Hammered Metal Bunny

Well, it's almost Easter and I wanted to make something.  I was inspired by this new embossing powder Emerald Creek Crafts Supplies just released... Hammered Metal.  So of course that means Easter!  
Or in this case Hammered Metal Bunny Bags.

I started with a bunch of my dies, movers and shapers, thinlits and magnetic plate.


I cut the bunnies out with mat board then inked with seedless preserves distress spray.  Then I added my Hammered Metal powder.  I added 2 coats of powder.


I really wanted to play with the new Hammered Metal embossing powder.  Look how yummy this is... so thick!!!



I cut the In the Bag bags using Kraft Paper then stamped with the Graph background stamp.  Check out these metal bunnies!


Once the bags are built I inked the edges with ground espresso distress ink.  The handwritten celebrate words are cut with Sizzix Watercolor pattern paper and inked with wilted violet.


I wanted to try my distress crayon seedless preserve on ribbon and see the effect.  I added a strip of colour down the center.  To get it to feather out I used a baby wipe and rubbed.


Check out how cute these are and simple.


By stamping the bag it helps break us the colour and adds a layer.


When you add 2 it gets super thick!  You can see the little pops of seedless preserves coming through.  This little guy looks almost like liquid.


Stuff with Easter treats and tie it off.


Check out Hammered Metal HERE at Emerald Creek.

I hope this quick project gives you some ideas for whipping something fun up.

Lets play...

Frilly and Funkie- Hip to be Square (bright colours)
A Vintage Journey- (Mat Board, purple, metal effect)
Anything But Cute- Crazy for Colour- (purples)
Creative Carte Blanche- Triple Trouble (metal bunny, graph stamp, sentiment)

  5. Aw, these are so cute!! I think you might have gotten a little confused for Creative Carte Blanche - our challenge was corrugated, metal and lace. But these little bunnies are fun anyway. :-)

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 …
