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.

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

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...
