Wreck This Journal

Well now that Christmas is over I can get back to blogging regularly again. I really haven't done much scrappen or stamping the past week other then Christmas stuff and then I just needed a short break to spend extra time with the kiddos playing with all there neat new goodies.

My little Bro Nick is so awesome. He got me this book for Christmas. Its a journal that you wreck just as the title says. It is very inspiring for artist creating.
Remember all those years of the teacher telling your to color inside of the lines. Well here I got to color outside of the lines. I have always been kinda drumming to my own beat but this was kinda hard for me to do at first. But then I deciede that it was fun.

Then one night when the kids feel asleep I just started using what was even on my desk just sitting there. And started Gluing I won't call it a work of art but it was alot of fun and really got some ideas in my head that I have been playing with.

If you where inspired at all by this got check out Keri Smith's web site she has a couple other books that I hope to be getting soon http://www.kerismith.com/

I hope every one has a happy New Year

Believe and Merry Christmas

I did this card a couple months ago. But thought I would post it now because I can't show what I have been working on just in case family peeks on here.

The back ground I used alcohol ink on glossy paper. The Angel I stamped on Vellum and colored the back side of it. I stamped and embossed the Believe. The metal is from my stash of things I have found. I did use the alcohol ink on them because they where silver. The Stamp Set is from Crafty Secrets, Ranger Alcohol Ink, Copic Markers, and the fiber is from Basic Grey.

I hope every on has a blessed and Merry Christmas and remember the true meaning to Christmas. That Jesus was born to give us hope and some one we can always Believe in to be here for us. Jesus is the Reason the Season.

I will show what I have been working on after Christmas when my family gets there gifts.
God Bless and Merry Christmas

Once Upon a Time and CoCo Dreams TSSC48

CoCo Dreams

Here is this weeks Techno Stampers Sketch Challenge (TSSC48)

The Cup Stamp is from Unity Stamps. I colored it in with Copic markers. I added Liquid Applique to in the inside of the cup to give it a Frothy Look to it . I added some high lights using a white pen. The lace I used was was off white so I just colored it with my Copic so it would match the mug.

Stamps: Unity
Ink: Ranger and Copics
Paper: Basic Grey and Bazzil
Other: Liquid Applique and Lace

Once Upon a Time
Last night I was having kinda wave of creativity. After a bad that is and I just started ripping, cutting, Stamping, Glueing. All I can say is I felt alot better after doing this little wall hanging. I was in needs of Gods Angels but I didn't have any angels to play with so the next best thing is butterflies. Next to Moose Butterflies are my favorites.

Well I started off with a peice of 6x6 basic Grey paper. Then I ripped a peice of paper from Flower Soft and distressed it with ink. The top layer of paper is Mulberry I stamped on it and sprayed it with water and the did the same stamp over it again but just in a few spots. All the stamps, Stickers and the Angel Image (the only angel I could find in my stash) are all from Crafty Secerts
The wings on the Little Princess are two layers. The bottom layer is just the wings stamped on Star Dream Paper and the top layer is on vellum and then colored the underside with Copics. And I "pop" her up. And I just love Stickling Things.
I finished it off with some buttons and ribbon in my stash. This was alot of fun. And durning it God reminded me that He's here with me no matter how bad of a day I have. And today when I was going though one of the board I belong too some one did a tag with this verse that went along with what I was feeling.

Romans 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.

Supplies (I will Try to list them all)

Stamps: Crafty Secerts

Ink: Ranger, Distress Ink

Paper Basic Grey, Flower Soft, Mulberry

Other: Stickles, bling, Ribbon and buttons from stash, Sticker and Cotton Scraps from Crafty Secerts

I think I'm going to try some more wall hanging I really enjoyed doing it. And I don't have to worry if it fits in an envelop

Moulin Rouge Card

I just am loving this card. I don't know now if I"m going to give to the person I intended it for. I might just keep it. I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the corset and added ribbon to the bottom of it. I use Crafty Secrets French Mail stamp set I also Crafty Secrets Journal notes and Stickers on this card. The script on the upper left was made using an embossing folder in the Cuttlebug. I used alot of Distressing Ink on this card I also used the Distress Stickles and Embossing Powder.
On the inside of the Corset I stamped a bra from Crafty Secrets Support the Girls Set. On the inside I"m going to Write Merry Christmas you naughty boy looking in a girls Corset.

I hope every one is having a Wonderful Christmas Season.

Just some Christmas Cards

Well I tried out for the SUInk DT but I didn't make it and that's okay cause I just love making cards these days. Well here are some of the cards I used when I tried

For this card I cut out the scalloped circle using the slice and cut a window on the top of the card. As you can see I Stamped the Santa on the inside. The pattered paper is from Doodlebug and
I love SUInk Oh Holly Night Set. Thats where this Mary stamp is from I colored her in with Copics

I just love this card I made it for my hubby one day.The paper is from Creative Imaginations. I also used Grunge board and sprayed it with Tattered Angels Gimmer Mist. The stamps are from SUInks Kiss the Cook Set.

Well I hope every one has a great weekend. I'm going to be creating tonight and tomorrow after the tree is up. Sunday it sounds like we are going to be getting a good winter storm so that makes for good stampen and scrappen weather. Hopefully I will get some of my Christmas projects done so I can get some challenges done I have been wanting to do.

White Snowman Card Whachadoin' Wednesday 17

This week on the SUInk Blog the Whachadoin' Wednesday Challenge is to make a card using 90% white. I'm not sure if making the card mostly white or getting a good pic of a mostly white card is more difficult. I think I"m going to cast my vote with taking the picture. I think I'm going to try to retake it again tomorrow if its sunny out.

The Snowman is from SUInk's Santas Little Helpers set. I used Color Box ink to stamp him and used Glitter embossing powder on him to add a bit of sparkle. Then I matted him on some Bazzill Cardstock. For the back ground I just ripped strips of white paper and put it on a mat. Not much to it but I really do love how it looks. I really want to try tomorrow to get a better picture of it with natural lighting.

Stamp: SUInk Santas Little Helpers
Paper: Bazzill and The Paper Company
Ink: Colorbox
Extra: Glitter Embossing Powder

note I changed pictures I do like this one better then the first but I'm still going to try again in the day light

Leaf it to Tirzah Let's Dec. Lets Scrap DT

For Dec Renee had a sketch for us but for some reason I am not getting it to copy and paste or down load right now. Make sure you check out the Let's Scrap Design Team Blog.

I started by matting my pictures on orange CS and using Spiced Marmalade Distress ink
on the edges. I used My Slice to cut out the tags behind the two smaller
pictures. I used Pine Needles and Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the tags on
the large mat.
