Purrr-fect Canister

I was really wanting to make a metallic looking I did. Using the Eileen Hull Canister die to create this cat treat container is perfect.  

I cut the pieces out for the canister and cut the mini ticket with mat board and this Core' dinations chalk board paper.

I covered the canister cut pieces and coated it with my versamark pad.  Sprinkle the Hammered Metal Embossing Powder, heat and repeat for a thick effect.

Look at how thick it turns out.  I wanted the try stamping the top.  This is NOT a fine detail powder but I am experimenting.  Here's the issue... it's not fine detail so there is no defined stamp image.  Here's whats cool... there's no definition so you have this cool random splattering of metal.  Without a big blob.

I topped it off with some embellishments and a flower.

The chalk paper works pretty well considering my poor writing.

Look how this turned out.

I added the new Paper Flower Party die Heart and Soul to the top along with the glass knob and metal gear.

Attached is the metal button brad with some twisted citron distress crayon to pop.

Fill with treats.

Be sure to pop into Eileen Hull's Blog to see more used with the new release of the Paper Flower Party dies releasing in May!

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...
