No, seriously, though, folks! It's a little ridiculous just HOW difficult it seems to be to think of a decent, eye catching, make 'em click on the post kind of title. How do you Almighty Masters of the Art do it? Where do they come from? TELL ME!!!! I WANNA KNOW!!!! Please help this sorry title blogger!!!!
I do have some fun stuff to share with you today.
This first card is done using a classic, but ever forgotten stamping technique called Soot Stamping. When you really think about it, any technique that involves fire and your husband complaining (in good humor, of course) about the ashes you left all over the bathroom sink and the general bathroom area ('cause they do float around a bit) is TOTALLY worth doing now and then! HA!
I really love the stamp I used on this card. I think it is from Inkadinkado if I remember correctly. It is perfect for techniques like this!!!
Here is another card that I made using the BRAND NEW Maya Road stamps!!! Aren't they STINKING adorable!!! Maya Road was kind enough to send me these in a prize package that I won on their blog and I couldn't be happier! If you haven't used their stamps before, you should really check them out. I'm kind of picky about my acrylic stamps, being a CTMH consultant and all, I expect the VERY BEST in quality. These are nice, sturdy stamps and the stamp a clean, clear, crisp image! I am quite impressed with the quality that I see from Maya Road acrylics. Definitely worth checking them out! Plus...HELLO they have the CUTEST designs!!!!!
The papers are from Cosmo Cricket (the new and wonderful Chemistry line) and the embellies are Chatterbox. Love these! The ribbon is a fun one from Close To My Heart. I really liked how the products from so many companies all came together so well!
This is a layout I did with a photo of Sean that I just really liked. I used Rosa Moka papers. If you have had the chance to play with these you already know that they use some incredible detailed designs on their papers. I hate to cover those up, so I used my craft knife to cut them and then "inserted" the photo and mat into the cut designs. I then cut the butterflies from the part of the mat paper that was unused and I was thrilled! They are popped up for dimension. Overall, I really like that this page is made with PAPER! Glorious paper!!! No fancy schmancy embellishment needed!
Finally, a quick and easy page about me! This one was fun. It is very simple, but I am very happy with it, actually. I think it showcases the photos pretty well in its simplicity. What do you think?
What do you think of these projects?
Is this too many for one post? I worry that I overload you when I do posts with lots of artwork. Do you prefer to see just one or two pieces or do you like to see a few at a time?
Maybe this weekend I will try to put together a "What do you want to see on my blog" kind of survey. I'm curious. I like you guys...I'd like you to stick around, so you better tell me what you like! LOL!
Are you doing anything fun this weekend? I'm spending some time with my Mommy tomorrow. I have no idea what we are going to do yet, but we will think of something fun! Have a Happy Friday!!!
