Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 April

I was finally able to finish my Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 April tag before the end of the month. On this tag Tim was demonstrating the "look of patina" on a variety of surfaces using the distress paints.

Here is my version of the tag
Once again I did not have all the items that he used so I improvised and used what I had on hand :)

Sharing in your sorrow

I was sad when I heard the news. No it was not someone close to me but close to someone that I know. I am giving this card to a male person so I did not want it all "pretty"

If you look close you can see that I  had embossed a square in the center. I then centered the popped  stamped image inside the embossed square. Finishing it off with a spray of shimmer mist over the entire card.


Take care everyone
Have a safe weekend!
ps I noticed the corners were not sticking down well. They are now fixed :)

Stampin Up Club for the month of April

look at these cards that we were showed how to make at our stampin up club this past Friday night.  I love them!

card #1  Double embossing
We did a double emboss on this card. I will definitely be using this technique again. I really love the look of it.
This card was CASEd from  Flowerbug's Inkspot
card #2 Secret Garden Oval
We heat embossed on the flowers, coloured them using an ink pad and a waterbrush! and then we used the matching dies to cut them out. Love how it turned out!
Inspired from  LW Designs

card #3 the last one         Best of Flowers Oval
Charlene was clever to use the ovals that we cut from card #2 as a base for our focal point. The flowers were coloured using stampin ups colour markers. Very easy to use and again turned out great!
This card was inspired by Inking Out Of The Box
Thanks again Charlene!

PS      I won the card challenge this month :)

Happy 80th Birthday Mom!

It was my mothers 80th birthday on March 29th

Here is the card and envelope that I had made for her. I will be giving it to her when we all get together this Saturday to celebrate her birthday.
One of the things that had been planned was for my mother to receive 80 birthday greetings. She actually received more than the 80 cards through mail or hand delivered. She was very thrilled to be receiving these cards over a 2 week period. She has no idea that there is a celebration coming up.

The plan is to display all the cards at the celebration. I am looking forward to see all those cards at one time!

Have a great week
