Kids Birthday

 I have two cards finished for my great niece and great nephew, so I thought I would share them together.

  • Great Impressions - G423 stamp colored with/markers
  • Kat Scrappiness - Mini Slimline Stitched Rope die
  • Hero Arts - Fabulous Birthday sentiment
  • Cheery Lynn Designs - Alison's Ribbons die
  • BasicGrey - Two scoops paper
  • Sequins

This next one I tried inking my embossing folder with distress ink and then running it through my machine to transfer the ink to the paper, well I did this a few times and this was my results, then I added some lunar paste to it also, well I am not totally thrilled with the outcome and why did I not just go with some pattern paper instead but no I used the background and had to get it in the mail.  I am sharing my good with my bad cards.  They all don't turn out like we want.  I have since saw someone using the oxide inks and they said you get much better coverage so next time I will try that.

  • Lifestyle Crafts - Birthday embossing folder, used Distress ink directly on folder before embossing
  • Lunar Paste - Sike! over raised areas of embossing folder
  • Mama Elephant - Dos Amigos stamp set, colored w/markers
  • Darice - Nesting wavy squares die
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and letting me know you have,

Two fun and fabulous cards Connie, I really like the cat and beautiful papers..the second card may not be what was in your head but to me it is grunge, and I love grunge, love the texture and splotchy colours, just makes me want to go and make a grunge background now..
