09/20/2017Hello, Crafters! Today I have a Halloween card, and I had fun using stamp sets that really aren’t for Halloween! Well, the new sentiment set is, but the cute trick-or-treaters are from the Ahoy, Matey set, and the black kitty is from Bicycle Built for You! The sentiment is from the new Happy Happy Happy Add-on stamp set and coordinating die set. The orange scalloped frame and the brown scalloped frame are die cut with papers from the new Knock on Wood paper pack. The sky is created by rubbing Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink and Broken China Distress Oxide ink onto watercolor paper with my Mini Ink Blending Tool. Then I stamped the stars with Lawn Fawn’s Yeti ink and poured their new White Embossing Powder over them, then heat embossed them. And I could not forget my trusty stamp shammy to help me keep my stamps clean in between all the stamping! Thank you for stopping by; have a great day, and happy crafting!
09/15/2017The new Lawn Fawn For You, Deer products are totally adorable, and I’m featuring them today for DriveByCrafts! I am going to make a bunch of these bookmarks and hand them out to my coworkers for the holidays! Of course, these could also be gift tags if you use one of the other great sentiments in the stamp set. The adorable papers are from the new Lawn Fawn Knit Picky Petite Paper Pack. I colored the images with Copic markers. Aren’t the sentiments just so cute?! I absolutely love that this set has the animals’ back sides so that the backs of the bookmarks (or tags) are just as cute as the front! Have great weekend, and Happy Crafting!
09/07/2017How about some cute and spooky today? I have that by featuring a bunch of Taylored Expressions products! Some of the products are newly released, and some are from past releases. At the bottom of this post are links to each product I used. The black kitty and the bat are both colored with Copic sketch makers. The background cloudy sky is created using Distress Inks. My final touch was adding Zig Clear Wink of Stella to the flying witch and bats. I’ll be entering this project into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Stamp It, and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Stamp It Thank you very much for stopping by!!
09/05/2017I have a card today for the Taylored Expressions 9th Birthday Sketch Challenge! I created a fun Halloween card! Because I had so much to fit in, I had to make it a 5″x7″. All of the TE products I used are in the Supply List at the end. Thank you for stopping by!
09/04/2017Hello and Happy Monday; I’m here for the DriveByCrafts blog today! I have always loved the Best Buds stamp set by Paper Smooches; so I was so happy when they came out with the coordinating die set for it! My card today is, of course, featuring that pretty set. First, I stamped the main images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored them with my Copic markers. I then die cut them out with their coordinating dies. For the background, I stamped the images with Lawn Fawn’s Manatee ink, and then colored them with very light colored Copics. After mounting the main images on the card, I added some Marshmallow colored sequins, and painted Zig Clear Wink of Stella on the banner. Hope you like! Have a great day, and a wonderful week!
