October cards




Fun cards, colored using zig clean color on chameleon card (still learning to color). Distress inks were used on the astronaut, monster (Jennifer McGuire technique) and parrot card.

Below cards were foiled using foil gel and stencil - My next attempt will be using Gina K technique with stamps, gel and foiling.

World Cardmaking Day!


Eclipse card using KNK Force for letters. Stampin Up and Visible Image stamps were used on the Hope card and Hero Arts on Love (which glows in the dark)

Hero Arts used on card below and I believe a spellbinders embossing folder; you can't tell in the picture but the card really sparkles. Fun Times!

Cards below were made using Gina Marie's die cut.

July 15-16 Cards

First one was Hero Arts July kit stamp. Used a stencil and oxide ink for the background. Colored the flowers with my Zig Photo Twin pens. The pens are for coloring on photos, but I've only used them to color stamped images.

Visible Images stamps (a new favorite), Background was made using my Art-C Groove blending tool (it's an awesome tool) with SU inks and number stencil. Clock hands were cut on the KNK Force

My favorite card this weekend. Stencil and oxide ink, stamped images and sentiment. Then decided to color girl using oxide and other inks with my brushstix (need to use those more)

Another Visible Images stamp (man) with Gink K (sun/palms) and Tim Holtz (sentiment) stamp

Pink-grey Card set and more

 Used Stampin' Up Twirly Bird die cuts and a variety of stamps for this card set. The grey card stock is the new Michael's heavy card stock; I really like it. To die cut I had to put it through my Big Shot 3 times.

These cards were ink mixed with water (on a craft sheet) and then painted on shimmer paper that I bought from cutcardstock.com.
