stay cool


Hello.  Playing in a few challenges today.  Started off using this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.


The sketch looked to me like a jeans pocket, so that is what I went with. Of course, I had to distress it.  I started with some navy white core cardstock from DCWV and then used a small skinny oval die from My favorite Things to cut the holes. Then scratched it up with a sanding block and distressed the edges. Also used a dot border die on the edges and then went over it with a white gel pen.

The felt flowers were from my stash that I got from Ribbons and bow oh my, ages ago. They're kind of teenage girlie so that works for the TGIF Challenge.

The stay cool sentiment stamp is from Studio G. I used a strip of silver glitter washi tape and a small heart die to cut out hearts and added them onto the pocket to add some bling.

That it for now, thanks for stopping in.

Vintage is totally cool

Hello. Playing in the one layer card challenge over at Less is More. They're looking for Vehicles this time around.



The old car stamp is from the former Angel Company. I stamped it in Versafine ink, then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Colored with Copic's. I used a Studio G silver metallic marker for the chrome on the car.

Sentiments are from Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping in.

Celebrate

Hello. Playing in the sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches today, where they are celebrating #300!  Congrats! Here is what I did with the sketch below.


The "celebrate" die is from Tim Holtz Sizzix thinlits.  I cut it out three times and layered them so that it stands out on the card.  I took the heart stubby from Stamps by Judith and stamped it three time under that to match the designer paper. Stamped three of them on the inside too, but you can only see two in the photo.

The striped designer is from My Favorite Things and the hears are from Ms. Sparkle & Co. Dusted off my oval nestabilities for this one.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping in.

Masculine thank you

Hello. I've been so busy doing projects around the house that I've been missing in action with my stamping blog. Sorry about that.  Here is a masculine thank you card that I created following this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.


I just picked up the Diamonds background stamp from Papertrey, Ink and put it to use on the left side panels. I used Versamark, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I took some Oxide inks to color them up a bit. Thank you sentiment stamp is from Simon Say Stamp.

I used the black Kuretake watercolor pot and loaded up my paint brush to create the splatter in the background. I totally ruined a good tank top doing this, too. Oh well, what we do for art, huh?

Speaking of splatter, Simon Says Stamps challenge this week is splatter, so entering this into the mix.

Thanks for stopping by.
