Good Thursday morning to you peeps! We had a fun class last night, and another one is queued up this morning! :) So much new stuff in store right now - we're bursting at the seams! Yesterday I got the shipping notifications for the Spectrum Noir marker reorder AND the new We R Memory Keepers Photo Fuse is also on the way!! If you are a pocket scrapbooker, you're going to want to check these babies out - here's a great video to give you an idea of what this does...

Hello All!! Is April going as fast for you as it for me?? Crazy how time flies... :/

Anyhow, I'm back up on the blog today with a masculine Birthday card loaded up with Karen's chipboard gears and a few metal ones to fool your eyes! ;)

I started by embossing some masculine themed paper by Echo Park with a Tim Holtz embossing folder, then inking the edges & mounting it on a kraft card base. I then took my chipboard gear pieces (MISC-514) and coloured them black & bronze using Smooch Sprays. Once they were dried, I arranged them on the card face, leaving a place for the sentiment to go.

Once I had everything glued into place, I went back and added some metal embellishments to finish the card off. I used my computer to print off the sentiment that I wanted & used my Big Shot to cut it out in a ticket shape. 

I am so pleased with how it turned out & how amazing the chipboard pieces are. So nice to just simply spray, dry & design!!

A couple of close ups for you to enjoy the colours that the chipboard takes on!

Thanks for looking! Don't forget to join in our ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE here on the blog! Click on the button on the SRTC blog & upload away! Cheers! Have a great day! :)

Isn't this first SRTC Challenge exciting? Karen's products are just getting better & better! I combined a wood piece and a chipboard piece for this first challenge and made an elegant Baby Girl card. 

I first used the new Tim Holtz Spun Sugar paint dauber and applied two coats to the chipboard frame, FRA-486. When the second coat was almost dry, I drenched it in light pink glitter. I tapped off the excess glitter then used a spray sealer to keep the glitter on the frame where it belongs!

I used a sponge dauber to apply brown ink to the edges of the Sugar & Spice sign Wood-502 and then mounted it to the glittered frame.

Once the base of the card was assembled, including some cute brown & pink ribbon, I added some flowers & touched the corners of the sign with teeny pink gems. 

I just LOVE how it turned out and that the pieces are so versatile! It's just so easy to make these chipboard pieces be whatever you want them to be! 

Thanks for looking! :)

Happy Thursday peeps! What a gorgeous day out there - tons of golfers on the course & people in my neighbourhood were packing up the holiday trailers for camping this weekend!! Still moving product around to fit it all & make room for more new product that should be here next week. All the new lines are moving fast - so make sure you get in & get what you want - it's getting harder & harder to reorder with suppliers with this limited release concept now widely accepted in the industry. I got a call from the lab yesterday that I need to go in for some follow up blood work & a couple things today at 2:25 so I will have to close up at 2 to make sure I'm there on time. Don't forget I'm closed for the Easter long weekend as I get to head over to the Island tomorrow to FINALLY meet my great nephew & visit with my sister & family! :D I hope you all have a wonderful Easter with your family - take lots of pictures! I'm open today from 10am until 2pm - See you soon! Cheers! :)
