SMS Challenge Tag


This weeks challenge is to include a heart. Pretty easy!  I created this golden tag using Tim Holtz die Umbrella Man.  For something a little different I cut the die image in felt.  The big dies can cut pretty much anything!

Stamping a ticket then stamping Crazy for You sentiment "Love You, Always"  and attaching the ticket with my TH Tiny Attacher.  I used the scrap hearts from the Martha Stewart Heart border punch and glued them on the red felt umbrella. Then added the gold heart, kinda a heart bag if you will for the Umbrella Man.

I stamped gold tissue with a french script stamp and glued it onto the tag.  I then stamped this cool vintage bike stamp, $1.50 stamp from Michaels overtop.  I topped it off with some red heart ribbon I picked up at the $1 store.  Keeping it pretty and simple.

Are you ready to show off your heart project?  Simply create a crafty project using hearts and click HERE to enter this weeks TTC.  Need more inspiration?  Click HERE to see what the SMS DT has created.

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 …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

The new @wendyvecchi Make Art Blendable Dye Inks from @ranger_ink are insane for blending! 🤯 A post shared by Nicole Wright Designs Inc. 🇨🇦 (@nicolewrightdesigns) on Apr 25, 2018 at 11:09am PDT

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
