Summer Fun with Sizzix

When this months Challenge theme was being chatted about for the Art With Heart Challenge it was suggested I make the Yellow Submarine!  So, I went with it.  This months theme is "Summer Fun with Sizzix"  Create a summery project and include your favorite Sizzix dies.  Or in my case...8 dies in total.  Can you guess them all?
For the foundation of the Yellow Submarine I used the Vintage Trailer XL Score die.


For the top I cut the smallest of the 3D blocks and cubes.  I inked gumdrops with poppyseed alcohol inks for the portholes.


To create some dimension and get more blues and red I used the Correspondence paper and mini rosette die.  A pop of colour with these red stars.


I used Decoart Media Fluids to create a vibrant Submarine.  Along the bottom I cut the Mini Apothecary Bottles omitting the top.  


By folding the mini rosette only half way and adding a star inked with Indigo Blue Alcohol ink I get more blue accents.


The mini Seahorse and tiny starfish is adorable on the top in place of the stacks.  I embossed the seahorse with Wendy Vecchi embossing powder Fern.  I love the enamel look here.


These swirly "ferns" are the Tiny Tattered Floral's before they are rolled.  As soon as I saw these I instantly though ocean. 


I needed a rudder and prop so in it's place another half mini rosette and Tiny Tattered Floral rose.


 A few tattered pinecone rosettes all enclosed in the Halloween Shadows fence.




Well, now there's a different way to look at the Vintage Trailer die!  By combining your dies just think of the things you can create.  So start thinking summer!  Stop by and see what the Inspiration Team has made to inspire.  Join in and share your Summer Fun with Sizzix projects.

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …
