Star Thanks Masculine Multi Media Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I needed a masculine thank you card for someone I don't know much about. I decided green and brown based on some DSP I picked. The stars are chocolate brown and matte bronze. The smallest star is a Sizzix star that I swiped bronze gilders paste on. I used gilder's paste on most of the edges, applying it with my finger (yes your finger turns bronze). 

I wanted texture so using some...

Beach And Flipflops Thanks Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I had a sample chunk of watercolor paper that I used for testing the color choice for another project, then I stamped off the shell phrase on it real quick. Later I looked at it and thought...ooo this is pretty, The color I used is Memento Zeal Teal and is a re-inker that I dropped onto my craft mat and sprayed it with water. This chunk was placed face down on a portion of it that I'd spread...

Home Three And We are Finally Too Far To Easily Visit Family | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We finally decided we'd prepared all that we could and it was time to leave our home base area. For our first journey far from home, we chose a 4 1/2 hour drive to the Thousand Trails near Long Beach. Of course it was dumping rain when we arrived and most spots were under water. We chose a spot that looked like it would not pool any water on the door side of the trailer. It did have a small...

I am hanging out at the ocean for a few weeks. We are at Seaview in Washington and will be moving on to the ocean in Oregon next. I wanted to make an ocean travel card today, so that is what I did:) I cut some watercolor paper (140lb cold press). I used the Memento re-inker teal zeal and made a wet ocean mess on my craft mat then put the watercolor paper face down. After that I applied a few...

Jar Of Flowers Note Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I made a mess of my example jar of flowers card. I am not sure I am brave enough to to post it here. I do have an excuse, It was late in the day and I did not take the time to stamp the two other white blanks as I didn't quite get the altering the shape of the stamp on the acrylic block to get the greenery to bend over each side of the jar.. I spent quite a bit of time combing through all of...

Cat In Window Let It Snow Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

This card is a CASE of a Pinterest card that I've seen done many times and different ways. This is my own version of it. I colored the background image with Copics (sorry did not log the #s used for this as it was such a quick coloring) and covered it with vellum for the wintery window look. I took some lace to make the window topper. The cat is kraft cardstock with Vintage Photo distress ink...

Our New Home In LaConner | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

We moved from Birch Bay Thousand Trails down to LaConner. What a difference. It is like night and day between the two locations. Each has its plusses and minuses. Birch Bay was flat and had major water issues. We chose a pull through spot on a hill this time. We did choose a sewer spot again which has been lovely.

We've now been here over a week and the biggest issue is lack of cell or...

Bird On A Branch Thinking Of You Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

In our very small traveling home, there's not many places things can hide. In a narrow set of upper doors we store our electronics and notebooks. Somehow a USPS priority mail box, the small one, filled with last summer's unfinished stamp-a-stack project lie hidden. I found it two days ago and was thrilled. I had just finished my March birthday cards and was so pleased to find an instant...

Masculine Woodland Birthday Card: | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I have a couple of backgrounds left from a crop in November where I made up a big collection of sponged backgrounds. I made this one for a masculine card. I just liked the blue to brown. For that crop I did not have my stash of woodland bits to try with it. I was pleasantly surprised when I put a prepped framed birch trees on this background and it went perfectly.

I sponged the deer...
