November Tag- Chalk Art 
 
I'm in love!  I had to wait awhile to get my Antiquities Frosted Crystal to make this technique work.  And it was worth the wait!  What a fun technique this is and chalkboard is everywhere.  It really has such a nostalgic look.
 
I made 2 tags  (I couldn't stop chalking) because I wanted to make one with the framelits for the layered technique Tim showed us.  But, I really wanted a pop of colour.  This is where the new Assemblage Snowman was perfect.  I love snowmen!
 
 
I added the enamel tag with some alcohol ink, sail boat blue.  I added the Christmas rubs to the enamel tag.  The stamp set is Old Fashioned Christmas all chalked up.


The Assemblage Snowman is all glittery.  I stained the grungeboard with picket fence and tumbled glass.  Then adding distress glitter to everything. 


I wanted to add another layer of chalking so I cut ribbon flags, stamped and chalked.  I hung them on some tinsel. 


 I made the 2nd tag more like the technique for the November Tag.  I don't have the magnetic plate so I just lined it up.  Then adding the layers with dimensionals.  I also added a little more dimension with the hat, scarf and carrot nose.


Here's my version and Tim's side by side.



 I was really excited for this tag.  I love the nostalgic look of the chalking. This was way too much fun!

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. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
