Scrap Happy

So, I have been a little scrap happy lately, which is a good thing.  This year I used some of my tax rebate to jump start the scrap mojo and boy howdy did I have fun shopping.  I am going to blame a long time friend for one expenditure, but its a good blame.  If you have not seen Whimsy Stamps, I suggest you check them out.  I feel in love with a couple Kenny K stamps when a friend sent me a couple samples.  Well, if you have a wild side and like to stamp then here you go.  And as always I had to buy some new Distress stuff, stains and paints for the most part, and a huge bottle of Distress Stickles Dry Glitter.  I haven't used it yet, but I hope it will be enough for a while.

Well once I got all these fun products in my hands I had to play, and play I have.  Fingers dirty, desk top a mess, and cuteness all around.  I am learning ways to play with the Distress Paint as well as ways to utilize my Distress Markers.  So, here are some things I did this past week.
Kenny K--Download Diva, colored with Distress Markers and Gelly Roll Pens

Kenny K--Colored with Distress Markers
I love using scraps, this card was created with scraps of paper!

Kenny K--Firefighter, colored with Distress
Had a lot of fun playing with this one and of course used scraps of paper

 But, my favorite thing I made this week is this cute little Missing You Card.  I utilized my scrap stash of course for the colored card stock.  Otherwise, I used the Distress Paint to create the Wrinkle Free Distress Look and then added some Distress Ink and a little Metallic Distress Stain.  The Mesh is actually Drywall Tape colored with Distress Stain and Glitter added for a touch more bling.  The stamp is Kenny K's Devilish Donna and I colored it with Distress Markers, Glaze Pens, and Glitter Pens.  A Prima Flower with a gem brad and some staples for a more "goth" look and some punches to add the sentiment on the outside.  The inside reads: "It is the Friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter" Marlene Deitreich.  I had so much fun.

Well that is all I have for now, so until next time Scrap Happy and hop on my friends hop on.  Bunny

Regaining my Scrap Groove

It has been awhile yet again, but I have been trying to get the scrap groove back.  It has been coming, thanks to inspiration from Tim Holtz and Ranger.  I have recently really been trying to take time to scrap and these are two places that I seem to visit the most.  But then again how could you go wrong with seeing what Tim is up to. is something I created this week.

Using the spring color palette challenge colors from Ranger I created this card.  Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, and Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Olive and Coffee Archival Ink, Kraft Glassine paper, Coredinations Tim Holtz Distress paper, Prima Flowers, some ribbon and chipboard, oh and some Rock Candy Stickles... I made a little butterfly or bird out of a Prima Flower and a heart shaped piece of chipboard, oh and the stamps are Wendy Vecchi Studio 490.  I used two different Sizzix Texture Fades to emboss the Coredinations paper, and of course I inked it all up.  So much fun, and I for the most part used all scrap paper.

So, I will try to be here more often to share what I have been doing.  Hopefully my next post will be of my Scrappy Hole all finished.  Stay tuned, but for now, never give up and never surrender, hop on my friends hop on.  Bunny
