Eiffel Tower in Metal!

The new TH Eiffel Tower die showed up yesterday at my LSS!  And since I teach there... they were nice enough to save me one of everything Tim that came in.  I think I bought most of it!  I am so excited to have this die.  I went to Paris last spring and fell in love! 
 
A little grunge board and oven liner makes up my version of Tim's new die!  Oh and YES you must have the matching embossing folder.  A MUST to emboss and get that texture from the die!

The Fleur de Lis is fantatic in large (I have the smaller ones too) all shiny in gold.  After embossing I used my gold dauber, embossed, layer Versamark, UTEE, heat then sand for this distressed look!


The new mini M&S's postage stamp is coloured with Bard Door stain and adds a great layer with a little punch of red.  I attached the #5 with my mini attacher.


Seriuosly, this "enjoy the journey" from Stacked Artful Word strip die is a must!  For a little subtle shine I painted some Clear Rock Candy.  LOVE THAT SH*T!


I embossed the tag with Distress Paper and the new Eiffel Tower & French Script embossing folder.  GET THIS SET if you end up getting the die!


This is why I started teaching classes...so I could afford to get these when they came out.  Hey, this teacher needs to use the new goodies...right?

Can you tell I'm in love!

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 …
