Till Death Do Us Part

A Wedding card...not too creepy?  OK maybe a little.  I went to my nieces wedding this past weekend.  It was a gorgeous day for it.  Very unlike Calgary weather.  It's fall and close to Halloween so I thought this would be a fun card to create. 
 
Behind the couple I used texture paste with the Halloween Stencil and my new Distress Spray Stains.

 
The Orante Frame die is fabulous for haunting out my card.  It can be used for any occasion but it always looks amazing for Halloween.   I covered it with black soot distress glitter.
 
 
I used a Found Relative wedding card for this...fitting.  I used my skeleton head rub for rubbing over the grooms head. 

 
I crackled the card.  I was surprised that the card peeled and I love it.  Makes it creepier.
 
 
I added a black tattered pinecone flower. 

 
The tattered pinecone flower pops over the layered leaf and greens.

 
I added a mini clip on the inside of the card.  Here I attached some cash for the bride and groom.  Our Canadian money is coloured so the $100 brown bill was a perfect colour for the card.

 
Don't you just love this font!  I cut the sentiments using the Spooktacular Decorative Strip and glued.  I made my own background paper using a stamp from the Random Quotes set. 
 
 
Thanks for checking out my wedding card.  I sure hope the couple saw the humor in it!  Really, it could have gone either way!

  3. Nicole, I love how you think! I would be happy to receive a wedding card like this, but that's just me! Awesome details on this! I love the rub on idea, and I'm sure it's there for a good reason! I can't believe the peeling happened, but you made the most of it! Looks intentional! Great card and an excellent use of the dies!

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 …
