Framed Reindeer

A rustic, artsy and grungy card is ahead!

This is a card to send to my woodsy, rustic friends.

To start the white panel, using acrylic paint and my finger, four smearsm went down the panel.  While this was drying, the frame was cut using the Camping Out Cricut cartridge.  The reindeer was stamped and colored.  Then, I asked myself...why didn't you buy the matching CUTploration?  So, yes, it is cut out with scissors.  The coordinating die has been ordered though! Grunge was stamped on the card.





Another card was made using red, brown and black.


And some plaid paper.


Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!

Santa

Ho, Ho, Ho...time to make a Christmas card.  My son is going on a band trip to Chicago and we needed a fundraiser to get him there.  The class has been selling pumpkins, now they are selling fruit and I thought a card camp fundraiser would be the perfect way to help!

Because there will be people who have not made cards before and we will be on a time frame, it is keep it simple and cute.



Now, it is off to cut paper and get ready for the event!

My Best Friend

The sentiment  on this card from a dog's point of view makes me giggle!  Perhaps this is why we should have a dog!!

Because the sentiment is bulky, the design was kept to one side of the card.


Have a doggone good day!

Song Birds

 I was told once when I was going through a rough time, rember the tea pot...even though it is up to its neck in hot water...it still sings!

This sentiment is perfect for thinking about that friend that just needs a little pick me up!

The background is distress spray through a stencil.  The birds are cut from a STAMPlorations die.  The sentiment is in the coordinating stamp set.

Set Your Soul On Fire




This typografia stamp was so much fun to create with.  Flames were embossed in the bard base and color was added until the fire looked  smoking hot.  The fire looks like a bonfire on steroids!  The black striped paper defined the layers.

Spoiled Rotten


Heavy metal in a feminine way!

There is gold everywhere on this card!  The background was embossed with gold, the lipstick tubes are gold and the sentiment is embossed with gold...can there  ever be enough  gold?

I have had this stamp stored away in my going to use this box and  have never thought of a card to make with it. I used foam to pop up the sentiment circle. This card was so much fun  to make and I know exactly who it is getting mailed to!

Skellifun

Oh man...I wish my bones flexed as much as this jammin skeleton's did!  This looks like total Skellifun!

Using just black and white seemed like the perfect color combo. Shimmer was added to the skeleton, black splatters and black strip.  I think young teens would get a kick out of this card.

Spooktacular


Shery from STAMPlorations has given us this spooktacular image to download and use. 

Using gelatos the orange smears were added.  Mustard Seed distress spray dripped from the end of the sprayer added some splatters.  Then, black ink was stenciled on to add the swirls and stars and numbers were stamped.   After printing the image, it was colored.  The black spider web frame was cut on the cricut.  The sentiment was embossed on black paper and this spooktacular card was complete!

Happy Fall

Carmel Apples, leaves crunching under your feet, scarecrows and a trip to the pumpkin patch to pick out that perfect pumpkin for carving are the joys of fall.  I also like putting on the hoodie and watching the leaves burst with color.  Yes, I think fall is my favorite season of all!

After running the card base through an embossing folder, versa mark was applied.  Gold embossing powder was spread on and heat set.  The scarecrow was colored on the  inside of the card.



Have a great  day!

Foiled

Are you looking for a fun way to make cards?  This is like the Trix rebbit that magically appears. An image was printed on cardstock using laser  print ink.  A piece of foil was placed on  the printed part and it was sent through the laminator.  When the foil was  pulled  back, the image retained the foil.

The base of  the card was embossed.   The image piece  was layered with silver cardstock and magically your card is finished.

BackTo School

It is official, the start of this school year is August 31st.  The chatter of each student greeting each other in the halls is imminent!  I have a junior this year and he has the notebooks and pencils ready to go.  Just waiting for the yellow bus to appear...but  he has reminded me...one more week of sleeping in!

This card used the acrylic block stamping technique.  The pencil was made with Copics and a strip of paper.

Peace ATC

With everything going on all over the world these days, we need a little peace!  Everytime I see the peace sign in jewlry, I buy it...don't ask me why.  Perhaps it reminds me of the tie dye and peace emblems from my childhood.

After making the background, a stencil was used.  Paint was applied to  the A  and it was stamped.  The rest  of the  word  was stamped  and silver  thread and a peace charm was added.




Wishing you a peaceful day.

Sending You Love

Sending you love and lots of it!!  I have not made an ATC and this was fun!  There is just a little space to work with  and  you need to  plan your design before you begin!

I used an envelope stamp that had a heart and began stamping and masking to fill the space.  The love embellishment had been sticking to everything on my workspace and needed a permenant home!!

Adjust Your Sails

The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist expects it to change, the realist adjusts the sails~Sam Arthur Ward

What a great quote for a nautical card!

After stamping and masking the ship, a stencil and circle template add the background sun.  Two sails were fussy cut and popped up. Afew waves of water and sentiment complete the card.

Just For You

Scrafting weekend with family is so much fun.  It is a time to catch up on what is going on in their families lives, laugh and create.  We also get to use their crafty supply goodies!

This background die adds texture and fun to the background.  A few die cuts dipped in purple oxide and the background square with some green oxide makes a very simple card.

Galaxy

This weekend, the Color Bursts and white paint created this galaxy background.  It amazes me to see the Color Burst in action spreading across the paper.  When you add colors you never know what the finished look will be.

The space ship was colored with Copic markers.
