Clearly In Love

Happy Valentine’s Day, Love Birds! :)

I actually am not a fan of “fake” holidays like this, but what the heck…gives me an opportunity to make another themed card, right? And this one is super cool. I was asked by by super, duper awesomely sweet friend Tiffany Johnson of iheartart to make a card for her Mix-Ability Challenge on SplitcoastStampers (Clear Love). And when Tiff asks? I say “yes!”

I wanted to make my card Valentine-y, but have her Mixed Media theme in mind of using all things CLEAR. I chose to use Wendy Vecchi‘s Clearly for Art Modeling Film. This stuff is amazing to work with. It’s thicker than acetate, but takes alcohol inks like a DREAM. Here’s the card and then I’l explain my process a little:

I used a steel rule die and some smaller thin dies (run through my die cutting machine with a metal shim several times) to cut the film.  I colored the pieces with varying shades of alcohol inks and glued them together with a very sturdy glue.

The little piece at the top is a free-form heart. Which means that it kinda *boings* around. Pretty fun! I cut a thin strip of the modeling film and glued it to the back of the banner hearts and the small heart to accomplish this. I thought it was a fun touch. :)

The whole card has tons of dimension and is super shiny. There’s lots of glitter, glimmer, and color on this. Clearly.

Wishing you all a a VERY Happy Valentine’s Day. From Millan.Net

 

PS – will update with products later. :)

Moxie Fab Thanks!

You have reached my stop on one of the most amaaaaazing blog hops ever – A blog hop to say Thank You to Cath Edvalson and her Moxie Fab self for 8 1/2 years of awesomeness. You should have come to my blog from Laura O”Donnell’s blog HERE.

Moxie Fab Banner 4 (1)

What can I say that hasn’t already been said about one of the most influential, fun, awesome, amazing, talented, fun (did I say that already? lol!!), and absolutely one of the sweetest women in all of craftendom (yes, I just made up a word).

Now, I’m going to say that I’m one of THOSE people who has never been published. I’m not famous. No one has ever heard of me, well except for a small few of you…but I’m okay with that. (Or at least my therapist says to keep telling myself that.)  But, that being said Cath has always made it a point to give me words of encouragement. She’s said “hi” and chatted at events that I’ve been fortunate enough to attend.  And even when I tried my hand at her beloved Moxie Fab challenges her comments always made me smile – even though I didn’t win.  She’s just THAT sweet! You all know what I mean. ♥ The woman  oozes awesomeness!

When she announced in her column Moxie Fab World that she’d be stepping away from PaperCrafts mag and her role on the editorial team, my heart dropped. But, moving on means change and change can be exciting and wonderful. And I sure do wish Cath all things wonderful, exciting, happy, and full of all the love that she’s shared with the papercrafting community for the past 8 1/2 years. Dearest Cath, we will ALL miss you in this papercrafting community, but we wish you love in wherever life takes you.

MoxieThanks

Now that you’ve seen (and read) my personal tribute to the amazing Cath, you’ll want to make sure to  go to the next stop on this FABULOUS hop to my sweet, wonderful, and insanely talented friend, LAURA BASSEN .  (◄–click)

Here is the MASSIVE link love of all those hopping today and sharing our tributes to Cath. I’m stop #56, so feel free to start back at the top if you get lost or move on from here to Laura’s as linked above. (she’s awesome).  :)
