Father's Day Pin Stripe Card

It's a's a Card and it's a Pin Striped Suit! 
A very Masculine card just in time for Father's Day.  The best part, this card has a very Vintage feel.  To achieve this tag turned card you'll need a #10 Tag folded in half.  Cut a piece of black soot distress paper to match the front of the folded tag.  I scored the black paper at 1/4" then sanded to create the pin stripe.  Be sure to line the stripes of the pocket to the stripes of the suit.  The pocket is hand cut and I used the Torn Notebook for the top of the pocket.
Fold the "Lapel" back to expose the "shirt", then simple stamp.  I stamped a compass stamp.

Add some brads and the swivel clip and attach to your clock.  You want that Pocket Watch feel.

I little strip of Film Strip Ribbon pops the pocket and tuck in your clock adhering with a glue dot.  Attach the pocket with the tiny attacher and then add a pen nib.

A simple card just in time for Father's Day.  I adore this Suit Card!  Check out Simon Says Challenge Blog and add your Father's Day project! 
Hoping this inspires your Father's Day crafting.  This one is going to my guy for Father's Day;)

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
