Counting Down the 12 Tags of 2015

It's time for a new year of tags and I am ready! I am so ready... I have all 12 folders marked and ready for photo's on my computer!  I was worried I might miss the first tag!  Already...it's the first one.  Not a good way to start off the year.  I've been super busy with projects and posting before I head south for some sun and Disney World!  EEEEEK!!!!  I have less than a week to get all my commitments ready so while I'm away lounging in the Bahama's...yep that too you'll still be getting posts!
 
I went with a "time" theme because I'm seem to be short on time these days! 
 
I cut my weathered clock in half then layered some Southern Ridge Trading Company gears inked with distress paint!

 
I couldn't find the tissue paper so I made my own.  I followed the fun techniques Tim showed.

 
I glittered the "1" and "5" and added the chit chat words.  This was a fun messy way to use these!

 
I attached a mirrored star to the gears.

 
I love this tag...super grungy!

 
I popped in an arrow and a wee clock face for the bow.

 
Are you committing to the 12 Tags? 
 
Time to play...

Liberty

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…
