Better late than never........

Well hello all..... It's been a bit since I posted and it's not because I have nothing to share but because work has been good.  So now on to my latest cards. 
 This birthday card was for a dear sweet man who is the hubby of a dear friend, and as you can tell he loves to bowl, LOL.....

 This card was for one of my hub's friend's birthday.  I used my old stamp scape stamps on this one and marvy ink.....


 This framed piece was a gift for my Hub's Aunt for her birthday and the card below was her birthday card.... both water colored using Art Impression stamps....

And this pretty parchment  card is for my neighbor and friend, whose dad passed away on Saturday from a long battle with cancer.  I used a Groovi plate from Clarity Stamps and distress markers to color from the back.   
Well that it for now.  I do have 2 more Parchment cards in the works but not done yet, hopefully soon.
Thanks for popping in and looking.  Feel free to leave feedback, i read every comment y'all leave me.....  :)

Until next time

Water Color Cards

Good Morning all.  Hope everyone is surviving the summer heat and rains.  We have been some hot hot weather, over 100 daily and a couple freak storms..but we are good so far!  I made a few more water color pics and made them all into cards yesterday.  All in all I ma happy with.  Still trying to get an handle on how much water to have on the brush but it's coming along.  I used mostly Art Impression stamps, my favs, and the cad with the boot I used a stamp from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, love their peg stamps too. Will show those off soon..... here are the cards I ended up with.  Hope you like them and thanks so much for popping by.

Artsy Birthday Card

Hello there.... How is everyone?  It's been really hot here in my neck of the world....but I love warm weather luckily, LOL.  I made a fun birthday card for my niece who will 17 next week.  She is quiet a good artist, she draws so well, it amazes me.  So I made her this card.  Used water color markers scribbled on craft mat and sprayed with water then used a paint brush to tap bits of color all over the card then added the jar with brushes and the sentiment, both with foam tape.  Oh and I added glossy accents to the jar and a bit of silver paint pen to the metal rim... And then I made a booboo. I dropped the ink pad on the bottom left corner of the card and almost screamed.  But I decided to ink up the edges and see if that made it look any better, well not great but Hubby says it looks like it was meant to be there.  And being I need this in the mail today it will stay as it is, even if I a think it's not right.  No time for a do over this time..... So here is the card, tell me what ya think about the ink booboo... Yay or Nay?


Until Next Time

2 cards done today

Hi all.  I found myself with some time today so you know I had to get some cards made.  So for today's cards I made a frame for one of the scenery cards I did a while back.  I just wet the paper and added Tombow marker ink with a paint brush and let it do it's own thing. Then cut a circle in the middle with a die and cut to fit the scenery, I love it.  Then just added the Happy Birthday sentiment.  This going to a male friend who loves being at the lake..... The next card is for an online friend who is just a super lady and I wanted to let her know it.... I used Art Impression stamps, water colored with Tombow markers and cut the scene out with a circle stitched die.  Then cut two larger circles and attached them to card .  Here's hoping she likes it.  I even put her name on the wooden post.  I am pretty happy with both cards.  Now to clean up the mess and get ready to my Mama out to dinner in a bit.........  Thanks for popping by.

Until Next Time,
Tootles

Playing around with Scenery Stamps


Hello again crafty ones..... I have been wanting to try my hand at some scenery stuff. I have very few Stamp Scapes and a few more Art Impression stamps so I was able to make 2 different scenes. Here is what I stamped out. Need a little more practice but I still like these. Not sure they will be made into cards or not, but I like what i am doing so far .   What do y'all think, Keepers or try again?

Until Next time

Baby Girl Shower Card.

Well hello all.  Hope everyone is enjoying the summer so far.  I made a cute Baby Shower card for friend's Daughter in law.  I am going to her shower Saturday morning so I had to make a card!  We know it's a girl she's having & I went with the nursery colors for the card.  I used Stampin" Up layered Bear stamp in pink, grey and black distress inks.  I also stamped a stripey background (Catherine Pooler stamp) in the pink and grey ink then added the scrap paper and popped the bear up with foam tape after fussy cutting it out.  Added the pink stamped bow from the bear set also.  I think it's cute if I do say do my self.  I added the the pink homemade bling as an after thought.   So there you have it.  What do you think, Cute ? 

Thanks for popping by and I'll be back soon with more to share.  Have a great and hopefully crafty week!  

Until Next time
