You Make Me As Happy As A Clam

Today, we are going down by the boardwalk, down by the sea!  Now that song is going to be playing in my head all day!


Using a Tim Holtz sea horse die cut, ARTplorations stencil and distress inks this tag was created.  I used Pistachio, Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers and Vintage Photo DI.  When stenciling, I used FJDI for the water and VPDI for the sand area.  A few circles of white acrylic paint was added to the left of the card and some of them faded into the background.  The shell has a little VPDI on it and gauze and string were added.  This sentiment stamp has been one of my favorite and does not get used much.

Designer Inspiration: Jerrie

Hi Everyone!  After five days of new releases, it is challenge time!  Have you picked your favorite images?



A little texture paste and stenciling created the wood look background.  I used the challenge colors for the majority of the flowers and then it needed a pop of color.  The orange flowers completed the boquet.  




Thanks for stopping by and we would love to see your creations linked up to the challenge at MHK Designs!

Pansy Corner


Are you ready for a fanstastic new release?  Today is Pansy Corners and it is a fun one!



I chose to make the pansy my focal point on the card.  I  enlarged , printed and just cut out the pansy image.  It was colored, a large gem was put in the center and the card was assembled.
I was happy with the finished card!  Tomorrow starts the new challenge at MHK Designs so join us for the challenge and see how I used Pansy Corners on my challenge card!  Thanks for stopping by.

Halloween Party

  Halloween Party is such a sweet, vintage stamp set and it is being released today!  You can use the sentiments, image or both to make a delightful card!




A pumpkin shaped card allows for the majority of the image to be used and yet, it is a fun shaped card.  A die cut leaf and twine finish off the card.



Tomorrow is the last day of the new releases, but, you can join us for the challenge starting in two days and use any of the images at MHK Designs or an image you have to join us in the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful Bottles

Day two of release week and Beautiful Bottles is making it's debut.  This stamp set has some awesome sentiments.  My favorite is "Happy girls are the prettiest".  What an uplifting sentiment and what girl would not love to receive a card made for them with that sentiment?





I had a charm that fit perfectly on top of the bottle.  Once the bottles were colored, a liquid glaze was put on the contents.  A few splatters and I am ready to send this card out!





Thanks for stopping by and there are still 3 new releases to show you over the next 3 days!  The new challenge starts on August 21.  What image are you going to use to join us?
