Retro Toaster!

Good morning! 
I was going through old pictures and came across this one.  It was a card I had made when I was on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen Design Team. 
I thought is was such a cute idea to write your sentiment on the bread part that pops up!
(Little things in life thrill me! LOL!)

The cut is by Silhouette.  I added a bit of glitter, a sparkly button, rhinestone  (Because who doesn't like a blinged up toaster?), and a bit of ribbon.

Have a great day friends!

70th Birthday!

Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Yesterday we celebrated my dad's 70th birthday!

I created as manly of a card as I possibly could! Masculine is not my strong suit! ;) I feel lost without ribbon and glitter! LOL!
I used a Lawn Fawn number die with water color paper and while the die was in place sponged Tim Holtz inks on top of it.  I splashed water on it to get the cool pooling effect.

 The numbers 7 and 0 were given a coating of black enamel as well as the birthday sentiment from Spellbinders.  I added a piece of acetate behind the panel, some foam tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, and a generous helping of sequins to create the shaker element.

Shabby Hello

Good morning! I have a shabby vintage card to share with you using a digital image from Crafty Secrets.  It is part of the Flower Garden     collection.  I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Markers.  The image is not on water color paper, but because the area I was coloring was so small, it worked just fine. After coloring the image I inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in frayed burlap.  
Created by Michele Kovack
I added a gold sentiment sticker. The soft blue patterned paper is also from Crafty Secrets and is part of the Birds and Blooms digital collection.  
And isn't the silk ribbon yummy?  The ribbon can be found at the Stamp Simply store.  I decided to let the ribbon drape and added a  glittery heart to the center.

JustRite Festive Grand Christmas Sentiments!

Good morning fellow crafters!  It is a beautiful, sunny Sunday here and I am happy to start my day with you! I have another brand new set from JustRite called, Festive Grand Christmas SentimentsI decided to make a Christmas favor box using my Silhouette. The images in the set worked perfectly as an accent to my box.

I stamped the deer and other images in black Memento ink. I inked the edges in a bit of soft pink and light blue.  I applied a thick coating of glossy accents and sprinkled with with a fine clear glitter from Martha Stewart. I tied pretty silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply store and and added jingle bells to finish it off.

Hello there! I have a card today that was up on the SRM blog a couple of days ago.
It uses a new stamp set called Big Hello!
Card created by Michele Kovack
I stamped the sentiment and the faux stitching and embossed it in gold.  I did a water color wash using shades of blue, gray, and gold.  I popped up the panel using foam tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and adhered gold glittery leaves underneath it.
