Vintage Trailer Stencil Mania

It's another Frilly and Funkie Challenge and it's all about stenciling.  I LOVE my stencils and I have about 8 of the new Tim Holtz Stencils heading to me from The Funkie Junkie Boutique!  I use stencils A LOT!  I love how they create layers with ink, paint and embossing paste.  They are great for mixed media or for just a touch of design.
For my stencil inspiration I decided to stencil the new Travel Trailer from Eileen Hull's new Sizzix Vintage Travel Collection.  I love this Vintage 3D Travel Trailer.  By adding some stenciling you can really have a blast making it your own!

To ink my Bug and Trailer I used DecoArts Media Turquoise spray and fluid acrylic paint.  However, I did link to Mermaid Lagoon as a great bold color to use.  I'm combining all my DT Goodies here...


I left a band of white so I could add some bold stenciling.  Using the Treads Stencil and black soot distress paint I added this layer of texture.


More stenciling on the roof of Travel Trailer with brushed pewter.  I used a piece of canvas to create an awning then added the Treads stencil using pumice stone distress paint.  I attached it to a "rug" using the same movers and shapers rectangle shape and the bubbles stencil.


I cut pieces of bamboo skewer to hold the awning in place.  Tucked on either side of the gear wheels  are these pretty tattered pinecone roses.  The cutout from the hitch creates the perfect vintage flare common in these trailers.


I painted this Beetle Bug with the Decoarts media fluid acrylic paint to match the travel trailer.  Then I attached my Idea-Ology numbered enamel tag.  I cut the smallest movers and shapers circle using mirrored sheet for a retro window accent.


All the different stencils create a visual party and really add to any project!



Listed below are a lot of the fun stuff I used including the Mermaid Lagoon as an alternate.  The new Vintage Travel Trailer will be releasing in May!  So, I wanted to get you thinking about this new die since it will be carried in the store!  YAY!!!!!

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 …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
