SMS Release and an Altered Money Tin

Altered Money Tin
 
Scrappy Moms Stamps is having a double release and I used one of them on this project!  It's my first Altered Tin and oh what fun it was.  My nieces is celebrating her Sweet 16 on Sunday and she asked for what every teen wants...MONEY!  I couldn't just hand her a card and envelope with cash.  I had to make it fun!
 
So I took this metal "Celebrate It" tin and made it into something way cooler.
 
All you need is some spray paint of your choice to change the lid colour.  Paper and ribbon would work too but I opted for paint. 
 
I used my Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die and metal frame.
 
I embossed with copper embossing powder the clock, then distressed with Black Soot Distressing Ink.  The Happy 16 is SMS Hooray for Birthdays set. 

 
Lets check out each fun folds!
 
 
From the Inside Out is perfect to start unfolding this gift!  I sued multiple stamp sets to create each layer along with dies.

 
Studio 49 for the Steampunk Man and light bulb stamped onto clear acetate.  I sealed with hairspray since I don't have Stays On ink.
 
I used Movers and Shapers Mini Jalopy, inked and crackled.  The "h & b" are cut with TH Word Play.

The balloons are tied with some new Halloween Bakers Twine, also from SMS!  The I stamped the "16" from Hooray for Birthdays set.
 
Once unfolding the layers we come to out first stash of cash tucked in this pocket I made. 

 
 "HAPPY BIRTHDAY " is stamped using From the Inside Out and the 16 is a TH stamp.
 
 
The next fold has another goodie.  This time I decorated with stamps from my Grandmother.  She was a stamp collector and my family is honoring me with thousands of stamps to craft with. 
 
 
I tied the bill to the small tag.  Then it's a quick cut to release the bounty.
 
 
My favorite fold!  I made the $20 bill into a dress and tied it to the small Movers and Shapers dress form.  To fan the fan folded bottom I attached using paper clips.  For this fold I used "sewing" embellishments including this pretty pin my GF made for me:)
 
 
 

 
I used From the Inside Out for this Altered Project.  Check out what I make using Pick of the Patch coming next week!
 
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of it or if you have any thoughts to improve on when I make another one;)

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 …

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…

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 …
