Love Note

Sharing a little love with my wee note I made quickly.  

I have created a tutorial for you so you can follow along and create your own.  My goal is to try and make more tutorials for you.  I wanted to stamp, ink and play with Fallen Blossom.  Check out how I made this card.

How about starting with Correspondence paper and yes the Envelop die.  Before cutting the Handwritten Love sentiment I sanded the core paper to achieve that distress look.  I love watercolor paper cards especially stamping my Fallen Blossom stamp.

I stamped the small blossoms then used distress markers bundled sage, spun sugar and worn lipstick.  Then they were trimmed.  


I inked the edges of all 3 blossoms with worn lipstick, then set aside.  I then used my markers to ink up the blossom stamp, click HERE to see.  A little more worn lipstick around the cards edges then some glue on the sentiment.


Before attaching the sentiment I wanted to add a subtle layer with the spun sugar and hearts stencil.  This is really quick and a pretty layer.


Time for those wee blossoms that were set aside.  I trimmed and popped the blossoms up with some 3D Foam squares.  I these popped up! 


I inked the envelope with more distress ink worn lipstick then stamped the front of it with the sentiment from Fallen Blossom, "Remember to make memories..."  I love clear rock candy stickles added to the blossoms.


There you have it!


This card and envelope takes about 20 minutes.  It's a quick stamp, ink and a couple of cuts.


The extra blossom stamps add a perfect layer for dimension.


The heart stencil is a pretty subtle layer.


I love the sentiment on the outside of the envelope die cut.  Usually it's inside the card.


How about a little added touch of the mini heart die stamped with the blossom stamp and inked.


What a fun quick card.


I hope you like my quick little card and coordinating envelope.  I took me longer to write this post then to make it.  I made this card for my honey.  He's been working really hard lately and supporting me with CHA and launching my new stamp line.  So, I kinda like him.

Lets play...

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 …

Mixed Media Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
