  5. Using the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, the We Re Memory Keepers Photo Sleeves and the Mama Elephant die to create the shaker pocket.  For the full tutorial, check out his post.
  6. Before sealing the shaker pocket fill it with Little Things Crystal Sparkly from Lucy’s Cards.

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my card:

Truth (CS Take It Make It)

My new Alex and Ani Art Infusion Feather bracelet is the inspiration for my card this week. When I saw this bracelet, I knew I had to have it.  Its purple and the feather was so pretty.  I immediately wanted to make a card that represented my bracelet.

I stamped the feather from Papertrey Ink What the Doodle: Feather Mini Stamp Set using Versafine Ink.

Then I sprinkled Colorbox Sterling Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Then I used Distress Ink Seedless Preserve to watercolor the feather and the card. I heat set the card then colored more ink on top give the different saturation of this pretty purple color.

Once the card dried, I stamped the sentiment using Concord and 9th Sophisticated Script stamp set using Versafine Black Ink.

The feather represents Truth, Light, and Virtue!!

“Keep Your Heart Light” is what the motto!

So what do you think? I love how this card turned out.

CS Take It Make It: Using Different Inks

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge for June.

Our theme is Take a Technique: Lets Get Inky!!

For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use more then one type of ink on your project (ink pads, ink sprays, stains, acrylic inks, etc.)  Or more then one color of ink on your project…and don’t forget to include stamping somewhere too!!

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my tag:

Hello Tag (TIMI)

I have to admit I’m super excited about this tag.  I don’t usually create tags, much less one with all of this ink on it, but I have to say I really had fun creating this tag.

Let’s check out how I created this:

I gather my supplies that I needed.

tag supplies (CSTIMI)

I used the ink blending tool to apply the ink to tag, overlapping the colors for seamless blending.

ink blending (CSTIMI)

Then I sprayed water in my hand, then sprinkled the water onto the tag.  The inks reacts to water so it creates water spot on the tag. Let the tag dry.

water splatter (CSTIMI)

Once the tag is dry, spray some wild honey distress spray stain to the tag. Let that dry.

ink sprayed (CSTIMI)

After that ink up the stamp with waterproof ink and stamp the image.

Once the image is on the tag, ink the edges with wild honey distress ink.

Inked edges (CMTIMI)

Now that the tag is done, I inked up the ribbon with the wild honey spray and heat set the ribbon.

You add the ribbon to the tag. I felt like this card needed a sentiment.  So I die cut 3 hello’s from Mama Elephant’s Venice Envelope die set.

Take another look:

Hello Tag (TIMI)

So what do you think? I love how this tag turned out.

CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Inspiration

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge Inspiration for February.

Our theme is Take a Technique: Text Me!!

For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use text or script background stamps, or text paper in your projects. Any language, any style. Old book pages, bits torn from magazines, scrapbooking papers.. whatever you can find! … The ‘text’ part does NOT include sentiments, phrase or single word stamps…. think backgrounds!!

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my card:

Thanks on text (TIMI)

I love how this card turned out!! I used Clarity Stencils-Chinese Lantern and Clarity Stencil Brushes to create the pattern on the texted pattern paper.  These two products are my favorite supplies this year thus far.

This is how I created this card:

I placed the stencil over the pattern paper and used two different brushes to apply the Distress Ink Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn.

stencil and brushes

Here is where the magic happened, I moved the stencil over slightly to the right and applied BoBunny Sugar Glitter Paste, Yummy!!

I let the glitter paste dry and cut the unknown text pattern paper down to 4 by 5.25.

I adhered the pattern paper to the black cardstock with Tombow Extreme Adhesive because I needed the pattern paper to stick securely to the card base because of its weight.

Then I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks three times and adhered them together and onto the pattern paper using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

I placed a heavy book on top of the finish card to assure the die cut sticks to the pattern paper.

Take a closer look:

Thanks on text 3 (TIMI)

Thanks on text 2(TIMI)

 

There you go!  That’s how I created this card.

So what do you think? I’m in love, are you?

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for February: A Sprinkle Of Imagination
