Going to the Chapel

DSC_0047

Here I went again using some patterned paper, I have some seriously ancient paper pads in my stash. This is an old DCWV paper pad, I have had it for ages, all the patterned paper and the flocked flower stickers came from that paper pad. (I can not remember the name of the pad if you would like to know just leave me a comment and I will find the name of it for you.

DSC_0049I really did love those flocked flowers, and I think they look very classic on this card. I also used red and black cardstock (I believe they are Bazzil Cardshoppe cardstock) just to add to the richness of the card.

The sentiment was embossed with black embossing powder and the stamp it’s self is a CC Designs set called Wedding Labels.

Graphic 45 Birthday card

DSC_0066

So a while ago I was thinking about how I have been been making so many cards lately, but yet I have used virtually no patterned paper. If you know me at all through twitter, or when I use to do Ustream shows, you would know that I have a ridiculous amount of patterned paper. So I went digging and pulled out some of my old patterned paper, this is a graphic 45 8×8 pad, I can’t remember off hand what collectons I used, but if you really want to know I will dig around and find out for you.

DSC_0067I did a bunch of different layers of paper on here, I used the small banner punch for the banner along the top, the lace punch along the bottom is a Martha Stewart punch.

Making this card, reminded me why I love patterned paper, the simplicity of using nothing but patterned paper and a simple Happy Birthday stamp set. I guess that means I need to keep making more cards and try and get through some of the paper I have, that should only take me 5-10 years haha!

Oh, Hello There

DSC_0069

 

Hey everyone, back with another card! This time it is from the Simon Says Stamp September Card kit. I really loved the stamp set that came with this kit, all the individual book stamps, as well as other elements, and the shelves themselves.

I used various ink colours, some from Simon Says stamp, Hero Arts Shadow Ink, and the Prima chalk inks. (sorry I did not keep track of what colours)

Its a very simple looking card, that has a ton of stamping in it.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look

R.I.P Dear Vagabond

Well the other day I was using my beloved die cutting machine. and quit working with a die half way through it. I eventually got the die out, the machine will move about 1/4 inch every 5 or so minutes. 

The unfortunate part is that I have had my machine for about 3 years, therefore no warranty left of it, so I am out of luck with it. It was a wonderful run, I loved that machine. I do believe it should have lasted longer then it did, but there is nothing I can do about it.

So for the time being, till I buy myself a Big Shot or a Cuttlebug or something more portable, I will give my Accucut Grandemark some serious love. It needs it anyway. So happy I have that larger machine.  

Thanks for stopping by, 

Will be back with a new card for you all tomorrow

Sunflower’s and watercolor

DSC_0075

 

Here is a fun little watercolour card I made, I used a sunflower stamp, I have no idea who makes it, it is actually for doing pottery. I embossed with white embossing powder and coloured it, in a watercolour fashion, using distress inks. (mustard seed, wild honey, dried marigold, ripe persimmon, crushed olive, and peeled paint).

I then added splatters on the background with mustard seed, and ripe persimmon. it is layered on a terracotta orange cardstock base with a chocolate brown mat (not sure whose card stocks they are probably Paper Trey Ink).

The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Set called Birthday Messages 3×4, and is stamped in Wendi Vecchi Archival Ink in the colour Potting Soil

Hey Girl

Here is a fun quick and simple card I made this afternoon, using come Faber-Castell Gelato’s and some Pink Paisley Die cuts and vellum.

A close up of the center of the card, I love this little trick, left over die cuts that are white on the back, you love the shape but not the pattern anymore, flip them over, use the white side, and love them again!

Hey everyone I am here today to share a layout with you all, this is a little bit different of a share from me, you all usually get to see cards I make and things of that nature. But, I am also an active scrapbooker and Project Lifer, I have decided that once in a while I will start sharing layouts, or PL pages with you on my blog. Don’t worry it wont be as frequent as cards, and now that summer is coming to an end my blog will be alot more active.  I am not going to explain a lot about this layout as there is a video for this layout.
