It’s Your Bday

Its your bday1

 

Welcome back, I am up with my first card of the year. This sweet little image from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps, was so fun to colour. I decided to go a different way with this image and coloured it using only my Prismacolors. Supplies and colours will be listed at the end of the post.

Its your bday 2

 

Kept this card rather simple with just a little watercolour and a simple black sentiment. A little twine and some enamel dots for embellishing.

Let’s Bake

Cookies

Hey everyone! Christmas is so close, and I am almost ready!! One of the last things I do to prepare is a bunch of baking and this past weekend that included a crazy amount of cookie baking (I think its my sons favorite activity). So here I am scrapbooking a few instagram pictures of the cookies we made on the weekend.

I am a subscriber to the Hip Kit Club scrapbooking kit, and on the member forum on facebook, Kimberly gave us a weekend challenge and this is the layout I did for the challenge. The recipe that needed to be used for the challenge was using an image she posted as inspiration for the layout (that is where my stenciled backround came in to play), include a minimum of three fonts in your title, use stamping on your project (this is difficult to see on my layout but on the bright green paper I stamped falling snow in versamark and embossed it in silver), include gold or silver, and use a minimum of three patterned papers.

It was a challenge for me to make sure I had everything included that is for sure! I rarely follow a recipe or sketch for my layouts, but it was fun to play along!

Hey everyone, did you see Jen’s fantastic card yesterday! If you didn’t you should go back and take a look at it!

For todays card, I kept the cuts real simple, I really wanted to use these Scraptastic Exclusive wood veneers that I got last Christmas, ya I keep things for far to long, I am seriously trying to blow through my stash.

Back to the start of the card I took a piece of Neenah solar white cardstock, and distress ink (I would guess I used salty ocean, broken china, and weathered wood). After that dried I took the Falling Stars Stencil from SSS and Golden light molding paste and applied that to the panel. I attatched that to another peice of Neenah cardstock leaving an 1/8″ boarder.

I then took some gold thread and balled it up and put it behind the round wood veneer, added the banner one for the sentiment on the card. Then I needed a couple larger stars for on top of that banner, and I couldn’t find any wood veneers, seeing as I had been working on cards for this series, it came to me right away. I cut a bunch of the stars to the size I wanted them and layered them all together, using a distress marker around the edge to hide the white, I then embossed them with Hero arts gold embossing powder. I attatched everything to a A2 size Neenah Desert Storm cardbase and called it complete.

For the love of glitter

Distress glitter 1

 

Glitter is such a wonderful thing. Which is still odd for me to stay I was always so opposed to it for so long until I discovered microfine glitter… Then Distress Glitter entered my world and now I love all things that sparkle and shine and make me look like a walking disco.

I started with my favourite Tim Holtz Rays Stencil, using Golden Light Molding Paste through it. I then added the Mustard Seed Distress Glitter to the bottom part of the rays tapping it lightly with my finger to push it into the molding paste, then dumping the excess off. I repeated the same on the top half with Picked Raspberry Distress Glitter.

I then cut a tag using Spellbinders Fancy Frame Tags 3 and coloured it as well as the back panel with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the SSS Birthday Messages stamp set in Versamark ink and embossed it with Hero arts White embossing powder.

I then took Studio Calico Star Burst wood veneer (I can not find a link to these) and painted them with Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry, and Mustard Seed.
