A Little Wine Will Do ~ HAPPY HOLIDAYS~

Hey peeps.  Back with a tutorial using some amazing products from Ann Butler Designs.  The time has come for me to kick back and relax.  The festivies are about to begin.  So let's get this tag started.

I started with a blank tag and watercolored it using some Ann Butler sunshine craft ink.  Next I stamped the monogram D from the Ann Butler EZ De's Flourishes 2" ABC stamp set with Colorbox Bark in.  BTW...if you don't have this stamp set in your collection.  Hurry up and get it since it's 75% off before they are all gone.  Oh I love how this tag came out.  I used some ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to make my bow.  A beautiful monogram tag just for me some of my holiday guests.  I preferred not to do my tag in the traditional holiday colors.  I need my wine bottle tags to have a spot of their own.

Well, gotta run peeps!  I have some wine to drink.  I mean tags to make! ;-)

Hugs and love~

Hey Rudolph~ House of Cards DT Call

Hey peeps.  I hope everyone is doing well this wonderful Sunday.  I've finished with most of my holiday cards.  Now I'm just making the ones for my hubby and kids.  I found out that House of Cards was having a DT call so I said I decided to knock two projects out at once.  Gotta do that sometimes when you are in crunch mode.  LOL

Here is the inspiration piece from House of Cards.  This is such a lovely pic.  Really wish my house would look at festive all year long.  LOL I have to say I'm partial to this color combo since my family room is done in the same color scheme.

Here is my card using the above photo for inspiration.

I finally broke down and downloaded a flying reindeer to my Silhouette.  This Echo Park image was 1/2 price last week.  Now I'm wondering why I didn't do this when I first started making cards.  LOL  So super easy to make multiple cards in a snap.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Big Holiday Wishes stamp set.  I used the SSS Falling Snow stencil along with some embossing paste to make the snow.  I added some moonshine sequin onto my card as well.  I mean you need a touch of sparkle to every holiday card. ;-) To finish up my card I used some silver metallic string.

Well, wish me luck peeps.  I gotta run.  Still have to make a Christmas tree out of little boxes for some gift to my hubby.  I'll catch you guys back here soon!

Hugs and love~

Wine A Little - Ann Butler Designs and ETI Blog Hop

Hey peeps.  Are you getting ready for the holidays?  I'm ready for good company, good food and a good glass of wine.  Speaking of good company Ann Butler Designs has teamed up with Environmental Technology Inc. (ETI) for a festive blog hop.  Check out this fabulous candy.  Wow..that's a ton of fun right there.  You should of gotten to my blog by way of Cindi.  If not, head on back to the beginning at the Ann Butler Designs blog so you don't miss a thing.

Let me show you a project I made for the hop.  Here are the products I used for my project.  First you will use Easy Cast resin referring to the directions in the box.  The instructions are very clear in order to achieve success with this product.

Next I added some of the Ann Butler's Iridescent.  Make sure you blend in the gorgeous paint well.  You don't want to see any streaks.

I sprinkled in a little bit of glitter into each of the molds before I poured in my resin.  Oh these charms are going to be sooo pretty!

Once I pop my pretty resin charms out of the molds I like to add a clear shiny coat using Envirotex Spray on top.  It just makes them shine a little bit more.  Then I thread through my charm hoops and add a few other beads.

And voila....fabulously glittered resin wine charms.  I made about 12 charms so each of my guests will be able to drink find their wine glass.  Don't cha just love these charms? anything with glitter is awesome! ;-)

Happy Holidays - The Oriental Trading Company Way

Hey peeps.  I'm back with another holiday card.  I know you're hearing that a LOT from me lately.  I just can't seem to stop.  LOL  I'll be attending some holiday parties this year and I want to give the hosts a nice holiday card.

I loved the scrapbook paper packs from the Oriental Trading company.  Their Nostalgic Christmas Scrapbook paper kit is perfect for making your holiday and new year cards or craft creations.  I used the stickers from the paper pack to make my sentiment.  Then I used a border piece to finish off the bottom of my card.  Fabulous!  Now to put together a little present and I'll ready for the party.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

7 Kids College Fund
The Crafter's Cafe
Fab N Funky
Word Art Wednesday
