Wine Time

I created this fun background while craft Zooming with my sister over the weekend. I made a few different backgrounds for using someday or today in this case. 

I really love how the Rusty Hinge and Peacock Feathers look together.  I did that thing where you apply some ink to the stencil, spritz it with water then smoosh it onto the paper.  I also used a bit of tiny bubble wrap with Hickory Smoke to add just a bit of that.

To finish this card, I added the bunny image, colored with Copics, and paired it with a Studio Light Art by Marlene sentiment sticker. 

I'm entering this in Simon Says Monday Let's Be On Time, Simon Says Wednesday Make Your Own Background

Hello, Foxy

I've been in a mixed media mood lately. Maybe because it's messy and I don't plan it like I do my regular cards? In any case, I'm enjoying myself.

Foiled Leaves

I found this card in the mess that is my desk while I was post-holiday cleaning.  This is the first card I made when I got the Spellbinders Glimmer machine. I love those leaves so much. Plus Autumn, plus glitter, plus foil.  Win, win!

Mod Moose

I splurged a lot this past holiday.  Zero travel costs = extra craft cash!  There was just something about the Power Poppy Forest Fellas set that really drew me in.  Quirky and cute was the order of the day apparently.

I'm entering this one in Christmas Kickstart #46 Such a Deer (or similar creatures), Make My Monday #139 Something New in Your Stash (all new dies and stamps for me), and Simon Says Wednesday Layer It Up.

Duluth Bear

This card is full of fun new stuff with a smattering of really old.  For the new I have the Power Poppy Forest Fella set, the Sizzix Tim Holtz 3D woodgrain embossing folder and the Tim Holtz pinecone dies. For the old I have Stampendous Chunky White embossing enamel I bought as part of a sampler from many years ago. I love the chunky snow look.

I used Distress Oxides including Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo and Rustic Wilderness, to color the background and pine elements. I used Zigs to color up the bear. There’s something about him that reminds me of the Duluth Trading Co ads. LOL.

SOSS #176 - A for ATC

Ready for the New Year?  Yeah, me neither.  BUT, I am ready for a new Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #176 Artist Trading Card.  This is my first such card and I loved it!  It's small so easy to fill. I also liked the opportunity to go off the edge with the design.
