Cards in Envy “Motherly Love” Challenge

It’s Monday and time for another Cards In Envy Challenge.  As we approach Mother’s Day, our challenge will center around “Motherly Love”.  This is a very open invitation to be creative.  The rules are simple for this challenge and require only that your card fit into a A2 standard envelope.

Today, my card was inspired by Therese Calvird who designs for AlteNew.  My card uses the “Oriental Orchid” by AlteNew as well as AlteNew Inks.  The design paper is My Favorite things and the sentiment is Clearly Besotted “Best Mom”.

We look forward to your cards over at the Cards in Envy blog.  Happy card making!!

Technique Junkies – Black Cat

Hello Fellow Junkies!!

Kathy, The Crafty Nurse here.

It’s almost time for the September Blog Hop tomorrow and in preparation for that, I’ve created a Halloween card using last years September Release called “Black Cat #SD615”.  He’s stamped on a background of Distress Watercolor.

Please join us in the morning for the Design Teams showcase of September 2016 Technique Junkies release.

See you there!!

12 Tags of 2016: June – Tim Holtz

I’ve finished my June 12 Tags by Tim Holtz making several substitutions from the original but keeping with the offered techniques. I made a gold flag with Tarnished Brass Distress Crackle Paint, die cut the “dream” die by Tim Holtz and used Distress Crayons for shading.  I finished off with some Chit Chat words and twine.   I’m also entering this in the Mixed Media Monthly challenge for “Get Texty’.
