Birthday Wishes Tag

I am so sorry, that it has been 2 months since the last post. In the summer, it seems like the blog gets put on the back burner while I spend my time on other social platforms.  

Today, I am sharing a cute tag that I created last night for the Where Creativity Meets C9 #11 challenge, embossing. I opted to do heat embossing. I am in a tag making phase since I have so many cards made. Tags are something I am in need of since I stick them in my Etsy orders

I broke out my glitter embossing powder and heat embossed the cute citrus stamp from Concord and 9th. I then watercolored the tag with gelatos. 

Supplies: watercolor paper (Faber-Castell), watercolor crayons (Design Memory Craft), stamps (Concord and 9th and Simon Says Stamps), embossing powder (Stampin' Stuff), ink (Versa Mark and Stazon), and twine (Bella Creationz)

   I can't believe I have let this blog sit untouched for over a month. I don't think that has happened in years. I don't know why but the joy of blogging has died, or I just have the guilty feeling that I should be working on my Etsy shop instead. I find Instagram so much easier for me to update on new projects, so if you want to stay up-to-date on my creativity happenings be sure to follow me on IG, link to my IG account can be found in the right sidebar. 

   I ended up creating this birthday card for the CAS_ual Fridays challenge, use pink, navy, and white.  
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Crate Paper and Basic Grey), brad (My Mind's Eye), alcohol markers (Spectrum noir), stamps (Cas_ual Fridays and Sizzix) and ink (Momento)

   The cupcake stamp is one that I have been wanting to use since I got it for my birthday. 

   Inside I used a CAS_ual Friday stamp for the sentiment. 

   Here is the completed card with the matching envelope seal. This will be given to my mom for her birthday.

BB2U - Featuring a Galaxy Background

   Last night, I was in the mood to try a new technique that I have been seeing some online friends doing. Since I knew for my style I need to do it in a small amount which was great so I didn't feel like I wasted my time if I ruined it since I wasn't using the right items. This card I am about to share uses the "Galaxy" background technique and the "CAS(E) this sketch #212

   Here is my take on this sketch. 
 Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio and My Mind's Eye), watercolor crayons (Design Memory Craft), punches (EK Success and We R Memory Keepers), stamp (CASual Fridays), stamp ink (Tsukineko), mist (Tattered Angels), brad (My Mind's Eye) and salt.

   I love the frame punch board from We R Memory Keepers. I seem to be using it on a lot of my projects. 

   To create this pattern paper with the watercolor crayon and black mist. While it was still wet I added salt to the top and let it dried. Once it dried I brushed off the salt. It doesn't look like the galaxy which is because of error on my part but I do love the look of this.
