Flutter

The warm winds are here and finally the butterflies are fluttering about.

The Xyron Team is busy this week showing off their Pink and Main projects.  I thought the Inspire Stamp set (linked below) would be great for quick cards and art journaling.  I have a quick tutorial for one of the cards so you have the idea of how I created all 3 cards.  Scroll through and check out the giveaway details at the bottom of this post.

I gathered my dies and paper pack (linked below), did some quick cuts and stamping with the distress oxide inks.   Inking the stitched oval edges with the oxide and popping up to create layers.


Make adhering layers easier with the Create a Sticker (linked below) and Creative Station.  Layer all the pieces together to create this quick card.


DREAM...



INSPIRE...



CREATE... (this is my favourite one)



There's a GIVEAWAY too!  Head over to Xyron Page and leave a comment for a chance to win a $25 Gift Card to Pink and Main and a Xyron Mega Runner!  It's super easy!



My summers are busy and I thought it would be a good work on building up my on hand card collection.  Not to mention trying to keep it simple.   It would have been quicker to make one card.  However, I already had all the paper, dies and inks already there so... why not ;)

Dapper Dad

With Father's Day just around the corner I decided I had better get on it!  Perfect reason to get in my crafty space and get cutting!

The new Tim Holtz Sizzix June release is now available.  I couldn't help but get to layering and stamping... oh and how about a lot of inking!


Seriously...  AMAZING Glitter Cutting pads!  ACK... they come in other awesome glittery colours too!  This is how you get inspired!


I inked up some a scrap of white Super Stock with Oxide Faded Jeans and flicked with water.  It's the easiest way to die cut DAD with the new Alphanumeric Script! 


The Dapper Stamps and paper is uber masculine and perfect!  For the inside I used the new Mixed Media #4 with the bricks.  I inked the distress paper with more faded jeans and then popped the brick cut over top.


Now that's a Dad card... scroll through to see the details.







See... cool EH!




Simply layering paper, die cuts and stamping to create this quick card for Dad!  Click below to see the dies I used and take a closer look.
