follow your bliss

Alright so you may have noticed but my cards lately are all using this same distress technique. I did a bunch of them at once and they are all kind of a series. I hope you like it and dont worry, I will have some new stuff up soon!

Speaking of new... my Scrapbooker's Paradise trip yesterday went wonderful! I got a ton of new beautiful paper, some Tim Holtz metal tags, a new ink pad, fragment charms, Spain stickers, travel rub ons and I finally took the leap and dove into the world of Glimmer Mist. Of course I have used them before but now I have my very own! To start my collection I bought the caramel apple and the tattered leather. I cant wait to create a project!

Distress Technique

Hello wonderful blogging world! Today is a good day! I have no homework (this is a very rare occurrence!) and tonight I am heading into town to visit Scrapbooker's Paradise! What a wonderful store that is. I am hoping to find some great things to scrapbook my Spain trip with. Speaking of which, I have already made a Spain mini book as part of my school module that I get credits for! I will be sharing that soon too. Today I would like to share 2 cards that I recently made at a crop. I only used scraps! They are a tiny bit smaller than a standard size card. I used my new Christina Renee stamp set for the vintage lady, ticket and backgrounds.
I used tha same technique that was on my 2S4Y card this week. I just love the vintage worn look. and the tickets are so versatile!
The main stamp on this card is from SU. I love it because it looks like the streets of Spain and it is such a detailed, clear image.

collage tag

I made this using some old cosmo cricket paper and newer maya road journaling cards. I took pieces of each and decopaged them to the tag base. I distressed it using tea dye ink and some black. To finish it off I added the rub-on and the clip with some ric-rac.

grungy chandelier

I made this card for this week's 2S4Y challenge. I have been making alot of these grungy brown stamped images and have made several into cards already. I got this new Christina Renee stamp set and just LOVE all the vintage images. I cannot wait to use them for scrapping my Spain adventures.
I glimmer misted the lace with tattered angels (I forget what colour) and stamped some music notes (same set) along the edge. I freehand drew the top note bracket and cut it out of mulberry paper.

vintage text tag

I made this tag using a regular shipping tag. I first covered it with dictionary text paper then distressed it using white acrylic paint and some inks. I distressed the edges using the Tim Holtz edge distresser. I used 2 Tim Holtz gears but painted the smaller one with white acrylic paint.

I added some twill ribbon, lace and feathers to finish it off.
