Owl You Need is Love


Owl I had to do was post this card with my Be My Valentine post...but I forgot about it.  When I started my husbands Valentins project this little 3'x 3' card was the first thing I made.  But he quickly became buried under scraps.  Then on the morning of Valentines I remembered he hadn't made it into the first bag my husband had to open.  Oops.  I rushed down to my craft room, iPhone in hand and snapped these off quickly.  After all hubby was heading to the airport at any moment. 

Scrappy Moms Stamps has a brand new set, Owl Occasion.  What was I going to create with all these "cute" sentiments.  It was a bit of a worry until I remembered I had this stamp.  How cute is this sentiment...I'm singing the Beatles now!  I added red jewel hearts to his eyes and tied off a piece of ribbon.  The stamp is coloured in marker to get the red and black.


Ohhhh how I adore the inside.  I stamped just the top of my little Owl as if he is peeking in.  And then stamped again from Owl Occasions "Owl Miss You".  It's like he wants to make sure not to miss a thing.


With the Owl Occasions set you get this cute little Owl stamp.  I I stamped it on the back of the envelope in the red and black again. 


Sorry this never made it into the post it was meant to be in.  I had so many gifts to craft I just forgot about this one.  It's a sweet simple card.  And the inside detail is just the best.

Have a great weekend!

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…
