About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Challenges: Week of 12/23/2013

Hi all:

I chose to do this card in a clean and non-traditional colors of Christmas theme.  I used a piece of acetate to create the base of the card and stamped the Christmas package image directly onto the acetate.  I then added a piece of white card stock into the inside of the card in which to write another sentiment or your greeting and added a scrap piece of lace that was dabbed with Concord Crush dye ink from Stampin' Up! I used an American Crafts metallic marker to color in bits of the 'package,' although it's hard to tell that it has any shine from the pictures.

One thing for sure is that if I take the time to try this again, I must remember to use my Stazon ink so that I don't have to deal with smudges.  Although the fun part of it was that when I did make a smudge, it was easy to wipe it off using a plain white tissue.

Until next time
