My First Acetate card......

I saw a card made with Acetate over at Stamping in the Moonlight I was inspired to try my own. I stamped the ship by PSX with my Charcoal Palette Noir Ink. I stamped it on watercolor paper. I used my watercolor pencils and SU! blending pen. I used my Coluzzle to cut the image as well as the matte. I distressed the edges. I mounted it on the acetate and cut 2 more circles. One is behind the front image to hide the adhesive and the other is on the inside to write the sentiment. When the card is closed all the circles line up! I used twine instead of ribbon, since it was for a man's birthday. I felt the acetate was a little plain so I stamped it with a wave stamp by All Night Media. I used Brilliance Ink and embossed it with clear powder. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Crafty Secrets Card!

I bought this set from Crafty Secrets. I had a little trouble with how I was going to use it though. It certainly is not a cutesy image. So I grabbed some Daisy D paper and a Basic Grey frame....I colored the fairy in with my Prisma's and Gamsol. I added some glitter to her wings. I stamped my scalloped circle with a very pretty stamp by Inkadinkadoo. I added pearls to the circle from Ellen Hutson's store. The ribbon was from my stash so I really don't know who makes it! I did some sewing too, although you really can't see it very well in this picture!

Check out Bitten by the Bug's Contest for a chance to win a free cartridge!

This card was made for Bitten by the Bug's Challenge. We had to use the George Cartridge and use the heart. It had to have polka dots too! I was running behind on time and whipped this card up pretty quick! I used Basic Grey's Gypsy line, which is really bright paper! (Wear your sunglasses while looking at this card....LOL!) I cuttlebugged the green paper. The sentiment is Karen Foster's snap stamps. The scalloped edge is actually paper from Creative Imaginations! I love their paper! Thanks for stopping by today!

I tried making cards today......I made 4 and threw 3 away....they were UGLY with a capital U! I don't know what is wrong with me....card challenged lately! SO here is the ONE card I did not throw away! I stamped this image from my friend and have no idea what set it is from....I think it is SU! Not sure so if you know please leave a comment. The sentiment was from Crafty Secrets. The DP is Basic Grey's Gypsy line. I colored the cup in with my Copics. (Which by the way, Hobby Lobby is NOT cheap...don't bother going there....$5.85 per marker!) The background stamp is by Hampton Art. I'm not even sure I am crazy about this card either......

On a different note....I finished all 5 pages for the Memory Makers Master's Contest! I will be mailing them off later this week!

My First Card with MFT's!!!

I wasn't gonna do it....I kept seeing cute cards with the stamps from My Favorite Things....I tried not to cave...I really no avail!!! I CAVED BIG TIME! I ONLY bought two sets....see the control I have? I bought this new fall set and decided since so many people were starting their Christmas cards that I could certainly start some fall cards! I colored the image in with my Prisma's and Gamsol. I chalked the "dirt" and inked the edges. The DP is from EK Success. The polk-a-dot tape is from Heidi Swapp. Did you notice the buttons? The thread color was originally white...I colored it brown with my Copics! I also added some polka-a-dots!

Just an FYI...for those of you that have a Hobby Lobby anywhere...they are carrying the Copic Markers. They have them 25% off this week. I will go tomorrow and check their prices! might have to check...maybe it will only cost ya half a kidney...LOL!!
