News of Spring

Hi everyone! I decided to pull out my ephemera today to play in the challenge over at Simon Says Stamps. The them is "Layer it up", so I did.

I am using some of my new Spring ephemera from the Tim Holtz collection called Layers Botanical along with some additional pieces from K&Company. Here is a closer look.

I created the stain glass using some Lindy's Magicals. They were a lot of fun to work with, but boy did my fingers get dirty.

I finished it off with a sentiment from Graphic 45.

Thanks for stopping by!

MHK Designer inspiration - Bunny Love

Hi everyone and welcome to my Designer inspiration for MHKDesigns.

Today I am sharing with you an image from one of the Easter sets over at MHKDesigns called Bunny Love.

It is available over at the MHKDesigns Etsy shop along with many other wonderful sets.

This card was so simple to make and I was able to play with some of my new "magicals" and some resist paper to create the background. Magicals are a powder substance that when sprayed with water create fun vibrant colors. 

I printed my sentiment onto some vellum paper so that the color would still show through. I love the way this turned out. The simplicity of the white image really goes well with the colorful background. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Create Yourself - Simply Stamps

Hi everyone! I am here today to share with you this altered clip board I made using several of the new idea-olgy releases this year from Tim Holtz along with my personalized stamp "Create Yourself", from Simply Stamps.

As Artists, it sometimes takes us a while to find ourselves. We try all sorts of different mediums until one day it hits us. It may not be overnight, and sometimes it takes a life time, but it is definitely a journey to Create Yourself. 

If you would like to see how I created this Altered Clip Board, I have provided a link to my You Tube channel.

CAS-ual Fridays DT Call

Hi everyone! It has been a while since I have applied for a Design Team, but thought I would give it a go. CAS-ual Fridays challenge team has some openings, so I am applying as well as playing in their current challenge called "Off the edge." 

I created this card using two butterfly stamps from a  Finnabair set called "Rust and Dust."  The grid background is from a Tim Holtz set and the sentiment is from Graphic 45. 

I stamped the images and sentiment using Jet Black Archival Ink and added some color using a Peacock Feathers distress crayon.

The challenge goes on until March 21st. So there is plenty of time to play along.  I hope you like my card and wish me luck on the entry for the design team. 

Thanks for stopping by!
