Modern Christmas Tree with a Foiled Background

Mod xmas tree-001-jebersole

Gosh, I love how easy and fast it is to foil the patterns in the Modern Graphics Paper Pack–made for such a luxe “falling snow” background for my little mod tree!  Sometimes it’s just that little bit of glitz that makes the whole thing feel complete. :)

I had to add a little messy nest of metallic thread behind my tree… I have to admit, that has become one of my favorite finishing touches.

This would be such an easy card to mass produce–even tho it’s all “fanci-fied”. LOL!

If you’re curious about what else can be done with these papers, Carolyn Peeler did a delightful preview for the Ellen Hutson YouTube Channel.  You can watch it here or over on YouTube.

Happy Hump Day!

Bear & buddy for Halloween

Bear ware Halloween-001-jebersole


I masked off a hillside on watercolor paper  (free-hand cut the mask) and then blended some Distress Oxide Inks to create a night sky.  Splattered with water and heat set repeatedly until satisfied. :)  I had a scrap of watercolor paper I’d done the same thing with in yellow and orange inks, sitting in my scrapbin, so I punched a circle out of it for a moon. This is why we save ridiculous things like scraps, right?! *insert rolling eyeballs*


Bear Ware Halloween-002-jebersole


All the images were stamped and colored with Copic markers prior to die cutting. I’m always trying to color Bear and have yet to find a color of brown I really like on him–I seem to really like him just all white. Not sure why.  This worked out OK, but I think next time, I’m just gonna leave him white.  *chuckle*

Kitty cracks me.  She looks very… pragmatic about all this Halloween business. LOL!

BTW, I find I’ve been using Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts PICO Clear Embellisher (or their On Point Glue; the bonus of using PICO, however, is that it can also be used as a high gloss epoxy finish) for my sequins of late; I don’t seem to have any nozzle clogging issues!  I know it doesn’t have a matte finish, but at this point, I don’t care–it glues those puppies down and it doesn’t clog.    Besides, if I get sloppy, I just use a little scrap card stock corner as a squeegee to remove any excess.


Happy Hump Day! :)

September Essentials by Ellen Release Hop – 3



feat. Concertina Tags Dies


Concertina tag-01-B-jebersole

Ombré shaker tag! YAAASSSS!!! :)  I brushed NUVO Mousse (Pink Flame / Mother of Pearl) across a tag I die cut from kraft card stock–I don’t typically go for pink at the holidays, but it looked so festive and fun!  Fun having the word “holiday” peeking out from behind, all label-like.  That background paper? Yes, from the Modern Graphics Paper Pack.  It goes with EVERYTHING!!! *giddy*
