Holiday 2016

I saw a card similar to this on the internet and wanted to recreate it,  It was made using Classic Crest Sawgrass paper cut for a top fold and Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps 2016 HOLIDAY DRAWINGS.  Inks used were Distress Forest Moss and Memento Rich Cocoa.  A 1/4 inch paper strip was cut in place of a ribbon.  The cabin and trees have Tsukineko Neon Amplify! White and Distress glitter added to highlight.  Hope you enjoy?

Spinner Card

Spinner card made using My Favorite Things "Hog Heaven" and Copic markers.  The card is a 4 1/4 square. The circle die used was one that the hogs would fit in.  A Circle die was used to fit the size of the card.  Three hogs were stamped and colored so they would spin around.  The designer paper was popped allowing room for the circle cut to move.  Hope you enjoy.

Creative Chemistry Day 3 Layered Collage


Have to say this is not a favorite final product, but I did learn technique from it.  My tag was covered in Collage Medium-Matte.  To this I added a printed tissue paper and added more Collage Medium.  The next step was to add Ephemera and more Collage Medium.  After this had dried I added Distress Crayons to give color.
