Polar Bears Christmas

Polar Bears Believe

I've pulled from several stamp sets for this scene as well as mixing other mediums together. The Background is inkblending of Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick and Chipped Saphhire Distress Ink. The images have been stamped in versafine black onyx and heat embossed with Ranger Clear Embossing powder and the word Believe in Ranger Silver Embossing powder. The Polar Bears are from Recollections, they are colored in with spectrum noir alcohol and watercolor markers; the presents come from Mama Elephant Santa's Sleigh and Simon Says Stamp Bright and Merry; the word Believe is from Gina K Designs Stained Glass Flowers. The Santa and reindeer in the sky is from a photopolymer stamp of unknown origin. The hill the bears sit on is from Gina K's Master Layouts 6. I believe that covers everything in what I used to create this. Thanks for looking!

Happy 60th Birthday Vintage Truck

The last week of November is always a busy time. Not only does the family celebrate Thanksgiving but we also have many birthdays. This year Dedo turned 60 ! To commemorate the big day, Baba tried her crafty hands at creating this Vintage Truck.

This Vintage truck was made to pull double duty. It was gifted as a Happy 60th Birthday Display. However the number blocks are actually for Displaying the Date of the month!  How cute is that!

Originating as an SVG file from Silhouette America that Baba was able to modify to make her own. The files were cut using the Cameo 4 and Cricut Maker. Bearly Art Glue is the major adhesive on this project and hot glue was used to attach the axles and body to frame.

This truck measures 12 inches long and six inches tall. Complete with a bench seat, steering wheel and vintage style dash. This truck was created with heavy cardstock for the body, recycled cardboard for the frame. Glitter cardstock was used for chrome accents and balloons, heat sequins for taillights and Glossy Accents on glitter paper for headlights. 

The beautiful wreath colored with Tim Holtz Mica Distress Crayons hangs on the grill. The wreath is Baba's favorite thing on this piece as it was her shining breakthrough using the new distress crayons.
