Today Is All About You - Watercolour Flowers

  Love these stamp sets and matching dies! TH "Mini Bouquet". I also have his larger set of these flowers, "Flower Garden". The matching dies are a must!

 This is more of an artsy card than I usually make. Background, is Distress Oxides, then I used a couple of stencils. I found in my stash a spray called "Goosebumps" Clear Texture Spray. You can see it in the top left corner. Love the affect! Used 2 TH stencils. 

  Flowers are done with Prima Tropical Watercolours and popped up with thin 3D black foam squares. Added some Stickles to each one.


The inside. Used Prills for the centre of the flower.

The back.

The start of the card.

Bird Crazy Thanks

  I believe this is the only Bird Crazy stamp I had left to get inky!

  Made this pink and white tag card for a co-worker who was my supervisor, but is moving on to another job, still within the company. She made life less stressful for me this past year and half.

  The paper used is all from an old paper pad by Tim Holtz called Vintage Shabby. I have been hoarding it!

  I used the matching dies for this cutie and coloured it with pencils and Gamsol. 

  Sentiment is a TH/Sizzix die. Used a TH stencil with paste and a SU flower punch. 

  Lots of bits and bobs on this; drywall tape, crepe paper, tulle, cheesecloth, Hug Snug ribbon, glitter pink eyelet Some Nuvo clear transparent enamel drops, Stickles on the flower, and a Dew Drop. 

Some closeups:

The inside. I covered up the message.

And the back.

Be Amusing

  Finally got to play with my Distress Oxide Inks! I LOVE them! I love how they are so much easier to tint rayon ribbon too! Great product! Can't wait for the rest of the set!

  This lovely lady is from a Carabelle Studio stamp set called, "Woman and Bird". She is stamped right on the tag, then I stamped her again on card stock. Coloured her skin, hair with pencils. Glued her on the tag. Stamped her crown on card stock; cut out. Stamped her again on card stock. Tinted her dress with chalks; cut out and glued it on. Lots of paper piecing! My fav!

  The sentiment stamp which I stamped on a separate piece of paper then cut out, is from Impression Obsession.

  Acetate hearts from Heidi Swapp. Added some Stickles, here and there and TH Tissue Tape.

Close up.


  The back of the tag. Another sentiment stamp from Impression Obsession. Love this one! Stars are Heidi Swapp.

  Happy long weekend to my US crafty friends! Hope its warm where you are. Still single digits here! I think spring by passed us all together!

Be Prepared...

  Today we're off to a birthday party for a special person. Mike's cousin, Donald, is celebrating his 80th birthday today! 
  He is well liked and respected in his community. A long time boy scout leader and teacher. The event is being held in the community legion.

  My stash was lacking any type of boy scout, teacher stamps, or dies. I found this image and the Canadian Boy Scout book image, on the web. 

  The paper is from TH Dapper collection. I used postage stamp paper as the background, as he also collected postage stamps. 

  Words are TH Typeset Decorative Edge die. A metal button, drywall tape and a pen nib stamped image to compete the front. 

  The inside. Used ruler paper and lined paper with notebook punch, to represent his many years as a teacher. The words I printed off and cut out.

  The back. TH paper to also represent his career as a teacher.

  First card made in my new craft room. Still fine tuning!

  Hope you are having a wonderful long weekend!
