Thanks for stopping by!!

One Crazy Stamper Birthday Challenge

One Crazy Stamper has a birthday card challenge this month and the possibility of being the guest designer for a month.  I have made 2 cards - one with Tim Holtz Techniques.  I used his new stencils, his birthday stamp and his distress paints.  It is the first time I have played with the new stencils.  It was fun to layer all the different colours!!

A Tim Holtz Tag to share!

I love making Tim Holtz's monthly tags. 
However, like all my scrapbooking this summer - I am slowly creeping along with projects! 
This is the tag for March!!  I still have a long way to go but I love how this one turned out.

Summer Card Camp! Week 1 Day 1

I pretty much copied the first card we made in class. I enjoy having the supplies and creating my own.  I changed up the circle that the bee is on and I coloured it differently.  It was fun to pull out the vellum and emboss it.  Love the result, often forget.. The stamps and die cut are all from Simon Says Stamp.  The embossing folder is one of Tim Holtz.

Kraftin Kimmie Challenge

This week's challenge at Kraftin Kimmie is "Guns and Roses" - metal and roses.  Here is a wedding card I created.  The image is from Kraftin Kimmie and coloured with copics. I also used a bit of liquid pearls. The metal is from Tim Holtz.  The flowers are prima and the pp is from Magnolia Stamps.  Thanks for looking!!

Retirement card for a colleague!

I made this card based on a card done in the online card class in the spring.

The stamps are from Hero Arts.

A second card for Kraftin' Kimmie's guest design team place!

Here, I decided to use some grunge and layer a tag and card with Tim Holtz's ink.  From there, I distressed the edges and made 2 of his rosettes with glossy accents on the centres.  The sentiment is stamped on one of his glass tiles in navy staz-on ink.  Using Tim's pp, I die cut his weathered clock and added it behind the tag. I coloured the Kraftin Kimmie image with copics and added some rhinestones on her cap.

This card was coloured with copics, 2 Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, Tim Holtz die for the grass, Kelly Purkey stamps for the sentiment and sun.  Glossy accents and Kaisercraft rhinestones.

Kraftin' Kimmie Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I created this card by airbrushing with copics over a stencil, where I outlined and coloured in some of the areas with a black liner and spica pens.  I coloured Marilyn with copics and the flowers are prima.
The challenge was to use three things on the tic tac toe card - I used blue, gems and flowers.
It was uploaded to SplitCoastStampers and I was picked to be one of the fav's for the week!!
How cool! My first card posted at SCS!!
