Steampunk Thank You...

Very masculine thank you card.  Took alot of time on this one.  The steampunk men are cone with the cracked glass technique and surrounded by a Distress Crackled frame.  The butterfly is grunge paper, colored with distress inks and covered in rock candy.  Lots of Tim Holtz!!

Love Love Love Configurations!!!

Here is my take on a Viva Las Vegas Tim Holtz Configurations Box!  I loved doing this, have another already started.  Not Las Vegas though.  You will see alot of Tim Holtz items from distress ink, to ideaology items, to dies, papers, as well as lots of other found items.

Boy Birthdays...

Well, you know my take on making boy birthday cards - I really struggle!! So, for these 2 cards to turn out, was a big surprise for me.

Made each piece of popcorn with one bigger circle, and two to three of the reinforcement centers from the Tim's tags die cut.  Sponged with yellow,  glued on the smaller circles, and glued another circle on top. Scrunched them up and glued them on!!  Made the little popcorn bag out of a paper bag.  Made the negatives in the film strip from acetate, and stamped on with timber brown staz on.  Stamped the popcorn logo on cardstock with stax on red, popped it with pop dots, and covered it with Rock candy paint.

Catch Up...

I haven't posted in awhile, so I am playing catch up!!

Made this card as a sympathy card.

 Birthday card with vellum and cardstock edged layers.

Welcome to a precious new Grand baby for a friend.

A friend graduated recently and is moving.  Just wishing her the best on her journey.

Another friend just diagnosed with MS, thought I would make her an inspirational card.
That's all for now!!
