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!

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...
