City Crafter Challenge #208

Hi Friends! This week it's Ros's turn to pick our challenge at CCCB! And she has chosen the theme:
 
 PAINT IT!! Ros wants you to get artsy! (make a card or project that includes a painted background... can use watercolor, distress ink, spray mist etc)
 
 
 
 

For my card I used Distress inks and acrylic paint on the background for starters. Next I did some embossing with white embossing powder, and then I added more ink on top and some paint splatters. The poppys are inked up using the Rock and Roll technique for depth.When they were dry I used some Wink of Stella on top for  some glitter..I LOVE THAT STUFF!
 

 
These poppys are from MFT...thanks to Heather I had to get some ! :-)

 
Our Guest Designer this week is Natalia, please visit her blog and give some love :-)
 
I know for a fact a lot of my artsy friends have been doing mixed media , so have some fun and join in the fun!!
 
Be sure to stop by City Crafter and see the wonderful creations for the DT !
Thanks for visiting! Hugs, Char

Happy Easter!

Hi Friends! I had every intention to make a Easter Card, but I made the mistake of going to the mailbox and finding this new little stamp set, and I have to say I haven't been this excited about a stamp set in a long time. I went to buy it only a few hours after it was available and it had already sold out! But lucky for me I was cruising Simon Says and they carried it, so I snatched it up! But sad to say it's already sold out there now too :-( It's from a new stamp Company called Altenew...here's the link .The set is called painted flowers. I would love to see them make a smaller rose set too!
 
 
With this stamp set it's so easy to put together a card. I was intimated by all the pieces, but you can't go wrong...they work together nicely!
 
 I used my Stampin' up ink's. They have a nice line of  stamps with different tones that work nicely together. On this card I inked the outline with brown, but the bottom card I used black.


This big sentiment is also from a new Company called Winnie and Walter. I picked up a few sets of the big sentiments they have. They are very nice and ship quickly !! Which is great because I don't know about you, but when I want something I wanted it yesterday lol! I am trying to teach the grand kids to be patient, but I need some 1st lol! I had them last night and we were coloring Easter Eggs and they were wanting to do everthing all at once......normal kids right? I asked them if anyone had ever told them they were impatient and Jasmine says yes, my other Grammy says were like an empty hospital...no patients lol!!
 
Here's my 2nd card with the same set.



Here's a few pics of the baby shower...I haven't edited them yet, I'm still recuperating lol!!
 


 
My DIL made these cupcakes. I think she did a fantastic job on them!
 

These were the Thank You bags I made...45 :-)  The Stork's were cut using my Silhouette..and cutting out 45 pieces and gluing them together was quite a task , I bribed a friend to come over and help lol!!I started out using a PTI bag and when I saw how long it was going to take, I carried my fanny to Michael's and bought the bags , so all I had to  do was put the stork's together and  the trim !!
 

Sorry, bad picture...the place we had the shower was all windows and the shine was bad, but my DIL had a table for everyone to make hair accessories! It was the most popular table !

 
 
 
There was ribbons, and bows, flower, hair bands etc...I'd say Kinley is all set with hair accessories for all ages. These bigger flowers will be great for when she's bigger!

 
The diaper cake :-)


 
 The diapers for the guests to sign :-)
 
 
 This is the outside of the building where the shower took place. It is so pretty here and surrounded my water with a full deck on the back. It was a beautiful shower, a gorgeous day and Destiny had a wonderful time! I'm so glad! She got pretty much everything she needs for the baby and has her hubby putting it all together this weekend lol!
 
 
Well, I think that about does it for me. Long post huh? LOL
 
I hope you have a wonderful Easter!!!!
 
Hugs, Char

Fusion Challenge !

Hi and Happy Saturday!! I'm popping in for a quick post this morning. I have a ton of running around to do for Destiny's Baby Shower tomorrow!! I'm will take lots of pictures!! I'm so nervous! I want everything to be perfect! I made a card last night for Fusion Card Challenge! If you haven't played this challenge , you should, it's so fun!!!
 
 
I used a stamp set from Avery Elle called Laurels Stamp Set. The ink I used is Hero Arts (Love the colors). I really want to invest in some Avery Elle Pigments...Like I don't have enough different sets...I need 1 more lol!!
 
 
 
I know a really simple card for me...It's really hard to do! Just like people who do CAS cards say it 's hard to add things to a card, I find it hard to stop lol! But it's fun to step out of my comfort zone every now and then right?
 
Have a fabulous weekend friends! Hugs, Char

City Crafter Challenge # 204 Take Note

Hi Friends! This week Kirsty is our wonderful hostess and she has chosen the theme:
 
Take Note (make your own note book, note pad, altered one, sticky note pad is good too, or make a project with the word NOTE)
 

Here's my little notebook :-)
A few close ups. As you remember I took that Marion Smith class a few weekends ago and it was a blast! Her and her husband were so nice!! I haven't finished my mini cover yet, but will share when I do. Meanwhile, they was alot of her fabulous paper there, so I picked some up to make my notebook with! I love the smooth texture of her paper, it's unlike any paper I have felt before , it's smooth and thick, great for all projects!
 


 
 Cover

 
 The back
 


 
The little ART JOURNAL stamp is from a clearance rack at a little scrapbook store at the coast...I think it was $1.50, and it came in handy for this challenge :-). I love a great deal!
