June Craft Haul 2018

Hello Everyone! Just thought I would share a few things that I have picked up recently. I'm addicted to haul videos (makeup, clothing, stamping etc) and I really like making them also.

Watch the video here.


Thank you so much for watching! All products are listed below if you want to check them out. I'm hoping things will get back to normal.
For those that don't know I have a miniature Dachshund and she has damaged her back. We are on the road to recovery and she takes up a lot of my time. However, that does not mean that I will not be posting or uploading videos. It just means that I normally don't upload a video so late in the day and it was not suppose to be a haul video today. Thank you all for understanding.

Lawn Fawn Lovable Legends | Underwater Card

Hey everyone! I've been seeing so many card designs out there with an underwater theme. I thought I would give one a go with the Lawn Fawn Lovable Legends and Fintastic Friends.

Watch the how I made it here.




My first step was to create the background. I used a Hero arts stencil and sponged on two lighter blue Distress Inks on to Tim Holtz watercolor paper. This stencil is pretty intricate and took longer to get a good coverage with the blending tool. After I achieved the saturation that I wanted I spritz the piece with a Distress Sprayer. Then I set it aside to dry.

Next step is creating the critters for this card. I got out the two stamp sets that I was using for this and stamped them using the Travel Stamp Platform. For this application I used Versafine black onyx ink on Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I used the Versafine ink so that I could heat emboss them. You could also use black embossing powder but I find this way works the best for me.

After stamping and heat embossing the images (note I stamped and heat embossed the seaweed 3 times) I got out three colors of Distress ink to watercolor them in with. I smooshed the ink pads directly on to the glass media mat. Using a waterbrush I colored each sea creature and seaweed in. To color the brown of the ship I simply mixed the coral and green inks together to get a nice brown color.



After letting those dry, I cut them out with the coordinating dies and the big shot. Then I took two of the larger nesting rectangle dies and created a frame out of Surf Blue Simon Says Stamp cardstock. I smooshed the same two blue distress inks that I had used with the stencil earlier, onto the glass mat and spritz with water. I took the rectangle frame and smooshed that into the ink. Making sure to get a good coverage and mix of the both colors.

Then I set that aside to dry while I created the sentiment for this card, which comes from the Lovable Legends stamp set. I stamped it on to a piece of Neenah Dessert cardstock (a little crooked, oops) and then used my trimmer to straighten it trim it down.

I started to put this together by using a Zig glue pen to adhere the images to the stenciled background. I used the frame as a guideline so that all the images stayed in frame. Then, I remembered that I wanted to add some vellum to this scene. I used a pair of scissors to cut out a wave texture at the top. I adhered the sentiment to the lower part of the frame and then the vellum piece behind that. Then attached the frame piece to the scene and attached the entire thing to a card base and DONE!



Thank you so much for spending some time with me here. I hope you enjoyed the process. This is a little different of a card design that I have been doing but it is nice to mix it up a sometimes.

Using Stamping Supplies for Home Decor | DIY Gifts

Hello everyone! Today I have a bonus post for you. Now I haven't done a DIY home decor project in quite some time. Honestly I'm not sure why because I really enjoyed the process of making this.

When I went to the store I had no idea what I was going to do but I had it in my head that I was going to make something. DIY gifts are fun to give. I made this for my Mom for her birthday and the photo is a favorite picture of my sister and I.



So most of items that I bought for this I found at Craft Warehouse <-------- click  Unfortunately this craft store does not have a online store and is local to the Southern Washington/ Oregon area. But if you are ever visiting or close enough to make a stop I highly suggest it.




Craft Warehouse - Pallet Heart, White Frame, Burlap Flower, Metal Flower.

My Stash - Thin Wood Frame, Ink Road Bella Flora Stamp, Heart Die Cut




Craft Warehouse- Love You
More Vinyl Transfer, XL
Safety Pin, Tim Holtz Idea-
ology Curio Knobs.

My Stash - The Twinery 
Lilac Twine, Gesso Paint. 






Craft Warehouse - White Frame, Tim Holtz Idea - ology Curio Knob.                                                                                                                                               My Stash - Stamped Burlap, 2 Think Wood Frames, Ink Road Stamp Bella Flora.




Everything I bought at Craft Warehouse is listed below
Pallet Heart
White Frame
Burlap Gathered Flower
Metal Flower
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Curio Knobs
Love You More Vinyl Transfer
XL Safety Pin

I first layed out everything and just played with the elements that I bought I rearranged them and then started adding some items that I had in my stash.

Once I knew approximately of where I was going to put these items I used some white Gesso to paint certain spots on the heart pallet; like where the vinyl was going. I also used the gesso on a few of the thin wooden frames.



Elements in my stash and how I used them.

Stamped flowers - These are made from an Ink Road stamp, Bella Flora. I colored these with Copics while camping and for the #thedailymarker30day. I fussy cut the stamps out, distressed with an Antique Linen Distress Ink and then mod poged them. I attached the larger bunch to the metal flower by tracing the shape and cutting out the stamped image. I adhered that to the metal flower with mod podge.


Stamped Burlap - This is something that I was going to make a card for my mom out of but just never used it. I'm not sure of the stamp I used but I know I stamped it with Stazon ink and then added minimal color with a red and purple Copic marker.

The 3 thin Wooden frames - These I bought at a Scrapbook Expo my Mom and I went to around 8 years ago. I did use some but these 3 I've been hanging on to for some time.

Baker's Twine Bow - The Twinery Baker's Twine in Lilac, small bow on Safety Pin.

Heart Die Cut - I made specifically for this. It is cut using a Papertrey Ink heart stitch die. Then I used Gesso and Antique Linen Distress Ink to distress it. I added Tim Holtz Crackle Paint for even more texture.


And lots of hot glue!
