The Baron

Just a quick note before the tag.  I have updated my blog name to Nicole Wright Designs.  It's still me... but under a new name.  OK onto the fun!

Who's done their August Tag?  So...if you don't have the Thinlit dies Tim used yet...GET THEM!  I am sure creating the background would be way easier.  I did mange though with the Alphanumeric dies but it does take time.  With that said I loved creating this background.  

Meet Sir Baron Beaknfly Esquire.  

Inspired by Count Pekula and Lord Wampyr by two of my favorite bloggers and their amazing August Tags.  I had to get in on the action.  

I love adding the words and inking, smudging with my distress markers.


I went for a bit of a British theme.  A nod to my lovely blogger peeps across the pond.  Using British words like Fortnight, Mate, Esquire and Cheers for my background.


I love the new Crazy Things accessories set to go with my Bird Crazy stamps.  There would be no Sir Baron Beaknfly Esquire without this set.  Just sayin'  I added a tiny tattered floral to his dapper hat!  

I cut the the glasses out, trimmed one side and added it as a monocle then filled with glossy accents.


I coloured my Baron Beaknfly with the new distress marker blueprint sketch, stormy sky and hickory smoke.  Then I used my watercolor pen to blend,  Oh...and this is normal white cardstock called Candlelight.  

Check out the new spot to get your Ranger stuff in Canada...and other goodies.  Emerald Creek Craft Supplies is still building and adding goodies so patients is a must for the moment.


I love the grunge!


I used some slate alcohol ink on the mirrored star and wee clock I had on hand.  


I'm so excited to have my own Baron in the house.  Being inspired by so many creative people is so fun!

I'm always excited to share and support local business.  Check out Emerald Creek Craft Supplies  Online Store and follow them as they grow.  They are on Facebook too.

  3. Ha, ha, ha Nicole, Sir Baron is just such a hoot! I just love the star on his bow tie and the flower on his hat (wish Tim would design a monocle stamp now, it would look perfect....). I also love how you incorporated all those British words, such a clever idea. He is totally brilliant! Cheers for the mention too. Big hugs, Anne xx

  6. Super cute Nicole! Gosh, this one makes me want to get back into tags again. LOL I'm hoping that tomorrow I'll be able to set aside some time to do some inking, painting, getting crafty. I think I might have to pull out my birdies! I do have them already. ;)

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.

Gifts made Easy

I love this little box that perfectly stores gift cards.  Eileen Hull does weekly Facebook Live videos and she just happened to make one of these! 

EEK... just loving the simplicity of this and I was totally inspired to make one... or a few myself.



It all starts with the Scallop Flap & Flower Box die and some matboard.  I cut some pattern paper and ran it through the Creative Station to make it all easier.

I used the new Ranger Letter It stamp Cheers from the Birthday Stamp set.  Like I said I stamped a few onto a Stitched Oval cut.

I picked up some velcro strips so I could cut the pieces I needed to size.  This way the scalloped flap stays in place.  

CHEERS...

You could add paper on the inside too if you wanted.
