Jalopy Card

It's a quicky, post and card.  I was asked to make a retirement card.  The card is for a truck driver hence the Jalopy!  The card is a 5x5 to accommodate the Jalopy and my need to layer.  I left the windows in for the Jalopy as it looks more like a delivery truck.
  Love the mini clip and token!  I tore the end of the tag off and layered it behind the main tag.  A great and quick way to layer.
 
I used kraft Glassine for the jalopy and stamped "General Agents for all Periodicals".  He delivers magazines.  I used these gears for tires.  Perfect for a guy card.
I cut a mini tag and stamped a ledger in frayed burlap...like an invoice. Then I stamped "enjoy the journey". I thought it was fitting for the next stage of his life.
Once everyone has signed it I hear there's a great weekend trip to a favourite spa of mine being tucked in here!  Lucky!

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. 

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…
