visionsofsugarplums-announce-2016

Hi everyone, and welcome to day three of the 2016 Visions of Sugarplums Holiday Hop! I am so excited to be joining along with this year’s festivities! You should have arrived from Lisa Bzibziak‘s blog, but if you’ve just popped in, you can find the start of the hop at Choux Choux Paper Art.

For my project today, I have made a matching card and tag set featuring some of my favorite winter wonderland creatures from Papertrey Ink. I don’t know about you, but I am just crazy about cute critter images and stamps…. and then throw in some fun little outfits, and I seriously can’t resist. Cutest things ever!

audreypettit-alliscalmset2

I pulled out some of my favorite dies to create both a rectangular and circular frame for the card and tag base, and then filled them with winter scenes. I cut gentle slopes from white cardstock for snowy banks, and tucked mountains and trees into the back drop. And for something different, I used patterned paper, instead of cardstock, for the base of each.

audreypettit-alliscalmset3
All the images were stamped onto watercolor paper, die cut with the matching dies, and then colored using Distress Inks. Lots of icy Stickles glitter glue was then added for some holiday sparkle and shine.

I’ve had so much fun playing along with the holiday hop, and now it’s your turn!

Peace Tag Set with Ranger Ink

Happy Monday, Crafty Friends!

Today I have the great honor of guesting over on the Ranger Ink blog. And since it’s holiday time, and we’re all in need of fun packaging ideas, I have made a sweet and shabby set of tags to share that are sure to brighten up those Christmas boxes and bags.

audreypettit-ranger-peaceholidaytags
These happy tags are filled with lots of my favorite Ranger Distress and Tim Holtz products. For art tags, I like to use a large tag base. But since these were designed to be added to gifts, I started with #5 size manila craft tags from Ranger.

audreypettit-ranger-peaceholidaytags2
Love that these manila tags are heavyweight and sturdy enough to stand up to lots of Distress treatment, because I put them through the works. They’ve been inked and embossed, sanded, painted, and splattered for that aged time-worn finish that I love so well.

audreypettit-ranger-peaceholidaytags3
It never ceases to amaze me, the wonders of Distress when the inks blend and mix together with water. Almost seems like magic.

audreypettit-ranger-peaceholidaytags4
I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for these up on the Ranger Ink blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I only accomplished a little bit on my holiday to-do list, so the pressure is on. Here’s hoping I can knock it out this week!

Visions of Sugarplums Holiday Hop- Day 1

Hi everyone, and welcome to day one of the 2016 Visions of Sugarplums Holiday Hop! I am so excited to be joining along with this year’s festivities! You should have arrived from Lisa Bzibziak‘s blog, but if you’ve just popped in, you can find the start of the hop here at Choux Choux Paper Art.

audreypettit-hellodeeriecard
For my project, I have made a card that mixes and matches lots of my holiday favorites. I am a sucker for all things kraft related… makes me think of those brown paper packages tied up with string that we all dream about at the holidays. So of course I had to add in a few rustic, natural touches with kraft papers. And then I mixed in an eclectic batch of elements to create a sweet winter scene.

audreypettit-hellodeeriecard2
That adorable reindeer and sentiment come from a new-to-me stamp company called Darcie’s Heart & Home.  I stamped the images onto kraft and watercolor paper, and then colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. The patterned papers and trees are from Reverse Confetti. I used a small snowflake punch and cloud border die to create the look of fresh snowfall, all framed within my favorite stitched square dies.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas with Therm O Web

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends!

And happy December! Can you believe we are starting the last month of the year? I am already starting to feel that holiday panic setting in. That worry that I won’t get everything finished in time. Silly, because I always do. But right now, that to-do list is looming large. Anyone else with me on that?

audreypettit-thermoweb-photoplaypaper-merrychristmassetAt least this year, I managed to start my Christmas cards early, which is pretty unheard of for me. Today I’m sharing a holiday gift set I made quite some time ago for Therm O Web, featuring my favorite chippy shabby way to use the iCraft Deco Foil sheets.

audreypettit-thermoweb-photoplaypaper-merrychristmasset2As you all know by now, I love the distressed finish you get from applying the foil with the liquid glue. I added shiny red foil to the frame and label on my card and pillow box, and then embellished Santa’s suit with foil, too. Because we all know the holidays are about that bling.

audreypettit-thermoweb-photoplaypaper-merrychristmasset3
I die cut double-sided adhesive foam for the December 25th greeting for a more uniform foil coverage. And to dress up my gift set I pulled out lots of old favorites. Dies from Papertrey Ink and My Creative Time. A favorite old holiday Tim Holtz stamp and die set. Paper from Photo Play Paper’s debut release.

audreypettit-thermoweb-photoplaypaper-merrychristmasset4
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! My goal is to finish decorating my tree, and maybe get some shopping done. And I’m looking forward to Choux Choux Paper Art’s annual Visions of Sugar Plums blog hop, starting Sunday.

Easy Holiday Gifts with Therm O Web

Hi Crafty Friends!

Here we are at the last day of November already! Can you believe how quickly the time is going? If you’re like me,  then I’m sure many of you are looking for quick and easy holiday gift giving ideas right about now… and we’ve got lots of great ones for you this month on the Therm O Web blog. Today I have a super easy sweet treat idea to share with you.

audreypettit-thermoweb-sweetseasonsgreetingscocoajar
I know everyone loves sweets at the holidays. And what sweeter, and easier, last minute gift idea than a simple hot chocolate mix packaged with love?

audreypettit-thermoweb-sweetseasonsgreetingscocoajar2
Jar gift ideas are so fun and easy, and there are so many different things that you can fill them with. I went with a simple hot cocoa mix, topped with white chocolate chips and crushed peppermint candies. Once you fill the jar, then all you need is a bit of ribbon, and a festive tag. Super easy.

audreypettit-thermoweb-sweetseasonsgreetingscocoajar3
I pulled out some well-loved older favorites for the tag…. Papertrey Ink’s Gingerbread Lane stamp set and Tag Sale #4 die. And of course my tag is dressed up with bright red deco foil for a bit of holiday shine. I’ve got the full tutorial for adding foil to your paper projects up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
And looking forward to this weekend…

Beary Christmas

Hello Crafty Friends! Happy Monday!
Hope all of you in the States had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

Today I have a card to share that I made for the current Sketch For You To Try at Reverse Confetti.

42_nov2016

I’m so excited to be playing along with a current sketch this time! Here’s my card featuring the adorable Bearing Gifts stamp and die sets.

audreypettit-rc-bearychristmascard
Seriously, who can resist that silly bear? And check out his snazzy car. That two-toned beauty is definitely the kind of car I’d be driving, if I were a bear delivering packages!

audreypettit-rc-bearychristmascard2
I hand-drew a road onto the bottom of my circle cut, and then added images from the stamp set to complete my scene. The trees, bear and car were colored with Zig Clean Color Markers and then die cut with the matching Confetti Cuts. I popped some of the images up with foam and left some flat, for more of a 3D look.

audreypettit-rc-bearychristmascard3
I used Warm Heart Reverse Confetti papers for the background, and pulled the colors from them for the packages and car. I added white dots to the presents, and coated them and the headlights with Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. The sentiment, from the set, was stamped onto a small banner strip, and place below.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope your week is off to a great start!
