A Old Truck and a Deer

Now that the holidays are over, I am hoping to have more time to stamp and visit blogs.  I do plan to catch up with everyone soon.  This weekend, I had a bit of time to craft in between looking at new cars.  
I played in a few of the SCS challenges.  This one was made using the crackled glass technique.  I used a new Christmas Truck stamp I bought at Mike's a few days before Christmas (it was on a great sale so I had to get it).  The stamp is from Stampendous and is really large, but I focused on the truck and used the DRS  Designs Stained Glass Oval stamp to give it even more of a cracked glass feel.  My bg panels were all stamped with the DRS Designs Woodgrain stamp and sponged.  Everything on this card other than the berries started out as white.  I love me some ink!

The next card is made with a Delicious Doodles deer image - I love this image.  The challenge was an inspiration challenge.  I picked a fun deer picture as my inspiration.  Most the pictures in the challenge had splatters so after washing the image down with some water colors, I splattered the remaining color on the image.  The paper is from My Minds Eye. 

Hope your week goes well!

  3. These are both absolutely amazing! Love that crackle and the deer are fab!

  4. Whoa, Nancy, these are true works of art ready to use as decorations for next year!! I hope your Christmas was wonderful and I wish you all the best in the new year!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Love the fab images and details,fabulous

  6. Two outstanding cards here. I love both of them. The first one has such a great look with the crackle. and I love that you added the ferns and berries. It was as though the car was a gift all wrapped up. Your second image was just gorgeous and the splatters really made it look like they were in the middle of a snow storm. Your leaves, twine and back ground papers all came together perfectly to make such a beautiful card. Happy New Year.

  7. Beautifully done time two. Love the cracked glass! Happy new year to you and blessings for a great year ahead :)

  8. Gorgeous cards Nancy, I love the crackled glass effect and fabulous deer.

  9. Two really amazing designs here Nancy!! Love the images and I especially love the stained glass concept as well!! You are so talented!! :) HUGS

  10. Wow, these cards are amazing! I especially like that cracked/stained glass look on the truck!

  11. The cracked glass card is quite impressive with those rich colors and gorgeous texture. I thought you'd hand-drawn the deer on the 2nd card - it looks like a hand-made watercolor and it's beautiful! I hope you had a great Christmas season!

  12. I really think this is beautiful!
    Thank for your always encouraging me

  13. That card with a truck is so cool, as for me. I love cracked glass, that's why I like this card so much. This truck stamp on a cracked glass looks amazing!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
