Happy New Year. I hope that 2017 is a year filled with blessings. First ARTplorations challenge for the New Year. I decided to make a calendar I used ARTplorations DELICATE LEAVES stencil

preview-web-stencil-delicate-leaves


with gold texture paint. I used burlap, two different types of lace one cream and one teal and scraps of paper. I printed a personalized calendar using a wordprocessing program. I added important dates for my family. I made a little topper and added a butterfly. I like butterflies because they remind me that life is always changing and not to take life for granted.

I die cut some musical dp. I used the stencil and  I used a watered down white acrylic. I wanted it to look kind of washed out with just a hint of of the honeycomb shapes
I also used  this stamp set.

I added glitter, sequins and ribbon to finish off my Christmas tag.

If you are thinking this tag looks alot like the one I showed yesterday, you are correct. After I made the tag I shared yesterday, I decided to tweak the design and make a second one. I decided the added music notes made it a little bsy. I also thought the snowflakes onn my tag yesterday were really dark, so when I stamped the snowflakes on this tag, I stamped each one first on scrap paper so that they would be less dark. I think it made the stencil part showe up more.

Hot cocoa day for Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Today is Hot Cocoa day on the  Coffee-Lover's Bloghop
I am sharing a tag that I made using STAMPlorations
preview-TheBeesKnees-WinterMug 

STAMPlorations is one of the Super Sponsors of the Bloghop. 
There are additional prizes to be won at the  STAMPlorations Blog.
Come check it out.


I stamped the mug onto a piece of Christmas wrapping paper. I paper pieced the cocoa out of brown cardstock. I put it on a burlap tag. I added little red sequins and a ribbon. Together this tag and a packet of hot cocoa I think makes a cute little quick gift.
