More Creativation 2017 Samples

i'm back today to share more samples i made for the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Creativation 2017 release...

the two sets that immediately 'spoke' to me were Flutter and Illustrated Garden...they are beautiful and incredible to color...so so pretty.  i created this lil 'shiplap' background with woodgrain cardstock and simple ink blending...i love how it came together.

the next set that spoke straight to my heart, is Flower Jar...my daughter teases me about my love affair with jars; can one ever have too many jars?!  vines and roses background stamp is perfect for watercolor stamping...what a great combo!! the woodgrain cardstock strikes again...its just a perfect touch...

sometimes simplicity and monochrome palettes can have a lovely impact...i love using numbers and images to make a simple impact...i loved how this came out...

here is another simple card with impact...i used tissue tape (yes, it's a favorite technique of mine) to mask off the verse then did a quick blended background with spritz and flick.  the tim holtz craft thread makes it's appearance again...along with mirrored stars that i first inked with mushroom alcohol ink then silver alcohol ink mixative...they look so cool in person.

thank you for stopping in...can't wait to share hipster...they were a sneak attack favorite!!

i love this stamp so much...i knew i had to pair the saying with these mini blueprint coffee stamps...this is a saying  i have used at work for years and i am lucky enough to love what i do...

the woodgrain cardstock was perfect to create this frame to make the saying pop stamped in picket fence distress ink on black cardstock...

one of my favorite things to do is create a simple card with the focus on a single layer where i use distress ink to add dimension and detail...this card highlights that technique...

i love these farm animals...so many possibilities...i immediately knew i wanted to stack 'em up.  another new favorite for me is the eclectic elements craft thread...it's the perfect weight thread for crafting.

 

i'll be back soon with more samples...i'm excited to share the hipsters samples and how i created the backgrounds...

thank you for stoping in!!
