Fun Friday with Pam

I have finally gotten my mitts on a Tattered Lace Magazine. I fell immediately in love with this little birds nest that was offered as this issues free die.
Imagine my delight when I cracked the pages to find not one, but several walk through ideas on how to use the die. I loosely followed the instructions. Started by digging through my scrap pile for the shades I thought would look good.
I used some inks to highlight the emboss bits, added some whimsy to the birds with note paper. Just a finger dab of ink for color. Make sure and do a dry fit before you glue. I am not going to redo the tutorial.
 Buy a magazine, and prepare to be thrilled!!
This is a card for my mothers Birthday this month. The one thing I did was to flip the die over and use it to shade my base paper before I glued the nest creation to it. Have fun, I know I did.

Thanks Pinterest.....I love a good birds nest!!

Distress Crayon Tutorial!

Karla here today, and since I picked up the Most Awesome Distress Crayons from Selena's truck last week I just had to share how I made this card with them!


I started off by taking a piece of Specialty Stamping paper, which is a little glossy and helped me move the crayons around a bit, but you could use a piece of white cardstock as well. I found some Heidi Swapp stencils, and for the polka dots and hexagons I rubbed the crayon directly through the stencil. I rubbed a bit of the other crayons on the white areas and smudged it with my finger. Then, I took a baby wipe and wiped through the stencils to create a negative effect.

I used one of the crayons to edge around the piece of cardstock and then gently smudged it with my finger to blend it around the edge. I used my new Hero Arts Neon Ombre ink pad to stamp on these Tim Holtz butterflies and then embossed them with clear Crystal embossing powder, which has a bit of shimmer in it. Another Tim Holtz sentiment stamp added detail to the front of the my piece, stamped in grey Archival Ink.

 Here's a close up of the finished piece. I added a bit of Pink Distress Marker inside the butterflies and a couple pink flowers at the bottom. I used the Distress Crayons to add colour to my seam binding ribbon, which Selena can get in by the roll! This is really my favourite ribbon. After rubbing it on I sprayed it with water and then rubbed it with my finger to blend it. The crayons don't automatically blend with water like the inks, but do blend when you manipulate them.

Thank you so much for joining me today! Have a fun and crafty week!

Fun Friday with Pam


There they are, just a few years ago, my two youngest pretties.
12 x 12 wall art piece
 Used a Fancy Pants chipboard fence as the background, I purposely secured the fence boards on the visible side. Usually you see this with them behind. I wanted something else to add dimension to the overall look.
A few delicate details cut form Prima Butterfly Paper {HERE}, real feathers from the stash. tons of flowers spray gesso and color manipulation. Days of drying time in between coats. 
This reminds me of Strawberry Shortcake ice cream.
