Tea Time Notebook

Hello fellow crafters! Today I have a little mid-inspiration for you from our challenge over at Kitty Bee Designs blog.  This challenge is all about color and there's still time  to join! Our sponsors for this challenge are the fabulous All Dressed Up and A Day for Daisies.

I've chosen All Dressed Up's "Summer Fayre" She's adorable all set up for her party, which for some reason just makes me think of tea party's. I haven't made a notebook in awhile and figured this image would be perfect for one.

So let's get started before time runs out! Below are the colors for this challenge, and while you don't have to incorporate all the colors for this challenge remember that you need to use atleast 2!

Materials used:

All Dressed Up - Summer Fayre
Simon Says Stamps - Sketch Ranunculus (background paper)
Zig Clean Color Real Brush
MFT Die-namics - Traditional tags
MFT Die-namics - Stitched sentiment strips
Washi tape
Wild Orchid Crafts - various flowers
We R Memory Keepers - cinch it wire
white feathers
metal charm
Distress Inks - Spiced marmalade, picked raspberry

I used zig clean color real brush to color this image and distress inks to stamp my flowers to create that patterned background paper.  I hope you like my project and that I was able to inspire you to create something. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Two or more patterned papers

Hello crafty friends! Today's challenge over at Star Stampz has us using two or more patterned papers. Unfortunately this will be my last post as a DT member over at Star Stampz.  I'm in the process of selling my home and a part of that process is to declutter. So I'll sadly be without my crafting things for probably several months!  I'll be missing some of my favorite things to use, like my big shot and copic markers! =(

Ok back to brighter things like this adorable pokemon image by Star Stampz "Gotta Catch 'Em All Pokemon". I decided to use this image and with my patterned papers create a scene.

Material used:

Star Stampz - Gotta Catch 'Em All Pokemon
My Favorite Things - Magical Dragons (front sentiment)
Simon Says Stamps - Birch Column
Spellbinders - Shapeabilities Art Deco Tags
Clearly Besotted - Fresh Grass Die
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - mowed lawn, salty ocean
Pretty Pink Posh - mini star confetti gold
Stickles - diamond

Copics used:

Hair - E35, YR24, YR21, Y06
Skin - E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Eyes - BG49
Hat & Ball - R24, R29, R89, C3, C0
Clothes - R89, R29, R25, B29, B24, B21, B99, B97, B95

I've used 4 patterned papers including this grass, although it's a little hard to see. I distress inked the bottom up to give it an ombre look.

Finally I used foam tape on the front piece of grass to give it some dimension and have it appear as if she was catching something hiding in the grass.

Kitty Cat Notebook

Hello fellow crafters! Today I've decided to do something a little different and make a notebook.  It's been awhile since I've made one and wanted to put something a little different up on my etsy shop besides cards!

This was the perfect opportunity to use this new stamp set a got by Mama Elephant "little cat agenda".  I used Hero Arts unicorn pigment ink to stamp them in and covered them with Nuvo glitter embossing powder shimmering pearl. To fill in the gaps I used the heart and little circles from Simon Says Stamps "Sketch Ranunculus". The hearts were covered in Wow! primary marshmallow embossing powder, and circles were stamped in Encore! ultimate metallic gold.

I wanted to add some interest to the back of the notebook so used the same three images on the front and lined them up in the back. I also added a touch of pink to their cheeks using prismacolor pencils.

Thanks for stopping by!

Show off your new stuff!

Hello Crafty peeps, today starts another new challenge over at Star Stampz for the new year!  For the first challenge of this new year, we want to see your new stuff so show it off!

Today for my make I'm using one of the new images over at the Star Stampz etsy shop "Fireflies". I've decided to go with a CAS card today making her my focal point.  Since she has so much detail in her background with all the fireflies floating around her I thought it might be easier to do this in a watercolor background.  I'm also using my brand new Nuvo embossing powder I got over the holidays and haven't had a chance to play with yet!

Materials used:

Star Stampz - Fireflies
Make it Crafty - Make a wish Asha (sentiment)
Zig clean color real brush
Nuvo - shimmering pearl embossing powder
Tulip - Diamond glitter paint
Pretty Pink Posh - mini star confetti
Assorted sequins

Thanks for stopping by!
