Fairy DIY Gift

I made a necklace, matching card and gift bag for a Fairy Fan. I thought I would share how I did it. This was a super easy thing to make using a digital download. I found mine at Calico Collage ! She has the best art I have ever seen and a huge selection. It was hard to pick which one I wanted to feature.

To see how I put it together I made a video tutorial for you. You can find it here

Please subscribe to my blog and channel if you have not already done so. I have a lot of fun stuff coming out soon.

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Sugar Skull Card

 I have a confession to make….though I am on who likes to push the limits in my art and I love edgy things, I have always steered clear of skulls. It is not like they offend me. I just struggle with the concept of them and making them pretty. However, living in the Southwest and participating in Day of the Dead and Cinco De Mayo I have grown to admire Sugar Skulls. I thought it was time that I used them in my art.

 I wanted to create something colorful, whimsical and pretty so I stuck with bright bold embellishments that I made with Rinea Foiled Paper

I found these Sugar Skull paper dolls to be gorgous and I had to use them from Calico Collage .

I upload a step by step how to on making this card here . Please go check it out and don’t forget to subscribe if you have not already done so!

Mother’s Day Card

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! This year I decided to make my Mom a card with a bunch of fun stuff from Brutus Monroe that just came out! First up creating a base using the Scratch background with the Lemon Zest Surface Ink.

 I also stamped the butterfly with the same stamp and ink

 I used the Detail ink in Raven to stamp these gorgeous roses from the Banner stamp set.

 I wanted to add some color so I dabbed Sage Surface Ink on my craft mat, spritzed it with water and grabbed my paint brush.

 I painted the leaves with it.

 I did the same thing again using the Rouge Surface Ink on the roses.

 As the roses dried I stamped the sentiment on two tags that I had made out of the tag die cuts with the Peg Alphabet.

 I used my Scan n Cut to cut the flowers and cut out the backing from pop dot packaging.

 I put the butterfly together.

 I then put it all together.

 This went off in the mail today! I mailed her a little gift too (she lives in another state) so I did not have to worry about smashing the butterfly into an envelope.

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Sugar Skull ATC

Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner! Every time I think about it or Day of the Dead which is November 2 I associate sugar skulls with them. I decided I wanted to make a spooky yet beautiful sugar skull ATC card. I download an ATC digital print sheet from Calico Collage and pulled out my Rinea Foiled Paper to make a shiny bright flower. I used vellum to give it a spooky appearance over the original digital art. I then used a permanent rubber cement technique to adhere the rest.

I uploaded a nice tutorial on the process here. Feel free to check it out!

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Enchanted Rose Coaster

I am going through this phase right now that includes dominoes, Brutus Monroe Surface Inks and background stamps. No Joke! It is hard to find a universal ink that does everything and can be used on anything. Add to that a big beautiful image and being able to use it all on an everyday item…or at least something that most homes have in a new way makes me a happy crafter! I created this:

It’s a coaster. A totally usable functional beautiful coaster. I’ m over on the Brutus Monroe Blog today in which I show you how to create this step by step. Check it out here: Brutus Monroe. I am even enabling because you can visit the store and pick up the stamp and inks. Sorry….not really….but don’t say I didn’t warn you 😉 For realz though! Head over and check it out! This is one of the coolest things I have come up with in my wee little brain in a long time.

Until Next Time ~ Happy Crafting!
