Distress Oxide Cat Friendship Handmade Card

Distress Oxide Cat Friendship Handmade Card

Hello and TGIF!

Well, it has been a heck of a busy week and it’s looking like my weekend will be about the same. I thought I’d get a little ahead of the game and give you a special Friday handmade card share to tide you over for the weekend. This card went to my lovely friend Sylvia in Sweden that I do ATC (Artist Trading Card) swaps with several times a year. We always have so much fun and we both love cats which is why this card was purrrfect ;).

Without further ado here is the adorable kitty card using distress oxides for the background:

Some Stills:

Now I am a newbie at card making, so please be kind ;).  I really did enjoy making this one, and actually, since making it I have discovered the Tim Holtz Micro Glaze which if I used the alcohol ink glossy cardstock would really pop the background. See the wheels are always churning folks.

I hope this card gave you some inspiration and brightened up your Friday a bit. I  know playing with my Distress Oxides always cheers me up.

Have a safe and fabulous weekend!

Handmade Steampunk “Inspire” Card

Handmade Steampunk “Inspire” Card

Over the weekend I dove into the world of cardmaking. I pulled out some stamps I hadn’t used in quite awhile and had a play at making a steampunk “inspire” card to send out with some happy mail. I got to use my Distress Oxides, Tim Holtz Mica Sprays, and my new Tonic Stamping platform. I had so much fun I think I may end up being on a card kick for a while now. Some may even show up in my Etsy shop for custom orders!

You can see my process video over on my youtube channel: Handmade Steampunk Card

Here are some still shots for you below:

What a great way to use stamps that have been collecting dust. Just a little bit of sparkle and some chit chat quotes and you have your own custom card.

Happy Crafting!
