The Earth without ART is just EH

Hi Stampers,

I am trying to clean some items out and as I was going through the papercrafting magazines I came upon this ad for Stampin' Up!. 

DSCN0001

I tore it out, bought a white frame and it now sits in my crafting room. I know this has to be at least 4 years old? Anyone want to take a guess?

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #223-My Hero

#223

Hi Stampers,

This week's challenge is a sketch pad. I was making this sketch WAY to hard. I left the table and came back and VOILA!!! I stress myself out for no reason. LOL I can't wait to see what the other STARS came up with!!

I love the bright colors I used. Who doesn't like bright colors for Easter eggs? My Hero stamp set is perfect for the holidays. It is a very versatile set. Also, to make the eggs I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch and just cut the tail of the balloon off after I punched.

Recipe:

Stamp Set: My Hero

Ink: Melon Mambo

Paper: Emerald Envy, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Festive Birthday DSP

Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Framelits, paper trimmer, Melon Mambo ribbon, dimensionals, SNAIL, rhinestones, Balloon Bouquet Punch, glue dots

 

 

 

 

 


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #222-Black Magic

#222

Hi Stampers,

This week for our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge we have a product spotlight using Watercolor Pencils. If you have them, you know how great they color. They are smooth as silk. A few weeks back my upline, Dawn Olchefske, posted some cards on her blog utilizing the Black Magic Technique. This is such a cool technique and has been around for a long time but I have never tried it until now. All you do is stamp in White Craft Ink (let it dry naturally) or use your heat gun as it does take a little bit for it to dry on Basic Black or any other dark cardstock. Then you just color and highlight with the chalk marker (if you want). For those that like the ever popular adult coloring books this would be great for you to make your own!!!

I used the Melon Mambo watercolor pencil. Then I just cut freehand around the flowers.

You Light Up My Life

Hi Stampers,

I just love the embellishments that are in the Urban Underground Suite. I used to have brads like these when these were "in".  Perusing Pinterest I saw cards made like outlets and I thought I would give it a try PLUS I got to use one of the embellishments. I used the sentiment from the hostess set Pun Intended.

Paper: Whisper White

Accessories: 1-3/4" circle punch, slot punch (retired), 1/8" circle punch, Classic Label Punch, Urban Underground Embellishments, dimensionals, SNAIL, sponge

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #221-Cookie Cutter Easter

#221

Hi Stampers,

We are having a Home Sweet Home challenge. The chocolate looks great doesn't it? My eyes were on the peeps. Growing up, I got these suckers every year in my Easter basket and every year I complained I didn't like them!!! LOL Anyways, I guess they kind of reminded me of my childhood so that is where the inspiration came from. HOWEVER, I do not own the Basket Bunch in the Occasions catalog. (I know, shocker, right?) So I got creative and created my "own" peeps out of the Cookie Cutter punch. All you do is punch whatever color you want and trim the sides off with scissors. Easy, peasy!!! I dipped the end of my stylus in Basic Black ink for the eyes and nose. Doesn't get much easier than that!!!

I removed 2-1/4" from the top of the card.

Easter Peeps with Cool Treats

Hi Stampers,

I got some play time this past weekend and got to unleash my creativity. I just received the Cool Treats Suite in my order. I have seen so many cool cards with this set and couldn't wait to make some of my own. However, my mind is on Easter and this is what I came up with----Peeps from the "ice cream"!!!

You just stamp, cut out with the framelit and then cut again with the framelit moved up a little.

Time to Chill

Hi Stampers,

I made this card for one of the DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenges a while back but didn't get it done in time to post. It will be my last snowman card hopefully!!! Tomorrow it is supposed to be around 57!!!  So the last of the snow should be gone by tomorrow night.

My inspiration for this card came from decorations for winter in our cafeteria at work. I used the Hardwood stamp on the snowman and then stamped the outline of the snowman on it, then cut them out.
