Artist Trading Coins

Hi friends! I hope you all are well and staying safe. I’ve popped in today with a few more ATCs. I’m an admitted ATC addict and I’m steadily adding to my collection! I’m playing with The Project Bin stamps again, and used round stamps from Born Yesterday, Haunt It and Summer Fun stamp sets. I added a little clear star shimmer to each. 

The birthday sentiment is from the Born Yesterday stamp set, stamped in rosy pink ink.

The vitamin sea sentiment is from the Summer Fun stamp set, stamped in aqua ink.

One more peek at the set… loving how these turned out! I belong to a couple ATC trading groups but I’m finding more and more that I don’t want to part with any of them, lol!

Thank you for your kindness

Hello, crafty peeps! Happy Hump Day – have you any April Fools Day jokes planned?! I’m delighted to be back on the blog today over at The Project Bin with a pretty thank you card! I dug into my stash and pulled out the Just Sayin’ stamp set to create this gingham and wood card. Super simple design! ;)

2020_0330002

I layered the gingham and wood paper panel on charcoal brown cardstock, separating the two patterns with a thin strip of the charcoal brown cardstock. I stamped the sentiment directly on the paper in brown ink and finished the design with five small green gemstones on the cardstock strip.

2020_0330003

I embellished the inside panel with leftover gingham paper and brown cardstock used on the front, then layered it on the brown cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink.

2020_0330004

One more look… totally loving this clean design! And green and brown really do look great together!

Definitions ATCs

Hi everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! I’m happy to be back on the blog today over at The Project Bin with an awesome set of ATCs! I have become an ATC addict and absolutely love creating (and collecting) cards and coins, so I thought a set of coins using all the cool definitions in the Defined stamp set was only fitting!

2020_03300020

I love color – the brighter the better, lol! I inked each coin with three distress inks, splattered them with water in the distress sprayer, and stamped the definitions in black ink. I ran a black marker around the edge of each coin for a finished look and added three small gemstones to each to finish them off.

Someone I love was born today

Hi friends! Happy Monday! I’m thrilled to be on the blog today over at The Project Bin with a pretty birthday card! I was provided the Born Yesterday and Defined stamp sets and created a card featuring a pocket on the front with a tag inside and a little bit ‘o bling!

2020_0329005
2020_0329006

I chose a pretty floral print for the background and created the pocket from matching cardstock. The front and inside sentiments are from the Born Yesterday stamp set, and the tag sentiment is from the new Defined stamp set. I added striped ribbon tied with silver string to the top of the tag, and added tiny iridescent gemstones along both sides of the angled strip.

2020_0329007

I embellished the inside panel with leftover paper and cardstock used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in matching ink.

2020_0329008

And one more look… I am really loving how this turned out! I’m thinking it might go to our middle granddaughter!

Life’s A Witch

Hi friends! Happy Monday and a big Woo-Hoo! I’m thrilled to be introduced on the blog today over at The Project Bin as the new tutorial creator! Denise is bringing the tutorials back and I’ll be creating crafty tutorials periodically to fill in gaps or when extra projects are needed. I’m so stoked to be a new DT member and am really looking forward to working with these awesome stamps and dies! I was provided the amazing Haunt It stamp set and created a fun Halloween card, my first tutorial on the blog, so if you’re interested, take a peek at that HERE

I kept with an orange, yellow and black Halloween color scheme for this card. I love that the sentiment is large and is the focal point.

2020_0213001a

I measured and cut a shaped element that matches the shape of the focal point sentiment, which is kind of cool. I used a couple of my favorite stitched dies and added some bling.

2020_0213002a

I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the paper and cardstock used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in black ink.

2020_0213003a

One more peek… I LOVE how this turned out! Just cracks me up, lol!
