Throw nothing out!

I can't tell you how many times I threw out the plastic packaging from my last Sizzix Die purchase and then on recycling day dug it back out of the trash. Deep down I guess I knew that I could create something amazing with it, I just needed the perfect project. I love using my Bigshot machine and Bigz dies with all kinds of different materials. So I decided to play with one of my favorite Tim Holtz Christmas dies, the Tattered Poinsettia, and the clear plastic packaging from my Bigz die. The "Tattered Poinsettia Glass Ornament" is my latest creation to be featured on Ranger Inks website. You can click on the link and learn how you can create this beautiful Christmas ornament with Stickles Dry Fine Glitter and Glossy Accents.  


For the Love of Snowman 

When I first saw the Tim Holtz's Sketched Blueprint Stamps at CHA I fell in love. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the Winter set that had the Snowman and Snowflake sketch stamps in it. So when Ranger Ink had a call for Winter projects I knew just which products I wanted to play/create with.

Here is my latest tutorial that has been selected to be featured on Ranger Ink's website. This project is chalked full of all things Ranger and Distress for this Winter card. The stamp set is by Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous. I then used lots Distress Ink Pads, Distress Markers and Distress Stickles. Head on over to Ranger Ink's website to check out my step by step tutorial with photos on how to complete this Distress Snowman Card.


Birthday Wishes

Monday was my Moms' Birthday and I had no idea of a design when I started her card. All I did know is that I wanted it to include Butterflies somehow, one of her favorites. So, I first started with one of my favorite color palettes that I've been working with lately. There is just something about teal and yellow with black and white that pops. Chalkboard is also all the rave right now, so I thought I would start with these ideas as my design.

I dug around in the scrap pile and found the Top Note negative that I had punched out of wood paper a long time ago and decided to use that for the frame of my card. For the Chalkboard look. I stamped "Wishes" onto black paper with Snowcap White pigment ink and heat embossed with Seafoam White embossing powder. Then doodled around the edge with my favortie white gel pen from uni-ball. The "Happy Birthday" is from a Tim Holtz stamp set and I stamped it with Black Archival ink onto a white die cut tattered banner also from Tim Holtz.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak at my latest creation. I hope my mom likes it.
