Stampin Friends Blog Hop- Just Rewind and Redo


Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop.  This month the theme is Rewind and Redo. This means that we are sharing a new project using a technique or project we have done in the past.  I am redoing this project from our January Hop, Birthday Celebrations.  If you are following along the hop, you should have arrived from Steph Jandrow's blog.  Make sure to read through my blog, comment below and then continue to Jo Blackman's blog.

If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of Blog Hoppers at the end of each blog.

Here are the projects I created for our Just Rewind and Redo theme.   

Up first is the card I created. 

 I created the card base with paper from Echo Park and the die from Sizzix.  I then stamped the image from Clearly Besotted- Flower Friends on a piece of White cardstock and die cut it with my Journey Squares.  


I stamped the sentiment from the same set with black ink.

I colored the image with my Copics:

Body: W5, W3, W1

Stem: YG13, YG11

Flower: Y15, Y13, Y11.

 

I then created a tag to match using the same supplies and Copics.  I made the tag with a die from Spellbinders.


Together the projects look wonderful, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment and then hop along with us.

Bitten By the Bug 2 Recycling Challenge

 


 Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a unique challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge Blog.  Let's see what projects we can come up with recycling.

I reused a Folgers Coffee Container.

I painted the container and created a Halloween candy container.


I used a cut file from Miss Kate's Cuttables to create the face and cut from vinyl.  I had to fussy cut the hair to fit the container, but used the rest of the file as is.

 

I even put vinyl bolts on the sides.  I drew with a Sharpie the stitches and the smile. 

I can't wait to use this container to give out candy this year.  

Now it is your turn.  Create something from something else and share it with us at Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge Blog.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

Crafty Gals Corner- Christmas in July Challenge


 Hello Crafty Friends,

Half of the year is gone and can't believe we are even thinking about Christmas, but here we are.  I love Christmas so I will play along.

I was able to color up this adorable image from Leann's World named Kandy Kane. 


I used pattern paper from Echo Park to create the card.  The sentiment is from Queen and Co.

I colored the image with my Copics:

Skin: E11, E21, E00, R81

Hat and Jacket: R59, R46, R24

Hair: E57, E55, E53

Skirt and Scarf: G99, G94, G24

Boots: C9, C7, C5

Ornament: B00, B000

It is hard to see in the picture, but added some Wink of Stella to the cotton areas of the outfit and the ornament.  

Now it is your turn.  Create a Christmas project and share it with us at Crafty Gals Corner.

Bitten by the Bug 2 in Collaboration with Double Trouble Challenge

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

The challenge for the next two weeks on Bitten by the Bug 2 is a collaboration with Double Trouble Challenge Blog.  The theme is baby, so I wanted to make this adorable onesie box from My Scrap Chick.


I used cardstock from my stash and pattern paper from Fun Stampers Journey's Good Life collection.

I cut everything out with my Cricut and then created the box first.

I then put the little vest and tie on to the top using foam squares.  For an added dimension, I added some blue buttons from my stash.

I finished the box off by adding stitched lines with a white pen around the edges.

The box is a nice size and would be perfect for a small gift or candy.

Now it is your turn.  Check out the information on Bitten by the Bug 2 and create your own Baby project and share it with us.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

Angie's Digital Stamps Challenge Blog with a Flag Twist

 

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

Happy 4th of July!  I hope you have a wonderful day doing whatever makes you happy.

Today we have a new challenge at Angie's Digital Stamps Challenge Blog.  Let's see those projects with a flag twist.

I got to color up this adorable bear in his boat.


 The bear and boat are colored with Copics. 

Boat: E29, E27, E25, G99, G94, G24

Bear: E35, E33, E31, B29, B28, B26

I then mounted the boat on a scrap piece of water paper and added the sun behind him.  

I created the flag using washi tape in my stash on a toothpick.

Thanks for stopping by,  Please leave me a comment and then share a project with us over at Angie's Digital Stamps Challenge Blog.

Simply Create Too- Sentiment as the Main Focus

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today we have a new challenge at Simply Create Too where the sentiment needs to be the main focus.  This challenge was a struggle for me, but once I got my Queen and Company stacked sentiments, I knew exactly what I was going to do.

The card base was done with white cardstock and pattern paper from Doodlebug Designs.  I then wrapped some red and white baker's twine around the top layer.

I then die cut the sentiment from Glitter Fun Foam and White cardstock and layered them.  I then added them to the card front in a pattern.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment and then join the challenge at Simply Create Too Challenge Blog.

Love to Craft Challenge Blog: Anything Goes

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

It is July 1st, can you believe it?  Half of the year is over already and I have so much more I want to do.  

Today I want to share with you a tag I created for a swap recently.  I used the Prehistoric Family stamp set from Kindred Stamps to create this tag.

The two girls and the sentiments are all from the stamp set.

I used my Copics to color the characters:

Wilma: 

Skin: E11, E21, E51, E50

Hair: E08, E13

Lips: R35

Betty:

Skin: E11, E21, E51, E50

Dress and Bow: B23, B21

Hair: 100, C9, C7

Lips: R35

The background paper and ribbon were from my stash.

I loved creating this tag and want to see what you come up with.  Please craft something and share it with us at Love to Craft Challenge Blog.  Also, leave me a comment.
