Autumn's Harvest


Now that I'm getting back into my craft room and getting messy I have been wanting to make a thank you note.  We spent some time on my SIL's family farm this summer.  I wanted to send a Thank You note along with some Apple Butter I canned a few weeks ago.  This is a perfect opportunity to create for the Compendium of Curiosities 3  Challanege  #12, Distress Photo Tinting.  I have missed playing!

 I picked up the Found Relatives- Occasions cards.  Using a #10 Tag is big enough for all my new die cuts and cards.


I used my Distress Markers, spun sugar and warn lipstick for the girl and peeled paint for the boys buttons.  I also inked the baskets and fruit.


The used paint for the bow and tattered curvy banners with the #hashtag stamp set, "#thankyou"


I stamped the background, thankful silhouettes with clear emboss and then inked.  I cut this tattered leaf with packaging plastic then used alcohol inks for colour.


I love the new Sizzix Pumpkin Pieces.  The Distress Glitter is a given in rusty hinge,  I have some Autumn Gatherings cuts done so I added them to the pumpkin with some jute string I curled.


I have been dying to get the new Sizzix Layered Leaf since I love fall!  This leaf is stunning and looks so real!



I layered the leaves under the pumpkin.  I also cut a couple with Klassine.


I tucked my Thank You tag in my maple tree.  It's hard to tell the real leaves from the ones I made.  


Thanks for checking out my Autumn Harvest Thank You.  As always, thank you so much for all you're lovely comments on my last post.

  9. Just gorgeous. I love your photo and I get the sense these two have just jumped into a great pile of leaves on your tag. Delightful mix of paper medium for the leaves, too. Very cool!

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
