Sharing Seed by Stampendous

Happy Tuesday my crafty friends! I have a sweet card to share with you today!




The stamp is called Sharing Seed by Stampendous. I think this image is so cute! I just love those little chicks! The image was stamped on watercolor paper with Black Archival Ink. And then I pulled out my watercolors and Distress Markers to paint the image. I am working hard to improve my watercoloring skills. It is so therapeutic!
And forgiving!!! Which I like the most! ha!

There is still time to join our current ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE here!

You could win a $25 shopping spree to the store!



Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Sunday everyone!!  Rachel here, and I wanted to share the details of my current 7 Kids College Fund challenge!!!

I just had to use one of my favorite Mo Manning stamps- Love Sign.

She has the cutest little face and dress!!!
then colored her up with my Copic markers.
to create some layers, with the Bo Bunny Souvenir
6x6 patterned paper pad.

The sentiment is from the Bushel And A Peck

Good Morning, Jo here for this lovely Saturday. Time for a new challenge up over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog"Anything Goes" is the theme for the challenge BUT make sure you use a STAMP/IMAGE carried in the 7 Kids College Fund Store in order to qualify.


Here is my card using Pion Designs - Shoreline Treasures 6x6 Papers. This particular collection has a vintage, beachy/nautical theme, with soft blues and creams. I wanted to create a very serene card. The edges of the papers are distressed with the Tim Holtz Distresser. My main focus of my card is the girl image. To frame the swimmer, I used By DIEzyne - Stitched Circles

The sentiment "live every moment, love everyday, love beyond words" is from Mama Elephant - Everyday Greetings. I added an extra fishtail banner to incorporate more of the lovely designer paper. The base of the card is corrugated cardboard. I added some flowers, flat back pearls and seam binding. Behind the image, I added a piece of burlap trim.

H is for Happy


Happy First day of Spring!!!!!  I wanted to share a  project I made for my Daughter who is  turning 20.  I made this fun envelope out of the yummy papers from the Vintage Bliss 6X6 Paper Pad from Simple Stories


Inside the envelope is a puzzle I made from this cool die that turns any thing you want into a puzzle. It's called  Jigsaw Pieces XCut Dies by Docrafts. For the puzzle I just printed out words that described my daughter in different fonts and colors onto card stock and used the die to create the puzzle. Pretty simple and fun!!!

I hope you all have a great weekend and be sure to visit our Challenge blog to see the latest anything goes challenge. This time there's a twist.  Join in on the fun and you may win a gift certificate to spend in the 7kids store.
Happy Card making

I love this adorable fox.  We have a real fox that we see occasionally.   Our house backs up to woods and  one day my husband said "look, look!" and dang there was a red fox in our backyard. He wondered down to the cal-de-sac and cross the road to go to another section of woods. Scared the poop out of me and 3 weeks later our fenced was installed. I have two small dogs and ... we got the fence!

This stamp set comes with 7 sentiments, fox on the stump and two leaves.  More for the buck!! 7 Kids College Fund Store  prices are the cheapest around and this makes a super bargain!

C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Cupid

Happy Monday everyone! It's Rosie here today to share the details on the card I made for the current challenge on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog! The theme for the next week is: ANYTHING GOES with an optional twist of ADD SOME GREEN!
 
PLEASE be sure to use an image carried in the 7 Kids College Fund Store before linking your projects!! The challenge ends on MARCH 24th, 12:00pm MST.
 
I colored up this cute, adorable girl from C.C. Designs called Swiss Pixie Cupid. I absolutely LOVE her!! She's stamped on Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. This is a new medium for me so I'm still learning how to blend with them. They are very juicy so they don't require a lot of pressure when coloring. I definitely need to practice some more. I also added lots of sparkle to her dress, wings, and heart using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker.

I decided to make a shaker card!! They are so much fun! I used this tutorial HERE. My dps are from Simple Stories A CHARMED LIFE 6x6 Paper Pad. The heart circle was cut out of green foam using Spellbinders Heart Circles Nestabilities. I cut the larger heart circle also to get the bigger hearts to use inside my shaker card. The smaller hearts and triangles came from the die I used on my card. Then I added some gold sequins. The sentiment is from Penny Black From the Heart Acrylic Stamp Set.
