Dashing through the Snow Holiday Tag #1

I've spent the past month working really hard on bunch of holiday goodies.  And since I know you all are gearing up for some Holiday crafting there's no time like the present to start posting. 
 
This is tag is easily the simplest tag I've made but I really love it.  You can use any inks for the back ground but I used TH Forest Moss, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive.  Blend the inks, splatter some water on the tag and finish off with some gold in the Mini Misters! 
 
I used a whole bunch of dies including the new TH Tree Line die all cut on Grunge Board, but carve up some cereal boxes works too.  I cut the Movers and Shapers Mini Jalopy and mounted the Mini Pine Tree on top.  I tied it on the Jalopy with some twine, a gold star and some white glitter glue for snow. 

 
You know how TH brings out these charms for the holiday's...well...I was too early.  But the everyday charms work too.  I stamped some snowflakes using Stampin Up Whisper White Craft Ink randomly along the top.
 
 
Rock Candy Crackle is generously applied to all my die cuts.  Then along the bottom a Small piece of cotton ball for snow.  This makes it look fluffy and light. 

 
This tag was all because I really wanted to stamp my Tall Trees stamp.  I just love this stamp. 

 
Watch for more Christmas Tags in the coming weeks.  These have all been made for upcoming Christmas Parties.  Every year I make something for the staff where my husband works to giveaway. Click HERE to see last years Gift Giveaway.
 
And watch for next week when I show the whole gift put together for the All Things Altered Winter Blog Hop!

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...
