Reel In Your Birthday

Here is a card I made for my uncle who likes to fish. I am still into my Steam punk silver and gold coloring and loved this image from Doodle Pantry. I used the stained resist technique from the TJ newsletter (April 2013). 

I am entering it into the Doodle Pantry monthly challenge and the Color Me Creative Classroom "Anything Goes". 



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Simple Frames

Sometimes you need a quick and easy card and this is it.  It's called "Simple Frames" from the TJ Newsletter.  I just love the simple look of it.  There are so many different ways to use this technique. 

Stamps:  Marks Finest Paper's

 
I am trying to do some cards up for my mom for her stash so she has some nice cards to give to people she loves.

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty day!

Happy Grandparents Day!

I created this card for my husbands Nana.  She really likes monkeys.  I had these digital stamps from Doodle Dragon Designs and thought they would be perfect. 

The card is from the Technique Junkies Fancy Folds and Motion CD called "Short Graduated Accordion".

Here is what it looks like opened up!


 
 
I am taking a new class over at the Color Me Creative classroom called Creative Backgrounds. I have done a marbleized background on each of the images.  Here are some up close pictures.  Hopefully you can see it on these scans. They are really beautiful IRL.
 
 
 
 
 
Nana really liked the card and I really enjoyed this new technique. 
 
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a crafty Sunday!

Glazed Shaving Cream Shapes

I made this card using the technique junkies "Glazed Shaving Cream Shapes".  Such an easy technique...  I used some leftover backgrounds that I had in my stash that used the shaving cream technique.  I saw a card on pinterest that I liked and decided to do something similar.  This would be a great anniversary card, nice to have on hand.
 

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty day!

Crafting Basket with Distressed Rainbow Strips

Happy Sunday!  Well the weather has been wonderful for this labor day weekend.  I actually have taken a couple of extra days off as well.  Unfortunately came down with a cold on Friday.  Hit me like a ton of bricks.  Luckily I spent most of yesterday in my craft room catching up on some upcoming projects that you will be luckily enough to see over the next couple of weeks.

Anyway, let's get on with today's project. 

I used the technique junkies technique called "Distressed Rainbow Strips".  The basket and craft goodies is from Gina K Designs, the checkered background is from Impression Obsession and the sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers. 

I used the same distress inks that I used on the background to color the craft basket.  I like using my distress inks as watercolors, it takes some time and patience but it is well worth it.  I like when my projects color coordinate. 

 
 
Hope you have a happy and safe holiday weekend.  Have a crafty day!
