Creativation- Under the Sea

I have been busy the last few weeks on a few Creativation projects.  Sadly this year I am not attending but a couple things I made will be there on display.  I got to play with some new embossing powders from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and these pretty stones from the new Quarry collection.  I went for the obvious...shaker card.

Creativation is about to begin so here's a little look at one of my projects.


I had this idea for a porthole type of window filled with the Quarry Mixed Media Gemstones (releasing Jan 21,2017) stones... almost like sea glass.


There are just a few pretty stones in this collection ;)


I cut the porthole using the Pocket Watch big die and the movers and shapers circle die.  


The Sand and Sea Horse is layered with twisted citron distress spray, Salted Navy and Fractured Ice EP.


The SEA is cut with the Alphanumeric die.  Then a little hardware never hurts with this metal anchor.


The background is Nuance Powder Dyes and the Splatter Stencil.


For a little under the sea greenery I made some cuts with the Garden Greens and Holiday Greens.


If you are at Creativation this weekend stop by Emerald Creek Craft's booth to see the new releases and projects created by there talented Design Team.  Some will even be there teaching some make n takes!

Stay Tuned for more Creativation projects I will be blogging over the coming days.

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…

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 …
