My Craft Spot Challenge #51: Inside & Out

Good Morning!! What a busy week. So glad that it is the weekend. Two days off and then 5 days straight of all the kids means no craft room again. This weekend I need to get all the stuff done that I want. O I got a new cartridge!! Tags Bags Boxes and More 2!!! So excited to get sometime to play with it this weekend. I have been looking up You Tube vidoes for tips and tricks with it so I should beable to get through it fine!! If you own it and would like to pass any tips along I would appreciate it!!

Anyways here is a card that I made for my best friend who is leaving today to go back to the Philipians for another year:(

What I Used:
K Andrew Designs Art Stamps : Winger Things
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps : Sweet Gretchen
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: aged Mahogany
Cuttlebug Folder: Floral Fantasy
Self Adhesive Foil
We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper: Stub
Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils

I bought the foil at a local craft store for 10/$1 they are self adhesive so much easier to emboss then tin foil. They are sheets measuring about 6x8. I will have to go and pick up alot more as I am loving it!!

I am entering this into the My Craft Spot : Challenge #51:Inside & Out (Include a sentiment on the inside and outside of the card)

Have A Great Weekend!!

God Bless!!



  1. This is gorgeous, Kristan!! I love the foil!! I have been meaning to try embossing aluminum foil but I think I will look for some of this self adhesive foil instead!! Thank you so much for the inspiration my sweet friend!! I hope you get some rest and enjoy your two days off...and are able to get some crafting done!! Have a wonderful weekend :)

  6. Hey Kate, thanks it was hard having my friend leave again, I got to see her three time in the 2 months she was here so that was good. I got the foil from Gerri's (crayola place) way out past lansdowne (they have a store in ptbo square but no foil there)You can find it at the back of the store they also have 12x12 american craft card stock, felt foam all really good prieces, just thought i would let you know incase you had never been there before. i am sure they have lots left, although I plan on going out and getting more on the 28th after my daughter's first qymnastics lesson. Hope you had a great weekend

    1. I have been to Gerri's - but years and years ago. Thanks so much for the tip!! I'll be sure to check things out! (And I'll be sure to save some things for your trip there too!!)

  7. LOVE that background! It is very eye-catching! The sentiment is beautiful too! Thanks for joining us at My Craft Spot!
