Birthday Card for My Dad


It's my Daddy's Birthday Today!
 
I had so much fun making this card.  I was able to use a lot of new things I have been wanting to try, stamps, dies and paper!  I just got this awesome pattern paper yesterday from Stampin Up.  It's so masculine and fun. 
 

I have these great 7 Gypsies tickets kicking around.  So I stamped the Vintage Car on it and embossed.  I just love this car!

Just look how awesome my Hooray for Birthdays, Scrappy Moms Stamp fits in this bottle cap.  I stamped the "HB", embossed, and punched with my 1" circle punch.  It adds a great layer.


A little piece of burlap instead of ribbon is very masculine.  Instead of gluing the ticket down I used my Tiny Attacher to staple it down.  Very Guy like!


On the inside I cut the gears die in cork and stamped again from Hooray for Birthdays.


Cutting the gears in grungeboard is great way to accent in a masculine way.  I used Espresso and Black paint daubers to colour the gears then attached again with the tiny attacher.


Wishing my Dad a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

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...
