Purple Bliss

Bonjour everyone! :D (Sorry I haven't posted in a while!) 
I just want to say I am so, so sad to hear about Papercrafts and Scrapbooking magazine shutting down. :( I felt awful when I heard the news. I'm going to miss everyone so much. :,( 

Anyway, I have a card to share! I've been stenciling like crazy lately, so here's a card using some stenciling! 



I stenciling the lines and "bliss" on some cardstock, (with watercolors I think? Either that or gelatos hehe I can't remember!) which I trimmed and adhered to a card base that I painted some purple streaks on. 


I added some gemstones and splattered some green color mist on top and also a piece of washi tape! :D 


I got a job as a cashier at a really nice grocery store! I start Monday and I'm quite excited! :D 
Today I went skiing! It was beautiful! 

That's all for me! 

Have a great weekend! 

Jesus saves!

You are my Sunshine

Hey all! Soooo this evening I have a very shiny, sparkly gold card to share with you. Take a look! 



The above photo lets you get a good look at how shiny the card is. :) 


I made a gold background using some ink and water. It's actually quite easy, and gives a lovely effect when it's all dried. The sun rays and sentiment are embossed, and the gold sparkly strips are decorative tape. 


Have a loverly evening my dear followers! It snowed here today, so I am quite happy. Maybe I can go skiing soon! 

Jesus saves!

Blue Chevron Hello

So I don't think I had much of an idea where I was going when I made this card, but it turned out pretty well regardless! :D 


I stenciled the little chevron pattern, then stenciled the "hello" on top. Layered stenciling, oh yeah! :D 



The black splatters were done with some high-flow black acrylic. Beautiful stuff, that. Expensive though, but just wonderful! I'm going to need to buy another bottle. 


That's all for me! I'm popping off for now! 
Have a lovely evening dear followers! 
Jesus saves!

Happy Mail!

Aloha my followers! Today I've got a Happy Mail card! Hehe I think I should mail this to one of my friends, it's such a fun and cheery card. 



I made this card a looonggggg time ago, like in last year hehe. I submitted it to Papercrafts Magazine...well it was still Papercrafts magazine back when I submitted it. 


I stamped the stars on the card, and also on the vellum pocket, which I adhered to the card with the cardstock strips. I also added the "happy mail" sentiment in black. 

Have a lovely evening! 

Jesus saves!

Sunshine

So this card doesn't exactly have a sentiment that makes sense. But, I made it awhile ago and have no idea why I didn't do a better one. But I think the card itself is pretty cool, so here it is: 


I did rotated using die cut sun rays and stamping some rays right on the card. 

And now ya can see that horrid sentiment. Well, not horrid, but it doesn't make sense. What use would most people have for a card that only says "sunshine?" Hehe, but whatever. I still love the card. :) 


I have a bit of a cold today, which means I wasn't able to craft at all. Ugh. Oh well. Perhaps tomorrow I'll be better. 
For now I'm just going to relax and watch something I think. 

'Tis all for me now!
