Believe Art Journal Page

I was so excited to get the new set of Seth Apter paints from PaperArtsy a few days ago.  I created this journal page using only those 4 paints, some brayers, a plastic circle (center of a tape roll) and a Seth Apter IO stamp. For some reason I felt like it needed a heart, but my heart is a little wonky. I mixed the buff with the Mahogany and it made the pinkish color of the heart. I wasn't planning on it being that pink, but it's ok. The Believe stamp is from a Donna Downey Unity Stamp Set called Inspire Words. I had fun playing with these colors that are a little out of my usual range.

Christmas Card Challenges #42 - Anything Goes

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. This week we have everybody's favorite "Anything Goes".  Christmas is only 3 months away so it's time to get started on your cards. I can't wait to see what you create!


For my card, I used a stamp set and die by Hero Arts called Color Layering Deer. I started by creating the background with a stencil called Evergreens from The Crafter's Workshop and Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays. Then I stamped the deer with several different colors of brown ink. The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.  I added some tiny pearls to make it look like it was snowing. I attached the white panel to a large piece of craft foam and adhered it to a card base made from Papertry Ink Limeade paper.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed Media Monthly Mid-Month Inspiration Post - Rustic Card


The theme this month over at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge is "Rustic." The design team were all sent very generous goodie boxes from our sponsor Canvas Corp Brands. Some of us had so much stuff we decided to make another project. So be sure to check the blog for some more amazing "Rustic" inspiration. Then, come play with us. Our random winner will get a $25 Canvas Corp Brand gift certificate.

I made a card using some beautiful 7Gypsies papers. I cut some flowers from the paper and adhered them with pop dots. I used my CCB lace by cutting it in half and dyeing it with my Tattered Angels Shimmer Mist. I cut some of my CCB yellow burlap into the shape of a tag and used words from my 7Gypsies paper. Finally, I created a bow with their pink twine, which I am totally in love with!!

Christmas Card Challenges #40 - Christmas Lights

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. This week we have a Word Prompt Challenge -  Christmas Lights.  What a fun subject. I can't wait to see what you create!


For my card, I used a stamp set and die by Reverse Confetti called Merry & Bright. I started by stamping lots of lights in different bright Archival Ink colors. I picked out three colors that I thought looked good together. Then, I covered them with Glossy Accents so they would look really shiny. I drew a line for the lights with my Faber Castell Pitt Pen and adhered the lights on the line. This is just a simple CAS card that was really fun to make. Thanks for stopping by!
