JessicaLynnOriginal Fishing on Phantom Lake Card #3

Hello, crafters! Yesterday I shared with you the first of 3 cards that showcase the new acrylic stamp set from JessicaLynnOriginalThe new stamp set is titled Fishing on Phantom LakeIt's release date is April 22nd, 2017. I had a lot of fun making this card! I wanted to do something a little different, hence, the fishing pole. I cut it out with my Silhouette. Btw, if you Pre-Order today you'll save $2.65 per set! This is a 4x6 Clear Rubber Stamp Set. Below I have linked a video from Jessica regarding this awesome set. Now here's my card:


I think this card is perfect for a dad or a grandfather who love to fish! Whether it is for birthday, Father's Day, or just thinking of you! I used blue paper to represent the water and green for the land.
Please be sure to check out the link to Jessica's video where she gives you a background as to how she came about making this stamp set.

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #119 - Embellish It!

Hello, crafty peeps! We've started another week of challenges over at Crafty Gals Corner! I sure hope you join us. Our wonderful sponsors this week are::

Prize: $15 Gift Certificate


Prize: 2 Digital Images

So this week, I used an adorable image: A Gift - Winnie Fruit Punch by Polkadoodles. Adorable!!

Because of her name having "Fruit Punch" in it, I kinda thought of a strawberry flavor. With that in mind, I went with variations of pink for the fruit. I cut out my tag and image with my Silhouette, and colored her with my Prismacolors. I have some new markers, but there are still some things I'd just rather color with my pencils. I embellished the tag with laces, a butterfly, some roses, pearls, pearl spray, and flowers. 

I normally do a little stenciling on  my tags, but didn't want to cover up the lovely paper I had discovered in my paper stash. So I chose just to embellish it.

I hope you drop into Crafty Gals and enter into the challenges. Every week there are so many amazing projects to choose from, but so very hard to pick the Top 3! 

Thank you for stopping in my blog! I really appreciate it!

Outlawz Color Challenge April 18th

Hello, crafters! We started a new COLOR CHALLENGE over at The Outlawz today! And I love the colors in the Tic Tac Toe photo inspiration! Here it is:
Photo Inspiration
For my project, I decided I'd do a Mixed Media canvas, using the top left to bottom right colors and embellishments: pink - lace; lavender - pearls; and green - bling. One of my very favorite things to do are Mixed Media and making Tags! Now for my project:
For my canvas, I began by spreading Gesso all over it so it would get a good primer base. At this point, I'm not sure if I'm going to paint directly on it, or use scrapbooking paper. In the end, I decided to use designer cardstock. As with any mixed media, you can start with one thing and totally end up a different way. While my paper doesn't show much, it still gave me a good base to go with. I used an acrylic stamp in various places on the canvas, then I covered it with rose stencils by Tim Holtz. I sprayed different colors of mists. For the clock, I wet embossed it using a copper color by Zing! 

The applique in the bottom right is made by KPKre8tions. The butterflies are made by Reneabouquets. These 2 ladies offer some really great product and are in my faves!!

I hope you come by and join in on our challenge this week! Thank you for stopping by!

JessicaLynnMould Fishing on Phantom Lake Card #2

Hello, crafters! Yesterday I shared with you the first of 3 cards that showcase the new acrylic stamp set from JessicaLynnOriginal. The new stamp set is titled Fishing on Phantom LakeIt's release date is April 22nd, 2017. As I said before, I've not done fish cards before, so this was an "out of my comfort zone" thing for me. But new things are what we crafters do! If you Pre-Order today you'll save $2.65 per set! This is a 4x6 Clear Rubber Stamp Set. Below I have linked a video from Jessica regarding this awesome set. But now...on to my card!


I think this card is perfect for a dad or a grandfather who love to fish! Whether it is for birthday, Father's Day, or just thinking of you! This card was pretty simple to make, as I added layers to give it more of a dimensional look. Then the twine represents the fishing string (yes, I know fishing string isn't that thick...*wink!*)

As promised, here is the link to Jessica's video where she gives you a background as to how she came about making this stamp set. 

Please be sure to check out my fellow teammies blogs! They will be sharing their projects, too!

JessicaLynnOriginal New Stamp Launch!

Hello, crafty peeps! Today I want to share with you the first of 3 cards showcasing the new stamp set titled Fishing on Phantom Lake from JessicaLynnOriginalIt's launch date is April 22nd, 2017. Now, I have to admit, I've not done fish cards before, so this was an "out of my comfort zone" thing for me. A challenge...but hey...what crafter doesn't enjoy a challenge, am I right?? And guess what is great if you Pre-Order today? You'll save $2.65 per set! This is a 4x6 Clear Rubber Stamp Set. Below I have linked a video from Jessica regarding this awesome set. But now...on to my card!

I really really enjoyed making this! I used my color markers to color the image, and then stamped various bubbles around. I tried to get the background as a "watery" effect (I'm still learning my markers). At the time I colored my fish you see up there, I had no idea it was a Blue Gill. Lol! But for some reason I decided to make him blue. Wow, talk about coincidence! 

Now here is the link to Jessica's video where she gives you a background as to how she came about making this stamp set. 

Please be sure to check out my fellow teammies blogs! They will be sharing their projects, too!

Sweet Escapes Tag

Hi once again, crafters! I discovered another digital company a short time ago. And I have to tell you...I love them! The company is Sweet Escapes. Believe me, when I went in to shop, it was hard to choose which image I would try first! But in the end, I chose the image called Kate.  (Just a side note here: I am not a Design Team Member with Sweet Escapes. This is just something I totally love and want to share.)

For her, I decided to make a tag. Here she is:

I printed off the digital paper and cut her out with my Silhouette. I used my Prismacolors to color her in. I decided to leave her hair black and white (although I did use my Prismacolors for the black and white colors anyway, to give it more depth). The butterfly you see is from Reneabouquets. I decorated my tag with lace, pearl trims, and a flower. 

I hope you enjoyed her! And thank you so much for stopping by!
