Just My Type Birthday Card

I love this stamp from MFT, so versital with so many sayings. I found this paper at an estate sale, it was a HUGE binder full, I think that it was probably a set that you can find on one of the shopping networks from years ago. Can't beat the thrift stores and Garage Sales!!

I made this Get Well Card for a good friend who is going into the hospital tomorrow. I used the Authentique Splended collection, wow, what great papers! They are all one sided so I don't feel like I am wasting one side of the paper when making my selecttion. The digital stamp is from "Some Odd Girl" Love these stamps too!

Halloween Casket Mini, Through the Years

I really enjoyed working on this album to showcase pictures of all of our Halloween Parties through out the years. I purchased the casket at a Flee Market a few weeks ago and knew that I wanted to make something right away.

This casket was already stained a dark brown, I wanted to lighten it up a little and provide some glimmer.

I painted Mission Bells Brown all over the casket, since it is a stain, it went on evenly and the wood soaked it up.

Using my finger I buffed on Gold Rub and Buff

The last step in staining the casket was to brush Espresso Glimmer Glam all over the casket

I used Hogs Wart Orange from Lindy's Stamp Gang to brush some stain onto the crow that I purchased at Michaels.

These are the colors that I used to stain the flowers from I am Roses and SA Crafter.
