To Us!

I made this card for my Man!  Last Sunday marked 3 years of dating for us!

 First I embossed some glossy Cardstock

Then I was experimenting with Alcohol inks, I wanted to "color" some of the hearts.  First I tried using the corner of a piece of felt (that was disastrous!).  Next I tried using a q-tip, and this worked much better!  It's not perfect, but my boyfriend won't care!  I also filled in some of the hearts with Stickles.

Then I did some stamping and cutting and put the rest of the card together!

Materials: A2 card base from Michaels, HP Glossy photo paper, Heart brads from Oriental Trading, Core'dinations cardstock, Stickles and Distress Stickes, Cricut, Cricut Sweethearts cartridge, Distress Ink: Barn door red, Creative Imaginations Love Stamps, Foam squares from Hobby Lobby, Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks, Sizzix Texture Boutique, Provo Craft embossing folder, and Glue Glider Pro

Scrapbooking Therapy!

After school was over all I wanted to do was scrapbook!  So I started experimenting and this is what I came up with.  I recently got a Ranger Craft Sheet and I wanted to try out transfering Distress Inks from the craft sheet to paper.  So, I rubbed  tumbled glass, crushed olive, and dusty conchord distress ink on the craft sheet in stripes and then pressed a sheet of white cardstock into it and this background is what I came up with.  I am pretty excited with the results, I love experimenting!

Supplies:  Core'dinations white cardstock, Ranger craft sheet, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Cricut Create, Cricut Cartridge: Jasmine, Recollections flowers and lace, The Paper Studio pearls, decorative fibers from gifted memories, Ribbon by Ribbon FX and recycled, and Jewel by the Beadery.
