Stamp and Create Mermaid Card

Happy Wednesday! As per usual, my week is flying by. Tomorrow is the start of October…..and I am starting to craft Halloween tags and cards. Hopefully I will be sharing them with you soon :)

Here is my most recent make: a Project life insert featuring a sweet mermaid.

I used Whimsy Stamps Bella for my card. After I finished coloring the image, I masked it off using some Eclipse paper and then airbrushed in the background.

Here is this week’s Stamp and Create news!

I {heart} Fall

Happy Friday afternoon! It is a glorious, warm day and I took full advantage of the sunshine because this is it folks! That cold weather will be here soon!

I am sharing a fun card that I made recently. It was quick and easy and fun!

The images are from Lawn Fawn and the circles were made with a Simon Says Stamp die. I used it twice to create two rows of circles.

It has been awhile since I entered my cards in any ongoing challenges (time, people, time) but I am entering this card in the following:

Have a great rest of the day my friends!

The beginning is always today

Happy Tuesday everyone! Getting to my post later than usual today. We went to see our youngest run in a race. He did super well and we were very proud of him. He gave us the victory sign as he ran past us to the finish line, with an enormous smile on his face :)

I am sharing a insert I made for my Project Life album. The ribbon and narrow strips of patterned paper keep it from being too plain.  The image I used is Magnolia’s Sneaky Tilda.

Paper-dolls

Happy Thursday my friends! I am excited to share (one of my) newest obsessions: Julie Nutting Paper dolls! I picked up my first couple over at Scrapbook Centrale and from there…..well…..let’s not go there for the moment!

When I was a wee girl, my Mum would draw out paper-dolls for me and then we would create different outfits for them. I still remember sitting at the kitchen table and coloring and cutting out the lovely dolls my Mum made :) So, I guess this re-kindled an old love of mine.

I created a couple of cards using some muted paper from my paper stash. A mix of older companies that somehow come together beautifully. Because these particular dolls are quite large, I paper cards to fit in standard business envelopes. I quite like the longer length.

I did a fair amount of fussy cutting but it was a relaxing process. I added extra layers here and there to create dimension and did a little bit of shading with my Copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of you evening. I have to run and pick up one of the boys from swimming class!

Stamp and Create

Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a brilliant start :)

Here is my card for Stamp and Create this week.

DSC_7951 copy

I used an image from CC DesignsSwiss Pixie Elf Lucy.  I have had this in my to-stamp basket for a long, long time now. I was happy to get it inked up and onto a card. The background behind the image was created with the Copic ABS (airbrush system) using various copic inks and then I sprayed Mr. Huey’s White over on top to soften up the look :)

Here is this week’s news from  Stamp and Create!

We have some new CC Designs in stock.
Here are a few of the new designs...

That is it for me! I have to run out to the elementary school’s curriculum night :)

Whiff of Joy Halloween Tags

Happy Friday! I am pretty relieved that the week-end is upon us. It has been a busy week and I need to rest! LOL! I do have another Mix ‘n Match video for you. I hope you saw and liked the one from yesterday!

If you have been following my blog for awhile, you probably have guessed that I love, love my Whiff of Joy products and I also love to create fun tags. These make great little items to tuck onto gifts or to just give to your kids as a little pick me up or to let them know that you love and appreciate them. You can never discount the enormity of these tiny gestures. The other day, I was absolutely floored to discover that my eldest actually has hung in his locker a little tag that I recently gave him. Tucked right at the back but where he sees it every time he opens his locker. That just warmed my heart :)

Here are my Halloween tags using a mish mash of products to create something unique and whimsical.

A get well card

Happy Thursday! With the kids back in school (meaning less noise, distraction) I was able to film a couple more videos :)

I have created a couple with the theme of mixing and matching products from different companies. It is a great way to create unique and personalized cards, tags, or gifts.

Here is the first one:
