Birthday Flourishes

Hi all.....well it's time for another post and I used some of my favourite Distress Inks and it's in my favourite colour....Purple!!!

Products Used

Cardstock: Black, White and Ranger White Glossy Cardstock
Misc.: Maya Road Chipboard- Mini Scrolls and Mini Antique Keys, Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder- Dusty Concord, Tsukineko Clear Embossing Powder, Misc. Black Sparkle Embossing Powder, Ranger Perfect Pearls- Jewels, Basic Grey Basics Paper Ribbon Dollies, Ranger Ink Blending Tool and Misc. Rhinestone

So, I stamped the Flourish with Dusty Concord and then I stamped it again with Versamark and embossed with the clear EP. I used my distress inks and the blending tool for the background. I added the paper ribbon, which I used the Perfect Pearls on. Inked the mini scrolls with Versamark and used the Black Sparkle EP on them and then I did the key with the Black Soot and the Dusty Concord EP and adhered them all to the front. I cut the banner from the Glossy White CST, leaving the CST in the die, then I used the Blending Tool with the Milled Lavender. Stamped my sentiment with the StazOn and pop dotted it on my card. Added the rhinestone to the key and that's it for this card, so...........until next time!!! Have a great week!!!

Happy Halloween and Flying Crows!!!

Hi all, so it's time for another I figured I would do a Halloween Card, since it won't be much longer before Halloween is here! So I hope you all enjoy today's post...........I had fun making it!!!

Products Used

Cardstock: White, Black and Purple
Stamps: Stampendous Cling- Crowscape and Tim Holtz Mini Halloween
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Tim Holtz Distress Inks- Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord and Versamarker

So here's how I put this together.....I used the blending tool with all of the distress inks to create the background, then I sprinkled some water on it to make the inks react. I stamped the crowscape stamp with the StazOn, then I sprayed it with the Perfect Pearls Mist and of course the pearly sheen doesn't show up on the pic! :) I really wanted the crows to stand out, so I used my Versamarker and coloured them in and used the Aged Black Embossing Powder. I absolutely love the new Stampendous Powders!!! For the sentiment I used the 2 distress inks and then I stamped the sentiment with the StazOn, then I added the lace to the bottom of the sentiment and that's pretty much it for this card. So I hope you all enjoyed my Halloween Card.............until next time.

Featured Product Post and a Giveaway!!!

Hi all, well it's time for another giveaway on the Scrapbooker's Paradise Blog..... scroll down to the end of my post for the deets............So the featured product is...................Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists!!! So here's what I did........and don't forget to check out what Sara did with the Glimmer Mist, check it out on her blog here.

Products Used:
Cardstock: White & Black
Ink: Versamark and Ranger Black Archival Ink

So I used the butterfly template and the acrylic dabbers on the white cardstock, then sprayed the glimmer mists over top. The acrylic paints actually resist the glimmer mists, so you can create some really awesome backgounds with them! Then I cut the tag out of the black cardstock with the Spellbinders die and used my versamark and clear embossing powder over top. I sprayed the glimmer mists onto the white cardstock and stamped my sentiment with the archival ink. Then I added some pearls to the flowers. That's it for this card......I hope you all get out your glimmer mists and play, it's so much fun!!!

So who would like to win one of the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists??? All you have to do is leave a comment on the Featured Product post on the the Scrapbooker's Paradise Blog.

Fabulous Florals

Hi all.........well it's time for another Showcase Monday and this time we are doing Fabulous Florals.....I decided to go with a fall theme and made a card.......

Products Used:
Cardstock:Brown, Orange, Green and Imaginisce Happy Harvest 12x12 Patterned Paper
Misc: Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Imaginisce Happy Harvest Sticker Stackers and Brown Satin Ribbon

So all the flowers on this card are made with the Carnation Dies and the Happy Harvest paper. I cut them out 2 or 3 times in different sizes, I also shaped the petals on all of the flowers......I love to make my own flowers and you can make them any colour or size that you want. I used the Polka Dot folder on the orange cst and layered the Happy Harvest on top, then added my ribbon and a bow. I used the mini Flourish die and cut out 2 of them and adhered them to the right corner, then I added all my flowers. Do did you notice???? There's actually no stamping on this card!!! I used one of the Stickers that goes with this line. Well that's pretty much it for this card.........I hope you all enjoyed my version of Fabulous until next time...............have a great week!!!
