Holiday Wall Decor

Hi everyone, I’ve got a home decor post on A Jillian Vance Design Today. As I was unpacking the boxes of ornaments and decking the halls, I found a set of 3 canvases that I had made several years ago. I promptly pulled the project apart and started this one!

Beth Pingry Holiday Wall Decor

I used the Eight Point Star Quilt die, and then die cut several pieces of coordinating papers. I trimmed off the corners away to make a star die cut, and then fit the patterned papers back into the pieces.

A quick and easy way to adhere this is to apply Adhesive Sheets to the back of the patterned paper before die cutting, then lay out the designs, and remove the backing paper before adhering each piece.

You could use blocks of wood for this project too, the canvases I used are about 1.5 inches thick, so they can hang on the wall or stand alone on a shelf or table.

Thanks for coming by today!

Watercolor Christmas Card

Happy Belated Thanksgiving, I hope yours was great. Between having the boys home from school, cooking, cleaning, and having to take down the computer (it normally lives on the dining room table), and then a bit of a family cell phone fiasco on Black Friday, I’m catching up on Friday’s blog post.

This went up on A Jillian Vance Design on Friday. Yellow on a Christmas card? Yes, I know, but it seemed to go much better with the greens than anything else I tried to match it to. The watercolor effect is via Distress Ink.

Majestic Deer Christmas Card

Hello! I’m up on the A Jillian Vance Design Blog today with a Christmas card featuring the Majestic Deer die. It’s a really pretty die cut, with the elegant antlers. I love the silhouette it made against the green cardstock.

Joyeux Noel Gift Bag

Merry Christmas everyone! Today I’m guest posting for A Jillian Vance Design, (they gave me the stamps to use) and I’m so excited to share this little gift bag! While it is a small bag, about 4 x 5″, it has plenty of space to hold good things! It would be perfect for gift cards, jewelry boxes, or candy!

Joyeux Noel gift Bag by Beth PingryI used a pre-cut tag, and stamped the little corner doily from the Daily Doilies Stamp and Die set, heat embossed with silver EP. I love how the intricate detail of the stamp shows when embossed!  I stamped Joyeux Noel, from The Holiday Zipper set. I actually cut the two words apart and aligned them on the acrylic block. The line of glitter is 3D Foam Tape. I tied it to the bag with some ribbon from my stash.

For the bag decor, I stamped, embossed and die cut the largest of the Daily Doilies and then cut it in half and adhered it to the top edge of the bag. If you wanted to seal the bag shut, you could use the complete doily folded over and adhered at the top.

It was quick and easy, yet sparkly and elegant! The only problem now is, I love it so much I don’t want to give it away!

Thanks for coming by today, and have a wonderful holiday!

Season’s Greetings Card

I would start with a hearty Good Morning Sunshine! but I haven’t seen the sun in a few days. That’s OK, hopefully Mother Nature is saving it up for next week’s marathon…yeah, it is next week. But who’s counting (besides me, and I’ve had the big scary date embedded in my head since January!)

Anyhoo, I have a card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today, and I’ll share it here too. Go there to see a few close-ups.

Beth Pingry Seasons Greetings CardI used stamps from A Jillian Vance Design – this is not a guest post, but they sent me so many cool stamps to use, I have not had time to get to them all.

This card was inspired by the workshop I took over the weekend. I don’t take many classes, but did spend the weekend at Craft Fancy with the super awesome Wendy Vecchi! I had the chance to remember some techniques, and then to update those with new ideas and new products. Wow, so inspiring and fun!

So the watercolor paper was inked with Distress Ink and spritzed with water. The swirly tree stamp was heat embossed, and the 3D Foam Star was covered with glitter. I assembled the pieces with 3D Foam Squares. And you know I love photo corners!

Thanks for stopping by today!
