Tattered Angels pairs up with Graphic 45...

Today I have my very first post on the Tattered Angels blog! It felt so wonderful to work with new products...so inspiring. I had many ideas brewing this week and didn't quite know where to start!

The first page I created is this one, "Fairy in Flight". I have been thinking about scrapping these photos of my daughter for a few weeks, but was waiting for the right products to come along. I used Graphic 45's Ode to Joy paper in the background and sprayed it with Suede Glimmer Mist in a few places. It's very subtle but adds a bit of texture and shine!
I love to add dimension to my work and wanted the stamped words to be over the top of the butterfly, so I cut out the acrylic part of the stamped image that comes with the stamp set. You can also stamp onto a transparency and cut it out. I also love to use these to place around my pages when deciding where I'll put the stamp before actually stamping on my page. They are quite handy! (you can make these for all your stamps!) The chipboard butterflies are sprayed with Olive Vine. Lastly, I cut apart the chipboard swirl to get a smaller piece and sprayed it with Suede for the butterfly's "trail". My daughter, Kati who is 4 loves to dress up and pretend! She asked me to take pictures one day of her and her wings.
Supplies used:
Paper: Graphic 45 - Ode to Joy
Glimmer Mist: Suede and Olive Vine
Stamps - large butterfly, words and swirls: Nature in Flight Stamp Set
Chipboard Butterflies: Embossed Glimmer Chips - Nature
Chipboard Swirl: Embossed Glimmer Chips - Regal
Other: Prima flowers, American Crafts Thickers

On the next page, "Let It Snow", I misted over the snowflake stencil with Olive Vine onto creme colored cardstock to go with the Graphic 45 angels die cut. The letters are misted with Suede Glimmer Mist, and I used a chipboard wreath under the frame in the title to add a bit of blue to the page, since my photo had a blue tint to it. I loved the big snowflake and didn't want to cover it up, so I added a smaller photo of my girls making snow angels.
Supplies used:
Paper: Graphic 45 - Let It Snow (stripe), Around the World (black), Christmas Past Tags (angels)
Stencil: Glimmer Screens - Fanciful
Glimmer Mist: Suede and Olive Vine
Alphas/frame: Framed Fonts Glimmer Chips, Regal
Wreath: Frosty Memories Glimmer Chips
, Stamped
Swirls: Nature in Flight Stamp Set
Other: rub on sentiment and chipboard snowflake - Melissa Frances, misc. button and pin.

These are little holiday photo holders that I found at the craft store last year for under a dollar! I sprayed them with Graphite Glimmer Mist, crackled them with crackle paint and creme paint over the top. I used chipboard photo corners and pearls for the garland on one tree and a wreath on the other.
Supplies:
Paper: Graphic 45 - Christmas Past Tags, Jolly Old St. Nicholas
Glimmer Mist: Graphite
Chipboard wreath and photo corners: Glimmer Chips - Frosty Memories
Other: string pearls and tree photo holders- craft supply, whit
e pearls - Melissa Frances,
lace - unknown, creme paint - Delta.

And last but not least, a card which could be used for a fall or holiday card. I sprayed the chipboard with Red Velvet Glimmer Mist and the Family piece with Suede. I punched 1" circles to create large scallops.
Supplies:
Paper: Graphic 45 - Jolly Old St. Nicholas (stripe), Exotic Destinations (compass and circle)
Chipboard: Glimmer Chips - Regal
Glimmer Mist: Red Velvet
Family Memories: Bingo Boards - Family
Other: Ribbon is SEI, pearl is Melissa Frances, lace is Wrights.
