Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Hello, everyone! Today started a Blog Hop over at the Coffee Loving Card Makers site! And I decided I'd do my best to get in as many times as possible. They have 67 sponsors for this challenge! Wowzers! This is gonna be fun!


And if you go to JessicaLynnOriginal, you'll find some awesome stamps, even a free one! So you can join in too!




Now here's my project. I decided to make a note pad. A coffee lover needs something to take notes on while sipping coffee, right? This was absolutely fun to make! And Jessica's free digital was such an inspirational one to color!



So there it is! And I do plan on using it! And it is refillable! Yay! 

Thanks for stopping by!

The Outlawz Color Challenge March 21st

Hello once again, crafty peeps! Today began a new week of Color Challenges over at The Outlawz! I hope you will join us! And this month we have the fabulous 

DigiStamps4Joy as our sponsor for March!
This months prize is $10 to spend in their store!
Now on to our photo inspiration this week, which was chosen by fellow DT member, Jacqui!
Gorgeous colors, aren't they? And for this challenge, you must chose at least 3 out of the 5 colors. Here is the project I did:
I decided to do an Easter/Spring Basket. I thought the colors would be perfect for it! So I found a tutorial on YouTube and went with that. 

I used my Prismacolors to color up my image. The butterflies you see are some that I did using heavy vellum from the Paper Temptress, and the flowers were a part of a prize I won on Holley's blog. Here is the tutorial on the butterflies: Here.

I hope you will come and be a part of the Color Challenge this week! We love seeing your work!

TTCRD Challenge March 21st

Guess what time it is?? It's time for another new challenge week over at Through the Craft Room Door!   And this week we have Little Miss Muffet sponsoring us. 

Here's a little bit about Little Miss Muffet stamps:
Welcome to... Little Miss Muffet Stamps!
A little bit of fun in a lot of different ways!
Hi everyone, I am Barbara Sproatmeyer, aka ForgottenScraps, and I am the owner of Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I love coloring and I love stamping! However, I think the best part about this is I get to share it with my own Little Miss Muffets who love to work by my side. Their personalities and adventures come out in the stamps that I draw, whether it is the day we roasted smores for the first time or when they discovered how high they could bounce on their hip-hop balls. They continue to be a source of amusement and inspiration. LOL
Little Miss Muffet Stamps began in January 2011 and I'd like to give a shout-out to my family and friends for their encouragement and support - thank you! I am also very fortunate to have a fabulous design team and I'm reminded of their talent every week when they show off their awesome creations. For oodles of inspiration, make sure to see what they've created over in the LMMS Gallery or LMMS Challenge blog for lots of creative ideas.
Little Miss Muffet Stamp products are created by myself and other talented artists including Bugaboo and Pollycraft. (For more fabulous images available in digital form, you can check out their sites.) I also stock a variety of other brands and products that offers you more of a selection and increases your buying experience, such as products from Raley's Confectionary, C.C. Designs, Make it Crafty and Whimsy Stamp.
Now here's my card: I used Polka Dot Pals Neomie Easter.  Isn't she adorable??

This was a new kind of card for me, but it was so very much fun! To see the supplies I used, be sure to check out the upcoming magazine! There are a lot of new and exciting techniques to be seen and learned, for sure! And come join us for this week's challenge: Through the Craft Room Door.

JessicaLynnOriginal Reveal Card #3

Hello, fellow stampers! Today is my 3rd and final Reveal for the Jessica Lynn Original Mason Jar set! And of the 3 that I made, this one is my favorite! I love doing tags...I'm sure I've mentioned that somewhere before...lol...and I love pink! Here's a picture of what's in the set: 
And here is my project:

Close Up of Tag
As you can see, I have sort of a Mixed Media thing going on here. I used my Silhouette to cut out the bottom and top layers of the tag. Then I used my Gelatos to color up the top layer, and then used a stencil to spread texture paste all over it. Before it had a chance to dry, I added glass glitter all over the top, pressed it in slightly (be careful! it's sharp), and then used my heat gun to dry it. I loved the effect of the glass glitter. I also used Glossy Accents on the buttons and the little garden home to give it some shine. The butterfly applique is from KPKre8tions and the pink background paper with the pink ribbon are from Paper Temptress
This adorable set of stamps can be shipped FREE if pre-ordered with the also NEW Hawaiian Vacation Brentwood SetBut hurry! Free shipping ends tonight! I adore this set of stamps. They are very well made, and the sizes of some of them are so cute! However, if you only want the Hawaiian set, it will be shipped free when pre-ordered, by itself. 

To learn more about the Hawaiian stamp set, follow this link to a video that Jessica has made:

Crafty Gals Corner #114 - Use Buttons!


Hello, fellow crafty peeps! It's a new week of Challenges over here at Crafty Gals Corner! I sure hope you will join us! But before I show you my project, here's a "word" from our sponsors! 😉

All Dressed Up
Prize: 2 Digital Images

Cute as a Button 

Prize: 3 Digital Images

To qualify for your entry, be sure to use Buttons on your project. It can be anything! For this challenge, I made a Wall Hanging. The image I used is  Sewing Susan by Cute as a Button. I love Cute as a Button images! They're...well...CUTE!
All the die cuts and the image were cut out using my Silhouette Portrait. That machine has been a lifesaver! The process was a matter of cutting out chipboard (any size will do...mine is 8x8), layering the top of it with designer print paper, layer pieces of paper over that if you want, coloring and cutting out my image, and embellishing it....with lots of buttons! Okay...maybe I over did it a bit, but buttons seemed perfect for this image!

Come join us for this fun challenge! And thanks for stopping by!

Tsunami Rose Designs Mixed Media Tags

Hello, fellow crafters! It's time once again to share with you another DT project I did for Tsunami Rose Designs! This time I make a Mixed Media Tag. TRD has such beautiful digital papers! I'm amazed by the quality of these designs! For this tag set, I used the Rose Noteworthy Digital Printables. Here are photos of my project:
Large Tag with Pocket Insert & Tags with Envelopes

Tag showing Pocket
Tags with Decorated Envelopes

Tags - Die Cuts are on 3D Foam Squares

Back of Tag

Supplies: Chipboard (4x6"), Digital Design Papers, Digital Die Cuts, Stencil, Texture Paste, Lace, Pearl Drop Trim, Tags, White Litty Bitty Bags, and Twine (Whisker Graphics).

I started off by cutting down a black chipboard to 4"x6", then layered it with one of the digital journal prints (#15 in the kit), from TRD. I then took page 3 of the add-ons and fussy cut out one of the roses to make a large "die cut". Once I adhered those 2 layers on, I took my Rose stencil (Prima) and spread my texture paste on it. I set that aside, and began creating my tags I got from Whisker Graphics. I took one of the add-ons (#13) and adhered the paper to the tags, adding a die cut with 3D Foam Squares on each one. My die cuts were all cut from the Ephemera Kit 14 page 13. I then used my hole punch and added twine (Whisker Graphics) through the holes. 

I decorated the 2 Litty Bitty Bags with a musical note on one and a sentiment on the other, also adding die cuts from the same Ephemera Kit. Once I was done with those and knew the stenciling was dried, I added the lace, pearl trim, and a pocket with a die cut onto the front of the card. You'll also see that I decorated the back, as I didn't want to leave it bare. 

I hope you enjoy this and visit Tsunami Rose Designs Etsy Store! Here are some other great links to follow TRD!

Outlawz Color Challenge March 14th

Howdy, crafty "pardners"! It's time for a new Color Challenge starting today, over at The Outlawz! I hope you will join us! For this week, I got to choose the choices of colors. And, since St. Patricks Day is this week, guess what? Add a clover! At least one...it can be more if you want.
Photo Inspiration

I wanted to do something a little different this week, so I decided to do an Accordion Fold Card. Here it is:
Front of Card

Inside of Card, with Tags in the Pockets

Now, again, I used my Silhouette Portrait to do all the cutting. This machine has been a great help to me, as I have arthritis in my hands, and they get very painful if I do too much cutting. So I'm totally loving my machine! Everything was done with the machine, except for the little photo/journal mounts. Those were done with my Big Shots. Then it was just a matter of decorating it. I did use chipboard for the front and the back of the card, because I wanted it to be very sturdy.

I hope you join us in this week's challenge! It can be anything...digital, mixed media, tags, cards, etc.....as long as you follow the color scheme! 

Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to come back! Almost every day I have something new to share with you. 😀

Jessica Lynn Original - Easter Stamp Sneak Peek!


Hello, all you wonderful crafters! It's so good to "see" you here again! Today, I want to share with you a sneak peek of the new Easter Stamp from JessicaLynnOriginal! I just LOVE this set! This is the 1st of 3 cards that I will be sharing with you. 
Here is the card.

Here are the birds at a closer view:
I can't decide if the birds or the little heart is my favorite...I had fun with all the pieces! But those birds...I have a special fondness for birds, both me and my hubby. I used my Silhouette to cut out all the pieces of this card, then I stamped the pieces. I actually did the coloring directly onto the designer cardstock!

This set will be released by JessicaLynnOriginals this Saturday, March 4th. But if you pre-order the stamp set today, you get free shipping! Here is the link to do that:

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #112

Hello, my fellow crafters! It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog! And this week we are to Use Ribbon. The sponsor(s) for this challenge are:

Scrap N Dipity

Prize: 3 Digital Images

Lacy Sunshine

Prize: 3 Digital Images

AMB Illustrations

Prize: TBA


So now I'd like to share with you my project for this week. With this image, Snow Drop by Lacy Sunshine, I decided to make a tag.

I started out, first of all, by coloring my image after cutting her out. I then used my Silhouette to cut out the tag shape and the snow drop die cuts.

The next thing I did was to use double-sided sticky tape to place Deco Foil on those strips, one from top to bottom, and one from side to side. I then used my stamp to do the "wording" in the background.

Next I got my stencil and texture paste out and stenciled a floral image along the side and sprinkled glass glitter on top of that and heat dried it. I glued ribbon along the bottom side of the tag and put a strand of pearl drops on top of that and pulled through the same ribbon in the hole at the top. I added a green rhinestone to cover the hole.

This card totally reminds me of Spring...which seems to have already come! But I don't mind at all, do you?

Please be sure to stop by and join our challenge this week! It's always so much fun and so many inspirational projects to see!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw
