create cards with sizzix!

hello everyone!!

i am back this week to show you quickly one more card i created this month for the Eileen Hull (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/)Inspiration team’s ‘create cards with Sizzix’ card challenge..

you see TODAY is Eileen Hull’s birthday so i wanted to create a card especially for her!
happy-birthdayi used her eyelet lace (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?dir=desc&order=display_start_date&q=eileen+hull)embossing folder and her Pansy (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661109/sizzix-bigz-die-flower-pansy)die  along with a couple of spring leaves (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661111/sizzix-bigz-die-leaves-spring)to create this birthday wish for her!!!

when creating the card I simply cut out two pansy flowers, inked them using my favourite distress ink in ground expresso (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/RESERVE-Tim-Holtz-Distress-Mini-Ink-Pad-GROUND-ESPRESSO-Ranger-TDP47353-TDP47353RI)and layered them using a jingle brad (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-JINGLE-BRADS-Fasteners-TH93331-TH93252). I then just die cut out the ‘handwritten birthday’ (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Sizzix-HANDWRITTEN-CELEBRATE-Thinlits-Die-660215-660215TH?currency=USD) sentiment and adding happy and some twine and there you have it!!

hope you have followed along on this months inspiration challenge and checked out the wonderful creations by my fellow teamies!!!

TTT – September 2016

hello everyone!!

i am here today to  quickly share with you all my version of this months Tim’s Twelve Tags – Remix 2016 (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-september/). for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!!

I have to say I fell in love with this technique during the CC103 this summer and I had so much fun playing and was totally tempted to use one of the pieces I created then but nope!! new month, new tag.

so here is what I came up with and felt I failed miserably

spooky-eyes

but wanted to keep going…. and here is what I ended up with after restamping with a bit of blue and red archival inks  and apply tim’s technique through the stencil

twelve-tag-spooky

and then I thought I would try it again and see what else I could do….

story

a-spooky-story

I have to admit I struggled with this one and even though I felt through the process I was missing something I am pleased with  how it turned out and  I did enjoy the process. that is my favourite thing about doing these monthly tags. it allows me to either practice what it is I love to do or challenges me to try something new. I hope you have all played along this month and have had the opportunity to play with something new

Emerald Creek is one year old!!

hello everyone!!

today is a very special day … it is the one year anniversary of Emerald Creek entered our world!!  i can’t believe in one way it’s been a year and then in another way think i’ve only known Kim for a year???

for this months she had asked all her design team, current and former, to create something in celebration but with the category of ‘anything goes’… well here is my project.

emerald creek Sun Mask (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.org/product-p/g0005j NULL.htm) and the Moon Mask (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.org/product-p/g0006j NULL.htm)  are two stamps i have had for a while and i wasn’t sure at the time why they wanted to come live with me but i am sure glad they did!!

so out came a few of my supplies and i started creating. using cut N dry stamp felt i was able to make my own stamp pad so i didn’t have to worry about inking up the stamp with different colours each time

once the image was stamped using distress ink and embossed with clear embossing powder (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.org/Clear-Embossing-Powder-p/ecc-110 NULL.htm) it was time to add the paint (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.org/product-p/dp-paint NULL.htm) and the ink and the collage medium

emerald-creek-collage

what did i make… well i made a simple tictactoe game using Eileen Hull’s ATB’s (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/658058/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-box-square), some mat board (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/656491/sizzix-little-sizzles-6-x-13-mat-board-pack-6-cream-sheets)and a canvas frame. it was such a fast and simple project to create and has already brought us lots of fun playing!

Here’s to another successful year filled with Emerald Creek adventures!
