Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  

Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!


I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers, Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.


The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!

Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.


I also got the new Flourish Texture Fade and it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.


This Watering Can is so adorable.  I pulled it from a past project.  I recycle my cuts from time to time which makes for a quick card.


I cannot tell you how sweet these flowers are!


All the Wildflowers are tucked behind the Watering Can and a teeny tag from Tiny Tabs & Tags tied with twine.


The embossed flourish is a perfect backdrop.


The vibrance of the Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders is stunning with these Wildflowers.


Bring on Spring!


Back to regular creating and sharing!  I have some new products and projects to share!  Thanks for popping by!

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card.
