LIFT INK...

I just got this in the mail on Friday and I couldn't wait to play with it.... Tim Holtz products are the bomb... This brings Alcohol stamping to a whole new level. #woohoo 
Go over to YouYube and find Tim's video on Lift Ink. He explains it and also demos on how to's.  You can't go wrong with Tim :)

I hope you enjoy his video as much as I do and love his products. :)

Here goes a card I created last night, I am going to be playing more this weekend with Lift Ink...

Wendy Vecchi Stamps...

Here goes a stamp set of Wendy Vecchi's that I bought at the Adventures In Stamping in April 2018..  I also took her class while there at the convention in April 2018... I just had a blast and she is so talented and sweet... Love her inspiration... I will also post the cards we made in her class too... But, this top card is what I made when I arrived home after the convention with one of her new stamp sets "A Bunch Of Art", I bought a few more stamp sets at the Stampers Anonymous booth too... Hell, I bought a lot there at the convention...lol   

 The second one here I #doubledembossed the background with two embossing folders and also used #wendyvecchi brick stencil in the background.  I wanted the background to look as if the vines and leaves are crawling on the brick wall.  These two stamps and are in the "A Bunch Of Art" stamp set along with her stencils to match up with the stamps.  I also used her new Blendable Inks.

These next three cards I made with the Owls were a kit that I bought from the convention in April of 2018 in Akron, I love the glittery background and how it showed through from behind and captured the owls...  So cute...

Thanks for stopping by, I know, haven't been here for a long long time, I'm trying to get back into blogging again.  Have a Creative Day...

Happy Fall Everyone..

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted or even been here on my blog.  "Life" and then I think there is no one really reading blogs anymore.  But I'm going to try and post here even if I don't have much to say and start posting what I've made and created again.  I haven't done a video in a while either, I'm hoping I'll get  a chance to do videos again too, 

This is what I've worked on lately... Love Fall/Autumn time of the year and love the colors of the leaves, the smells and sounds... like when the neighbors first turn on their furnaces for the first time in the evening when there is a nip or a chill in the air.  The walking outside and crunching the leaves under your feet and hearing nothing but silence during the day cause all the kids are at school. LOL
Putting a blanket on at night but still having my sliding door open in my bedroom to feel the crisp air and the breezes.

Anywho... here goes a card that I've worked on...I used the #polishedstonetechnique on the leaves....

Happy New Year...And Happy New Products coming in 2017....

"Tim Holtz... Stamp Platform".

I can't wait, I was watching all the videos out there from Creativation 2017 that was in AZ last week.
I saw a sneak peek preview from Tim Holtz video: click on link below to watch :)
Stamp Platform... I can't wait to get mine, and so glad I didn't pay an arm and leg for that misti, this looks sooooo much better and well built.  Hey, if Tim invented Stamp Platform, I do trust it's quality is top notch.  
I pre-ordered mine over at Marco Paper... here goes the link to Marco's... Click on link below..
I got free shipping and handling and also 20% off all pre-ordered things at Marco's.  I only paid $31.99.  Can't beat that, and if the Stamp Platform is 2lbs... wow!! The free Shipping and Handling is a bonus.  Love Marco's.

I also pre-ordered some of Tim's other goodies that will be coming out over the months... Espcially the "Hipster" stamps... Love them.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year and Happy Creating!!! :-]

Fall Art

Fall Art... Card and Mail Art....


I love Fall and the colors.  Can't wait for the cooler temperatures too.  This summer has been a hot one here in NW Pa.  I decided to pull out some glossy cs and alcohol inks and black embossing powder along with Dreamweaver's stencil dies.  I love how you can use the negative and also the positive letters.  I used the negative part to spell out Fall on the card.  Enjoy...

 I used some stamps and embossing and also paints and some gold embossing paste on the mail art envy.

More Postcards made for a Swap..

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted here to my blog... "Life" happens and takes away from the fun things at times...  Grin and bare it eh? lol   I made some more postcards.  I'm in a swap and have to mail out one a week for 3 weeks.  I had a lot of fun creating them.  I used a lot of mixed media things and like the way they turned out... I used my tub medium and also distress crayons and also some sprays and perfect pearls and sponges... mixed media...lol

I love the feather stamps I have and used perfect pearls on them with some washi tape... I made this one before, I like it and did another one. :)  The other two are using Heidi Swapp's stencils....
"Just be your beautiful self" is what the one says that has the Crazy Bird Stamp on the pc and the other one is "Enjoy The Ride" with the bike.
