All Dolled Up....#hipforsummer

  Love love love Hipsters! Made this for a dear friend for her birthday next month. 

  Also in love with Distress Oxides! Got my order in for the next 12! The sentiment is from my stash and I have no idea where it came from! 

  I added Nuvo Crystal Drops, Gloss White to the ostrich to make it look like earrings and a necklace. Coloured them both with coloured pencils. Tim's Gothic stencil at the top, doodling around the edge.

  Love the matching dies. Used some 3D Thin black foam squares.

  The inside. The 3 sentiment stamps are from Tim's Crazy Talk set. "Because..." is from one of the Chit Chat or Small Talk sticker sets. Doily stencil at top.

  The back.

  Going to enter this in The Sizzix "Get Hip For Summer with Tim Holtz" This is the last week for it. #hipforsummer.

  Also, this will be my second entry for a Flickr group I am with. It's the "Anything Goes" July challenge.

  Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week and get inky!

More Rolo Cards

  More Rolodex cards I made over the past couple of years but never took photos or posted any of them.

  Here they are showing the fronts and backs:

Set 1:


Set 2:


Set 3:

  Set 3 were the first ones I made. I didn't get too fancy. 

  Here's the Rolodex I found at a local Value Village. Love it! It's from the early '50s, I believe. Even has the original pencil in the pencil slot, and index cards. It was full of blank cards. What a find for only $4!

  This is my new obsession! Give it try if you haven't already. Great way to save your favourite paper if it's been discontinued. You could even put family photos on them 

  Here's the die I purchased, just in case I run out of cards that came with the machine. I have 3 Rolodexes in total. Sizzix calls it, Cards, Telephone & Address card dies:

  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a great summer! Lots of sunshine here this week! Hope you have time to get inky!

Altered Rolodex Cards

  Happy Canada Day 
to all my family and friends! 
The big 150! 

  Having a great day in my craft room. We have next week off too!

  Made 3 more "Rolo" or Rolodex cards. I made the moustache fella a few weeks ago. Lots of fun! Using stamps and I haven't used before! (I know, eh?!), some favourite papers, and bling!

  Here are the backs. I decided not to decorate the backs too much, like I have done with previous cards.

Here they are individually:

  Love making these! If you haven't tried altering Rolodex cards, give it a go! Great way to use up scrap, small stamps, and embellies!

Entering in:
Simon Says: Anything Goes - Simon Wednesday Challenge

  Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
