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!
I started this journal cover 2-3 years ago. It looked fabulous (or so I thought at the time) until my 2 year old snuck into my craft room and sprayed water all over my cover. It sat in my ‘projects to be completed’ bin until recently.
The back is chipboard and I used sprays and inks with gear masks by Tim Holtz. I stamped the background using Oxford Impressions script stamps. I cut out the TH gears, distressed them and added some crackle paint. I layered them under my stamped image from Lost Coast Designs. Simple but effective. I hope you enjoy.
I’ll do my best to post a few more times this week. We have Vacation Bible School at our church every night until Friday so it will be a bit busy. The kids have a blast and my hubby is in all the skits and having way too much fun acting like a super hero! Happy Monday.
Can you believe it is blog hop time again? These months are passing crazy fast! This month at Artistic Outpost we are celebrating Christmas in July.
I chose the Paper Boy girls for my focal point. My base is a brown paper bag. I layered strips of torn paper in the background and used a bit of gesso over the top. My background stamping is from the Ephemera Backgrounds stamp plate. I used my new die to frame my stamped images. I finished it off by adding some pointsettias.
Hop along to the rest of the Design Team to see their amazing creations.
Kate- you are here
I made this little mini featuring the Paper Boy stamp plate by Artistic Outpost. I also used the Serenity stamp plate for the embossed areas and the Ephemera Backgrounds for the background. My main image was colored using distress markers. Bits of paper, ephemera and lace were added to the cover and ribbon to the twine.
Sorry I was silent for a week. I was away and have needed a bit of extra recovery time. I appologize I haven’t made it to your blogs lately. I will catch up with you all as soon as I can. Have a great evening.
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.
