Some random funnies

It's been a while since I made a series of funny ATC's so I decided to do one on women, because we can be pretty funny right? I used the fabulous Viva Las VegaStamps! stamps and here is the first ATC called "happiness shield" using the fifties housewife pointing

This next one is called "gang members" using the lovely 3 women in tubes stamp

and last but not least is the "how to be awesome" with the smiling lady holding chin

I hope you enjoyed these and got a chuckle and I would love to know which one was your favorite!

Spread your wings and fly

Hi there! This week we at VLVS! are having a blog hop with Art Anthology!!
How exciting is this right??? Here are a few places for you to travel to:

Viva Las VegaStamps! website
Viva Las VegaStamps! facebook page
Art AnthologyWebsite
Art Anthology Facebook Page

I made an ATC using the Italian Sonnet Background and the Demure Angel as well as the Art Anthology Ink Spot Colorations Spray, Art Anthology Blue Topaz  Dimensional Paint and the Art Anthology Garnet Dimensional Paint.  Here is my ATC:
 And here are some step by step pictures of the process.  First I put some Blue Topaz and Garnet paint onto my Gelli Plate using a foam dabber
Then I placed my heavy cardstock onto the Gelli Plate until the paint transferred.
I wanted the colors to be more muted so I sprayed some of the Art Anthology Ink Spot onto the cardstock and let it run.
Then once I dried the card with my heat gun I used the Italian Sonnet Background stamp and gold ink (doesn't that show up nicely on that background?)
I cut out the Demure Angel stamped image and placed it onto the cardstock and then added some sequins and punchinella.
Here is a close up
And once again the finished ATC
I hope you enjoyed my project!

Homemade Project Life

I bought the W R Memory Keepers 3 x 4 punch from Winners for like $16.99 and thought I would give it another try.  The last time I couldn't figure out how to open the damn thing so I returned it, plus I had bought it from my local scrap store for $33 so this time the price was right. 
I got the one with the square corners and that way I could either leave them square or round them myself with my paper rounder.

I wanted to do a page Project Life style using papers I cut with the new punch as well as Viva Las VegaStamps!.  How did I like using the punch you ask? It was pretty easy once I figured out how to open it but you do need to use a little force and it got tiring on the hands.  You wouldn't want to make a day of this that's for sure!

NOTE: you have to push down at the exact same time as unlocking this unit. I googled everywhere for this information and had to figure it out myself.  They should indicate this in the directions but they don't. 

I think this will help me use up more of my 12 x 12 papers and it will also be handy for cutting down any 4 x 6 photos.  Here are the papers I cut using a variety of ones from my massive, guilt inducing stash:
I liked how these all went together so I placed some of them onto my pocket page
Then I got the pictures I wanted to use and placed them onto the page as well and placed a few more things on.
Then I started adding some embellishments
Here is my finished page using the couple kissing, the man and woman symbol , the tag and the large arrow heart.
and here is the project without the watermark as it's cutting off the bottom of the page
and a couple close ups

I hope you enjoyed my project and until next time!
