ATC cards

Here are a few of the projects I have been working on. I have been sick for a while off and on and its really cutting into my crafting time. I handmade the sequin flowers on the top. The punch is a Martha Stewart Butterfly. I stamped the sentiment that says Celebrate the Day. I used a Seal for the gold flower on the bottom.
For the second one I glimmer misted the card in Vintage Pink. I embossed the Eifle tower stamp in copper embossing powder. I inked the edges in walnut stain distress ink. For the adage ticket I distressed the whole thing in worn lipstick. I added popdots to the back of the tag and added a Tim Holtz memo pin to the backside of the ticket before I put the popdots down. I stamped the image and inked the edges in worn lipstick and added it to the memo pin. I finished the second ATC off with a vintage cream rose in the bottom corner. Thanks for looking.

Hoot Hoot

I just got the Give A Hoot cartridge for Mothers Day and made this card with it. You make this card by taking a 6X12 piece of cardstock and score it in half. I then took the front piece and again score it at three inches. I added a 1 1/2 inch piece of cardstock to the front along with some Queen and Co felt border. I popdotted the OWL on the front being careful to adhere it to the bottom three inches below the fold. Once you pull up the fold I added three Queen and Co rinestones to hold the card in place, finishing it off with an Autumn Leaves felt flower in the corner. I used Crate paper for the front of the owl and Bo Bunny chocolate dot for the wings and body. I added broken china stickles in the eyes to give the owl some character.I added a white journalling box on the inside and finished off the card with a message.
Thanks for looking.

Altered Art Board

I made this art board using a vintage photo from Visit her sight and see all the gorgeous stuff she comes up with. The flowers and ruffle at the bottom are made from Lutradur, a product put out by C+T Publishing. I love the versatility of this product. I used watercolors to paint the Lutradur and handmade the flowers and vine as well. You will love the versatility of this product once you give it a try. I Mod Podged the picture to the Art Canvas and used Smooch over the Mod Podge to give it the shimmer snow affect you see.
Thanks for allowing me to share,

Ok so I seem to be on a card making binge. I made this card this morning. I got a Big Kick recently so I could emboss things and use some bigger dies that my Cricut does not do. I used a background stamp and made it a focal point in the background of this card instead of an all over background. I embossed it in green and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's distress inks. I added fibers. I stamed, embossed, and chalked the bee's nsets and the birdhouse. When I get to the mail today this card and a package of goodies is on its way to Singapore. My friends youtube name is sillyfroghoneybee and she loves birdhouses so I think this card will be perfect for her.
Thanks for looking,
