Love Note

Sharing a little love with my wee note I made quickly.  

I have created a tutorial for you so you can follow along and create your own.  My goal is to try and make more tutorials for you.  I wanted to stamp, ink and play with Fallen Blossom.  Check out how I made this card.

How about starting with Correspondence paper and yes the Envelop die.  Before cutting the Handwritten Love sentiment I sanded the core paper to achieve that distress look.  I love watercolor paper cards especially stamping my Fallen Blossom stamp.

I stamped the small blossoms then used distress markers bundled sage, spun sugar and worn lipstick.  Then they were trimmed.  


I inked the edges of all 3 blossoms with worn lipstick, then set aside.  I then used my markers to ink up the blossom stamp, click HERE to see.  A little more worn lipstick around the cards edges then some glue on the sentiment.


Before attaching the sentiment I wanted to add a subtle layer with the spun sugar and hearts stencil.  This is really quick and a pretty layer.


Time for those wee blossoms that were set aside.  I trimmed and popped the blossoms up with some 3D Foam squares.  I these popped up! 


I inked the envelope with more distress ink worn lipstick then stamped the front of it with the sentiment from Fallen Blossom, "Remember to make memories..."  I love clear rock candy stickles added to the blossoms.


There you have it!


This card and envelope takes about 20 minutes.  It's a quick stamp, ink and a couple of cuts.


The extra blossom stamps add a perfect layer for dimension.


The heart stencil is a pretty subtle layer.


I love the sentiment on the outside of the envelope die cut.  Usually it's inside the card.


How about a little added touch of the mini heart die stamped with the blossom stamp and inked.


What a fun quick card.


I hope you like my quick little card and coordinating envelope.  I took me longer to write this post then to make it.  I made this card for my honey.  He's been working really hard lately and supporting me with CHA and launching my new stamp line.  So, I kinda like him.

Lets play...

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

To create this 5x5 card cut the pattern paper and white Super Stock Cardstockto layer.Ink the pattern paper with Distress Oxide Ink Black soot.Apply an even coat of Glue n' Seal over the Peace die cut and sprinkle with Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy


Ink the edges of the Sizzix Vintage Tidings with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  Add a touch of shimmer to these Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens cuts.  Apply Glue n' Seal with a paint brush to the tips of each greenery and coat with a dusting of Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy.  Start to build and layer your cuts and embellishments.
