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.

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
