Kitty Bee Designs - Definitely Tea Panda

Hello! I'm over on the Kitty Bee Designs blog today sharing a card using this adorable little Kitty Bee Designs Definitely Tea Panda digi stamp! It is finally spring here in Alberta (this week anyway ;) so I'm definitely in the mood for some bright spring colours. And, being a tea-lover this was a super easy image to have fun with! I used a pretty pink polka dot paper that was included in last month's Sampler Kit from Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine and then layered on some sweet papers from Your Next Stamp.


I coloured this cutie up with Jane Davenport Magic Wand coloured pencils and added some white gel pen highlights before cutting her out with a stitched die. The sweet little sentiment from Your Next Stamp worked perfectly heat embossed on black cardstock with white powder! Don't be afraid to pull out other stamp sets you have to combine them with your digis. I added a few pretty SpiegelMom Scraps sequins and a cute cork heart to finish it off.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the Kitty Bee Designs shop to see all the sweet images available as well as the Kitty Bee Designs blog for much for inspiration!

Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew Canvas!

Whew, that's almost a tongue twister! Well, I'm so happy to be on the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew again this year!! They are an amazing family owned company and have a wonderful assortment of products. Definitely a dream to be on their design team! Every year the DT gets to create a 4x4 canvas using the beautiful products from CCB - which include Tattered Angels, 7gypsies and Canvas Corp Brands. These 4x4 canvases represent each DT member's unique style. One thing I love about CCB is that they don't want everyone fitting into the same box and they celebrate the different talents that each person brings to working with them. This year I wanted to start with a beautiful rub-on from the 7gypsies Architextures Pose Rub-ons. These rub-ons are sooo super cool! They are meant to look like a vintage stamped image, and you can use them on numerous surfaces. I wanted the beautiful texture of the natural canvas to show through so after I applied the face rub-on I used various Tattered Angels translucent Mists to paint in my face and background.


I used some of the 7gypsies Architextures Short Base Doily Stickers (a wonderful product you can use as a stencil, a sticker, you can alter....) to the corners of my canvas and glued on a pretty Little Birdie Crafts butterfly.


I used one of the gorgeous 7gypsies Architextures stickers and added a rub-on sentiment. This girl stickers was a Michaels Exclusive! Some Little Birdie Crafts glitter was glued around the canvas for a little more sparkle.


These pretty canvas flowers from Little Birdie Crafts were just perfect to spray with the Tattered Angels Mists. I added touches of gold to the leaves as well and layered them on the canvas.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! You can find the link to all the Crew's fantastic creations HERE, and just by clicking on the 4x4 pics you can find your way to each person's blog. You might just discover someone new to follow, and a lot of great inspiration!

Kitty Bee Designs #116 - Rain Rain Go Away!

Hi Friends! I hope you've been having a lovely week so far! I've had lots of fun creating projects lately and here's one more for you!  It's time for the midweek inspiration for Challenge #116 over at the Kitty Bee Designs Challenge Blog - Aloha Friday!

Challenge #116
Rain Rain Go Away!

Super big thanks to our sponsors for this challenge
Oddball Art Co.
and

Sparkle N Sprinkle



I'm sharing a sweet little rainy day digital image - April Showers from Sparkle N Sprinkle on this lovely spring card today! I used my Jane Davenport Magic Wand colouring pencils to colour the image and then cut it out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die. A little foam tape gives the focal image some dimension after layering it on pretty My Mind's Eye, BoBunny and Your Next Stamp papers - all edged with Distress Inks. The pretty MME flower brad and a couple butterfly confetti's with gems add to the spring feel. I found the perfect rainy day sentiment to add from a Pretty Cute Stamp set!


I added details to the boots and umbrellas with gel pens and used blue Stickles to add glittery highlights to the raindrops.


Inside, I used another sentiment from Pretty Cute Stamps and a third butterfly confetti embellishment.

SpiegelMom Scraps - Tea Party Pocket Page Layout!

Hi friends! I hope you're having an awesome week! I wanted to share a pocket page layout I posted on the SpiegelMom Scraps Instagram feed last week using photos of my girls having a lovely tea party. Our theme this month is 'recycling' and 'flowers' so I chose to use lovely flowery prints from the Maggie Holmes Bloom paper pad along with amazing vintage pieces from the 7gypsies Architexture Enjoy Stash Paque, including pieces taken right from the packaging - which is one of the cool things about the Architextures products!


I printed a couple cards directly from the Project Life app and used some tea stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps to decorate them along with the beautiful SMS sequins. I love when you find tiny flowers in the sequin mixes!


This vintage tea pot and cut from the Stash Paque is so lovely. I also used some of the 7gypsies Architextures Tall Base Swirls on this card, which are dimensional stickers you can cut, colour and layer!


I used some alphabet dies to cut out the 'TEA' from a diecut piece of the packaging and added some 'party' stickers included in the Stash booklet.


Here's a look at the lovely SMS sequin mixes I used for this layout - Hello Colorful You, Vintage Spring and Sunflower Fields.

Emerald Creek Craft Supplies - April Flower Card and VIDEO!

Hello! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend! We had a couple birthday parties that the girls celebrated with friends, and Sunday we spent doing some spring cleaning. And, of course, some relaxing and crafting 😉 I'm back today to share a card for the Emerald Creek Blog, and this month our 'Dare Challenge' theme is Flowers (check out the link at the bottom to find out how to enter your own Flower project for a chance to WIN!) Spring is a little late coming to Alberta, but crafting with flowers makes me feel better! I chose to work with the gorgeous Vintage Timepiece Stamp, which has some beautiful flowers on it and I went with a rusty orange and patina blue colour scheme that could work for a feminine or a masculine card.


A coating of the Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture Embossing Powder over the embossed timepiece image creates a lovely texture!


The metal embellishments turned out so cool after they were heat embossed! It's fun to try embossing powder on all types of surfaces!


Inside, I added a Pretty Pink Posh sentiment and a stamped flower embellishment using the Emerald Creek Carnations Stamp, repeating the stamp on the envelope to coordinate them.


Here is a link to the Process Video where I show you all the steps I used to create this card, or watch below-
