12 Tags of 2013 March

It's already March? 
 
How did that come so fast! I got right to my tag since March is a busy month for me.  OK who's kidding who...every month is a busy one.  I was really liking the Tapered Fringe die (or known in my mind as the grass die) but have no idea why I like it or what I would make with it.   I was excited it was used for this months tag.  I went straight out and picked it up.  Which BTW is the only die for this tag I now own.
 
 
Just had to show you how I got around not having the dies...except the grass one.  I searched and saved the M&S Bunny w/Bow image to my desktop, sized it in WORD then cut!  Once it was cut I used my Bell Jar die instead of the label one.  I could pick up the label die but honestly, I have a billion cuts my Cricut that can do the same.



You can barely tell I only have the grass die (OK, the Tapered Fringe if you prefer).  I don't recall ever seeing 6x6 seasonal up here.  But I did find in my scraps the Easter stuff from last year.  I pieced it together and glued.


The banner die is not one I have but it's on my wish list,  Especially with the Simple Sayings stamp set.  So... a scrap of cream card stock and a wavy cut with my scissors and it's essentially the same.  I love this grass!


You guessed it, no metal flowers!  But I do have some SU Floral Punches and the small flower from my new Tattered Flowers die and a little oven liner.  I just used some Acrylic paint I have.


I placed the banner below.  It was covering the top of the Bell Jar.  It was bugging me.


I made 2 tags. 

I wanted to try the technique Tim used...sorta.  I cut the frame from my Sophisticated cart.  Then I used the M&S butterflies and cut. 


Here they are side by side.


Three Tags down!  I can do this!!!!  Thanks for checking out March!  Ohhh April is going to be dicey!

  1. Very nice job I love the one with the butterflies on it the best. I like you do not have any of the dies but will use my Cameo to recreate some of the tag parts.

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
