Envelope Card

I have on one of my Cricut Cartridges a die of an envelope.. I was playing with it the other day and got this idea to make a card with it..

Soooo I set the Cricut to cut at 5 inches. Then folded it .... I then worked on the inside of the card. Stamping my images, cutting them out. Distressing using Walnut Distress Ink.. I used the Paper from Graphic 45 the" Renaissance Fair" Collection.. Once I was done on the inside I decided to use a piece of Trim to close the card and put a small piece of Velcro on the end.. Then I added one of my hand made flowers made from Satin Material. I need to make some more of these flowers. They are so much fun to make.

Hey!! Thanks for Looking!!

Rock Candy Stickles and it's Grungy Monday again

Another Monday has come around and this week over at Linda's Studio L3 we are using Rock Candy Stickles and/or Rock Candy Crackle Paint. I created this tag using Timmy's Distress Inks to begin with and then stamped my image.. I then created a mask and put it over the image and proceeded to stamp the script stamp down the tag.. Time to emboss the edges. I took the Tim Holtz Embossing Ink and ran it down the edges and used Peeled Paint Distress Embossing Powder.. Heated it up and I have this cool grungy border.. I put the mask back on and used the Rock Candy Stickles all over the tag except the image. Stamped the saying on a small tag and cut it up in pieces. I put some Rock Candy Crackle Paint on the pieces but you can not see it at all.. boooo! Then adhered it to my tag with pop dots. Of coarse last came some fibers. Oh yeah I can't forget I created the tiny flower I put in her hair.. and that's my story and I'm sticking to it!! LOL This was a really quick and fun tag to make.. If you want to know more about rock candy stickles and rock candy crackle paint clicky here..

Once again my camera sucks.. The tag is actually green using shabby shutters distress with a touch of Scattered Straw and Weathered wood.. anyone want to buy this gal a new camera??? ROFL!!

creating Vintage flowers

I've been sitting and waiting for months for a circle die to come in from my distributor. I wan to create Lollipop flowers. I'm sooo stupid sometimes. There I have the Tattered Floral Die from Tim Holtz and I didn't even think to use it.. why because it's not a circle??? duh and duh again!! so anywho this morning I tried to cut my satin fabric with it and would you believe it cut like butter!! Not like my Cricut which is on strike this week. I'm having such problems with it. Well anywho again once I cut this fabric I said to meself okay now what? so I cut about 10 of these out and I grabbed my heat tool and a long tweezer and went to work melting the fabric. rolling the petals and melting them. Add a feather, some pearls and a leaf and I came up with this.
i'm going to I think add some crystal Stickles to it to give it some shimmer..

The picture does it no justice. It looks so much better in person..

So tell me what do you peoples think?

I would love any comments even if you hate them!! ROFL!!

here is another one I just did real fast

What I did until the wee hours

I've been up all night .. first I started working on a Serendipity Swap I'm in. Not finished yet. Then I got this idea to alter slides. What fun I had playing with these. On the slides I used some distress inks and then stamped it with a script stamp.. I had to cut out the inside plastic of the slide or it would have been full of ink. I'd like to get some transparencies but I just used my printer to print out these images. I created this little mini slides book.. Aren't these images fabulous!!

It's a Perfect Pearls Day or maybe it's not

I created this tag for Grungy Monday over at Studio L3 using a Technique from Tim Holtz but it didn't come out right. In the picture you can't even see the shimmer from the Perfect Pearls. In real life you see it a little bit. First I sprayed with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and reinkers and water. Then I stamped the scroll work with the media and brushed Perfect pearls on the tag. After I got all done I painted the flowers with Perfect Pearls. You can maybe see it on them. If you want to know how to do the first Technique here is the Link to Tim's Blog where he shows you how to do make the spray mixture. Maybe I didn't put enought Perfect Pearls in. duh
