Mixed Media Hop

My project today is not my norm… I do not typically make many mixed media projects. Then I found the Marabu easy marble paints! I have used these paints for card projects but I wanted to see how they would work with a wooden frame. I purchased a few cheap frames from Walmart in case this was a flop. Here is my video showing my process and the end result! I love it. Please hop along with all of the other great creators in this fun hop.

My first blog hop!

I was selected to participate in a blog hop featuring cut files from Jill Cameron Creations. I decided to make 4 cards with a few of the cut file options. Head over to https://jillcameroncreations.com to check out the great cut file options that I have used.

Of course the rainbow option caught my attention. I cut out the rainbow and clouds using heavy weight card stock. I then colored the rainbow using my Arteza everblend alcohol markers. The thank you sentiment is also from the same cut file. I used mirrored gold card stock to cut this out. I coated the clouds with Lawn Fawn liquid stardust. For the background I used the My Favorite Things cloud stencil and Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean. I also splattered the background with water and then the liquid stardust. I LOVE how this card turned out.

For my next 3 cards, I used the layered diamond cut file. This set has 3 differed layers that are meant to be put together. I decided to cut the file out from 3 different card stocks. I used a light purple, a dark purple and black. I then mixed up the layers to create a unique look for each card. I backed the first card with mirrored card stock. The second one was back with patterned paper from Brutus Monroe. The third one, I made into a shaker card. The sentiments were also from the cut files. The words were cut from black mirror card stock and the shadow layer was cut from vellum. I enjoyed making these cards. I am fairly new to using my Cricut machine so I was quite pleased that I was able to figure out how to do this.

#TeamTinySweet Video Hop

I am again participating in a YouTube video hop for channels with less than 1,000 subscribers. By clicking on the link in my video description you can check out all of the great videos in this hop. The added bonus….it will be ad-free!

The theme of this hop is sweet. It is my passion to give back whenever I can. To me that is being sweet. I am going to spend time throughout this year to work on cards to send to the LGBTQ+ teen community who do not have family support at the holidays. Check out @realmamabears on Instagram for more information.

My cards are featuring products from Brutus Monroe. They are also allies to the LGBTQ+ community. I am stenciling using 3 different techniques. The rainbow glitter card ended up being my absolute favorite. I intend to re-create this card many times!

Here are the supplies that I used. If they are in stock, you will be able to find them at http://www.brutusmonroe.com

Live Like Roo Card Drive

Hello my crafty friends,

Do you have a stash of cards that you have created and you are not sure what to do with them? I have a great cause that you can send them to. Below is the blog post for the Live Like Roo card drive and all of the details for sending in cards. This is a great cause that helps families when their dogs are ill. Care packages are sent to them and the goal is to be able to include a handmade card with the package. Here is a sample card that I have been working on to send with my package.

I don’t know about all of you, but I love crafting for a cause!
