Geared Up for May's Remix

I barricaded myself in my room for an hour so I could whip off May's Remix.  Hands up if you're having fun creating (and looking at)  these Remix Tags.  Me...ME...!

I went for a masculine Geared Up Remix Tag.  Father's Day is just around the corner and lets face it.  I love to create masculine anything.  


I used the Time Traveler set for my tag.  Layering with one of the Documented stamps.


Oh which stencil to choose?  I was tempted to use lots.  But I ended up with the Gears because I love it!  I cut the Tiny Tattered Florals and inked the tag after the texture paste dried.


I love how the colours turned out.  I used the leftover stain for my ribbon.  Here come the gears!


The resist from the washi is perfect.  I wasn't sure about the keys but I like.


A sticky tab thingy and this lovely sentiment Rub On. I added a scrap of stained ribbon with my tiny attacher.


I used the Tinest of Florals on the Time Travelers Lapel.  There is a teeny leaf too.  Look hard.  It's true... only one little Sizzix die used.  


The texture paste gears all inked are so yummy!  Adding the metal gears is perfectly masculine.


I added this Time Piece Pocket Watch.  Along with another tab thingy and sentiment Rub On.  I added a dollop of glossy accents.


Stamping, inks, texture paste, stenciling and hardware...


Loving the gears and Time Traveler.

  9. Oh, yeah, Nicole, you do DO masculine so well, and this is no exception! I love the use of the keys tissue tape--that being the hardest choice for this month's tag in my opinion. It looks just perfect with the guy stamp and as always, love your gears! And the one wee flower at the lapel--genius!

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 …

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…
