Hey Chick says Have a Great Day

I decided to pull outa set from Stampn' Up called Hey Chick. Most of the cardstocks in this card are from the Treasures line from Paper Temptress.  I used the Crafty Brown Treasures for the base and the sentiment.. The Periwinkle set off  the brown for the second layer.

Now here is my simple technique for today.  The patterned layer is cryogen white. I colored it with distress ink and finger daubers.  I then took a stencil and sprayed it with water and put it down on the cardstock.  I laid a paper towel on top and pushed down on the stencil.  This helped to get rid  of excess water.  Remove stencil and dab excess water off of your cardstock.

The frame around the chicken is made from Goldenrod Treasures.  I needed a bright color to highlight  colored image so I used Mango Orange Treasures.  The image was stamped on Cryogen White.

Add a few rhinestones for some extra bling and there you have it.

A Camping Birthday

This is a birthday card for my son-in-law.  All the stamps used are from Stampn' Up.  I stamped in Memento Black and colored all the images with colored pencils.

The base of the card has shimmer to it and is Blumarino Incandescent.  The yellow layer is Sunshine yellow columns so there is a little texture there.  The main images are mounted on Opal Mica Metallic.  I did stamp lightly some clouds and grass and then distressed the outside.  All the images are stamped on Cryogen White with black Memento ink.


I have been trying to give a little easy technique in my posts lately.  So I have a second card today.

This card is only two layers.  The bottom layer is Epic Black thick classic columns.  This gives the back a little texture.  The card front is Cryogen White.  I used two colors of bingo markers to make the little monsters.  When you slam the marker onto the cardstock a spatter image is made. I added goggly eyes.  My grandchildren are 4 and 7 months.  This is just perfect.
