Victorian Carolers in Glitter

The first 5! And lots more to build. I like to keep my Christmas cards pretty basic otherwise things can get really out of hand.  I wasn't sure at first if I liked these Victorian Carolers?  Then I started seeing great stuff being created with them and I've warmed up.
 
I do my cards in 5's.  This way I don't get overwhelmed and creatively it's more fun.  I can't make every one a different card and I don't want to make them all the same.  Sticking to 5 at a time is easy and a couple hours later, I get to make 5 more...different!

 
I cut out the carolers "book" painted the chipboard snowcap then stamped the "Ice Skate" stamp from Old Fashion Christmas.  The text is perfectly small.

 
I painted them in black then cut them again trimming their hats and outfits.  I painted the outfits in peeled paint for the gentleman with matching distress glitter.  The lady is done the same but with festive berries.

 
I inked some cream card stock with evergreen bough and the sentiment is from Old Fashion Christmas.  Love this stamp!

 
These are cut at 4x12, folded and then end up being 4x6.  These Carolers are 5" tall so I needed some height.  Mounted on the Merriment paper with the sentiment from Simple Sayings.


Like I said, pretty easy!  I'm not sure if I "love" them in glitter but I did want something a little different.  And I'm pretty happy!  Onto the next 5!

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...

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…
