How To Create a Galaxy Card Background

How to create a galaxy background for your card. So simple you will be shocked. Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

Right off I have to say I give FULL credit to Kristina Werner for this technique.  I have followed her for a long time and recently she has posted several videos with galaxy background ideas.

I created this card using the galaxy technique, but I used Stampin’ UP! inks and an aqua painter to create the background.

Fun Masking Technique GDP041

Fun masking technique using crafty paste. Using the layering love stamp set from Stampin' UP! Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

The photo of this card does NOT do it justice.  The dimension of the masked hearts brings so much fun texture to the card and really gives it an extra boost of fun.

I used some white craft paste and mixed it with night of navy reinker to create the deep blue hearts you see on the card.

This card was created for Global Design Project color challenge this week.  I love this color combination.

I also have to toot my own horn, and say I was one of the winners of last weeks challenge, you can see that card HERE.

The Only Way I Enjoy The Bar Scene

5 card ideas + 1 stamp set featuring the Mixed Drinks stamp set from Stampin' UP! Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

Did I totally catch you off guard with my post title?

It’s safe to say that I am not a bar scene girl.  I am sure you have gathered.  No judgement on those that enjoy the bar scene.  Get your groove on.  It’s just not my scene.

Here are is the deal.  I drink maybe a glass of wine or two a week, if that.  I usually enjoy red wine with dinner and I live at the foot of wine country.  So I am practically required to at least have a taste for wine.

However, beyond that, I don’t drink.  Not for any big giant reason, I simply do not like the way it makes me feel.  I don’t like feeling out of control.  So I avoid anything that makes me feel that way.

This stamp set however let’s me enjoy the bar scene through art.  How funny is that?

Here are all the cards I made using this set.  Hope you enjoy.

5 card ideas + 1 stamp set featuring the Mixed Drinks stamp set from Stampin' UP! Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

I created this card using my copic markers.  I drew in a bar top and colored it with my copics.  I added a little sign up on the left side of the card and did a little shading to create the effect of a sign.
