Weekend Cards

This week's Outlawz Paper A La Mode challenge is Focus on the Sentiment.  The sponsor is Digi Stamp Boutique.  I used a sentiment and image from their super fun Boys Toys set.  This set covers golf, racing, fishing and gaming and is perfect for those masculine cards.

I did my background with smooshing and acetate smooshing in a few distress ink blues.  I did my fish and my sentiments from the same panel.

My second weekend card is one I made when challenged to use a stick on a card.  I also used some cardboard, drywall tape, water colors, modeling paste, and a super fun Tim Holtz Crazy Bird image. 

My sentiment is from DRS Designs.  Fun card to make.

Hope you had a good weekend too!



  1. Both so cool, Nancy. Sorry, been so preoccupied with life.

  2. Two wonderful guy cards. Love the used of the stick, great idea and that dry wall paste came out fantastic. Your colors on your smooching technique work so well together. I'll bet you had fun doing these two. Enjoy your day.

  3. What a great pair of spot-on trendy cards! I love the fishy background and the crazy bird - well he's just too funny! I'm really loving that corrugated panel too!

  4. These are awesome! Love the shabby green paint on the bird card!

  5. Fabulous cards Nancy, I love the fun fish one - such a great sentiment. Your Crazy Bird looks brilliant perched on his branch and your corrugated card background is perfect.

  6. Both of these creations are really adorable Nancy!! Fabulous job! HUGS

  7. WOW, Nancy, love them both. The fish and the background is so awesome, and love the sentiment.
    And even though I just can't get into the birds, love what others are doing with them, and your card
    turned out with such great texture and design.


  8. Both of these just put a big huge smile on my face!!! So cute and creative - and adorable. Lovin' that crazy bird!

  9. Very nicely done cards! You are so creative!

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
