Stamped Background Thank You Card

My third post today… I think everyone is sick of me by now, right? LOL. That’s okay, I’m sick of myself too… Sometimes blogging really just takes up so much time! But, I only do this for your comments 😉 Just kidding.

Starting with a piece of plain white cardstock, I began to stamp out the background. Yep- that ‘patterned paper’ was all me! Even I’m proud of myself that I didn’t make too huge of a booboo out of it.

I distressed the edges with Distress Ink and then with a distressing tool thingy. This green ribbon here I had saved up from… Goodness knows when, but it was when someone gave me an Origins gift set some time back, way back when I didn’t do papercrafting or anything of the sort. You see, I was already drawn to grosgrain ribbon! It was destiny.

Added some sparkle with some stickles! Mmm multicoloured glitter sparkles….

Something new: I received my new Spellbinders Labels 18 (which are wonderful) and embossed it in a lux gold 🙂 And then I wanted to put some gold pearls. And then I ran into a problem, you see, I only have the white/cream ones! D’oh!!! So, being quick-witted and all (ha!)….

Top Tip: Don’t have the right colour pearls or bling? I know, everyone’s heard that you can use Copics to colour them but I live in a cave and don’t use Copics so I did what any other sane person would do, which is to PAINT the pearls! Here, I used my Adirondack Metallic Gold Acrylic Paint dabber and just pounce the dabber onto the pearls, aim a heat gun because I have no patience like that, et voila!!!!!

All right, I’m done being chatty. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Huggles for all and have a great crafty day! xx Stephinka

MIM #33 Try 2 and more cards!

I just had to give the MIM another go- I love this technique! It’s so easy and the effects are just so soft and pretty 🙂

I used Harvest Berries from Papertrey Ink for the first time since I received them… proud of myself for inking it up finally 😉 The sentiment is from Year of Flowers: Gladiolus.

I also made a baby card with Hanging Out- this is my first and last time using this set unfortunately… Baby cards just aren’t my style I think, so today they are going out to the post office to be sent out to their new owner in Australia ^^

Birds on clothesline are usually bad news, but Little Bitty Bird is so adorable here, I just had to add him ^_^

Something else I’ve been working on is a gratitude journal… using well, the Gratitude Journal set!

I sew together a little A2 sized booklet with pages of notebook paper… music sheet paper…

And some projects that I’ve not posted!

Phew, big post!! Thanks for visiting! Leave me a comment, I’d love to visit you too 🙂 Hugs to all!
