Also I had the dreaded apartment inspection. I thought for sure I was going to be busted when the apartment manager opened the refrigerator. Luckily nothing fell out. The next day I cleaned and organized it. What can I say I'd rather be crafting than cleaning any day. This year the whole apartment passed with flying colors. Now I can relax until next October or November.
My sister liked so much a card front I made with the snow person that I decided to make a few cards production line. Usually I do individual cards with every card being different. These have some subtle differences. Especially since I had to salvage them after a few stamping disasters. I couldn't understand why the forest was not stamping nicely like it had done in my first card. I discovered later that Stazon Ink and acrylic paint don't like each other. :-( Or at least the paint I was using. After all my painting, crackling,texturing,etc. I decided to see if I could salvage them. I think I actually like the first three fronts I salvaged with part of my stamping mess showing through tissue wrapping paper better than the one I painted on the back side of the tissue paper after stamping.
I had so much fun painting,airbrushing with a marker, using molding paste, and using one step crackling. Not to mention stamping with two Just For Fun Stamps. :-) I'm so in love with this snow person.
Stamps used are:
Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to adhere the printed sentiment image I modified in Printshop so it would go with these cards.
Are your cards made? Stop by tomorrow when I'll have a card posted using a shaving cream background.
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
