Thank you Card with lots of stamping and embossing!


How are you this Wednesday? The sun is shiny warm here today, how is it for you?

Today I literally decided to dust off my supplies and create something. I made a thank you note card(that I am only a teeny bit late in sending)!

Hope you like it!

This post contains links to my stamp shop, Blank Page Muse.
Supplies used:
Archival Ink
Distress Ink
Brutus Monroe EP in Alabaster & Gilded Gold
Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil
Dyan Reaveley Circles stencil
Ranger and Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink

These close ups show the shiny EP.

The Baked Textures really work great through a stencil. They layer so nice!

This card was a little mixed media challenge. I had an idea on what I wanted to make crafting skills are rusty so I forgot little steps. So small things happened along the way that I needed to fix. Like I forgot to use the embossing pillow to remove the static so I had some EP in between the big I added another stencil layer over it. And so on and so forth...

But it was a fun adventure and I enjoyed it. That's what counts, right?

Thanks so much!
Have a happy day!

I am also entering this in some fun play along challenges:

Smeared Ink Reunion Blog Hop~July 2017


So sorry I have been away again! Wow as always the time is just flying, scary!

I had to dust off this blog and come back because Smeared Ink is having a Reunion today via an awesome blog hop! I have lots n lots of happy memories due in large part to the sister ladies of Smeared Ink. 31 Days of Halloween led me onto the path of creating and creating and playing and finding a "me" something, and another pathway to a new business so big hugs and thanks to you Tori and Terra :)

Here is the fabulous blog hop list! Hop along and be inspired!

I made a postcard using the wicked Jester Jack rubber stamp by Smeared Ink. I'm very happy to have a few of their rubber stamps :) It is a mixed media collage with acrylic paints and coloring pencils, three SI rubber stamps and oh yeah, some ink smeared along the edges!

Have a great day and thanks so much for hopping over!
