Just For Fun Challenge

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. I want to show you a card I made for this month's Just For Fun challenge. The theme is to use more than one stamp. On my card I used the Collaged Row Houses and the 2 Sided Doodle Background/Frame sm. stamps.

First I stamped the Doodle background stamp to use as a moon. I then rubbed a little Micro Glaze over it to use as a resist. Next I patted Distress Oxide ink pads on my craft mat, spritzed them with water and dragged the watercolor paper through the inks. When the ink was dry I spritzed the background with water to show splatters. The Micro Glaze resisted the inks and stayed white. 

I stamped the Houses stamp on various colors of card stock and cut them out to add to the card. The saying is from the Sentiments 3 unmounted sheet.

I hope you will join us in the challenge. We would love to see your creations and you might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Garden Pots

Hi! I am sharing a card I made using the Windowsill Garden Pots stamp from Just For Fun Stamps. I am not much of a gardener, but I love flowers. I have taken to planting my annuals in pots. For me they are easier to plant this way and to keep alive!

For the background on this card I used two different green patterned papers and the top one was also embossed with an embossing folder. I stamped the image on white card stock and cut it out using the Gina Marie Stitched Oval die. I colored the pots with Spectrum Noir alcohol inks. I added Flower Soft to the flowers and used Diamond Glaze on the middle pot. The saying is from the Sentiments 1 unmounted sheet.

You still have time to join this month's challenge. The theme is flowers. You might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Have a great day!

Sabby Chic #8

Hi and welcome to my blog! The saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers." Today I made my shabby chic card with lots of flowers. I really love the month of May. Here in South Carolina, May is our best "summer" month because it is warm and not so humid as later in the summer.

I found the white frame in my stash cut from a Spellbinders die. I tore several different patterned papers and adhered them behind the frame. I used a Tim Holtz die to cut out the left corner of the card and then I added some of the designs back in a few areas. The Tim Holtz bird was also in my stash and I pop dotted it to the card. I added flowers and Heartfelt Creations stamped leaves. The Happy Birthday stamp is from Stampendous.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

I Scream For Ice Cream!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. This is such a cute House Mouse stamp with the bunnies eating ice cream. I see that one has already had his fill! Ice cream is my all time favorite dessert! I eat it even during the cold winter. Strawberry season is just about here in my area so wouldn't strawberry homemade ice cream be a wonderful treat?

I used two different patterned papers for my background and added ribbons and a punched butterfly. The image was colored using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I cut the image out using the Spellbinders Labels 4 die. I also added parts of Heartfelt Creations Raindrops On Roses die at the corners of the image.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

A Rose is a Rose ........

Hello! Welcome to my blog. I want to show you a card featuring this beautiful rose stamp by Just For Fun Stamps. My dad had a beautiful rose garden for many years. He really babied them and we had such gorgeous roses from his labor. However, I am not one that is good with plants, so I am glad there are now Knock Out roses that I don't have to care for as much! LOL!

The background on this card is rose patterned paper that I layered onto a dotted patterned paper. I also used the dotted paper to punch the border. I stamped and fussy cut the Notebook Scrap and then I stamped the Long Script stamp on it. The rose was colored with colored pencils and Gamsol and also fussy cut. Everything was put together on a white card base and then the edges were sponged with brown Distress ink.

We would love for you to join in this month's challenge. The theme for this challenge is flowers. We would love to see what you make!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Shabby Chic #7

Hi and welcome to my blog. I am back with another shabby chic card today. I went into my button bin and used several on this card. The rose is also a button! The embossed background was already in my stash and white perfect pearls was brushed over it after applying versa mark ink. I used the same ribbon on the hat as I did to make the bow. Lacy stickers were adhered on the back of the first layer. The girl stamp is from Inkadinkado and the definition stamp is from Sparkle N Sprinkle. The Paris stamp is unknown.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
