Angel ATCs

Angels We Have Heard On High 
Flickr Group ATC Swap 2015

  I'm in a crafty group on Flickr, where we share our creative masterpieces and have the occasional swap.     

  I have made several ATC's over the past year, and they are one of my fav things to make!  
  The theme for this swap was Angels, and we had to make 2 for 2. I was in a couple of groups, so I had to make a total of 8 ATC's for 4 ladies. 
  The destination for my ATCs were: Australia, Thailand, B.C. and New Brunswick.

  In no particular order...

  This was a fun swap! I made them all at a weekend crop back in September. You know when all the stars align and your mojo was dead on? Well, that's what happened that weekend! Got them all done ahead of time! Still waiting for a couple of mind to arrive. I will post the one's I received here, when I get them all.

  Thanks for stopping by! Hope you got a lot of great sales today, Black Friday! Hope you got some crafty goodies!

Bird Crazy TU

   A thank you card for a special friend (Hugs and Wishes!). Still in love with the Bird Crazy stamps and matching dies! This fella has a pair of googly eyes!

  Papers used are all from the DCWV collection called Vintage Collector. Sentiment die is Sizzix/TH Thinlits Celebrate collection. Added a feather and some sequins. I used Distress Inks to colour the bird.

  The inside. 

The back.

  I don't think I will ever get tired of the Bird Crazy set! I still have one bird I haven't used yet. 

  Getting caught up on my posts before the Christmas rush. Hope you are getting organized. The big day is not far off!

  Thanks for stopping by!

Coffee Wine Card

   I love coffee, tea and wine! Made this birthday card for Mike's "niece" Shannon.
 I love Tim Holtz blueprint stamps! You either love them or not! I stamped it first on the card and then stamped it again on patterned paper and cut the mug out. Paper piecing is my all time fav technique.
 The paper is from an old collection from KaiserCraft called "Le Chateau".
  Added some raffia, glassine paper and a couple of coffee beans!
  Tucked in at the top is a the definition of "coffee" I tore out of an old dictionary.
  The sentiment stamp is from Riley and Company.

   Wine stamp is from a set from Hot Off The Press called, Smart & Sassy Sayings. The sentiment is something I typed, and then printed off. Again, I tore out the definition of wine from an old dictionary.

The back.

  Hump day is over! Hope you are home relaxing with a nice cuppa coffee, tea, wine, or whatever your favourite beverage is! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Witchy Tag and Halloween Cards

You say Witch like it's a bad thing

 Love making Halloween cards and tags! Didn't get as many done as I wanted this year. 

 The witch stamp is from Stampendous! called "Mirror Mirror", and that's what I stamped her on!

  I used Tim Holtz Mirrored Sheets. I left the film on the glass (by accident!) and then stamped on top using black Stazon Ink. Love the way it turned out, with all the little imperfections! Glad I left the film on!

  The frame is TH Sizzix Ornate Frame die. Cut it out using Grunge paper. The cat is also a TH Sizzix die from the Mini Cat and Raven set.

  Added some sequins, black tulle, lace, and brads. All the paper used is from MME Midnight Magic Halloween. 

  Ticket word stamp is from the Stampers TH Odds and Ends set. A nice big wired black bow to finish it off!

Sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.

Bought a bag of spiders at Dollarama

  You can see my reflection in the mirror. Added some Pewter and Dusty Concord Distress Stickles to frame to give it some crunchiness.

Entering this tag in:

  Here are some cards I made in a class earlier in the month taught by my good friend Melanie.
 The top left card is a shaker card with sequins in it! Loved making these!

 Hope you managed to get some Halloween cards or tags done. I ordered some new Halloween stamps, so I may play with them when they arrive!

Have a good one, and thanks for stopping by!

Chocolate Birthday

"So much chocolate, so little time"

  How true is that! Lol! Made this for Mike's aunt Janette's birthday. We got her a box of chocolates, which included her favourite, ginger chocolates, at a local chocolate shop.

  Bit out of my box with this one. Friends have these cute little Pure Innocence stamps. I love what they do with them, but they never really appealed to me to use. I bought this one at a crafty yard sale, just to use for Janette's card. I think I love them now! Lol! 
 I paper pieced her and the box of chocolates. Stamped the sentiment that came with her on matching paper and cut out the words and popped them up. All papers used are from Prima Garden Fable 6x6 paper pad. Added some ribbon and tulle and a some sequins.

  The inside. The sentiment stamp is from Stampendous! and was a perfect fit for this chocolate themed card!

  Thanks for stopping by! I'm in the middle of a weekend crop. It's in the city, so I can come home at night. It started at 4pm Friday, and ends midnight Sunday. Going back this morning. 9am to midnight tonight. Great fun with fabulous crafty friends!

Party At The Nest!

  This was so much fun to make! Made this canvas for Nancy, who was celebrating a milestone birthday! We've known each other since 1979! 

  For the background: Gelatos, Glimmer Mists, Dylusions sprays, stencils, stamps, drywall tape, sequins, white tulle, and a blue feather. Did some faux stitching around canvas with a fine sharpie.

  The black Punchinella (or sequin waste), top left and bottom right corners, I bought at a local fabric store. It comes in all colours and was 79 cents/m. A little goes a long way! Bought some gold and silver to use on Christmas cards. 

    Gotta love the Bird Crazy stamps and matching dies! The crown is 2 dies from Memory Box, glued together. I stamped the birds on patterned paper, then cut them out with the matching dies, added some Distress Inks around the edges and on top. Stamped them again, and used the specific matching dies (beak, eyes, wings), then layered them. The party hat is from another TH stamp set, cut to size.

  The sentiment stamps are from an Inkadinkado set called "Bird Assortment". I stamped them on vellum with StazOn ink; heat dried to make sure they wouldn't smear, then stuck them down with Mod Podge.

  The checkered swirl stamp at the bottom is from a stamp set from Dylusions/Ranger called "Doodled Circles". It was stamped on tissue paper and also stuck down with Mod Podge. 

  I also spray painted this wooden easel for the canvas to sit on.

  This is the back of the canvas with her birthday greeting! The 2 birds with attitude, are from the same Inkadinkado stamp set, "Bird Assortment".

 The weekend is here! Hope you're getting crafty! Thanks for stopping by! Mutchly appreciated!

Happy Birthday Nance! xo

Thank You Butterfly Card

 Played with a new stamp and die set. Love how it turned out! 

 Used coloured pencils and Gamsol. The body of the butterfly is a separate die. Added some Distress Stickles Vintage Photo to it, to make it crunchy and give it some texture.

  Underneath the butterfly is a piece of tissue paper with script on it, and a strip of drywall tape underneath that! Added some sequins and some Washi Tape on the top and bottom.

  Sentiment is from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous "Simple Sayings" set.

  The butterfly stamp/die set is Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations "Limitations" set.

Wedding Money Card

  I made this money card for Mike's "niece" and fiance. They are getting married Saturday. 
 Papers I used were from the KaiserCraft collection, "Rustic Harmony". Love this paper!

  Flower is made with Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and the Tattered Flower Garland die. Applied some Distress Stickles, Tattered Rose and Scattered Straw to the tips to make it crunchy. 
  Black bling in the centre, some tulle underneath. Rose Gold Liquid Pearl along the edge of the card.

    The tag out of the pocket. Tinted the seam binding with Distress Ink Tattered Rose. 

  The back of the tag, with a SU quote from the "Ever After" set. This is where I signed the card from Mike and I.

  The card opened to reveal the pocket with the Tim Holtz Distressed Doily. You would insert the money behind the doily, in the pocket.

The back.

  I made a matching envelope, but I forgot to take a picture of it! This was fun to make!

  Hope you had a wonderful week and were able to get inky! Starting to redo my craft room, so I may not be getting inky as much as I would like! 

  The weekend is just around the bend! Have a great one!
