of you for your kind words of encouragement. I will be back on Monday with a recap of all my holiday inspiration series makes. Hope you have a great weekend.

    Cheers

  3. ‘Tis The Season

    20th November, 2017 by iGirlZoe

    Hello again. I’m back with a card I made for the Tim Holtz holiday inspiration series. Throughout November and December Tim will be sharing projects by some of his crafty friends, to provide some inspiration to get you creative during the holiday season. Follow Tim on facebook and instagram and his blog for the recap each Saturday.

    iGirlZoe: Tis the Season
    I wanted to make a card that I could recreate to send out this holiday season. It needed to be quick, easy and relatively light on consumables to make it affordable to send out lots. For me, that’s when stamps and dies come into their own.

    iGirlZoe: Tis the Season
    I began by stamping directly onto an A6 kraft card with the tree stamp from the Stampers Anonymous great outdoors set by Tim Holtz. Stamping in peeled paint distress ink, varying the height to give a more natural tree line.

    iGirlZoe: Tis the Season
    I cut a strip of kraft cardstock to fit the width of the card. Blending candied apple distress ink through the Stampers Anonymous plaid stencil by Tim Hotlz, (one of my favourites from this season). See how here. Using the stamp platform, stamp the merry christmas background stamp along the bottom of the card with vintage photo distress archival ink.

    iGirlZoe: Tis the Season
    Using the new trusty sidekick, die cut the festive greens from classic kraft stock, sand with a sanding grip, blend in vintage photo distress ink and adhere with distress collage medium. Cover idea-ology baubles with red pepper alcohol ink and adhere with collage medium.

    iGirlZoe: Tis the Season
    Stamp the wood slice, stag and “tis the season” stamps onto distress mixed media heavystock, fussy cut and blend in vintage photo distress ink. Mound the wood slice over the festive greens with 3D foam.

    iGirlZoe: Tis the Season
    Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to catch up with all the projects from week 3 for more holiday inspiration. I’ll be back later this week with some pages from the inside of my Tim Holtz inspired December Daily Album.

    Have a great week!
    Cheers
