Carved Flowers Journal Pages by Marjie Kemper using DDRS111 Darkroom Door Stamps.
These rubber stamps are known for their durability and retain the highest image detail with these photographic designs.
As I looked through all these new dies, texture plates, and other tempting products, one particular item had my name written all over it – the new die template Cogs. Oh yeah. I knew these would be the ones I would use first. But wait. What is this?!?! Spellbinders is launching a new line of mixed media products called Media Mixáge! I’d been given the new Grate Works Three texture plate! And what?? Sheets of aluminum metal?!?! It just kept getting better and better.
Having chosen my main components I took a deep breath and entered mixed media heaven. When I finally came up for air, as if by magic, this appeared:

Coffee and Dark Brown Cardstock
A5 White scored card.
Take a piece of the Manilla Cardstock, cut to 5 ½” x 8”, using the Ink Blending Tool, pick up some Stormy Sky ink and blend across the top of the cardstock. Across the centre, do the same again using Frayey Burlap ink. Then across the bottom use Pine Needles ink.
Using the tree stamp from the Andy Skinner set, ink up in Tea Dye ink and stamp to the right hand side of the cardstock. Do the same again using Walnut Stain ink on the left hand side. Finally, using the Archival Black inkpad, stamp the tree onto the centre of your card. Then using the small branches and flowers from the Andy Skinner stamp set, ink these up in Walnut Stain ink, stamp along the bottom and go over with Tea Dye ink doing the same again ~ this creates depth on your card. Ink up the flying birds from the stamp set in Walnut Stain ink, stamp across the top of the trees.
Take your Walnut stain ink pad and gently add some of this ink around the edges of your card, this creates a burnished look. Mat and layer this onto the coffee cardstock then onto the brown cardstock and finally adhere to your A5 card.
Using a manilla tag, ink up the tree stamp using Walnut Stain ink on the left hand side, being careful to stamp only part of the image and as you will be using an acrylic block, you can match where the branches are to get an exact impression. Do the same again using Tea Dye ink and stamp to the right hand side of the tag ~ again only stamping part of this image. Finally, ink up the tree using the Archival Black ink and stamp in the lower centre of the tag. Ink the edges of your tag using Walnut Stain ink for a burnished look.
Take a small piece of manilla cardstock and ink up using various colours of distress inkpads, blend with your applicator too. Then using the Barn Door red ink pad, ink up the words “Always Follow Your Heart’ and stamp onto this. Use some Walnut stain ink to darken the edges of your cardstock.
Take a small length of the ribbon, swipe the Barn Door ink pad across this to colour it red. You must allow time for this to dry.
When dry, stretch across your tag and staple the ribbon onto your tag. Attach your stamped words with a staple and your done!

Create a card, Tree ornament and a Triptyke keepsake with a Dickensian feel for Christmas.
From Teresa: I have used the very imposing Buckingham Palace image from the Photochips pack for this monochromatic card. There are a couple of shapes cut with Nestabilities under the words. I reckon this would make a great dinner invitation - "Come dressed for dinner with the Queen. No riff raff!" LOL.
From Teresa: Here I've stamped the Santa image and 25 Dec from the new Dear Santa set using Midnight Blue StazOn ink.
I have placed this image over some corrugated cardboard, and attached various trims and a brad from My Mind's Eye. The patterned paper is Graphic45. The Santa image is perfect for achieving a vintage look.

For this card I've used Alcohol Inks for the background, then stamped the image over the top with Archival Jet Black inkpad. The quote was stamped and stapled to the torn tag and adhered to the card with foam adhesive. I've also used the postmark stamp on the actual folded card just to give it some extra detail.
