Hello (shaker card/galaxy background)

Hi y'all! 
Happy Wednesday, hope your week is going good?! :)

I'm sharing a 'just for fun' card that I was inspired by quite a few craft friends. ;) I've been seeing for a while now so many playing with alcohol inks and seeing the stunning results, that I wanted to try some things. But I don't own any alcohol what was I to do?...I could go buy a few inks and paper but was trying to use things that I already have. After some thinking, I thought I'd use some photo paper (the kind you use in your printer to print photos) and I would try using it with the Nuvo shimmer powders that I have. I didn't know if things would even work for me or what would the end result would be, but I gave it go. Has anyone even done this before?!?...

I think things look pretty good...yeah?!

To get my results, I spritzed some water onto the photo paper and then sprinkled on some shimmer powder here and there and then spritzed things a few more times. I did let things sit for a bit and even dabbed the the paper with a dry paper towel to soak up the remainder of the water on top. That's pretty much it. Now, I don't know how the alcohol inks look when dried on the paper?...but when things were dry, my only wish was it looked more glossy? (if that's even the word I'm looking for?). Things dried good, but maybe I should have sealed it with something?...just to give it more of a glossy/smoother look...this is what somewhat led me to doing a shaker. Probably something I'll play around with more. ;) Though, it's always fun to try new things, right?! :)

That's all for me.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great day and see you soon! :)

Let's party!

Hi y'all! 

Happy Friday, yay!! :) 

I'm swinging in today to share a 'just for fun' card that I made. I've been going through things and trying to use things I still have yet to do anything with. ;) (I'm certain this will be never ending with me. lol) 

So here's my card...

I couldn't tell you how long ago I bought the Pinwheel Party bundle from The Greetery, but it certainly was a while ago. lol Anyhow, I finally put things to use and had sooo much fun doing so! Don't you just love those pinwheels?!! :) 

Well, that's all for me...thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great day and enjoy your weekend!

Sending a happy hello.

Hi y'all!
Happy Thursday, almost Friday! :) 

I made a card for the current Unity Stamp Co. challenge on their Facebook group and thought I'd share it here too. 

Pretty straight forward and simple, right?!...I did some stamping, coloring, and a little bit of die cutting. Easy peasy. ;) 

That's all for me today.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

big birthday wishes

Hi y'all! 
Happy Friday, hope all is well?! :)

I'm swinging in today to share a fun birthday card with you! No challenges or anything, just need some birthday cards for my stash. ;) 

I tried keeping things pretty simple, which I still think it is?...I just decided to add a little bit of layering with die cuts. It was also long overdue for me to use some Mama Elephant goodies I had sitting around...way too long. lol Hope my card makes you smile?! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day and enjoy your weekend!
