JessicaLynnOriginal Italian Greyhound Card #1

Hello, everyone! JessicaLynnOriginal is launching another stamp set! This one is the Italian Greyhound Stamp Set, which will launch May 6th. Pre-ordering begins today! Here is the set:

I'm excited to be a part of this team! So doing these cards is a real pleasure for me! Look at all the different stamps to this set! Awesome! Now let me share with you the first of my 3 cards. And be sure to come back to check out the other 2 cards that I will be sharing!
I found this awesome tutorial via Pinterest on making animal cards. It's called a starburst card. It looked unique enough for me to want to try it out, so I did. And it was so much easier than it looks! Here is the link to the tutorial.  I hope you try it out! 

For my card, I decided to use the stamp that has both the kitty and the greyhound. They totally look like buddies here! I used my markers to color them in. And then I added a sentiment from the stamp set up above the image.

I hope you enjoyed this card! Be sure to check out the other Design Team Members!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Whisker Graphics Mini-Album

Hello, fellow crafters! I'm so excited to share with you another project using product from Whisker Graphics!  This one was a labor of love, as I love making mini-albums of all sizes! I wanted to do something a little different...for me anyway...using twine. I happened to come upon a tutorial by Sarah Elliott on her YouTube channel. I did make a few minor adjustments to suit my need, but the basic album is from her tutorial. 

Front (Embellishment handmade by me)

For this project, I used from Whisker Graphics:

I hope you can stop in at the Whisker Graphics Blog! There, you'll be able to see how I put this together using product from WG. I hope it will inspire you to make your own album! All sizes are adjustable to what you want to make it!

Thanks for stopping by!

JessicaLynnOriginal Fishing on Phantom Lake Card #3

Hello, crafters! Yesterday I shared with you the first of 3 cards that showcase the new acrylic stamp set from JessicaLynnOriginalThe new stamp set is titled Fishing on Phantom LakeIt's release date is April 22nd, 2017. I had a lot of fun making this card! I wanted to do something a little different, hence, the fishing pole. I cut it out with my Silhouette. Btw, if you Pre-Order today you'll save $2.65 per set! This is a 4x6 Clear Rubber Stamp Set. Below I have linked a video from Jessica regarding this awesome set. Now here's my card:

I think this card is perfect for a dad or a grandfather who love to fish! Whether it is for birthday, Father's Day, or just thinking of you! I used blue paper to represent the water and green for the land.
Please be sure to check out the link to Jessica's video where she gives you a background as to how she came about making this stamp set.

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #119 - Embellish It!

Hello, crafty peeps! We've started another week of challenges over at Crafty Gals Corner! I sure hope you join us. Our wonderful sponsors this week are::

Prize: $15 Gift Certificate

Prize: 2 Digital Images

So this week, I used an adorable image: A Gift - Winnie Fruit Punch by Polkadoodles. Adorable!!

Because of her name having "Fruit Punch" in it, I kinda thought of a strawberry flavor. With that in mind, I went with variations of pink for the fruit. I cut out my tag and image with my Silhouette, and colored her with my Prismacolors. I have some new markers, but there are still some things I'd just rather color with my pencils. I embellished the tag with laces, a butterfly, some roses, pearls, pearl spray, and flowers. 

I normally do a little stenciling on  my tags, but didn't want to cover up the lovely paper I had discovered in my paper stash. So I chose just to embellish it.

I hope you drop into Crafty Gals and enter into the challenges. Every week there are so many amazing projects to choose from, but so very hard to pick the Top 3! 

Thank you for stopping in my blog! I really appreciate it!

Outlawz Color Challenge April 18th

Hello, crafters! We started a new COLOR CHALLENGE over at The Outlawz today! And I love the colors in the Tic Tac Toe photo inspiration! Here it is:
Photo Inspiration
For my project, I decided I'd do a Mixed Media canvas, using the top left to bottom right colors and embellishments: pink - lace; lavender - pearls; and green - bling. One of my very favorite things to do are Mixed Media and making Tags! Now for my project:
For my canvas, I began by spreading Gesso all over it so it would get a good primer base. At this point, I'm not sure if I'm going to paint directly on it, or use scrapbooking paper. In the end, I decided to use designer cardstock. As with any mixed media, you can start with one thing and totally end up a different way. While my paper doesn't show much, it still gave me a good base to go with. I used an acrylic stamp in various places on the canvas, then I covered it with rose stencils by Tim Holtz. I sprayed different colors of mists. For the clock, I wet embossed it using a copper color by Zing! 

The applique in the bottom right is made by KPKre8tions. The butterflies are made by Reneabouquets. These 2 ladies offer some really great product and are in my faves!!

I hope you come by and join in on our challenge this week! Thank you for stopping by!
