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 ;)

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 …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

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...
