Fun Distress Ink Smooshing & Die-Cutting Techniques!

 Hello crafty friends!

I had so much fun making this project!  I hope you will check out the youtube tutorial for the tips and tricks! 


I was inspired by Tim Holtz's December Facebook lives where he demo'ed all kinds of cool techniques!  All the instructions for this project are in the tutorial link below.  


Btw, I purchase my supplies and my opinions are my own.  They are linked below (AFIL-thank you so much for supporting my channel/blog!)  Hope you will check them out!

Note:  I couldn't find a cardinal:(  Also, I didn't mention in video that I used Ebony Nuvo drops for the bird's eye.  

Supply List:
I will see you again soon!  Take care!

Clean and Simple Card--Sweet 'n Simple Giveaway Hop!

 Happy New Year!!

Hoping this finds you well and that the new year will be soooo much better! 

Today I'm sponsoring a YouTube Valentine Giveaway hop with the Craft Collabs group.  When I found out the theme was clean and simple, I was a bit nervous as those aren't my wheelhouse and I don't send many Valentines.  So, I dug through my stash and soldiered on.  I hope you will join me on the journey that has useful tips on making a minimalist card!


The supplies are linked below (AFIL- Thank you!!)  Here is the complete tutorial.  Don't forget to follow the directions for the giveaway which is a $25 gift card to the (legitimate)online craft store of your choice!!  Check out the other stops for lots of inspiration too!
