Deck the Halls!

Hi! The design team at The Funkie Junkie Inspiraton Ave is highlighting Tim Holtz Idea-Ology!  It is time to get festive and we are in the midst of gathering gifts and wrapping them!  I was sorting through my Tim Holtz Idea-Ology and I found the mini clipboard.  What better way to get organized on my gift planning and tags for presents than having a clipboard to hold my tags and list of gifts! 

I knew I wanted to use some of the beautiful backdrop paper to cover the clipboard surfaces. 

 Steps for the clipboard:

  1.  Pick out papers to cover the clipboard.
  2. Remove the clip from the clipboard
  3. Trace the clip board on the papers including the holes for the screws for the clip. 
  4. Cut out the papers and punch holes for the screws. 
  5. Stamp the images onto the paper.  (I traced where the clip was going to be to help determine placement of sentiment and peppermint stick) 
  6. Heat set the images before going onto the next step. 
  7. Ink up a background stamp with versamark. Stamp randomly over the open areas of the background. 
  8. Sprinkle stamped areas with clear embossing powder. 
  9. Brush off any embossing powder on your Santa, Sentiment, Peppermint Stick. 
  10. Heat set the background image. 
  11. Attach the papers to the front and back. 
  12. Paint around the outside of the edges with white acrylic paint. 
  13. Smear some of the paint on the embossed background to pick up the pattern of the stamped image. 
  14. Highlight Santa with white gel pen. 
  15. Put the clip back on the board and accessorize with charms and ribbon. 

To go with the cute clipboard I wanted to start creating a variety of gift tags for various presents.  I used the scraps of backdrop paper and some of my test run images of santa.

I stamped the Santa image to try out the colors on different backdrop papers and just cut them out into a tag shape.
I accented with mummy cloth ribbon dyed to coordinate using the Mica Stain Sprays.

I also found some of the ephemera and bells to add to the tags and pulled sentiments from various Stampers Anonymous holiday sets.

Now I have a lovely organized set of tags and a list of gifts!  There are some great deals happening in the store!  Go check them out!  Also you have to look at all the beautiful vignettes the team created highlighting the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology!
