RemARKably Creative Blog Tour - April: Underground Suite

Welcome to our Blog Tour! The theme is the Underground Suite. To me that means GUY CARDS!

For my card I used the Stamp Set, "Urban District". Unfortunately, it was announced this week that it was retiring! I really fell in love with the Where is Waldo-like pictures on the letters. For the background, I used the Brick Wall embossing folder. I used a Tarnished Foil technique that really gives the bricks some texture!

For the tarnished foil method, I embossed silver foil through the Big Shot with the Brick Wall folder. Run a little test sample through to make sure you have the brick side "out". Ask me how I know.

Then I smooshed some Black Stazon ink (also retiring!) on it and let it dry. I added spots of Versamark and then copper embossing powder and heated. I repeated the last step with black and gold embossing powder.

I colored some of the items in with my Stampin' Write markers. I think Dad will enjoy it!

RemARKably Creative Blog Tour for March - Party!

Hi! Welcome to this month's blog tour - this month's theme is Party Animals!

I used the color palette: Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango for my card. 

On the top part of the card, I used Stampin' Write markers and colored directly on the rubber stamp. I then spritzed it and put it on watercolor paper. I also splattered a little of the Tangerine Tango. 

 On the bottom part, I put the ink directly on the block, then spritzed it and pressed it on the paper
. So now, I showed it to my husband and of course he thinks it looks better upside down. What do you think?

I hate it when he's right.
