Monday: Walk on the Dark Side

This was a tough challenge, I don't own much halloween or Tim Holtz products..I am not a "distress type stamper, I like clean and simple..but I did use distress inks for this card, also used Simon Says Stamp Star medallion stencil and the saying is from Tim Holtz...so I did pretty good!
Hope you like it!
See you tomorrow for Wednesday's challenge!

I recently picked up this stamp with rainboots, not something I would normally go for...but it was just so darn cute!

Hope your wednesday is not too rainy..but if it is... this card has just the right saying:

I just love this beautiful wine card..I added a cute little metal corkscrew and now it is the perfect card for Metal monday! Enjoy!

Wednesday challenge! Pop it up!

I made this little pop up coffee cup holder for a friends birthday....you can buy the cups and lids at a target, grocery store, online, etc...I got a pack of 12 for 3.50 at target. 12oz cups with lids.

Will make cute gifts for the coffee lover you know...you can fill the cups with coffee candy, gift cards etc.....

I had to modify my pop up holder because the cups I have are bigger then the ones in Dawn's video I found on youtube, but it is a basic pattern and easy to enlarge if necessary. Here is the link to her video: https://youtu.be/1Yyo-qz-bWs

Happy card making, stamping, scrapbooking today!

Distress This! Oh Boy!!!

I am so happy for today's challenge! It is distress time!
I just bought all of the little distress ink pads from ranger and started playing with them....
I was never a messy crafter, I like things clean and simple but I always loved the look of the distress backgrounds and altered stuff people made, but I just hated getting my hands dirty....

But after watching all the youtube videos of stampers inking their backgrounds and not getting all messy, I thought, hey, let me give this a try!

I used the Hero Arts Octopus stamp and went to town making a shaker card, I did get my hands a little inky but I am so happy I gave this a try! I then went on to make a gift for my sister, doing the mixed media stuff....Hey this is kinda fun!!

Not too shabby for a distress beginner!
Happy Monday!!

Summer Sunshine!

I love summer and sunshine...so this is a great challenge for me, I do not know the name of the stamp as I removed many of my stamps from wood and never got around to writing the names down, sorry about that, I am sure you can find it out with a search on the internet for sun stamps, I think it was stampin up for some reason??

Anyway, the sun is colored with pearl ex and fine glitter was applied for sparkle and shimmer, then it was just a matter of layering and embellishing, hope you like it!

Stencil Monday Challange

I don't own any stencils, but I did make this card and it reminds me of a stencil, you could certainly use a feather stencil and get the same effect.....I used a feather die cut, then embossed the feather part after it was cut....then I colored some blues and layered the cut out portion over the colors, then layered on the embossed feather....I think it came out real nice!!

Happy Monday!!!

Wednesday- Emboss

Embossing is stamping and then sprinkling emboss powder on and heating so it turns to a raised image..it's fun but messy...I don't usually like it...but now I can emboss an outlined image and then I get to color it!
Took these cats embossed, cut out, colored and put on a card....I kinda like embossing now!!!
Have a happy Wednesday!!!
