Hi, well it’s been a long time since I posted anything.  Almost 2 months.  I was just really busy with work thanks to the Mississippi River and then just needed to catch up around the house.  We also laid some sod down so we now have a backyard! Woot, woot! So come on over for a visit!

Anyways, I saw a Tag you’re it and the CAS(e) this Sketch challenge this week and thought I’d give it a go.

make a wish 2 Aug 2014

I have these white tag cards I got years ago from i craft. Copyright date is 2010 and there’s 8 to a pack and I still have 7 unused, so I guess this is the first card I’ve made with them. The butterfly die is the new one from papertrey ink Life is Beautiful. I used the Make a Wish stamp from Studio Calico’s Hello stamp set in the latest monthly card kit on Simon Says Stamp Greetings with Sketchy die.

The inks were all distress inks. I used Tim Holtz spritzer on the stencil using the Peeled Paint, Broken China and Wild Honey Distress Markers. I then used the Wild Honey on the Sketchy Die with the spritzer.  I used the Distress stains of Peeled paint and Broken China on the butterfly and then edged the butterfly with a wink of Stella and also put it in the holes on the background butterfly. I inked the edges of the card with Mustard Seed and Scattered Straw. Lastly I put some dots out of my stash and tied a scrap ribbon in the hole.

This sentiment I found on the Inisde & Out Birthday II stamp set from Papertrey Ink which I thought matched nicely with the sentiment on the outside.

This is the sketch I was supposed to follow. Thanks for looking! It won’t be so long next time.


Love, Love, Love

Welcome to my first blog entry.  I have created this blog to highlight my work. I’ve been creating a lot of cards lately and would like a place to show them off.  So without further ado, here is a card I made.

birthday embossing paste - stenciled

This is based off a card done by Debby Hughes in the stenciled class I took this past weekend. First it is spritzed with color, then I applied embossing paste through a honeycomb stencil, I then added the die cut of clustered leaves from Simon Says Stamps and topped it off with an intricate butterfly die from Heartfelt Creations spritzed again with the same colors from before. I added some pearls and the Happy Birthday sentiment.  Not sure who is going to get it.
