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.

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 …
