TRHD New Release - Witchy Wine Creations

Image
Thanks for stopping by my blog! It’s Day 3 of The Rabbit Hole Designs Release Week’s Inspiration Hop, and today we are featuring the new set Cocktail Witch! So be sure to stick around for the end of this post to see where you are hopping to next, and find out how you can participate in the Release Week Giveaway! 
With the Cocktail Witch stamp set I made two wickedly awesome projects: a slimline shaker card and a witch-y wine tag! This witch was so much fun to work with! You can color her so many different ways! I used my Copic Sketch alcohol markers to color these toxic-ly beautiful witches. 
Project 1 I know you have heard of a genie in a magical lamp, but have you heard of a witch in a wine bottle?! For my first project I made a shaker card out of a glass bottle shape. This bottle contains this wickedly adorable witch and her spooky city. First, I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut the glass bottle shape and bottle outline from the card front. I also used the Cricut machine to cut out …

Crafty Festival Christmas July 2020 Blog Hop

Image
Hey everybody! It's the 25th, so you know what that means, it's the Christmas Club blog hop! On the 25th of each month Crafty Festival hosts a holiday blog hop. I think this is nice because instead of forcing yourself to make a bunch of holiday cards in one or two months it spaces the work throughout the year. Check out the Crafty Festival Facebook page for more information on the Christmas Club blog hop and their other blog hops here.  Today I want to share this quick and easy holiday card I made with the Christmas Brief stamp set from Unity Stamp Co. This card is great for the holidays because it super easy to replicate and it's silly! This stamp set comes with two pairs of underwear and two sentiment sets. I re-stamped the two pairs of underwear with red and green ink to create the card background. To finish off the background, I used the ink splatter technique with these same inks. I created a coordinating envelope by using the same ink splatter technique on the envelope…

Kindred Stamps July Release - Pixie Dust

Image
Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's the last day of the Kindred Stamps July 2020 Release Week sneak peeks! Check out my sneak peek from earlier this week here. Today, I am sharing my projects featuring the Pixie Dust stamp set and the Pixie Map stamp set. These stamp sets will be available on Friday, July 24th at 8 AM PST. These sets inspired so many projects for me! I made one project with both of these stamp sets and four other projects with just the Pixie Dust stamp set. I colored all characters and images with Copic Sketch markers. The colors I used are listed at the end of this blog post. 
Project 1 My first project features the Pixie Map stamp set. This card was simple to make, but in the end, it turned into a beautiful scene. I used Distress Oxide inks to create the sky and sea backgrounds. I used a smooth layer of coverage with the Mermaid Lagoon ink to create the sea. For the sky, I used the MFT Cloud stencil and the Tumbled Glass ink. I adhered the boy, map, and stitched …

Kindred Stamps July 2020 Release - History Makers

Image
Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's Day 2 of the Kindred Stamps July 2020 Release Week! Today I am sharing my first set of sneak peeks for the week featuring the History Makers stamp set. This stamp set will be available on Friday, July 24th at 8 AM PST. I colored all of the characters with my Copic Sketch alcohol markers. The colors I used to illustrate these characters are listed at the end of this blog post. 
Project 1 For my first card I created a patriotic card background for these two iconic history makers. This card background was inspired by a 4th of July creation by Lady Michelle, check out her YouTube video here. I used the ink-smooching technique with Distress Inks to create the watercolor look for the stars and stripes. To mask off the horizontal stripes I used 1/2" thick purple tape. For the red stripes, I used Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, and Carved Pumpkin Distress inks. For the blue stars, I used the Tumbled Glass, and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks. Fina…

Jawsome Holidays!

Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful summer. Today I wanted to share my creation for Kindred Stamps Christmas in July Challenge host on the Kindred Stamps Fan Club Facebook page. For this challenge you must take a non-holiday stamp set, and make a winter holiday related project with it! Check out the detailed challenge rules at the end of this blog post. For this challenge, I used the newly released Chomp stamp set. I used my Copic Sketch markers to color the shark. The colors I used are listed at the bottom of the blog post. To create the card background, I heat embossed the Hero Arts Bold Prints Snowflakes background stamp with the Brutus Monroe Deep Blue Sea embossing powder. I also used Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink to create the ombre ocean ink blend. To create the sentiment strip I used a stitched wave border die on a piece of white cardstock.  I used the Mermaid Lagoon ink to also stamp the sentiment and to distress the edges of the white cardstock. To stamp just…

i-Crafter Snowflake Border Zip Gift Tag

Image
Hi everyone! Today I am sharing another Christmas in July creation. This Christmas tag is also being featured on the i-Crafter blog today, make sure to check it out here! First, I cut the Snowflake Border out of solid white cardstock and I adhered it to printed silver foiled cardstock. Next, I cut a basic tag outline out of the cardstock right along the snowflake border with the Zip Gift Tag die. Finally, to decorate the tag I adhered silver foiled snowflakes and the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from navy blue cardstock onto the tag. These dies are also included in the Snowflake Border die set.

KS Wacky Holiday for July - Mountain Climbing Day

Image
Happy Friday! Today I am sharing my creation with the new Mountain Climbing Day (Aug 1) available on the Kindred Stamps website today! This 3 x 4 stamp set features two adorable rock climbers and some rocking sentiments such as "You Rock!", "Rock On", and "I'd Climb Mountains for You." To create the rock wall I crambled up a piece of gray cardstock to create some additional texture. I wrapped twine around the front of the rock wall and adhered them to the backside with glue dots. I glued the color climbing holds to the front of the wall and distressed the edges with black onyx Distress Oxide ink. I matted the climbing wall onto a piece of gray cardstock.  I heat embossed the sentiment "You Rock!" with white embossing powder onto a strip of gray cardstock. I matted the sentiment strip with a deeper gray cardstock. Finally, I used double sided foam tape to adhere the rock climbers and the sentiment strip onto the front of the card.  Thanks for t…

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful 4th of July weekend! Today I wanted to share this patriotic card I made with the Seas the Day stamp set from Kindred Stamps. Make sure you check out the Kindred Stamps website here. First, I colored the sea horses with my Copic markers. The colors I used are listed below. To create the card background and envelope liner I used Distress Oxide inks and the Mermaid Scales stencil from Kindred Stamps. I used stitched nested dies from Stampin' Up for the sentiment. Finally, I used a gold shimmer brush on the red sea horse and a silver shimmer brush on the blue sea horse for some additional sparkles. I adhered the sea horses to the card with some adhesive foam tape. Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. For more creations with the Seas the Day stamp set check out my blog post here.

i-Crafter Light Up Santa Tunnel Card

Image
Hi everyone! Today I am sharing another holiday creation featuring the Tunnel Card, Santa Add-On set which is an add-on for the Tunnel Card Base set from i-Crafter. I just love all the blue winter tones throughout the card. Using Pearblossom Press Power Pack Unit I made this 3D project extra special by turning it into a light up card! With the Tunnel Card, Santa Add-On there are three background layers (circles) that line up perfectly into the tunnel base die. The front layer features the trees, the middle layer features the house, and the back layer features the reindeer and the sleigh. There are also several decorative elements in this set too including trees, a house, and the "Happy Holidays" sentiment die. 
To make the tunnel card I cut out four tunnel bases, swapping out the front, middle, and back scenic layers, and finally leaving the last one solid. I used the solid card base for the tunnel card background. I trimmed off the sides of the two inner layers, one at the sc…
