Candy treat bag

Happy New Year!!
Did you all make it through the holidays?  I know I put on a few pounds for sure lol.
Today I am showing another project using the January stamp set from Avocado Arts.  I decided to make a treat container, perfect for Valentine's Day.  I scored some scrap card stock, stamped my images onto them, then stapled it to a glassine bag filled with candy.
Take a little hop to see what these lovely ladies made as well!

You warm my heart

Hello there!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  We had a water leak in our house, so the days leading up to Christmas were spent with many contractors in our home.  The saddest part for me, was that my craft room was affected.  The walls are now fixed, but I am waiting on new carpet.  So in the mean time, I have to clear my entire room out (not fun).
But today, I have a fun and quick project to share with you.  I am using the newest stamp set from Avocado arts, and if you are a coffee lover like me, this is the set for you!  Head on over to these lovely ladies blogs to see what they have created for you as well today!!

Lawn Fawn & Faber-Castell


This week, Lawn Fawn is teaming up with Faber-Castell, to bring you some great projects using products from both companies.  Make sure to head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog, for a giveaway, and more inspiration, and information.
I received a blue mixed media package to work with.  It has a few pencils, gelato, a big brush and artist pen.  In my supplies, I had some FB watercolor pencils as well.  To create the blue background, I applied a little bit of water, to get my paper moist.  I then dipped my brush into water, and picked up color from the blue gelato.  I didn't want a dark color, so this took a little bit of time, making sure the blue stayed muted.  For the rainbow panel, I got a watercolor pencil, lightly made a line across the paper, and did this with red, orange, yellow, green, blue & purple.  Then, applied water to create a watercolor rainbow.  I stamped the sentiment from Sunny Skies, and die cut it out using a Spellbinders rectangle die template.

Materials Used:
Lawn Fawn Sunny Skies
Faber-Castell gelato & water color pencils
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L white foam squares

Hello there!
Today, I am sharing a fun banner I made to hang on my Christmas Tree.  I used Warm Woolen Mittens stamp set, Mistletoe Memories stamp set, Grand Banners cut file & Winter Sentiments cut file (that coordinate with Mistletoe Memories perfectly).  
  

The center banner, was created by cutting out the elements (banner topper, banner shield & the sentiment).  I then stamped the Christmas text stamp in a green ink onto the white card stock, stamped the line in red ink, and the sentiment in black ink.  The kraft card stock on the backside, has the Christmas text stamped in red.  The topper was adhered to the banner using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares (small).


The outside edge banner pieces were created, again by cutting out the banner shield & topper.  Stamping the Christmas text in red ink onto the white card stock.  Stamping the mittens, coloring them in with Copic Markers, attaching ribbon to the mittens, and adhering them to the banner piece using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares.

So Sweet

The next few days, I will get to show you never been seen before stamp sets from Lawn Fawn, for this months Inspiration Week.  Today, I made a cute little card using a new set called, Here's the Scoop.  I just did some basic stamping onto kraft card stock.  The image was colored in using Copic markers, and the hearts were filled with star dust stickles (man I love stickles!).  To finish off the card, I added some glittery May Arts trim.
Head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog, for more great Inspiration using this fun stamp set.


Winter Wishes

So far, my Christmas cards have been pretty traditional in color...red & green, and I'm perfectly okay with that.  Today, is no exception, I tried to add in some blue, it just was not working.  The stamps and sentiment are from Avocado Arts, I paper pieced the cute little Christmas trees, stamped the star at the top, then went over it with red stickles, just to sparkle it up a bit.  Lucky me, I have some great glittery May Arts ribbon, that matched perfect.  The sentiment and card didn't look right just stamped once, so I stamped it three times, which helped balance out the card a little bit better.
How are you doing on your Christmas cards?  I have so many more to do!
Check out these lovely ladies, to see what they made as well!
