Project Ninety-five

Hello Again!

Today's project was so simple, yet so much fun to do.

I love DCWV's papers. So this project is for DCWV Blog's
monthly stack-o-holic sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch we were to use


This was my take on it.

 
I added a little to the center
 
 
 
 
OK so all the papers are from DCWV. I used the Sunday Afternoon Stack.
The only pieces I cut out on my Cricut is the
 
Hearts
Cricut Cartridge Baby Steps
at 1.5 inches and welded a 1.25 heart to get just the outline
then I cut a 1 inch heart.
 
The Tag
Cricut Cartridge Ashlyn's Alphabet
cut at 3 inches high
 
Everything else I cut either by scissors or paper cutter.
All the paper and statement are all DCWV
 
 

Have a Magical Day!

Project Ninety-four

Welcome Back!

Today's Project is for Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. This week's challenge is Owl Themed.
I must be one of the few people who are just not that into owl's. I do have a few Aunt's who do like owl's, so I think I will put this aside for her next birthday.

 
OK so the Basics
All paper is from Stampin Up.
 
Basic
Base is 4.25 x 5.5 inches Elegant Eggplant
Next layer 4 x 5.25 inches Certainly Celery
  I then used Peachy Keen's Chinese Swirl Background Stamp with Stampin Up's Rich Razzelberry
  ink.
The last layer is 3.5 x 4.75 inches of Melon Mambo. I then embossed it with Cuttlebug's Happy
  Birthday folder.
 
Owl
Is cut from Cricut Cartridge Hoot N Holler
Cut at 2.5 inches
I embossed the top layer with Cuttlebug's Divine Swirl
I added some glossy accents to the eyes.
 
Sentiment
I used Craft Room Font

I then added purple stickels to the top.

Project Ninety-two


Hello Again!

I am going to explain why I am so excited for today's post.
I love stamping, I have used my pencils to color. A year or even longer I went and bought
some of these "Copic Markers". I have seen some incredible coloring with them.
I was doing a Mickey Mouse stamp, so I bought black, red, yellow. I thought
that was all too it. I colored my stamps but was never like that's so wonderful.
SO I went back to coloring with pencils, and then sort of stop stamping and stuck
to my Cricut.

I love Peachy Keen Stamps. I go to their blog often, OK, I check it on a daily basis. The design team
amazes me every stamp release. I used their "faces" stamps on my die cuts all the time. I would use the sentiment but never the actual stamps. Mine never looked like the DT ladies images. I drool over them. I have been a member of the Stamp of the Month club since ummmm, January. I have used the faces and sentiments, but never the stamps. Well almost 2 months ago, my husband asked what I wanted for my birthday. I told him to color like the Peachy Keen Ladies, as I call them. So he encouraged me to go to the Copic's website and try to learn more. So I went to the website, and boy did I learn. Like did you all know the numbers actually mean something! That you blend with them! YES!! So I ran to You Tube and started watching some basic lessons with Copic's. So for my birthday I ordered 21 markers. Hubby was so good about it, heck he was impressed you could refill them.

So today, image is for Peachy Keen Stamps' July Linky Party!
You must used only stamps from this month's release. So here goes, my first time showing my coloring that I can smile at. I love it!! I BLENDED!!

 
 
I know I only colored his scarf and hat but I love it!
 
Card Basics
All paper is DCWV.
Solid blue cut for 6 x 6 inches
Light blue pattern paper is 5.5 x 5.5 inches
Dark blue pattern is 5.25 x 5.25 inches
 
Snowflakes
are from Cricut Cartridges Very Merry Tags and Winter Lace
I cut them in different sizes.
I then ran them through my Xyron Sticker Maker
and covered them in ice glitter.
 
Snowman
I colored him using Copic Markers B12, B14 and B16.
I then added silver stickles to him. I added some white gel dots.
 
Sentiment
The shape is from Cricut Cartridge Baby Steps
