Happy Daisy Hello Card

This is an easy card as I used the Hero Arts daisy stamp which I have had for a long time.  I think I even got it on sale some place a long time ago.  I colored the stamp with brush tipped markers and stamped it on a piece of lined loose leaf paper.Image I printed the hello banner on the computer and cut it to size. I also colored the sides of the paper with Ranger Ink in a blue/gray color, tied a simple cord on the top and it is ready to send to a friend.

Think spring with a mixed media board!

The theme for the month of March is Going Green at Scrapbook Cove in Stonington, CT.  I designed a  small mixed media board using old book pages, scraps to cover the bird and paper bag shreds for the nest. I will be teaching this class in March.  Should be fun! Happy crafting!IMG_0447

Happy Everything!!

Today was a perfect day to play with paper and ink.  I have had this Hero Arts stamp Happy Everything for a long time and never found a project or technique to use with it.  I white embossed the stamped image, heat set it and then inked the background in blues and greens.  I cut out the word banner and attached it over the stamped image.  I liked the way it came out and it s happy everything type of card.  Hope to enter it in the current Hero Arts contest.  Happy Stamping!

January is a great month to get crafty.

IMG_0413I got a wonderful craft box from my daughter for Christmas and it was a scarf printing/stamping kit  from Brit+Co. The kit included a jersey knit scarf, fabric paint, a small foam brush, a sheet of sticky foam to create your own stamp and a wooden block for the sticky foam paper.  I had plenty of my own solid image large stamps and some mini bottles of fabric paint.  I created my own pattern and colors and stamped away. I learned in the process that the painted stamp does only needs a minimal amount of paint to create a nice stamped image.  What a great gift and stamping project.  Attached is my finished stamped scarf. I love the way it looks.

Happy New Year calendar creation

2015 calendar pagesEvery year I create a new calendar to share with friends and use at home.  Every printed page is embellished with a stamped image for every month. This year I decided to try something different and used some images from My Favorite Things stamps.  After creating an original I added glitter glue and pearlized accents.  Check out my newest creations.
