Cheers to 30

A very quick card using some of my new Sizzix dies!  My husband is celebrating 30 Years in his industry next week.  YAY!  So we went out last night to celebrate and I made a card for him for his team to sign.  No tutorial for this one.  It was so quick to make I didn't even think to grab my phone. 

I made this into a 5"x 5" card so I could fir the "Cheers To" and new Ornate Frame #2.


I cut the new Stencil Numbers die for the 30 and centered into the Ornate Frame #2 .  Inked with Black Soot and Brushed Pewter Distress Paint.  Keeping it Masculine!


The "Cheers To" is actually the Alphanumeric Marquee Thinlits.  Even with a little tape and the Magnetic Platform things can shift.


For the inside I used the Alphanumeric Marquee for the "Years" so you can see the fun holes in each letter.


Some Twisted Citron and Hickory Smoke Inks and the Gears stencil.


A quick spritz of Distress Spray Stains Black Soot, Twisted Citron and Hickory Smoke on watercolor paper.  


When you're in a pinch a couple of dies and inks to create a quick card is all you need!

Cheers to 30 Years!

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
