Ending February with a Sketch!



Today is the last Tuesday for my sketch at Skipping Stones Design.  I love this stamp set called:  Heartsong which includes three darling images including this bird and butterflies.

I created a little window for my bird by nesting Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares and Classic Squares die templates and of course I colored my little robin with my Copics :)

Here is this weeks sketch over at Skipping Stones Design:

Tuesday's Sketch with Skipping Stone Design



This month Tuesday's means sketch time at Skipping Stones Design.  This beautiful stamp set is one of their new releases called Garden Stamp Kiss and includes a few textured designs, a silhouette butterfly and this darling bird.

Did you notice that each of the little squares contains a stamped script design? I stamped those using Garden Stamp Kiss before I die cut and layered them on my card.

Skipping Stones Sketch 116 (today)


It really is fun to play along with sketches - I hope we have inspired you to try something new and get your crafty on.  Don't forget to link up here too!


{Q&A}
Looks like I forgot to link up the die template I used on this card. Thanks Patty for asking this question..
I used Spellbinders S4-315 Beaded Squares.  To make these little quilted looking squares I first stamped the script image and then positioned my die template over them and cut/embossed them with my Grand Calibur.  I ran pastel chalk over the embossed edges to give them a vintage feel.  Those cut out edges were perfect for me to hand-stitch a border too :)

Crafting with Children: Make an Easter Favor Basket


I created this little Easter basket favor box for Momenta's blog post.  It is one of those projects that can be made with your children - it is easy, fun and does not require a ton of supplies either!  I have all product details and instructions on how to assemble the little basket on this Momenta blog post:


Tomorrow I have a brand new card sketch for Skipping Stones Design so be sure to check back soon.  Happy Monday! My girls have the day off so we are going to have some fun.

Little Card for a Big Occasion


Today's JustRite Stampers reveal is particulary gorgeous - I say so because this set consists not only of this beautiful flower image but also frames and borders that compliment Spellbinders die templates!  Love that :)


The set consists of 7 Clear stamps and coordinate with Spellbinders S4-310 Labels Sixteen and E8-002 Classic Bracket Edgeabilities.  I created the shaped card using Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares.  I colored my flower, leaves and frame with Copic Markers and the blue paper is from Momenta.


Now there is a ton more to see with this set so here, for your viewing pleasure, are a few of the JustRite Designers inspirational projects:

{More of 'Cast All Your Cares'...}


This card was fun and quick to put together - I left it sentimentless so that I could use it for just about any occasion.  It's my "little card for a big occasion" card :)
Have a great Sunday!

Oceanside Sunsets and Dreams...


Today I have two JustRite stamps to share with you!  Both are new releases and both are fabulous!


&


The Oceanside Oval Medallion Labels consist of 12 cling stamps, which include both vintage inspired images and beautiful beachy sentiments.  The Chevron Stripe Background stamp measures 4 ½ x 5 ¾” 
and showcases the ultra trendy chevron design.  The die templates are Floral ovals and Grand Scalloped Rectangles from Spellbinders.

Creating stamps with beautiful images from the beach makes me long for the ocean *sigh*.  I love these sets - and I hope you do too :)  Don't forget to tune in tomorrow for yet another fun reveal!

JustRite Stampers Easter Blessings


JustRite stampers have a brand new release stamp set just in time for Easter.  The set is called


and consists of 7 clear stamps and coordinates with JustRite's JB-10025 Nested Oval Medallion die template.  

{How-To}

To create the bouquet I first stamped the image on white cardstock. Then I stamped it on scratch paper and cut around the edges. This was my mask.  I positioned the cut image over my stamped image and then stamped a second flower, particially overlapping the first flower.  Once I removed the mask the stamped images appear to overlap each other.  I stamped a third image on white cardstock and after coloring it in I trimmed around the edges and adhered it to the card with foam squares.

I used Spellbinders Tear Drop Circles, Fancy Tags One and M-Bossabilites on my card.  I colored my flowers with Copic markers :)


A few of the JustRite designers have designed beautiful projects using this set.  Here is your link list

Judy posted this question in the comments section for me.  I thought it might be easier to take a picture of the colors I used (totally a visual person I am!) Thanks for asking Judy - here's your answer:





Thank you so much for joining us today.  See you tomorrow for another new release reveal!

Sketch time with Skipping Stones Design


It's Tuesday February 14 - Valentines Day!  It's also sketch time at Skipping Stones Design.  This cute stamp is one of their new releases called Sassy Cats and includes two fun images of cats and witty sentiments to go along with them.

When I designed the sketch I thought of a round shaped card but it can be interpreted other ways too.  I love this paper from My Mind's Eye and of course my Spellbinders!.  I think between the stamp, sketch and paper this one came together pretty easily :)

Here is this weeks sketch over at Skipping Stones Design:

Passing the Cute Test with Momenta


Making fun shaped cards for little ones celebrating big birthdays is not only fun but rewarding too.  My girls LOVE this card - not sure if it is the adorable little monkey in the hot air balloon or the bright fun color combination but it passed the 5 & 7 year old Cute Test!  This is my card for today's Momenta Blog post titled:


I used Momenta's One Fine Day paper pad which comes with all the cardstock, images and glittered numbers to complete your card and a ton more!  I have a tutorial on the blog post on how I put this baby together!

I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday - it is very cold here in Colorado but I am enjoying the warm and toasty vibe of my local Starbucks before I head into my daughters school to help in Kindergarten!

Strawberry Favor Box



Hi everybody - for today's Spellbinders blog project I created this little Strawberry Favor box.  I used a combination of old and new die templates including Spellbinders brand new Cut-Fold-Tuck dies.  I have a tutorial on how I put this together on this Spellbinders Blog post:


We might have a major storm rolling into Denver so I am looking forward to an evening of warm comfort food,  fun shows on TV and maybe even a little crafty time!
See you soon with another surprise die template reveal!
