Origami box

Here is an origami box I made based off of a tutorial by Bonnie at sassyscrappers channel on youtube.  She did an amazing job explaining how to make one of these.  They are really quite simple to make. You can open the lid and put stuff inside because there is quite a bit of room in there. I made the three flowers myself.   I will list the supplies I used at the end of this post.  Thanks for looking!

Here are some tags I made playing around with my distress ink and embossing powders.  Thanks for looking.

Canvas art

Here is a canvas I altered.  This is from my trip to London earlier in the year.  I used the Fired Brick and Chipped Sapphire distress inks to color the canvas.  I used Mod Podge to adhere the crown, clock, postcard and photo onto the canvas.  I stamped the large Big Ben stamp onto the canvas along with a couple of other stamps.  The pence is an actual coin I had left over from our trip and I glued it into the bottle cap.  I made my own chipboard tile and added some washi tape, distress ink and a stamp.  Thanks for looking.

Thank you card

Here is a thank you card I made.  I did some embossing on this card and used the Shabby Shutters distress ink to color over the white doily.  The patterned paper is from the Prima Tea Thyme collection.  Thanks for looking.

Art tiles and tags

Wow it has been forever since I have posted anything.  I am loving making these art tiles and tags with my stamps and Tim Holtz distress inks.  I saw several videos on YouTube on how to make these.  First you start with some chipboard and I usually cover it with white paint to start.  You can also use paper instead of paint to cover the chipboard.  Then I stamp my images on the chipboard.  I then distress it with different Tim Holtz distress inks.  Once that is dry(I use a heat gun to speed up the process) I cover the whole thing with Mod Podge to seal it in.  Once that is dry I covered some of the pieces with Glossy Accents to give the epoxy type look to the tiles.  I left the Glossy Accents off of the pagoda and Asian lady tag.  This is an awesome way to use your stamps and create your own embellishments and you can create them however you want over and over using different colors.
