Tip/Technique Hop - Skipping Stones Designs

Hello everyone,

I'm here to share a tip with you on how I store my stamp sets when they first arrive in my craft room. I like to leave out my new goodies so that I can look at them and play and use them in different ways.  Then, when I'm all done I put them into their storage pockets.  So what I do to be able to get into them easily, I cut off the tops to the cellophane packaging.  That way I can take them out without having to undo the bottom and tare it apart.  

Now on with my card.

Gold is the in right now and I am tickled with that.

I used the the feather from the Victorian Summer set and the sentiment is from the Dandelion Dreams stamp set, which is one of my favourites.  I used gold pigment ink to stamp the feather and a chocolate die ink for the sentiment.  Then I finished off the card with some chocolate and gold sequins.

Be sure to show the rest of the Team some blog.  There are lots of tips and techniques to share with you.  Also stop buy the shop there are lots of great stamps!

AAA Card Game 49 - Word Play

Hi everyone,

I'm here today and our challenge today is mostly words.

I love fall and all of it's colours so I decided to got with an ombre look with my words.

I used the WPlus9 Sunshine die and cut it out of some water colour paper and used my water colours to create the ombre.  I used the SSS stitched rectangles to cut out the panels and popped them up on an A2 card base.

Thanks for playing along and don't forget to link up here.  We always love to see what you do.

SSD - Stamp & Share Monthly Challenge

Hi everyone,

I'm back today with a card for our Stamp & Share Monthly Challenge.  


I am using the colours from the inspiration photo for my card today.  I love the teals and greys together.

I used the Timeless Textures along with the Grunge stamp sets.  I love combining my sets to get even more out of them.  I cut out two panels with rectangle dies and added the sentiment to a die cut banner and heat embossed the Happy Birthday. 

Be sure to head over to the Skipping Stones Designs Blog to add your card to the linky, Heather is giving away a free stamp set!!

Happy Fall - Card

Hello everyone,

Fall is my favourite time of year.  I love the cooler days and nights cause I love wearing my fuzzy socks!

I love these stitched leaves from Lawn Fawn and they are so much fun to water colour too!

I used a variety of distress inks for these as well as some perfect pearls powder.  As I heated them with my heat gun they curled (as it normally does when you heat set paper) and they looked realistic so I went with.

I used the LF stitched rectangle dies and the newest stitched oval dies to create the front panel.  I popped it up with foam tape and filled it with seed beads and sequins (some are from Pretty Pink Posh and some are from my stash) and there you have a shaker!   

I added a panel to the back so that I could work with it and adhered it to a card base.  I then added on the leaves and that was it!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!

HELLO, Sunshine!

Hi everyone!

It's Coralynn here and I'm back with a tag for you today.

I am loving the pineapple background from MFT.  It gives your projects just that extra small touch.

I used the MFT  Polynesian stamps and die set and used my copics to colour in the images. Then used the MFT Stitched tag stax as well as the Lawn Fawn stitched oval dies for this project. I stamped the background with a light yellow ink and I stamped the sentiment with Memento Onyx black ink.  I popped up the girl and flowers with foam tape.  To finish it off I added some natural twine from my stash and some Wink of Stella.

Be sure to stop by the shop,  there are lots of new goodies added everyday!  

Thanks for stopping by, see you again!
