Pocket Tag

 I picked up most of the new Tim Holtz Vault dies right before I left for vacation and had to start experimenting with them when I got back home. This one is Vault Boutique #666607, my favorite dies in this one are the lace doily and the rose. I found that if you put a piece of wax paper between the die and the card stock it cuts it so much better! I used various ephemera, stencil, and embossing folder that are all from Tim Holtz (and TH Sizzix).

Floral Wishes

Variations using the same stamp set- "Sending Floral Wishes" by Spellbinders.
The blue cards are inspire by Juliana Michaels and her "Faux Bleach" technique on youtube. For one I used glitter gloss to lift up some of the distress oxide ink color and I love the sparkly shine it left behind.
The other cards on the white were just for some unwinding coloring relaxation after a month away. That was my longest vacation in a very long time and I was getting so homesick by the end of it all. It's wonderful to get away but just as wonderful to get back home.

Lovely Layers Iris

 New Honey Bee Stamps "Lovely Layers Iris" is exquisite, I can't wait to make them in so many different colors. For the background I used the Salvaged Brick stencil and sprayed it through with Speckled Egg and Antique Linen distress oxide sprays. The sentiment is from "Sealed With Love" which is a must have for your handmade cards, the sequins are "Unforgettable Memories".
