Spring on Display

I love this little Tim Holtz Watering Can die.  Then when you add the Eileen Hull Make it 3D die it makes it even more fun!  You can find my project over at Creative Scrapbooker Magazine
Here's a tutorial so you can see how I made it.

Start with your dies and Sizzix Matboard.  This stuff is awesome for the scoreboard dies.  

I cut a bunch of the Jumbo Tattered Pinecones with core paper.  The mat board takes the Ranger Distress Spray Stains really well!  Then I grabbed my Iced Enamels Relique Powder to create an enameled look!


When you add the powders to create a distressed or rubbed off finish.  Simply remove the powder from the edges.  Then heat set.


Then you can ink the edges!  I used the new Ranger Splatter Brush and some Black Soot Paint to splatter over top.  Handy tool!


Now that the watering can is inked, enameled and splattered I added the Make it 3D stripes.  This die makes any of your dies 3D!  Adding more versatility to all your dies.

Now to make flowers.  If you're like me this die freaked me out and I struggled to make the flowers!  Watch Tim's video and you will see with proper prep making these flowers is EASY!  

Throw it all together and you have a pretty counter top spring craft to display.


I used some clear rock candy stickles on the petals for a sugary effect.

The watering can looks worn with the speckles of black.

I love making my dies 3D.

I attached the 5 cent ephemera.


A metal token


 

I hope my wee tutorial inspired some ideas for your next project.  Be creative and think outside of the box!  Happy Crafting!

  4. Love your 3D watering can, and those iced enamels are the cat's meow! Great job on your Pinecone flowers--I fail miserably at this even with the video! And my pinecones look even worse! It must be the nail polish, dear! Cause your's rocks and so do your blooms!

    1. I used to be the same way Sara! I would have the cold sweats whenever I had to make these. So I spent hours making them until I felt I was good to make them. Now I love making them! Here's my post to perfecting these flowers. http://canadiannickelscrapn.blogspot.ca/2014/04/tattered-pinecone-journey.html

  5. This watering can fill of pretty flowers is beautiful and so 3D! Awesome sauce colors and that EP is freakin wow! The little token and tidbits add wonderful texture. Thanks for the tidbit about the flower making, I don't have the die but was considering it.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
