Tag Time!
I really wanted to play with all my Spring Dies.  Lot's of pictures for you.
 
Lets scroll...
 
I started with some pattern paper, worn lipstick and antique linen stain.  Then cut my jumbo tattered flower.
Sand your distress paper before you cut it for the leaves.  Makes it easier.
 
Pumice stone and peeled paint stain for the #10 Tag
 
Mist the tag with water.
 
Then heat dry.
Love this Harlequin stencil!  I used peacock feathers distress ink.
Isn't that pretty!
 
 
I was going to stop there.  But then I saw picked raspberry!
And mustard seed with salty ocean!  I love all these brights.
 
Mist with water to create a reaction with the inks.
This is the effect after heating.  STUNNING!
 
Time for some chalking using the #5 tag die.
The Antiquities Frosted Crystal is a must for this technique. 
 
 
On the petal tips I smeared some glossy accents with my finger.
Then sprinkle distress glitter clear rock candy.
 
I knew I would really like Green Gardens die.  I didn't know I would LOVE it!
 
I inked with peeled paint and pine needles paints then inked with vintage photo and crushed olive.
I attached the "leaves" from tattered floral with my tiny attacher.
 
Just look at these lovely spring greenery cuts!  What a fantastic die.  Assemble at will.
I used hot glue to attach everything.  I like my hot glue.
The metal flower center looks amazing on this big flower.
 
Layering the spring greenery cuts makes the tag full!
 
 
I love how the chalk art tag pops with all this colour!
 
Together with the grunge board greens and the spring greenery it all looks amazing.
 
 
It all pulls together nicely and these dies all play together well!  You can't have just one die!
 
Thanks for looking.  Especially with my photo teaser yesterday on Facebook!
I really appreciate all those who are pulling for me to win the
***Sizzix Who Are You Contest.***

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 …
