Traveling Dandy

Welcome to another Sunday, grab some coffee while you enjoy my post!

Do you all remember my Mad Scientist….well this little canvas which I’ve named the Traveling Dandy is the second in this series of canvases feature Tim Holtz stamps!

I clearly read a lot of historical fiction, and I just love the term ‘dandy’ so I couldn’t resist calling this smartly dressed man a ‘dandy’! LOL

He’s on his first trip to New York, excited to see the sites, but his train is late!  Ok yes sometimes I like to make  up stories for my work!

I chose to keep the background the same colours I used on the Mad Scientist canvas, making this a bit of a series.  Oh yes there will be a couple more!

I used Tim Holtz Mini Glob & Cityscape Skyline dies, which again I covered with Seth Apter Baked Texture  &  Baked Velvet embossing powders!  The Cityscape Skyline dies were covered with Deep Sea Baked Texture, while the globe was covered with Lime Baked Velvet, with a bit of Ancient Amber sprinkled on.

Once again I used Distress Inks to water colour this dandy fellow!!!  On the background I also used a Tim Holtz stencil and some of his Grit Paste to make it look like the sun was setting over the city skyline!

While you’re enjoying this traveler, I’ll be doing some traveling of my own!

Thank you for joining me again today!  I’ll see you in a couple weeks!

p.s. this was another unfinished project…two down more to go!

Day 6 of the #12daysofholidaygiftwrap…

Hello friends!

We’re back today with yet another gift bag for your holiday gift wrap inspiration!

This bag is a full lunch bag size and it was created after I made my own snowflake stencil.  There are several snowflake stencils available (two different ones in the Love is in the Details store) but I didn’t have them on hand so I plugged in my Silhouette electronic cutter and made my own.

I purchased one cut file (for .99 cents) with 6 different snowflake cut files included and then I was able to manipulate them by sizes and angles and to arrange them on a full 12″ sheet of paper for cutting.

Then I daubed Versamark Ink through all the snowflake holes and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

I used another EK Success edge punch to create the scalloped top on the bag, folded it over and closed it up with some matching washi tape.  I wrapped white ribbon around the whole bag and tied that up with a blue tag adorned with some random bits that were laying on my table, including a glitter paper snowflake, a chipboard photo frame, a die cut heart and a label that I stamped with a Happy Winter sentiment.

All the supplies used are pictured below.

To recap the last 6 days of gift wrap…. we’ve stamped, colored, stenciled, and heat embossed a variety of designs onto brown paper bags of different sizes.  Scroll back on the blog to see each one individually featured along with the supplies and techniques used.
