A Little Bit of Nerdmas Magic

I know it has been a while, crazy crazy year (seriously)

Inspired by the fact a friend bought me some Nerdy Christmas Ornaments the urge to create something purely for the Joy of the season and for me.

And  if I am totally honest because I have not seen one anywhere else before (I mean it may exist really I did do a google image search and search pintrest there is the Actual Tardis police box shape and all but you will see what I mean)

 

Soo I have recently unpacked my box of Off the Page Projects of which (I am a bit of a collector especially of the Kaiser MDF things, mini albums and such are fantastic quick and simple gifts in a time crunch)

I stumbled across a Santa Sleigh, technically this was supposed to be for me to do a Santa Bear, bu ut my Nerdmas ornaments were about to be delivered and I had no tree thus an idea was born.

Sooo I prepped the MDF sleigh with a couple of coats of Prima Heavy Body Gesso

 

Added over with Liquitex basics Primary Blue which turned out super patchy and I was trying to get the colour more tardis’y

 

soo then I added a bit of white to a ceramcoat blue I have hear and two coats later all splotchyness was gone.

After that I tried to add in the white squares without much success sooo I die cut them out of white cardstock and then painted overthem in ceramcoat white

 

added in some Police Public call box ribbon and did the fiddly adding of the gold braid to the edges

 

Think You will agree for a whim that I had no Idea how to accomplish am pretty stoked with the results.
This will certainly be making an Annual Appearance at my House that is for sure.

 

Not sure who will be pulling the Sleigh Next year as I really am hoping to have my act together and ornaments made for my Nerdmas Tree next year.

Game of Thrones Themed Gift

got set

For any Nerdy Crafter’s out there you know how hard finding Nerdy Craft stuff can be, sure Viva Las Vegas Has a Dr Who sheet of Rubber, and superman and wonder woman stamps

Paper smooches and a few of the stamp/die companies have a few dies

and spoonflower is a god send for fabric but it would be nice to see a wider range of nerdy stuff (and not with the price astronomically bumped up)

anyway

This Ornament and stocking are made from Spoonflower fabric and the Card features a Sweet Pea Stamp.

I am really happy with how this Set turned out, in part due to the colouring of the stamp to Look Like Sansa Stark (and yes I am aware she does not have a scar along one eye)

So I am going to be playing a lot of catch up before the new year begins sorry for the blog spam if you get the emails 🙂

Hugs and Merry Christmas
