Tim's April Tags

April Tags and yes I have again more than one.  I needed to try some different stuff to get the same or as close to as I can.  In all I created 3 Tags suing the "stamp" Tim used, dictionary paper and SU printed paper.  What I don't have (most of it) I borrowed and used what I have...but mostly we shared.  We used the crown from the movers and shapers.  A little on the big side but hey, it got the look.  For each crown I made it slightly different. 

The first tag is done the with same stamp Tim uses and lucky my my GF owns it.  The effect when stamping is a more washed and worn look.  This crown has champagne glitter glue.

 This tag has the dictionary paper.  The paper is thinner and when embossed it does OK.  It takes the ink well also.  This crown is coated in Dazzling Diamonds.

My GF and I did buy the metal charms and split the cost. 
  The final tag uses the Stampin Up printed paper.  This thick card stock took the embossing well and made the inks look deeper.  This crown has the little pearls on top. 

All 3 are very similar looking.  It's great to use what you have, share what you don't and try different things you have on hand.

I hope this inspires you to use what you have on hand and borrow what you don't I brought what I could and we shared it all. 

HAPPY EASTER:)

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 …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

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...
