I Love Tacos...!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 1 stamps of approval
Here's a little card I made, just playing around with some things on my desk.

I picked up this stamp set from Hero Arts at the art supply store and thought it was fun.  I wanted to play with my Gina K wreath builder template and decided that I could do a taco wreath!  I mean, why not, right??

So here it is - tacos, dancing around in a circle with hearts and sequins.  A pretty simple layout, but bright, happy colors to make you smile!

Have a crafty day!

Alcohol Inks - Loyal Friend

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, May 17, 2019 0 stamps of approval

I've recently discovered alcohol inks and have been having a great time playing with them and perfecting my technique!

Here is a card that I made using Tim Holtz inks and Metallic Mixatives.  I really love the way the inks swirl together to make a one of a kind background.

I made a simple frame with stitched square dies to highlight my beautiful greyhound from the "Diamond in the Ruff" stamp set from Hero Arts.  I used the coordinating die set to cut her out.  She is mounted on another die cut piece of black craft foam to give her a good solid support on the frame.

The sentiment is part of the same stamp set set and I embossed it in silver metallic powder to match the silver metallic mixatives in the background.

I left the embellishments simple, because the background is really my highlight on this card.

I'm so happy with how this card turned out and I will probably display it in my craft room as inspiration for a while before I'm able to part with it!  Haha!

I hope you like it, too!  Thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to seeing you again!

Missing You...

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Monday, April 29, 2019 0 stamps of approval
HI!  Here's a card to share that I made a while ago for my Bestie!  I moved across the country a year ago and I miss her!

I found this cute stamp set at a local stamp expo and knew I had to get it!  I love Sherlock!  The stamp is from Katzelkraft Stamps and I colored it with markers.  I added the Stampin' Up Large Letters die and a small "you" sentiment that I had on hand.

I had fun putting this one together and thinking of all the fun crafty time my Bestie and I used to spend together!  Can't wait to see her again this summer!
<3 p="">Have an amazing crafty day!

Time to start sharing again!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, March 14, 2019 9 stamps of approval
HI there, friends!!  Today, I went up to my craft room to put some stuff that I bought away, and decided to play a little bit while I was there!  Right now I'm mostly in organization mode, since we moved about a year ago and I'm still putting my "studio" together.  Most of my supplies are in storage, so I'm limited with what I have to play with.

I just got this new Stampin' Up! set and dies from Sale-A-Bration, So Hoppy Together (I love frogs!) . I used Distress Inks for a blended background with the paddle style make-up brushes.  I really like how they blend together.  I also just got the Lawn Fawn Reversed Scallop Stitched Circle die and love it!  I used the Spellbinders Expressions die and stamp set for the sentiments. For the word "friend" I die cut it out of toner paper and ran it through my Minc with green foil. 

I love how this card turned out!

Thanks for "hopping" by!  I'm hoping to start sharing more of my cards and things as I get my "studio" back together and in working order!
