Skate Ornamnet


These big dies are great for making ornaments.  I have been seeing them all over the place.  I wanted to make something fun and attach it to some homemade bread and just give it away!  And that's what I did.  These skate ornaments were fast to make since I don't have a lot of time!
 
I cut a piece of grungeboard and painted it with picket fence.  Once dried I cut the skates out.  I laced them with some red and white twine I had.  I did a better job this time!


I inked the heel with gathered twigs and the metal with brushed pewter.  I sanded it up a but then threw on some frayed burlap.
 

I attached some tinsel twine to the back with a tiny attacher and then hot glued some more in red.  I stamped the sentiment hoping it would fit and for the most part it did!
 

You can hang them on a tree.  These would be great little gifts to give to your guests on Christmas if you have them for dinner.  If I have time I may do that!
 

In my case I attached them to homemade bread I made this morning.

 
I folded some parchment and wrapped the bread.  I added a piece of this foil garland.  It's on a wire so it twists really nice.  Then I attached the ornament.
 

These can go on the tree, attach to gifts or hang off a wine bottle.  Or even attach to some homemade bread, treats or jar gifts!

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 …

Creating a Background with Sprays and Stamping

The snow is melting and the birds are coming home.  While there may be a couple feet of snow still on the ground a glimpse of spring can be found in this refreshing card.  A quick look how to create your own background.

Inking  the leaf border stamp and filling up the first layer is quick.  I sprayed the second layer with dylusions sprays and used a sponge to ink through the matching stencil.

Apply ink again to the large leaf border and stamp right over top of the stencil to create dimension.  I coloured the butterflies with distress markers and wow do they pop!

What a beautiful background.

I love the layered look of the stenciled leaves and stamping.

Popping up the butterflies.

Hello spring!

Sprays and inks go a long way to creating a stunning background.  Look around at what you have a create your own spring paper.


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...
