Lots of Love

Happy Saturday!!!

Today is my dt day over on the Timeless Twine blog. I was asked to share a "technique" for today's project. A week or so ago I found this fun technique called "Ghost Stamping". I have been having a lot of fun using it, so I thought I would share it with you today.
16-16
So all you do is, stamp your image with white ink and then stamp the same image in a color, over top, but slightly offset from the white image. I love the look of this and can see myself using it a lot more in the future.  To see more examples, search "ghost stamping" on YouTube or Pinterest.

Try Me Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Today is Try me Tuesday over on the My Creative Time blog. We are doing a technique called "ghost" stamping.  So all you do is, stamp your image with white ink and then stamp the same image in a color, over top, but slightly offset from the white image.  It's a cool technique.

Since I have been doing a lot more scrapbooking lately, I thought I would make some journaling cards. 
2-2
I took the basketball journaling cards and made a layout for my oldest nephew. This is his senior year in high school and he just finished up basketball. So I thought I would showcase his accomplishments.

Tag it Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Today is Tag it Tuesday on the My Creative Time blog. I had a client ask me to make her some Easter M&M treats. 
1-1
So... I put these together. I had quite a few to make, so I kept the tag pretty simple. I used the left over papers from this project that I posted last week. I think they are pretty cute! Luckily, my client liked them too!

Bunny Bags

Happy Friday!!!

Hey there! So today is my dt day over on the Timeless Twine blog. I saw these super cute bunny bags on Pinterest, a week or so back.  I needed some quick and easy treats for client, so I thought I would try making them.
12-12
I used the Small White Kraft Bags and the Raspberry Lemonade from the store. I had some pink tissue paper, so I used that for inside the ears and I also added a small tag with a sentiment. They're filled with chocolate eggs.
11-11
Aren't they so cute!!!
Here is the link to the tutorial & template. If you print the template, at 75% it fits the bags perfectly.

Whatever Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday!!!

Today is "whatever" Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. I had this idea, for Easter/spring decor, in my head last year when the To My Best Peep Stamp Set came out. Unfortunately, I ran out of time and never got it made. Then last week I saw this on Pinterest and realized if I didn't make it, I would run out of time again.
5-5
I love how it turned out and may make another one for a friend. It came together pretty quickly, once I decided on my papers. I added the ribbon around the edge of the frame just to add a bit more color.

Basket full of Love

Happy Friday!!!

Today is my day over on the Timeless Time blog and I made a cute spring card. When I saw this bunny svg, I knew I had to make a card with her.
1-1-1
Directions:
Open bunny file and size to 3.5” tall, cut, and assemble. Stamp face stamp and color in. Cut base of card out of Kraft, 3.5” x 9.5”, score at 4.75”.  Inset pieces measure 3 1/4” x 3 5/8” and 3” x 3 3/8”.  Attach inset pieces and then bunny to card with foam tape. Stamp sentiment at center bottom of card and wrap and then tie timeless twine between sentiment and framed piece.  

I am not sure why the twine looks so much lighter/almost red in the photo.  Anyway, the Raspberry Pink twine matches the pink of the flower perfectly in real life.

Open tulip file and size to 3.5” tall, create a .1600 shadow layer around it, weld two shadow layers together at the top, (that forms the base of the card) cut, and assemble. Stamp faces on the flowers and accent. Stamp sentiment on 2 .5” x 5/8” piece of card stock, use a square punch to create the banner ends. Attach everything to the base of the card and add stitching, around the outer edge, with a white pen.
