INAS Challenge # 125 Get Inky (Stamping and/or Background)

 Hello Friends,

Today we have a new challenge at International Art & Soul #125 "Get Inky (Stamping and/or Background)

Here is my card:

A lot of guys are retiring from my the company where my husband works, so I want him to have some cards to share when he finds out someone is taking early retirement.

Can you see that I "roughed up" the papers and then inked them? I have a hard time doing this to paper, I have the tool, I just have a brain problem when it comes to tearing paper! I need to practice more. I used my stitched circle die to make the sentiment,  I also inked the sentiment with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze and dylusions ink. I also inked the wooden arrow.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

INAS # 122 Winter

 Hello My Friends,

I'm back!  I was having some "female trouble" which involved surgery, everything is fine and I am so thankful to be crafting again.

We have a new challenge at International Art & Soul #122 "Winter" Here is my card:

I have so many happy memories of sledding with my brothers and sisters. We used to stay out in the snow for such a long time, I'm surprised we didn't get frostbite. I have some really old paper from Prima called "Sweet Peppermint" that i just love.  The image of the children sledding came from that collection.

I used two different embossing folders on this card, snowflakes on the top and dots on the bottom. I used some snowflake embellishments and some ribbon.

Here is a close up of the image of the children sledding:

INAS #119 Mostly Yellow and Orange

 Good Morning,

We have a new challenge over at International Art & Soul #119 "Mostly Yellow and Orange".

I had a very big project planned but I ran out of the right colored paper! Don't you hate when that happens?  When the Pandemic struck, I decided that I wouldn't spend any money on crafting. I actually made it almost two years just using up the stuff in my craft room but I got too low on solid colored paper so I had to go to American Cardstock to order more.

Here is the card I decided to make.  It is from Dreaming Tree and it is called Fall Card.

As you can see, it has many layers, four not including the card base. The last two layers were glued together and then glue dotted on to have it stand out a little.  All Dreaming Tree cards come with an envelope file (which I love).  I used orange and yellow gems all around to give it some bling!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Allsorts - #645 Embellish It!

Darling Cardmakers - Awesome Autumn

Country View - Oct. 2021 Autumnal Colors and/or Halloween

Crafts Galore Encore - #92 - ATG
