Spring Distress Ink Labels

I know, it is unbelievable but I have something else to post. Not that I haven't been doing anything creative but I mainly been dabbling in acrylics lately and also finally posted some of my attempts on my other blog.

When I saw the new set of Distress Inks - Spring.... I had to have them. The cool news is that now all the limited additions come with re-inkers. I had three Tim Holtz type labels pinned up on my office wall and I knew it was time to change the fall colors to something vibrant.
The first two cards I sprayed with water and then added droplets with the reinkers to make the background. On the first one I adhered dried flower petals from my birthday bouquet and do some random stamping and some doodling. On the second one I mixed some ink with modeling paste and used stencils to add the designs and a bit of stamping and doodling. On the third one I used the stamping pads to create a softer background and mostly fingerpainted some flowers. The ribbons are colored with the reinkers.

Now I have something bright and cheery to look at while working we numbers and medical data all day.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you all have a great week.

Birthday card

I haven't used the new Blogger and I have no clue how this is going to look.

Finally made a card again. No coloring just kind of simple. Last month was Dominique's birthday and I decided that I better make a card for my crafting buddy. She sure uses a lot more of my supplies than I do.

The cardstock is from Stampin' Up and the DP is from Webster's. For the flowers I used PTI felt and PTI flower dies and stitched them together with PTI buttons. On the inside I cut the DP with a Spellbinder's scalloped die and used the Whimsy Circle from Memory Box. For the corners I used the negative spaces for a little design. I love the MB dies. They are all so delicate. I do have quite a few of them but it is the first time I actually created with one. The saying is also from PTI and I do love the one on the inside.

I know that occasionally somebody will come and see if there is anything new on my blog. I am sorry to disappoint everybody. It seems there is never enough time to do all the things I love, including me leaving comments on your blogs. But be assured that I am checking in and seeing what everbody is creating and me wishing that I was one of you.

Thanks for dropping by....
