Brushed Birthday

This soft colors birthday card was made using a paper from CTMH Brushed paper packet and a mini single stamp called A Little Gift.

After I colored the gift image, I 'painted' on some retired Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel to add some shine, and topped the gift with a clear sparkle.

Happy creating!  :)

Paper:  Brushed; White Daisy CS
Stamps:  A Little Gift, Card Chatter Birthday - retired

Hanging Photo Clipboard and Printable Christmas Decor

Ok, so here's a couple of different crafty things to share...

First up is a hanging photo clipboard.

I like these because you can easily switch out the photo.

I actually bought the photo clipboard from a rustic country store, but it was a little cheesy and not rustic at all, so I removed the clip and tucked the ribbon behind the mdf board and spray painted it with a few coats of chalkboard spray paint.

After it dried completely, I cut out a shape large enough to frame a 4x6 photo using my Cricut and some scrap cardstock.  I then used a white chalk pen and outlined the shape, and added some extra lines.  

The last step was to screw the clip back on to the mdf, and then I added the stickers.

My second project simply used this printable I found via Pinterest, and a red frame from Ikea.


Happy creating!  :)

Golden Christmas

Colors inspired by some packaging this Christmas, I created a couple of Christmas cards using gold embossing powder and some washi tape.

This one is pretty straight forward.  I used a striped mask and sponged on some Versamark ink onto Black cardstock, sprinkled with gold embossing powder, and heat set it for the gold striped base.

I inked the wreath in black ink, and the berries and bow in Versamark and used gold embossing powder.  

Pop dotted the circle and the banner.

This one has a few more tricks, though not much.  ;)

I first covered a piece of Colonial White cardstock with Gold dot washi tape.

Added some Black Shimmer Trim and a strip of Tan Glitter paper on top of the striped grosgrain ribbon.

The sentiment was embossed with Gold embossing powder on Black cardstock.  

Added the punched snowflakes and some adhesive backed Gold Sequins to their centers.

Happy creating!  :)

Gold Stripe:
Paper:  Colonial White and Black CS
