Washi Tape Wednesday 6/28/17

Hello Crafty friends,
I hope you are having a great day.  Today I want to share with you a card I made using some of the 2 inch washi tape that Fun Stampers Journey sells.

I started the card, by using a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock measuring at 5 3/8 x 4 1/8.  I then took the Mother Nature washi tape and placed a strip on either side of the cardstock.  There will be a strip in the middle that does not get covered.  That is ok.  That is where I wrapped a piece of Pineapple Smoothie Gingham ribbon around and tied a bow.  That is how easy it is to create a very simple background paper.
Fun Stampers Journey has five more choices of 2 inch washi tape.  You can check it our here.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Happy Sentiments
Paper: Whip Cream Cardstock, Pineapple Smoothie Cardstock, Watermelon Fusion Cardstock
Ink: Black Licorice
Ribbon: Pineapple Smoothie Gingham Ribbon
Accessories: Rainbow Drops
Tools: Summer Pretties Punch

CYCI #162 Sketch Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends!
Today we have a new challenge over at the Can You Case it Facebook group.  It is a sketch challenge and I always love sketch challenges.
Here is the card I created:

I used Rich Coral Cardstock, Whip Cream Cardstock and Under the Sea Pattern Prints to create the base of my card and layers.
I then stamped the crab from Snappy Birthday using Rich Coral ink on Whip Cream Cardstock and detail cut him out.  I also stamped the sentiment on another piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.
Before I added the crab to the card, I used the Hazelnut Blend Pan Pastel (coming July 1st) to create the background of sand.

I hope you will join us with this challenge:

Faith Friday 6/23/17

Hello crafty friends!
Today, I have a Bible Journaling page I want to share with you.

I love the way this page turned out.  I wanted it to be dramatic because of the subject of the verse. 
To create this page:
1. I die cut the Color Cross die out of a piece of scrap cardstock.  I then held it in place with a piece of washi tape.
2. I then took the Pomegranate Splash PanPastel from the Mother Nature set and created the shadow around the cross.
3. I took the Cranberry Bliss Silk and brushed it on starting at the die cut and working out.

Supplies Used:
Dies: Color Cross
Silk: Cranberry Bliss
PanPastel: Mother Nature

Two for Tuesday: Make a wish Jellyfish

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have two cards to share with you.
First, let me tell you about the technique.

I love this little jellyfish, and I wanted to try something with it.
Here is how I made the jellyfish:
1. I created a pool of color with Cosmic Grape and Outrageous Pink silk on a piece of clear sheet.
2. Spray the silk with water, to get the silks to mix.
3. Ink up the stamp with Whip Cream ink.
4. Stamp the jellyfish with the color on the clear sheet.
5. Stamp the jellyfish onto a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.
Not only do you get the variegated color on the jellyfish, but it gives some movement to him as well.

I had so much fun creating the purple one, that I wanted to try it again with a different color combination.  This time I used Turbo Teal and Electric Lime silk.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Jelly Wishes (retiring 6/30)
Paper: Whip Cream Cardstock, Cosmic Grape Cardstock, Turbo Teal Cardstock
Ink: Cosmic Grape, Whip Cream, Turbo Teal
Silk: Cosmic Grape, Outrageous Pink, Turbo Teal, Electric Lime
Accessories:  Whip Cream Journey Thread, Rhinestones, Journey Sparkle Cuts, Journey Glaze
