Altered Frame using this Month's Out of the Blue Kit from Frosted Designs!!!!

Hello again crafters!!!  It's Brandi popping in from the Frosted Designs Blog with an altered frame using this month's beautiful kit!

Here's a look at the frame:

As most of you know, my mother passed away last month which has been the cause for my absence over the past few weeks.  I've decided to make some tribute frames for members of our family so I'm sure you'll be seeing her quite a bit in the upcoming months ;-)

I started by covering the frame with one of the beautiful papers from the kits after I painted the simple wooden frame white (Picked up the frame for $1.00 at my local craft store).  I added in my photo, covering it using the silver doily overlay from the add on kit!

I added flowers and embellies from the kit in adjacent corners to add some pizzazz!

I used some of the Ranger blue mist from a previous kit to dye my trim from this kit blue, then added it across the bottom for contrast against the white background!

I finished with a number of the wooden embellishments that were inked using distress ink, then I added a bit of the crackle accents from the kit for added shine!

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)

Handmade Masculine Birthday Card for Creative Embellishments!

Hello there crafters! Just popping in today with a masculine birthday card I made for my dad this month using lots of Creative Embellishment goodies :-)

Here's a look:

I started my card base with my usual Tim Holtz papers as I do for almost any masculine card! I used some distress ink and the Distressed Checkered Stamp to add some accents to my background :-)

I am absolutely LOVING these Basic Alphas so I can spell out anything I like!!! I misted the chipboard black first, then used a white chalk marker to make a "grey-ish" effect.

I used one of the gears from the Steampunk Antique Bike Set to add as an accent behind my "clock"! It was misted with Lindy's and inked with distress ink for my desired effect :-)

I finished by adding some layers in the inside as well... I always go all out for my daddy ;-)

Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)

Tutorial Tuesday at Frosted Designs: Masculine Card!!!!

Hey there crafters!  I've been absent for a bit, I know.  My mother recently passed, unexpectedly, which has caused my entire life to turn upside down at the moment.  I am doing everything I can take it a day at a time, and sometimes, even a moment at a time.  But there's no doubt, this has been by far, the hardest thing I have ever gone through.  

I'm up on the Frosted Designs blog today with a masculine card tutorial.  I used this month's beautiful kit and some stamps from Creative Embellishments to make this wonderful card perfect for any occasion!

Here's a look at my card:

And some close-ups:

Here I used the Binary Stamp and Distressed Burlap Stamp from Creative Embellishments for my background, then used some molding paste over the Crocodile Stencil included in this month's kit from Frosted Designs :-)

I used some Lindy's Tornado black mist to color my Harlequin Lattice chipboard panel from CE and added some of the crackle accents included in this months kit :-)

Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
