Crafts Galore Encore Monthly Challenge - Make a Card


It's September and that means it's time to reveal this month's Crafts Galore Encore challenge!! This month please make a card and you'll have a chance to win 3 digis OR one digi set of your choice from our sponsor Beccy's Place.


Unfortunately a friend of mine experienced a loss in her family and I needed to make a bereavement card. I thought Beccy's Place digi Spring Magnolia would be a great place to start. So, I printed this digi at normal size on Neenah solar white cardstock and pulled out my Copics to make an A2 sized card.


I haven't colored in a couple of weeks so it was fun to try my hand at this magnolia. I especially enjoyed adding the cast shadows from the petals. I would never even have thought of doing that before taking the Copic certifications. The colors I used (pictured below) are pretty true based on the magnolia images I found on the Internet.


The cardstock is from Stampin' Up and the embossing folder is an Anna Griffin Cuttlebug called Climbing Rose. I thought it accented the colored image well. The stamped sentiment is from The Stamps of Life Sympathy4You set. Memento Tuxedo Black ink is my ink of choice these days.

Here's another look at the focal image which is raised on the card using Sticky Doos 1/8" thick adhesive foam squares by The Paper Studio. At the last min. I decided to grab my wink of stella clear pen to add some subtle shimmer to the magnolia petals. I love the result.


I hope you enjoyed this project and will join in on the challenge. Up to 3 entries per person please.

Good Luck!

Heartfelt Creations - Bella Rose Leaves Canvas


I love a great find! I was milling around TJ Max and found a five pack of canvases on a random clearance table. I figured hey, this will come in handy some day! Well guess what? Today is the day! I'm dipping my toe into mixed media. I needed a daily reminder for my weight loss journey so I chose an appropriate quote and my fav stamp (that I own) by Heartfelt Creations - Bella Rose Leaves.


To achieve this look, I stamped the image in the upper left hand corner with Stazon ink. Then I painted the entire canvas with gesso. When it dried there was a light outline of the stamp showing through the gesso. I used those guidelines to trace the stamped image with Stickles. After about a couple of hours drying time, I used brush stix (chisel and round tips) to add color to the leaves with Tim Holtz distress inks.

I then added the quote in my own handwriting and faux stitching around the edges using a Copic marker. Next, I sponged on distress inks to blend a two-color background. To activate the ink and leave a subtle spotted background, I sprayed on some sheer shimmer spritz by Imagine Crafts. The final touch was some bling of course!

Supplies:
  • Flat canvas 7 1/5 x 5 3/4"
  • Heartfelt Creations - Bella Rose Leaves
  • Gesso
  • Stazon Ink - Forest Green
  • Copic Marker - 100 Black
  • Stickles - Pine
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Forest Moss, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean, Broken China, Worn Lipstick
  • Recollections - clear bling
  • Imagine Crafts (Tsukineko) - Psst! Sheer Shimmer Spritz: Sparkle, Brush Stix
  • Nicole Heat tool

Here's a close up of the Heartfelt Creations - Bella Rose Leaves. I think it is a great focal point for my  daily reminder. This stamp is versatile. It can be used alone or with the Bella Rose stamp set and/or the Bella Rose Die set.


Thanks for taking a peek at my latest project. I'd love to hear your opinions on my work and Heartfelt  Creations.

Tiny Hello Cards


When I give prizes I like to include a handmade card with a handwritten note inside. I just think it gives it a nice touch. For my last two giveaways I created these tiny cards. The tulip card is like 4 x 3" and the other is about 2.5 x 3" big.  I'm into coloring with Copics lately I figured I'd pick some cute stamps I always wanted to color and get to it!


 Both stamps are from Recollection and the sentiment is from The Stamps of Life. Here's the colors I used...


I hope you liked this quick post and I hope my winners ... both named Linda enjoy them too!

"Blinged" Messenger Bag



What are you up to today? My 4th grader wanted a messenger bag (instead of a backpack) for school this year. We found the perfect one a Kmart but I decided to bling it up with pink crystals to give it just a little pizazz since the bag is dark black.


I added Glamour Glitz iron-on crystals using my Glitz 'n Go by Kandi tool. It works with batteries and it only takes several seconds for the adhesive to melt and fuse to the fabric.


I had a package of medium and one of the small size. I really like the look of the embroidery and the bling. My daughter loves it and if anyone else gets the same bag - there'll be no denying which one is hers!

Have you ever kicked something up a notch like I did with bling or in some other way? I'd love to hear about it. Leave me a comment and fill me in chile!

***********************



Elephants are a fav circus animal for my kids!  I've always wanted to send them to school with those cute and encouraging lunchbox notes. With school starting in a week I decided to give it a try. I also wanted to try water coloring since so many crafters have been doing it for a while. Both notes are flat, double-sided notes made from one sheet of watercolor paper. I started out on the smooth side and left the textured side for the sentiment and/or hand written note.


I didn't want these notes to be perfect or too fancy, just a quick show of affection for my kiddos. I started by cutting the watercolor paper to approximately the size of ATC cards, stamping in memento tuxedo black ink and wetting the surface with a water brush. I colored directly on the wet watercolor paper with Tim Holtz distress markers and blended with the water brush. On the back I scribbled with markers on the wet surface and blended for a tie die type of background. 




For the pink elephant I wanted a lighter color so I wet the surface but unscrewed the water reservoir so no more water could be released. I scrubbed with the markers on my Tim Holtz grid blocks and picked up the color with the water brush. I think I like this method better because it gave me more control. I opted to leave the back more open for a hand written sentiment matching what my child might be experiencing at the time.
  • Gray elephant - 
    • Inky Antics Balancing Act HoneyPOP stamps
    • Tim Holtz Distress Markers - picket fence, faded jeans, pumice stone, mowed lawn, tumbled glass, festive berries, stormy sky
  • Pink elephant - 
    • TPC Studio- Circus
    • Tim Holtz Distress Markers - Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry
  • Tim Holtz watercolor paper
  • Water brush
  • Memento Tuxedo black ink

Anything goes! August Challenge - Crafts Galore Encore


You're not going to want to miss this!! It's an anything goes challenge at Crafts Galore Encore! Create a project any way you like and post up to 3 of your creations this month to win $12 gift certificate to Di's Digi Store, our August sponsor.





I recently became Copic certified on standard and intermediate levels so I put my new skills to work on this cute journal for my 9 year old daughter. School starts soon and I will give this to her on her first day of 4th grade. 



I am obsessed with the rag doll stamps and dies by Clear and Simple Stamps! Meet Chloe. I am an avid collector of these stamps but until I took the certifications, I was not comfortable creating scenes and coloring them. Well, I put pen to paper in this project in a big way! Here's how it all started...



I cut a panel of Neenah solar white approx. 6.5" x 4.25" and used 9 stamps, Memento inks and a mask of Chloe (made from an 'all over sticky' post it note) to create this scene. Only the cloud stamps is by Recollections. All others are by Clear and Simple Stamps. 

After coloring the scene I decided to use the panel to decorate a soft-cover journal from the dollar store. I found one the perfect size and framed it with American Crafts glitter ribbon to give the panel a matted look. To unify my project, I stamped Chloe inside the back cover. My daughter might choose to color her or leave her uncolored. We'll see...



The journal was striped and designed on the front and back. I left the back cover design there. Here's some close ups of Chole and the journal. My stamping was a little sparse on her eyes so I added some Uniball signo white pen to simulate eyeballs. Due to the masking, I also had to draw in a bit here and there (with .3 Copic Multiliner) for the swing surrounding Chloe. I rather like how it came out. Don't you????


Copics:
Grass - YG61, 63, 67
Sky - B0000, 00, 02
Hello and clouds - C1
Dress - R81, 83, 85
Heart - RV09
Flower - R20, 29
Rag doll - E11,13,15
Tire swing - C1, 5, 7
Branch - E25, 29
Hair - E21, 35, 37, 79
0.3 black multiline
0 Colorless blender

Clear and simple stamps:
Rag doll Chloe: love
Rag doll scenes 1: grass, trees
Rag doll scenes 3: tire swing
Rag doll Carlie hello: hello, sunshine, sun
Little critters: tree branch

Mask created with all over sticky post it note for Chloe 
Uniball Signo white pen for the eyes
Memento ink - cottage ivy, Bahama blue, dandelion, rich cocoa, tuxedo black
Clouds - Recollections fun borders
Scotch ATG adhesive
American Crafts Glitter Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see your entries in this month's ATG challenge! My daughter asked for a panel just like this to color. Once she's completed it, I will post it on the blog as well. Stay tuned!!

For the Boys Blog Hop: Congrats Graduate!


Hi Everybody! Welcome to the For the Boys Blog Hop! 

We all know how hard it can be to create guy/boy themed projects, so this hop will help you with that! You'll find tons of inspiration for the men and boys in your life!! We've also got GREAT blog candy for those who leave a comment on and follow the participating blogs (see more info below)!

OK! If you came from Alicia's blog, then you're in the right place. If you just happened upon this Blog Hop, make sure to head over to Jenny's blog so that you see the full hop from the very beginning. 


******************************************************

Crafting for the fellas has always been a tough one for me. I love all things pink, frilly, sparkly, flowery etc. and it's hard for me to create anything without those essentials! LOL! But when a friend's son graduated from high school recently I decided to make an extra special manly card for him. I hope I was able to sufficiently dial it down on the frilly and turn up the masculine in my design aesthetic. 


I was inspired to design the outside as well as the inside of the card which is not my norm. But I figured, if I couldn't add all my go-to accents it would make it look more interesting to do more with the inside of the card. Recollections - Regent Street fit the bill as the inspiration for this masterpiece. It has all the manly card stock and designs you can handle in a variety of hues.

Kiwi Lane templates assisted me in varying the pattern and colors. I tried out many curvy styles but felt that straight lines were the best in this case. Using Memento ink I stamped images and sentiments from the Hampton Art Signature collection. Since I just finished the Copic certifications I was compelled to color the cap (and a bit of the sentiment inside the card) and am very happy with the results!


Supplies:
  • DCWV - green square 5 x 5 card
  • Recollections - Regent Street paper pad
  • Kiwi Lane - mini strip set
  • Hampton Art Signature Collection - Graduate stamps
  • Memento - Rich Cocoa ink
  • Copic Markers - B93, B95, B99, 0
  • CTMH - Durables Triangle Studs

Use a Physical or Digital Stamp - Cards Galore Encore Monthly Challenge


Welcome back to another Crafts Galore Encore monthly challenge! July's challenge: make a project using a stamp or digital stamp!


Photobucket
July's sponsor is Fred She Said Designswhich offers a wide variety of digital products with a floral flair and cute characters too - Digi's, Pre-coloured images, Papers, Sets, Fred's Flower Kits, and even digital cutting files. Have some fun with Fred!

Fun indeed, cuz if you win, you'll get a generous prize of $15 credit to spend at the Fred She Said Designs store!!! 



I was given the Emma & Rosey digi which comes with or without the butterflies. The digi comes in a singular image and in a sheet of 4 to print out.  I love choices! The page included 4 images, 2 with butterflies and 2 without. That way I didn't waste any of my special card stock and had a couple of images to practice on before deciding on my coloring implements. 

For the first time I colored a digi using only Wink of Stella brush markers by Zig. Well, I had to use a Copic for the skin but other than that it's Wink of Stella. I decided to go with the butterflies and love how it came out. I did a minimal amount of shading and it was very quick to complete the project that way. Freedom!!!



Here's a slanted view so you can see the unique shimmer Wink of Stella pens create. Now I am going to blow your minds.... guess what? I used a spellbinder's die to cut out the image in my cuttlebug for the first   time! AND.... I added the background (card stock was white) AFTER I colored with the Wink of Stella. "What?" you say?? 

YES I DID. It was a risk. I had no mask. I could've messed up all the effort I put in. But guess what? Wink of Stella dries quickly and doesn't pick up the Distress Ink. I used a dauber to get it on there and a water brush to soften it. In the process of trying to steer clear of my images I created that white halo around the image that makes it look good (by accident) score!! Then I stamped the sentiment full strength in the same Distress Ink used for the sky. This was a time saver for sure. Give it a try!

Supplies:
  • spellbinders die - fleur de lis rectangles (largest rectangle)
  • Copic X-press it blending card
  • Copic E11
  • Zig - Wink of Stella
  • Recollections 100 lb white cardstock
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Stormy Sky, Mowed Lawn
  • The Stamps of Life - Crayons2Stamp "hello"
  • waterbrush
  • bone folder 
  • CutterPillarPro
  • Scotch ATG adhesive

Here's the back view. I simply cut a rectangle of 100 lb Recollection card stock about an inch longer than the card (A2) scored, folded and flattened it so I could adhere it to the back of the card front. Voila! I hope you enjoyed this presentation and will join in on this month's challenge!

Lawn Fawn Kiwi Lane Christmas '05 Layout


My 9-year old daughter and I got some uninterrupted quality time together to craft this week. I've been planning this project in my mind for years and finally bit the bullet. We are making an album of our Christmases with family over the past 9 years and will add to it each year. My side of the family lives about 6 hours away driving and we only see them a few times a year. Those times are special and we wanted to give this album to them for one of their Christmas gifts.

In the first layout, Zora is just a couple weeks away from turning one year old at her first Christmas. She chose pictures of just her and me and my husband for this one and a second layout to come will feature auntie and grandma sharing in her special moment.


I'm teaching Zora how to design scrapbook pages with designer collections like Lawn Fawn's Peace Joy Love templates by Kiwi Lane. In the process she schooled me on a few techniques! Go figure. Children are so creative. It doesn't matter how many classes I take and certifications I get, she's amazing and keeping me on my toes. I guess you're wondering what she taught me....


I allowed Zora to choose any embellishments she wanted from my Christmas section in my ScrapRack. She chose pine cones and candy canes along with a Jolee's Christmas tree. The pine cones are singular but she said I'm going to make a wreath. I was thinking...what? but look how nicely it came out and accents the page?! I was like go Zora, go Zora, get busy!! (dating myself for real!) But really, it's nice that someone enjoys what I enjoy and that I can share it. Sigh.....

The red cardstock is by Bazzill and the patterned ones are by Lawn Fawn. Kiwi Lane templates Happy Trails and Spook Alley were used. She traced the designed on the back side of the cardstock with a signo white uniball pen and cut it out with Elizabeth craft fussy cut scissors.


The photo mats were cut with the Cricut Expression 2 from the wintertime layout on the Artbooking cart by CTMH. The vellum sticker is by Anna Griffin Yuletide Greetings. The title is made out of K&Company's Christmas themed Chip Box. They are not self-adhesive so she used Zots glue dots and Scotch ATG to adhere them.

The "1st" portion of the title is customizable Thickers by American Crafts. The font is called rainboots. They come in white and the top (and bottom) is a sticker. You can add anything to the top to make it match your project. We decided to go with ultra fine transparent crystal glitter. I cannot remember where the pine cones and candy canes are from. They are with recollections or Jolee's. Another adhesive she used was Xyron 2.5" sticker maker.

I hope you enjoyed this Christmas in June presentation. I'll be sure to share more of the layouts my dear daughter creates as we create "the gift of a lifetime..." (wish I had one of those echo mikes for that phrase - smile!)

Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Birth Announcement Frame



I got crafty this past weekend! I made a birth announcement frame for my son's daycare teacher. I was inspired by the song "Isn't she lovely" - Stevie Wonder.  I also was dying to use this Heidi Swapp frame and the new Tim Holtz Distress glitter. This was a labor of love and a craft of truly epic proportions. The nursery colors are pink and brown. Pink is my favorite color so I was tickled to work on this project. The walls are pink so I though focusing on brown would allow the birth announcement to pop on the wall.

Supplies
  • Heidi Swapp decorative wooden shadow box frame 13.5" x 11"
  • Recollections - felt bow, bling, sequin bear
  • American crafts - Thickers
  • Adhesives: 3D Galazy Gloss, Hot glue, Glossy Accents, sticky dots by The Paper Studio
  • Ribbon - stash (perhaps from Micheal's)
  • My Mind's Eye - lost and found two polka dot cardstock
  • Basic Grey - "happy day" flair from the Hey Girl collection
  • Tim Holtz - blending tool, Vintage Photo distress ink and distress glitter
  • Buckle Boutique - Dazzling Diamonds (mounted to mat board and cut with Sizzix die)
  • Flowers - pebbles, paper studio - spare parts, prima, jolee's, recollections
  • Copic markers - E37, E18 hand colored pearls in the bottom right corner


I printed the picture at 25% and edited it in PicMonkey to add the birth info and a simple frame. The picture is mounted on two layers of the leftover part from pop dots. I use it all! 


Although it's not my usual style, I took a risk and created a collage with flowers and accents. Some I built by laying with foam tape. The flower in the lower corner was made by my friend Lyne and I added my new fav craft item - dazzling diamonds by Buckle Boutique. My friend and CTMH rep Cardmonkey Jarvis gave me some to play with at Eileen Hull's Paper Trail. Eileen brought mat board and sizzix dies to get our crafty juices going. Thanks ladies!!



Tim Holtz distress glitter is like glass glitter but without the glass (YAY!). It goes on best with a wet glue that dries clear. I tinted the decorative part of the wood with Vintage Photo distress ink first just in case I missed any spots with the glitter. The result is a vintage look with a brilliant shine. Love it!! I also love the depth of the frame. It's perfect for really tall embellishments and for layering to build the perfect scene.


I attached the ribbon to the back with hot glue using plaid hot glue helpers. The best thing that ever happened to me!! I was able to spread the hot glue and press it with the tools and not get burned or make a mess! Woo hoo! I will use hot glue much more often now-a-days!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this post and will let me know what you think!
