Eat Cake First

Birthday cards are so much fun! We just had to add some fun birthday red rubber stamps to our new catalog. 
Create this bright and cheery Eat Cake First Card with our new Birthday Bash Stamp Set and Die – a discounted bundle is also available. 
Every element on this card draws the eye in to your super cute Birthday Bash image.
The bold contrasting border of Black Licorice creates a simple frame surrounding your featured imagery. Then your Chevron Trail background Stamp pulls the eyes down toward your stamped image. Finally the Cool Pool Journey Satin Ribbon intrigues the sight to rest nicely on the details of your Birthday Bash image. 

Add a touch of flair with a few Candy Minis, Journey Silver Silk and Turbo Teal Silk.

Desert Greetings Stamp

Hey Crafters, it has been a minute since I have updated my Blog.. I have been focusing on Facebook and Instagram Sharing. I decided to get Crafty tonight and use this stamp set and my new Pan pastels. Yeah! I am still a newbie and do not consider myself an artist, but I really love the look the pan pastels gave the card.

Black Licorice Cardstock creates the base of their 4.25x5.5 card.

The Skull was inked with clear pigment ink and stamped on WhipCream Cardstock.
I then took my Blending tool and the Black pan from the Pan Pastel Set and ran that across the clear image. I took a little white and made a few highlights and then again went over the image with black.

I then stamped the flower image with the clear pigment ink and repeated the same process on the skull as on the flowers.. The first color I used was red and I used the "slipper" tool. The Party Pop set does not have green and it is the only set I own, so I first used the yellow on the leaves and then dark blue over the flowers to get the desired green color, I went back over with the yellow a second time to lighten up the blue tones.

Then I placed both dies on the Journey Platinum machine on the magnetic side and ran them through the machine to cut out the stamped and colored images.

I cut a piece of Printed Cardstock (retired) to 5x4
Then cut a piece of Candy Apple Cardstock to 3x4 
and adhered the two pieces together.
I tied a doubled bow using the Black Licorice Satin Ribbon and adhered it to the paper and then the pieces to the front of the card.

I used the small foam squares and doubled up on them to pop the skull off of the card and placed it sort of catty wompus onto the from to the front. I then trimmed the stem off of the flower and popped it off of the skull using 1 small foam square.

I cut a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock to 5x4 and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Creativity with more than Paper

So I have been asking my Husband for over a year to buy me a blasting cabinet and threatened to purchase one on my own when he was living in Virginia for a year.. Needless to say I had no truck no way to pick one up so I never did..

A couple months ago I saw one listed on Craigslist and my Husband went to check it out.. Well used/loved still had life left in it and best is my Husband talked him down to $50!! What!

This Keyring for my Daughters Teacher was my first go at etching with the blasting cabinet..

Then my husband complained I didn't put his name on his cup for him for Fathers Day so last night I etched his cup from Sams Club (similar to a Yeti).  He was really happy with it, which made me happy!

So lets take a look at what I have worked on non papercrafting the past month along with the above projects.

Have you been crafty? What have you been creating?
