A floral thank you from Anthony’s Paper Crafts

I decided to play along with the sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. I gotta tell you, this is one of my most favorite stamps from Anthony’s Paper Craft. The sentiment and the flowers are from the set Floral Background 2. I stamped it on white card stock with Gina K. Black ink and colored in with Zig watercolor markers. The background was sponged with soft sky. I punched them out with 1 1/4 inch punch and layered it ha black border using a 1 3/8 punch. The bg was sponged with soft sky and run through burlap embossing folder. The sentiment was sponged and punched and layer3d with black, too. Happy crafting and head over to Anthony’s Paper Craft!

If you Give a Crafter a Cookie Oct. 17th #128

I don't know about anyone else, but I can't believe that it is almost Halloween! Wild. 
For this creation today, I pulled out and oldie, but goodie Mark's Finest Papers set from 2013 called What a scream. 
I stamped Frankie in black and colored in his face with pear pizazz. I fussy cut him out and the sentiments as well. For some interest, I used Nuvo drops in gray on his stitches. I used a fun and funky cuttlebug folder over this old SU! dp. Lastly, I decided to use some hands.

Take care,

If You Give a Crafter a Cookie #127, Oct. 3rd

I ad so much fun making this card! I started with a piece of watercolor paper which I used glimmer spray in orange/gold. After drying it with my heat gun, I used red, orange and yellow to stamp the leaves from two Stampin Up sets and my sentiment is from Unity. Next, I embossed the image and then rubbed some gold Inka gold on the leaves......oh, I added blue , too!

Crafting by Designs...October Anything Goes!

Happy October! For my first creation, I used Dr. Digi's Phyllis the Festive Fairy

Using some old, old SU! designer paper, I paper pieced her dress and the background paper that is embossed is also from same paper pack. I used Zigg markers to color her skin and hair. Purple glitter was used for the butterfly and star.

My second creation is from Twinkle Lane Designs and I used the sheep knitter.
I used a combination of markers and Zig watercolor brushes to color her up and then used some dimensional paint from Nuvo. I love how this turned out!

My last creation is from Hetty Clare and I paper pieced the Country Girl Rose with some leftover and unknown designer paper. I used the tulip embossing folder around her, too. I couldn't decide on a sentiment but will add one when I use it!

If you give a Crafter a Cookie #126

Happy Day! School days! Didn't this summer fly by?
I was hanging at our cabin in the mountains and didn't think I had any school related stamps and then I came across this fun stamp from Unity. I chose to just pick up some of the colors and then I added some Unity flowers, too. Simple...easy, peasy!

Good morning and yippee for If you Give a Crafter a Cookie's 5th Year anniversary! How exciting. Pretty cool, eh?

For my creation, I decided to use the inspiration a bit literally. I chose this darling camper stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs. My sentiment is from Unity and it's called Hoppy and Hedgie. I used a combination of watercolor markers and regular markers. The sentiment was stamped in black and then cut up and placed on dimensionals. I used a cute little bird brad for interest and some embroidery thread to finish it off.

Head on over and play along!
