Just Because

I usually enter challenges to help me keep up with the cards I need to make, but not this time. My brother-in-law's birthday is coming up, and I got a new toy. So...here they are:

The paper, ribbon and stamp are all from CTMH, although all are discontinued now. I dabbed the center of the camera with liquid glass and used tweezers to dribble just a few speck of glitter in it.

I daubed a bit of New England Ivy and Outdoor Denim on the embossed image to highlight the words.

The sewing concerned me, but I think it ended up not looking to girly for a grown man's card.

This second card was to play with the new spritzers from CTMH. I used watercolor paper, sprayed it with Buttercup and Olive reinkers, let the paper dry, and then embossed my images in white. Again, the stamps are discontinued CTMH ones (are you seeing a pattern here?)

I had to bump up the color a little after the spritzing, but you can still see some of the specks. I just sprayed the paper indiscriminately, then planned my flowers and leaves where there was mostly yellow or mostly green. I'm going to have fun with this!!

Well...that's all from here.

Until next time,


  1. Oh, man, those are some old CTMH papers! :)

  2. Yeah...and these aren't even the oldest ones I have. Scary, huh?


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
