Me, MIA...

Hello hello my friends, how are you? Sorry that I have been MIA....I have been spending a lot of my crafting time playing this super fun game on my iPad or iPhone called Draw Something, so so fun and addicting! Smiley from millan.net

And of course, I missed my crafting... ink, glitter, stamps, and much more... Time for some stamping fun. I was totally inspired with Julie Ebersole's today video tutorial, Glittered Copics technique over at Ellen Hutson. Check it the video here. Super super cool!

Here is my take of it. I used the Hero Art Newspaper background for my card. Hope you like it!

Testing out the new distress markers..

Smiley from millan.netHello and happy Wednesday! So, after drooling on the new Tim Holtz distress markers for days, it's time to put them to work. And yes, I did, I did. It was so much fun. Here is what I did... I colored this pretty flower stamp from Hero Arts Blooming Meadow with distress markers, then stamp... and then spray with some water and stamp again (without re-applying with distress marker).

Top image is the 2nd generation stamping with spray of water (which created an awesome watercolor effect)

Below image is just with the distress markers...

I used Hero Arts kraft card stock. The card on the left hand side is the 2nd generation and right hand side is the original without the water. Which one do you like better?

A shopping weekend.

Hello and I hope you had a nice weekend. I had a relaxing weekend, spending some quality time with my wonderful husband on Saturday and I went shopping with my crafty friend on Sunday. I was a happy girl.

And I have a card to share... I just love this Vintage Dreams stamp and the Prim Poppy die cut from Memory Box.

Hope you like it and have a fabulous day!

Loves Me, Loves Me Not, Loves me...

Happy happy Valentine Day to you! Smiley from millan.netDo you have any special plans??? Crafting the day away or spending time with your sweetheart? Either way... I just want to stop by and wish you a happy day! As for me, I'll be cooking dinner for my wonderful husband tonight. I spent the day with one of my awesome crafty friend, we went shopping at the LSS (they are having a sale, SWEET!!!), we chat the day away, had lunch at a local diner, and did some crafting... What a lovely day!!!!

I found this cool stamp from my LSS (Ink About It), check out this dude from Stampotique. So so cool! And it's perfect for 'V' day! I used the Kissing Booth collection from Basic Grey. His flower for his sweetheart is a die cut from Memory Box called Chloe Stem.

Love the WINDOW...

Good morning, good morning my friends, and happy Friday to you! I'm totally in love with the window die from Memory Box/Poppy Stamps. And I can't get enough of it, so here are two cards that I created using the die.

Card 1 - Sweet little Tilda standing in front of her red brick house... I created the brick house background using Tim Holtz embossing folder, white Faber Castell gelato was added. And I can help to add on the flower pot, flowers, and vine (also dies).
Card 2 - A birthday card for my good friend Alice. Happy Birthday Alice!!! She loves owls, and her two adorable doggie. I thought it would be fun... Her two puppies are hanging out at the sofa, and the owl from the outside peeking in!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
