Watercolor and Butterflies

This month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is sharing the new arrival of Eileen's Heartfelt Collection releasing in April.  I made a simple "messy" card featuring the new Heartfelt Birds and Butterflies Thinlit 6 pack die cut in felt.  

This is a quick easy card you can make in a hurry if needed.


This is a simple watercolor card, quick messy and fun!  A few die cuts, a little embossing and inking.


After the inking mess and die cuts a little dimension never hurts to the Stitched Oval.  I created a little peek with the Wildflowers cut out.


A simple card... with butterflies and wildflowers.


 The felt layered butterfly is a perfect spring card.


The Nuance Powders are soft and subtle for the background and embossed areas.


The great thing using a negative cut for the card means I have the wildflower to use.  Here it's inked with Nuance Powders and layered inside with a Handwritten Thanks die cut.


Embossing is a quick way to add dimension as we all know.  Why not add some colour.


Be sure to check out the new arrival of Eileen's Heartfelt Collection releasing in April and all the awesome release creations from the inspiration team!

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…
