Blossom Bloom Grow - AALL & Create


Hi all, today I am sharing a simple yet effective card made primarily with one stamp and stencil from AALL& Create and autumn colors. 

The stamp I am using is Growth in numbers #120 by Tracy Evans of which I have stamped the top part where I'll focus on the flower and words. Then I took some distress oxides in autumn colors and stencil #45 digital bubbles by Autour deMwa for background texture created with my blending tool. 

I stamped the flower part again on a separate piece of cardstock and colored them in & cut them out & popped them up with foam squares. I chose a co-coordinating colors for the words and the flower: Flower petals & Bloom, Stem & Blossom and the background (=soil) & Grow. I've added water spatters to activate the oxide ink and also splattered some Lindy's Turbine Teal home made spray onto the card & gave some accents to the flower & words with it. 

Close up of the Lindy's Turbine Teal accents on the flower. And I really love the numbers in the flower petals, it's such a lovely detail!

To finish the card I have used a dark blue color to frame the card, more water spatters and some texture stamping with the grungy flower from set 123 also by Tracy Evans. I love how the subtle texture of the stencil still shines through. This card was quite easy and simple to make so when you're pressed for time and need a positive & encouraging card to send to someone, perhaps you can give this a go.

MT's Teeny Halloweeny - That's a wrap!


If you have been following me over on my Facebook page, you might have seen my micro journaling project in october coming by. I've posted a daily process video on my Teeny Halloweeny makings through the whole month. This is a collage of the end result of that project.  I am honestly amazed that I've made it through another month of daily micro journaling because at some point it was a struggle to keep finding new ways for the theme. This is also the reason why I have switched to a slightly larger size (the Jot Tiny Key-Per) for the last week. You can see all the close up pictures on my Instagram feed and see the process video's on my YouTube channel and I've made a playlist of all the video's which you can watch below;


For more info on the project you can check out my post here where I fist started the journey in august.

Follow your heart - AALL & Create


Today I wanted to share a card I made using wonderful stamps and stencils from AALL & Create. I've used stamp sets number 127 & 128 designed by Katy Paltridge and the sentiment is from set 138 by Olga Heldwein.

The sketch type stamps by Katy Paltridge has such a wonderful whimsical feel to it. I love using watercolors with them. Above you see the process of getting the color in this young lady done. I'm using Jane Davenport Glitz sea set on Caran d'ache mixed media paper. When The colors were blended to my liking I drew in the hair in the same sketchy feel as the stamp. I trimmed the piece to 6x4 inches and made the card out of it.

I masked the woman and took stencil #39 - lotz of dotz and a blending tool & sponged distress oxide fossilized amber through it. It created the background pattern with beautiful golden tones & makes the front image pop. 


On the bottom I stamped the foliage in set 127 in lavender tones & added the banner and sentiment from set 138 to finish the card. I had to cut the sentiment apart to fit into the banner how I wanted it, but I personally do not have an issue with that. Just goes to show how versatile clear stamps are. 

This could be the type of card you can send to a young woman entering adulthood, reminding her to follow their heart amidst the turmoil of growing up.
