Prima Marketing Golden Coast Mini Album ~ FotoBella DT

     Hey everyone! I'm back with this mini album made from small paper bags, featuring the Prima Marketing Golden Coast 8 X 8 Essentials Bundle from It's been years since I made one, but this beautiful, beachy collection was perfect to highlight my last trip to California. Looking forward to going back in a couple of months! 

     The sand was created with the Dusty jar from the Prima Marketing Rust Paste Camouflage Set.

     I just love the texture, and added some small shells among the flowers and chipboard pieces!

     All of the paper edges were inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, including one of the Journaling Notecards peeking out of the pocket on the left. 

     The wood planks were stamped with the Prima Marketing Old Town Stamp using Archival Ink (Potting Soil).

     Then I added the ship's wheel and some screws made from paper clay using the Finnabair Mechanica Mould. They started out with a coat of Dylusions Paint (Ground Coffee), followed by Art Alchemy Paints (Rustic Brown and Magical Pond), and finished with touches of Prima Marketing Patina Effect Paste (Blue). 

     Some of the flowers and leaves got the golden touch with (Vintage Gold) Prima Marketing Wax.

     I didn't mind trimming down the papers from the 8 X 8 Paper Pad to fit this 6" X 6" album. 

     Thanks for looking, and shop to get the Prima Marketing Golden Coast 8 X 8 Essentials Bundle

Every Leaf Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Today is not only the first day of Fall, (which is my favorite season), but also my sister's birthday. So I made her a card featuring the Every Leaf Unmounted Stamp from Red Rubber Designs.

     I painted the background, leaves, and around the card base with Dylusion's Paints, spritzing the background with water to create an ombre effect. The small and large leaves are both included in the Every Leaf Stamp. 

     All of the embossing was done with Emerald Creek (Burnt Copper Leaves) Embossing Powder, including the medallion.


     Finally, the sentiment was stamped with the Sophisticated Sentiments Stamp.

     Thanks for looking, and enjoy the Fall!

Lindy's September Birthday Card

     Since sapphire is the birthstone for September, it inspired the blue in this card made with Lindy's Gang goodies!  

      My entry for the Lindy's September Color Challenge!

     I started with a TCW stencil and some Prima black gesso, adding color with Lindy's Sprays (Afternoon Delight Denim and Magnolia Magenta Gold) and Magicals (Danny Zuko's Denim and Yodeling Yellow). 

     The same colors were used on the flowers and leaves, stamped and embossed with LG (Black Forest Black) Embossing Powder. Then I used LG (Hollyhock Scarlet Plum) EP around the card edges.

     Since I didn't have the right shade of the blueish purple color from the mood board, I combined Magicals (Danny Zuko's Denim and Polka Purple) mixed with some water, and (Urban Amethyst) Spray, to create a bluer hue. 

      The sentiment and stitched circles were stamped with (Jet Black) Archival ink, and embossed with LG (Midnight Violet) EP. Finally, I finished it up with some sequins.

     Thanks for looking and stopping by!
