Father's Day Pin Stripe Card

It's a Tag...it's a Card and it's a Pin Striped Suit! 
 
A very Masculine card just in time for Father's Day.  The best part, this card has a very Vintage feel.  To achieve this tag turned card you'll need a #10 Tag folded in half.  Cut a piece of black soot distress paper to match the front of the folded tag.  I scored the black paper at 1/4" then sanded to create the pin stripe.  Be sure to line the stripes of the pocket to the stripes of the suit.  The pocket is hand cut and I used the Torn Notebook for the top of the pocket.
 
Fold the "Lapel" back to expose the "shirt", then simple stamp.  I stamped a compass stamp.

 
Add some brads and the swivel clip and attach to your clock.  You want that Pocket Watch feel.

 
I little strip of Film Strip Ribbon pops the pocket and tuck in your clock adhering with a glue dot.  Attach the pocket with the tiny attacher and then add a pen nib.

 
A simple card just in time for Father's Day.  I adore this Suit Card!  Check out Simon Says Challenge Blog and add your Father's Day project! 
 
Hoping this inspires your Father's Day crafting.  This one is going to my guy for Father's Day;)

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 …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
