Love Note

Sharing a little love with my wee note I made quickly.  

I have created a tutorial for you so you can follow along and create your own.  My goal is to try and make more tutorials for you.  I wanted to stamp, ink and play with Fallen Blossom.  Check out how I made this card.

How about starting with Correspondence paper and yes the Envelop die.  Before cutting the Handwritten Love sentiment I sanded the core paper to achieve that distress look.  I love watercolor paper cards especially stamping my Fallen Blossom stamp.

I stamped the small blossoms then used distress markers bundled sage, spun sugar and worn lipstick.  Then they were trimmed.  


I inked the edges of all 3 blossoms with worn lipstick, then set aside.  I then used my markers to ink up the blossom stamp, click HERE to see.  A little more worn lipstick around the cards edges then some glue on the sentiment.


Before attaching the sentiment I wanted to add a subtle layer with the spun sugar and hearts stencil.  This is really quick and a pretty layer.


Time for those wee blossoms that were set aside.  I trimmed and popped the blossoms up with some 3D Foam squares.  I these popped up! 


I inked the envelope with more distress ink worn lipstick then stamped the front of it with the sentiment from Fallen Blossom, "Remember to make memories..."  I love clear rock candy stickles added to the blossoms.


There you have it!


This card and envelope takes about 20 minutes.  It's a quick stamp, ink and a couple of cuts.


The extra blossom stamps add a perfect layer for dimension.


The heart stencil is a pretty subtle layer.


I love the sentiment on the outside of the envelope die cut.  Usually it's inside the card.


How about a little added touch of the mini heart die stamped with the blossom stamp and inked.


What a fun quick card.


I hope you like my quick little card and coordinating envelope.  I took me longer to write this post then to make it.  I made this card for my honey.  He's been working really hard lately and supporting me with CHA and launching my new stamp line.  So, I kinda like him.

Lets play...

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
