Hope you are all well on this lovely Tuesday morning, it looks a chilly but lovely day outside.
I am going to play this week with all things ranger and Tim Holtz, I am a great fan of these products – I love them all.
I have gathered a few items and hopefully later today I am going to clear the craft desk to gather some thoughts on what I am going to do. I am going to start with the bare clock.
As I get on I will take photos and blog along the way.
What have you all been up to today?
Well today I would like to share with you another Christmas Card! Using my favourite products from Ranger.
Tim Holtz Christmas Stamp Set
Adirondack Inks (Lettuce and Cranberry)
Archival Ink (Black)
8″X8″ Card (White)
Die Cut Circle
Black Gloss Card
1. Place your die cut circle centrally onto a 7″sq piece of ultra smooth card and stamp round with the poinsettia stamp to create a wreath in you desired colour pallet. When you remove the circle you will be able to go in and add more poinsettia to even it up.
2. Using the same Adirondack inks that you have chosen, take a blending tool and distress the middle of the wreath and the outer edges of the card. To get the lines in the middle I randomly added the same colour pallet that I had used to the edge of an acrylic block and stamped into the centre. You could achieve this same effect with a ruler or use a crackle stamp to add depth.
When you are happy with your wreath
3. Stamp the Gentleman and Merry Christmas Stamp in Archival Ink.
4. Matt the finished piece onto 7 1/2″ sq piece of black gloss card, then mount onto your 8″sq card. Finally add some black gems to the centre of the ribbon on the gentleman’s wreath and top left/bottom right to some of the centres on the flowers.
TaDa All Done
If you do have a go at this please send me some photos then we can put them on here. I may do another of these in a different colour pallet and put glossy accents on the Gentleman.
I am not sure where the weekend is rushing of to ! It does not seem like two minutes ago that it was Thursday Coffee and Craft Club at craftrange.com.
Cant believe that X Factor has started again, that only means one thing – it’s a count down to Christmas hehehe, Oh I Love Christmas.
Quick update then I am of deer hunting, with camera !

Hope you have all had a great bank holiday weekend. I am now on the train, travelling to Coventry tomorrow I am attending a workshop with Sir Tim (Mr Tim Holtz himself) I am thrilled to be attending and can’t wait until tomorrow morning when the workshop starts. Dyan Reaveley is also teaching (love Dyan’s work). Here at http://www.craftrange.com we stock a large selection of Ranger products that include Tim’s & Dyan’s products.
Yesterday was productive – Lots planned,all crafting of course, until my husband decided to silo (cut grass and bring it in for the cows winter feed). I love silo time, I drove round on the quad most of the Afternoon handing out cold drinks, it was so hot but I got plenty of breeze with driving up and down.
I enjoyed London last week and will post photos on here later in the week. We have just stopped at Wolverhampton – hope I don’t miss my stop as this train is going to London Euston. Well that’s it for now, I am sure I will have plenty to say after the workshop tomorrow night. I Am leaving you with photos from another walk.
