It’s in the cards

This month at Tattered Angels, we’re all crafting up some cards with a little help from our friends at Epiphany Crafts. My first card was inspired by a new book I picked up recently –Collage Couture by Julie Nutting. Such a fun book with great tips for illustrations and collage work.  I clearly need more practice- I cut my girly out of dictionary paper and misted her with Tattered Rose Glimmer Mist, her top is a scrap with some Mermaid Glam and her skirt is made from hearts punched using the Epiphany Button Studio Heart Tool.  For the background I used a Glimmer Screen from the Fancifuls set and Patina Glimmer Mist on top of some Bo Bunny paper.  A few butterflies coated in Big Apple Glimmer Glam to cover up a stamping boo-boo and this card is ready to roll.

Up next, a card with flowers using one of my favorite things to mist – Athletic Tape.  I discovered this one by accident and just love how the color saturates the tape without it losing it’s stickiness.  I sprayed strips of tape with Patina, Turquoise Blue and Dragonfly Glimmer Mists and then accordion folded them into flowers. The tag was left over from last month’s Birthday Girl layout.  For the background I used the plastic grid from a latch hook rug kit as a stencil.

Have you noticed all the projects with pinwheels popping up around the web,  it’s no wonder, they are a great icon of the carefree days of summer.  I couldn’t resist making a card with them.  For the background I was inspired by a piece of paper from Sassafrass’s Sunshine Broadcast collection – since I couldn’t really cut the paper to scale and maintain the look, I created a similar look with glimmer glam, mists and a little distress ink.  Remember that Glimmer Glam works as a resist when you mist on top of it.

 

Until next time…

What’s New?

how about a layout…

I really thought I’d  moved on from my need to have every tool known to man…this came along, I resisted for a bit and then after playing with it at Archiver’s I had to have it, meet

my new tool obsession…

Now I can make my own prima like flowers like the one in the layout

For this one I punched some basic cream cardstock, misted with banana chalkboard mist and then painted the highlights with yellow daisy glimmer mist.  So fun.  I’ve made several of these with the scraps lying around on my desk.

So what’s new with you?

The Happy Shelf Part II…

Long time readers of this blog will recognize my little red shelf,  it’s a favorite vintage find and the anchor of my scrap room. It has held many things over the past two years…ribbons, buttons, vintage spools…but never quite right until now.  Clearly this shelf was made to hold my mist collection.

It makes me so happy to stare up to see all of the bottles together, talk about motivation not to leave them strewn around my work space.  And yes, Ronda, they are in rainbow order.

But now I have a dilemma…look what’s coming from Tattered Angels now.  Brand new bright colored chalkboard mists.

Aren’t they gorgeous…when these and the other fabulous colors come I think I may be on the hunt for another shelf.

As if those new colors weren’t enough…Tattered Angels, Prima, Pink Paislee and House of Three have up something special up their sleeves! Be sure to  watch the Live webshow on Tuesday, January 18th at 8p MST for a pre-CHA sneak peek and exciting announcements! http://www.ustream.tv/channel/heidi-swapp-live.
