Love Notes- Oxford Impressions

So many times I need to do up a quick note of thanks and
just don't have the time to make a complicated card.
has come up with the perfect solution.
A entire page of elements and text for that quick note.


Here's just a few things I created with this wonderful set.
A simple Thank You tag.
Just add an image and some ribbon and your tag's ready to go..

Another simple tag. Easy Peasy!!!!

Of course you can always use the stamps and get a bit more creative.
Here I used the Paris stamps on domino's  for an altered art piece.
A bit of Alcohol ink. Some pretty papers, Stamped images
Mounted in a tin and added a hanger and some ribbon.
How FUN is that!!!

as a set ,done in ivories , greens and bits of lace.

Steampunk Heart- Round Robin

If you remember a couple of weeks ago I shared my Round Robin cover
 for my book
from the swap at Kindred Souls Art Group
Well this month I had a chance to work on Rhea's book.
Her theme is Steampunk Heart's
This page features Tim Holtz clock die that I rusted.
 Image inside is from Graphics 45.
Its hard to tell from the photo but the image was crackled first then I added a layer of
gel medium to tone down the shine. Also added some of Tim's ideology gears.

The text is from Alpha Stamps and the Steampunk heart is a collection of
clock pieces I put together.

The back page heart was embossed on metal painted and sanded back.
Then I added a touch of Perfect Pearls for color.
I punched holes all around the heart and used metal wire to stitch around it.
I again Rusted the key. The word is from Tim's Ransom letters.

You open the heart to reveal "Love is All you need"
some of Tim's gear die cuts ,a clock. Women image cut into heart shape
and a old tintype also cut into a heart shape.
I sure hope she likes it.

I'm entering this in Nancys 14 Hearts challenge

Fabric and Lace

Good Morning my dear blog friends. Its been a busy work week,
 so I haven't had much free time to do any blogging.
Today I'm here to share a fabric and lace piece I sent to a sweet friend
who's workplace had a terrible fire. She lost all of her personal art in the fire.
Her new office will be shabby chic so
I wanted to start her off with a little something for her wall.
Just heard from her that it arrived and she Loves it.

This was a special order cuff bracelet I had made some time ago
that just so happened went to the same friend.

Have a lovely weekend.
I'll be catching up with you all soon.
