This is another fun stamp from the Swings ‘n Slides carnival themed rubber stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps that I’ve been wanting to use. This time I’ve used Swings ‘n Slides Coconut Shy and decided it would be the focus of my card. For the background, I created another popcorn bucket but this time used different cloud shapes for the popcorn and used foam tape to give them dimension. I love the turquoise and red contrast on this card.
I think this is my favorite chipboard embellishment quote… and I always start whistling the tune to Life of Brian too! LOL This is Bright Side of Life chipboard quote from Make it Crafty and I loved how Anja did her project which is one of the store samples. I didn’t quite have all the same materials but I was able to improvise. Her’s looks amazing, by the way!
“If life seems jolly rotten, There’s something you’ve forgotten, And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing. When you’re feeling in the dumps, Don’t be silly chumps. Just purse your lips and whistle. That’s the thing.” – Always Look on the Bight Side of Life from Life of Brian.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! For this project, I’ve used Stackers Reindeer by Art Impressions and in the background is Little Village by Make it Crafty (with some Chipboard Embellishments too). I stamped the reindeer and then used a mask to stamp the background. While the mask was still there, I used Distress Inks to do the background, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch. The sentiment was covered with Liquid Pearls.
Welcome to Day 18 of my Advent! Today I don’t have a holiday card but instead a birthday card. It’s another chipboard embellishment projects that I made using Happy Birthday to You from Make it Crafty. I used the same layout that Zoe did for the Somewhere Over the Rainbow chipboard sentiment.
For the background, instead of watercolor, I thought I’d try Copic refill ink. After about 20 drops, I realized it was using as much ink as refilling a marker. Oops! So I did some splatter then called it good. Next time I’ll try something different.
My my project today, I’m using Shoot for the Moon chipboard embellishments from Make it Crafty. I attempted to do some water coloring on the background with my Spectrum Aqua markers. However, the paper beaded up so badly that I don’t think it turned out well. But I used my fingers and some water to smooth it out and salvage what I could. Then the chipboard was painted and placed on top – it didn’t turn out so bad. This is in the same style as the store samples for this product.
Many of you have seen this already but now here’s all the details plus a ton of pictures. This image was inspired by the coloring challenge with Zoe and Jennifer to color a snow globe. Other than using markers, pencils and white, the challenge was open but the idea was to study the way items reflect in the globe. I decided to go with a mason jar instead of a traditional globe but the challenge was still there. Here’s the end result…
The last step is to make a card, of course. I kept it simple since the Balsa wood canvas was already very large and I didn’t want the card to be gigantic. Hope you like it and feel free to ask me any questions.
For my project I’ve used the Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces clear stamps on two different stamps, Little Toadstools digital stamp from Make it Crafty and Hot Sip rubber stamp by DoveArt Studio. I have quite the mix going on! LOL
The main stamp is Little Toadstools from Make it Crafty. One of the silly faces I used on the smaller mushroom actually has three eyes on the original stamp. However, after inking it, I used a cotton swap and wiped away the two outer eyes before I stamping. I thought a cyclops would be perfect and it helped narrow the face a little to fit better on the stem. The second face didn’t have half the pupils because that counterpart is on the Polka Dot Pals. This allowed me to change the position of the eyes a little. I think it makes him cuter. 😀
Colors were a hard choice and I was going to go with red and orange, but I decided something different would be fun so I went with green and blue. I was lucky to find some yellow decorative paper which was the perfect kind of color pow it needed.
These are the Copic colors I used:
E41, 42, 43, 44
B0000, 01, 52, 14
YG21, 01, 23, 05, 07
YG21, 01, 23, 05

Here’s my second project…
My second project uses the Add-on Faces on the Hot Sip by DoveArt Studio. I thought a little face on this cuppa would make someone’s day. I gave her puffy cheeks and a little heart. Then I set the green up against browns to help give it a real center focus.
The Copic colors I used on this are:
YG25, 13, 01, 00, G20
BG07, 32, 11
C0, 1, 3, 5, 9
R12, 8, 2, 85, 46
E18, 11, E44
