The Christmas Tree by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello everyone!!

Todays project is a tag for the holidays-

First I stamped the tree with dark moss chalk ink and then I painted it with H2o's watercolors.
Next, I spritzed the background with speckled egg spray stain.

Then I used a white acrylic marker to color in the snow on the tree to make it more white.
I stamped the candle 9 times and cut them out with a sharp detail scissors. I then painted thin glue and dipped them into clear rock candy glitter. I painted the flame with the h2o paints.
Next I used a bit of foam tape to put them on the tree. Then I used Liquid pearl and white flock to enhance the snow.
I used red glitter glue for the decorations on the tree. and made a strip of icicles for the top of the tag out of hot glue and glitter. I also used a stencil and texture paste for  falling snow on the background. Its very subtle. To finish the tag, I layered it onto a green cardstock.

And that is all! I hope you enjoyed!

CRAZY FRIENDS by Fran Chalmers

 Hello everyone!

Today I have made a simple postcard as I haven't been able to do much crafting due to illness.

First of all I smooshed a Distress Oxide background in Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber and Salty Ocean.

I added some interest to the background by using Blueprint Sketch through a stencil I had,

I also added some numbers and inked the edges in the same colour 

I stamped the main image in thick paper, and cut it out, leaving a white edge.  I decided not to colour the image as I thought it had more impact in black and white.

I added the sentiment, stamped onto card.

Stamps Used:

Five ladies 18537

If you have crazy 18569

Library return dates 20342

Other items used:

Distress Oxides in Blueprint Sketch, Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Salty Ocean

Versafine Clair ink in Nocturn

See you next time!

WTF? by ~*Arwen*~

 Hi peeps ❤

Welcome back on  this Blog!

Today, I want to share my newest tag :) 

And that's how I made it:

1.) I used watercolor paper and a large tag shape.

2.) Now I need a motif. Here I chose this cute alien. I'll add a saying later.



 3.) To make it pretty, I use a stencil and a self-mixed texture paste, which forms cracks after it dries.

4.) Now let the paste dry thoroughly before designing the background and coloring the image.

5.) Here you can clearly see the fine cracks. For coloring I use my handmade watercolor paints with lots of shimmer.

All stamps, I used:

- Alien hands up

- WTF?

other supplies:

- watercolor paper (Canson)

- texture paste

- watercolors

- Posca white pen

- Staz on

- Stencil

See ya soon *mwah*

Hello out there 😁

It's time to get those Christmas cards going!
On my You Tube channel, I do one Christmas card each month, so I've got a good start by now.

So, let's make a Christmas card!

You're gonna need a few stamps, some ink, something to color with, 
white card stock, Kraft card stock, a couple of sprays, and Stickles

First, stamp the newsprint onto Kraft card stock with brown ink.
I used Archival ink in Vintage Photo.

Now fling some sprays onto the stamped image.
I used Rustic Wilderness and Crooked Broomstick.
Once everything is dry, trim the stamped image and rough up the edge.


Stamp the branch onto white card stock, and color. I didn't want the earth ornament so I cut a tall red glitter circle to stick over it. ut this out (talk about FUSSY cutting πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚).

Add the Kraft panel to the cad front, and place the branch at the upper left corner. 

For the outside sentiment, I used a sentiment strip and roughed up the edges. 
Center it below the ornament branch.
Stamp the large sentiment inside the card.

Now grab your Stickles snd add some 'snow' on the branch.
I used Stickls Gel of this because it's thicker. 


Add a green sequin at each end of the sentiment strip on the card front.

Don't judge me by Cathy N

 Good morning. Cathy here with a fun card for you today.

I started out with stamping the Polaroid print on white cardstock. I then stamped Lady in tiara in the center of it.

I then colored it in with copic markers. I cut out and edged with black marker so you couldn't see my cut lines. I also added some gold paint pen to the tiara. 
After that I got some pink dot paper and layered it top and made a card from it. 

Lastly, I added a snarky sticker saying to the bottom of the polaroid. 


                                                                             Stamps Used:

                                                                           17543 Polaroid print 

                                                                          17673 Lady in tiara

No idea..... by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello everyone!

Today for my project is a quick card. I hope you enjoy it.

For this card I stamped three of the images on separate cardstock to be cut out. The feet I stamped right on the card itself. 
I needed the candy sucker smaller so I cut it down like you see here. Fussy cut the crazy coffee person and the couple bending over. Then I painted them all including the feet guy. 
Once that was done I gave a watercolor wash for the background being careful to go around the pre stamped image .I used two colors for the background.
Then I put foam tape behind the coffee guy and the couple to give them some dimension.
Found some sentiment stickers and added them. 
And that is it! super quick card.

Thanks for checking it out~

Coffee drinker    20003
