2019-08-21; August 1-on-1 with Jan; Color burst pigment powder


Last year Jan and I bought Color Burst concentrated pigment powders at the same time. We haven’t played together and used them so this was a fun exercise! Here are all 3 that I made.

All of my prints came out super dark so I blotted all of them for a lighter brighter color pallet.

2019-08-20; August 1-on-1 with Jan; stamping with bubble wrap!


I went to Jan’s house last week for a little 1-on-1 stamp time. She had some bubble wrap that we made backgrounds from. I glomed on to her sample and made a card out of it. She had the girl stamped and colored so I just cut more mats and assembled.

Here you can see the layers. I didn’t pop anything up on this one.

And one more look at the card before you go on about your day….

Thanks for stopping by.

I added this card to the challenge at CARDZ TV ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE #96

2019-08-19; coupon pouch and some stickers


Just a couple of odds and ends today. 1st up is a coupon pouch for your purse.

The pouch opened up….When I make one of these again, I will add a few more scores to the bottom so it can fan out better. This was super simple and will make a cute add on gift to someone.

And the other thing up today are these stickers. I just took a sheet of store bought stickers (dollar store), stamped them and will use them as “envelope seals.” This will help the envelope being mailed have a little extra adhesive to seal the flap shut.

Thanks for stopping by.

2019-08-18; Grand Cabinet


What a fun 3-d card for today; a card created using a Sizzix Grand Cabinet die.
The cards are stinkers to get a good photo of so you can see all of the layers. Here is the card and an aerial view.

Using an ephemera pack by Tim Holtz and a dollar store sticker to decorate here is a the card. You can see all of the layers and each one has something added to it so you see all of the dimension.

A close look at the interior of the card…yup, there is the dollar store sticker.

And one more look before you go on about your day….

Thanks for stopping by.

I entered this card into Challenge 117 | Anything Goes! at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.

The stamp that I used on this card is from the Stampin’ Up set called Tiny Tags which also has a matching punch. This set appeared in the Occasions Mini catalog in 2010.

2019-08-17; creating card around dollar store sticker


I have developed a real appreciation for dollar store stickers. Here’s one that I used and created a card to go around it.

And here is the card…

I used a sketch and some DP to create layers

and one more look at the card before you go on about your day…

2019-08-16; swirl border die & wall paper


I have an entire roll of textured wall paper. I love the rubbery feel of it and even with the concentrated pigments powders and spray of water didn’t change the fun feel. Here I took a swirl die and some scraps of the colored wallpaper to create a card.

Here is a close look at the wallpaper that I colored using blue & purple pigment powders.

All I added was recollections flower & glitter sticker.

One more look before you go on about your day…

2019-08-15; Double pocket card


Today’s card is a look back to the past, the double pocket card.

I actually left a flap on the back so it really is a card. Here you can see the open view.

And I pulled the tags out so you can see them.

Thanks for stopping by.
