Cottage Chairs

Today I inked up three stamps. One is a favorite sentiment from Petite Pairs, the other two had never been inked. The cottage chairs are from Unity Stamps and the background is from the new Work of Art set from Stampin Up.  My inspiration came from my friend's gallery on Splitcoast Stampers. Here is Trish's card I really loved the layout, changed the shapes and left off the ribbon as this card was mailed to by brother for his birthday. I could not locate my piercing tool in my crafting mess, I really like that look of the added texture around the oval that Trish used.

And here's my card for today...

Retro Sketches 108

Back again with another birthday card. This one is for our middle nephew. 
I used some Heidi Swapp specialty card stock sprayed it with her color shine in mustard color. On e that was dry I mounted the slate grey paper and stamped the happy birthday in lagoon  on white. My newest favorite is the shimmer trim from Close to my Heart. This card features the teal, is so sparkly and is pretty sticky on the back. I think I just need black to complete my collection. :)

The layout for this card comes from Retro Sketches 108

Alcohol inks!

Here are a couple of cards I made after attending a tag class with Chelsey at Personal Touch Scrapbooking. One of the tags was using alcohol inks on glossy paper to create beautiful backgrounds. 

I used Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks (Eggplant, Pool, Silver) and the blending solution to create the soft spot for the sentiment. Stamps used were random stamps from Unity Stamps Co.

Christmas Canvas for the kids

I love mixed media, it was so much for to create this canvas for my daughters bedroom door with her talented "help" Keep in mind she's 4. lol. Her imaginary friend is Peso the Penguin and when I found this patterned paper at Giggles and Scribbles I knew I had to buy it for her. The penguin is cut out from my cricut machine using the cartridge Create a Critter 2. I used up so glitter paper that I have been collecting (not hoarding) With her help we have a few bubbles under the DSP but that's ok with me because it adds charater.

And here's the canvas for our son's bedroom door. He's 2 years old and LOVES neigh-neighs! Anything that resembles a horse is a neigh-neigh, lol. This reindeer is also cut off the Create a Critter 2 cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by today. I love hearing from other crafters and seeing your work too. So if you happen to comment I'll be sure to visit your blog as well.

Merry Monday #83

This weeks challenge over at Merry Monday is to use strips, red, chocolate brown with stars or hearts. I had so many ideas but had a hard time with the stars or hearts part of the challenge... Here's what I came up with...

Used a candy cane embossing folder on real red cs, edgelit on the ivory with red twine and a chipboard star (colored with ink and then cinnamon stickles) The merry and bright stamp comes from Unity Stamps Ocotober kit of the month. Used chalk talk framelits on the ivory and brown tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. I'm off to make lunch for my muchkins and then I'll be back to comment on the cards created.
