Jodie with her first DT post for Memory Maze

Let me first start by introducing myself. My name is Jodie Mason, and I am a wife and mother of 3 beautiful kids, a geriatric cat, adorable Labrador puppy and half a dozen chooks. Crafting has always been in my life, and now that I am a mother I am cherishing being able to pass some of my knowledge and skills on to my children. If you would like to find out a bit more about me or want to check out some of what’s been going on in my craft room lately, please visit me over at Jodie's Craftivity.
Now let’s get into it. To begin with I have a Birthday card that I made for my 2nd child who turned 7 yesterday. It was a really quick card as I was under the pump with this one. I have used pieces of plain cardstock in black and grey for the bases of this card. Dies were used to cut the shapes out of the black and grey card and a piece of watercolour cardstock was placed behind the shield shape window (it was coloured with several alcohol inks). There were 3 Memory Maze chippies used on this card; the Happy Birthday, Crazy Kid and Best Wishes sentiments.
The Crazy Kid chippie was painted with light green acrylic paint and then covered with green kindy glitz and glossy accents. The HappyBirthday sentiment was painted with Lumier acrylic paint in indigo, and then topped with glossy accents. Check out how much shine this can add to a chippie in the pictures.
On the inside of the card the Best Wishes sentiment was coloured with green alcohol ink and then covered with the green kindy glitz again.
The edges of the grey card were all inked with brown stazon ink. Once all of the pieces were prepared they were pieced together and Hey Presto!

The second item I have for you today is a canvas. Now I will worn you that this has quite a few steps and pictures to it, so check back in this afternoon for that one.

Until Then,
Creative Crafting,
