Dream with Just For Fun Rubber Stamps

Hi everyone, Just For Fun Rubber Stamps has disbanded the design team, but I still have projects to share.  

Using the Collaged Row Houses, I stamped them with brown ink.

Spritzing several colors of Fireworks! Shimmery Craft Sprays on a craft mat, I used a paint brush and a little water to paint the houses.

I also painted a wood word from my stash.

Using the left over ink on the craft mat, I dragged white cardstock across the mat.  To fill in the empty spaces, I spritzed more colors on the panel.

The house panel was matted with cardstock and added to the spritzed panel which was also matted with cardstock.  The panel was added to the card and the word was then adhered.

Proxxon Spooky Ghost

Hi everyone and spooky greeting.  Today I am sharing a new project created with Proxxon Tools just in time for Halloween.   This ghost was not only fun but also quick to make using a variety of Proxxon Tools.

I drew the ghost on a panel of plywood, then used the Proxxon Scroll Saw to cut the pattern.

Next, I used the Delta Sander to sand the edges before painting the ghost with white paint.

I inked the edges and added a face with brown ink.  Then I used the Bench Drill Press to create a hole into which I tied a string.

I couldn't decide if I liked hanging it from the tree or my front fence.

Happy Halloween with Etchall

Hi everyone, Halloween is just around the corner.  Are you ready?

I needed several new candy dishes for Halloween so I thought I'd use EtchallⓇ etching crème and EtchallⓇͬ etchall dip 'n etch to create some fun candy holders

I simply poured EtchallⓇͬ etchall dip 'n etch into the bowl and let it sit 15 minutes.  Since it is reusable, I simply poured it back into it's original container.

Once the bowl was etched, I rinsed and dried it, then painted it yellow.  When dry, I added the spider legs, some twine and candy.  Quick and simple.

My plate uses EtchallⓇ etching crème.

Using my Cricut, I die cut all the elements I wanted, then placed them about the plate.

I covered the plate with EtchallⓇ etching crème, letting it sit for about 15 minutes.  Since it is reusable,  I scraped the etching crème back into it's original container so it's available for my next project.

I washed and dried the plate, leaving the stickers in place.  Then I used gold gilding paste to cover the plate.

Then I removed all the stickers to reveal a wonderful effect.

Together or apart, I am sure the kids will love the effect, don't you?

Believe in Snowmen

Hi everyone, I've got a new post on the Clearscraps blog using the Snowman DIY Pallet Shape along with the Believe XL Script Wood Word.

The Snowman Pallet really comes alive when he is decorated.  I first painted him white and painted the hat black.  While waiting for it to dry, I worked on the wood word.  Believe is approximately 3" x 12" and fit perfect across my snowman.  I painted it with a fun chunky glitter paint.

Once dry, I adhered it to the center panel and added the buttons.

Next, I added a strip of chunky glitter paint across the hat and adhered a sprig of greenery to the corner.  Wiggly eyes and a button nose were also added.

I also added some chunky glitter paint along the bottom edge.

At approximately 21" tall, this snowman will take a prominent place in your winter decorating.

LaviniaWorld Chalenge #12

Hi everyone, it's time for the next challenge at Lavinia World Challenges.  Please check it out and join in the fun.

Today' I'm using Fairy Wish which is such a fun silhouette.  She was stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink

The panel was die cut, then lightly inked before being added to a large die cut.  I needed a little more sparkly so I added Nuvo Drops to the centers of the flowers.

Using papers on my craft desk, I created the card and wrapped it with ribbon before adding the stamped panel with foam adhesives.   Once Upon a Dream was also stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink and place across the top of the card.

Would love to see what you create for Challenge #12.  The winner of the challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to Lavinia World to shop for more goodies.   Remember there is a new challenge every other Thursday.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for stopping by.


Always Grateful Panels

Hi everyone, I'm on the Rinea blog with 2 Grateful Canvas panels

You can easily die cut several layers of Rinea Foiled Papers.  I used Marigold/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper with a Tutti Designs die.

Beautiful results even when die cutting 2 layers.

For this project, I was careful to save all the smaller die cut pieces so I could piece my design back together.

I started by adhering the main designs on 4" x 4" canvas panels.  Then I pieced the pumpkins together with the opposite color.

 Next, I die cut 2 layers of  Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper for the leaf sprays.

I fussy cut the leaves then adhered them to both panels.  Dew drops were added to the flower centers.  Finally, I die cut 2 birds from Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.

Lastly, I inked around the panel with brown ink.

Thanks for stopping by.



Happy Fall

Hi everyone I'm on the Dies R Us blog with another Fall card.

I stamped this lovely image with black ink and colored it with Copic Markers.

Using the woodgrain die, die cut a two toned pattern paper.

Use rectangle dies to die cut the image, ink it with brown ink, then mat it with brown cardstock.

Add the woodgrain panel to brown cardstock.  Add a 1" strip of brown cardstock across the panel and tie ribbon across the panel.  Add the panel to the card.  Place the stamped panel on the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Please stop by the Dies R Us Store to see all the dies that are available!

Autumn Tags with Clear Scraps

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog using 2 of the tags from the Chipboard Tag Album.  This album has 4 different shaped tags so I chose to use 2 for my tags.

Place the tags on pattern paper and trace around them.  Cut and adhere to the tags, inking them with brown ink.

For the November tag, cut the panel and ink with brown ink.  Mat with cardstock and center it on the tag.

Select assorted embellishments, mat each and add to the tag.  Add  pattern paper strip across the tag.  Stamp the phrase and add to the center of tag.

Repeat for the Autumn tag, but add a panel of burlap between the layers.  Wrap twine around the tag and add to the tag with foam adhesives.  Stamp and die cut the same phrase.  Add to the center of the tag.
