I couldn't sleep last night

When I cannot sleep I play. I decided to play messy this time. I took a piece of white cardstock and embossed the trees with Wow bright white embossing powder. Next, I added many layers of distress and distress oxide inks in multiple layers to my paper until I was satisfied with the result. Then I took out my Gansai Tambi watercolors and and added splatters first with water, then with black, white, gold, silver and white shimmery paints. Before this step make sure you wipe of the excess ink from the embossing. I set this aside to dry and stamped the deer and bunny and die cut them. Once the ink and paints were dry I added the sentiment which I stamped using my MISTI and Versafine onyx black ink. Next, I added the deer and bunny, who were just floating on the background so I cut a piece of cardstock to make a patch of snow for the deer to stand on and left the bunny sitting on the sentiment.  I thought I was done when I saw sitting on my desk this already stamped and die cut foliage and decided to give my deer a cute pair of foliage antlers. lol  All stamps are from the Winter Woodland stamp set by Catherine Pooler Designs.


I hope you are having a great Day!!

I wanted to make a special card for Michelle, so I made my first trifold card.  The card is mostly just one layer with the Ballerinas glues to each panel. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks and with layering and masking created the floor.  For the stage lighting I used masking paper and sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress inks I them sprayed water on top and picked it up with a paper towel to get a distressed look. For the stamping I used Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, All the Jazz, Icing on the Cake and Sweet Sixteen inks from Catherine Pooler Designs . The stamps are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps…

July 2018 -CAS Reminder

Welcome to the Calling All Sistahs monthly reminder blog post.

We hold this blog hop on the 17th of each month as a reminder to do your monthly self-breast examination and to book your yearly mammogram if it is coming due.

When it comes to surviving breast cancer, early detection remains the most crucial step, and mammograms are the tools for this step. ~ NBCF.ORG

This months reminder card features three products from the Cas-ual Fridays Shop. I used the Calling All Sistahs and Word Ribbon stamp sets and the To Go Cup Fri-dies.



Michelle donates 50% of profits from the sale of the products in the Calling All Sistahs - Breast Cancer Awareness Collection to fund breast cancer research and awareness.
