Creativity

Happy Thursday! I'm here today to share this card with you
With the Tim Holtz Water Color Kit I had everything I needed to make this card.

The kit features an assortment of Distress Watercolor crayons and several tools this kit has everything you need to learn the techniques needed to create watercolor art Includes distress crayons (festive berries, fossilized amber, chipped sapphire, rusty hinge, peeled paint, seedless preserves), paintbrush, mini archival ink pad (black soot), clear stamp set, acrylic block, watercolor cardstock, instruction booklet.
 
It was super fun to do!!! I water colored the paper with the distress crayons and then tore pieces from each color and glued  it down on the card front and then stamped the Butterfly on top. I stamped the sentiment and then using a paint brush I flicked different colors all over the paper.
I added Limoncello Nuvo crystal drops to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting :)
Hugs,
Michele

Take it easy

Amy here and it's time for my weekly 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card creation. My last box of happy mail included the new Lumberjack Guys stamp set from CC Designs along with the Cabin Fever paper pack. I knew the two would be a match made in outdoorsy heaven and couldn't wait to use them on a card together. Simple Stories is one of my favorite paper companies because I love all the sheets they have that are divided into multiple little scenes and sayings. Once you cut them apart they are perfect for cards and that is just what I did to get this mountain background. The 'trail head' sign and sentiment are both stickers from the sticker sheet that was included in the pack as well. All that was left to do was pick a lumberjack to live in this high mountain scene and I finally landed on this cutie because I liked that he was sitting on a stump which added a bit more interest. He really pulls the whole thing together with his easy, laid back attitude, don'tcha think?    

Alrighty, well the July Challenge is in full swing and with all the fabulous new stamps and supplies that Kelly has been bringing into the store that $20 gift certificate that is up for grabs could really help to fill a shopping cart! So get crafty and join the fun!

Easily A'Moose'd !

Happy Hello again! It's Mindy from Paper Creations by Mindy and I have a fun summer card to share today! You can view my blog for a complete description of the card process.

I fell in love with this Moose set from Sugar Pea Designs! They are darling images and awesome sentiments to match. 

I created my background with Faded Jean Distress Oxide for my clouds and Forest Moss Distress Ink and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide for the trees and hill.


I use the Misti Tool to stamp out my 3 images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink which is a copic friendly ink. Once everything is stamped I’m going to color them with my copic markers. I’m coloring from darkest to lightest and then will go back over my images again in the same order because I like to add a lot of depth to my image. 

 I used the Sugar Pea Designs Tree Scape die to cut my hill and tree and adhering it down with my new favorite adhesive which is Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive . I love the small tip on these and it has a great hold. I’ve had problems in the past with small tips clogging on me but this was hardly ever does and it flows out so nicely. And if you happen to have excess seep through .. it dries clear and you can’t even tell! 


Just for a finishing touch, I’m adding some Ivory Shell Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Sending smiles across the miles

Amy here with my weekly 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card creation. For today's card it was time I played with the new Mega Mini Go Time set from The Greeting Farm. I couldn't wait to get my hands on these cute stamps and create some dynamic scenes with them. The sweet convertible was calling to me and I thought that this curly haired cutie was a natural to be cruising down the road in it. Of course she would have a pretty pink ride because this girl likes to stand out in a crowd. That perfect scene in the background? The new Cartopia paper pack has all sorts of fun prints in it that will go great with this stamp set. I'll admit it... I bought it just for these stamps, LOL! ;)    

Alrighty, well the June challenge just wrapped up but be sure to check back here tomorrow when July's challenge kicks off! With all the new goodies Kelly has been bringing into the store that $20 gift certificate that is up for grabs could really help to fill a shopping cart!

Before I get to my card, I just wanted to remind you that you have just a few more hours to take advantage of the Inventory Reduction Sale going on right now at 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store. All the details are HERE.
 
I don't usually do a lot of watercoloring, but since I purchased these awesome metallic ink pans from 7 Kids called Prima Marketing Metallic Accents, I've been doing some under-the-sea backgrounds. These paints are amazing!! The colors are pretty, bright, shimmery, and perfect for so many different applications. For a tutorial on how I created this under-the-sea scene, head over to the 7 Kids Blog HERE.
 
On this card, I'm featuring the fabulous little mermaid from DoCrafts called Gorjuss #31 AWASHED. She's colored with Copic Markers. I added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker all over her tail and hair. I used the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die to cut out a frame on the background piece. I then raised that piece on some craft foam for added dimension.
 
Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E02, E11, E04
Hair: Black, C7, BG13
Tail: BG18, BG15, BG13, BG10, V15, V12, RV55, RV32, RV10
