I'm So Grateful...What About You?

Hello and Happy Saturday!
It's a three day weekend for us and today was a busy one, but I have done a bunch and the day isn't even over yet. I started with a walk at the park with my friend (we completed 3.7 miles), then I did some shopping (groceries and craft supplies). Michaels had a 60% off coupon, so I found a Tim Holtz alcohol ink kit to try.  Couldn't beat that deal! Joann had two 50% off coupons and Hobby Lobby always has a 40% off coupon. Hubby and I also went to lunch since we still have some certificates from Christmas we need to use before they expire. 

Once I got home I started some laundry and then hid in my craft room. Well, I didn't really hide. Everyone knows where I go! : )

Today's project...
Resist Technique using Color Burst. I watched a video by Ken Oliver demonstrating how he uses his powders and I gave it a try. I tried to stay away from blue and pink so I pulled out crimson, orange, yellow, green, and violet.

The flower stamp (Doodle Flowers) is by Inkadinkadoo, the sentiment (Thanks so Very Much set) is by My Favorite Things, the butterfly stamp (SC Designs) was a freebie from a card magazine (Cardmaking & Papercraft), and everything was heat embossed with white Zing powder.

The cardstock for each base is by My Favorite Things and the enamel dots are by Teresa Collins. I cut the watercolor paper with a Wonky Stitches die by Avery Elle on my Cuttlebug.
Hope you are able to try something new. I am grateful to have a long weekend and can explore. How about you? Do you have MLK Day off? What are your plans?

Whatever you decide to do, enjoy!
Stay Creative,


  1. Georgiana, your cards are stunning! The colors, the technique, the design... everything is lovely. I hope you continue to enjoy your long weekend! I will be curling up with a book and then enjoying my hubby's day off with him. Thank you for the gorgeous inspiration today. :)

    Hugs and blessings,

  2. What beautiful and cheerful cards. Love the colours you used. This is a technique that I've yet to try. Looks so awesome, need to give it a go.

  3. These cards are gorgeous! It sounds like you are making the most of your long weekend. I actually have the day off, too! Usually we are having to use MLK Day as a snow make-up day, but we have been lucky enough this year to not get snow, so we have the day off! You can bet I'll be in my scrap room all day!
