I’m super excited to show all of you the charms and spell book I made for a charm swap over at Life on the Scrapbeach! Right from the start I knew I wanted to do a spell book as the display for my charms and I wanted the spell book to look really old. It was Tim Holtz distressing ink and a paper lunch bag to the rescue!
My Tim Holtz distresser ink collection is growing so I thought it was time that I organized it. I like to use the finger dobbers with my distressers and I recently saw that there was a plastic tray organizer available on the market for them. I couldn’t find the organizer at my M’s or J’s so I decided to find something close and make it work. I found this plastic bead container at J’s for less than $5 and the dobbers fit in it! Yay! I purchase the dobbers from my J’s too (I need to get more..lol). I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the lid and inked some samples on it so I know which dobber belongs to which distresser ink pad. I also labeled all my ink pads with the name on one side and a sample on the other side.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a happy scrappy holiday!
My daughter came to me and asked me to make a card that she could send to a soldier overseas. Her Jr. High English class has a voluntary project to send cards to soldier and she wanted to participate. So, I let her pick the Cricut cut and then I designed the card with her.
I really wanted to give some new inking techniques a try, so I created this card using an embossing and inking technique to create my own paper.
- Using a Studio G snowflake stamp, I randomly stamped a white piece of cardstock using Versa Mark
- I then used fine white embossing power and a heat gun to set it
- Next, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Broken China) with a Tim Holtz blender and inked the entire page, making darker and lighter areas. The ink will not adhere to the embossed snowflakes so they stay white.
- Finally, I sprayed the paper with Tattered Angels Glimer Mist (Dazzling Diamonds) to give it a frosty look.
I think it turned out awesome. I am entering it in the following challenges. Wish me luck!
