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...

  2. Totally gorgeous and beautiful. Hope we get some stamps at an American company, shipping is such a bear and unfair. If you know of any let me know. 😉

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …

A BEVY OF MONSTERS

***WARNING...CUTE ALERT***

The Monsters and Creeps are out and around.  So lock your doors to keep safe and sound.
If you are looking for a great Halloween card that is UNDER 10 MINUTES to build this is it.  I made a variety of these to give you different ideas of creeps you can make.  From start to finish these Halloween cards are a breeze and would be perfect for a class, office and for some friends.  I made these in between making projects...mostly waiting for things to dry!  The googlie eyes are different sizes make them so cute. 
All the cards are stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps Halloween set Bewitched! Mummy

Frankenstein
Candy Corn
Vampire, I love this one!  I didn't distress the white glitter paper.  Then added this red glitter glue to the fangs.
Ghost, I posted this the other day HERE
All my fun cards together
I cut the cards to 5x5.  Then I cut a 4 3/3x 4 3/4 black for the black behind the googlie eyes.  Pick your coloured carstock and rip.  I distressed the torn edges a bit then…
