Life is Good


This is my last minute take on the sketch.

Here is how the card is made:

I have embossed with using the tree folder, inked it with browns and blacks to make it as realistic as possible. I know the winter is almost here but I am not ready to let go of the happy greens and yellowish colors. The sentiment went so well with it. Life is good.

When I have a sketch to play with, I always want to take it to a new direction. Not only to challenge myself but to get different variations.

This is my second try for Just Rite Sketch:

This card was one of those that came out differently that I was planning.

I used Just Rite "travel" background stamp to get my globes. I sponged everything to make it look older. I wanted to get an idea of treasure map,
 I used Cherry Lynn dies for this card ( circle and borders). 

Originally my sentiment was suppose to have air balloon.... didn't like it. So I used Just Rite "manly" stamps... That's right I have my own names for the stamps ( sorry JustRite).

I used Tim Holtz compass, embossed it in gold. Added some threat and the card ended up being more manly then when I try to make a manly card lol.
I have used few JustRite sentiments. I mixed them together. I am really loving backboard art lately.

Playing with UTEE


I found new technique.
Its using melting pot and then stamping into melted UTEE. It looked amazing so I had to try it. I looked at different youtube videos on how to make it and thought I can probably try it without the melting pot.
I got my UTEE but while I was at Michael's choosing UTEE I saw that melting pot cost almost $60. Crazy!!!
 Here is the card that came out of my attempt:

I have melted UTEE on the silicon banking mat. It took forever! I will defiantly buy melting pot just have to find on sale. I melted about 3-4 layers of UTEE and then used JustRite background stamped into it. Before starting I have rubbed the stamped with pearl-ex power to add the color and shine.
It came out pretty good. To me it looked like a frost on windows.
I used JustRite stamp for everything here.

This card was made using JustRite challenge layout:

I have created card for Cheery Lynn Vintage Challenge.

Whenever I think Vintage, for some reason, I think Paris. So this is what I did.

I used Embossing Folder from Tim Holtz collection, distressed edges, inked up the raised parts and just all over where I felt the color needed. I have created flowers added little pearls on the petals and bigger pearls all over. Used sentiment from JustRite and put it all together.

This card actually took a long time to make. It's not because it's super complex, only because it took me a while to figure out "how" I want to put it together.

One of my friends said that I should open my own business and sell the cards I make. But if it would take me that long to figure how to make cards, my business would go bankrupt. :)
Besides the moment something "I love" becomes something "I have to do" ... it's not longer fun for me.

Easel card- Last One


I really had fun experimenting with easel style card. This is the card card I came up with for the challenge.

Not to long I got as a present Penny Black stamps, I really like them. Specially cute characters. For this one I decided to use my fav quote about love. "Love is Patient"
I created the shape of the easel by using spellbinders. I used black card stock and stamped penny black-love is patient stamped. I wanted to have blackboard feel.
I used JustRite background stamp to create the damask background. I used gelatos to add color. Used Just Rite rose stamp. Stamped it 3 times and layered it. Added glitter glue & pearls.

Easel Card - You Are Beautiful


Here is how the card created:

I used Spellbinders rectangules to cut out shape. I couldn't figure how to put it together. So I decided to use the "go to" design. I've cut rectangule stampped JustRite background stamp and embossed with clear and used gelatos to add color.

I used spellbinders shapes to put the sentiment together. I love the JustRite sentiment "kit". I can create my own wording. The flowers I have used out of my stash. I am not sure where they came from. added lace and pearls and it's done.

Easel Card- winter


When I was trying to go my first easel card, I thought I made mistake with my circles, but I didn't. I ended with 2 cut outs for easel card. I figured might as well make two. Plus I haven't even started on Christmas card. I am just not ready to switch seasons yet.
After Halloween then... maybe... :)

here is my second easel card:

I have used Inkadinkadoo stamping tool to create the dolly. I have embossed it and used gellatos to create background. Used JustRite sentiment added ribbon, snowflakes, glitter glue and Done...

Easel Card First Try

Hi ladies,

I've been so busy with work that I have been neglecting my creative time. I don't stop thinking about it but just don't have enough energy to do it.
So this weekend I have decided that I am going to make at least 1 card for Just Rite challenge. I have co many pretty stamps and it's pity that I don't use them.

So here is my easel card:

Like many of us I don't do easel cards often. I have no idea why, they are super fun and relatively quick to do...... Actually I just figure out why... I am to lazy to finish inside of the card... lol. And easel card ... I kinda have to finish it.

So here is my card:

I have used JustRite background stamp, embossed in clear and used  gelatos to create the background.  The I stamped butterflies , color & cut them. There is only 1 butterfly that I used from inkadinkido. I've stamped butterflies on the embossed background to add as if they are all rushing up. :)

I cut out my shape using Cherry Lynn circles. A little bit of glitter glue on butterflies and perfect pearl here and there and it's done.
