Gina K Design Illustrators/Design Team Blog Hop and Challenge for July!

Howdy Ya'll!! This month's challenge from Gina was to use one of the videos from STV showing a technique she has done....so I chose to use the "Bleach as a Stamp Pad" technique. Here are the links:

If you want to watch on STV, CLICK HERE

Or you can watch it right here too!



And now here is my little project I did...I made a bookmark! Cause reading is the my 2nd obsession!! (right behind all things Gina K of course, haha!)



I used Nina's newest set, Hugs and Prayers, to stamp the flowers with bleach. Then I used the other image and stamped over the bleached image with white, did a bit of doodling and then stamped the words in white, the words and sentiment on the bottom are from the new Seeds of Kindness stamp set, and went over them cause they were not bright enough for me, lol. This bookmark clips over the top of the page, it has a magnet inside of it, covered over with the white cardstock. I think I will try to do a tutorial for everybody on this at a later date....but for tonight, on to more eye candy!!

For more projects from the other designers participating in the hop tonight, please check out these links:



Thanks so much for stopping by tonight! I'm off to hop too, love seeing everybody's gorgeous creations too!

Welll, I hope I dont bore you too much...

....but got another challenge card, lol! This time for the same thing over at the Moxie Fab World, but this time for the Shabby and Vintage Style Challenge. I love vintage things, most of them anyways...its so fun to take something and antique it up! This is what I did:



Shabby and Vintage...well to me that means, pearls, lace, little bit of worn look, oh and tulle! LOL! Got them all on here, along with another one of those buttons of my Grandmothers. I have two more of those buttons to use too, had a total of 4, lol! Anyways, I really enjoyed making this card, this def is one of my favorite styles! Although, I THINK most consider Shabby to be in pale tones, but I DO have a hard time with that and had to add the black, lol!

Ok, thats all for now. One more style to do and that is the 'Clean and Graphic' style...hmmmm..still thinking on that...the graphic part throws me off, haha! (is that the same as saying 'detail'???) Hope you are having a wonderfully creative week. We got a hop coming up on the 22nd, our monthly GKD hop! Cant wait! ANd then? lots of good fun things happening!! byeeeeeeeeeeee

Still playing with some challenges...

Hey all! Once again, another card for Card Style Week over on the Moxie Fab World blog, this time for the Classy and Elegant Challenge...and I had to ask opinions if this was, because I so struggle with the style! LOL! Ok, here it is:



I wish you could see this IRL. It is so sparkly! The colored panel has been spritz with gold glimmer mist and the embossed dots have a glitter pen added to them, just a touch, and you cant see any of that in this photo :(! This will be a good Christmas card, easy for mailing! I couldnt figure out where to put a sentiment on it, so it will be on the inside, lol! That's another thing I struggle with, adding a sentiment!

Ok, that's all for now! Hope you all are having a wonderfully creative weekend or at least a relaxing one! Thanks so much for stopping by, it means alot!

Kick up your heels! Zack is back!

I made this card after seeing the challenge over on Moxi Fab World to do a 'Fun and Cute' card. My sister was down this weekend and left this stamp set sitting out on the table, and Zack just had a fit to play! Now, Zack thinks of himself more as handsome than cute, but I told him to be quiet and just be cute for this card! haha! Here it is:



I think I will send this to my grandson. He has been sick lately, and doctor said yesterday it was a sinus infection, and he told me, 'Gammy, I sick...' in this all pitiful voice! But then he perked up really quick talking to his PeePaw! LOL! Anyways, I think he will like it, the ball is embossed with some UTEE and it really is shiny!!

Ok, thats all for now! Off to create some more today! I might be back later today even with another card!

When I saw the flowers I thought of Nina's newest set, Hugs and Prayers, with the striped flowers. So that is what I used, used the colors in the photo for my flowers! pretty and quick card!
