200 Thank You Cards

So this is what 200 cards look like!
 
Remember that day on Facebook...OK maybe not.
 
So, there was this day I posted a photo of 400 pieces of ribbons and everyone that was there...(maybe 3 people) was "like...OMG" and "YOUR F'N CRAZY" and "WTH is wrong with you".  Ya, something to that effect.  Well, now I can show you what I was making. 
 
Here you have it...200 cards!  OR...
 100 per bin
200 cards scored 
400 pieces of ribbon
400x stamping
600 cut pieces of paper
8 rolls of ATG Tape
AND...
1400 letters and numbers cut and glued, one by one!
 
 You may be telling yourself after reading those STATS, "She's Crazy"! You'd be right!
 
 
  Here are the 400 pieces of Stampin Up Ribbon, Basic Grey Stitch and Misty Blue Scallop.  Or something to that effect?
 
 
I layered the ribbon then taped them on for 5 hours straight.  I had no feeling left in my fingers.
 
 
Here, I bagged each letter and number into it's own bags.  That's 7 bags with 200 cuts in each. 
 
 
Scrappy Moms Stamps just came out with this Many Thanks stamp just in time!  And Many Thanks to SMS for having this AWESOME stamp set!  It was perfect timing:)
 
 
For the bottom portion of the inside of the card I coloured by hand this big stamp from Stampers Anonymous, Booksellers and Publishers.
 
 
Aren't they fabulous together.  I had to hand colour the bottoms stamp since I didn't need the whole thing.  I once had a shiny new Black SU marker:(


All mounted and ready for the letters and numbers!
 
 
My finished card, simply made with a great impact I thought.
 
My husband's company (he works for) is celebrating 10 Years Today!  I made these for the the staff in the Company colours.  They distribute Book and Magazines so you can see how using the Booksellers stamp and this Newsprint SU paper is so fitting.  I kept the card design simple and to the point otherwise I'd still be making them;)
 
So now do you remember that day on Facebook?
 
Oh and just so you know I've added a "PIN IT" button at the top of the post to make it easier for you to "PIN NOW, CRAFT LATER"

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 …

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
