11/13/2017Who couldn’t possibly love the new Lawn Fawn stamp set, Here We Go A-Waddling?! That’s what I’m featuring today for my last ( 🙁 ) post for the awesome Drive By Crafts design team! I stamped & colored (with Copics) each image multiple times, because I knew I wanted to create a full band type of scene. Then after getting some hills die-cut and laid out, I played around with the little guys until I could get a cute scene full of musical penguins! It was definitely a stress-free project, and just lots of fun. Thank you for stopping by! And HUGE thank you to Drive By Crafts for having me on their design team; it was truly a privilege!
11/06/2017How about some adorable piggies today?! We have a couple from the Reverse Confetti Cured Stamp Set! I created this cute birthday card for the DriveByCrafts blog.
The images are colored with Copic markers.
Have a wonderful day, happy crafting, and thank you for stopping by!
10/27/2017OK, I am really getting into this Reverse Confetti thing! DriveByCrafts, I think you have really started something here! Today I am featuring Merry Christmoose; this holiday card is 4 3/4″ square. I stamped the background trees onto Copic-friendly paper, then stamped them again onto masking paper. I cut them out, covered up my trees in the scene, and created the background sky using Distress inks. Then I colored the trees. For the moose, I stamped him, colored him, and hand-cut him out with a white border. I have to admit something… when I went to stamp the cute sign image in the set, it was GONE! Yes, I had taken it out earlier, and somehow I lost it. I have looked EVERYWHERE (and went through my FULL crafting garbage can piece-by-piece, AND crawled around on my crafting room floor for a long time meticulously looking everywhere – ugh!), and it is lost. So, the cute scene on this card can still be adorable without the sign, but image how great it would look WITH it! So, my advice for you today is DON’T TAKE STAMP IMAGES OUT OF THEIR PACKAGING UNTIL YOU’RE READY TO USE THEM! LOL, thanks for stopping by!
10/26/2017I’m so excited to share this fun new stamp set with you by Taylored Expressions (TE)! I’m guest designing for them this month, and if you haven’t seen the Sneak Peek days, head over to their blog! This stamp & die combo set is called If Snowmen Could Talk; I made a standard A2 size card, and I was having so much fun with the different faces that I made a mini card, also. I stamped the snowmen in Copic-friendly ink, and colored them with my Copic Sketch markers. For the background skies, I used a stencil I made, rubbed Tumbled Glass Distress ink onto the paper with my Mini Ink Blending Tool – easy peasy! The great frames that say Happy Holidays and Merry are made using the Picture Perfect Vertical die set. I painted Zig Clear Wink of Stella on both snowmens’ buttons. What fun these 2 cards were to make! And this stamp set has so many other cute faces to choose from, along with great sentiments! Thank you for stopping by, and you can see the entire October Release here!
10/25/2017I just love participating in The Daily Marker‘s 30 Day Color Challenge! Not only does it give me a great excuse to do a little coloring every day for 30 days straight, it then leaves me with a bunch of colored images that are then ready to be used at any time! That’s how this project for today started – I had 2 Mama Elephant stamp sets entirely colored and die cut, so I decided to make Halloween cards with them! The stamp & die sets I used are the Meowlloween stamp set and coordinating die set, and the Meowlloween Extras stamp & die set. The grass is die cut using the shorter grass die from the My Favorite Things (MFT) Grassy Fields die set, and the fence is die cut using the MFT Farm Fence die set. The scalloped frame is from Pretty Pink Posh’s Scallop Frame die set. And the last die I used was for the outer rectangle cut; that was the largest die from th Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackables Rectangles die set. The background sky is created by blending Dusty Concord Distress Ink and Black Soot Distress Ink onto Watercolor Cardstock with my Ink Blending Tools; I used Squeezed Lemonade for the moon. The adorable Halloween paper all come from Doodlebug’s October 31st 6×6 paper pad.
I stamped the sentiment on the imside with Lawn Fawn’s Yeti ink. Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day, and Happy Crafting!
