Eiffel Tower in Metal!

The new TH Eiffel Tower die showed up yesterday at my LSS!  And since I teach there... they were nice enough to save me one of everything Tim that came in.  I think I bought most of it!  I am so excited to have this die.  I went to Paris last spring and fell in love! 
 
A little grunge board and oven liner makes up my version of Tim's new die!  Oh and YES you must have the matching embossing folder.  A MUST to emboss and get that texture from the die!

The Fleur de Lis is fantatic in large (I have the smaller ones too) all shiny in gold.  After embossing I used my gold dauber, embossed, layer Versamark, UTEE, heat then sand for this distressed look!


The new mini M&S's postage stamp is coloured with Bard Door stain and adds a great layer with a little punch of red.  I attached the #5 with my mini attacher.


Seriuosly, this "enjoy the journey" from Stacked Artful Word strip die is a must!  For a little subtle shine I painted some Clear Rock Candy.  LOVE THAT SH*T!


I embossed the tag with Distress Paper and the new Eiffel Tower & French Script embossing folder.  GET THIS SET if you end up getting the die!


This is why I started teaching classes...so I could afford to get these when they came out.  Hey, this teacher needs to use the new goodies...right?

Can you tell I'm in love!

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…
