ICAD 2016 Sampler

Hi!  I am a little late with sharing some of my ICAD 2016 Cards.  I have some to share with you today and I am working on my first video to share with you and I hope to do that this weekend.  I have to ask for some assistance from the hubby. 
So here are some of my cards, in no particular order. 
I will keep posting about them.  I am really enjoying the easy carefree feeling of these.  You should check out ICAD 2016 from Daisy Yellow.

Girly Dress Card

Hi all!  Happy Friday!
I  needed to make a cute girly card for a friends daughter.  Teens are a little hard to make cards for.  But I saw the skirt stamp and I knew I could make a cute card with it.  I want a kinda vintage feel to it, so I found some striped paper that I think works well.  Hope you like it.  

Supplies Used:
Just For Fun Rubber Stamps: B3881 PS-2 Sided Skirt Tops and G3882 PS- Pleated Skirt
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black
Decorative Papers
Card Stock
Glue and Denominational Tape

Have a wonderful weekend!  Happy almost 4th of July too! Be safe and have fun!

Happy Stamping and Loads of Hugs,

Classic Father's Day Card

Happy Friday! I am here today with a cool Father's Day Card for you.  I do a lot of mixed media backgrounds and wanted to try to incorporate that into my cards. I really liked how this background turned out.  Father's Day is only two weeks away.  So I thought I would get a start on it now.  Happy Father's Day to all you dads, step dads, grandfathers and uncles that are like dads out there!

Supplies I used:
Just For Fun Rubber Stamps: F2949 57" Chevy and G3861 Tattered Screen Background
Dylusions Ink Sprays- Cherry Pie & Vibrant Turquoise
Irresistible Colored Texture Spray - Summer Sky
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black
Distress Ink Pad - Mermaid Lagoon
Wink of Stella - Clear
Black Water Color Pencil
Watercolor Paper for my card background

To make my background I sprayed the texture spray first.  Then my other sprays.  I heat set them  with my heat gun.  You can't see it very well in the picture, but it's shinny and raised and crackled.  I just love how it turned out, so I think I may have to buy more of that texture spray.  I then stamped the screen stamp over the top of my sprays and dried it with the heat gun too.
I colored the Chevy with my Wink of Stella, but I couldn't get it to show in any of my pictures.  It made it look like it was metal flake blue.  
Happy stamping!!!
Hugs, Heidi

ICAD 2016 Cover Page

HI!  I have my cover page done for ICAD 2016.  If you are not familiar with ICAD, it stand for Index Card A Day.  It's a challenge by Daisy Yellow. See her blog here and her website here
I have made mine into a mini flip journal so I can take them with me when I need to art on the go.  The idea is to use as little as possible and just enjoy the act of making the art.  Something quick and easy.  No stress and No requirements, well maybe one, it has to be an index card!!
I will be back once a week with what I was able to create during the week.
If you join in, have fun!
 Happy crafting!

June JFF Challenge- 50's Flash Back

Welcome!  Today I am sharing my take on the June Just For Fun Stamp Challenge.
50"s Flash Back!
I love the 50"s retro look in just about everything.  I am pretty sure I would have fit well in the time, except I am not a big fan of dresses.  I love the slang they had, the fashions, the colors and the home decor.  So when I was told this was the theme for June, I was so excited to make something!
I hope you take the time to see all the blogs from our design team.  We have some very talented ladies here.
Make sure you enter our challenge this month.  You can win some really nice prizes.
