Crafting Weekend ( TIME TO MAKE THE GIFTS )

Well it is almost that time, and this time of year I really getting into my crafting.  Time to make the GIFTS.  It is a couple of days before Thanksgiving, my husband is putting the finishing touches on the outside house decorations, and I am trying to figure out what to make to give to the kids that come to see Santa.  Yes Santa comes to our house and sits outside 1 night a week in December for the kids.  When they get out of their car they can come and set on Santa's lap and tell him what they want for Christmas while enjoying the Christmas light show with the decorations that are outside.   This is the best time of the year for me and my husband.   He starts Decorating the day after Halloween!!!!!!!I will post some pictures and maybe some videos when people visit.  But anyway I have to think of something to do for the kiddies.  I do have a couple of pictures I would love to share before getting on that project.  I have finished my M&M Christmas ornaments and they turned out awesome, along with my Frosted Winter glass block light, which is great as well.  These items I made for myself  but if you would like to purchase I will take orders.  Thanks so much and Happy Crafting.

Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes

Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge

I love when you start a card thinking it will be one thing and it turns into something completely different, so needless to say the pictures that I did take as I went along don't match.  I got so into what I was doing I stopped taking pictures lol.....  When I started I wanted to do a lady bug card, not sure how it turned into a turtle but it did and I Love it.  The back ground I sponge with Tim Holtz Distress ink Broken China.  I then used a circle scalloped to do the shaker part of the card.  I stamped and colored the turtle with Spectrum Noir Makers.  The stamp is a turtle carrying a present but I changed it to a pot of planted hearts with twine around it.  I then used vellum for the sentiment.

Wedneday Simon Says: Fantastic Florals

Ok here we are for another great Challenge.  This one is Fantastic Florals Challenge, this is just in time for Spring.  Maybe it can start getting warm!  The challenge can be any kind of flowers stamped, handmade, store bought, whatever kind you want.  So here is my take on this Challenge. 
 I used regular card stock, and I did an ink resist of the flowers on the bottom and the birds up top.  I sponged Diamond Press Ink in green for the grass and sponged the sky in Ranger Tim Holtz's Stormy sky.  The stamp set and the Folder was a free gift when I purchased the magazine Simply Cards & Papercraft.  I love the tree embossing folder,  and stamps they beautiful. I will let you know I had a little problem with the Stamps and I had to re-ink it over a couple of times. 



 I then Colored the tree with Spectrum Noir markers.  I just followed the embossed lines from the folder.




I then took the die and cut out the little flowers for the tree.  After the flowers are cut I took the Spe…

Video Easter and Spectrum Aqua

Well with Easter coming I was asked to do a project with   Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers.  I am going to show you how to dye Easter eggs with  Aqua markers.  Now everyone knows how I feel about Crafters' Companion and Spectrum Noir Products and this is just one more reason why I LOVE them.  So many things you can do with these products.  Now let me mention this is only my 2nd video and this one I did with a voice over so that makes it my 1st.  Please everyone be nice, lol, and if there is a reason to look on the bright side every person I  have spoke to tells me it gets easier and, lol, I guess we will see about that. I would like to also mention that HSN is having a 24 hour Crafting Event on May 9th watch for some great buys, you can shop for Crafters' Companion and Spectrum Noir items anytime.  Thanks and Happy Crafting!
