Guest Designer Kimberly- Floating Down the River

May 27, 2017

Hi Everyone!
Kimberly from Kimberly's Crafty Spot as a Guest Designer.
I made another summer inspired card using the Pool Piggies 4x6 clear stamp set.


For the card, I started by water coloring a piece of water color cardstock with several blue distress inks then added some water droplets, finally I sprayed it with some shimmer mist to sparkle. This will be the water part of the river for the pig to float on.
Then, I took some kraft card stock and die cut it with some wavy border dies to look like the beach or shore, depending on where the river is, I added some dots with copic markers to look like sand. I also double stamped the sentiment in two colors of ink, with a misti stamp tool, in tan and brown.
Next, I stamped and colored the pig, then I stamped the round float and ball on some patterned paper and paper pieced the float.


I added some glossy accents to the ball, pig to look like water droplets and to the fish for bubbles.
Then I added some stickers to the card for some accents. The pig looks like he is having fun and so relaxed!!
Thanks again to Gerda and Macy for letting me be a guest designer.
I hope to have inspired you !

How sweet are these little bunnies? I just love then and was so excited to use them to make a friendship thank you card. But I wanted to do somthing a little different.

I wanted a softer look for this card so rather then stamping with black ink onto white paper, I used gray...

Wishing You a Very Happy Easter

March 22, 2019

Happy Friday! It's finally Spring!! Easter will be here soon and I just love this bunny from the new Easter Bunnies stamp set.

First, I created a background for the bunny by die-cutting a large egg and inking a few clouds and grass with Distress Inks.

For a little extra interest, I adhered the egg to a piece of white cardstock slightly overlapping the edge and then die-cut using a stitched rectangle...
