Christine: Tin Type!

Hi Quick Quotes fans! 

I'm Christine and I'm so excited to be debuting here today!  You'll quickly learn a couple things about me:  I love to fussy cut and love to think outside of the box.  You'll find both of these to be true as I share to cards with you today! 

The Tin Type collection has a lot of really unique elements to it.  The hot air balloons kept jumping out at me and screaming to be fussy cut.  I fussy cut them and started playing with them and ended up turning them into flowers.  To create them I cut out the balloons and inked the edges. I then curled the balloons to make them look like petals and put them all together to form a flower.

I had fun playing with the Die Cut Chipboard (Gears Bag O' Chips & Butterflies Bag O' Chips) and Powderpuff Chalking Inks (Blue Hawaiian, Amaretto, and Baja Blue).  This chipboard takes those inks fabulously! 

I used several papers from the Tin Type line.  I love to do clusters of embellishments and had fun pulling these together.  Other Supplies Used: Bakers Twine from The Twinery, Staples, Toothpick

For my second card I fussy cut both flourishes and hot air balloons from the Tin Type line.  I used the Frames Bag o Chips for my frame and left it raw...it just worked that way!  I kept this card pretty clean and simple adding in just a little doodling to break up some of the white space.  
Other Supplies used:  Bakers Twine from The Twinery, White cardstock and button from my stash

I hope you've enjoyed the projects today, I'll be looking forward to next time!
