Foil Meets Sheena Douglas' New Collection: Crafters Companion

Happy weekend!!!  I have a fun and shiny card to share with you today using a mix of Crafters Companion Foil Kits and the new Sheena Douglas Day of the Dead: Butterfly Rose Stamp Set...

I love how beautiful and easy these foil designs are to transfer onto paper!  After trimming, adhering the design, and after adding the foil the rest of the card just fell into place.  I stamped the butterfly image twice and colored them both in with the same Spectrum Noir Markers: PP5, CR8, DR3, OR1, OR10, HB1, LG2, LG4.  The bottom butterfly was cut out in its entirety, while the second butterfly I only cut out the wings.  I layered them onto each other and over the foiled flowers.  The sentiment is from an AMuse Studio Stamp Set Called LabelMaker.  I finished the card off with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers in Clear.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!

Teacher Door Plaque with ADORNit Products

Hello!  It's Friday, and schools are ending all over the United States for some much needed Summer Vacation Time.  For me it just means more work, haha!  But I love every minute (ok minus the ones where they are arguing, but all of the other ones :) ).  And with the end of the year approaching I like to make the teachers we've had this past year a little something special.  I have always wanted to make a little sign for one of the teachers and this year I hopped to it as I had the perfect materials to work with from ADORNit.  Check it out...

To create this plaque I started by painting the plaque found in the Carolee's Follow Your Arrow Wood Word Art Play Kit red and then going over it with a star stencil and glitter embossing paste.  While this was drying I watercolored the center Teacher panel from the ADORNit Art Play Paintables: Wish On Stars Paper.  I then added some number and letter sticks and finished the top off with some matching ribbon.  

I can't wait for my kids to give these out!  Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

AMuse Release Day 3

Hi!  I am back with another peek at the awesomeness that is the new AMuse Release!  Don't forget there is free shipping for $30 and up being spent in the store until the 31st.  Now onto my project...

 hehehe! I just love funny animal puns and this one is too cute!  This scene was created with a mix of images and sentiment from the Hey Gull Friend Set and the Time to Party Set.  The Hey Gull Friend set is a fun mix of sentiments and these two little birds.

I've also used new paper tape that will be available after this release in yellow stripe and blue polka dot.  I've also popped this up on Petite Polka Dot in Papaya.  And I couldn't finish it without a little bling like the Twinkle Stickers - mini dots, multi.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Make sure you hope over to the AMuse Studio Blog for more inspiration and a giveaway!

AMuse Studio Release Day #2

It is Day #2 of release week for AMuse Studio and as you've probably already guessed this release is all about a beach/ocean theme.  Todays peek is focused on a set called Gnarly Birthday, and it's such a fun magical set to play with...

 He's so fun!  I wanted to go totally cartoon and whimsical with this guy so I used a mix of fun colors as well as stamped and colored him in on 6x 6 Glitter White Cardstock.  This cardstock is so smooth and soft, and I was happily surprised to find that my markers colored perfectly over top of it!  And it's mess free! Double yay!!!

And of course the sentiment is too fun!  I used a mix of dies on for the background including the Landscape Die, Postage Stamps Die set, and the matching Gnarly Birthday Dies.  The blue Twinkle Stickers Multi Set.

Don't forget to check out the AMuse Studio  Blog for more inspiration, peeks, and of course a giveaway that you don't want to miss!

Happy Crafting!

AMuse Studio Release Week Day 1

Hiya!  It is that wonderful time of the month where I get to share a few sneaks at new goodies that will be hitting the AMuse Studio store soon!  Some awesome things are happening this month with AMuse Studio and one of them being free shipping with every $30 spent! WOOT WOOT!  This awesome deal lasts until May31st, so you'll be able to get FREE SHIPPING on any of the new goodies you need to have your collection...

With that said I have to share my first sneak peek...

 Bam!  Isn't this awesome?!  I have been wanting to make a diagram card for a while, and as soon as I saw the Let's Be Mermaids Stamp Set I just knew it would be perfect for it!  You can find lots of tutorials on how to make a diagram card.  I used the matching Let's Be Mermaids Dies to save time and to get a perfect line around the images.  To create my openings I've used Pinking Circles 1A dies.  I colored all of my images in with various Spectrum Noir Markers and hung the fish and seahorse with Silver Elastic Cording.  The cardstocks I used include Solid Ocean, Solid Sugar, and Scallops Bermuda.  I also added some bling in the background with Twinkle Stickers Clear and Mermaid Glitter.

Now this has to have your interest peeked by what else this release has in store!  Make sure you head over to the AMuse Studio blog for more inspiration and a giveaway too!

Happy Crafting!
