Pretty in Pink


All month the Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials with the Blends with stunning colours to choose from.  This is the first time I have used them in a variety of ways and they are simple to use.

A new tutorial using Eileen Hull's Blends Inking Tool by Clearsnap.  


I started with cutting the Train Case die and running the Flourish Texture Fade through my Vagabond.  


The Blends Inks have a built in sponge so adding the Flagstone ink is simple to the embossed flourish.  I used watercolor paper for the Pansy Flower die, spritzed and shaped with the Stylus Tool.


All shaped and ready for Wildberry Blends,  Too soften the ink I blended with my watercolor pen.  You can even ink ribbon!  A little on a craft mat, water and drag through.


To create the green stems on the Wildflowers 2 cuts I blended Beach and Sunshine to make green.  Why not see how it inks the gumdrop and some twine while I am at it.


The Heart Flower is so pretty inked and rolled.


Flourish Texture pops with Flagstone Blends on the Train Case.


Aren't the Wildflowers so pretty tied off with inked twine.


Inky gumdrop is perfect.


The inked ribbon looks like it came off the roll this colour.


The texture and colour is all so bright and pretty.


I love this spring case!


Check out the Make it Monthly Technique and link up your card, tag or project.  I hope you find a little spring in your next craft.

Have a crafty day!

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…
