Chalk Art Christmas Cards

  Once I learned how to do the Chalk Art technique I thought how pretty it might be on a card.  Well, 3:15am I woke up with this card all mapped out. Getting inspiration is great however in the middle of the night it can be hard to go back to sleep.  All I want to do his head into my craft room and build.  The Writing Desk die is a great Christmas card in the making.
 
The torn edges edge die works in harmony with the writing desk die.  I used "both" edges.
 
 
I have the old Christmas stamp which is perfect for the this technique and die.
 
 
 I created this eroded metal on the jar using black soot and antique bronze.  I cut mini holly and inked with distress paint pine needles.  After I painted pewter for the pen nib I added a little dab of black soot.  Then everything is coated in clear rock candy paint.  CRACKLE!!!
 
 
A simple piece of cream and stamped with a sentiment from Old Fashion Christmas.

 
Two pieces of 12x12 gives me 6, 4x6 cards.

Seventeen cards down...too many more to go.  I hope you like my writing desk card using the chalk art technique.  I love how these early morning cards worked out!

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 …

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...

Basket of Blooms

May Flowers are this months theme for the Inspiration Team.  I am thrilled the snow has finally melted, the trees have leaves and the bumbles are flying around.  I created a Basket of Blooms For Sale.  Love these flowers!

I cut the Basket die with chipboard and sprayed.  All the Spring Leaves and Pansy cuts are done with watercolor paper.  Coated in Dylusions Shimmer Spray.  HOLY SHIMMERY COLOUR!
Did I mention it's messy!  WOOT WOOT!
I love these colourful blooms agains the dark stained wooden basket.



I hope your May Flowers are coming in and the Bumbles are happy.  Don't forget to check out with the team is up to all month long sharing their May Inspiration.
