I have been inspired by my friend Hettie to play along with Rudolph Day every month. It is were you create Christmas related cards and such on the 25th of each month. It feels nice to get a head start.
I hope you enjoy your weekend!
Hello! Here is my second set of cards using all scraps, inks and paints. These all use Graphic 45 images from the Le Romantique and Boardwalk collections.
Thank you for looking.
Hello, everyone. I decided to make a few packs of handmade cards for Christmas gifts. They will be for teachers or grandparents. I am currently undecided. I used ALL scraps from my desk and leftover bins. I know awesome, right?
They took a bit of time to make even though they are simple. I am pleased with the outcome. I will share the second set sometime soon.
Hey everyone! I bettcha all thought I died. Its been about 2 weeks since my last post. I haven’t done much crafting (maybe 2 days) during that time so that is why I have been silent. I got some good crafty time in today so I will have some new things to share later this week.
I love the Christmas sentiment on this card from the Chalkboard Christmas plate by Artistic Outpost. I layered some papers and added a tin pin. Easy but I like it.
Don’t forget to check out the store at Artistic Outpost. They are having a 15% sale on all stamps through November 18th. To get the coupon code visit the AO Blog. Get started on your Christmas shopping.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Happy Wednesday! October is almost over. I can’t believe it! Pretty soon I am going to have to start Christmas projects. Thank you for all of your kind comments and understanding while I have taken a bloggy/crafty break.
Here is a card using Artistic Outpost stamp plate Hayride. I love that vine stamp. It is embossed in black. I added some stickled flowers to embellish the vine. I used spray and gesso in the background. The flourish stamp is from the Serenity stamp plate. Lastly, I sprayed and heated tulle around the edges until it crinkled and melted down.
Have a great day! Thank you for coming by.
Can you believe it? I had some crafty time this morning!! It has been a few weeks since I have been able to create due to sleep problems. Naps are awesome but have been taking up most of my free time!
My card was inspired by Joanne Wardle’s Challenge over at Paper Artsy. Her first challenge was a card on which she used a die cut to make a window. I made the front of the card and then used a circle die to cut out the center. I stamped my new Lynne Perrella stamp onto cardstock and colored it in. The sentiment is also from Paper Artsy.
Thanks for stopping by and welcome to all my new followers. I hope things will start to pick up as I have more free time. Enjoy your weekend!
A card for Artistic Outpost using the new Hayride stamp plate. My background is pretty simple. I tore some cardstock and stamped the girl image and then again to use as a mask. I then stamped over top the mask with the script and vines. I am loving this new stamp set. Enjoy your day!
Hello! I feel I have been gone too long. I have not been spending any time in my craft room. It has been over a week! I miss it but have needed a little break. Thanks for sticking with me. I am hoping to get back to creating this week.
I made this oversized card, inspired by The Gentleman Crafter, for Artistic Outpost. It features the new chalkboard wisdom and Chalk it up stamp plates.
This card was a lot of fun. I practiced my layering in the background. Lots of different stamps and such.
Here is the inside. Thank you for stopping. Enjoy your remaining weekend.
This was a Father’s Day card that I made for the men in our family. I know, I am a bit late showing. The stamp plate is the fabulous Generation Redux by Artistic Outpost. Stop by and see all their vintage style stamps. I am having a crazy busy day as I prep for camping so I got to run. Later!
Hi everyone! We have been away this week so that is why I am a bit behind with posts. This cabinet card is made using stamps from the Serenity and Boardwalk stamp plates by Artistic Outpost.
I stamped my boardwalk images in black and embossed the flowers.
I used distress paints and a blue ink spray in the background and embossed my stamped flowers in white. I layered a few die cuts and added a bright flower.
And here is a full view of the inside.
Thank you for all your kind comments on my Asian box. Have a great weekend.
Another card using the Boardwalk stamp plate by Artistic Outpost. I love these two images. My background is TH paper that has been painted and layered with some book paper. The images were colored using Distress Markers and backed with black cardstock. A few flowers and embellies using the stamp set and the card is complete.
Thank you all for looking.
I made a pop-up card featuring the Artistic Outpost stamp plate Hero. This is my take on the Americana theme. I started off with some Tim Holtz paper. I used distress paints and stamping in the background. I layered a few stamped images and such. I tried to keep the front simple.
For the inside background I used a star stencil and layed down molding paste. I then painted over the background with distress paints. I used a pop-up die cut and layered a few stamped pieces on top and then my main stamped image. I love this cute little boy saluting.
