Just a little fun today!

June 24, 2022

InkyStampers Stamps and Dies always give me ideas. This is what I came up with after watching Chelsea on The One of A Kind Virtual Craft Along on Saturday, June 18,2022.

All paper is from my stash, ink was from Nuvo, background is made with an embossing folder and Nuvo’s Embellishment Mousse.

Thanks for spending time with me today.

June 12, 2022. I’ve been crazy busy!

So, today is Sunday and I’m just catching up ! Sometimes life just gets in my crafting way! Go figure! Lol. I’ve been working on getting my husband and I physically healthier. We are a hot mess as I’m sure many can relate to. In between times we have been traveling to and from our home to our vacay home. Lots of Graduations, Birthdays and Anniversaries. At this time in our lives we are also having to face the reality of losing lifelong friends. It makes one stop and think of the many blessings that we have and that others have bigger issues than we do.

These are just a few of the projects I’ve been working on, in my spare time! I’ve entered a card challenge with InkyStamper using Bug stamps and have participated in a card club of Itty Bitty embellishments. Creatively, I’ve been having fun. I’m not including any recipes for this blog today but, if you want anymore info I’ll be glad to send you the information.

InkyStamper’s Inkspiration April Challenge

April 29, 2022

This Challenge was for making an ATC (Artist Trading Card), an ATC is 2 1/2inches by 3 1/2 inches.

The Goat is from InkyStampers Goat Stamp Set, UC004. He was stamped on Neenah Index White Card Stock and I gave Goat a coat of ‘Twiggy Brown’ from Ink on 3 Atelier using a finger dauber. Goat was also colored with Water color pencils from my stash. The Grass was stamped , again with Ink on 3 Atelier – Goddess Green and the sentiment was from the InkyStamper’s Pig Cause stamp set, stamped with Nuvo Ink’s Black Shadow.

The base was made with Watercolor Paper and Scrapbook.com’s Pops of Color for the background. I also used the scraps to make a second panel and distressed all of the panels with Ink on 3 Atelier ‘Sweet Petunia Pink’ . I wrapped the smaller panel with Twine from my stash and popped it up with Foam Square adhesive. I also used foam squares to pop up the Goat.

I finished my ATC by embellishing the Goat with Crystal Glaze by Nuvo.

Once I finished the ATC challenge portion of this creation, I turned it into an A2 card with the card base again using Neenah Index White Card Stock and embellishing it with scraps from my original first layer creation on watercolor paper. I popped up the ATC with foam Squares and placing it on an angle on the card base. I embellished this too with the Scrapbook.com’s Pops of Color .

Thanks for stopping by and visiting tonight.

Spring Time fun!

Happy Friday everyone! I know it’s been a while since I’ve been here. I’m still working with my injured back and it make things difficult at best. Things are looking up and that’s a good thing.

I’m back in my CraftRoom today to share a fun card, using new product and techniques from Scrapbook.com. If you want to learn more about this product and technique, check out Scrapbook.com’s YouTube video titled:Hop on over to New Spring Bundle! Livestream Party.

I’ll be sending this to a very special friend just to say”Hello”.

I designed this by using Neenah Exact Index card stock in White for the card base and background panel. I distressed the card base edge with Ink on 3’s Atelier ink in Bee Sting Yellow. The layered panel was achieved by using Hero Arts Floral Backgrounds Stencil and Scrapbook.com’s Pops of color in soft lavender, sky blue, sunshine and key lime gloss on a silicone mat with the new larger Scrapbook.com squeegee/scraper. Set aside and let this dry thoroughly. While card panel is drying, create the sentiment pieces by die cutting with Altnew’s Simple Greeting Die set 4 times using Scrapbook.com’s smooth card stock paper pad Brights Collection, size A2. I also cut the die outline from foam board 2x’s to create an embellishment image, using craft glue to assemble. I completed the card by adhering the card front panel onto the card base with craft glue and adhering the ‘Hello’ die Embellishments onto the pops of color stencil card panel also with craft glue completing the work with Picket Fence sequins and pearls from my collection.

Thanks for visiting today and enjoy your weekend.

February 26, 2022

Todays fun creating with my Whimsey friends through Zoom.

This is the first time I’ve felt good enough to sit in my CraftRoom and look what a fun card I created.

This is from the card kit from Picket Fence Studio. I used a card base that I had in my stash. The card front is paper from Scrapbook.com paper pads and the sentiment and drink container are made with dies, acetate, shaker card embellishments, twine and adhesive from PicketFence Studio.

Thanks for stopping by today. It felt good to be crafting again.

Good Morning! Welcome to my unveiling of the new Picket Fence Studio card Kit.

This is going into the 3rd week of enforced inactivity due to falling and giving myself a compound fracture in my T11 and spraining all of the muscles in my middle back. I can cheerfully say that I’m moving much easier and looking forward to getting back to life before being broken!

I received Happy Mail from Picket Fence Studio and just have to share it with you. I love their sequin mixes, shaker card elements and very cute dies and stamps.

I’m looking forward to creating cards with all of these fun elements. They even included a cute little container to use while creating with their sequins, shaker embellishments and free sentiments.

If you are anything like me, the struggle is real when choosing a sentiment for your creation. It’s always a bonus when the sentiments are free.

The “Let the Good Times Roll” Card kit includes:Shaker Dies, Shaker Garnish, Foam adhesive sheets, Shaker Ice Cubes, Shaker Clay embellishments , Clear and Colored Acetate sheets, Patterned Paper and Twine. The kit came in a nice, zippered bag.Who doesn’t like cool organizing elements? Lol.

I’m going to use the offered class to create with this kit at: http://www.pfstamps.com

I hope you enjoy todays offering and keep looking for the completed cards. Thanks for visiting my site and I’ll be back soon😘

It’s Sunday and has been a nice day weather wise. I’m feeling much better and have graduated from high powered pain killers to Tylenol and a mild muscle relaxer. I know that there is sunshine on the horizon. I’m hoping I will be back to my CraftRoom soon.

Thanks for stopping by today and I can’t wait to see you soon!
