happy birthday

 I've got another birthday card to show you today.
I picked out some papers from the Pink Paislee Prairie Hill 6x6 paper pack. I also used off white and brown cardstock. I also used a piece of  white paper lace I had cut with a Sizzlits Vintage Lace dieI cut the butterfly with my Alterations mini butterfly die set. I hand cut the little butterfly body.
I used some Distress Antique Linen ink and Distress Broken China stain on the crinkle ribbon to distress it a bit. I used Kaiser pearls for the butterflies trail and on the sentiment.
The scalloped circle is the small die from the MFT open scallop doily duo set. I used my Creative Memories circle cutter for the inside of the scalloped circle. Any circle cutter or die would work as long as it fits inside the small doily. The sentiment is stamped with Distress Walnut Stain ink and Our Craft Lounges Tweet Thang stamp set.

play, giggle, live

I've got mixed media journal pages to show you today.
I used my Dylusions journal, pulled out some supplies and went to town!
 I love to do mixed media canvases so I thought I'd give it a try in my journal. The pages are very sturdy from all the paper, mod podge and paint. 
I love using bits and pieces of this and that to create something fun. I got the OK tags out of an old file cabinet I got at an auction. I used Tim's numbers remnant rubs here and there, I'm loving the rub-ons, they add the perfect touch to the project.
Here's a pic of the supplies I used. I ended up not using the small Prima flowers and white enamel accents.
This is how I started. I covered both pages with terminology tissue wrap and tore pieces of  Prima hello pastel paper and randomly adhered them to the pages. The tags were next, then the ribbons, lace and trinket, the paint and gesso, the paper doll, houses, sun and adage tickets. Last was the large Prima flower the Tim Holtz numbers rub-ons and liquid pearls. I did the outlining with Faber-Castell big brush pens in cold grey, dark sephia and light phthalo green. If you use a gel medium or mod podge over your papers you can outline with the big brush pens and blend with your finger, it makes your pieces pop off the page.
Well, that's it, hope I inspired you today!

Inspiration Journal guest

Hi bloggers, it's my turn to guest post this week for the Inspiration Journal.
This months challenge theme is birthdays or celebrating.
I decided to make a pocket card for money or gift cards.
 To make the card I cut a piece of white cardstock at 4 1/4" vertically, scored at 5 1/2" and scored again at 1 1/2" from one end, folded and creased. I cut another piece of white and embossed it with my notebook texture fade and adhered it under the flap on the card front.
Next, I cut a piece of grey and white polka-dot paper from the prima hello pastel 6x6 paper pad and adhered it to the inside back of the card. I cut pieces of different papers from the pad and made flags and adhered them to the flap.
For the insert, I made a tag and attached a strip of paper with my tiny attacher to hold the money. I punched the corners of the insert and card with a SU! corner punch.
I traced along the top of the flap with my tracing wheel for the faux stitching.
I made the flower with my alterations mini paper rosettes die with a piece of paper from the idea-ology vintage shabby paper stack. I added the prima metal bird paper clip and the happy birthday sentiment from idea-ology label letters.
                  Make sure you upload your celebration work of art for your chance to win $50 to spend at Inspiration Emporium!
Thanks for stopping by!

happy 4th!

Happy 4th bloggers!
The challenge over at the Inspiration Journal this month is celebrating America or any birthday.
I had some great 4th stamp sets by Our Craft Lounge, I used various stamps from 3 sets, Patriotic Parade, Life's a Picnic and All about the USA. These and all of the OCL sets are on sale at Inspiration Emporium!
I stamped them with Archival Jet Black ink on vanilla cardstock. I colored them in with Distress and Copic markers. I stamped over each image with a block stamp by Stampers Anonymous and Distress Antique Linen ink. Then I used my 1 1/4" square punch and punched part or all of the stamped image and adhered it to the navy blue cardstock. The punched border along the bottom is punched with a fleur de lis EK Success punch. The ribbon is May Arts.

That's it, now create your master piece and upload it to the Inspiration Journal, you could be the winner!
I hope y'all have a fun, safe 4th!
