Golden Celebrate!

Hello & Happy Monday Crafty Friends!!
How was your Weekend?? Did you do
anything FUN? Boring? Lazy??

I sat down and made some cards along
with doing some coloring.... I'm still one of those
"Work in Progress" type of colorers. (YES I Know it's not a Word)
But it is now! hahaha... I really don't find coloring
relaxing.... I'm amazed at how many people say
it relaxes them... not me... I think it stresses me
out! Yeah.. I probably "over think" my coloring....
But that is how I am! 😃 I'm happy with most of
the images I did color... I just need to cut them out now
& PLOP them on some cards! LOL

Speaking of Plopping... I made another
card for School of course.... and I didn't just
stop at one!!! Take a look at what I made --

OMGOSH!!! I made 3 of them!! And I totally LOVE the way they turned out!!
I started out with the 2 in the back... making splatters and then
deciding on some Washi Tape to use... When I thought... HEY.. Why
not make another one using this cool Foil/White cardstock my friend
MaryAnn  gave me last year! - 😜

I made the splatters with some Distress Spray Stains - Black Soot, 
Tarnished Brass, & Brushed Pewter - The lovely
Washi Tape is from Joann's (Ms. Sparkle & Co.)

The cardstock I used is - Recollections 110 lb. Black, Georgia Pacific White,
Making Memories Metallic Gold Paper
The Stitched Star Dies are from Gina Marie Designs

The Stitched Rectangle Card Mat Die & (Celebrate) Word Die 
are from My Favorite Things - I cut the Word Die out 9 x's
(3) for each card - I popped each card up with Fun Foam -

I think the Gold Foil, with the black & White look awesome together....
These cards look so cool up close & in person! I may want to make 
a couple more just to have on hand for me!!!

Other products used --

Big Shot, Splatter Brush, Stick It Adhesive, ATG

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a FABULOUS Day!!!

WOW!!! Those cards are gorgeous. I love the black and gold together. I was home resting this past weekend. I was sick for a week. Ended up in urgent care last Tuesday. They originally thought I had strep throat but that came back negative. I was out of work most of the week (thank goodness for sick leave!). Anyway, back at work today and feeling much better except the stupid cough that I can't get rid of! Planning on cleaning up my room this week (you know how that goes!). Have a great week.

Gorgeous cards! I love how you used the washi tape over the striped background papers! That is such a clever idea! I will definitely be scrap lifting this idea from you! And I also get stressed out by coloring, haha! It is certainly not relaxing for me!

These cards are absolutely fantastic! I love the gold/white/black color combo and the foil is so eye catching. I totally understand you not wanting to color...I have no desire to color either! I am in awe of how well people can color, but don't want to do it myself. The extent of my coloring is using watercolors so I can cover a large area at a time ;)

These cards are amazing!! I love the pop of gold with the black! I think colouring, like anything else, gets better with practice. I don't like to spend a long time colouring and blending images, but some people do- and they look fantastic! If mine are good enough, that's ok by me ;) Everything I've seen that you've coloured looks awesome!
