Less than "10 Minute" Card

I literary had 10 minutes to make this card.  I've said it a million times.  When you have extra paints, stains or inks on your craft mat grab a scrap and use up that product!  This card is a perfect example.  I had extra paint on my mat so I ran through an extra tag to use it up.  I threw it in my box and there it waited until now. 
With no time I made this in just over 5 minutes.
  A quick stamp with the Classic #1 dragon fly and it's quickly taking shape.
I always have scraps and left overs from other projects ready to use.  This film strip and scrap paper pieces are left over from the Retro TV project.  The Cancer Sucks stamp is a Scrappy Moms Stamp from when I was on their DT.  LOVE this set!
I usually layer some paper on the inside.  But remember, no time.  So I stamped my #hastags stamp right to the kraft inside.
I cut the tag top off and ran it through my vagabond using the torn edges die.
I have a stack of scraps full of stains, paints and inks waiting to be used in a snap.  Don't wipe up extra product.  Soak it up and use it when you need a card in a hurry!
Thanks for stopping by and I so love reading all your sweet comments!  Hope you're liking my blog changes!

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...
