Quirky and Funny

Boy have I been busy stepping outside my comfort zone. First I got involved with scenic stamping using Stampscapes stamps and glossy paper, then I moved on to creating with alcohol inks and Yupo paper. 

But I didn't stop there, nope I moved into the paints (so outside my zone) and I must say I really do like the Nuvo embellishment mousse and pearl drops. 

Another product that caught my eye is the Dylusions paint series by Dylan Reaveley in conjunction with Ranger. The paint is vibrant and fluid and created specifically for journal page creations.

Well, I am a card maker so I had to figure how to use this paint to create my cards and that wasn't hard.  All these inks are so versatile and can be used in so many ways. I created several cards and would like to share a couple with you. I used digital images from my stash and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers.  The sentiments I used are all by Dylan Reaveley.

Although these cards are far from my usual style and so outside my comfort zone, I still hope they will inspire you and maybe even bring a smile. 

Both card backgrounds were created with Dylusions paint and stencils. I used a gel pen to add little bits here and there.  The sentiments are by  Dylan Reaveley in conjunction with Ranger. I love these sentiments because they are quirky and funny. 

So there you have my latest adventure in the world of crafting and paper.

Out to Sea

Hello Everyone! Can you believe how long it has been since I last posted anything? Well I found this new facebook group and I have been so busy interacting with the members and learning so much around using and creating scenes with Stampscapes Stamps that I have fallen behind on most everything else, but today I decided that I would get a post completed and share a card with those of you that still visit.

If you have a sailor in the family or know someone serving in the Navy then this little card might be just what you were looking for.

I created this card using stamps from Stampscapes and colored it with several dye-based inks using a Colorbox stylus tool and a few sponges. I used Recollections Navy Blue cardstock and Neenah White Cardstock. Very simple and easy to make but sends the message out to sea perfectly.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Get Creative - #68 No Pattern Paper (4/30)
Artistic Inspirations - #197 Anything Goes (4/14)
Always Fun Challenge - #52 Happy Birthday (4/7)
Little Patch of Crafty Friends - #79 Anything Goes (4/13)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment to say hello.

Look for the beauty in everything, everywhere and everyone.

International Women's Day

International Woman's Day means many things to many people and for me, it means that we should celebrate the accomplishments of women around the world and all throughout history. It also stands for individuality, being able to be you without fear of rejection and accepted as an equal gender. March 8th is the day that every woman should come together and celebrate each other. To all my crafting friends I want to say "Thank you for being you" I would want nothing more and nothing less. So in honor of women everywhere I share this card with you.

To create the card I used a Fancy Pants paper pad that I've had for a really long time and an image that is just as old and I have no memory of how I acquired it.

This card was easy enough to assemble, I used Copics to color the image, added a few brads and used more paper from the same pad to complete the inside. I did add a space for a personal message after the photo was taken.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simply Papercraft - #55 Anything Goes
Morgan's Artworld - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - #143Anything Goes
Polkadoodles - Wk #10 Anything Goes
Crafting With Friends - #62 Anything Goes
Colour Crazy - #10 Anything Goes

That's all I have for tonight. Thanks for stopping by and as always "Seek to find beauty in all things"
