Paper Pieced Ducks

The challenge at Lawnscaping this week is paper piecing

 I also dug through my stash and pulled out some neglected eyelets for the Use What You Have Challenge #10 at The Sweet Stamp Shop
Here is my stash of eyelets, brads and rhinestones
 And for CAS-ual Fridays  cfc110
The ducks were stamped first of the chevron dp then onto various dp, cut out and pieced over the chevron stamped ducks.  Colored their bills and wings with Touch Twin Markers.  Used my CropODile to punch the holes an set the eyelets.  Stamped the sentiment with Memento Teal Zeal onto yellow grid dp.  Stamps used:  Gina K Oh Baby!.  Chevron and grid dp by Mel Stampz.  Cardstock used:  Gina K Pure Luxury White, Blue Raspberry and Wild Dandelion.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed Media Masculine Birthday

It's been quite a while since I have posted, but this summer has been very busy.
I used the challenge at Just Us Girls to use mixed media on your card.

This is also for the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge to use any embossed work

I dug through my stash and found all of these goodies.
The background is adhesive backed foil embossed then painted with black acrylic paint and sanded.  Added some Magic Mesh and a couple of die cut gears that were painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint.  Stamped the sentiment on some paper thin cork and layered it onto a Gina K Denim die cut banner.  Added 3 eyelets and tied some twine through them.  Layered the foil background onto some black cardstock and then onto a Gina K Denim card base.

Thanks for taking a look!
