Ornate Blossoms

I am guest blogger over at Emerald Creek Dares blog today for ANYTHING GOES!  EEK...I love Anything Goes!  Thanks for popping by and checking out my Fallen Blossom Tag.

I used the Ornate Frame die and coated it with Burnt Copper Embossing Powder.  Then I coloured over it with vintage photo distress crayon to fill in any gaps.  To get the tag ready I used gesso over the whole tag.

Once dry I used picked raspberry, twisted citron and vintage photo.  The gesso helps the distress crayons to spread.  Layer the  argyle stencil and a baby wipe.

Rub off the distress crayon through the stencil, edge with ground espresso then get ready to stamp.

I stamped with Archival Jet Black.  Then I stamped the small blossoms onto watercolor paper added a little picked raspberry, spreading it with the baby wipe.

I used the sentiment from Fallen blossom to stamp my ribbon.  Inking with distress paints spun sugar and picked raspberry distress paint. 

The burnt copper ornate frame is perfect.

The small blossoms are popped up and coated in glossy accents.

I love the effect on the background!  Distress Crayons are the best!

 I used picked raspberry and twisted citron distress crayons on the Fearless charm.  Then attached with with the tiny attacher and some jute.

I tucked a tattered pinecone tea rose on the top.  The stamped ribbon is a fun way to add sentiments.

A pretty spring Ornate Blossom tag

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
