Life of a Card Maker - Week 3

This card maker didn't have much of a life this week.  I've been really busy at work with it being registration week and classes starting.  I did manage to sneak in a few little creative moments.

I squished in some time to get inky!  Setting up an embossing resit is always so easy.  Little stamping with some VersaMark Ink and a little embossing powder.


This time the inking was done with Distress Oxides. If you saw the Thank You card post on Tuesday then you know how these turned out. 


I created my second Casing Pinterest card.  You can check out the inspiration and the card I created in Yesterday's post.

Always waiting for glue to dry...


If you follow me on Facebook you might recognize some of the bits in the previous two photos.  Those waiting for glue to dry pics are sneak peeks at the cards I'm making form the card making challenge my bestie and I have started doing together.  More on that soon!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend.  Here's to lots of crafting and staying warm if you're part of all these crazy snow storms and cold weather snaps.

Casing Pinterest - Happy Birthday Watercolor

This week's inspiration is from this pin from Lindsay Amrhein's blog Outside the Box.


My version uses a die that I got at the Scrap Tree when I was home over Thanksgiving and I used my Vintage Artista Watercolors.  I've linked to the other products I used as well as a set of Prang Watercolors.

Inked Thank You Cards

While watching one of Kelly Latevola's videos the other night she said something to the effect of figure out what you really love doing and perfect it.  It's not a direct quote and she's mentioned it a couple of times in other videos, but for some reason, it really resonated with me a few nights ago.  For me, that always seems to come back around to getting inky, mostly with Distress Inks or Distress Oxide Inks.  Let the linking begin!


Techniques Used:

Distress Oxide and Distress Ink Blending
Embossing Resist
