Black Birds

This is a bits and pieces card.  Using some of the hoard of die cuts  and bits of items that fit together made this thank you card.  The background is Worn Lipstick and Brick Red Distress Ink.  The bottom is Washi tape and the die cuts  hang in the middle.

I just received this stamp set and I really like  the font and how  the birds  pop against the background.

Olde Fashioned

This image reminds me of going into our coffee shop.  The shop has a vintage vibe and is fun to sit and relax.  So, a vintage vibe card was made.  It uses two sponsors products, STAMPlorations and DL Art.  I would like to thank all the sponsors of the hop and Amy and her crew for all the weekly post and all the behind the scenes work!!

Celebrate With STAMPlorations

 STAMPlorations is turning four and we are invited to the party!  What a celebration with new releases and prizes!

To help them celebrate, the magic stencil technique was used with the Retro Circles stencil. A template was made to add the color.

Color was added with a sponge and the template was removed.  The stencil was misted with water and placed on the card.

The stenciled image magically appears!

Bold Coffee

While I was playing with the alcohol inks, I decided to try distressed inks  on glossy paper,  The top panel is distress inks and they did not move so well on the paper.  The outcome looked artsy.  I stamped on the artsy panel and used alcohol inks on the back panel.

I do like the bold, vivid colors!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Get Up, Get Coffee, Sparkle and Be Happy

I had a lot of fun using alcohol ink and blowing through a straw to get the background design.  This is photo paper but heavy shimmer paper makes the ink feather out differently.  The first one is darker and does not show up as well.  The second card you will need your sunglasses!!

Sunglasses needed for this card!!

A Dragon's Birthday

This little dragon card is headed to North Carolina to celebrate my grandson's birthday.  

Riley is into dragons's right now, so it is perfect!  I am sure he will stick his little fingers into as many of the holes as he cand and then will have his little brother Henry do the same.  This  could  be a card that entertains them for hours!!

Thanks for stopping by!
