Happy Thanksgiving with CASual Fridays

Thursday, November 26, 2015

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. I am of course very grateful for everything good in my life. I am truly blessed to have a great family, great job and the necessities in life.

My card is a super simple one. I used several colors of Distress Inks on my background and then gave the whole panel a good spritzing with my water sprayer to really get the inks to move.  I then stamped the image and sentiments from a CASual Friday stamp set.

Thanks friends for your visit. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Hello with Paper Smooches

I was able to get some watercolor card stock that Kay uses as her backgrounds are always so beautiful. I decided to start easy and I just took one color of distress ink and blended it onto the entire card panel but concentrating the color heavier up top and then fading down. 

I've been wanting to use this fun image from Paper Smooches and have tried to color it a couple of times without any real success. So I decided that I would just stamp it in black. I added just a touch of a cool gray Copic marker to add a bit of shadow to help ground the vase.

As always, your visit is truly appreciated. I hope you have an amazing day! Today is my last day of work for the week -- yeah for a super long Thanksgiving weekend. I'll be back here in a couple of days with a Thanksgiving card.

O Holy Night

It's time for another anything goes challenge at Christmas Card Challenges. I decided to ink up a gorgeous set from Paper Smooches. I first did some ink blending masking off the top from the bottom portion so I could create the sky and then the ground.

I still had my masking tape on the ground portion when I flicked my water droplets onto the sky section and unfortunately, the water must have seeped under my masking paper so I'm not super thrilled with that but I wasn't going to redo the whole thing.

I appreciate your visit. I hope you are having a great weekend.

Let's Party

Welcome friends. I'm so glad you stopped by today. I have a fun and festive card that was super easy to make as well -- Bonus!

I started out by die cutting the text block die from PTI. I used Stick it to make it super easy to adhere to the gold glittery card stock.  And that's all there is to it.
