Stampers By the Dozen May 2019 - Flowers!

Happy Saturday everyone! It's going to be a beautiful day here in sunny Tucson and it's time for another hop with the Stampers by the Dozen group!

Spring is in the air everywhere and this month we are celebrating by creating projects with flowers! While I'm not normally gravitated towards flowers in my projects, when I received the Everything is Rosy product medley, I knew this would be the perfect kit to use for my project!



This kit is the perfect array of products that all coordinate with each other!  I started with a Melon Mambo cardstock base and layered with Designer Series Paper featured in the package.  I stamped the sentiment in coordinating Night of Navy ink and the rest of the items are from the kit to include the rose gold edged frame for the sentiment and the Melon Mambo ribbon!  It's that simple to create with the kit!

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop May 2019 - Annual Catalog Sneak Peek!

Happy Thursday!  The weekend is almost here and it's time for another month with the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop!

The 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is on it's way and this month we are showcasing projects with new items from the catalog!  For my project, I wanted to create a masculine card using the new Sailing Home bundle!


I started off with a Soft Suede cardstock base and layered using the coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  I love how one side of this paper has blue tones while the other side has green tones.  Perfect for any masculine cards!

I used my Stamparatus to line up the knot stamps so they were stacked perfectly on top of each other and I used Crumb Cake ink to stamp those.  The stitched die is perfect for sentiments and cutting a second one that was cut with Night of Navy cardstock in half is an easy way to add a shadow!  

Isn't that anchor trinket adorable!?  I love the Sail Away trinkets and I can't to create some great projects with them!

Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop May 2019 - Masculine Projects!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  The weekly is halfway over and it's time for another month with the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop!

For my project this month, I wanted to use one of my favorite sets from the Annual Catalog, Sea of Textures bundle.  This bundle is available right now for 10% off until June 3rd!


I started my project off with a Tranquil Tide cardstock base and layered using the coordinating Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper.  Both of these items are retiring soon and I'm so sad to see them both leave!

I stamped my sentiment using Crumb Cake ink and the reef using Night of Navy ink.  The net was die cut using the coordinating dies and I used Tranquil Tide cardstock for that.  Isn't that octopus cute!  I stamped him in Night of Navy cardstock and he was so simple to cut out with the dies!

May 2019 Kre8tors Hop: Favorite Technique

Happy Mother's Day!  Today is a wonderful day to celebrate all the mom's in our lives!  While we are celebrating those lovely ladies in person, today we also are hopping along with the Kre8tors Blog Hop group!


This month's hop we are getting to showcase our favorite technique!  While I have a variety of techniques I like to do, I wanted to combine a few of my favorites including Smooshing, Flicking, and Water Spotting.  I decided to highlight the Happy Tails Bundle!


I started off with using a piece of Watercolor Paper that I cut with the Rectangle Shape Stitched Dies and got my Aqua Painter, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, and Coastal Cabana Stampin' Write Markers together along with a ziploc bag.

Next, using the markers, I colored directly onto the sandwich bag in a ombre effect from light to dark and then used the Aqua Painter to get the Watercolor Paper very saturated.


Flipping the bag over onto the wet paper, I smooshed it around and squished it until the color transferred from the bag to the paper.

I used my heat tool to dry the paper and ensure the colors were set so I could move to the next technique, Flicking.  Using my Stampin' Write marker, I used the brush end and flicked it against the inside of the cap to get a splatter look on the card.  Once I had the effect I wanted, I moved onto the last technique, Water Spotting.


Using my Aqua Painter I dropped big droplets of water onto the paper and again used my heat tool to speed up the spots to dry.  The finished part turned out great!  I stamped the dog onto a piece of Vellum and adhered to the Watercolor Paper.  I used the Braided Linen thread to add a ribbon and added my sentiment!

Make sure to continue on with our hop to see all the other great projects.  Next up is Jan Musselman!  Her blog can be found HERE or by clicking the next button below!
