Alter it!

I am excited to not only participate in Splitcoasts color challenge today but also to use a newly released set by

Innovative Stamp Creations called Alter It!  The set of 4 also has a distressed ruler that wasn't used on this sample.

The filligree corner was stamped in Baja Breeze on Kraft CS and also on the Spellbinders curved rectangles die.  I sponged

the kraft edges with Tim Holtz Distress/Faded Jeans and the embossed die cut with distress Tea Dye ink.  The key hole

was embossed with Tim Holtz Distress/Tea Dye powder.  The card is finished w/ a vintage key and brads.  Hope you like it!

  Innovative Stamp Creations has released 2 new sets today.  I am very excited to share with you.  After working way too many hours between Thanksgiving and Christmas, it feels good to sit down and create again.  The other new set is called Alter it and is right up my alley.  Stay tuned.............  Anyway, for this card I used the new stamp called Reflections.  It was stamped on Basic Grey DP and embossed with distress Walnut Stain powder.  There is also a journaling lined stamp to fit inside the circle, perfect for hand writing a note or scrapbook journaling.  I layered it on a rust cardstock and mounted it on dimensionals.  The layer underneath is a piece of coredinations textured CS that was embossed with leafy branch cuttlebug folder and sanded.  The faux stitching was done using the easy stitches template by Paper Pizazz.  The photo corners are from a SU punch and the ribbon and felt ric rac are layered on a strip of chocolate CS.  The Sentiment is from an unknown source from my stash.  Sorry for the lack of posts over the holidays, hopefully I am back to creating, sharing and visiting other blogs.
