Altered Projects …

20 Jun

Hello Friends,

I found some new stamps I wanted to get my hands on coloring them with my Copics – from Darcie’s, Stamping Bella & of course, little Tilda from Magnolia stamps. Aren’t they the most adorable images. So I made some bookmarks and tags this weekend that I could use and give away. I also used a Unity Stamp to make the flower bookmark.

I love these corner bookmarks so it doesn’t stick out of the book and rip in the process of using it. Nope, I didn’t come up with the idea – some other creative person did and here is her tutorial on how to make the bookmarks.

I also made the tags as a little cheat sheet for “sandwich” recipes for my vagabond – courtesy of Nancy’s contribution on the SplitCoast Stamper forums. The most useful thing in my craftroom to date!

Stay cool today and have a productive day!

Quick 30 Minutes Handmade Cards

9 Jun

What is better on a hot summer day and an ice cold slice of watermelon? An ice cold bowl of sweet cherries in an air conditioned room of course … yum!

Here is my sweet bowl of cherries colored with Copic markers in my air conditioned craft room. Thank goodness for modern amenities!

I had always only used my colorless blender to fix mistakes but this is the 1st time I am using it to draw the colors away from the bowl to create more highlights. I like how it turned out – I think the colorless blender is going to be my new best friend.

Stamps are from Unity Stamps Company. Copic markers used are R35, R20, BG72, BG75, 0. Scalloped square is punched using Marvy Uchida Extra Giga Scalloped Square punch. This is my less-than-30 minutes, quick and easy card.
