Spurs & Bling with The Project Bin

Howdy partners...

Ok, so I have absolutely fallen in love with the Cowgirl Up stamp set from The Project Bin.

With a sentiment like this, how could I resist putting it on a Cowboy Boot card?!?

Card was cut with Silhouette Cameo then ink blended with Distress inks.

Now for the tricky part....
Using a Misti stamping tool, I stamped the boot with the sentiment, then laid the spurs where I wanted them over the boot and stamped the sentiment again.

Trying to do this technique freehand has always been impossible for me, but with my handy dandy prob, Bob!

Added a little bling to the boot strap...just because!

a Celtic Cross


Playing along in a couple of challenges with this home decor that I made.

I must give credit to my son for cutting the Celtic cross from wood. He makes all sorts of personalized items like outlines of states from pallet boards, corn hole games...ok you get the idea.

So I painted and sanded the cross, then started adding flowers and leaves.

A little twine and pretty sheer ribbon were also added.

The cross is about 12 inches tall (hard to tell the size in a picture) and it will sit on my new floating shelves as soon as hubby gets them done.

May Challenge with Joy Clair


Happy May!

New month means a new challenge at Joy Clair.

This month there is a photo inspiration to get your mojo going:

Make sure to enter the challenge this month whether you use Joy Clair stamps or not!

For my sample card I chose to use the greens and the pink.

I watercolored the flowers from the Hugs & Smiles stamp set after heat embossing them,  then trimmed them out.
A little striped paper and a wide strip of Olive Green card stock with a heat embossed edge.

Stamped the sentiment from the same set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink, then added a few sequins.

I absolutely love the Liquid Platinum embossing powder!!!!
Look at that shine!
