Jingle all the Way

November has been a very bust month for crafting.  Not that I can show off much yet.  I have left my 12 Tags November to the last moment so I could meet all (some) of my (CHA) deadlines.
I love this foiled look.  It has such a vintage feel.  I wish I could have found some silver foil but gold is what I could make it work!  I was tempted to create a pumpkin Autumn tag since I love all things Autumn.  But, I have been lured by the festive season.

Flipping through my many blueprint stamps I settled on the jingle bell.  The lantern almost won!

Instead of the cork I layered some frosted film and mirrored sheet cutting out Bells with the Alphanumeric thinlit.  Adding the "jingle" over top with distressed core paper.

I stamped wee snowflakes from the new Christmas Magic set.  Then I sprayed tumbled glass and twisted citron.  

Using a small piece of tinsel twine I tied off these Victorian Snowflakes from Emerald Creek Craft Supply to the wee arrow.  

All the embossing and de-embossing is hard to see.  I did the same foil technique on the jingle.

I love the background on this tag from the stamping with distress paint, spraying and the foil.

Sorry I'm so late to the party.  I had every intention to get this banged out earlier!  Oh well... craft happens!!!

Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek.

Check out Tim's blog for the technique and Inspiration Journal for entering their Mission Embossible challenge.

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

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... 

EAT. SLEEP. CRAFT. {repeat}
