 Disclaimer Notice: I’ve received products/compensation as part of Sin City Stamps manufacturing my stamps. This project however, is 100% my own project! Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I explain more HERE!


Happy Monday!!!
Today I am sharing with you my "True Friend" Card using Ranger Distress Oxide Inks along with two sets of my stamps from Sin City Stamps.


Begin by applying the distress oxide inks to a craft sheet; mist with water. Gently dabbing card stock to the wet mist. Continue to do this with the distress oxide inks until you achieve the color of background you would like; drying between colors. This will create your background base for your card.


 Stamp with Sin City Stamps Grunge Background Stamps using the Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink.




Spatter with Titan Buff Paint; dry.


Adhere prepared background to card stock mats and card base.


Repeat same method as background to create pretty distress oxide ink paper for flowers and sentiment.


Stamp flowers and sentiment from Sin City Stamps Sympathy Set to prepared card stock.






Corner punch prepared sentiment; adhere to card stock mats.
Add to front of card front with pop dots.

I am sharing  my "Life is a Grand Adventure" Mini Album.
My husband and I recently purchased a small travel trailer; we are planning a grand adventure this fall. I thought making a fun mini using Authentique Pastime Collection would be perfect for our adventure.


I began by die cutting and covering my mini album with Pastime pattern papers.
I add a frame to one of the journal pieces from the collection and added it to the front with some fussy cut pieces and stickers.


Inside Cover and Page 1


Page 2 and 3


Page 4 and 5


Page 5 has a hidden pocket behind a photo mat so I will be able to add a few small photos.


Add a small metal clip and ribbon to the tag.


Page 6 and 7


Page 7 has a pocket to place a tag using one of the journal pieces from the Pastime Collection along with a photo mat.



The tag is a great place to add more photos or other Epherema.
