Where does the time go?

Its been a while! I didn’t realize how long it had been since I had posted on the blog. Life has been busy and I haven’t had a lot of time to make any cards. I did make a few yesterday and I’ve also started working on some wooden decor for Halloween!

Here’s one of the cards I made yesterday:

I used the stamp set “Space Explorer” from MFT. I stamped the images and colored them with copic markers.

For the background I used distress oxide inks and then I splattered it with water, then white paint and perfect pearls. I then adhered the images on to the background. I matted it with black cardstock and glued it to a white card base.

I then stamped the sentiment on some white paper and then added some distress ink to it to help it blend in more.

Here’s a few pictures of some of the wooden items I’ve been working on. They are available in my Etsy shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/jasmineblossomcrafts

I hope this finds you well. See you next time!

Beautiful day

Its a beautiful spring day today.  The sun is shining, that always helps me feel better. It just lifts my spirits.  We are going to have a rainy week so I am enjoying the sunshine while it lasts.

I often have a hard time making cards for boys/men.  I recently got a stamp set from MFT called Space Explorer and that has made it much easier. 

Here’s the first card I made with this stamp set:

MFT is one of my favorite stamp companies. They make such cute stamps.  I used some “galaxy” paper from Scrapping For Less for the background.  I stamped the images and colored them with alcohol markers.  Then fussy cut them out.  I used a circle die to cut a half circle for the moon. I stamped the sentiment and then adhered all the images to the card.  This time I used a grey card base.  I’m looking forward to using the other images in the stamp set for more cards.
