Good evening ladies,

These past couple of days I had the immense pleasure and privilege of attending the Fun Stamper's Journey 2017 annual convention. To say that I was a bit overwhelmed is definitely an understatement. Every person I interacted with was so kind. The journey crew and the hotel staff went above and beyond to make me feel welcome. I met cyber friends face to face for the first time and made countless new friends. I am grateful for Richard Garay's generosity, commitment, and enthusiasm. I have so many memories that I will always treasure.

As part of my convention experience, I decided to participate in a mixed media swap. Tonight's card is the card I submitted. It is definitely outside my comfort zone, but I decided to give it a go.

I initially stamped the background with the Vintage Notes background Stamp (SS-0303). I then used all the smaller stamps in the Bad Bones stamp set (SS-0336) using a slightly darker color ink, River Stone (IP-0063) I then distressed the entire border of the card using Bubble Gum Ink (IP-0058). The skull was embossed with white embossing powder and I added Black Journey Twine (AC-0004) behind the skull. To add a little sparkle and pizazz, I sprinkled clear silk over the front of the card.

I love the finished look! Thank you so much for stopping by. I will be posting some of the other cards I made for swaps for the convention.

Have a wonderful evening,

I love, love, love this butterfly stamp. Ok, I have a thing for butterflies - they're magical. For this card I use the vertical Z fold for the base. I wanted to create a dramatic look so I chose a black and white background to really make the colors of the butterfly pop. The butterfly was colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol makers, and I added a little bit of sparkle dust for pizazz.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Bit of Drama

It has certainly been quite some time since I have posted anything on my blog. I have been dealing with several health issues, which thankfully have resolved, but now I'm getting back into the swing of things. Today, I would like to share a project I concocted last night.

I really love the way this card turned out. I especially like the contrasts between the black and white background and the beautiful pink flower as the focal point.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


A Little Mixed Media

Today's card is a little bit of everything. I used watercolor paper, bronze silk, gesso, and a stencil to create the background. The beautiful flowers were colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Finally, I wanted to use an interesting fold technique for the card base. I intend to write s tutorial for this card and will post it sometime next week.

Thanks for stopping by!
