"Us" Layout using LaCreme & Webster's Paper Lines

Hi there,

I wanted to share this layout with you that I finished using that lovely La Creme paper by DCWV.  I also used a little of Webster's printed paper. All papers were distressed with Memento and Vintage photo ink. I used the distressing tool by Prima to fray the edges of the layers of the papers. I distressed the photo with old paper and vintage photo ink also. I love the end result.  Working with these various patterns of paper was a sheer delight.

Mixed Media Tag

Hi there,

I had a little time to play in my stamp room. I created this little tag using some Wendy Vecchi stamps, colorbox inks, embossing powders, gesso, ZIG pen, Paper Studio flowers, Tim Holtz book plate and distress ink markers. So much fun!! I absolutely love these stamps by Wendy Vecchi.

Hi there,

I am sharing a few ATCs that I created for my Stampin Divas group. I took the opportunity to play with the picket fence distress marker. I like it. It gives a great whitewash effect around the edges of my ATCs. These can easily be turned into tags or focal pieces for a card. Loved the end result.





Thanks for stopping by..

Hugs, Karen
