Distressed Halloween Tag


Look out I am distressing again! 

I can't help it...it's my new passion and I think it's here to stay!  My darling husband and I were invited to our good friends home for some pool and darts Saturday.  We all made some yummy appy's, my husband made salmon skewers and I made pumpkin cheesecake.  I made a Thank You tag to go with the appy's we brought.  Not to mention some of the techniques I learned from crafty BFF!

I distressed the medium sized tag with my inks then stamped the Trick or Treat and Skeleton, both from SU.  After that was dry I ran it though my Tim Holtz Halloween embossing folder.  Then I spritzed gold all over the tag.  I only have the Perfect Pearls (without the fixative) that will smudge off if you don't set it.  So, if you have these use hairspray to set the shimmer.  Then it won't come off.

You can see the embossing here over the skeleton. And I banged out the metal brads with my new hammer!

I tied with MS ribbon and distressed a bat charm with my Ranger Alcohol Inks.

I punched my MS Bat Fence punch then attached with my Tiny Attacher.

I have been recently trying some new stuff.  I was getting a little tired there for a bit.  This tag is a perfect example of all the new things I have been experimenting with.  My Tiny Attacher, the Spritz bottles with the Pearl Ex, hairspray, Alcohol Inks on metal and my newest toy, the distressing hammer.

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
