Cherish Sign


Hello

Happy 2017 Everyone! I hope this post finds you in a New Year of Good Health, Happiness and Creativity!

For my first blog post of this year, I wanted to share with you a Sign I created. I love SRTC Welded Words. I have used them on Plaques, Mixed Media projects, Cards, Scrapbook Layouts and numerous Home Decor items.


Here, I have heat embossed the Cherish using Ivory Frantage and a Embossing Ink Daubber from Stampendeous. I have used Multi Medium Matte to adhere the word and foliage down to the Sign front. 

For my foliage pieces, I have painted with Distress and Acrylic paint. I then added flocking, Flower Soft and Stickles to give them dimension. My favourite is the Ivory Flower Soft on the Pussy Willows. 


For Hanging, I simply used seam binding in a warm brown colour. You can see it in the first picture.

Baby, it's Cold Outside Card

Hello!

I am back with you today to share a cute Christmas Card. I love "Cheesy Sayings" and this one was just too cute to pass up!

This card is a very Clean & simple card with the lovely Snowflake chipboard embellishments. I decided to heat emboss each of the snowflake. The 2 small ones with Ranger Snowflake Embossing Powder and the larger 2 with a Dark Teal.


I added Rhinestones to the center of each of the embossed Snowflakes and also to a few of the Pattern Paper snowflakes.

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?!

Above is a close up picture of the Paper Coffee Cups. When you purchase these Paper Coffee Cup Combo, they come with 3 different sizes. I used the small and medium from the set here on my card.

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.
