Grunge Birthday Card

Hi Bloggers! Sorry I have been neglecting my blog all week but it's been very busy at home and at work so I have not had much time for crafting. And to top it off, I caught a cold from my two year old, Ethan, so I'm trying to recoup and get better fast for all the upcoming events! Wow, wish I could stop time sometimes! LOL  Anyways, I wanted to share a male birthday card I made.  Since I couldn't really do my usual copic coloring of cute images, I whipped out my Tim Holtz stuff and went "Grunge" for this card.  I had so much fun!!! Everything is pretty much TH! I used his line of Kraft paper and used my distress tool around the paper.  I stamped on the tags with some TH random stamps I had.  On the tags, I used TH distress inks in "Broken China", "Brick Red", "Vintage Photo" and "Peeled Paint".  I used distress clear crackle paint in "Rock Candy" on top of the tags and thought it came out cute.  The bingo button is also TH.  I also used some crackle paint in "Vintage Photo"  in random spots of the card.  The brown button and twine are from my stash.  I also stamped "Celebrate You" on the card from two different stamps.  Hope you all enjoy it and have a wonderful week! :) Stay well!!!

Blush Bonnie Birthday Card

Hello!  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far!  This is card I made for a friend this last week. Her favorite colors are orange and green.  I don't usually use a lot of orange so it was really fun to make!  The paper collection I used  for the background of the card was Teresa Collin's "Linen Fabrications".  Such pretty papers!!!  The image I used is from the Greeting Farm stamp "Blush Bonnie" and she is so adorable!  I paper pieced her dress and socks also with the paper collection.  I used the "Lacy Scallop" Spellbinders die cut layered in two different sizes to place her on.  I also layered the bottom of the card with some trims from Frog Feathers and also KarlaS001's store on Etsy.  I also used some of Karla's small champagne pearls to line the green trim. The flowers are from I am Roses.   I added a pearl center for the small white crochet flower.  I altered the large rose which had an orange and white combination.  I thought it was a little too white so I sprayed over it with Tattered Angels "Wheat Fields", which muted the white down a bit and gave it more of a yellowish tone to match the rest of the card.  The rest of the flowers and leaves were sprayed with TA "Iridescent Gold".   I made a small banner and punched out some butterflies from the beautiful papers also.  I added some small pearls in the centers of the the butterflies.  My friend really liked her card and I hope you all do too! :) Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! I really enjoy and appreciate hearing all your sweet comments! :)  Hugs, Marcy

Birthday Card using Balloon Kaylee

Hello and hope you all had a great weekend! Where did it go?  I feel like it was just Friday! :)  I wanted to get more "scrapping" done but I barely had time to make some cards for my 1st card swap at the Scrapbeach.  I hope whoever gets my cards will like them!  The adorable image I used is "Balloon Kaylee" which came from a Some Odd Girl stamp.  I colored her up with my copic markers and paper pieced part of her clothing.  The papers I used for this and also the background of my card came from  Cosmo Cricket "Hey Sugar" collection. This is an older collection but one of my favorites! I stamped "Celebrate" on one of the background papers and made a banner out of it using a punch.  Behind Kaylee is a Spellbinder "Lacy Scallops" die.  I layers some lace below her.  The lace was originally white and I sprayed it with Tattered Angels "Vanilla Breeze" to give it that vintage look.  I also added a Prima teal daisy as an embellishment and layered a beige crochet flower on top of it.  I added a white pearl as a center.  Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week ahead!:)

Hope everyone has had a good start to their week after the Holiday weekend!  It has been pretty hectic for me and I can't wait for the coming weekend already!

Wynn Easter Card

Hello! This is an Easter card I made for a Scrappy friend and I used my 1st digi image on this card!  I just love all the "Wynn" images from Tiddly Inks and had to get some.  Also, I was running out of time for Easter! Lol  So the paper collection I used was Teresa Collins "Fabrications Linen".  I loved all the beautiful green and blue papers in this collection.  I colored up my image with my copics and popped her up on some layered Spellbinders (Labels Twenty-Three).  To the side tucked under, I added a white doily which I sprayed up with Tattered Angels "Wheat Fields."  I also sprayed the banner which says "Hoppy Day" with the same.  I added a small crochet flower sprayed with TA "Olive Vine" and added a ribbon buckle/brown pearl for the center.  The other flowers are from I am Roses and Wild Orchids.  They are sprayed with TA "Iridescent Gold".  I also added some Crystazzi bling to the top left corner.  Last, I added some Ice Stickles in "Mint Ice" to her barette.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful rest of the week! :)

Dressform Birthday Card

Hello!  I have been making a lot of cards this weekend and having a lot of fun! :)  Wanted to share a card I have made for a friend.  I've actually made different variations of this before but I really love the vintage look of it so the layout is one I'll probably use over and over again!  The background paper is from Recollections "Union Square" collection.  I absolutely love this paper and used a few different pieces!  I love the background paper where the bird is at the window.  It makes the card look like the inside of a cool room! :)  I took a chipboard of a dressform and painted it with red acrylic paint.  I also stamped right over it with a postage stamp.  I then added a piece of random Recollections bling. The cute brown lace trim around the dress form is from SA Crafters on Etsy.  The leaves are sprayed with TA "Olive Vine" and the  cute cherry blossoms are I Am Roses sprayed with TA "Iridescent Gold".  I added a small spool and tied twine around it so that it looked like a spool of thread.  I thought this added a cute touch! :)  Anyways, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! :)
