The Monday weekly challenge for #SimonSaysStamp blog http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com is any craft that begins with an “A”. I created an altered mini-journal for my “A” challenge submission. The background paper was created with blended distress ink #rangerinks. and stencils #rangerstencils. I added a vintage black and white photo that I colored with distress inks, textured rick rack ribbon and embossed two corners with textured embossing powder. A small piece of dictionary page, a word banner and a glossy accent tiny heart complete the altered cover. Time to start writing!
Here is my creation for the Wednesday Splitcoaststampers challenge. I used an Impression Obsession bird stamp, inked and shaded with stencils. I added a book page wing and a tiny heart. Tiny strips of brown paper created the nest. The graph paper was printed from http://www.printablepaper.net. Inked stencils and embossed paper added accent and textures. Ready to send to someone special! #impressionobsession #splitcoaststampers #rangerink

Here is my card sketch for the sketch of the week for #alwaysplayingwithpaper. I used a Penny Black stamp, embossed with white embossing powder, added shading and accents with Ranger Distress inks, stencils. The embellishment fabric ribbon was from Heidi Swapp. Maybe this submission will be a winner!
Lawn Fawn stamps and die cuts work so well together. I used patterned paper for the flowers, leaves and accent paper for the front of the card. I used three different die cut circles for the background and added a word banner. The last touch was a small glossy accent heart. A simple card sketch layout that can be used for many different cards.
I created a card for the Wednesday challenge at splitcoaststampers.com. I used the bicycle die cut from Die-versions, made a template for the sloping hill and layered green patterned papers. I added stenciled accents to the grass and blue background papers. I stamped and printed out word banners. The final touch was sparkly gems for the wheels. Great inspirational card and ready for a special friend.
This was my design challenge for a Scrapbook Cove class to use Ranger Distress paints to create a decorated box After many different ideas, here is my final project. I created a die cut flower in shades of blue, silver and a scalloped edge and leaves using the new pistachio color from Ranger. I only had a few colors to play with. I covered the box and cover with patterned paper and added ribbon. Looking good!
