Corrosive Challenge – favorite things

Glitter and bling are among my favorite things!  Well, among them and high on the list – really how do I pick just two!!  I have seen many cards done where the papers are all matted but this is the first time I have done it and I have to say I like mine just as much as I like everyone else’s!  I think I will be doing more of this.  I’m not too worried about running out of paper.  ;-)  As I was making this I started wondering – does coloring get hard as you get older??  I don’t have many stamps to color in but I really like the look of them.  Apparantly, I don’t know how to color!  I guess that’s something for me to work on this year.  I just never thought of it as a hard thing to do and now I’m starting to think that it is.  I just love this fairy that was sent to me.  I might have to start buying more stamps to color because I don’t have any detailed ones.  I tend to stick to the simple stamps or two-step stamping because it’s faster.  It is faster but I really am liking the colored look.  This could be a good idea for my Christmas money.  Well, enough rambling.  It’s taken me long enough to make this card without prolonging it any further.  I hope you enjoy it!  Oh – just one more thing – the stamped image was sent to me and I wanted it cut smaller but I could not get it cut straight for anything – therefore I distressed the edges!  It’s a great technique to fool the eye!

My Time to Craft Challenge #72 – Anything Goes

I have been telling myself all week that I am going to get to some crafting.  It’s Wednesday night already and I am just getting started, and it’s late.  Better late than never right?  This sketch from Clean & Simple was perfect for a simple card.  It also served as a confidence builder that I was able to finally get something done.  I’m planning to set aside more time tomorrow.  I found the ‘Wish’ rhinestone word on clearance yesterday at Michael’s.  Great turnaround time on buying and using, don’t you think!

I Scream, You Scream…

…we all scream for ice cream!  I didn’t have a diecut or any kind of ice cream stamps so I had to improvize for this card.  Sometimes that works and other times it doesn’t.  This was one of those time when what I thought in my head was actually how it turned out!  I distressed the edges of the blue with my CTMH Distresser.  I used Liquid Applique to add dimension to the ice cream and embossed and sanded the lines on the cone.  The blue button was a bit bright and took away from the ice cream cone so I added a yellow button sticker to the top to tone it down.

Products used:  KI Memories paper, Basic Grey pearls, Liquid Applique, Funky Flower stickers by Pebbles, Inc. (button sticker), unknown ribbon and button.

Alice in Wonderland

IMG_1847

This was a fun layout and the colors worked well together.  I kinda wish I had made the rhinestone circle smaller but I like the pattern.  I used a Mini Dots All Around template by TheCraftersWorkshop.com.  I love this little template for making circles with eyelets, brads, buttons, bling, etc.  Layout was based on Scrap Sketch #120.

Products used: Making Memories paper, Reminisce paper, KI Memories flourish glitter border sticker, Alice in Wonderland Disney stickers by EK Success, Basic Grey bling it rhinestones, and Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge.
