Life is a Voyage

Life is a Voyage

Hey crafty friends...
Im here today to share my inspiration project for the current Mood Board Challenge.
I chose to inspire you with a mixed media canvas.

Here is our Mood Board

Here is my project to inspire you.

Using Victorine Originals Map Background stamp, I first stamped my image.
I decided to cut it and make two peices of a map.
Using gesso and my DecoArt paints I created a background color on canvas.
I then attached my map peices.
I used moss and twine as well as a few things from my stash.
I didn't intend for this to go more ocean themed but that's the beauty of art.  Sometimes things just are going to be what they want. 

Remember you can use anything from the mood board to inspire you.
Something from a picture or even a color.

Make sure you head over and join in the fun.

Elegant CAS Card...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!!

 I thought I would share an Elegant CAS Thank you card!

I don't know about you - but sometimes you just need a
Quick card - Also an Elegant one at that!
Sometimes all you need is a Beautiful Stamped Sentiment and
some Beautiful papers to make it happen!!

That's where this card comes into play!!

I'm using the Thank You (2873-J) Stamp set

From Victorine Originals and some Beautiful 
papers from DCWV (Lilac Love)

I started out by grabbing the pretty papers and deciding on the
stamp I planned to use - Then I grabbed a Stitched Scallop
border die and cut out enough room so
my large sentiment would fit nicely onto my card front

Knowing that my Designer paper had gold foil on it
I knew I wanted my sentiment to POP with gold as well
So I stamped my sentiment right onto the
paper with some versamark ink then
added my fine gold embossing powder 

I carefully heated up my sentiment with my heat tool
only heating up small sections at a time
(I didn't want to warp) my Elegant paper with the heat

It came out PERFECTLY! I was so excited to 
see the transformation of the gold embossing (Who Doesn't?)

After I let it cool for a minute I wanted to add a 
Stitched Rectangle border around my design
for a nice finished off look
Then I added a piece of White Fun Foam
behind my card front and set it off to the side for a minute

While the card front was very pretty - my plain white
card base didn't do it justice -
So I decided to add foil to it!

I folded my Card front in half and 
I adhered some Scor Tape all around the border
on the front of my card

Then I grabbed a piece of Gold Foil from
my stash and laid it right on top 
of the adhesive - I used my Bone Folder
to rub the foil into the adhesive
(making sure it would stick)

Then peeled off my gold foil - to find
a beautiful gold foil frame!

Now that I was happy to have the foil frame
it was time to adhere the card front to my card base
and Voila My card Shimmers and shines with gold!!!

I added some gold sequins and a Prima
Flower I found in my stash!
