Camp Create Day #2 Magnificent Masking....

Hello & Happy Saturday Again!!!
I'm back with my Second post of the day!
You can find my 1st post RIGHT HERE!!

I'm trying to earn ALL my Camp Create Badges
so I have to get these projects posted ASAP!!!

The Badge I'm trying to earn this time is
Day #2 Magnificent Masking

Here's the Project I made to show you

My friend GEORGIANA will be happy to see that I FINALLY
Pulled out my (CLOUD STENCIL) by My Favorite Things!!
YUP!! Finally took it out of its package to create the cloud background -
I did some masking in order to create the sky & ground

The Sky was made with Broken China Distress ink and 
the Ground was made with Vintage Photo Distress ink
I think it turned out pretty neat! :) I added a SWEET
Puppy dog that I colored with my Zig Real brush pens
The Puppy & Sentiment are from MFT (Friends Furever)
Stamp Set - I thought my card was kind of plain so I decided to
add some stitching with my Stitched Strip die (MFT)
I think it really adds some character to my card!
The Tag Frame die is from Queen & Co (Christmas Frame Tag)
The Design Paper for the tag frame is from MFT (Fun & Frolic) 6x6 pad
I finished up my card with some Rainbow Sparkle Jewels (Lucy's Cards)

Thanks for stopping by a second time today!
I'll be back tomorrow with 2 more cards!
CRAZY??? I Know right!!

Have a Fabulous Saturday!


Camp Create Day #1 Inlaid made Easy...

Hello & Happy Saturday Everyone!
I know.... it's not my "Normal" day to post -
another round of Camp Create
going on and I really wanted to participate again!!
Call me CRAZY! But I thought, Why not!!! πŸ˜ƒ

So I'm gonna have 2 posts today - This is my First one -

I'm earning my badge for Day #1
Inlaid Made Easy

Here's what I came up with!

Now tell me this isn't CUTE!!! I thought this turned out adorable!!! LOL

I cut the Sun Ray Die by My Favorite Things out 2 x's
I colored the first one with a Distress Ink - Mustard Seed
The Second one I colored with Distress Oxide Inks - Fossilized Amber,
Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade -

So basically, I took the pieces of the Sun Ray from the Distress Oxides 
colors and puzzle pieced them together with the outline from the 
Mustard Seed Distress Ink Sun Ray -
Once I had them in place I adhere it to a piece of fun foam
so it'll POP on my card - Then I decided to use the 
(Smile) Die from Pink & Main - Cutting it out 3x's then added
some shading to it and placed it on my card -

I wanted this to be a Birthday Card for another Teacher at School
so I stamped the "It's your day" above the word smile -

Then I thought it needed a HAPPY Face -
So I stamped the (Sweet Faces 3) Stamp from Pink & Main
in the circle spot... Added some pretty Rainbow Sparkle Jewels
and there ya go! LOL

As you can tell by this photo, I have a Sun Ray left over so I can make 
another card with it - I also used my FAVORITE Sparkle Shimmer Spray
on my card... and oh boy does it sparkle!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'll be back a little later with 
another Camp Create card!

Victorine Originals Challenge #9 - Wings

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
Today... starts another FUN Challenge over at: 

 YAY! I know how you
guys enjoy a good Challenge!

Our Challenge is - On Wings - 

 You can follow the Theme or Use the inspiration photo
or Use the color combo or use all 3!!! You don't have to use
a stamp from Victorine Originals if you don't have one!
There is ALWAYS a random winner so come join us!

All the rules for this fun challenge are RIGHT HERE!

Here's what I created to inspire you --

I decided to just go with the THEME for this Challenge -
I'm using the Beautiful Butterfly Clear Photopolymer Set
This Butterfly stamp set, is another fabulous set that I just adore from

I chose to do some stenciling on my card - This is something
I don't do often enough.... 😊The Geometric Pattern Stencil
is from Gina Marie Designs 
I used Distress Oxide inks on my card in Abandoned Coral,
Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, & Iced Spruce - 

I wanted my Butterflies to POP so I stamped them with
some Versafine Black Onyx ink then added some 
WOW Primary Ebony Black embossing powder... Then
heat set them - I think they look wonderful  - I added some
dimensionals to pop the butterflies up on my card and
added some Fun Foam to the card backing - The stitched
Rectangle & Banner Dies are from My Favorite Things.
Before I completed my Card I made sure to add some
Sparkle Shimmer Spritz and added some Clear
Adhesive gems....

Happy Birthday to You!!!

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Today's my day to take over the blog at:
YAY for me... πŸ™Œ

I'm so excited to share this Sweet colorful
Birthday card!

I really like the Birthday Word Print Stamp -
It's not a full background stamp - it's about 3 3/4 x 4 3/4
I pulled out a piece of water color paper & Heat embossed
the stamp with some White Embossing powder then
 I pulled out some Distress Oxide inks in
Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, & Fossilized Amber
to color over my embossing - It totally makes the words POP!
I added some of my Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spray and
dabbed it with a cloth -  I let it dry then used a Stitched
Rectangle die to cut it out -

Then, I wanted to add that ADORABLE
Wonky Four Layer Cake Stamp! I embossed it as well -
Using some Purple, Pink, & yellow embossing powder I
had in my stash - I don't own a ton of embossing powders
especially in colors, so I'm a little disappointed that I didn't
have a bright purple or pink... I think it would have stood out a
bit more if I had... None the less - I used what I have! 😊
After it was embossed, I cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut

I used some Bright dotted paper from Doodlebug Designs and
cut it out with a Scalloped Stitched Die from Gina Marie Designs
I think it looks wonderful on that White Cardstock - I also
used some Fun Foam to pop up the Scallop frame & added some
Dimensionals to the cake - 

I'll be giving this card to one of the Teachers at School --
Everyone is happy to be back at work and back on a 
schedule! :)

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
How was your weekend? Did you get some rest?
Some crafting done? Maybe some Family time???
I chose to just chill out & get some rest after the several busy
weeks I had getting the school ready to open today!
I'm back on my regular schedule at work now
so I'll be busy still, just not as crazy busy! (Thank goodness!)

I've had Fall & Halloween on the brain for several weeks now
and I've already posted my first Halloween card - Well
today will be a Fall card I made using the New Paper Collection
from Echo Park called (A Perfect Autumn)
I really like the patterns in this collection & the Embellishments 
are cute too! Here's what I created to show ya --

The Sketch is from MFT #336 for my card design --
The Cardstock is Bazzill & Stampin' Up and I'm using a Stitched
Rectangle Die from My Favorite Things --
The Sentiment is from Hero Arts (Color Layering Grateful Leaves Set)
The Stitched Fishtail banner is from Gina Marie Designs
and of course I added some Sheer Shimmer 
Sparkle Spray to the Owl & Pumpkins!

I thought this turned out so sweet! 😊
