Make it Monday #21

Hi! Happy Wednesday!
Today's card is for this week's Make it Monday Challenge, using the "2 step polaroid masking technique"
This was kind of fun, i did stamp and emboss the clouds before i put my masks down to start any of the inking, then i just took a baby wipe to the clouds to wipe the ink off later. I kind of like how it turned out, if i were to make it again i think i'd make the focal point a lot smaller so i could do some more layering on the card and maybe a stitched border or two :)

supplies: everything's from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted
Cardstock: Rustic White & Kraft
Stamps:Background Basics: Gingham, Daydreamer, Polka Dot Basics, & Up, Up & Away
Ink: American Crafts Pigment Ink: Cricket & Powder; Jet Black Archival Ink, Distress Embossing Ink, Cough Syrup and Lemon Drop Jenni Bowlin Dye Ink
Embellishments: Red Baker's Twine from the Twinery
Other: White Zing! Embossing Powder from American Crafts

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think!

on non-crafty topics:

still busy helping my mom go through all of her stuff for her move. I had to order a shed to hold all of the stuff she's leaving with me, i can't wait for it to be built so i finally have a place for everything :)

here's a small sampling of some of the randomness of stuff from my mom's house:
a hat (yes, it really is a hat, i wouldn't recommend wearing it though, it weighs a ton!) i won for volunteering (well, being volunteered by my mom) for a show at disney world during their 15th anniversary celebration

my mom had to explain this one to me, it's a pot for mixing spiced nuts (for when a spoon just won't do)

my grandma's hand painted tea set

a pile of vintage hankies, most of them are hand stitched!

and last but not least, my Dark Wing Duck happy meal toys!
(when in trouble just call DW!)



  1. I love the little scene that you've designed - very creative to use the green and blue borders to create the ground/grass and sky. the polka dot sky is so cute too!! Great job.

  2. Becky this is just too cute, nice job!!!

  3. Your card is wonderful, the hat not so much. haha I really like the way you used blue and green on the masking. great idea

  4. Love the card! So pretty and spring-y. Also a fan of the Darkwing (hee hee), and my fav villain has to be Lilliput :)

  5. I adore everything about this card! Wonderful colors and great masking.


Thanks for stopping by! Comments are, as always, much appreciated :)

Have a fabulous day!
