Robin's Nest Art Canvas to Holiday Card

 Hello Crafty People!

It's wonderful to be back and creating again. Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
I've created this Holiday Card using a Robin's Nest Art Canvas.
I hope you are inspired to get your craft on!

The complete video is below. 


  • Art Canvas (Mistletoe) and Dew Drops by Robin's Nest 
  • Alcohol Inks and applicator - Ranger Ink
  • Alcohol Marker JG7 - Spectrum Noir
  • 8 1/2 x 11" light green cardstock
  • 5 x 7" red cardstock
  • fabric poinsettia w/ greenery, Gold-tone brad, 8" fabric ribbon, button embellishment, adhesives
INSTRUCTIONS:  *Note: I adhered the canvas to chipboard for stability before beginning. 
  1. Apply Butterscotch and Lettuce alcohol ink to a felt applicator and pounce the background of the entire Art Canvas. 
  2. Color and trace the leaves and stems in dark green alcohol marker (JG7). 
  3. Mat the canvas to the red cardstock.
  4. Using a dry adhesive, attach the fabric ribbon to the matted canvas, wrap ends around and secure on the backside. 
  5. Attach the wrapped, matted canvas to the light green cardstock, folded in half.
  6. Glue the Dew Drops onto the Artsy Canvas over the berries.
  7. Glue the poinsettia and decorative button into place. 
My apologies for the technical difficulties on the "LIVE", I think I figured it out for next time :o)

Thanks again, for stopping by the blog today. I hope you're inspired to get crafty soon!

GRAFIX - Printable films for DCC Blog Hop

  Hello Crafty People!

I haven't done a blog hop in a while, but here it is!

GRAFIX printable clear sheets, matte and glossy! SO FUN! 

My project is an EASY canvas project. I hope you like it and are inspired to get your craft on!

GRAFIX - Computer Grafix Matte or Glossy FilmB
11x14" canvas or canvas board
Spritz inks: Ranger - Lettuce and Cranberry. Memory Mist - Mango Lemonade
Acrylic Paint: Portfolio - Brilliant Blue. Pehonix - Light Blue Violet
Misc: faux leaves, pc and fonts (details below), clear sealant spray, hot glue, dry strip adhesive.


1. Create a word document on your PC with multiple fonts. As they appear with size: Arizona 96pt (The), Broken Glass 150pt (LEAVES), Arizona 80pt (are about to), Agreloy 96pt (show us), Arizona 96 (how),
Brayden Script 96 (beautiful), Arizona 80pt (it is to), Bleeding Cowboy 125pt (Let go). 
2. Follow the product instructions, print on the rough side. 

3. Spritz the backside of the printed fonts with cranberry, lettuce and yellow mango.  Dab any puddles with an absorbant cloth.  Let dry for many hours. Spray with sealant and let dry. 

4. Paint the edges of your canvas with acrylic paints, swipe horizontally and dab to get your desired result. Let dry completely!

5. Adhere the printed GRAFIX to the canvas with a dry adhesive like double sided tape. 
6. Hot glue the faux fabric leaves to the canvas, framing the printed quote.
