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...

  1. Great minds.... I had the exact same idea in my head for those blossoms...layering them with fussy cut individual blossoms... Needles to say that I looooove this card! Amazing, simply amazing. You are such an inspiration!

  2. Totally gorgeous and beautiful. Hope we get some stamps at an American company, shipping is such a bear and unfair. If you know of any let me know. 😉

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 …

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 …

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…
