Gift of Joy from TLC Designs

Today is NEW release day at TLC Designs.  

There are new stamps and papers for all your holiday creations.

I've used the Gift of Joy stamp set, fussy cutting each piece and coloring with Copic Markers.

Using the Watercolor Naturals Slimline Cardstock, I die cut with the middle die from the Scalloped Rectangle Garden Die Set.  This panel was then embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and then lightly inked.

Using the largest die from the Scalloped Rectangle Garden Die Set, I die cut navy cardstock and adhered the smaller panel on top.  The panel was then added to the card.

The elements were then added to the card and the angel was added with pop dots for dimension.

To see the full release stop by my instagram account and follow along for your chance to win a gift card to TLC Designs.

Grafix Mixed Media Journal

Hi everyone,  I'm participating in the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop, and this month we are partnering with Grafix.

Grafix has a lot of different products for all types of projects.  I received the Mixed Media Journal which has an assortment of different materials to work with.

The covers are chipboard so I used modeling paste, a stencil, paints and inks.  Once dried, I added an assortment of elements to the cover.  I wanted to experiment with the panels so I used a variety of different products on each panel.

I used spray inks on the Opaque Black Dura-Bright panel.

I used paints and a Gel Press on the Opaque White Dura-Bright panel, then stamped images on the panel once it dried.

I also received Double Tack Mounting Film which is amazing for adding papers to the clear panels.

Removing the film from one side of the mounting film, I adhere it to the pattern paper.   Removing the film from the opposite side, I adhered it to the  Clear Dura-Lar panel.

Then I used modeling paste and inks to decorate the clear panel.

This is a great mixed media journal to work with as it gives you a chance to create with an assortment of different panels.

Please stop by the Designer Crafts Connection blog to see what the designers have created this month with products from Grafix.

Holiday Sparkle

 Hi everyone, I have another Fairy Stamper project to share.  

 The FH Doe and Fawn were stamped on the card and the Doe was masked off before stamping FH Ania's Tree on the left side,  stamping it slightly off the card.   Then I used torn paper and blue ink to create the snow mounds.

The phrase is FH Holiday Sparkle which I die cut and added to the card.  FH Moon Dust completed the card.

Thanks for stopping by.


Happy Halloween with TLC Designs

Hi everyone, I'm on the TLC Designs blog today with some sweet Halloween cards to share.

I started by using the largest die in the Zinnia Slimline Dies to create the card bases.  For the second layer, I die cut the Creeping It Real Digital Papers with the Tiny Vine Oval Die.

The phrases were die cut with the Celebrate Frame Die.

I just love the images from the Creeping It Real Digital Stamp set.  Each was colored with Copic Markers, then fussy cut.  Aren't they sweet!!!!

The elements were then added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Thanks for stopping by.



May Your Day Be Special

 Hi everyone, I'm using some lovely stamps and stencils from Blank Page Muse.

Create the background with the cloud stencil and 2 shades of blue inks.
Mat the panel with blue cardstock, then stamp the phrase directly on the panel 

Stamp and fussy cut the butterfly, coloring it with Copic Markers.  Adhere the body to the card, letting the wings fly free.

Alicorn Happiness with TLC Designs and Trinity Stamps

I am participating in an Instagram blog hop today between TLC Designs and Trinity Stamps.

I've used TLC Design's Alicorn Happiness stamp set and the Zinnia Slimline Die and paired them with the Trinity Slimline Twist and Slide Die Set.  

The Trinity mechanism is easy to assemble and allows the images to move about the card.

I used the Zinnia Slimline Die as the card, die cutting over the edge to create a card, then die cutting a second panel to create the full shape of the card.

Adding the mechanism to the card base, I added foam tape to allow the mechanism to move freely.  

Next, I used both the largest and smallest dies in the Zinnia Slimline Die Set with the Magical Delight Slimline Paper Pad, adding them over the mechanism.  To the die cut holes, I added foam dots for additional height.

Finally I stamped and fussy cut 2 of the Alicorns and added them to the mechanism so they would fly around the sentiment.

Pull on the mechanism and watch them have fun!

Stop by instagram and see how the designers are showcasing TLC Designs and Trinity Stamps today.

Fairy Hugs Bird Nest

 Hi everyone, I have another Fairy Stamper project to share.  

I've created a fun card using FH Clovers, FH Bird Nest, and FH Chinese Lantern Stem.

Stamping the clovers first, I added the Chinese Lantern Stems next.  The Bird Nest was stamped in three times in blue, green and brown inks then fussy cut and reassembled for a realistic effect.  It was then die cut with TLC Designs Happy Dragonfly Circle.

Thanks for stopping by.


Happy Fall Y'all

 Hi everyone, Fall is in the air and I've created a sweet Fall card to share.

The sweet images are from Trinity Stamps.  After coloring them, I die cut them with the coordinating dies.  Aren't they sweet?

Halloween Treat Bags

 Hi everyone, it's a new month and the challenge on the Scor-Pal blog is to create anything you want, just be sure it includes more than one score.

Start with cardstock measuring: 6" x 11"
Score the long edge at: 2", 5", 7", 10"

Rotate and place the panel in the top right quadrant and score at 10 1/2"

Hold cardstock horizontally and cut along the vertical scored lines up to the score line.
Cut away the small rectangle.

Cut pattern paper to fit the edges of the panels and adhere with Scor-Tape.

Add Scor-Tape to the flap and assemble.
Once assembled, cut a 1" x 12" strip of cardstock to use as the handles.
Tear a strip of coordinating pattern paper and add around the top of the box.

I used images from TLC Designs - Creeping It Real Digital Stamp set, coloring the images with Copic Markers.  Once fussy cut, I added them to the treat bags atop the oval die from TLC Designs Oval Lilly Frame.

You can create this bags in any size - just cut cardstock to the size you need.
I think they'd been fun as Halloween decorations around the house, don't you?  

Thanks for stopping by.



Halloween Decor with Etchall

Hi everyone, it's time to start thinking about Halloween.  Are you ready?

Placing etchallⓇ dip 'n etch in 2 containers, I put the jars in the containers and let them sit for approximately 15 minutes.

Removing the jars, I poured the dip 'n etch liquid back in it's original container.  It's reusable so you can save it for future projects.

The jars were rinsed and dried.

Then I decorated each with ribbons and bows and Halloween elements to create a Halloween centerpiece.

Thanks for stopping by.



Thinking About You

Hi everyone, just know I'm thinking about you today.

Using Memory Box, I die cut the flower from white and green cardstock.  To fill in the flower pieces, I also die cut another layer from pattern paper.

Under the Sea with Oscar

 Hi everyone, I have another Fairy Stamper project to share.  

I created a background using the Gel Press and paints in shades of green and blue.  After pulling several prints, I found the one I liked the best for Oscar.

Once the panel was dry, I cut it to size and stamped Fairy Hugs Oscar in black ink slightly off the panel.  Oscar was one of my very first Fairy Hugs stamps and I love him.  Then I stamped Fairy Hugs Hanging Vines to simulate seeweed along the bottom.  Oscar looks like he's happily playing under the sea.

The panel was matted with white cardstock then added to a blue card.
