Terrific Tuesday Challenge

Got the Luck of the Irish do ya? 

Well this weeks TTC with Scrappy Moms Stamps is all about St. Patty's Day.  Just create any St. Patricks Day project and link it HERE.

Here's my St. Patricks Day Tag.

You know that thick clear plastic packaging you get when you buy a cartridge or an As Seen on TV product?  I cut that plastic with my TH #8 Tag Die then ran it through my TH December embossing folder.  I kept the Decemeber out and just embossed the calander.  I just picked up the CHIP BLOCK die and thought I would try it.  "LUCKY"

I used some alcohol ink, Meadow over the 17, then went over again with silver glitter glue to get the 17 to pop.  I layered 3 tag cuts, manila, DP and the clear plastic.  I used distress inks on the DP to give it some green, then spritzed with some gold. Then added the plastic embossed tag. 

I have these lg green shamrocks that are a bit too big and shiny.  I found when I was heat setting my twine to get it to curl it melted the shamrock!  LUCKY ME!!!!  Heating it made it smaller, less shiny and burnt some holes for a vintage beat up shamrock.  Ya, I loved how this turned out.

I have the TH Tiny Tags that I ran through my CB then stamped from Mini Messages, "YOU ROCK"  I have the matching clear TH thingy's?  Anyway I just used some glue to stick the tag to this clear charm. 

I'm a little late to post.  However, the challenge just started.  So be sure to load your projects and get inspired by the Scrappy Moms DT. 

GOOD LUCK!

  2. Cool tag! Love the clear plastic overlay with your manipulations, but am wondering if I missed something -- what is DP? (ya, sometimes I need more explanations - I can be dense, just ask Lee)

    Nice effect on the shamrock - as they say, there are no mistakes in art, just creative happenings. :-D

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.

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...
