Hello friends! Happy Weekend! Well we have 2 days of high school under our belt. My baby is a Freshman in high school now. You know, I have been a stay at home mom for 22 years now and there is almost nobody to stay at home with anymore! Might be time to find a big girl job?? I sure hope not! LOL Today I have another Crafter's Companion project to share with you. I am really loving all the wonderful products they sell. The Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers are really becoming a favorite. Now remember this is from the girl who had to purchase all the copic markers and then let them gather dust! LOL I find the Spectrum Noir much easier to blend and they are really juicy. I will give a more complete review in a few months after I have really used them. This card uses almost the same supplies as my card that I posted on Thursday but the colors are different. Here is my card for today.... This card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4". I stamped the sentiment using a Colorbox Chalk ink pad - Rouge. I colored the flower image using Spectrum Noir PP3, PP5, FS6, DR5, CG2. I also put stickles all over the flowers cause I got a little carried away! LOL Here is a close-up...... I used the same embossing folder as last card! Love those butterflies!! Thanks for stopping by today. I would love to hear what products you love from Crafter's Companion? Is there anything you would like me to show you?? Please comment!!

Hello Friends! Today I have a card to share with you using Crafter's Companion products. I used one of the 6x6 Die'sire Embossalicious folders - Ornate Butterflies, as the starting point for my card. I really love the size of the embossing folder because a square card is one of my favorites to make! What do you think? The base of the card is made from some gray cardstock. I cut the cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2" and folded it at 5 1/4". I used some 6x6 Shimmering Cardstock - Coastal Pearl for the main panel of the card. I embossed the paper and then I trimmed it down to 5 x 5". That way I could choose where I wanted to trim the panel. I stamped the sentiment and the flowers onto some Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth White cardstock. I colored the orchids using Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers - BT1, BT2, BT4, BGR1, DG2. I also added just a bit of stickles in the middle of the flowers to add some sparkle! Here is a close-up...... I finished off the card by adding the lace, ribbon and pearls. I really love this color combo and think the card turned out beautiful! Thanks for stopping by today. I have another Crafter's Companion card to share on Saturday so check back then!

Hello Friends! My favorite image in this month's Creative Cafe' Kit -Farm Fresh is from the Add-On set - Farm Fresh. The strawberries are just so cute! So I grabbed my markers and started coloring! I used the kraft cardstock for the base of this A2 sized card. I cut the green dotted paper (included in the paper pad) slightly smaller - 4 x 5 1/4". Then I cut a piece of the white cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5". I stamped the strawberry images in both corners, letting the images go off the page. I also stamped an extra image on a piece of white cardstock so I could cut it out. For the sentiment panel, I had a strip of the green dotted paper left and I just cut it to 4 x 2" and used a corner rounder on all 4 corners. The white panel is just a bit smaller and the corners are rounded, too!. Here is a close-up! I hope I have inspired you to get stamping and coloring with the August Creative Cafe' Kit! It's awesome!

Hello Friends! Today is Wednesday and that means it's time to share another Heartfelt Creation project. A few months ago, I was looking thru the clearance section of Hobby Lobby and I ran across a wooden photo tray. Now the tray was damaged but it was marked down really low. I knew that I could repaint the tray and turn it into something pretty! Here it is....... This was so fun to make! I started by painting the photo tray (which was black) with red acrylic paint. Then I added a layer of Crackle Medium. After that dried I painted it with an off-white paint. While the off-white paint was drying, it started to crackle! I really love the look!! I added all those lovely embellishments from the Sparkling Poinsettia Paper Collection and I think my $5 Photo Tray turned out fantastic!! Products Used: Sparkling Poinsettia Paper Collection Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set Large Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set Classic Leaf Cling Stamp Set Classic Leaf Die Sparkling Poinsettia Die Large Sparkling Poinsettia Die Memento Dye Ink Pad - Espresso Truffle Art Institute Glue - Dries Clear Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit Project Instructions: Other Products: Old Olive ink pad, Olive & Cherry Cardstock, Chipotle Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Craft Paint (Martha Stewart), Unbleached Titanium Acrylic Paint (Artists Loft), Weathered Wood Crackle Medium (Americana), paint brushes, red satin ribbon, gold seed beads, gold vintage rhinestones, scor-tape, hot glue gun, 4x6 photo sized Wooden Memory Tray (The Paper Studio) Watch this video https://youtu.be/1INCr0klRIQ to learn how to shape the Sparkling Poinsettia. Instructions: View a larger project image here. Finished size of project is 11" x 16". To begin, paint wooden tray with the Chipotle paint and allow to dry and then paint with the crackle medium. Be sure to follow the directions for the crackle medium that you use. After the crackle medium dries, paint with the Unbleached Titanium Acrylic Paint and allow that to dry completely so that it will crackle! While the tray is drying, you can begin making your Poinsettia flowers. Stamp the Sparkling Poinsettia stamp using Espresso Truffle ink pad onto cherry cardstock 6 times. Die cut with the matching die. Using olive ink pad stamp the leaf image from the Large Sparkling Poinsettia stamp set (6 times) and the largest leaf in the Classic Leaf Cling Stamp set (5 times) onto olive cardstock. Use the matching dies to... Continue reading

Hello Friends! I am so excited to share with you that as of August 1, 2015, I joined the Crafter's Companion International Inspiration Team! This will be so much fun! Right now, I am a bit overwhelmed by the vast array of products Crafter's Companion makes and sells. There are Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Aqua Markers, Blendable Pencils, Stamps, Embossing Folders, Dies, Digital products, papers and the Ultimate Tool! So I hope you will join me on this new adventure to find out all about all these products! I am super excited to get started! So for my first project, I kept it simple. Just some stamps, paper and markers......oops, I forgot about the dies, too! To create this card the first thing I did was to stamp the poppy images onto the red cardstock panel using Rhubarb Stalk Memento Ink all around the edges. This just gives the background alittle more dimension. Then I stamped - EZMount Stamp Set - Poppies and Daisies stamp set - onto the Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock using Espresso Truffle Memento Ink pad. I colored the poppies using the Spectrum Noir Markers - CR8, CR10, CR 11, CG2, DG4. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of the white cardstock and die cut it using the Die'Sire Essentials Scalloped Ovals dies. I popped the sentiment up using some 3d foam squares. Here is the inside of my card..... Here is a close up of the front! I had a great time creating this card! I hope you will check out all that Crafter's Companion has to offer.....there is alot! Thanks for stopping by today and I would love to know what you think of my new adventure with Crafter's Companion! Continue reading

Hello friends! It's finally gotten hot around here which is the weather we expect during summer here in Missouri. When it's hot in our house everyone is eating ice cream! I can't tell you how many gallons of ice cream we go thru in the summer but it's alot (especially when all the college girls are home!) I thought it would be cute to use a few of the Ice Cream images & papers from the July Creative Cafe' Kit -Too Much Sun to make a latch card. To create this latch card is super simple. Cut the cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" base and fold this at the 4 1/4" mark. Cut 3/4" off the front panel of the card base and fold the card. Place the folded card into your scoring tool and score every 1/4" at the cut point. I had 3 score lines on my card. These scored lines allow your "latch" to bend easily when opening and closing the card! I used a piece of orange cardstock punched from a hand-held punch and I glued the ice cream cone image onto it. I adhered this "latch" onto the scored panel using 3d foam squares. Like I said....this was super easy but looks so cute! Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies: Stamps: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit: "Too Much Sun" Paper: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit- Doodle Bug "Sun Kissed" paper pack and Bazzill Cardstock Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Copic Markers Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe'-Scrap Happy Glue, 3D Foam squares Embellishments: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit: Ribbon Tools: Scor-Pal Continue reading

Refold the card and line up the edge of the card fold to the left on the scoring tool and just outside the edge of the front of the card score 3 lines next to each other (every 1/4"). Do not fold on these lines - they are meant to allow the latch to flex. Cut piece from the paper collection to decorate the exposed latch area and decorate the inside of the card as shown with white cardstock and sentiment panel. Cut red patterned paper from collection to fit front panel. Cut card front panel from collection and adhere to red patterned paper. Adhere to card front and tie ribbon into bow as shown.

Hello Friends! Today I have a Heartfelt Creations project to share with you using the stamps - Blazing Poppy Fillers. These stamps are so beautiful and detailed. They have some super small details to color so I decided to try my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers out and they worked fantastic! I created a video to show you how I colored and created this card so scroll down to the bottom of this post for a link!

Sometimes you need a unique card for a unique person in your life! Today the Heartfelt Creations team is using some great products from Art Anthology in our projects, too! To create this "card", I used a small white party bag from Michael's. This would be a great card to give someone along with a gift card. Using embellishments that can be cut from the Blazing Poppy Collection paper, I decorated my bag card! For this poppy flower, I used the Salted Caramel Art Anthology Colorations Spray and some ink pads to get just the right color! Here are the supplies and instructions for making this bag card!

Hello friends! Today I have a cute party favor that I made using the supplies from the June Creative Cafe' Kit - Home of the Red, White & Blue! Using a cut file for my digital cutter, I created this Round Top Box. Now I know not everyone has a digital cutter so I found a PDF file (gotta love google) that you can use to print this out on your computer and then cut it out with scissors. You can print this directly onto the cardstock you are using or you can just print it out and use it as a pattern. Round Top Box PDF Here is my patriotic round top box........ After making the box out of the dotted navy paper, I cut some of the patterned paper to fit the sides and the front. I stamped the little girl image and colored her with my copic markers. Then I die cut the image using some classic circle and scalloped circle dies. The red and white cardstock stars were cut with my digital cutter. I added the sequins from the kit and stamped the sentiment. This is going to look so good on our picnic table at our annual 4th of July party this year! I am going to make a bunch of these and will put some poppers and trinkets in it for the kids! Hope you give this project a try! Supplies: Stamps: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit: "Let's Celebrate" Paper: The Rubber Cafe'-Creative Cafe' Kit- Doodlebug "Patriotic Picnic" and Bazzill Cardstock Ink: Espresso Truffle Memento Ink Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe'-Scrap Happy Glue, Scor-Tape Dies - Classic Circles LG, Jumbo Scalloped Circles Lg - Spellbinders SVG cut files - Round Top Box, 3d stars Continue reading

Hello friends! Today I have a beautiful Triple Easel Card to share with you using the newest collection, Blazing Poppy Collection, from Heartfelt Creations! I really love the beautiful papers, stamps and dies in this collection. I also had alot of questions about making a Triple Easel Card and how I shape flowers, so in this video I show you how to create this card and how I shaped the flowers, too! Scroll down to see my video! Here is my video tutorial...... Here are the written instructions and the supplies I used to make this project. I have created a list of supplies that include links to the Heartfelt Creations website so that you can see exactly what I used to create this card! Products Used: Blazing Poppy Paper Collection Blazing Poppy Die Blazing Poppy Petals Cling Stamp Set Delightful Daisy Die Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set Memento Dye Ink Pad - Espresso Truffle Art Institute Glue - Dries Clear Metal Glue Tip - Art Institute Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit Project Instructions: Other Products: Big Scalloped Circles Lg, Big Scalloped Circles Small, Classic Circles Sm & Lg (Spellbinders Paper Arts), Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, rust satin ribbon, 3d foam squares, Brown 12" x 12" cardstock, brown seed beads, white twine. Instructions: To create this Triple Easel Card, you need to cut the brown cardstock into three pieces - one 4 1/2" x 9", one 4" x 8" and one 3 1/2" x 7". Fold each in half. Using the 3 largest sets of scalloped circles dies in your set, place the die so that part of the die is off the folded edge. Run these through your die cutter to create a scalloped shape card. Now you will fold the top part of this little scalloped circle in half (this creates the easel for each card). Adhere the bottoms of the three scalloped circles together to form your card. Now you will need to die cut some more to decorate your card. I cut/embossed the three corresponding scalloped circles out of brown cardstock and three smaller circles out of patterned paper to mat onto my circles. (See sample.) Adhere your patterned paper and scalloped cardstock together and then using scor-tape adhere to the easels on your card. Now you get to have fun decorating your easel card.

Hello Friends! I hope it's not raining where you live. Right at the moment, the rain has stopped but not for long! Some weirdo tropical storm happened down around Texas and now it won't quit raining here in the midwest! By the end of the week it will have rained at least 5"! Oh boy.......We really needed the rain but it would be nice to have it gently over about 6 weeks or so! LOL But now it's time to talk about the reason why you stopped by my blog today! I have a fun project to share using The Rubber Cafe' Creative Cafe' Kit for June - Home of the Red, White and Blue! I created a fun tent topper card using the very cute Pug image included in the kit! Super cute, right? I sure think so! Everything on this card is included in the Creative Cafe' Kit except the copic markers, ink and dies I used! I really love all the wonderful things included in each month's kit. I have created other Tent Topper Cards before and even created a video showing you how I made one using supplies from a past kit. Here is that video........ If you don't want to watch the video, here are the written instructions! Cut base cardstock to 4 1/4 x 8 1/2". Score this at 4 1/4" and fold in half. This is the bottom of the card. Die cut or punch circle or square shapes to layer with the image. I used a white scalloped square, a light blue Captivating Square and Classic Squares of patterned paper and my stamped image. Line up your card front at 5 1/2" either on your Scor-Pal™ or your grid paper. Adhere your main image so that the top of the image will line up with 0" to create a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card. Stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock using Espresso Truffle Memento Ink and cut to make a banner. Use a bone folder to give the sentiment banner alittle dimension. Use a scalloped edge punch on a strip of white cardstock. Adhere to card bottom and adhere star sequins into place. Tie ribbon into place and add flag and sentiment to complete card. Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to stop by tomorrow to check out my Wednesday Heartfelt Creations Post! Here are the supplies used for this... Continue reading

When I am feeling stressed out, sitting down and coloring these images really helps me calm down and relax!
