Hey Bloggy friends!
Thanks for stopping by!
|This is the Pinterest picture that inspired me to make my own eraser stamps! If you have a Pinterest be sure to go follow my craft boards it's really fun to just get inspired there ( My Pinterest button is on the sidebar) be sure to share your craft boards with me as well! |
I carved these pencils with a sharp blade and decided on an chevron arrow and tri-angle as the shapes. I used a pen to draw the shapes onto the erasers before I cut, the marks served as a cutting guide. Once I finished cutting,I then inked my stamps with a kaleidoscope ink pad to create fun designs in bright colors.
|Copic markers used on this cute Duo :C2,C4,C6,C8,C10,N1,0- Blender, Beak YR31,YR23.|
|For the inside I kept it simple and just added some ribbon.|
I hope you guys love this card as much as I loved making it! Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the bloggy-sphere. :-P
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo black,London fog, Bahama Blue) Distress inks (Iced Spruce ,Evergreen Bough)( Stamps: Winter friends, Critters in the snow). Cardstock ( Neenah Solar white, American craft)
|The actual Polaroid around Miss GF Odetta is from Stamping Bella. I created the background with my copic markers and Odetta is also colored with Copic's. |
(Inside of Card)
On the inside I used the same AT paper and used my spellbinder circles die to create a writing space.I added a bit of twine on the inside wrapped around the banner.

|I'm entering this card into the " Show us your Fav challenge" at the KKS blog which I think works just perfectly with my new card, don't you? ;-)|
|I colored my stamped image with Copic sketch markers and I'm in love with how his cape turned out! I created all the other items on the card besides the flowers which I colored to match the rest of my card. Thanks again for popping by!|
|The Candies are from the same stamp set and they were also Copic Colored and I added some stickles to add a little Bling!|
|The background paper is by Donna Salazar/GCD studio. I really love wood grain patterns nothing inspires me more than nature ( No surprise though because God is the Ultimate Artist :-) ). I pulled out my Spellbinders Labels one die and did a little bit of die cutting for the background shape.|
|My rolled Flower with some Pearl Bling! I hope you guys find some inspiration in my card and join some Challenges!|
|(From left to Right) The first ( and 3rd) papers are a mix of doodles, stamping and paper piecing.While the very Middle paper is just primarily stamping and embossing.|
|To create this paper I used a background stamp from Inkadinkado which I heat embossed using some Stampendous embossing powder in (Detailed White Opaque). The mix of pink and purple was created with some Lindy's Mica powder (Purple Teal) and Rangers Dylusion spray in ( Crushed Grape). I also used Liquid Pearls (White Opal, Petal Pink, Lavender Lace) to create a dimensional affect.|
|This paper is primarily made of up of my Doodles which I made with my (Copic Multiliners). I did use a stamp to do some heat embossing in the same white embossing powder I used in the paper ( Above). To create the washed out color affect I used Dylusions ( Cut Grass & fresh lime) and Lindy's (Hydrangea Blue).|
|I just Adore how this paper came out! I used one of my very favorite stamps on this ( It's one of my fav's because it's so versatile). I decide to do some paper piecing on this custom paper just to show you ways you can incorporate even your designer paper and turn it into something that's still really uniquely your own ( I used some Amy Tangerine paper for this)! I added some of my doodles and did just a bit of Copic coloring ( I outlined the very edge of the paper with my Copic Multiliner). The pink and orange background was created with some Distress inks ( Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey), I just used a paint brush and some water for this. I left the very middle of the stamp image blank because I haven't decided yet if I want to cut that piece out and create a window affect for a future card or not. |
I created one extra Custom paper you don't see pictured here ( but will see in my YT video) because I will be using it for my next card post so be sure to check back very soon and I hope this may have inspired to create some of your own paper or even use your designer paper in a new way! Thanks for Stopping by...
|First (2) Pictures are of the actual box it came in because even that was super cute!|
|(Other Side of Box)|
|Secret Compartment for ( Bobbins, Tools, etc)|
|Cutest Knobs Ever? LOL|
|The back of my sewing machine..|
|It has a handle which is really convenient for moving on and off my desk.|
|(Different stitch options)|
|The Right side where I have another Knob and my (On & Off) switch.|
|I actually did quite a bit of fussy cutting on this card but it was totally worth it! The Leaves on the card are actually from the Some Odd Girl set; Believe ( those are my Go to leaves). Some of the Copic Sketch markers used; Bike V12,V15,V17, Dress YR02,YR04,YR07,W1, Skin YR00,YR000,YR01,BV00,R06,R20, Leaves & Jacket YG11,YG63,YG86.|
|I love having my Copic Sketch markers organized by color family.|
|I used quite a bit of Washi tape to reinforce the sides and inside shelves. The Shelves themselves are about 4x4 and where cut from heavy weight cardstock. I covered the outside of the box with cardstock designed by Donna Salazar.|
|These Mixed Media pages are called "Embrace". I have my art doodles throughout the pages and some stamping.I really enjoyed layering vintage book pages to my background with (Soft Gel Medium) to add texture.|
|I used a black sharpie and Copic Multi- liner to draw my art doodles and add small details.|
|I created that tab with some vintage rubber stamps which I stamped in Memento (Rose bud and Bahama Blue). The twenty-six I created with some saved chain in my stash which was inspired by my recent birthday.( Below is Pt.2 of the video showing me creating these pages to see Pt.1 Click Here.)|
|I outlined my clouds with Copic Multi liner 0.5 to create a whimsical affect.|
|I choose one of my favorite Oddies " Royal " for this card but who am I kidding there all my favorite! The banners behind the sentiment were also stamped from another Some Odd Girl set which I actually rolled the ( mini banners) to create a ribbon like affect. I paper pieced royals dress from a 6x6 paper pad from My Minds Eye. I stamped,embossed and die cut the chandelier from a Hero Arts/Sizzix framelits set.|
|I really love how Royals funky hair came out! I wanted add just touches of green in her hair for a more " Rock Royality" type of look as I call it, hopefully this will inspire you not to be afraid to play with some color.|
