Je T'aime: Layer Stamping with Hero Arts



Hi everyone and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I have a fun card to share today using the newly released Layering Croissant stamp set and coordinating dies.  Here's my card:






I used all Stampin Up products to create the card.  For the croissant, I used Peekaboo pink ink, Pumpkin Pie, and Tangerine Tango.  For the blueberries, I used Marina Mist and Island Indigo.  For the strawberries, I used Real Red and Rose Red ink and for the raspberries, I used Blushing Bride and Rose Red.  I used the new hearts embossing folder and ran that through my Big Shot with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I then adhered everything to Whisper White card base using dimensionals.  I also added lots of Glossy Accents to the fruit.  What do you think?


Well, that's it for me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.


Huge Hugs,


Christine

MFT and Watercoloring




















Hi everyone!!!  I have a super cute card to share with you today using the adorable Space Explorer stamp set from MFT and the Coordinating Dies.  I colored the cute astronaut, space ship, planets, and the moon with copic markers.  I then created my background with Stampin' Up! inks and watercolor paper.  I used some white acrylic paint to splatter on the background to look like stars.  If you are interested in any of the Stampin' Up proudcts, I used, feel free to visit my store HERE.  This technique was so much fun.  I also used my Wink of Stella glitter pen and some Glossy Accents to create some interest.  I used Stampin' Up white embossing powder on the sentiment and then cut the ends to give it a banner type look.  I also used some Stampin' Up silver thread behind the sentiment panel for some interest.  I popped everything up with Stampin' Up dimensionals.  What do you think? 


Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Until next time :)

Bonjour - Revamping my Blog!!!



Hi everyone!  Wow, it's been a long time, hasn't it?!?! :)  I have been busy crafting.  I started a Stampin' Up! blog, but have really been missing using other products so I decided to revamp this here old blog :)  I wanted to share this card with you today.  The stamps I used are from a brand new Oooh La La stamp set and matching dies from Hero Arts.  I used  Melon Mambo and basic black cardstock to create the card.  I ran the Melon Mambo cardstock through my Big Shot using Stampin' Up's large polka dot embossing folder.  The gold glitter paper is also from Stampin' Up.  I heat embossed the sentiment using Stampin' Up's white embossing powder.  I colored all the images with my copic markers (pinks: R81, 83, 85; blues: BG01, 05, 07).  The rhinestones are from Stampin' Up.  It's hard to see in the picture, but I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen all over the shirt and beret.  This card is super simple, but was so fun to make.  I hope you love it! :)  Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon! :)
