I created this brightly colored, mixed media card by brushing on acrylic paints in the background, and accenting the stamped image with Scribble Sticks. I stamped the quote on Dina’s Media Tape, which is sort of like homemade Washi tape (I scribbled on it also). I added a thin strip of patterned Washi tape I had in my stash as well. I’m entering this card in the Creative Artiste’s Challenge #26, which is to create using mixed media. Thanks for visiting.

I was inspired by a wonderful spread in the February Craft Stamper Magazine showcasing altered Altoid candy tins. I’m part of a monthly group at our local art and craft store: Runaway Art and Craft Studio. We take turns selecting a project from the magazine and leading the group in creating it. It was my turn to lead the group and I chose altering Altoid tins with paper napkins. We each took a tin and applied a thin layer of gesso. We cut out small portions of napkins to fit the front and back of the tins and then attached them with gel medium. Once dry, I edged the tin with Staz-On ink on a foam applicator and stamped one of the tins (on the right) with a text stamp in spots. I covered the portion of the tins (without the napkin) with the metallic wax, as well as the wooden hearts. Finally, I applied black Staz-On ink gently on the pearls (right hand tin) for an antiqued look and attached the wooden hearts to the top. Thanks for visiting.

My family is working through my birthday card stash pretty quickly, so I decided to make a quick birthday card trying not to think very much. I didn’t worry about challenges or using something from a particular brand, etc. So this is what I came up with and I like it! I hope you do, too. Have a great day and thanks for visiting.

I created these Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) to swap with some online friends. Our theme was Nature’s Beauty. I started by stamping the flower images on watercolor paper and then coloring them with Zig Clean Color markers and a water brush. I used the matching dies to cut out the watercolored flowers. After I cut the cardstock into trading card size (2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″), I ran them through my Cuttlebug with the embossing folder to achieve the leaf background. I then adhered the die-cut flowers to the cards. I printed out the Emerson quote and applied Distress inks, cut out the quotes and adhered them to the cards. Thanks for visiting.

I’m doing a little catching up on cardmaking while I have a few days off. I’ve had this stamp set for a long time and it is always fun to pull something out of my stash. I decided to pick up on the roses on some of the cupcakes and repeat roses with the patterned paper. I colored the cupcakes with KaiserCraft gel pens that really work well with their 0.6mm tips for fine lines.
I created this card using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #250. Unfortunately, I forgot to link it over there until the deadline had passed! Oh well! I will be linking to The Paper Players current challenge, which is #309: Something Sweet. A group of stamping friends and I have been virtually getting together for two years, so we decided to make cupcake cards for the occasion and this is mine. Thanks for stopping by.

I created this card for a 90-minute scramble #138 on the Hero Arts Flickr site. Our challenge was to use solid stamps and outline stamps together. I used Distress Crayons directly on the outline stamp and spritzed it with water. I did a similar watercolor technique for the solid stamps and stems, only using Distress Inks. I added some water splatters and the sentiment to finish off the image. I then adhered it with a strip of purple cardstock and popped the whole thing up with dimensional adhesive.
