Fri YAY!

Life has kept me pretty busy but yesterday I was able to sit down and create for a little while.  Here is what I came up with.

First, the card I made for my hubby for our 24th Anniversary. It is special because I have been a member of the Stamps of Life club for almost a year and this is the first set I have actually used.  (Thinking I may need to cancel that subscription,but the stamps are so cute… Who we kidding I just need to create with them more.)

Next, I tackled the My Favorite Things Color Challenge.  I usually do the sketch challenge but I mixed it up a little.

The colors were: Blue Raspberry, Blue Yonder, Red Raspberry and Black Licorice.  I added the yellow because I liked it AND there was a LOT of blues and it needed to be broken up a bit. I also used a Wink of Stella on the sentiment to add a little sparkle.

Then I was feeling like, hey let’s play with some embossing powder.  I am prepping for a class and thought what is something fun they might not do every day.  (I am an out of the box creator after all.)  I decided to play with rainbows and black. It POPS!  So after playing with my Distress Oxide Inks, I pulled out a rainbow of embossing powder and WHA-LA  this card happened.  (Needs refining but I like the concept behind it.) IMG_20180706_184039


I was on a roll, so I pulled out some stamps from My Monthly Hero Arts subscription, another one I love getting but rarely use…  I am a die hard MFT fan but I am really trying to get outside of only using Copic markers and MFT stamps.  I have invested too much money in the other stuff I have to ignore it.  (BUT I do really love MFT.)  I sometimes miss my job at FSJ too, they have a fantastic new catalog.  More on that later — but over 200 new products and new COLORS of Ink & Cardstock– much-needed colors!  LOVE the new stuff.  ANYWAY here are two from the HERO ARTS Monthly kits.  The first is the current monthly kit  (JUNE 2018)  the second is I think March of 2018, I’m not 100 % sure but I love the dies that came with that set.  That font is fantastic.

Well, that’s what I came up with.  It was overall a good day with the paper and ink!  Have a happy weekend.
