Birthday Card for A Friend

Had a wonderful lunch date with my girlfriend April and her family today! Wonderful people and we all LOL and had so much fun! This is the card and envie I made for her. The stamp is an old Tim Holtz stamp......love this one, and the print is made on the Gelli plate....used my new envelope punch board to make the envie, thanks for my enabler friend Beth!! I do love this thing-a-ma-jig. I had no idea what to do with all the Gelli prints, but now I use them for envelopes and am luvin' it.

Heart Boy Has Challenges.......

Stencils and humor go together..................LOOK!




This week at Lisa's Blogger challenge, it's STENCIL IT!  combined with the Stampotique Designers Challenge, add a littlebit of  HUMOR!

True Colors show boldly what is challenging Heart Boy.....working on watercolor paper, I used a stencil and Gelatos to make the orange/yellow background....blending with my finger tool and wiping out some of the color with a baby wipe.  Then I used a Bingo stencil and embossing paste.  When dry, I brushed with some black chalk.  The dress is embossed and inked.

I hope you enjoy my bit of humor, I had fun!

hugz.....

The FLY With An Eye

Recently I played in "metal" ATC swap over at Viva Las Vegas FB groupies. Just love the way this turned out and thought I would share with you all. The stamp is from a plate by Mary Vogel Lozinak, the stamp itself is called "flying eye insect"! I am linking it in cuz I think everyone needs a little fun in your day, and this stamp makes me LOL! In fact, ALL of Mary's stamps are just amazing, check them out.

It's a piece of black metal, embossed and sanded, then stamped on glossy, colored with distress inks, then added the white pen highlights, and the bottle cap.





If you decide to purchase while at VLVS, please tell them I sent you!

hugs..........

She's A Diva!

The theme this week is Animals at Lisa's Bloggers Challenge, and I tried a couple of new things.....the background tech is spraying onto a stencil, and then putting your card stock down onto it! EZ PZ! I actually used 2 different stencils and 2 different color sprays. You better believe I will use this tech again and again...........I love how they turn out, and it's a lot faster than the Gelli! Similar look too, imo. I thank you out there in blogland, where ever you are that showed this tech! I just finished up buying my collection of Spectrum Noir alcohol ink pens...and am learning how to play with them. This was difficult due to the yellows, reds and oranges underneath, but I still like the way she turned out.

An Old Friend.....

Today, it's SPRING on Lisa's Blogger Challenge.  I took out an old friend, Mr. Froggie to play with.  He was feeling neglected, and just hopped out of the book he lives in, and says "pick me" this morning.  I've had this stamp for over 10 years....it's a fabulous stamp that is fun to use.


First I made a few backgrounds, trying Wendy's latest bg tech, and then I went to town, adding lots of color to the stamped image.



I think this worked out great.
