Thanks for the kind comments on the family video I posted.  If the girls weren't at camp, they would be helping, too.  They love kitting.  I think Ken (my husband) and Mike (my brother) are really the only ones not excited to help – ha. ๐Ÿ™‚

And, just to show that Colin likes his dad's hobby just as much as mine, here is a photo of him helping Ken fly…


He is a little man trapped in a little body.  So funny.  Oh, and the dude is addicted to tie dye.  Thank goodness for some cool, inexpensive designs on  Love etsy.

Anyway… thought I would share a card I have over on 2peas.  I taught something like it locally, too.  It is a fun technique: I first stamped the background image with embossing ink on white cardstock and embossed with white powder.  I then cut a butterfly die cut and used the negative as a mask over the embossing.  As I held it there, I inked Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Ink over it.  I then removed the mask and embellished.  The embossed area resists the ink added on top, creating a fun faux patterned paper.

One more thing: For all your praying folks out there, please check out  I have been following this family's story – so heartbreaking.  If you are interested in helping out, please consider buying one of these.  I just did.  Please pass it on…

Take care! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Great pic of Colin, Jennifer.

    Love your card too. What a great idea! I’ll have to try it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m praying for sweet little Kate too. What a difficult time for her and her family. ๐Ÿ™

    I told my hubby about Ken kitting for you and told him he would do it to… At first he didn’t look too sure, but I convinced him he’d do it… because he loves me not because he’d enjoy it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hee.

  2. Great pic and great link, little Kate seems so sweet and her story is so so heartbreaking.

    Did you use tinted embossing ink on the white cardstock? I’ve been having trouble with Versamark on Bazzill and was wondering what you use!

    Colin is so handsome little guy. My DH loves tye dye too. We have even made our own. He had well over 50 at one time. He lost some during our last move, he does not know about yet. (wink)

    I loved this card so much from class, I saved the mask and purchased the stamp that night. You make really fun cards.

    Kate looks so much like my youngest but older. I will pray for her and family.

    Thanks for sharing:)

  6. Hey Jennifer! This is Amy (Holliday) Cribbs – I used to take your amazing classes at Haps (oh, I miss Haps). Just started to rededicate my focus to scrapping and card-making, so wonderful to see your stuff again – you still inspire and awe me!

    Hope all is well, just wanted to say hello!

  7. Colin is adorable and your card is amazing! Love the reverse masking technique you used…I am definitely going to try this! Thanks so much for sharing your talents. I look forward to your posts everyday!

  8. Colin is such a cutie Jennifer – especially in tie dye!
    I love your card and am especially glad that I purchased the background stamp. I see it used so often and just love it. The butterfly is beautiful and very clever – TFS!


  9. Colin is so cute. I saw the photo with the remote and had to share, my husband has the same hobby and our boys can’t wait to get a hold of the controls. My husband will be at Warbirds over the Rockies at the end of the month. It’s a wild time around here getting ready for the trip.
