August Tag

Hi Everyone: Heres the tag I'm entering in the Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2013.
Products: Halloween Blue Print 2 stamp set from Stampers Anonymous, Ranger Distressed Markers and Distressed Ink. Spice Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Mustard seed, Peeled Paint, and Black Soot. an Idea-ology pin, metal tag (used gold Alcohol ink), rub-ons, and brad with jump ring. Tag is huge 8 inches by 4 inches) For this tag I used the masking technique that Tim Holtz used on his blog. I first stamped the Raven and masked it. Then stamped the pumpkin's and masked them also. Then I stamped the Wheat. colored in the pumpkins with spiced marmalade and inked them also with spiced marmalade. I inked the tag with antique linen, mustard seed, vintage photo, peeled paint, spiced marmalade. thanks for looking Chary

Chemist Tag

Hi Again: I'm just a little post happy today. I started playing with my new Stampers Anonymous stamps. I love this set (The Chemist CMS172) So I had to upload up what I made. The August tag for Tim Holtz's blog this month is about vacation travel. He uses a masking technique where he makes a mask from a mask sheet of the focal point stamp. The cool part is I can use it over and over again. The funny part is I wasn't going to get this set. so besides the mask sheets, and The Chemist stamps I used distress stains: wild honey, antique linen, vintage photo, and peeled paint. Some Tim Holtz rub ons, a couple Idea-ology charms, light bulb and wings. I stamped in ranger's black archival ink, and used my new stencils (Splatters THS009). I love the stencils. Favorite new product!! Hope you like it.

Dylusions at Stamp Asylum

Hello again: Last month I was lucky to take a class from Dyan Reaveley the designer of Dylusions at my local stamp store Stamp Asylum in Plano. The class was so fun. I learned some great techniques and different ways of looking at ordinary magazines. I also found a way to use the huge magazine stash I have in my office. (Years and years worth). below is a Picture of Dyan with me but I so didn't like my picture. some board samples and my own creations. Thanks for looking
Hi Everyone: In the post below is a pocket mini album I made after watching a Youtube tutorial on the My Sisters Scrapper Channel Ginger is very detailed in her instructions and super organized. She made it fun and easy to learn. Yes there was math involved and you had to know how to use a ruler (paper cutter and scoreboard also). I think any house with a child in school should have a score board, because they are great for school projects. And since we the parents end up helping a lot it a great tool to have. This mini album is a present for one of my sister in-laws. I'm only a month late. which for me is not unusual. Hope you like it. Chary
