A Little Friday Project!!

Hey Everyone, are you all just excited like me that it's FRIDAY again? 
Of course Friday calls for some crafting time! I have been wanting to get some crafting in this whole week, but was not able too, just too tired after work to get out all my scrap goodies. 

While I was browsing my emails I came across a blog post at Neat and Tangled. I really liked the idea Taheerah came up with and I decided to try almost the same thing tonight. I had to do the front of the card a few times since I messed up with the water coloring and it just wasn't turning out just right, the first time my paper ripped too! I did add my colors to the paper first, then die-cut the hearts and then added some drops of water for a little more effect. As a final addition to the card I added some peach colored sequins. 

Here is how my card turned out: 

I hope you enjoyed my little Friday Project! Have a great weekend!!

RIC #76: Carven

I am back this weekend with a new Runway Inspired Challenge. I kind of had problems deciding what exactly I wanted to do with my card. I looked at the image many times. I knew I wanted to do something with yellow and black, those were the colors that popped out at me the most. I went to my paper stash for more inspiration and found a paper pad a 6x6 pad named "Glitz". The first page I opened was the yellow and I knew that had to be my background....I guess you can kind of say the rest was history, after that one thing lead to another and the card came together! 

Here is the image we had to create a card from: 

Here is what I came up with:
(the streaks look greenish in the image, but they are yellow in real life)

Week 129: NBUS

I decided to take part in this week's CAS-ology card challenge. It seemed like a fun thing to do and since my goal this year is to get better at cardmaking, I thought why not? This week's challenge was titled NBUS. NBUS stands for "Never Been Used Schtuff"  That is, things in our stashes that we've never, ever used!

Here is what I cam up with for the challenge: 

I ended up using items from Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit, since I hadn't had time to play around with the kit yet, this was a perfect opportunity to put it to good use. 

While I am at it, I will also be adding this to the NBUS challenge #3 as well. 

RIC #75: Ralph Lauren

After being away for a little while and on vacation in Miami, it's time to jump back on the card-making bandwagon! For this week's Runway Inspired challenge here is what we had to get inspiration from:

Here's hoping you all have a wonderful weekend!
