Marker Tower KaiserCraft Style

I fell in love with this marker tower from KasierCraft the minute I saw I knew I wanted to really make it pretty to go in my studio.  It holds a ton of copics and is just the thing I needed.

The paper collection from KaiserCraft that I used is These Days.  The colors are perfect for that shabby vintage look.

The key hole was created using one of KaiserCraft's wooden flourishes.  I covered it with 3-4 coats of gold embossing powder and then while it hadn't set up 100% I stamped into the embossing powder.  I love the look it gave.

I always love to make the back just as pretty as the front and with this paper is was so easy...that and a little distress ink.

And here it is all filled up in my studio...isn't it just beautiful.

Heartfelt Wednesday

I really love the way this card turned out using the newest stamps from Heartfelt.  Mixing up the flowers with a guy stamp really made for a great finished result.  Heck guys like a little bling and flowers too, right? 

I also used Tim Holtz's new distress markers on this project and let me just say, they are a must have. The paper and the beautiful sparklets are from KaiserCraft. 

If you would love to learn more about how to create this card, please go to Heartfelt's'll also get inspired by the rest of the design team.

Prickley Pear Monday

I love Monday's as it's always a time to get inspired by Prickley Pear Stamps and the rest of the design team.  Today I created this simple card using the Hibiscus Stamp and die, Graphic 45 and some of the new Magic 8 punches.

Have a great week and I'll see you Wednesday.
