Fly Show...

We took our youngest son to a Fly Tying Show back in the fall. He was in heaven! Rows and rows of hard to find supplies, demonstrations and the opportunity to meet some of the fly tiers he aspires to be like some day!

I used Crafters Companion Sheena A Little Bit Sketchy Wrought Iron and Stamp It Dragonfly Delights to stamp the background. Using a stamp positioner, I inked up the corner design in Wrought Iron  and created the square designs. Using Clear Scraps Diamond Mascil

Ballerina Love

I'm back with another card featuring Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy set Wrought Iron, Angelica and Friends Eleanor and the new Die'sire Decorative Dies. 

I stamped the two flourishes in the Wrought Iron set repeatedly on the card base in Versamark ink. 

Next I stamped, colored and cut out Angelica and Friends sweet Eleanor image. I adhered a strip of white cardstock, wrapped tulle and added the Eleanor image to my card front. 

To finish it off, I created "faux" chipboard letters with the new Alphabet Dies. To do this, I diecut the letters 3 times. Next I glued them together and coated with glitter. 

Supplies Used:
Sheena A Little Bit Sketchy - Wrought Iron
Spectrum Noir colors: skin (PP1, TN2, FS2), dress (PP1, PP3, CR5)
Die'sire Decorative Die- Alphabet Lowercase

Best Wishes...

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a CAS card that I created with Crafters Companion Sheena Douglass Wrought Iron stamp set. 

For my card, I challenged myself to use  Wrought Iron in a unique way. I stamped the fence image twice and placed them together to create a pattern paper strip.

Tweet Banner

Today's project features Clear Scrap's Chipboard Banner, Stampendous Cherry Bird and Authentique pattern paper! 

1. Cover chipboard with Authentique pattern paper using Beacon's Fast Finish. 
2. Stamp Cherry Bird, color and cut out. Embellish with leaves with glitter.
3. Color Clear Scrap acrylic letters with markers. Paint back with white acrylic to make color pop. 
4. Adhere diecuts, stamped images and acrylic letters to banner.
5. String banner pieces together with twine. 

A tip for if you run out of letters: Look at your letters and see if you can create the necessary letter by either trimming off a piece or overlapping. I was short an "e" when creating this banner, but I noticed that if I flipped and overlapped two "f"s I could create an "e". The leaves of the stamped image cover the seam. 

Supplies Used:
Clear Scraps (Chipboard BannerAlphabet and Numbers)
Stampendous (Cherry Bird, glitter)

Authentique pattern paper (Harmony)
Beacon (Fast Finish, Zip Dry)
Die'sire Chantilly Lace Die
Spectrum Noir markers (LY1, LY3, IG5, IG8, BT1, BT2)
white acrylic paint
