Tinkerbell and MFT

Hi All,

Today is a very sad day for me.  It is my last post as a one crazy stamper designer.  I am excited to see the new team starting in January and wish Lora and the store the very best in the upcoming new year.  This was one of the best design experiences and I really enjoyed working alongside these wonderful, talented ladies!  I hope to join in some of the upcoming challenges and will be a lifelong customer!  Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments along the way on my creations!

I am taking a full break from designing in the upcoming months.  It is a much needed break as I finish my last semester in college for my bachelors degree.  I will try to pop in every once in awhile and hope I can participate in different challenges around the web.

Here is my last creation:
 I used the adorable Kraftin Kimmie Tinkerbell and the My Favorite things dienamics and sentiment on the inside (below)

Ryder Cole

Hi All!

This has been a very busy few months over here!!!!  This is my last weekend to get studying because next week I have all of my finals.  Whew!  I was able to sneak away and get a little crafting done!  It was much needed!

I keep grabbing this image!  I love it!  It is perfect for teens and I NEVER can think of anything for them!  I love Ryder Cole!  He really just makes the card come alive all by himself!  I used some fun paper in my stash and used those SUPER cool mini screw brads that are in the store!

Enjoy your week!

Queenie and Princess

Hi All,

Have you seen the adorable Saturated Canary line of stamps?  These are pretty new to me but the first time I saw these I knew I HAD to add them to my stamp collection!  They are soooo cute!  I used the Queenie and Princess image.  Love how sweet and girly this image is!  I colored with my copics and added a hint of lace and some dots to finish off the card.  Enjoy!

Kraftin Tinkerbell

Hi All!

It has started to get super cold here!  Of course California cold is pretty mild but it hasn't helped that I have had that nasty cold that has gone around!  I have had it for over a week.  Usually I can just take a day and work through it but this one has had me down since last Thursday!  I did find time to play with the adorable Kraftin Kimmie Tinkerbell though.

I did keep it pretty simple and it is hard to tell in the photo but I added some really pretty shimmer to her wings.

Enjoy this months challenge of anything goes!

picture perfect

Hi All,

This image reminds me of one of my best friends!  Whenever we go out I can expect her to say "SMILE!" and the pictures on facebook in a matter of minutes!  It makes me laugh because it is so her!  I think this will probably be us in another 20-30 years with her still yelling "smile!"

I used Art Impressions Picture Perfect.  I tried to make it look like a Polaroid with the black matting.  I colored with copics and kept it simple with just the image.

Hope you enjoyed!  You have a few more days to get in on this months clear/acetate challenge.

Double the Fun!

Hi All!

Well I have two cards to share with you today!  I was unable to post with all of the other talented ladies on the design team due to the loss of a close friend of my husbands but I still wanted to participate in this months challenge!

This months challenge was to use clear or acetate.  I used acetate as the card base!  Such a fun way to make the basic square card!  I used the adorable Walkabout Wallie.  I also used MFT Dienamics for the grass.

My next card uses Ryder Cole.  I love these images because they are great for the in between masculine group.  I used MFT Dienamics for the chevron pattern.  I also used the fun brads in the store that look like screws.

Art Impressions Party Girls

Hi All,

I had sooooo much fun doing today's card!  It was one of those that felt easy.....Believe me, some of these cards just don't want to flow!  I used the super cute Art Impressions Party Girls!  The set comes with some great sentiments that are very versatile and can be used with soooo many different images!  I also used Memento Black to stamp my image and copics to color.  I had some scraps of some fun paper in my stash that I used with some larger 10mm brads!

I think with all the stores having holiday stuff my head is already thinking Christmas!  I love this image and I do have to admit it doesn't get as much love as it should!  I used the cuttlebugs snowflake folder for the background and on the Santa suit I used white liquid applique!  LOVE how that turned out and super, duper easy!  Visit loves for some awesome stamping bella images!

Another paper pieced Eleanor!

Another Paper Pieced Eleanor.  I told you that I just have to do that to her!!!  I love this design paper.  It has tons of summer sayings!  This is Eleanor from Kraftin Kimmie.

Some more catch up

This was SUCH a fun card to make!  I stamped her in versamark and clear embossed.  I realized after I started that it is WAY better to start on the embossed image and work my way out with my sponge dauber.  Going the other way made it darker in some spots.  The design paper says I love you in French and I thought that fit perfect with the image.  I used Jane Davenport Blow a Kiss by Stamping Bella

High Hopes BBQ

Hi All!

I love, love, love this high hopes dragon.  I find myself reaching for him all the time.  He is my go to little guy for guy cards.  His name is Flame Broilin!  Isn't that the cutest name!  As always I used my memento tuxedo black ink.  love, love this stuff.  It is my go to black ink!

I also used some clearsnaps smooches paint to paint the glitter on his apron and hat.  It adds just a little something extra.  I had some wooden buttons in my stash and wanted to add something to the edges.  I finished those off with some twine.

Fairy Tale Bug

Hi All,

Oh wow is it super busy!  School starts on Monday for me and textbooks are NO joke!  Plus I have been redoing my stamp room/office/study area and I have ikea boxes all over my house!  Hopefully it will look how I am picturing in my head!  I am realizing how much craft stuff I do have though!

I used fairy tale bug on my card today because school is definitely on my mind.  I wanted to color him different and used all kinds of colors on him.  Of course I used my copics.

I kept it really simple with some twine!

Fall Colored Chloe

Hi All,

Have you ever colored an image and absolutely LOVED how it turned out???  I did and look at her!  I love how the shading of her hair turned out!  I used Chloe by Elizabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps.  I stamped her using memento black and colored her with my copics.  I used Blossom Nestabilities and cut her out and with the image still in the nestie I sponged some memento green ink around the edges to give it a little depth.  I paper pierced around the edges (HUGE tip is to adhere ALL of the top layers together--not the base--and paper pierce through there and then use pop dots so you don't squash your pokes)

Have a great week!

Party Girls

Hi All,

I used the super cute Party Girls from Art Impressions.  Usually I am overwhelmed with larger images because I always have trouble getting nice, clean, crisp impressions.  Boy was this a no brainer!  A perfect impression the FIRST time!  Plus these girls are super fun to color!  I love using copics and this was a fun image.

Hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful week!

Loves Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

Hey All,

This week we have a fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge!










I did the middle!  I used some distress stickles for the middle of the flowers on her hat, I used twine with the button and I used the Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder to emboss the sentiment panel.

I used Eleanor from Kraftin Kimmie. The paper is unknown.  I had it in my collection and I loved the surfboards!  The sentiment is from Priscilla from Kraftin Kimmie.

Flame Broilin Tutorial

Hi All!

I have a FUN and EASY tutorial for you today!  I love this adorable High Hopes image called Flame Broilen.   I knew as soon as I saw this image I wanted to use foil.  As in aluminum foil for cooking!  I figured since it is so flexible it would probably hold a shape!

I started by stamping my image as I usually do.  If I am coloring with copics I ALWAYS use Memento Black.  Never, ever, ever smears!

 Here is my image colored.

Here are the copics I used.

 I have used foil before and I like to use heavy duty because the shape stays better. 

 I usually just rip a sheet off then I place in my embossing folder (you can use ANY embossing folder-I have not tried an impression plate so since that is a lighter impression I am not sure how that will work). 

Once it is embossed I gently trim the edges in my table top trimmer.  DO NOT push down very hard because you can flatten the shape right out!

I don't use my tape runner on the foil but I do use glue dots on the paper I am attaching it too.  I also used a brad this time to keep my place.  I used some of the cool new brads that the store carries!  They look like screws!

 Once everything is attached I completed the rest of my card!  Isn't this a cool effect and super awesome for the men!  A very cheap way to make your own patterned paper too cause a 50 foot roll was only a few dollars!
I hope you enjoyed and I can not wait to see what everyone makes!  If you use this tutorial definitely link in the comments I would love to see what you have done!
