Wall Hanging and Tag by Sue Butler.

Hello Friends,
I am on my last few projects working with the St Nicholas Collection from Kaisercraft, I don't think I could get tired of working with them, they have been easy to mix and match with all manner of elements.

I used Chipboard then covered with the Patterned papers, and I chose these elements to make it up, but you will notice as I progress I did not use all of them.

These Die cuts were cut three times, folded and attached with the Tim Holtz hinge.
I placed the number 25 inside the frame then added glossy accents on top.

I have inked up the leaves with distress inks, dry embossed then sprayed Biscotti perfect pearls mist .

 Making the Bell.
Using DAS Clay, roll out a small piece to your required thickness, I tend to have mine quite thin, but not too thin, you want the stamp to make an impression not cut the Clay. 
This will take 24hours to dry completely, before you can ink it up.

I used my finger (best tool) to gently rub over the Black Archival on the raised areas.
Then I used a thin brush and Blue Acrylic for the body of the Bell, when this was dry I applied stickles. 
From the left over bits of clay I made my berries.

The text was printed on Vellum through the printer.

A little Vintage Tag to finish.

Products used from Scotties.
Spellbinders labels Four

Hope this has inspired you to start your Christmas projects, I will catch up with you all next Monday.
