My Hearts Pleasure


Retro Rubber Challenge #48

Good morning! We have a new challenge for you over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  Here is the inspiration for the challenge 

Here is what I created 

I used a Manila tag and distressed it with Tim Holtz vintage ink. Next I die cut the trees using the Sizzix thinlets and distressed with SU inks and painted the tree tops with a textured snow paste. I then cut the Stitched hills using the memory box thinlets and distressed then with SU inks as well and painted a snow line at the tops. For the the bottom layer I cut another Stitched hill and stamped the v bug using the Unity stamp set Oh Christmas Joy (released in Oct 2014) with momento black ink.  I colored the image in using my TH distress markers and then sponged the background with SU Soft Sky ink. To finish I dabbed some snow spots to create a falling snow effect.  I added the sentiment from the same set above the trees and then added some SU ribbon. 

Thank you so much for stopping today. 

Until next time 

Happy crafting 🙂


Retro Rubber Challenge #44

Good morning! We have a new challenge up over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  The inspiration for this challenge are these awesome colors Retro Rubber Challenge #44

I decided to use one of my Unity stamps.

Keep It Simple

I started with a Pacific Point card base and then added a layer of Lucky Limeaid.  I then took a piece of Whisper White and stamped my image and colored in with my copic markers.  Next I used some wink of Stella pens and flicked them on to create a splatter effect. To finish I stamped the sentiment using Stazon black ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
