Yes, it is Day 4

But this is a Day 2 card.


I had an opportunity to use some of the sprays that I have collected.  I used Mister Hueys, Fireworks and some from Firewerks.  The background stamp is from Basic Grey, and  the sentiment is from the June Studio Calico Card Kit.


I have not used my Pearlex on cards before, and I really like the effect. Well, this is the end of my posts on background techniques.  On to text, sentiments and Day 3 classes.



Stretch Your Stamps 2

The gals over at Online Card Classes have whipped up a pretty FAB first day for the new Stretch Your Stamps 2 class. Honestly, I was on the fence about this one. Between work and life, the last class I took barely got enough of my attention to justify it. The class was good, but I was a bad student. So, I am trying again, and it has inspired me!


The background stamp is from Hero Arts.  The Awesome die is from a recent Studio Calico kit. The color is from Distress Inks.  The flair came from somewhere, but I do not recall.

Well, unfortunately, the night ended before I could finish my second card, and there were two more techniques from today’s class that I haven’t even tried yet.  Still, I am looking forward to new lessons tomorrow even if I am already behind!

Freshly Made Sketches #147

Today, I am trying out a new challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.


I used papers from Studio Calico’s Wanderlust.  The sentiment is from Shoot for the Stars by Simon Says.  I embellished with Studio Calico silver star sequins,  a spray of silver  IZink by Clearsnap, a found rhinestone and some silver twine.  I am happy with this one because of the monochromatic effect with an outer space feel.

The stamp is from Simon Says Stamps You Are Amazing, and this plays into the Wednesday challenge over at their blog this week. Check it out the submissions for the Glitter Challenge.
