Rudolph.

Christmas Card Club time again and it is Mary's turn to set the theme which is Mixed Media. I'm a bit short on time at the moment so I'm just showing the last of the little shaker ornaments I made. I figure they work for mixed media so here goes.

I used a variety of stamps to create my stag wreath. The stag is a freebie magazine one along with the little sprig of holly that I created the circle with but from different magazines. The shaker element is made using small red glass beads. I painted the holly and berries using distress inks.  Glitter glue on the front for the added sparkle.

I used the stags head again for this one. The snowflakes were a magazine freebie and I created the outer edge circle using a peg stamp by Heyda which I kept on turning this way and that as I stamped using a red distress ink pad. Small micro beads used for the shaker element and more glitter glue on the front.


Last one is a small snow scene. the house is a magazine freebie. Flying geese are by Card-io along with the silhouette tree.  I created the background using distress inks picked up on an acrylic block and painted with a small paint brush. The acetate I used for the front of the shaker element is printed with falling snow which I thought suited my little scene. Small micro beads used again  and more glitter glue but silver this time. 

Entering into the following challenge:

These are great. What a clever idea. I like the first one the best, but they are all lovely. Kate x

Definitely fits Mixed Media description for sure! And I love the stag's head used as a shaker element with the festive red beads. The quiet country scene is equally lovely, and great job on all of them. How cool to take the amazing freebies and combine them to create an element as you've done here. Good for you, and glad you could combine this challenge with Rudy Day. (maybe I should too!) TFS & Hugs

Wowzer! A gorgeous selection of shaker ornaments Mrs. A. Barbxx

Pat said...

I think these shaker ornaments are really pretty and a great idea Mrs A. I particularly love that sweet little snowy house. I answered your comment on Di's last blog post as a reply to your comment over there, which was a bit silly as I could just have come here and said it to you personally, but had one or two ideas for the strips off the SU wheels. Perhaps you could use them together to make random background patterns, or use them on strips of card to make striped patterns of various kinds, and I have also seen die cut flower with a different pattern on every petal. Obviously I don't know what the designs are, and perhaps this wouldn't work, but hope this is of some help. x

Craftychris said...

All three of these are absolutely wonderful! Love each design and all the sparkle! Hugs xxx

Karen said...

I really really love these! A tutorial as to how to create them would be more than welcome if you can please. I love making decorations and that but I'm all spent out so if they can be made with recycled goodies would be awesome too Karen xx

Karenladd said...

Your beautiful shaker ornaments inspired me so much that I started saving a few empty ribbon spools to make my own. Then I came to my senses and realized that I would probably never follow through with them, and so I put them in the recycle bin...sigh. I'll settle for admiring your lovely creations and pretend that I made them myself..!

MRS DUCK said...

Hi Mrs A
These will make a wonderful addition to your tree.
Very festive and fab!
