Using the Tim Holtz Distress dabber in white,

I dabbed a flower stamp with the Distress paint then

stamped around the bottom of the card.

Using the same stamp, re-stamp the pattern slightly

off the first white pattern with the black stamp pad.

 Use accent stamps for boarders.

The diamonds were dabbed with white, then outlined with a white gel pen.

Grab a blank index card, and spray with ink spray for butterflies.

Then stamp the inked index card with a butterfly stamp a few times. Cut them out,

To add detail, color in your stamped butterfly with markers,

 then glue in place.

Let Dry.

Have fun!!


Fun Ways to Decorate an Altoids Tin

Paint and Clay!








Puff Paint, Stamps and Embellishments








If you use your imagination the possibilities are endless and you could get completely addicted! The last two are actually Christmas ornaments that I made my mom.  I mod podged a small chain for a hook to the tops, to hang from the tree. If you open it up there is a picture of my family. A great idea for a gift or to show family photos through the years.

I hoped this sparked up your imagination! Now let’s go up-cycle some trash!
