Cool Friend


Sharing a card I made for Unity Stamp Company's Show and Tell Facebook Group. The theme is red, white, and blue.

I stamped the background with an image from the April SMAK kit onto textured cardstock. The cup image is from the May KOTM, and I colored it with Stampin Up dye ink markers. For the blues I used Baja Breeze, Brocade Blue and Not Quite Navy, and for the reds I used Ruby Red and Real Red.

After it dried a bit and I layered it, I went over the slushy and heart with clear Wink of Stella. The sentiment is from the Susan Weckesser set Snow Way, and is punched out. I had to add some twine before putting all the layers down :)

Thank you so much for visiting!!

Darling Fairy


She's such a cutie I think!! This is Fairy Twila and is another free stamp I received from C.C. Designs.

She's colored with my Spectrum markers and die cut out with Sizzix dies. I wanted to fancy it up a bit, so I die cut a Spellbinders card maker die for the background. The flowers are made with a few SU! punches. The sentiment is from the Unicorn Dreams set that I used on yesterday's card and is punched out as well.

Thanks again for visiting!!

Reverse Stamping

I won some stamps from C.C. Designs last month and received them the other day. I just has to use Unicorn Dreams set first, they're just the cutest!! Reminds me of the cute My Little Ponies I had when I was little.

I wanted two unicorns, so the one on the right is reversed stamped. I used another photopolymer stamp that was larger and stamped it onto it with black Memento ink, then stamped it onto the paper. I haven't done this technique for quite some time. After coloring with my Spectrum markers, I did have to go over it with a fine tip black marker because it didn't leave a good impression. But it still looks fine.

The little heart quote above comes with this set, and the sentiment is from the Happy Sentiments set. I did add some Wink of Stella to them as well:

I added some fun rainbow like paper from SU!, and sponged the edges of the unicorn panel. I gave this card to a guy at work who has a little Sister. I thought she would like it. He said she loves glitter, so I think she'll love this! :)

Thanks so much for visiting today!!

Mini Canvas with Beads

I came across my Elizabeth Crafts Designs stickers the other day and was excited to use them on something. Another mini canvas that I covered with a light paper then painted it with a light green color.

While the paint was still a bit wet, I put down a dictionary background stamp(SU!) over it and pressed down. It left the impression without using ink. I like the subtle look of it.

These stickers are pretty cool. I have a few packages of different designs, but chose this pretty flower. When you peel them up, there is only an outline. So you can fill in or color it however you want. I put this sticker on double sided adhesive sheet, cut it out, then filled it in with micro beads and glitter.

I grabbed another SU! set and stamped the fancy sentiment with Stazon, adhered my beaded sticker, added some twine and pearls.

I rather like these mini mixed media pieces. Maybe eventually I will move onto larger ones :)
Thanks so much for visiting!

Animal Birthday

I've made a fun children's, or a kidadult card using the Quirky Animals Set One stamps from Your Next Stamp. This is the same set I used on yesterday's snail card. I just got this stamp set, and the animals are so fun! I have the parrot to color up yet!

I'm playing along with the YNS sketch #41 challenge:


I colored all the images with various Spectrum markers, then used a paper punch on them. I chose a bright, happy yellow and die cut some layering squares. The fun cake paper is from SU! and added a strip of ribbon on the bottom of it. The sentiment is from the same set, and is stamped right onto the card base.

Thank you for stopping by!!

Snail Mail

Playing along with the color challenge this week at Splitcoast Stampers. The colors given today are Tangerine Tango, Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight with the dessert option of 5 layers.

I accomplished the 5 layers using Cherry On Top designer paper, a die cut and stamped layer using a Unity SMAK stamp, two punched circles, one which I paper pierced. The snail image and sentiment is from Your Next Stamp called Quirky Animals Set One. I colored him with Spectrum Noir, SU! Blendabilities and Letraset alcohol markers.

The rectangle die is from Avery Elle, and punches from Stampin Up. The markers I used are Stampin Up Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities, Spectrum markers in BT2, BT4 and BT5, Letraset markers in Canary Y367. Also added matching Bermuda Bay bakers twine

Thank you for visiting!!

Mixed Media Canvas

Starting a new venture in my paper crafts, mini canvas'. I've started larger canvas' before, but just was never happy with how they were turning out. My friend Camille makes the sweetest little canvas', so I was inspired by her to make some myself.

Lots of different materials were used on this. I started with a piece of chipboard and covered it with sticky back canvas(need more of that stuff!). Painted on a few coats of acrylic, then sponged ink for the base.

The two flowers were stamped onto tissue paper, then colored with alcohol markers, cut out then glued down with modge podge. I also added some crumpled up tissue to the corners, and inked over them when dry.

The heart border was punched, then I used it as a stencil, and went over it with colored stencil paste. I also added a few tiny buttons and some hemp twine. The sentiment was also stamped onto tissue paper and glued down. It smeared a bit from the glue, it was stamped with dye ink, not permanent ink. But it's alright! Rubber stamps are from Unity.

I gave this to my friend at work, and she thought it was very sweet, and that makes me happy!

I like the smaller scale of the canvas, this one measures 4" square. I made another last night that is 3" square, and I'll share that one later today. Completely different from this one.

Thanks so much for visiting!!
