Not 2 Shabby Spring is in the Air

20200318_133017

Hello! Today I am featuring this adorable new stamp set from Not 2 Shabby called Spring is in the Air.

I just loved coloring these images and there is nothing sweeter than this chick and bunny.  I used my Copic markers to color these images and did a little ink blending for the background using Distress Oxide in Squeezed Lemonade.  For the sentiment I used Birch Press hello die and cut it out with some glitter foam from Queen & Co.

Jamie, over at the Not 2 Shabby shop, has just released her spring/summer collection and has it at a discounted price if you get the bundle.  Don’t forget to use coupon code CRAZYPAPERCHICK to save 10%.  Supplies are listed below.

Thank you to all that entered!

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I have the pleasure of participating in Spellbinders March Clubs Blog Hop.  I created a card using the March Card Kit of the Month, Feeling Hoppy.  Spellbinders kits are jammed packed with adorable goodies, and this month was no exception.  It is full of sweet Easter and spring themed items for your card making needs.  You can find their kits here.

Now, if you watch my 5 or 10 card videos each month showcasing the current Spellbinders card kit, you know that I have an obsession with ephemera.  The Spellbinders kits are full of glorious ephemera and I just can’t help myself, and typically make all my cards with the ephemera.  For today’s card I thought I would incorporate more of the stamp set (and a couple ephemera pieces – I just couldn’t help myself!).  To see how I created this card, you can check out the video below, but don’t forget to hop along to win!

Scrapping for Less | November 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit | A Vintage Christmas

75642444_10157947659178615_7319330562575958016_o

Hello!  I am guest designing this month for Scrapping for Less and I am happy to show you the November Flavor of the Month card kit, A Vintage Christmas.

Below are two pictures of two varieties of the kit you can choose from.  There is the Banana Split and Double Dip Sundae.

76936395_10157952746633615_4425657082028490752_o

Today I am showcasing the Banana Split kit.  I made 5 cards using many elements that came in the kit.  Although I just made 5 cards, the kit has plenty to make many more.

20191125_230725

The first card I made using these adorable bell stamps from Scrapping for Less.  So easy to color and they make a nice focal point on your card.

20191125_230822

I’m all about ephemera, so for my second card I had to use the ephemera pieces that came in the kit.  I used the largest button and accented it with some red twine from the kit.

20191126_144407

For my third card I used the stamp set from Sunny Studio.  I colored the house to coordinate with the colors on the pattern paper.

20191125_230815

On my fourth card I used the Noel die.  To get this die in your kit, you will need to order the banana split option.  I cut it out from gold mirror card stock from my stash to make it pop and paired it with the lovely pattern paper in the kit!  It is a really pretty die!

20191125_230828

Finally, my favorite card was made using this sweet little Santa stamp from Your Next Stamp.  This Santa was an awesome image to color.

Just Because Cards

*NEW* Jane Davenport Artomology Collection | Spellbinders

Hello!  Today I am featuring some Jane Davenport goodies from Spellbinders.  These products were so much fun to work with and very different than what I usually do.  Sometimes it is so nice to get out of your comfort zone and try something new!  You never know, it may turn into a new obsession.

The first card I made was with the GORGEOUS Tousled Face Die from the Artomology Collection.  I made the alcohol ink backgrounds a little bit ago, but thought this orange one would look great with the die cut out of black card stock.  That face detail is awesome!  I added a couple flowers from my stash to add some interest.

20190607_171308

The next card is using a die from the same collection called, Mums the Word.  I had another alcohol ink background that was not so bright so I grabbed some pearlescent pink card stock and die cut out the mum to pair with the pink, blue, and purple colors in the background.  The mum die has endless possibilities!

20190607_171258

Finally I had the Palette Pastel in Birthday Suit from the Making Faces Collection.  I LOVE make-up and this palette screamed at me as it has a good selection of skin tones and a pop of color to make up the faces.  I paired it with the I Came, I Saw, I Contoured pack of face prints and I LOVE the way it turned out.  The pack of faces measure 6″x9″ but as you can see, you can cut them down to fit an A2 size card.  Love the soft looks you can create with the palette.

Which one is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by!

***********************************************

Hello! Today I am featuring 5 cards from the Scrapping for Less May card kit.  Now if you follow me on YouTube and/or Instagram, you know I just had carpal tunnel release surgery on my right hand.  When I agreed to work with the Scrapping for Less kit at the beginning of this year, I didn’t know it would be at the same time of my surgery.  That being said instead of making my usual 10 cards, I had to settle for 5, and I made the 5 cards with one hand!  This was challenging and interesting to say the least, especially since I am right handed.  So, please forgive any crooked cut lines as that is what I had the most trouble with.  Otherwise I kept my cards fairly simple and really enjoyed working with the kit.

I do have an unboxing video posted HERE (will open in new window) if you want to check out what comes in the kit.  I will have my 5 cards 1 kit video posted soon (if not already by the time you read this) to my YouTube channel, so make sure you head on over there and subscribe so you don’t miss that video and future videos.

Below you will find pictures of the cards I created. Thank you to Scrapping for Less for letting me work with your kit this month.  It was a lot of fun and I just love the theme!  Hope you all enjoy my cards!

Don’t forget to participate in the blog hop.
