Hello friends! Karla here today with one last retro card in keeping with our theme this month – Take It Back June! I wanted to do a masculine card today, and I love playing around with Distress Oxide Inks and Distress Inks so I decided to start with an inky tag. I used sequins from the Evergreen Bough and Free Spirit sequin mixes to embellish the card. I love choosing sequin colours based on my backgrounds – even mixing and matching different mixes!
Here’s a look at the fun background I created on this tag using my Distress Inks and Oxides by smooshing them on a craft mat, spritzing with water and then dabbing the tag in the ink several times. I used my sponging tool to add a little colour over top of everything, holding a film stencil in place while inking with brown Distress Ink. I love the effect dripping water on top adds at the end!
I used some of my favourite Burlap String from the SMS shop! I added it to the top of the tag and then used it to tie on a wooden button. For a background paper I chose this fun 3D glasses print from the 6×6 For The Boys paper pad from Your Next Stamp. I love the way the film strip stencil, the glasses and the TV all tie together!
I added Emerald Creek Weathered Wood embossing powder to the edges of my focal image as well as inside the card on the beautiful stamped sentiment from Your Next Stamp.
Hello again my scrappy friends! Here with a layout featuring my grandson again and his many faces and acts that constantly keeps me in stitches…lol! He is a character and in this photo, it shows some of what he loves to do. I remember when my children were small and some of things they did were not funny to me at that time. Now that I have grandchildren, everything they do is hilarious! I don’t understand it, but I think its funny. That is why some people are more happy being grandparents than parents…lol.
Ahhhh these are so nice and I finally got them even! Lol, I am know for not getting things even on my scrap pages..
For a last minute touch, I added these word strips in place of journaling not the layout from Tim Hotlz. This saves me time and also the strips say everything I wanted to say in the journaling.
