Kawaii Themed ATC swap

Hello and welcome back to my crafty space.  I haven't shared much this week as I have been a little under the weather, but doing better now.  I follow the Sweet Sentiment facebook group and they are hosting a Kawaii themed ATC swap, and of course I had to join in on the fun!    I'm so glad to be part of such a welcoming and supportive group and am looking forward to this (first for me) ATC swap.  I have never made an ATC and truthfully the small canvas scared me a bit.
For My project I used a Sizzix stamp/die set called Sushi Roll.  Since I had so many images to cut out I cheated and used my cut n scan, but think the dies would have been better.  I certainly hope you love my end results... 

Products used:  white card, pool colored dsp from my stash, pink/peach dsp from My Mind's Eye.  Versafine Onyx black ink, Copic markers, blue half backed pearls, Rhinestone heart by Jot,  Gina Marie stitched scalloped rectangles, Spectrum Noir sparkle pen, Glossy Accents, and Sizzix Sushi Roll stamp/die set.

Scrapper's Delights Thrifty Thursday

Hello and welcome back to my crafty space.  Today I am sharing a card for Scrapper's Delight for our Thrifty Thursday specials.   Each of the images were chosen by the Design Team, so take a moment and check out their pages for more inspiration.  I am featuring Crafty Honeys Bundle 1.  I chose the Crafty Honey with the glue gun which is one of 4 images in the bundle to make a fun Valentine's Day card for my husband!

For this card I started with a 6 inch square card which after finishing the card, I realized I put it together upside down.  Have you ever done that?  So my last step was to cut the panel off and mount it onto a new square card base.  Now that you've laughed me, I will proceed with my process.  I colored my image with copic markers and then added a little sparkle to the glue and her hair ribbon.  I used some designer papers to make matted rectangles to develop the design of the card.  I also die cut 3 hearts in coordinating solids to make a simple embellishement.  I was thankful that a sentiment was included in the bundle too as it pulled the card together nicely!

Products used:  white/plum/fuschia/pink/black card, Heidi Swapp Hello Beautiful dsp, copic markers, Spectrum Noir sparkle pen, white gel pen, Crafter's Companion Stitched Edge Heart dies, Doodle Bug black enamel dots, and Scrapper's Delights Crafty Honeys Bundle 1 set

Oldies But Goodies!

Hello and welcome back!  Today, I have an Oldie, but Goodie for Bugaboo Stamps where we celebrate some of our favorites!  I made a 5x7in CAS card that features water color done with Hero Hues reactive inks.  The circle stamps are colored with Copics and popped up with a little foam tape.  I added a few jewels for an added touch.   I think the card came together easily and leaves a nice impact!  
Just a gentle reminder.... and Love is the greatest of these..

Animen Mia: Thrifty Thursday Scrapper's Delights

Hello and welcome back to my crafty space.  Today I am sharing a card for Scrapper's Delight for our Thrifty Thursday specials.   Each of the images were chosen by the Design Team, so take a moment and check out their pages for more inspiration.  I am featuring Animen Mia which was super fun to color with that cute dress!  The images will be discounted so run and grab yours!

As part of my "Word" for 2020... CHANGE, I thought I'd do something a little different during my crafty time and made a mixed media background.  I used a full page treated with gesso so that I could break out the gelatos and spread them easily and add plenty of water!  I then added molding paste though a stencil to add texture.  My last step was to add Distress sprays to get the splatter effect.  After cutting my paper in fourths I got 4 very unique bacgrounds.  I decided on the one featured but added some black stars to it aftter the fact through a stencil using distress oxide ink.  Upon constructing the layers of my card, I decicded to add some rough circles using a miscelllaneous lid and more distress oxides.  I was pretty scared of this background at first because it looked messy, but I do think it came together really well at the end.  I'm very happy with it.  

Products used:  teal/white/black card stock,  The Paper Studio heart dsp, Tim Holts Small Talk sentiment, Gelatos, Distress Spays, Distress Oxide inks, Clear gesso, Golden light molding paste, Dylusions Small Circles Stencil, star stencil made with my cutting machine, and Scrapper's Delights Animen Mia
