Happy Birthday Mouse Tags

Another project?  Well yes!!  :) 
This one is a bit simpler than what I have been trying out lately!
Today's project is geared towards kids/children. 
I have a few birthday's coming up and I wanted to make my own tags for the special birthday recipient!   The tag is colorful and fun!!  Who wouldn't shake those stars around?!?! 

The base of the tag is a wood veneer tags.  I simply traced the tag onto patterned paper and trimmed accordingly.   I used mod podge to adhere the paper to the tag.  I didn't want the paper to be my focal point, so I covered it with a thin layer of Golden Gesso.  Once it was dried, I applied a small of Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel to the edges.  While that dried I colored, fussy cut and create my shaker photo frame.  

See told you it was much simpler than my other creations!  
Hope you are having a great weekend. 

See you soon!

Simple Roses

Aloha friends!  kel from Scraps and photoGRAFFS here today sharing with you a pretty and CAS card using the Live, Laugh, Love Roses clear stamp set!!

A Cameo in Sepia: Technique

Hello, Josette here for Tuesdays project.  I love the look of Cameos and the stamp by Sweet stamp is the perfect image for this technique.  Lets Take a look and I will share the technique highlights.

Full details on the technique will be showcased on my Blog later this week, so stay tuned.  My blog is: Little Bits, stop by in a few days and I will have a photo tutorial posted.  

But I will share the process here.  Using 140# cardstock, I brushed a mixture of Distress ink and water loosely onto the paper and dried.  Then I used a dark brown Archival ink to stamp the image.  After completely dry, I brushed in more of the distress ink to fill the shadows.  In this photo I used Gathered Twigs as it bleaches with purple and teal tones.  The next step was using a liner brush, painted household bleach onto the stamped image and let dry naturally.  All that was needed was a tag and a bow.  Perfect!!

Here is the close up of the Cameo, I love the various browns with a hint of color!

Thank you again for visiting, and be sure and stop by my blog for detailed information on this technique. 
Happy Crafting,

Thinking of You

Hello! This is Kim. I just received some fun products and had to put them to use. I started by making the background with the Tangrams stencil using Sweet Stamp' Ink Spots. I then used the Field Flower Silhouette's stamp set to stamp the floral image and die cut using a scallop die and popped it onto the card front using 3d tape. The sentiment was heat embossed using white embossing powder and adhered to the card.

Framed Garden Poppies

Hi everyone-
Have you missed me?  Well, I hope so, cause I have missed you all!
Things are still hectic around here, but they are going a lot smoother.
I've been staring at my stamps for weeks, so today I decided to actually make the time to do some crafting!  The idea for this card has been buzzing I n my head, since having a conversation with my friend Amanda!   So I had to get it out. 
All the items used can be found at SweetStamps and are linked back to the shop.
I stamped Italian Writing in Tuxedo black ink and sponged Antique Linen. 
Then I laid a thin layer of translucent embossing paste, using Kitchen Floor stencil. 
To accentuate Poppies Garden flowers; which were colored with Copics and fussy cut, I applied a black frame around it!

In the picture, the card looks a little warped but, once I put it between a few heavy books, it will straighten out!  

I hope you are all haveing a great weekend, see you soon. 
Don't forget to come back tomorrow for June's Anything But A Card Challenge.
