Be Amusing

  Finally got to play with my Distress Oxide Inks! I LOVE them! I love how they are so much easier to tint rayon ribbon too! Great product! Can't wait for the rest of the set!

  This lovely lady is from a Carabelle Studio stamp set called, "Woman and Bird". She is stamped right on the tag, then I stamped her again on card stock. Coloured her skin, hair with pencils. Glued her on the tag. Stamped her crown on card stock; cut out. Stamped her again on card stock. Tinted her dress with chalks; cut out and glued it on. Lots of paper piecing! My fav!

  The sentiment stamp which I stamped on a separate piece of paper then cut out, is from Impression Obsession.

  Acetate hearts from Heidi Swapp. Added some Stickles, here and there and TH Tissue Tape.

Close up.


  The back of the tag. Another sentiment stamp from Impression Obsession. Love this one! Stars are Heidi Swapp.

  Happy long weekend to my US crafty friends! Hope its warm where you are. Still single digits here! I think spring by passed us all together! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Be Prepared...

  Today we're off to a birthday party for a special person. Mike's cousin, Donald, is celebrating his 80th birthday today! 
  He is well liked and respected in his community. A long time boy scout leader and teacher. The event is being held in the community legion.

  My stash was lacking any type of boy scout, teacher stamps, or dies. I found this image and the Canadian Boy Scout book image, on the web. 

  The paper is from TH Dapper collection. I used postage stamp paper as the background, as he also collected postage stamps. 

  Words are TH Typeset Decorative Edge die. A metal button, drywall tape and a pen nib stamped image to compete the front. 

  The inside. Used ruler paper and lined paper with notebook punch, to represent his many years as a teacher. The words I printed off and cut out.

  The back. TH paper to also represent his career as a teacher.

  First card made in my new craft room. Still fine tuning!

  Hope you are having a wonderful long weekend!
