October Giveaway Starts Today... Hello from Alaska!

Hello and welcome!

Happy October! I can't believe so much of this year has just flown by! I've been playing with distress inks to make some galaxy cards! And because I live in Alaska I've made them Alaska themed!

My card uses lots of Ranger distress inks and Perfect Pearls spray for the shimmery background and Simon Says Stamp die cut star! The mountain scene is an older Great Impressions stamp that I love to use on Alaska type cards! It's not Denali by any means, but it reminds me of Alaska! I backed the mountain scene with glitter black cardstock and foam mounted it to a Gina K Designs heavy weight cardstock. The HELLO and "from" is from Winnie and Walter "The Big, the Bold and the Happy" set. I wrote the word ALASKA because I don't have a stamp... yet! I decided to keep the background with color and the mountain scene just black and white or it would be too busy with both of them colored. I used Judikins diamond glaze on the star and sprinkled dark blue glitter on it before it dried for a little extra sparkle.

I've had requests from customers for Alaska themed cards and so I will continue with that venue for awhile!


Spellbinders Lacey Circles dies (5), assortment of stamps including Dot, Dot, Dot from Stampin' Up.
