Pull Yourself Together Card

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick and easy card I created! As I had mentioned in a previous blog post ColorBox closed their doors July 31st and I still have a few projects that I created using their product…I know I am slow getting them posted…sorry there is only so much of me to go around in a day but I am getting there. 😕

I started by inking a glass tray with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Salmon and Bumble Bee inks, added water, loaded a paint brush and randomly added the ink mixture to the Tiny Dots Creative Card front and then I let dry. I placed the Swirl Dot Art Screen on top of card, inked an Art Dauber with Tomato Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and rubbed over the art screen. Once I achieved the desired effect I was after I removed the art screen.


I placed the Scallop Square Cutting Template on top of a piece of Watercolor Paper, placed between cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine.I inked the glass tray with Bumble Bee Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, added water and placed the scallop square diecut in the ink mixture and once the diecut was completely covered I removed and let dry. I placed the Pull Yourself Together sentiment from the Buttercup Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto the scallop square diecut. Next I inked an art dauber with Princess Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and inked the edges of scallop square diecut and adhered to the card base. 

I placed a piece of watercolor paper on top of the Intricate Flowers Border Diecut, placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I inked art daubers with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks: Fruit Punch, Princess and Inchworm and inked the intricate flowers border diecut and glued to the lower half of the card base. I inked the Mandala Heart Wood Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper.Then inked a glass tray with Princess Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, added water and painted the stamped Mandala Heart image and let dry. I fussy cut the heart image out with scissors, added Foam Pop Dots to the back and placed on the card. I then inked two art daubers with Tomato  and Posy Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and inked the lower half of the heart image.

Next I placed the heart stamp from the Thankful Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Posy Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper. I fussy cut the heart image out with scissors and adhered to the larger heart.I finished by adding tulle and thread behind the larger heart. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Gears and Sprockets Dad Tag

Hi everyone! With Father’s Day quickly approaching I want to share a manly tag I created using ColorBox and Eileen Hull’s newest Blends 2 Inks! 

I inked a glass tray with Nutmeg and Golden Blends 2 Inks and added a small amount of water to each ink. I placed the tag in both ink mixtures and once completely covered I removed and let dry. I placed the tag in the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and place between cutting plates and run through the Diecut MachineI inked two Art Daubers with Nutmeg and Flagstone Blends 2 Inks and lightly ink over embossed area and edges of tag.

I inked the glass tray with Stop Blends 2 Ink, added water to the ink, loaded a paint brush with ink mixture and splatter tag. Next I inked the glass tray with Nutmeg Blends 2 Ink, added water to ink and added half of the Handwritten Creative Card to ink mixture. Once completely covered I removed and let dry. I placed the inked card on top of the Rectangle diecut and place between cutting plates and run through diecut machine. I adhered the diecut off center of tag.

Next I placed a piece of watercolor paper on top of three gear diecuts from the Sprightly Sprockets Diecuts and placed between cutting plates and run through diecut machine. I inked the glass tray with Nutmeg Blends 2 Ink, added water to ink and place gear diecuts in ink mixture. Once completely covered I removed and let dry. Next clean the glass tray and ink with Copper and Rose Gold Blends 2 Inks  I loaded two Art Daubers with inks and randomly ink all three gear diecuts and circle diecut from the center of one of the gear diecuts. I applied Opalescent Embossing Powder to all diecuts and set with a Heat ToolI inked all diecuts randomly with Top Boss Clear Embossing Stamp Pad and applied more Opalescent Embossing Powder to diecuts and set with heat tool.

I adhered the gear diecuts to tag and added four gold gems to sprocket gear diecut.

Next ink the letters “dad” with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto the circle diecut. I cut three nine inch pieces of cording and tie off at the top of tag.

I punched a hole in the circle diecut and with wire snips I cut a small amount of 24GA Brown Bend Wire and thread through cording. I added circle diecut and twist to secure diecut. I curled the wire around pencil. I finished by adding three sequins and a gem to the corner of circle diecut. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Hi everyone! I want to share another project, a paper clip I altered, that was shown in ClearSnap’s booth this past January at Creativation .

I placed the cloud stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto an Acrylic Block/Precision Press(retired) and inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and I stamped randomly on one side of the folded piece of cardstock. I inked an Art Dauber with Bahama Premium Dye Ink and lightly ink edges of banner and the cloud images.


I cut the stamped clouds cardstock 8″x3 1/2″ and fold in half, 4″x3 1/2″. I cut a “v” in the end of cardstock to create a banner.

I placed the Daydream stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto an acrylic block/Precision Press(retired) and inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of cardstock.

How to Turn a Cottage Cheese Container into a Mini Easter Basket

Hi everyone! I want to share a mini Easter basket I created using an empty cottage cheese container.

I started with an empty container of cottage cheese…if you aren’t fond of eating cottage cheese a yogurt container will work too and if you don’t like yogurt maybe you can find someone to eat it for you. 😁 I cleaned it inside and out and let dry.

The cottage cheese container I used I peeled the label off. So I traced with a pencil the outside of the label onto a piece of Watercolor Paper and cut out with scissors. 

I inked the glass tray with Hydrangea Blends Ink. I added water, painted the watercolor paper and let dry.

I inked the Simple Dots Rollagraph with Glacier Lake Archival Dye Ink and roll onto the piece of watercolor paper. 

Once the watercolor paper is dry I adhered watercolor paper to container.

I punched holes on either side of the container with a hole punch and ran a pipe cleaner through each hole and twist to secure to the container.

I placed a piece of textured white cardstock on top of the Brenda Walton: Medallion Diecut (retired) and place between two cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine. I put the medallion together according to directions on packaging. I inked an Art Dauber with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Ink Pad and ink edges of the medallion diecut and adhered to container. I also adhered trim to the top and bottom of container.

I placed the flowers and leaf sprigs stamps from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set onto MISTI Stamping Tool. I inked the flowers with Pink and Peony Inks from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and the leaf sprigs with Olive Ink from the Sunset Petal Points Inks. I stamped all onto a piece of Textured White Cardstock. I fussy cut the stamped flowers and leaf sprigs out and looped thread several times and made a mess bow. I adhered flowers, leaf sprigs and bow onto the medallion. The finishing touches I added gems, flatback pearl and sequin to the center of each flower.  

I added Easter grass and decorative eggs to this little Easter basket but it would be perfect for candy, stickers and tiny little goodies. As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Mini Spring Junk Journal

Hi everyone and happy first day of Spring! I want to share a mini Spring junk journal that I created with all my leftover from my past projects that I created for ColorBox. No need to throw the extras away just add them to another project and that is what I done. 😀
Before I get started in telling how and what I used on each page…four page total…I cut and bound each page with I laid each page on top of the Movers and Shapers Book Binding Diecut with Base Tray (retired) and ran through the Diecut Machine

The cover/page one is cut from Matboard using the Books and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut and embossed with the Waffle Embossing Folder (retired). I inked the glass tray with Tutu Blends Ink, add water to ink, load paint brush and painted the front of the frame/cover and let dry. I lightly inked over and around the edges of the cover with Blush Metallic Pigment Ink.

I inked two Art Daubers, one with Canary and one with Apricot Inks from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and ink two matboard flowers with one of each inks. I let both flowers dry. I placed the leaf sprig stamp from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and stamp onto a piece of Textured White Cardstock. I fussy cut the stamped image out. Next I placed a brad in the center of both flowers and add leaf sprigs to back of flower before adhering to the cover.

The inside cover I inked an Art Dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink, inked a butterfly punch and once dry I adhered to the inside cover. I also added a gem to butterfly.

The front of page two I inked the Crackle Background Rollagraph (I couldn’t find a link for the rollagraph but found a link for the moulding mat which is the same design just not on a roller) with Top Boss Embossing Stamp Pad and went over the Watercolor Paper page.I applied White Embossing Powder and set with Heat Tool. Once the embossed area was cool to the touch I loaded three Art Daubers with the following inks: Dandelion Premium Dye, Glacier Lake Archival and Rosebud Classic Pigment Inks and randomly inked over the whole page.
I placed the flower stamps from the Thankful Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked two of the flowers with Peony and one flower with Pink Inks from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and stamped onto a piece of textured white cardstock and fussy cut both out. I punched a leaf sprig from textured white cardstock  and inked the leaves with Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks. I then adhered a leaf and peony colored flower to the bottom corner of page two.

The back side of page two I inked the Butterfly Words Stamp with Glacier Lake Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of texture white cardstock, fussy cut the stamped image out and adhered to backside of page two. I added a bit of trim and a button to butterfly.

The front of page three I adhered a circle and strip of patterned cardstock to coffee sleeve. I lightly watercolored a flower diecut with Tutu Blends Ink and while still damp, shaped with my hand and let dry. I added a brad to center of flower and two leaves before adhering to page.

The back side of page three I placed textured white cardstock on top of the Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Sky Blue Ink from Enchantment Petal Point Inks and ink edges of diecut and I adhered to the back of page three. I added a button to the top of the diecut.

For the pull out tag I inked the Tulip Watering Can Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. I inked the glass tray with Shamrock, Citronella and Heather Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and added water to each ink and paint the tulips and leaves on the watering can. Next I fussy cut the watering can image out and adhered to tag and add clear glitter glue to image. Once dry I placed the tag inside coffee sleeve.

On page four I used a left over piece of the Tiny Dots Creative Card and adhered leftover stamped flowers, leaves and flower punches to corner of page. I added a gem to the center of one flower.

I added four Discs to each of the pages.

ColorBox/Eileen Hull: Tutu Blends Ink

Spring Butterfly Tag

Hi everyone and happy Monday! I want to share a springy tag I created for ClearSnap!

I started by inking a glass tray with Hydrangea Blends Ink, adding water and placing the Tag in the ink mixture. The tag didn’t have to be completely covered so I removed and let dry. I cleaned the glass tray and inked with Frog Blends Ink, added a small amount of water to ink and randomly lay parts of the tag in mixture, removed and let dry. Next I inked the Simple Dots Rollagraph with Glacier Lake Archival Dye Ink and roll over tag.

I placed the Tear Drop Circle Diecut on top of a piece of Textured White Cardstock and  placed between two cutting plates and ran through the Diecut Machine. I placed the first Butterfly Art Screen on top of the Tear Drop Circle Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Citronella Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over the screen and removed.

I placed the second Butterfly Art Screen directly over stenciled area of butterfly, ink art dauber with Shamrock Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over screen and removed.

I placed the third Butterfly Art Screen directly over stenciled area of the butterfly, inked an art dauber with Moonstone Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over screen.  

Once I removed the screen I inked an art dauber with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink over the edges of diecut. I added pop dots to the back of the Tear Drop Circle Diecut and place on top of tag. With a paper cutter I cut a piece of patterned cardstock 1 7/8″x4 1/4: and cut a “v” in the end which creates a banner. I adhered the banner to the tag.

I cut from textured white cardstock Flowers and leaves from crinoline fabric from the Journaling Cards Flowers  and Leaves DiecutsI inked an art dauber with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink the edges of two of the flower diecuts, shaped and adhere both flowers together. I added a button to the center of the flower. I inked an art dauber with Olive Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink over the crinoline fabric leaf and adhered to back of flower before adding to tag. Next I made two bows one from seaming binding and one from thread and adhered both to the corner and underneath flower.


I placed the “For Small Wonders” stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamp Set on the MISTI Stamp Tool  Ink with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of textured white cardstock. I cut the word “Small” and “Wonders” out with a paper cutter. Cut a “v” in the end of each to create a banner and adhered both to the bottom of stenciled butterfly and under the flower. I cut three 8 inch pieces of ribbon and lace and threaded all pieces through the top of tag. Tie off and adhere a button to ribbon and lace. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
