Chalk Art Cards

I recently taught a class on the very popular Chalk Art Technique.  We had so much fun creating these cards and getting all chalky!  Everyone was a little nervous going through the heating but in the end I think they all understand how to create these chalk cards.
 
Here's what we made.
 
I used a few dies to make this fun card including writing desk and torn notebook.  One of my favourite edge dies.  Love to layer!
The only way to get this effect is using the Antiquities Frosted Crystal Embossing Powder.  Clear embossing powder doesn't work.  I tried;)
 
I really love the feather cut with water colour paper.  It has a fantastic texture.
 
I made a sample for my class so you can see the  difference when you over heat the embossing powder.  You can't even tell what the word is!  Heating to a mat finish is the key to success.

For such a detailed stamp all the words really pop!
My last card using the ornate frame die. What a great way to display the sentiment.
 
Can't wait for all the new Tim, Sizzix and Ranger goodies to start heading north.  This time of year is a hard time to create waiting for all the ideas I have with the new stuff coming.

  5. Hi Nicole. I just wanted to take a second to thank you for the very sweet comment you left on my final post for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge as a member of their design team. You are always so supportive and I thank you for that! I think your work is amazing...ALL of it! I am a huge fan and wish you all of the best in your future art journey. These chalkboard cards are awesome! I love how you mixed in some of Tim's on the edge die cuts as well as the pen and ink and ornate frame. So cool! Here's to an even more creative 2014! <3 Candy

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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

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...
