Side Step Card-CASED

Hello Everybody!

I wanted to show you the card I made today for Technique Time Tuesday!  It's a side step card that I CASED from the entries so far.

The card I CASED is from Heather G:

Isn't it just beautiful with those blossoms!  I like the way she did the sentiments and her color scheme.  And she used Doodle Pantry stamps.  I was so inspired that I pulled out my Doodle Pantry stamps (they used to be Clearly Dollar Stamps).  

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next my friends...what's inspiring you? :)

Steampunk Picture Frame

Hello Everybody!

It's my turn over at Unique Laser Designs to do a project.  I had so much fun creating this picture frame.

The wings and the gears are all from Unique Laser Designs!  The frame is a basic wooden frame from the craft store.  

Here are a few highlights from my frame.  To see the complete tutorial you will have to check out my post at Unique Laser Designs! :)

I painted the frame with gesso and then coated it with Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint.

Here are all of the gears in the natural form.  I used from 2 packs-both A and B.

I used Ultra High Embossing Powder from Wow! to cover the gears.  I used copper, gold and silver.

I used Ranger's Platinum embossing powder for the wings.  It's finer than the Wow!

Here is a close up of the wing with the US light bulb in the middle.  The bulb is from Prima.

Here is a close up of the cracklely goodness!

Also, I want to link this frame up to a couple of challenges:

As always-thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends--love that Steampunk! :)

Easter Egg Card

Hello Everybody!

It's my turn over at Unique Laser Designs, and I have created this CAS card.

Here's my card:

Here is a close-up of the eggs.  I used TH Distress Paint Spun Sugar and Peeled Paint on the wooden eggs.  Then I applied Crystal Stickles over them.  When you buy the eggs there are 6 different designs in a pack-so there will be more egg projects! :)

Mixed Media Bunny

Hello Everybody!

I am working on my Easter cards-and I am loving the prompts that the challenges are offering.  These prompts are helping my mojo! :)

So here is my mixed media bunny card.  Here are the challenges that I am submitting it to:

Digi Haven: Easter Challenge with a Twist-Use the Color Brown.  I used kraft paper for the background and walnut distress ink around the bunny square.

Moxie Fab World: Styling with Stencils Challenge in the Moxie Fab World:  I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and mustard seed distress paint for the yellow chevrons on the right side of the bunny.

Make My Monday:  Easter

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Happy Easter

Catch the Bug Challenge Blog: Anything Goes

Here are some details on my card:
I used a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous for the pink design.  I used Stampendous pink embossing powder.
The bunny is from Bugaboo Stamps.  I used copics to color him and distressed the square.  I also used walnut ink distress ink around the edges.  The flower strip is from Wasau Paper and a Martha Stewart punch.  The chevrons are from mustard seed distress paint and a Heidi Swapp chevrons stencil.  Then some random sequins.  Oh-also, I used a cream white cat eye around the edges of the kraft paper to soften them.

Here is a little big of a close-up.

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends..have a good night! :)

Cute Lil' Bunny

Hello Everybody!

I finished an Easter card this evening.  I used a Bugaboo waving bunny on it.  I think he is super cute!

I colored him with Copics.  I used the swiss dots embossing folder for the purple cardstock.  The flowers are from a trim I have.  And the background paper is a scrap (Yay!).  I used a little pink ink around the bunny square too.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
