Rev Up the Fun

Happy Sunday peeps!!

So sorry for the long silence, I have been crafting just not much card making, more on that in a bit
I wanted to share a card I made for the color challenge in Splitcoast,
This was the colors for 9-24:

The dessert option was to use the Chalboard Technique. This is a technique I had played around with a bit but not much so I decided to give it another whirl.
I pulled out this new to me set from Stampin Up called "Rev Up the Fun" and went to work.

I first pulled out some Basic Black card stock and used my Embossing Buddy to cover it just to try and keep the specks to minimum. 
I stamped each element with Versmark and embossed with White Embossing Powder seperately. (embossing with heat gun after each element).

All images and words come from this same set. I then used a sponge and some craft white ink to sponge around to add the "chalk dust look".
The lines around the panel was added using the new Chalk Marker from Stampin Up, I really love that pen.
I then stamped the "every day can be" part of the Joy Ride sentiment onto some white card stock using Gumball Green. I clipped the ends and curved it a bit and added it to the panel with some dimesionals.
I added some green "Candy Dots" and the green strip with some Black Rhinestones. Finished it off with clip and a bit of Gumball Green Ribbon.

I think it turned out great and I love that I was able to make a Man Card, which is not my forte.

So a bit of what else I have been up to lately:

Been making a ton of "Prim Pumpkins" I love primitive decorations and once I start something I tend to get a bit obsessed. 

I have been selling these locally and even shipped a few to customers. If you like and want any just shoot me an email!

A few more things I been working on:

I LOVE these Sunflowers: They are Super easy to make and have twigs for stems!

I also have been working on some Prim Christmas items, more on those later.

Thanks for stopping by and I will have more cards to share later, so did give up on me! :)
