Distress Marker Spritzer

Hi Everyone, 
Today I have two cards. I've been trying to figure out ways to use my TH Distress Markers and thought this would be a great tool to not only finally put those markers to good use, but to also play with some stencils. The Spritzer has been out for a long time, I just finally broke down and picked it up. Check Michael's...it's on clearance. 

Both cards are standard A2 size cards (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"). I used a set of stencils from Heidi Swapp to create the main focal point of the card. I have to say I can't remember what color I used to spritz the background of the Always card, but I do remember the pattern paper is from an old October Afternoon collection. The "always" sentiment die cut is with some dark brown cardstock. 

This next card is done with the same basics from the Always card. 

Something I've had in my stash is the Hero Arts Ombre Inks. I only have a few of these inks, I think I'm going to need some more :) I used a Simon Says Stamps Celebrate stamp set with matching dies to create the balloons and stamped "happy" from that same set with Archival Black Ink. The ties on the balloons is with my favorite May Arts natural twine.

Birthday Brew

Hi Everyone, 
I love this cute little set from Newton's Nook. Really how cute is it...Coffee and Kitties? Hello! Adorable! ha

The card base is a standard A2 top fold card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"). I used some pattern paper from a Teresa Collins paper pad that I have in my stash. I also used my favorite die set from Simon Says Stamp, Stitched Rectangle Die. 

For the background of the top mat section, I used my Antique Linen Mini Distress Ink with the Tim Holtz Spattered stencil to create that coffee stain look that is usually on my desk anyway.
The kitty (I named him Herman, Scott that is for you) is stamped with Archival Black ink and colored with Prisma Pencils (PC1099, PC 1051, PC 1070, PC 1018).

For the greeting I stamped it out with a sentiment from the same Newton's Nook stamp set on some scrap from the pattern paper. I flagged the end and popped it up on the card. To give is some dimension I added some platinum gold thread.


Finally, to finish off the card I sprinkled some pink sequins.
