Get Well & SNEAK PEAK!

It was supposed to be a simple Get Well card!  It turned out a little more detailed then I thought it would.  But then I never know how anything I make will turn out in the end.  Also, Scrappy Moms Stamps is releasing 2 new sets.  So here is my sneak peak at the new Mini Messages.

What can I say, I am really into the Umbrella Man die.  Are you getting totally sick of him yet?  But doesn't he fit with the card!  I cut the card stock at 9 1/4" by 8" then scored down the center.  I wanted a tall legal size envelope...or is that a bill size? 


I ran my card through my cuttlebug with Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.  Then I glued on the greyish buttons on the flowers.  I did change all the buttons as I had them blue at first.  As the card took form I needed to make the changes.  Pretty eh?


I also decorated the inside of the card with the coordinating DP from the umbrella.  It's a thick glitter paper.  The wide black ribbon I saved from a Disneyland purchase this past summer.  Don't throw anything away!  I then ran some white card stock through my Tiny Tags die and stamped an Antique Ledger stamp for background.  The "Get Well" sentiment is from the new Mini Messages set. 


I stamped this great vintage stamp in versamark to make a resist for the 3" envelope, something for my tag to tuck in too.  I distressed with TH Pumice Stone and Black Soot...did I get that right?  OK grey and black!  A great spot to tuck a little note.  I finished the tag with the same Disney ribbon and an antique brad.


I punched the inside of the DP with the Martha Stewart Heart border punch.  I saved the hearts for the Umbrella Man.  I like how they trickle.  Then I stamps "Thinking of You" right onto the card...another stamp from Mini Messages.


I kept the card masculine for my intended family member. 

Thanks for popping in.  Do you have a favorite part of the card?  I love the mini envelope and tag.  What a nice treat when it gets opened.

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...
