Birthday Card using Altenew Party Time stamp set

Welcome Back!

This is the card I made for my wonderful Hubby's birthday.

Again I watched Jennifer McGuire's video  where she used the Altenew Party Time stamp set. 

As always she made it look so easy with her free form stamping the images. 
I tried to free form stamp once and that looked like a hot mess. 

I used my Mini Misti to stamp all the images from the Altenew set. I literally copied Jennifer design since I was so intimidated by this and needed direction. lol 
Next time ill be brave to make my own. 

I had the most trouble with the sequins, they are soooo not perfect 
but I know my hubby will not even notice. 

I used some confetti stamps from the Honey Bee Celebration Box and SSS Taco Party stamp sets.

I was having such a stressful time with this and forgot to get all the colors I used but most were from Memento Dew Drops.

I put it onto black card stock base and added some Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals to add some shine.

Thank you again for coming by and see you next time!

Hello Again!

Today I have a fun Sparkly Rainbow Birthday card.

The sentiment is the SSS Painted Happy Birthday Wafer Die and I cut it from some Neenah Metallic cards stock in White Gold.

Distress Oxides Used:
Candied Apple
Squeezed  Lemonade
 Blueprint Sketch 

I used the Studio Katia Crystal Rainbow Fusion Sequins to add the coordinating color sequins. 

Till next time...Have a great day!

Color Throwdown #499 using Distress Resist Spray

Happy Monday!
I have my submission for the Color Throwdown Challenge #499.
The colors this week are yellow, green and blue.

I had gotten the Tim Holtz Distress Resist Spray in the Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit.

I read on the label about using with a stencil and I just had to try it.

I used the box that the card kit came in to spray paper. I still got some overspray on my mat but luckily it is glass and able to remove. 

Make sure to instantly wash off the stencil after spraying. 

I then ink blended on top with Distress Oxides in 
Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover and Blueprint Sketch.

I used a clean paper towel to buff off the ink on the splatter parts to make sure showed up with the white. 

I then stamped the You from the SSS You Matter stamp set and heat embossed with some Wow embossing powder in black. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

vellum to just add a little something.

Distress Oxide Water Painting Birthday Card


I have another card using the Distress Water Painting technique by Jennifer McGuire. 

I used the SSS Spring Flowers and More Spring Flowers  stamps sets with Versamark to white heat emboss the images on Bristol Smooth card stock.

I ink blended Tattered Rose and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Inks. I focused the Tattered Rose in the center with the Abandoned Coral on the outside.

I used a water brush to paint on the images and soak up with a paper towel. After it was dry I went in and painted the images with watered down Tattered Rose.

 It was then cut out using the MFT Blueprints 13 rectangle die.

The love sentiment is using the SSS LOVE wafer die and cut from Neenah Metallic card stock.
The other part of the sentiment is from SSS You Matter and All My Love stamp sets

I finished it up with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist.

Till next time...Have a fantastic day!!

Thank you card using Nuvo Glitter Paste and Distress Ink

Welcome Back!
I have a simple but pretty card for you today.

I used the MFT Stencil Abstract and ink blended the Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers onto it. I then spread on some Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone. 

I did have a little leakage of the paste under the stencil but...oh well.

I then used some velum and white card stock to cut out the SSS Big Thanks sentiment.
It was then mounted onto a simple white card base.
I didn’t add anything else since wanted to keep it simple since had all that sparkle.

Thank you  for coming by and see you next time!
