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.

Distress Crayons...

"Distress Crayons"... Love them....

I made this card and used Tim Holtz Distress crayons... I didn't need or use anything special. I stamped the globe and embossed in black embossing powder and then used my new distress Crayons.  I love the creaminess (is that a word...lol) of them and how they glided over the cs. and then took my water brush and did my thing on the image.  Use my framelits that came with the stamp and embossing folder, to cut the globe and frames out. I used the globe embossing folder for the background and then used the Distress Crayons again over the embossed raised areas.  Used my framelit airplane and cut out using some washing tape and stamped the plane image on top. 
I  found that these Distress Crayons a lot lot more easier to use than the Faber-Castell gelatos.  :-)

Flipbook Craze...

"Flipbook Craze is here..." 

If you love to pen pal or just send some fun mail to a friend...this is for you.  Check out YouTube and type in Flipbooks... 

I am caught up in them too, and since I love to Pen Pal and write to my pals, I too love to send fun mail for them to enjoy and some goodies for them to use or just say "cute"... 
Better than those pesky bills in the ole' mail box right?... lol

I used my rubberstamps and also my library die to cut out the library cards.  I also used my glassine (sp?) bags for the goodie pouches. I also used my vellum that I have hoarded away... love vellum.  The vellum has embedded sparkles in the vellum.  

Here goes some looks from the front to the fully opened Flipbook...

"2016 Happy New Year" Crazy Birds...

"2016 Happy New Year" Crazy Birds...

I made this for a swap over on the Pl network.  For New Year's...woooo hooooo

I got these for Christmas and love them and the framelits that come with the Crazy Birds and the Crazy Bird Things...lol  

Here is what I did... I stamped and embossed on "Paint Chip Samples"... I'm not really all that good in coloring the Crazy birds yet, but thought I take advantage of all my paint chips that I've collected over the years... So they are my "Mixed Media type Crazy Birds" Enjoy and Happy New Year!

Pocket Letter Oranment Fun....

Christmas Ornament Fun...

I like everyone else love Target's Dollar Spot... And like everyone else dig through the bins to find those awesome fun goodies for our Pl or our planners and whatever else...lol

Last week, I ran across a pack of these wooden deer and and these cute Merry Christmas words and also I grabbed the tiny velvet bow ties.... :-)  

I decided to amp them up and use them on my pl to decorate the front for my Christmas Theme pl for my pals.

I sponged on some gold paint and then sprinkled some UTEE on top and used my heat gun to give it some interest to the deer and some texture.  I did the same with the Merry Christmas pieces too.  I then glued on the pieces on top of the deer.   Waaaaaaaa -laaaaaaaa

A cute Christmas ornament... Something cheap and easy and yet so cute.  Take a look... what do you think?

Pocket Letter Fun...
