Card Box

I am going to make a wedding card box for my daughters wedding and decided to practice on two little boxes but was pleasantly surprised by the result.  Since her theme for her bridal shower is Peacock I decided to cut a peacock out using the Art Nouveau cartridge and added it to the front of the boxes.  I am sure we can find a use for this box at the shower with no problem. This was fun!

Hanging Canvas

I made some small hanging canvas with a message. (Embrace your home, Cherish time and live in the moment, Search new places and laugh, Have heart the journey is worthwhile.) I sprayed the backgrounds using Dylusion sprays.  I then used distress ink over that.  I love grunge so I used my Tim Holtz die cuts and cut many different shapes and utilized them into the message.  I used 7 gypsies hooks to hang them together.  So fun to do!  Pardon the pictures...they were taken with my phone.

CC "Create your color spray"Challenge

Here is my entry into January's CC "Create your color spray" challenge.  This is actually the cover of a mini album that I am making. I had to improvise with tape on the edges after the stickyback canvas shrunk after spraying.  You can always fix your mistakes one way or another!

January Tag 2013

I had to start the new year off right by making Tim's January tag 2013!  I love the layers and since I usually don't use the gears much this was one way to use them.  I had to improvise a bit.  I didn't have the gear die cut but I had the embossing folder so I embossed some grunge and cut them out with scissors and a exact-o knife.  It works!  Now ....looking forward to February's tag. :)

Tim's B-day

Here is my submission to Studio L3's birthday cards for T!m.  I used a giant tag and folded it up to create a pocket in which I inserted a tag.  The houses, trees, and deer are popped up using pop dots so the dimension is very cool in person more so than the photograph.  I had fun making this card by using many of his techniques and die cuts.  He deserves a happy birthday from all of his fans!
