Seasons Greetings Card

 
Hello,

Thank you for joining me, Corina, for today's post, I will be sharing this festive card using the beautiful Wood Reindeer as my focal image. The Reindeer is simply stunning with his stance and lovely detail - love it!


As you can see above, under the Wood Reindeer and embossed white circle, I have used the Swirling Heart. I applied Versa-Mark to the top and sprinkled with gold glitter embossing powder. Heat set and adhered it on top of the Kraft doily circle. The swirls add so much dimension to my card.

I really like how versatile all the embellishment are. You would typically not use a Heart/Love embellishment on a Christmas themed card yet it works so well. Would you guess that there is a heart under those layers?!

Hand Bound Journal


Hello

Happy Thanksgiving to all fellow Canadians! It has been a very busy time around my household. We have even had our first snow fall - it did not stay so I'm okay with it!!

For today's post, I decided to share an upcoming class I will be teaching at the end of the month in Prince George and in November here in my town of Quesnel. I love creating my own Hand bound books - I can customize each lovely Book/Journal for the recipient needs, character and likes!


For this Journal, I added the Victorian Round Frame and a Keyhole to the cover. I painted with acrylic coffee paint and then used UTEE (ultra thick embossing powder) on top. I love the extra texture and shine this gives.

Knight in Shining Armor Card


Happy beginning of Fall!

Thank you for joining me today. I have created a mixed media card showcasing the Ornate Oval Frame. I really enjoyed creating each element of this card and found this sentiment humorous!


My stamped image was coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and placed in the Ornate Oval Frame. I used Gesso and a stipple brush to create a textured look, then painted it with Distress Paint in Pewter. Added paper flowers and tinfoil balls for embellishments. 

On the left side of the card, I adhered two hinges inked with Pewter Distress Stain. The sentiment was printed for a computer and matted with tinfoil and black distressed cardstock.

Enjoy the Ride Card


Hello & Happy September!

I am back on the blog today, to share my card using the awesome Retro Bike. I absolutely love altering the Chipboard pieces. It allows you to make each piece special and colour coordinated to each project.


For the Retro Bike, I used True Blue Stickles on the bike frame and Brushed Pewter Distress Stain on the spokes & basket. I applied Black Enamel to the tires, chain, pedal, seat and handle bars. Add a tucked stamped sentiment that worked perfectly!


I used white Paper Roses and coloured them using Glimmer Mist and Brushed Pewter Distress Spray. I added a little True Blue Stickles to the edges of the blue dyed roses.

For the Gears, I heat embossed using silver embossing powder and versamark.

Thinking of you Card

Hello,

Thank you for joining me for today's post, I will be sharing this vibrant card using a new Stencil and awesome chipboard designs from Southern Ridge Trading Company.

So lets get started! I first inked a piece of watercolour paper using Distress inks and a blender foam in Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn. I placed the Fence Pattern Stencil over the inked surface and spritzed lightly with water. I allowed it to soak in for around 30 seconds and then removed the stencil and quickly dried it with a heat tool. I was wanting a light effect, if you want it bolder - spritz with more water. 
I tore the edges of the watercolour paper and inked the perimeter with Black Soot. I then embossed all my chipboard embellishments with Black Embossing Powder. I also heat embossed my sentiment using the black Embossing powder.

I added my silhouette Flowers to the card front and tucked in pieces from the Honeycomb Pattern under the torn edges. I love the dimension this gives the card!
