OCC: Stenciled Class Day 1 Inking on the stencil

This is the card I made with the color gradation from yellow to orange and then I also misted with perfect pearls while the stencil was in place! Just beautiful and a great tip.

Pretty simple with the stencil look and rub ons.

OCC: Stencil Class Day 3

On this day we were to use embossing paste and I used the snow stencil by Simon Says Stamp (SSS) with the white embossing paste.

 This is the card I created using it.  A word to the wise from experience it is better to start with the size you want as it is hard to cut down and get even edges…Added some stars from Studio Calico kit and some wood ones that I colored pink with distress markers. Added the sentiment from SSS stamp set onto vellum and layered it over it all!

May your day be blessed!

OCC: Stenciled Class Day 1

I have a few stencils and thought this class would give me some more ideas on how to use them and so the play began…

For Day one I created two pieces one that has a graduation of color and one where I did the stars yellow and then I off set the stencil and added orange in.

This is the card I made with the offset orange one. I added My handwriting for You are and sticker letters for My with some twine wrapped around and a puffy star with wash tape at the bottom.

I thought this would be either a good college card or graduation card.  Thanks for checking it out. May your day be blessed!

The Lilypad Forums Challenge Pad Month of Challenges - 2014 Jan. 2 Art Journaling

I had a lot of fun using a Collab Jump for Joy from The Lilypad.  I have not done a whole lot of Art Journaling but I thought it would be fun and it was! ;0)

Here's the page I made…

As you can see Austin was being very silly! Of course ice-cream always brings JOY to our household.

The Lilypad Forums Challenge Pad Month of Challenges - 2014 Jan. 1 Blind Scrap

I decided I definitely want to scrap more this year…I managed to accomplish more Christmas presents this past year (2013):calendar for my parents, Book for Bob of his Dad (more or less Project life style), Book for my Mom of our vacation to Canada (22 pages worth plus cover-front and back).  I am hoping to share some of it here soon.

I am starting a monthly (January) Challenge where you are to scrap everyday for this month with a given challenge over at the Lilypad.  It sounds fun- I hope I am up to the challenge.  Check it out and join me! ;o)
