SMS Spring Wobbles Tag

This weeks SMS TTC is all about Wobbles.  This is my first time using them.  Is it ok I cut them all up????

I picked up this fun Steampunk stamp set yesterday and it's all about this Steampunk Gentleman!  Also, a spring stamp I versamarked and clear embossed so it would resist the ink.  I pulled out all the colours I used for the tag and distressed and inked away!

This is how I use my inks.  This way I can see the colours and they are all ready to layer!

I stamped the gentleman in Archival black, then stamped and embossed right over him.

I used 2 mini misters, plain water on my fingers and flicked for big water drops.  Then some with a gold simmer.  I then set it with hairspray.

DOMINO'S!!!!  I used a bunny for the Seasonal TH pack, glued, sanded and inked.

I shrunk my gears with the melting pot last week.  Then inked them with some bright alcohol inks.  I also dabbed some on some white flowers. 

Once the altered domino was glued on the tag I layered it in Diamond Glaze.

I wrapped some speckled eggs and flowers together then glued. 

The Wobble is the crystal blue butterfly.  I trimmed the top on the Wobble and stuck on the butterfly.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous!!
    How did you get your gears to shrink so perfectly and flat? My stuff never comes out very good :(

    Thanks for sharing, can always count on you for beautiful work! :)

  3. cool tags. I really love how you have so full of color

  4. Great tag Nicole!
    I agree that bunny does look like he could be from Alice in Wonderland.
    Why am I not surprised that you cut the wobble up, teehee.

  5. Fabulous job! Where did you find the wooden blocks for your distress inks?

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...
