Throwback Thursday

Since I have been sharing some cards that I have made with embossing powder and water colour markers, I thought I would share an older card I had done.

For this card it is more about the stamp than the technique.
The stamp is a full coverage stamp, meaning…most of the stamp touches the paper when stamped.
After using VersaMark to stamp the image and using, clear (as the paper is white) or white embossing powder, then heat set the image.
The butterflies were the same colour as the paper, as the stamp was blank there.
I then used my Stampin' Up markers to colour the butterflies.
This could also be done with watercolour paints

I then inked the outer edges with ink.

I even did a video way back then with a tutorial :)
I made this card back in 2011.

Onto My Day:
I have been Defunkifying my Home, and yesterday I worked on the long needed Linen Closet.
I have been organizing and purging my home off and on for a while now, I have even been doing videos on the areas or rooms.

I am still debating on adding these videos on my YouTube channel and blog.
I know most of my followers come to my blog and YouTube channel because of my crafts, so not sure if anyone would be interested in these videos.
I was even thinking of starting a new YouTube channel just for Defunkifying my Home, but not sure if I could keep up with another channel, but not sure if I should add them to my current channel….so many decisions.
Any suggestions would be more than welcome :)

Hope you all had a very Creative Thursday :)

Tracy :)

  4. Pretty card.
    I have an idea!
    You help me defunkify and I'll help you paint!

  5. Very pretty card, I have only done that technique in a class. I sure have enough equipment to do it. My daughter and her boss are trying a new cleaning plan and hope to use my craft room to get some ideas on what they need to help people reorganize, downsize or get seniors ready for a move to a smaller place or nursing home. My daughter is a life coach and can help with the mental part of letting go.

  6. Really pretty card, Tracy! As far as the videos, is there a way in Youtube to have categories or sections? Then you could keep it all on your channel. Just a thought since I know nothing about uploading to YT. :)

  7. Beautiful card and one I really needed to see today as I look out at the crazy blowing snow. LOL!

  8. Oohh, pretty card :) I would just add the videos to your channel and then if people want to watch, they can :)

  9. I agree with Becky. I'm sure a lot of us will love to see the videos and those who don't can just choose not to watch them.... Och, and almost forgot: Love your card ;-)

  10. Such a wonderful card and love the butterflies! TFS


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
