Gift season is almost here...

In the spirit of all the crazy people who will be out shopping on Black Friday this week I thought I'd post a card with this cute little Gifts Kiddo.  He's one of the newest kiddos on the block at Stampendous.

The background was stamped with Holiday Giving and embossed with Red Embossing Tinsel.

Dreamweaver Stencils Gifts

 Its still Christmas and Holiday gift time at Dreamweaver Stencils so I created a little corkboard gift.  The Long Stocking was stenciled with Pearlescent Paste and then I added Metallic FX powders and heated it (Molten Magic technique)

Here's a closer look at the stocking:

I also added a small tag using Merry Christmas stencil with Distress ink.  The tag and the old fashioned May Arts bow were added using 3 in 1 adhesive from Beacon.

Dreamweaver Stencils with Tim Holtz Distress Paint

Good morning!  Today is the first Thursday of the month and time for a new challenge at Dreamweaver Stencils.  Its all about Holiday gift giving this month.  AND this week we are partnering with Ranger Ink using Tim Hotlz's Distress Paints.  We are also partnering with Beacon all this month.

Today I upcycled a Tazo Tea tin for a ready made gift box.  I painted the top of the tin with the Distress paint then set that aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the tin.

I pulled out my Gelli plate and brayered some Distress paint across that, laid down some stencils and transfered the monoprint onto sticky back canvas.

The ornament die was cut from Tim Holtz tissue paper that was adhered t mixed media paper using Fast Finish from Beacon then painted.

I added part of the Joyeux Noel stencil on top, stenciled onto painted canvas with Red Label paste.  This was then added to the front of the tin after tying some Tim Holtz Crinkle ribbon around the top of the ornament.
