I used papers from Lawn Fawn and Bella Blvd, inks are from Tsukineko, those index card dies are from Memory Box and the washi tape at the bottom is brand new from October Afternoon.

Incidentally, this is also our project of the month…don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter to get directions on how to make this card.

Christmas Spirit

Hello everyone,

Welcome to another fun Flower Soft blog hop! Here are the new products this week from Flower Soft – gorgeous Christmas spirit stamps! The one I used are the Silhouette Stamps and there are 2 more from the Wine Buff collection that are Christmas themed too.

The shiny background paper is from Momenta, the silhouette sentiment stickers are also from Flower Soft – so very convenient. And the best part about these silhouette stamps are that they fit into most Spellbinders and Memory Box dies I have.

Have a peek at how the rest of my talented team mates to see how they are using these brand new stamps. Your next stop on the hop should be Dawn’s blog. But in case you need the whole map .. here it is:

Anything goes at CMC Copic challenge

Hello peeps,

You know, the best kind of challenge that I like is the one where you can create ANYTHING! The moon and sky is your limit and this is the challenge this fortnight  at Color Me Creative Copic challenge – “Anything Goes”!

Oh yeah! I made a super duper long card – 4″ x 9″ business note card size! My 1st time working with this size for an anything goes themed challenge – kinda fun actually with that much space to work with and totally different kind of layout!

And to get a card base that size, I actually started with a 12″ x 12″ cardstock and cut out a 8″ x 9″ card base; Score the 8″ size at the halfway point (4″) and form your card base. I used some old Making Memories patterned paper and my Memory Box Die to create the floral wreath. Those pink flowers are actually fabric flowers I made using Glubers (they’re really extra large glue dots) – here is a video tutorial on how to make these flowers. And let’s not forget the cute little girl stamp – she is actually a Sylvia Zet Wee stamp that Tracey from Spesch Designer Stamps sent over for me to work on.

To enter in the challenge, you can use any image you want as long as they are colored with any alcohol markers. Your card must also be newly created.

Spesch Designer stamps is also the prize sponsor for the winner of this challenge And when you play along the entire month (just 2 cards), you are also entered into the monthly drawing for the shopping spree at Oozak. How can you beat two prize opportunities – head on over to be inspired and get to coloring.

Beauty in a snow globe

Good morning folks,

I am doing another Crafter’s Companion post today – why another one so quickly you might wonder. Well, I’m covering for Tracy, another Crafter’s Companion design team mate who is out on vacation having fun. I’m having fun in my craftroom too – wouldn’t you join me in welcoming the result of that fun.

Sometimes, it’s just nice to capture all that snow and beauty in a little snow globe. This timeless beauty I’m speaking off is the Art Kure Goldhill Shaftesbury stamp set, captured in a Memory Box snowglobe die colored with alcohol markers. The “snow” in the globe is from some Flower Soft sprinkles, the globe is embellished with Doodblebug twine.

*Tip: I would die cut the colored image 1st before adding the Flower Soft so you’re not crushing all the texture when it goes through the die cut machine.*

I matted the snow globe on some Echo Park patterned paper and adhered it to sage cardstock that has been scored horizontally twice on the top and bottom third. This “relax” sentiment is actually also from a Crafter’s Companion, Popcorn the Bear Father’s Day set. A clean and simple card that is hopefully serene and relaxing too.

Hope you are having a relaxing weekend.

Steph

I used chalk to color this little birdie. This is such a versatile stamp set that I have found myself reaching for it time and time again. That adorable floral circle die is new from Memory Box – I had to try it out and it cuts beautifully! Paper is from Crate Paper.
