Try It Out Tuesday


Hello and Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends! Today for my Try It Out Tuesday Series, I am creating a card with the new to me Die from Technique Tuesday called Bubbles on the Border:) I thought it would be fun to create a card using just one border die:)  I think this card is very versatile, by replacing the colors of cardstock and sentiment you can create a masculine card, baby shower card, girly girl card and so on:)  Today I used some bright colors and created a fun birthday card!  You can watch how I made this card on my YouTube Channel, Just Click Here.  Supplies are below if you are interested also:) Time to  grab your coffee friends and let’s get to crafting! Have a Beautiful and Crafty day! Hugs, Tina

Hello & Happy Sunday Crafty Friends! Today for another Scrapping for Less Project I made a card with the Delightful “Parisian Holiday” Stamp Set by SugarPea Designs and La-La Land Crafts Vintage Bike.  I thought the two complimented each other beautifully.  I distressed the rounded rectangle frame with Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.  Also added a bit of color behind my scene with more Distress Oxide in the colors of Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.  I colored the images with copic markers and die cut the adorable vintage bike with silver foil cardstock.  For finishing touches I added a few silver stars.  Check out the Scrapping for Less Shop for the items used today for my Design Team Project!  Grab your coffee friends and lets get to crafting:)  Have a Beautiful Day!  Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs, Tina
