Fairy Dolls

I went a different way with the Heartfelt Journal die.  I made a shadow box with it.  You can create all sorts of compartments and cubby's to stuff little trinkets.  In my case I created a large opening to create my little story.


I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Reinker to colour y texture paste and applied to the cover of the cover with layering stencil Rose.  Tinting looks amazing on it.


I attached a strip of mat board on the outside and inside for the journal allowing for a 2" depth when done.  I cut strips of mat board to create the inside of the box.  I painted the box with black gesso including right over the pink roses.


I wasn't planning on painting the whole thing with black gesso... but paint happens!


I inked the chip quotes with Oxides and attached to the cover.


How awesome is the distress of these roses!


Some wallflower paper stash and envelope die on the inside.


The shadow box created is simple and pretty with paper dolls, grassy bits and a fence.


I cut and layered small duo butterfly wings for the pretty dolls.


The perfect set of wings to create fairy's!


I could have added so much more.  But sometimes you just need to step away and leave it.


The versatility of the die keeps on going!  A shadow box filled with fairy's, papers and secrets can be so much fun!  I have everything I used linked below.  Click and shop ;)

Liberty

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. 

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 Fadeand 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 adora…
