Art with Heart Challenge; Projects to Love

I am back from my 2 week holiday and couldn't wait to create!  I missed all my crafty things, blogging and blogger peeps!  Here's a little something I whipped up to get me back into my craft room!
 
I know Valentines has passed and the chocolates have been snarfed.  However, the Art with Heart Challenge is all month long.  The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team is sharing their awesome projects with you each week! 
This month the Cookie Box die is looking for a new home.  So I decided to use my Cookie Box die and show you how I used it.
 
 
Did you know you can stack this die!  I cut the mat board 2 times so I could stack.  This die comes with a hinge so you can create this mega Cookie Box.
 
 
 
You can see here I stacked one on top of the other.

 
I had to decide the topper...Festive Gent or... Layered Butterfly!  Decisions...

 
I just got the mini paper rosette die from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and I LOVE IT!  I just had to add some.

 
Ohhh distress glitter how I love thee... In Festive Berries, Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry.  The Festive Gent is in Black Soot distress glitter.

 
 I attached the smaller mini rosette to the front.

 
Hey...who ate the Caramel Kisses!

 
I inked and decorated the inside of the cookie box die.
 
 
I filled the Cookie Box die with Kisses!
 
 
I added some tattered pinecone roses to the inside lid.  Then attached some twine to help with the weight.
 
 
I love all the layers, glitter and mini rosettes!

 
Make sure to enter this months Art with Heart Challenge and you could be the winner!
 
 
 Thanks for stopping by!  I so appreciated all the lovely comments on my posts while I was away.  Welcome to the new stalkers!

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 …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

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...
