Trio of Color

Welcome, Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge is new this week with a great theme.  We want to see how you combine a color 3 ways!  This can be done with paper, dies, inks, embellishments...the possibilities are endless.
I used my Custom Blend ink pads for my trio of color.  Then I added some paper and ribbon for more color.  


I went straight for my Bird Silhouette die.  I love the gradient look of the custom blend ink pad.


I am so addicted to these Tiny Tattered Florals.  There is soooo much you can create with these.  Do you have yours yet? 


I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the inked up bird.  I mean...it's a pretty good size.  Then I thought to just stamp this awesome number stamp from the Perspective set.  I just LOVE IT!


The Handwritten Thinlits are my favorite.  I love sentiments and these take the cake.  This "Moments" in Core paper from the Journey set is  perfect.


Aren't these wee tracks the cutest stencil.  A perfect way to add a layer of texture.


Another element of color is the Scribbles and Splat die.  I do love to layer and these dies make it possible.


We hope you share with us your "trio of color" for a chance to win a $50 spending spree.

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 …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.

Gifts made Easy

I love this little box that perfectly stores gift cards.  Eileen Hull does weekly Facebook Live videos and she just happened to make one of these! 

EEK... just loving the simplicity of this and I was totally inspired to make one... or a few myself.



It all starts with the Scallop Flap & Flower Box die and some matboard.  I cut some pattern paper and ran it through the Creative Station to make it all easier.

I used the new Ranger Letter It stamp Cheers from the Birthday Stamp set.  Like I said I stamped a few onto a Stitched Oval cut.

I picked up some velcro strips so I could cut the pieces I needed to size.  This way the scalloped flap stays in place.  

CHEERS...

You could add paper on the inside too if you wanted.
