Dream Big Clara

Chris here sharing Cheery greetings today.  I am so excited to share this card I created with the brand new Clara and Words Stamp Set from Blank Page Muse.  It is no secret as a bird owner, I love birdie stamps and this little lady won my heart. I even added some sparkle and shine accents! 



Supplies need to recreate this card
water color paper
alcohol markers
ink
Glitter Card Stock
Card stock
patterned paper 
punches
stickles

Start by stamping Clara onto watercolor paper.  Color the image as desired. As always I chose a green color for my birdie as my quarter parrot is green. 


Add stickles to hearts on her dress. Matt onto glitter card stock. Stamp sentiment onto punched tag. Accessorize card with punches adding stickles as desired to finish. 

I hope you are inspired to get crafty with your stamps!

Guest Designer Samantha~Octopus Got Attitude!

Hello, hello! Samantha Ziegenfuss here with a fun card to share with you all today.

Much like this octopus I often wish I had 8 arms to smack people with and that is what inspired my card.

Let's jump right in!

To begin you will stamp and heat embossed the flying octopus stamp onto watercolor paper cut to 4" x 4".



Paint the octopus first and then do wet on wet watercolor painting in the background; adding more color and layers until you're happy.





Add a generous amount of shimmer to the entire thing.


Cut your octopus panel with a basic wavy stitched border die and apply a 1.5" x 4" strip of glitter paper to a white 4" x 4" note card. Adhere your panel so that it overlaps the glitter paper.







Stamp and clear heat embossed your sentiment to pink cardstock; trimming it down into a strip and gluing it to the left side of the card below the octopus.








Finish by adding a few gems.







Thanks so much for checking out my card. I have had a lot of fun guest designing and I hope to see you again.

Until next time,
Samantha

Decorated Bag Idea

Today DT Member Sharon is sharing some super quick decorated paper bags!
Get the kids to help with the painting and stamping and then they can use the bags for adding treats as gifts for their friends!
Sharon started with some tiny paper bags and used a spatula to add some coloured paints and once dry she stamped with coloured ink.
Pop a choccy inside and you have a little sweet treat gift idea!
Use the same process on bigger bags to wrap gifts in!
Have fun!

Guest Designer Jenn ~ Home Decor Anything But a Card Challenge

Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be back on the blog today with this month's theme of Not a Card.


I created a little piece of home decor—something you could put on a desk or a shelf or anywhere really!
I started with a small wooden pot that I picked up at a local craft store.

I painted it with some acrylic paint in yellow and a sort of raspberry color. I am really into this color palette lately. I like how the colors combine to make orange so you really end up with three colors. (At the last minute, I added some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and a little white paint as well. You can see that in the pictures at the end.)
Once the pot was dry, I stamped all sides of it with the gorgeous Fancy Curls & Flowers Flourish Art Rubber Stamp by Terri Sproul. I love this stamp!!

Next, I stamped the Bird Open Wings Patterned Art Rubber Stamp with black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Once I fussy cut it, I colored it with Distress Oxide Ink in Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry. I ended up cutting the bird shape on another piece of paper and coloring that with Distress Oxide Ink as well. I needed to be able to hide the wire I was going to use to hold up the bird. (A photo of that is at the end.)

I got a piece of floral wire, cut it to length, and wrapped it in washi tape.


Then I took my stamped, embossed, and colored bird along with my plain bird shape and put them together on the wire using mounting tape. I put a small piece of floral foam in the bottom of the pot and put the wire in.

I added some Spanish moss and dabbed it with some white paint for a little contrast.

Finally, I stamped the Dare to Fly Small Word Art Stamp on white paper, cut it to size, layered it with black paper, and adhered it to the pot.



I really enjoyed making this! It was just the right project to welcome spring.
This is my last post for a bit while I deal with some medical issues. I hope to be back in a couple of months. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy and kind. Remember, we're all in this together!
