Amazing Life Wreath Builder

I’ve seen Jennifer McGuire make so many beautiful cards using a wreath builder so I decided I was finally going to give it a try.  I made my wreath builder using a stencil blank from a local craft store and my Silhouette Cameo.  I decided the little images in the Amazing Life stamp set might work for this and I think I just need some more practice.  I think it’s cute.  As you can see, I need to practice with the Stampin’ Blends also.  🙂

Humming Along Watercolor

I decided to play with the Brusho crystals to watercolor the flower from the Humming Along Cling Stamp Set.  First I stamped the flower on watercolor paper using VersaMark and clear embossing powder.  I then used a mask and stamped and embossed two more times.  I tapped out some of the crystals into a palette and added water to use for my watercoloring.  The sentiment may have been better on it’s own banner but I kinda like it like this because I can see the flower through it.

Paper Pumpkin – Day by Day kit

Happy New Year!  I’m back today with an alternative for the December 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I really wanted to have the year on each of the months and a picture that went with them so here is what I came up with.  (My craft table is a mess right now, you will see why when you see how many stamp sets I used.)

I used the retired Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper on a piece of chipboard I saved from the kit.  I ALWAYS save my chipboard, you never know when you will need it.  The rings are 1/2″ book rings and I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the chipboard.  I cut the chipboard on my guillotine style cutter after adding the DSP (apparently I need to clean the blade to get a sharper cut).  The banner for each year is from Pick A Pennant and done using the Stamparatus.

The chipboard is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ front and back.  The base is 4″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 1″, 2″, & 3″ then folded as above.  I attached the chipboard using Beacon 3 in 1 glue.

Buffalo Check Dashing Deer

I absolutely love the Buffalo Check background stamp and I thought pairing it with the Dashing Deer bundle would be great.  I love how this card came out.  I even used the beautiful deer die on the inside.
