Coffee Filter Petals

Creating today with Eileen Hull's new flower die Heart and Soul and Crescent Art Product Photo Mat Board.  Perfect for inking, texture pasting and stamping.  I wasn't to sure what I was going to do.  I have never done something like this.  I really had fun!

Photo printed and Photo Mat Board inked and sprayed.


I was watching Eileen's Paper Flower Party on Facebook LIVE and she made her flowers with coffee filters!  So I had to try.


Ink the edges and spray with water.



Some stamping and stenciling

The assembled flower is secured with this cute metal button brad.  Some more random stamping and inking the texture paste.


Just in time for my honey's birthday.  He adores Venice so I wanted to use his favorite photo.


Fluffy delicious flower!  Coffee Filter is now a staple!


I love this Gothic Stencil.  Perfectly ornate for this Venice memory.


Yay for letters!


Random stamping from Documented.


A fun way to capture a memory.


Stop by Eileen's Blog for more team goodies and inspiration!

Cheers to 30

A very quick card using some of my new Sizzix dies!  My husband is celebrating 30 Years in his industry next week.  YAY!  So we went out last night to celebrate and I made a card for him for his team to sign.  No tutorial for this one.  It was so quick to make I didn't even think to grab my phone. 

I made this into a 5"x 5" card so I could fir the "Cheers To" and new Ornate Frame #2.


I cut the new Stencil Numbers die for the 30 and centered into the Ornate Frame #2 .  Inked with Black Soot and Brushed Pewter Distress Paint.  Keeping it Masculine!


The "Cheers To" is actually the Alphanumeric Marquee Thinlits.  Even with a little tape and the Magnetic Platform things can shift.


For the inside I used the Alphanumeric Marquee for the "Years" so you can see the fun holes in each letter.


Some Twisted Citron and Hickory Smoke Inks and the Gears stencil.


A quick spritz of Distress Spray Stains Black Soot, Twisted Citron and Hickory Smoke on watercolor paper.  


When you're in a pinch a couple of dies and inks to create a quick card is all you need!

Cheers to 30 Years!

Paper Flowers and Geared Wishes

This is a jammed pack post!  Eileen Hull has her new dies and the team is teaming up Crescent Art Products.  For this project I played with the RENDR paper cutting, inking and stamping the new Flower Pansy die.  It's not only an Inspiration Team Post, but also a Contest Entry and a Birthday Gift.   

This project is full of dies, technique and lots of ink!

I used a template for the mini pizza box.  You can get the template HERE to enter the Where Woman Create Contest.  I cut watercolor paper, die cut the Gearhead and inked.


Spray, ink and distress.  Then I cut a piece of plastic to layer inside the box cover.


I cut a piece of watercolor paper and folded.  Cut 3 1/4x 9 3/4's then score 3 1/4 creating 3 folded space to create.  Ink and stamp for background.  Time for some inky letterpress blocks.


Ink, dry and EMBOSS IT.  I used  burnt copper leaves and hammered metal EP for the letters and Upper Typo "50".


Coat and heat for a thick metallic masculine effect.  This is my forst time using RENDR paper and LOVE IT!  I inked and stamped to create my background for the new Flower Pansy die.  


Flowers can be a masculine!  Stamped with gears and rusty spray tones.  Layer with a Gears 2 and photobooth card.


This is a gift for my husband's birthday.  I decorated the folded insert with a resent photo of us in Venice Italy.   More gears, inked and embossed.


Pull together the embellishments and layer.
