For You

  This lighthouse die from Die Versions and a pad of BoBunny Very Vintage Double Dot Designs have  been in my stash for awhile and needed to be used.  I don't do vintage well so this was a bit of a challenge for me but was a lot fun.  My Tim Holtz distressing does not show up too well in the picture but close up it looks pretty good. 

A few fun challenges:

Glitter 'N'Sparkle Challenge #180: Anything Goes

Stencil time

Keeping with the green theme of St. Patricks I thought I would post a few cards I made with a stencil from STAMPplorations designed by Sherry Russ.  The top one is done with distress inks and the hello is stamped.  The second one is done with pearlescent embossing paste mixed on a craft mat with a bit of distress ink.  I've been wanting to try this for a while and finally played.  Loved the results, click on the image and you will really be able to see the shimmer! This one has a die cut one it due to the dimension of the embossing paste. 

Have a wonderful and hopefully creative weekend!

A few fun challenges:

Wishing all a Happy St. Patrick's Day.  Sharing a CAS card made with a pre-colored digi that was very quick and easy. I had two of these sitting in my drawer so it was time to put them to use and mail them out to a couple chemo patients.  Have a wonderful day!
