Art Journal Awesomeness!!

*click on the pictures for a closer and larger view*

Last night I had the privilege of attending Lori and Kim's once a month Art Journal Class. I had missed a few and it was a catch up night so it was a perfect time to jump back in. Anyone can join at anytime as it is a new technique each month! The past technique I was desperate to try was the one using Embossing paste as I loved the texture I saw in the samples they had. I used the Pearlescent embossing paste- you can see the shine better if you click on the pictures- and the Aspen Tree stencil by Crafter's workshop. 

Oh and lots of fun sprays by Dylusions!

If you haven't tried Art Journalling yet I encourage you to try it. So much fun!! Not only was the getting inky and messy fingers part fun but the ladies there last night and I had a blast together!!!

Cheers, Andrea

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving Everyone,

Here is my card for this up coming Wonderful Wednesday. I thought I would do a Child's birthday card. I used Tim Holtz new Packages and Bows die. Love this die, you can do so many variations with this die. The sentiment stamp is from JustRite Topsy Turvy Cakes set. The back ground paper is from Doodle Bugs.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Halloween Fun with Washi Tape

Andrea here with a quick Halloween card that I made!

When I was last at SGD I saw this AWESOMESAUCE Halloween Washi tape by Doodlebug and Queen & Co trendy tape. I layered the tape (and wished I bought a few more) and then added a sentiment and witchhat stamp from my stash. Some orange twine and a spider button that I also grabbed from the store. 

Can't see the sentiment? That's cause I stamped it in Versafine and then used glow in the dark embossing powder that I grabbed a couple years back at SGD. It is so cool!!!! 

Hope you have some Halloween Crafting fun too. 
And Happy Thanksgiving!!

Cheers, Andrea

Oh my, Couture Creations!!

Happy Friday!! Oh my, have you seen the new stuff from Couture Creations!
Dies, stamps and an embossing folder to match, perfect combo to make an elegant card! And there are differtent sets.
I stamped the flower, cut it out, and popped up the center. Then I used the embossing folder on a white piece of cardstock and used the stamps to fill in the borders, so easy. Spellbinders Majestic elements was used to cut the black layers. For the pearls I have used Viva ice white. I decided not to put on a sentiment, now I can customize it at the time I wanna send it.
                                            Till next time, Anja

Write On!

Hi Jeanne here today! 

I used my Big Shot to emboss my paper (Basic Gray) with the 658726  Ink Splats (and Wood Planks) Textured Impressions folder.  

I rubbed the raised (embossed) areas with brown ink. I then took a paintbrush and splattered some pink ink onto my background. I also used my paintbrush to hit any of the high spots that I missed and let the brown and pink ink blend together a bit. I sponged the edges with brown ink. 

I die cut my feather and ink well with my Big Shot.

I sponged the edges with brown ink and then added detail on the feathers with a light grey pen.  
Assemble card.

My Whole Heart Mixed Media Canvas

I made this little 6 x 6 mixed media canvas for my hubby for our anniversary.  It was a little late, but it's the thought that counts right?! Anyhoo..... 

I used the line Shades of Grey by Paper Loft for the background and the gears.  I may have a bit of an obsession now with Dimensional Embossing Paste!!  Once I layered it on through a Gears Crafters Workshop stencil and let it dry, I added some Glimmer Mist in Black Magic & Dazzling Diamonds, then used some Picket Fence Crackle Paint, and finally some Picket Fence Distress Paint dry-brushed on top. 

The paper gears were cut using a Tim Holtz Sizzix Die and covered with Black Soot Distress Stickles. Finally I sprayed a few little Maya Road wood veneer hearts with Postbox Red Dylusion Spray, and dotted a few bits of stickles around the gears to finish it off!!  

Have a crafty day everyone!!! OOH!!! And don't forget it is day one of our FAMOUS 12 HR SALE!!!  Make sure you check out all the goodies on sale!!
