Happy Pregnancy, it's a girl!

I made this card recently for a friend who is expecting a baby girl in June.

I used a wood mounted stamp I had in my collection for the Happy Pregnancy sentiment and picture which is a Micheal's $1.50 stamp.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I used Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder and used the Marvy heat tool to emboss that.   Then I colored in the image using B02 Robin's Egg Blue (Copic Marker) and used the Sakura Jelly Roll 08 White pen for the polka dots on the dress. I also used B02 Robin's Egg blue around the scallop oval shape which is a big punch from Marvy Uchida.

I used an embossing folder from Sizzix for the layer under the Happy Pregnancy stamp which I can't find in stock anymore. (Sorry!) and for the background I used a swirls embossing folder which I also can't find in stock.  Then I used Spun Sugar Distress ink on the swirl embossed background.

I used My Favorite Things Dotted Scallop Boarder Trio Die-namics. This set is retired, sorry I just use what I have sometimes.  There are similar products on the market.

Lastly for the "It's a Girl" sentiment I used a mini wood mounted stamp I had in my collection and I used the color box opaque pigment stamp pad in the color "Twilight" and I used Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder to emboss with my Marvy heat tool.   I then used the We R Memory Keepers Blue Power Punch Crop a dile 71273-2 to punch a small hole that is (1/16) inch.  Then I added some twine I found at the dollar store and adhered that on  using the Scotch Advanced Tape Gun. This is how I adhere all my layers.

You're Spectacular! (Orange Version)

Hello there, I've got another You're Spectacular card to share with you in another color.  As you can see I made several. This one is the last one for now.

 I used My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamp called "Guess who loves you?" (Sorry this stamp has been retired). I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  Then colored it in with spectrum noir and Copic markers.  I used TN7 for the hair (spectrum). I used YG17 Grass Green for the pants (copic). The glasses, shoes and polka dots on the shirt are YR07 Cadmium Orange(Copic)  The skin is E21 soft sun (Copic).  

The edges of the different layers are sponged using Candied apple distress ink.   The layers are made with My Favorite Things rectangle STAX set 1 Die-namics. For this I used the Big Shot machine.

For the sentiment I used the anti static powder tool before stamping the sentiment in memento tuxedo black ink.   The sentiment is a $1.50 Micheal's stamp I had in my collection from awhile back.  I used Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder and heat set that with Marvy heat tool.

Have you thought of your Valentine's Day projects with your kids yet?  If you answered yes keep reading and be inspired and see how you can get involved. If you answered no, starting thinking and keep reading for inspiration and info on how to get involved. 

I am pleased to inform you that this month there are two prizes as well.  There are two prizes up for grabs. Create a project with your child and share it on the Get Kids Crafty facebook page and use hashtag #getkidscrafty or share your project on Instagram and use hashtag #getkidscrafty.

 prize #1

Prize #2
Custom name crayons, pick up to 7 letters if you're the winner. 

Winners will be announced on next month's blog hop. So stay tuned!

Giveaway is International!

We  started off by using Lawn Fawn's road boarder die and cutting a bunch of roads using Micheals Recollections Black card stock.

As you can see Riley helped me run the die through the machine. He loves using the big shot and turning the handle. He kept saying lets make some roads. 

Then we took some yellow scrap paper and glued it on the back of the road to create the yellow lines and then I trimmed it down.

I cut down some blue card stock to create the card base and then adhered the roads to the cardstock for Riley to do the next step. 

Then I gave Riley some foam stickers that were buses, cars, trucks, tractors, tow trucks and airplanes. These are some of his favorite things so this was a big hit! So he added them to the roads. 


Then I created a super cute sentiment on word on the computer.  "Have a wheel great Valentine's Day!" And used some scrap paper to create a heart/banner for the different sentiment looks and adhered them to the card.  

Finally here is the finished product.  Hope you feel inspired by our project. Also hop on over to all the other blogs for more great projects.



Here are the links to the other projects in the blog hop

Happy crafting with your kids!

Happy Anniversary!

Happy New Year! The new year is in full swing and I have a anniversary card to share with you.

First I die cut the sky with Simon Says Stamp heart sprinkle trail die. Then I used Ranger clear ink pad and stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment from a wooden block stamp I had in my collection.  I then used micheals recollections white embossing powder and heat embossed it.  Then I took broken China distress ink to create the sky.  

Next I used My Favorite Things Grassy edges Die-namics and used mowed lawn distress ink on the grass.  

I stamped the bunnies in Memento tuxedo black ink from Lawn Fawn's upon a star stamp set. To color the bunnies I used BG6 & BG4 (Spectrum Noir markers) and for the bunnies nose I used RV13 Tender Pink (Copic marker) 

The base is sparkly white paper from micheals which gives the heart trail a shimmer like stars in the sky. 


Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I can't believe another year is coming to a close and a new year is here again.  Goodbye 2017, hello 2018!  I wanted to share with you today a Christmas & new year card I made.

I used a fireworks embossing folder I had in my collection and ran it through my big shot machine.  Then I sponged festive berries, salty ocean and chipped sapphire distress inks over the fireworks and in the sky. 

I added sparkles to the sky using the clear wink of Stella pen.  The sentiment in the sky is from Lawn Fawn's Here we go a waddling stamp set.  The sentiment and the foxes were stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  The foxes are from Lawn Fawn's upon a star stamp set.  The foxes are colored with 0R1 (spectrum noir marker) & YR07 (copic marker)


I hope you have fun ringing in the new year and may 2018 bring you joy and adventure.
