(Ashley has a wonderful video tutorial.)
(I clear-embossed the sentiment.)

Pop-Up Die Cut

I really enjoy making TAG-CARDs and using dies.
(This is on its way to my sweet sister-in-law.)

I'm playing along with the following challenges.
(I used the PTI-Heart-2-Heart #3 die as my pop-up.)
(I used three different PTI dies.)
(I started with blank cardstock.)

DOTS & Embossing

I'm playing along with the PTI-June 2014 Blog Hop.
I was inspired by the colors of the lamp in the Inspiration Photo provided.
The polka dots are clear-embossed.
The "happy" is gold-embossed, & the "birthday" is white-embossed.
(This card is on its way to my sweet sister.)

I'm also playing along with:
Poppy Sketch #7
(I turned the sketch upside down.)
(I love dots, & I really should use this stamp set more often.)






Thanks for your visit.

Using Patterned Paper

When I saw Virginia's View Challenge #4, I knew I had to play along.
Virginia has asked us to create a Tag or a Scrapling, & incorporate a recycled item.
If you have visited my blog or my Flickr Photostream, you know that I love making Tags & Tag-Cards.
And, what a great opportunity to use up some of my patterned paper scraps.
(Thanks, Virginia, for a FUN challenge.)






Thanks for your visit.

Gesso, Paints, Stencil (ICAD #6)

This ICAD turned out so differently than originally planned.
It was fun playing around with inks, gesso, and acrylic paints. 
I'm playing along with the following:
To create the background:
Two images, cut from a Dillard's newspaper flyer, were adhered
Distress inks & gesso were used with the Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil
Circles were stamped in Black with a recycled foam tape ring
Blue & white lines were stamped with a recycled plastic card




Thanks for your visit.

ICAD 2014 (#1)

I'm playing along with Tammy's Index-Card-A-Day:  ICAD-2014 Challenge, that began June 1.
It's something a little different for me, and it provides me an opportunity to just simply "play".





To create my ICAD, I used gesso, various distress inks for watercoloring, and clear embossing powder.
I've used the darling Chickadees (Technique Tuesday) stamp set, that I recently purchased.

I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Monday Challenge-Paint.

Thanks for your visit.
