CAS Thank You Card

Image
Hi everyone and happy Monday! I have been a little under the weather for the last few days and my creativity has suffered. So I decided to keep it simple this week and create a CAS thank you card.

The Thank so much stamp is from theInspirational Plate #2 set and the purple flower stamp is called grunge lettered flower. This card came together very easily. I stamped the flowers using wilted violet distress oxide ink and the thank so much sentiment with Black archival ink.  To finish off the card I added some black Nuvo Crystal drops.

Artist Trading Coins

Artist Trading Coins seem to be the new craze. I came across this idea on a few videos I watched on You tube.  These little coins were perfect to use up some of my small Tim Holtz Paper dolls.

To see how I created the background and the production of these Artist Trading Coins, you can check out the video below.


The background technique is very easy to create. I was able to add several layers of metallic acrylic paint and also created some texture using embossing folders, in a non traditional way. 

These coins not only can be used for trading, they can be great additions to your cards, journals and more.

Non Traditional Wedding card

Image
Hi crafty friends. I am here today to share with you a wedding card I created for the just cards video hop. Now this is probably not the type of wedding card you are use to, but I wanted to give you some ideas for an outside of the box, not traditional wedding card. 

To see how I created the card, you can click on the video below. 


I am using two sets of stamps for this card. The first one is used for my background and is from PaperArtsy and is designed by Seth Apter. The second one is the silhouette bride and it is from I Brake for stamps. 

This card is part of a video hop, so if you want more inspiration, you will find the links to the other videos over on my you tube channel.

Lucky is a state of mind

Image
Hello and happy Monday! I am here sharing this fun birthday card that I have had in my mind for a while. I found these little poker chip stickers at a craft sale and they have been sitting in my stash waiting for the perfect card.

When I saw this playing cards background from I Brake for Stamps, I knew exactly what I would do. While the stamp is one piece, it is easy stamped and cut to make four playing cards.  I added distress oxide ink to make the cards look old and added this funny image from half sheet 046.
It is a very simple design, but so fun and will make a perfect birthday card. Be sure to check out this section and don't forget if you use my coupon code SAVE10MONICA, you will get 10% off.
