Explore the possibilities...

I have some new Tattered Angels cards to share with you today! On this first card, I sprayed the chipboard with Silver Sugar and Graphite Glimmer Mists and then added some Diamond Dust over the top for extra sparkle. The bird chipboard was left plain (also by Tattered Angels!). I liked how the white bird looked with the other colors, so I left it white. Papers are Little Yellow Bicycle (background) and My Mind’s Eye- Lush (green/houndstooth).

Here I used a Maya Road envelope and dressed it up as a card. I used a Nature Glimmer Chip and sprayed it with Lemon Zest and Sunflower Glimmer Mists, then sanded when it was still wet to get this cool peeling effect. (Actually, it happened by accident, but I like how it looks!) The stamp below it is from the Nature Field Notes Stamp Set by Tattered Angels (saying and frame). Cameos are by Webster's Pages.


The ticket card is also a fun Maya Road envelope! I love finding unique things to turn into cards. The airplane transparency is from the Travel line by Tattered Angels and the stamped swirls are Nature Field Notes Stamp Set again. I used Watermark Ink to get a soft effect. Lastly, some blue paint splatters and a Melissa Frances rub on saying. Ticket is My Mind's Eye.

You could use any of the planes and trains in the set for boy birthday cards also!

I thought the travel line would be cute on a graduation card as I did here. The big compass transparency is from the Travel set by Tattered Angels, star pin is Maya Road, rub on is Melissa Frances and the yarn flower was made by me. :) I cut the card's corners off to make it look like a ticket or a tag. The little star is an old one from my stash by Li'l Davis, I believe. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Antique Linen to soften the edges of the card.


Thank you so much for visiting today! Be sure to stop back tomorrow, there will be something SUPER fun happening!
