Mother Giraffe and Baby from Creative Vision Stamps

Hi everyone, I've created a new card using stamps from Creative Vision Stamps.


I've used the Mother Giraffe and Baby, stamping them in brown ink then embossing them.  The image was die cut then matted with a larger die.


Canvas was added to a brown card and wrapped with ribbon.  The image was then adhered to the card.  The phrase from Cougarlicious was stamped and embossed, then die cut and matted with a larger die.

Butterfly Cards with Rinea Foiled Paper

Hi everyone, I've got a new post on the Rinea blog.


Nothing screams Spring like butterflies. These butterflies were die cut from Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and Gold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper using Cheery Lynn Designs Dies. The butterflies are intricate and die cut beautifully from the foils.



Creating a vertical card using papers from Lemon Craft, a simple die cut butterfly was all that was needed to enhance the hard. I adhered the butterfly bodies together as I wanted the wings to be free. A simple phrase completed the card.



My next card uses the same papers and was oriented horizontally. A different shaped butterfly was also die cut from Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and adhered to the corner.  The phrase was die cut and added with foam adhesives.

Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Tags with Expressions Craft

Hi everyone, I'm on the Expression Crafts blog today with a set of tags.  I find tags to be small pieces of art that are fun to create.  Use tags on gift bags or cards.  


I've used the Happy Bear stamp set which includes 3 different bears, a mini heart, a cupcake and separate sentiment.


I inked up this Birthday bear, coloring it with inks using an art dauber.


I used assorted Copic Markers to color in the second bear.


I used assorted scraps to create the tag and added the die cut elements.  Ribbons finished off the tags.

Blog Hop with Expo International

Hi everyone, I am participating in the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop.  This month we are working with Expo International, a wonderful site for trims and appliques.



I received Beline Lace Feather Fringe, 4" Glitter Chainette Fringe and rose patches.



I had this fun little pouch and wanted to alter it with these trims.


Using the 4" Glitter Chainette Fringe, I glued it to the edge of the pouch.


Then, I glued the Beline Lace Feather Fringe on top.  Sassy!!!


Next, I created a fun barrette by covering it with 2 strips of Beline Lace Feather Fringe.  Lining up the holes, I tied them together with pieces from the 4" Glitter Chainette Fringe.  Adding beads to the fringe created a fun effect.



What young lady wouldn't have fun with these items?

Frosty Penguin with Creaive Vision Stamps

My newest card for Creative Vision Stamps is this cute Penguin stamp.  Can you guess what he is thinking?



I created a background using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and white cardstock.  For a bit of color, I inked randomly about the background.  Then I matted the panel with navy cardstock and wrapped twine around the panel

The penguin was stamped and colored with Copic Markers then die cut and matted with a larger die
added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension

Finally to give the illusion of melting ice, I added some glossy accents.

My Blue Bird of Happiness

Hi everyone, I'm on the Proxxon blog with a new project today which I am calling my Blue Bird of Happiness. 



Supplies:
Imagine Ink - VersaFine Clair Pinecone
Indigo Blu Stamp
Petaloo, Prima flowers
The Robin's Nest Dew Drops


I began by using the Delta Sander to sand the bird.  Next, I used the Drill Press to drill a hole for his eye and 2 holes for the hanger.



I wanted some decorative details in the wood so I used the Power Carver to carve lines in the body and the tail.


I used Plaid Coastal Texture Paints in High Tide and Largo Blue to paint the bird.  I then painted Seal Grey about the body using a baby wipe to blend the colors.


Next, I added some texture by inking a grid stamp with VersaFine Clair Pinecone Ink and stamped it randomly about the bird.  Then I added a touch of ColorShift orange paint on his beak


Now that the base work was done, it was time to decorate.  I had lots of blue flowers, so I selected some Petaloo and Prima flowers.


To finished, I added The Robin's Nest dew drops as flower centers.


Thanks for stopping by.

Imagine and Precious Remembrance Blog Hop



Today is an exciting day. Imagine and Precious Rememberance Shop (PRC) have teamed up for an exciting 2-Day Blog Hop, May 16th  and 17th, 2018. During this hop, we will feature awesome creations from the Design teams at PRC and Imagine. Not only do we show you PRC's fabulous stamps with Imagine's outstanding inks, but you will also get a chance to win prizes.  


Today I'm using the Precious Remembrance School Days stamp set.  This stamp set is perfect to create cards for the special teachers and bus drivers in your child's life.





Because I needed to create a number of cards for the end of this school year, I chose to work with Imagine's VersaFine Clair Inks.  These inks are quick drying pigment inks that stamp crisp and clear images no matter how finely detailed the stamp.


Using the abc/123 stamp, I repeatedly stamped it on a white panel with Tulip Red.  Using the school bus, I created another panel by repeatedly stamping it with Cheerful.


Thanks was stamped directly on each stamped panel with Nocturne.  Clean, crisp stamping and no smearing.  A simple ribbon was wrapped around the panels before they were added to the cards.


I stamped a secondary sentiment in Nocture and added it to the bottom of this card.
