Wedding Invitation- Decontructed

I went to a wedding on the weekend and that means a card.  UGH...I wish I had taken a photo of the invitation because I deconstructed the card to make my card.  I thought it would be sentimental. 
 
I had my Jalopy all cut on grunge, inked with black and distressed with Walnut Stain ink.  A coat of Rock Candy crackle and this car looks old and leathery! I cut the wedding invitation (the part with all the info) and mounted the car on it.  Although, I should have jotted down the Church address, time and reception.  Oops!
 
 
I ventured out in a snowstorm to look for wee bells but couldn't find any yet.  So I tied 3 red jingle bells to the rear to simulate wedding bells.
 
 
I stamped my TH Ticket stamp then stamped again in red with this borrowed "MR &MRS" Teresa Collins stamp.

 
Cutting up more of the invitation I used my TH Pocket Envelope die cut for the card holder.  Then with the Cargo Stensil die I cut the #10, the day they were married.  Layer some acetate behind the number and then I cut the fold off.  I used my 1"circle punch for the notch.

 
The inside of the card is stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps "So Happy for You" from Mini Messages stamp set.
 
 
All opened up!

 
Friday was a very snowy cold day so it was pretty dark out.  Happily the wedding day was sunny with a fresh blanket of snow...but it was cold!

 
Sometimes taking an invitation and rebuilding it into somthing that is yours can be a fun way to gift back.  Especially, if you want to give something that is sentimental.  After all a gift card is just a gift card.  But making it into the couples wedding invitation makes it pretty special to them.

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…
