Get Well & SNEAK PEAK!

It was supposed to be a simple Get Well card!  It turned out a little more detailed then I thought it would.  But then I never know how anything I make will turn out in the end.  Also, Scrappy Moms Stamps is releasing 2 new sets.  So here is my sneak peak at the new Mini Messages.

What can I say, I am really into the Umbrella Man die.  Are you getting totally sick of him yet?  But doesn't he fit with the card!  I cut the card stock at 9 1/4" by 8" then scored down the center.  I wanted a tall legal size envelope...or is that a bill size? 


I ran my card through my cuttlebug with Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.  Then I glued on the greyish buttons on the flowers.  I did change all the buttons as I had them blue at first.  As the card took form I needed to make the changes.  Pretty eh?


I also decorated the inside of the card with the coordinating DP from the umbrella.  It's a thick glitter paper.  The wide black ribbon I saved from a Disneyland purchase this past summer.  Don't throw anything away!  I then ran some white card stock through my Tiny Tags die and stamped an Antique Ledger stamp for background.  The "Get Well" sentiment is from the new Mini Messages set. 


I stamped this great vintage stamp in versamark to make a resist for the 3" envelope, something for my tag to tuck in too.  I distressed with TH Pumice Stone and Black Soot...did I get that right?  OK grey and black!  A great spot to tuck a little note.  I finished the tag with the same Disney ribbon and an antique brad.


I punched the inside of the DP with the Martha Stewart Heart border punch.  I saved the hearts for the Umbrella Man.  I like how they trickle.  Then I stamps "Thinking of You" right onto the card...another stamp from Mini Messages.


I kept the card masculine for my intended family member. 

Thanks for popping in.  Do you have a favorite part of the card?  I love the mini envelope and tag.  What a nice treat when it gets opened.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Mixed Media Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
