Imagine That - May Progressive

Where do these months go? I am at the last hour of the last day to get my card in for the progressive challenge over at Imagine that.

I went with a very simple design. I printed out the images twice and fussy cut the flowers and the butterfly to create a 3-D affect.

Colors are so vibrant! Loving this image. Hope everyone had a great weekend and on to June!

Thanks for popping in.

So Suzy Stamps - Sending You a Note

I don't know why, but it seems that I never have masculine cards on hand. Try as I may, I always seem to run out. Well this months release was filled with wonderful images to create some great note cards and I am here to share one with you.

As you can see, it is a very simple layout, but makes a wonderful note card. Note cards are great as "Thank You" cards as well, which is what our theme is for this months challenge.

Not worth the jail time

I love this So Suzy Stamp! Jail Time is one of my favorites, but I do have many.
I new I wanted to do something fun so I thought I would create my own jail sign. Hopefully I will NEVER have a real one, but you never know... LOL!

I created the sign using Pic Monkey. I just love that program. What is fun about this card, is I can use it for so many occasion, I Just need to change my inside sentiment.

Isn't creativity fun!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend..

So Suzy Steampunk Featurette - Part IV

Hi everyone!  I am back with my final post for the Steampunk Featurette. I hope that you have enjoyed all the projects and ideas I have shared and I have inspired you to make some Steampunk projects. Did you know that there is a special section just for Steampunk over at So Suzy Stamps? Well, there is, and here is the link to help you find it:   

So for my final post, I thought I would do something just a bit different. Most of us are card makers. But I  have not seen a lot of posts sharing mixed media art. We would love to see some, so I hope that my post today inspires you.
I started off with a blank canvas and wrapped it with some paper I got at a local art store. I liked the print on this paper and it saved me time in having to stamp up my background. I adhered it with Mod Podge which works great!

I used my Distress stains to give the canvas background some color. No rhyme or reason just started adding color. I think that is why I like mixed media,..nothing is wrong!


FREE - Military Pay Book

Military Pay Book Dated: 1917

This image is so delicate, I was almost afraid to scan it, but what an awesome find. We found this at a vintage swap meet called "Junk in the Trunk." What was amazing is the entire collection is from one military soldier and it follows him through his service through his letters to his family and loved one. I hope you like this collection.
