Here I Am!

I have decided to move my blog over to blogspot so I can make it cuter! I started out on wordpress because that was what people I knew were using, but I couldn't get the layout to do what I wanted it to. I'm positive it was just due to user error, LOL. I am quite technically challenged, although I do try. I find that I can do most anything once someone SHOWS me how to do it, but I'm not very good at figuring out website design and such on my own.

So this blog will be anything scrapbook or papercraft related, just as my other one was. I hope to be a much more consistent blogger now. I enjoy sharing tips and techniques, as well as hearing what other people are doing in their crafting. So be sure to leave me your comments!

Here is a card that we did at the last team meeting I attended. It uses the August stamp of the month from Close to My Heart which you can get at a discount or even FREE. This one was made by Tina Sutton, my upline, but we all made ones just like it!
This is a bleach tecnique. The piece with the flower started out as colonial white cardstock. We then brayered it with sunflower (yellow) ink over the entire piece. We stamped the flower and sentiment with versamark ink and then embossed it with CTMH chocolate embossing powder. Here's the fun part-take a paint brush, dip it in bleach, and paint it on the petals. The ink color will disappear, but the background color will not because our cardstock is printed, not dyed. Cool, huh?

  1. Love this card. The colors are even perfect for a masculine card. Thank you so much for sharing.
