JAS Favorite Technique challenge!

The challenge at Just A Scrappin' this week is to use a favorite technique or embellishment. This one I just learned at my Copics class (Thanks Marti!) and have used it a lot! These were made in class as a tutorial.

I took a 4 inch square of white paper and centered a 3" grid of 1" squares lightly drawn with a pencil. I then colored 4 different colors into the 9 squares using my Copic markers. After all the squares are colored I took my Copic blender refill bottle and dripped out dots onto the grid. The smallest dots are added with a Q-Tip dipped in the Copic blender solution. I then stamped with some silhouette stamps, added the sentiments, and finished off the blue one with sequins in the flower centers.

Super easy, and it turns out great!

Kitty Bee Spotlight-August

Hello! This is Michelle, and here is my Design Team Spotlight from Kitty Bee Designs. I just had to try this Penny Slider card from this tutorial here at Die Cut Diva's-

Here is what it looks like when you tilt the card-

I laughed and laughed as I saw this little cow spinning!

I did learn that the bigger the round pop dot the slower the spin is, and the smaller the round pop dot the faster it goes. I had ONE round pop dot to play with! Here is a list of materials-
  1. Paper: white, yellow cardstock from stash, Reminisce Magic Stars dp.
  2. Two pennies, one round pop dot.
  3. Image: Kitty Bee Designs Kal-Bee Cow over Moon (contact Ruth for image!), colored with alcohol markers.
  4. Cricut: Artiste stamp and banner.

SoSS Challenge-U is for Ugly!

I've been recovering from a week in Reno, Nevada where we took one of our Chevelles to Hot August Nights. We over-served ourselves several times! So now I feel better to take on some challenges, like at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stamper's U is for Ugly Challenge!

Here is my ugly paper-which I have had for over 10 years-

At our now defunct Scrapbook Store, the owner would use papers for projects and what was leftover she would sell in bundles for ridiculously low prices. Well, you get what you get and I never found a use for this ugly paper, until now-

I just love snark! The paper is from my stash and I chose the brown ink and stripe to mimic bird crap. The image is from the internet, and the sentiment is from Creative Vision.

Thanks for looking!
