Celestial Thanks

Hello Crafty Friends! Today it's back to my roots. I haven't made a shabby chic and layered card like this in ages. When I saw this cute fairy by Marina Fedotova I knew instantly that she will be colored with distress inks and put on a shabby chic card with lots of layers and die cuts. Here is how it turned out: The adorable fairy is called 'Angel Celeste' and I colored her with distress inks (see list of colors used below). The sentiment is the NEW Thanks Word and Shadow die . Both the fairy and the word die are available in the store now. The leaf die cuts I used to decorate my card are from the Leaf Foliage2 die set and from the Christmas Branches die set. I also added lots of flowers from my stash, metal embellishemnts and cheesecloth.  To complete the look I've sponged some of the paper layers, die cuts and flowers with white gesso, added different shaped pearl embellishments and  Stardust Stickles .  Here is a list of dist

Even more Paper Door Inspiration - Keep Calm And Waddle On

Hello Everyone! Did I mention that I am completely smitten with these cute  PAPER DOOR  Penguins called Penguin Farts? Oh my and these gorgeous Designer Papers that are also included in the kit *swoon*. On my newest creation I showcase these pretty papers: In addition to the  PAPER DOOR  contents I also used the NEW    Quick Strips die set  and Handstitched Nested Rectangles . Before mounting all the different Designer Paper die cuts onto my card I sprinkled the white background panel with Dusty Concord Distress ink.

Love You to the Moon and Back!

Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends! I am here today with a cute extraterrestrial card :-) I just love these little alien monsters from the  A Boy's Dream clear set. I combined the set with the Moon Background  rubber stamp for my outer space card. To make this card I started out with making my galaxy background. There are many different ways to make these galaxy backgrounds. You can use distress inks, watercolors, spray inks etc. I combined two techniques and used spray inks and distress inks together. I sprayed various bright ink colors on a panel of mixed media cardstock and let them dry. I prefer mixed media paper for inking and spraying techniques over regular cardstock. They ink up easier, blending is like a dream and they wont soak through. I used Distress Spray inks (broken china, picked raspberry, wild honey) and Heidi Swapp color shine sprays (citron, teal). You can use whatever spray inks you have on hand. After everything had dried thoroughly I started
