Sharing a shaker card I created using Stampin' Up stamp set Bunch of Blossoms. As well as a Scraptastic Stamp Set.

I started by stamping and embossing the blossoms with white embossing powder. Then I colored with with Tim Holtz Distress Markers. The little jar I stamped on a transparency with Staz-on Gold ink. 

I cut the flowers and jar. Layered then and created my shaker card. I add a bit of Zig Wink of Stella on the flowers. I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I also add some itty bitty star sequins on the side of the jar just above the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by. If you create a shaker card please link me to your project.

Today, I am sharing a mermaid card. It seems that everywhere you look these day you can find a mermaid. I thought they where hard to find - you needed to be at sea for many days. lol

So, here is a little about my mermaid. I used a Recollections stamp by Michaels. I colored her with Copic Markers, I then added highlights with a  white Gelly Roll pen. Then I added some twinkle with a Zig Wink of Stella pen in Clear Glitter. For the background I use Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads  and the stencil that cam with the stamp set.

I then stamped the fish, star fish, sand dollars, coral and seashell with various distress inks and Stampin' Up ink. I use Stampin' Up Dapper Denim ink for the sentiment and tiny bubbles.

Finished it off with some Zig Wink of Stella and tiny star sequins.

Thanks for stopping by. If you create a mermaid project of your won leave me a link I would love to see it.

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I sure did! Mother's Day was so much fun. I got to spend the day with my children and my hubby. It just happened to be my hubby's birthday as well.

Now, I wanted to share a layout with you today. It's a mixed media layout. I layered chipboard hearts onto cardstock then gesso over them. I then put Heidi Swapp colorshine and paint on top allowing it to run down the page. once dry I stamped on the layout. Then I created my layout. I foiled the star wood veneer then sanded it a bit to create a grunge rocker look.  Thanks for stopping by.

Feel free to leave me a comment or link up your mixed media layout.

Here are a few close ups for the layout.

I am sharing today a card I made. I did this one on a navy cardstock panel. I used gray ink to create the clouds and some of the smoke by the fire. I this stamped and colored with Distress markers the images. I then busted out the Ranger Stickles and add it to the campfire. Lots of little & extra small star sequins. I stamped the sentiment and embossed it. Punched a banner using my Stampin' Up punch. Finally did some iridescent white paint splatters to create the night sky.

Sharing a layout I created of my beautiful daughter Rowynn wearing her dad's reading glasses. Everyone always tells her that she looks like me with out glasses. So, she put them one and said now we really look alike. Lots of stitching on the heart. I did the packaging technique on the background. I  water-colored the heart and stamped the little glasses and the sub-title beautiful you. Lots of layers and enamel dots.

Sharing a card I created using mostly Amy Tan papers and a new stamp & die set I got. I think I can out so cute. Quick and easy because of the die. I inked the edges of the die cuts with Distress ink and I also stamped the blue paint stroke. Then I used Versa-fine black ink for the sentiment. I used Stampin' Up ink the center pineapple.

So the title of this layout is a bit much for most but, when you read the journaling you will understand. I found this quite funny since my daughter Rowynn never curses. This was on her birthday she had a doctors appointment earlier that day and found out how bad her heart is getting. She was greeted by a nurse who sized her up and down and said "well you're interesting" with a disapproving tone. Then the doctor disapproved of her tattoo.

Later that day she was told by a friend that - his family was disapproving of his lifestyle. It was too much I guess and she finally let it out.

Below are close ups of all the little details. I did some stamping and splatters. Lots of layers, washi and enamel dots too,

Thank for looking.
