Lots of super Fun sentiments in this set!! I chose this one, and used the Mini Misti to ink up each part of the stamp, LOVE how this works!! I might have to do a short video showing how easy and fun this little tool is.

Todays color challenge is all about the Red, Green and Turquoise colors. I wanted to do a Christmas card in these colors, as I LOVE how they always turn out.

For The Project Bin Maybe Christmas sentiment I used StampinUp! colored markers to color the deer, words, and holly.  I also airbrushed around the oval using copic marker BG15 These were cut out using spellbinders oval dies.

HO HO HO

Hello everyone,
Today's HO HO HO Merry Christmas card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon's Challenge & for The Project Bin Stamps. Awwww Christmas is my FAVORITE Holiday, and I absolutely LOVE decorating my house. I decorate every room in my home, even the bathrooms & Laundry room, I also have multiple trees that I decorate too, its Super FUN!!! This year I am hoping to be able to send out Christmas cards, as last year I did not!

 
 Ok so for todays card we were to use Buttons & Bows for the challenge, and I did that. I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Shimmer Satin in Brown & Red! LOVE this ribbon, its super easy to use and the look is absolutely GORGEOUS! Buttons are from my stash!
Bow- I used Really Reasonable Ribbon's Shimmer Satin in Brown for the Large bow, then  I created a smaller one using the Red Shimmer Satin. LOVE the look of this!!!

Stamp Sentiment is The Project Bins NEW stamp release and this one is called "Maybe Christmas" LOVE the sentiments in this set! I will be back with more of these soon!! I stamped my sentiment in Memento black ink , and then placed my holly stamp and inked it up using StampinUp! Wild Wasabi color ink. I am using my Mini Misti and it makes it nice to place your stamps and keep inking them if you need to get a darker look with your ink. Like my green I wanted deeper green, so I inked it up again. NICE!!  I then added some red using the Viva Pearl pens. I surely need to buy more of these, as I LOVE using them!

Santa is a Chipboard piece I got a few years back at the American Crafts warehouse sale they have here in Utah. I worked their for awhile, and even for the company in their warehouse, LOVE it!!  Anyways for Santa, I used NUVO Pure Sheer glitter from JustRite Papercraft & Flower Soft in Polar white to decorate up Santa.

Design Paper- DCWV Tis the Season stack. LOVE the designs in this large stack :)

Hope you enjoyed my post today, and will join us for Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Button & Bows" challenge!

oh Bountiful Season!

 
Hello everyone, Happy Wednesday!
Today I am sharing my card created for I Brake for Stamps using the Fall Half Sheet. LOVE this set, and all the stamps in it! 
 
 
I stamped my image in memento black ink and colored with copics. Next I layered with card stock and then added sewing to my image.  The sentiment is also from this beautiful Fall sheet and is also stamped in memento black ink, and then dusted with green and orange.
 
Embellishments are some random leaves I have had for years, and I hot glued them onto my image. I made a big bow using Really Reasonable Ribbons Shimmer Satin Tangerine(Another one of my favorites), and added more leaves!

I Believe , I Believe!

 Hello everyone!
What a super CUTE sentiment! When I saw this one arrive in the mail, I was super excited to get working with this set from The Project Bin! LOVE all their sentiments, if you haven't taken a peek at the stamps they carry, you might want to, as you will have a large wish list......hehehehehe

"Maybe Christmas Stamp Set" by The Project Bin Stamps
So 1st I got out my new Misti tool and cut a piece of white card stock. Next I placed my stamp from the Project Bin "Maybe Christmas Set", face down on the white card stock, and then closed misti and it grabbed the stamp(LOVE this tool). Next I colored the sentiment with different color markers from tim holtz distress markers. I colored 2 times to get my desired look. I then cut it out using JustRite Papercraft dies called "Hello Decorative Oval Frames".

For the design paper I used Dear Lizzy + American Crafts Christmas Carols & Cards dp. LOVE this design! I also used for the lace layering Martha Stewart punches.

JustRite Hearts & Frames die was used on the bottom of the fancy layers. Its the beautiful die cut piece you see on the blue and red design paper.
The Ribbons I used are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also added a button and some string I had in my stash. Lastly to embellish, I used some red gems.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today!
thank you for looking!
hugs to all,

Home


Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday to you all!
Hope you all are enjoying your summer, and getting to spend some time with your family and friends. Summertime is my favorite time of the year, as we can spend a lot of time outside enjoying the beautiful summer heat :) I love fall too, but I'm in no hurry for it to arrive....heheheehehehe

So today I have a card I created for The Project Bin Stamps(using the Fun is Good Stamp Set) & Really Reasonable Ribbon (using the Beautiful white satin, and white leave trim). I used the white Satin to create my bow, and then the white leave trim for the Glass flowers I made.
 I love the colors on this dp, its the I Do Collection from American Crafts, got this for SUPER CHEAP, like 2.00 for an entire package, may have been cheaper, since it was 40% off that.

For my Sentiment I did stamp in black, and then used a stampinUp! marker to color the "I'm Home" and the little House!

I love making my glass flowers. These turned out ok, I can now see the different colors from the glue pad, I need to find a new one, but my local Michaels, and Hobby Lobby do not carry them:( I will be ordering online. The flowers were created using JustRite Papercrafts Floral Trio One dies. and using the Glass Technique on them. I also added vintage beads to the centers of each flower.
I also ran the white leaves under and around my flowers. LOVE how they look!
I hope you enjoyed my post for today!
thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
hugs to all,
Cheryl
