Ink Pad Storage

 

So it comes to no surprise that I have too many craft things.   Lately I have been obsessed with ink pads.  I normally have ink pads on my craft room wall using those media sticks.  But there are way too many!!!!  Imagine that.  So I was looking for an additional cabinet to hold them.   Well lucky for me my hairdresser was selling this cute cabinet. She is always buying fun things in craigs list and found this beauty.  It is an upcycled cabinet made from old window frames and cabinet doors.  AWESOME!!!!!!  So I added some cute, cute, cute wire baskets (from Home Goods) to hold the ink sets and put them on the shelves.  I found those cute green milk canisters from Ikea (Socker Vase).

 

Life is Good!!!

Chalkboard Christmas Tree

Ah yes, another online card class.  For those who landed here without knowing about this class, there have awesome classes. And the wonderful thing is you can review the classes over and over again.  Wonderful!!!!

 

For this first day of class we were suppose to make cards that can be duplicated to make for our card mailing!!!!

 

So I wanted to do a little twist on the card that Jennifer made.  So I decided to make a card with a chalkboard look.  I also wanted to try that chalkboard technique from Tim Holtz.  Wow!  Was that easy!!!  Using the Rangers Embossing Antiquities Frosted Crystal on the embossing and then rubbing the chalk over it worked like a dream.  Very Cool Tim Holtz!!!!!  I painted the rhinestones with a copic marker to make red rhinestones.  Just to give it a little pop.  Also the mini bow on top (thanks for the idea Jennifer)/  It took me a while to find red foil paper.  I dragged my brother to Hobby Lobby to get the paper and they also had white erase board paper.  I had to buy it,  not sure what to do with it yet.

So I thought I would try another Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge.  #185 Stained Glass.  So funny.  After I made my card, I saw someone make one before me and posted,  very similar.   I promise I made mine without knowing about the other card!!   Like I always say “Great Minds Think a Like”.     Thought I would use Kraft cardstock so I can add it to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!!!  Here is to a two-fer!!!!!  OK, I have been drinking wine!!!!

So this is the 2nd card for the monthly card kit.  I decided to use some Khaki cardstock to add it to the Wednesday Challenge too!!  Why not.   I rembered that I bought the coffee bean embossing folder and thought it would be great to use with the coffee theme card kit.   SCORE!!!  I knew if I bought it I would make a card….sooner or later.  LOL.  I am so bad, I am always buying and rarely making!  Remember she who dies with the most scrapbook supplies wins!!!   I am a contender and a champ!!!!!

The Challange Ribbon copy

This is a self imposed challenge.  I get the Simon Says Stamp Card Club kit every month.  Sometimes I am so bad that all I do is look at the kit and some of the examples.  And that is it.  So the challenge is to make at least 3 cards from the kits.   PLEASE!!!   At least try girlfriend!!!

It is time for the new challenge in both Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (using Kraft paper) and My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #199.

I made a winter window scene looking at the snowy  hills.  I use three layers of foam tape around the edge of the window because I did use tape behind the first mountain so it did not blend into the whiteness.  I cut the foam myself, but next time  I will cut foam from that fun foam and add a sticky back to it.  That way I can use the die and cut out the inner windows.    AAAAHHHHHH  next time!!!!  LOL  I used glossy accents on the trees and used the rock candy glitter to give it a snowy look.  Then I added some fake snow that can be moved about with a simple shake of the card.   I really like this new Fun Stampers Journey ink pads in Whipped Cream and Butter Cream.  It goes on soooooo smooth.   LOVE it!  However you have to order it from a rep instead of a store.
