A Post Card Album...Magic Tour

I used this Sat and Sun to make this post card album. My best friend Becky went for the Europe tour last month and these are the postcard that sent by her.

So sweet of her and I really like all the postcards, is really looking forward to open my mail box everyday after work. Thanks Becky.

I started with DCWV Rustic collection pattern paper and cut it into the album shape. This album die cut is from QuicKutz the Santa Workshop collection. The set that I used was the GingerBread set, and this is my favorite.

I distressed it with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink follow by stamping.

Yes, these are my collection of the rubber stamps. These stamp is very unique and they are all from Hero Arts. These are so suitable for doing a travel album.

Here is the individual page where I categorized it by name of places that Becky went. Her first stop was Praque.

Second place should be Budapest but too bad the postcard never I continue her journey with Salzburg.




And last stop is London...I used the map of London, is a bit small but that is the only UK map stamp that I have...

The back of the pocket, this is also one of the die cut from GingerBread...

The front of the pocket.

The back

Oh yah, I started to use Tim Holtz's Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint...I just can't help and fall in love with this media. Is easy to use, and also quick dry...

Butterfly is from Hero Arts latest Cling Stamp collection.

All the alphabet are Nutmeg by QuicKutz...

Another Christmas Card here and this using the new cling stamp from Hero Arts...

I use the fine gold embossing powder for the out line and followed by color pencil and glitters for the coloring.

I distressed the round edge bu using Tim Holz's Distress Ink - Broken China. Broken China always is my favorite...

Sending Birthday Wishes...

I managed to get this old stamp from JDA, and this is from Penny Black. This time round I tested the new Epicsix embossing and the result is very satisfying...not regret to own it...

Again the coloring method is using color pencil with blending agent Sansodor, I think I'm more comfortable with this method and is easy to control the colors and tones.

I'm using the new embossing powder from American Craft, the one that I used was Chestnut and I just like the effect. One good thing about this new embossing powder is very clean and you wont get mess around when pouring the powder. Is another must have items.

I'm done with this card and will be sending this card to a Birthday Girl tomorrow, Jo...
