New Technique!

This card reflects two new techniques for me-using Brusho's, and using Friskit. I really like how the sky turned out!

Dracula is the book I based this card on. I used Taylored Expression Valentine Grumplings stamps and dies for the bat and sentiment. The bat was colored with Copics. The other dies I used are Spellbinders branch, and Spellbinders Circle dies. The sky and the moon were colored with Brusho's-and boy, are they fun to work with! I used black and blue Brusho's over Friskit on watercolor paper, and orange & yellow Brusho's on watercolor paper for the moon.

That bat just cracks me up!

Kitty Bee Spotlight Post

Hello! Today is my spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and here is the card I made-

Here is a list of materials:
  1. Front: Studio Calico Wanderlust heart paper, Colorbok LOVE stickers.
  2. Inside: Paper-same heart paper as front, white Neenah cardstock, DCWV red cardstock.
  3. Image: Love Bug at Kitty Bee Designs (fussy cut). Colored with Copics.
  4. Dies: Elizabeth Craft Designs Lucy Label Pop Up Die, Spellbinders Labels Nine.
  5. Brads: Colorbok pink heart brads.
  6. Sentiments: Computer generated "You're my love bug", Cricut Artfully Sent collection "Happy Valentines Day".
This was actually pretty easy to put together, and all centered around the "Love" and "Love Bug" themes. The ECD die is pretty awesome! I added the Spellbinders dies so that I could have a place to leave a message.

SoSS O is for Old Challenge

At the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, the challenge is O is for Old. And I have wanted to make cards with this Unity Stamp Co. set for a long time, and here are two cards I made with it-

I have a big table that I craft on, and I use one of those big cardboard craft mats to cover it so I don't totally ruin the table. Well, that mat has seen better days and is "doming" from watercolors, ironing, water, etc. The blue card is on the downward side! I stamped the bags out of real paper bags, fussy cut, and adered them to the preprinted cards. I used both sentiments in the kit for the cards, die cut with My Favorite Things Banners, and used twine for the bows.
