Cheers to 30

A very quick card using some of my new Sizzix dies!  My husband is celebrating 30 Years in his industry next week.  YAY!  So we went out last night to celebrate and I made a card for him for his team to sign.  No tutorial for this one.  It was so quick to make I didn't even think to grab my phone. 

I made this into a 5"x 5" card so I could fir the "Cheers To" and new Ornate Frame #2.


I cut the new Stencil Numbers die for the 30 and centered into the Ornate Frame #2 .  Inked with Black Soot and Brushed Pewter Distress Paint.  Keeping it Masculine!


The "Cheers To" is actually the Alphanumeric Marquee Thinlits.  Even with a little tape and the Magnetic Platform things can shift.


For the inside I used the Alphanumeric Marquee for the "Years" so you can see the fun holes in each letter.


Some Twisted Citron and Hickory Smoke Inks and the Gears stencil.


A quick spritz of Distress Spray Stains Black Soot, Twisted Citron and Hickory Smoke on watercolor paper.  


When you're in a pinch a couple of dies and inks to create a quick card is all you need!

Cheers to 30 Years!

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…
