Paper Flowers and Geared Wishes

This is a jammed pack post!  Eileen Hull has her new dies and the team is teaming up Crescent Art Products.  For this project I played with the RENDR paper cutting, inking and stamping the new Flower Pansy die.  It's not only an Inspiration Team Post, but also a Contest Entry and a Birthday Gift.   

This project is full of dies, technique and lots of ink!

I used a template for the mini pizza box.  You can get the template HERE to enter the Where Woman Create Contest.  I cut watercolor paper, die cut the Gearhead and inked.


Spray, ink and distress.  Then I cut a piece of plastic to layer inside the box cover.


I cut a piece of watercolor paper and folded.  Cut 3 1/4x 9 3/4's then score 3 1/4 creating 3 folded space to create.  Ink and stamp for background.  Time for some inky letterpress blocks.


Ink, dry and EMBOSS IT.  I used  burnt copper leaves and hammered metal EP for the letters and Upper Typo "50".


Coat and heat for a thick metallic masculine effect.  This is my forst time using RENDR paper and LOVE IT!  I inked and stamped to create my background for the new Flower Pansy die.  


Flowers can be a masculine!  Stamped with gears and rusty spray tones.  Layer with a Gears 2 and photobooth card.


This is a gift for my husband's birthday.  I decorated the folded insert with a resent photo of us in Venice Italy.   More gears, inked and embossed.


Pull together the embellishments and layer.

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 …

Make Watercoloring Easy with Clearsnap Blends

Ohhhh the Blends are here and I am loving them!  I am super excited to play with Eileen Hull's Clearsnap Colorbox Blends.  This month the Inspiration Team has been sharing their projects and they have been AMAZING!
Follow this easy tutorial for watercoloring with Blends.

I pulled out the watercolor paper grabbed my floral dies heart & soul and pansy.  Grabbed my Blends and Koi stamp.

OH MY GOODNESS... Look at how the Blends work with my Koi stamp.  I randomly applied the Blends and spritz with water then stamp.  I designed this Koi stamp to have a watercolor effect when stamping so perfecto!

The pansy die is cut and ready for Blends.  I popped some colour on my mat, spritz and drag.  I inked the edges a bit then ran my watercolor pen to soften.  The perfect lily pad.  Repeat this step for the heart & soul in hues of blue Blends.

With the Koi dry apply some of the Blends in blue, spritz and use a watercolor pen for this water step.  Randomly apply the shades of blue to cre…

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…
