Do you like a good spooky story?
I do somethimes, I used to be totally not even touched by Halloween, growing up in a baptist family, it was sort of "no-no"...Harry Potter and Anne Rice DON'T even mention to my parents!!!)))
But, ever since I've got my own two children, well... things change)))
Anyway... I just couldn't resist making this card:
I love all that mist on the ground, and glowing behind the gate, and moon I think turned out quite SpOOky!
 Here sun hits it just a little:

A close up:

And this is a little computer enhancement) :
This ALL was done by Distress ink pads, and cosmethic sponges, and different stamps from different companies and brands.

Carribean dreams

This is the final week of our beach scenes challenge. Please remember it is a scene with a bit of sand and water. You may use stamps or digis just as long as you focus on the scene.
It is a lot of fun creating your own pictures with different stamps-you get to be so creative and imaginative)
On this card I have used glossy cardstock, and stamped with these stamps:
019G Cloud Cumulus lg
139H Seaside Cove
107E Cloud with Sun
268E Sand Pattern
126B Palm Duo

Bacground paper I have made with shaving foam, and distress ink refills-that was really fun to do, and even my 4 year old  was helping me a lot)))
To color my card I have used different colors of Adirondack ink pads, and cosmetic sponges.

Why, yes... I am a goddess!

This was really fun to make! :) And I am so happy how they have turned out!
I had this idea, that I needed a grecian column for this card, I searched every where... but couldn't find anything at all.... And then... yesterday I was giving a cookie to my son-EURIKA!!! Cookie was wrapped in this paper that looked  EXACTLY what I needed! :) and card have been born :)
I took that paper, wrapped around itself, it gave me a dimention, and texture and caracter to the card.
The main image of the goddess is Kraftin Kimmie, and dove is from Whiff of Joy, which I colored with Copic markers.
I painted clouds on the background, with cloud stencil I have made.  I used Tumbled glass to color clouds on Neenah paper, glued my column, made a frame using Martha Stewart around the corner punch. Painted edges with Krylon Gold Leaf. Die cutted some clouds, added some glitter.
Goddes and dove I attached with Scoth foam tape.
I got inspired by this picture I have found on the net. I am sorry, I don't know who the author is, otherwise I would have posted their name as well.

By the way at I Love Scrapbooking blog, there is a Challenge going on right now, where you have to make a crapbooking project where you have clouds. Come check out designers work, you might get inspired! :)

I wanted to do a serene and dreamy card, it reminds me of a place called "Ice House" in California, where me and my husband used to go fishing for Trout, and camp.
I was always impressed with the night sky there-that was pure magic!
And hearing splish-splash water of the lake was so much like the lullaby.

049G Lakeside Cove lg
067B Reeds

170A Egret

In the moon light

I Am a VERY-VERY lazy blogger lately:)
What can I tell you, I do a lot of cards, but I wish someone else would post them:)))
I just like to play with my inks, and stamps, and get all the clutter in my head into the paper.
I did this card, and I had so much fun making it.
Maybe not everything is correct from the point of artists view... oh, well... I never studied art, so I do what seems good to me:)
All the trees and the buck
are from Stampscapes
The whole card is painted with Distress ink on a Neenah paper
some of the evergreens are done with heat embossing (for texture)
and LOTS of flower soft on the ground
Moon was made with the help of a mask

Wish you all a great day!
Thanks for stopping by.

Beach Scenes - a bit of sand and water.

Craft a Scene DT

Hello everyone!
I sure hope you have a good weekends, ours are very busy, trying to keep up with kids, and all the activities they are involved in.

Today I have some fun news to share. I am on the Craft a Scene design team! Craft a Scene is a challenge site focusing on scenic stamping. I am sure most of you already know that I love scenic stamping, so it is a dream come true to me to be on a TEAM.
And this is my first card as a DT member, our theme for the month of June is  Beach Scenes - a bit of sand and water.
The challenge is for a whole month so you have a plenty of time to get inspired and to join us in creating interesting and fantastic scenes.

To create this card I have used stamps from Stampscapes:
that would be a Palm trees,and the reflection of the water

And the sail boat, mountains, birds and the bottom text  are stamps from: " Hobby Art" different collections.
The text on the top is from Ranger.

I colored my image and the background with Distress ink, the grains of sand are made with acrylic paint of two colors: Brown and yellow, with the help of toothbrush.
The flower was punched out,colored, and then I added a touch of Glossy.
