New Sprays

Hello everyone!! Its almost Halloween and I fall is finally in the air. The past couple of days have been wonderful weather. I have felt very motivated to craft this week and use some new goodies I got. I bought a couple new Heidi Swapp sprays and they are beautiful!! 




So I made three different cards using the sprays.

This card I used the white spray. You cant really see it in the first picture but you can see it better on the second one. The spray adds a beautiful sparkle to your cards.

On this card I used the coral along with peach and mustard.

Last but not least on this card I used the citron.
All the colors are wonderful and I have had fun playing with them. If you havent got your new colors stop by COOL SCRAPBOOK STUFF in Poway and pick it up while there still in stock! Have a great Halloween.

They were calling my name...

Hello all!!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful October. I just love the fall and all the changing of the colors. I love this weeks case study! The card is beautiful and was so inspiring to me. I was at the store and saw these birch tree straws and new they would be perfect for this challenge. What can I say they wanted me to buy them. This challenge is Case Study  and was lots of fun so you should check it out! Here is the card for this week.

and here is my take on the card

I love love love the way this card turned out. What about those straws??? AWESOME!
I used Martha Stewart glitter on the edges. The sentiment and twine are SRM and they look perfect on the card. I hope you enjoyed.

Happy Crafting

Sweet Cards

Hello Friends! Where did September go!! I cant believe it is already October, the year is flying by. Well I am very excited to be guest designing for Sweet Stamp Shop today. I love the stamps and always have lots of fun making cards with them. If you love to stamp you will be salivating over all the different stamp sets they have. I used two different stamp sets for my projects and both of them are beautiful! I hope you enjoy my crafting creations.

                    

For the sweet jars I decided to use a SRM glassine bag and color with my distress inks, which I wouldn't recommend. I would use an alcohol ink so it stays on your bag unlike the distress ink will eventually rub off.

                

I Like using stamps in a way you wouldn't normally expect. I wanted to use the building as a background stamp instead of using it just as a building. I think using a stamp in different ways makes it more versatile. I do like the stamp as a building but i wanted to do something different. I used Hero Arts Shadow Inks and I am in love with them. They are such beautiful colors and blend well together.

               

I thought I would share some bonus cards with everyone!


I hope you had fun looking at my projects and feel inspired to go make your own wonderful cards. If you haven't checked out Sweet Stamp Shop you should stop by and see all the fun stuff they have. You can also go to their blog for more fantastic ideas plus tips and tricks. Have a wonderful rest of the week!
