Winter Wishes

Truth be told we are a month into winter and I wish it would stop now.  Another Frilly and Funkie Challenge to play along with, Winter Wishes!  We are in the middle of winter (here anyway) so creating a winter theme project should be easy! 
 
I'm combining a couple of my DT's projects, Frilly and Funkie "Winter Wishes" Challenge and the chipboard cut "Winter" from my other Guest DT Southern Ridge Trading Company, a small Canadian Company with the cutest chipboard/ wood cuts.
 
 
I used my All Occasions card for a great vintage layer.
 

 
A couple of stacked Snowflakes with glitter and a silver jingle.

 
I LOVE the "Winter" chipboard embellishment from Southern Ridge Trading Company!
 

 
Thanks for stopping by.  Make sure to play along with Frilly and Funkie's Winter Wishes Challenge.  I'll be away for a couple of weeks (16 days) with my family.  I'll be posting while I'm away so make sure you don't miss anything.

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…
