NEW Ranger Product and GIVEAWAY!!!

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! I've got something special for you today.

TODAY, Ranger has come out the Distress Mini sets #10, #11 and #12! That rounds out the collection to 48! T!M asked a few of us to make a project using the new inks.

I started my card out with Brushed Pewter Distress paint and the Reverse Damask stamp on watercolor paper. The paint acts as a resist and gave me a cool effect.

I stamped the butterflies onto the panel and stamped an additional set to color, cut out and staple back on to my card.

I shot a video of my process. Hope you enjoy!

Now for the awesome GIVEAWAY part!!!

I have ONE set of of the new Distress Mini's!! Leave a comment on this post by Monday at 11:59 pm CST and I'll randomly choose a winner. Good Luck!!! Oh and please leave your email in your comment so I can contact you.  (ex. shari-designs at mchsi dot com)

Super Excited… SSS Sept Card kit!!!

This is a really good one folks. Soft vintage printed papers, a shelf building stamp set, so fun to make your own configuration! Let me introduce you to Story Book!

I've created THREE cards to inspire you…I had so many ideas... hope you like!

My first card uses a few of the stickers from the kit and some stamping. I love the golden color of the printed paper.

This next one uses the stamps to build the shelves… LOVE that there are other item sin the stamp set to add with the books like a clock, plant apple and frames.

My last card features the stamps in a more simplistic arrangement with an imperfect leaning book. 

I've shot a video of the process, plus I show a new item which I'll be using more in the future called Misti. It's the most amazing stamp positioned EVER! I'll have more information on where to get it soon!

Sooo… I went a little crazy using inks, found so many that go well together and with the colors of the papers. Sorry I didn't separate my supplies by each card but if you have any questions, Don't hesitate to ask!

I created A masculine teacher card, I know those can be difficult. I used the Scrambled Letters stencil with embossing paste to get me started, then started adding layers from there. You can see the video HERE.

I created a little mini chalkboard from slate ink and card stock.  I quickly outlines the letters with a white pen. Super easy!

Have a fantastic week-end...Enjoy!
