Twisted Kit Cards

Here is my 2nd project for Not2Shabby on Zibbet using the Greeting Farms Twisted Kit.  These guys are so super cute and I just wanted to do some boy birthday cards.  After doing so much girly stuff it is hard to figure out what to do.  I had to ask Jonathan if it was okay to add sequins to the boy cards - lol.

Don't forget the Twisted kit is on sale right now for 5% off - $45.60 and with my coupon you get another 10% off that price.  (SARAH)  Head over to the shop now to get your kit -  Not2Shabby!

Now for my cards.  Since I am decluttering right now I picked out some very cute boy paper.  And also a star spellbinders for matting the little boys.  The tag die is from MFT and then sequins from the dollar store.

Here is a little close up of each of the little boys.  One blond, one brunette and one red head =)

Here is the copic colours used on all the images.  As always if you would like a closer look please hit the link to my youTube channel on the right.

Happy Papercrafting!

I'm a Special Guest Designer...

for Not2Shabby on Zibbet!!  Yah me!!

Can you believe it - Jamie asked me to be a "Special" Guest Designer with the Twisted kit from The Greeting Farm.  Oh yah, super exciting.  And part of me being a Guest Designer means that you get a Coupon code for 10% off your purchase at Not2Shabby!  Your welcome =)

The Twisted kit is on sale right now for 5% off - $45.60 and with my coupon you get another 10% off that price.  And there are 16 stamps in the set so you are getting them for less than $3 a stamp - what a deal!  Each single image stamp stamps are $8 to $12 when purchased separately but these ones are not available separately.  I know, I'm an enabler =)

So, for my first project as a Guest Designer I have decorated these mini composition books that a dear friend gave me (thank you Irene!).  The little boy represents Jonathan and his love of camouflage, and the little girl represents Madison and her secret wish for dip-dyed hair.  Super cute!

They are so adorable!  I hope you enjoy them.  The paper used is from the DCWV Rock Star collection and the chipboard frames are from Recollections Vintage Collector.  The greetings are from the Twisted kit and white embossed on black card stock.

Here are the Copic colours used for each image.  I hope you head over to Not2Shabby and pick up this kit before they are all gone.

Happy Papercrafting!

Not 2 Shabby July Challenge - Summer Theme

Hi Everyone!

Jamie over at Not 2 Shabby is having a July Challenge.  You need to create a card with an image and a summer theme.  Jamie has awesome stamps, dies and flowers in her zibbet shop here!

Here is my card that I created using one of the images from the Twisted Kit which you can buy in her shop right now =)

Here is a close up of Celeste.  I just love her dip dyed hair - so pretty.  I added some paper flowers from my stash that I layered and added rhinestones to the centre.  The saying is from a Some Odd Girl stamp set.

Happy Papercrafting!

Greeting Farm Friday Challenge

Hi Everyone!

I saw this Fridays Farm Fresh Challenge and just had to play along.  The first thing that came to mind when seeing the colour palette was the Prima Madeline collection - perfect colours.  And the second thing that came to mind was my new Greeting Farm stamps!!  On friday I got some super happy mail and the Twisted kit was waiting for me to play with.  I'm so excited, there are some super cute images and awesome greetings to use.

Here is my finished card that I am entering into the challenge.  I just love how she turned out and the colours are a perfect match.  I gave her some ash blond hair and popped her up onto an embossed circle which is matted in black card stock.  I used the Hey Girlfriend! greeting and put it on a fish tailed banner.  Added in some blooms from Lavish Laces and some tiny Prima flowers from my stash and glittered everything up with some Stickles.  The little porcelain rose is from my crafty friend Cheryl - thanks Cheryl!!

The image was coloured with Copic (colours pictured below).  Hope you all head over to the Greeting Farm blog and join in on Farm Fresh Friday!

Happy Papercrafting!

Altered Journal

So excited to share a super cute project that I was working on today.  I altered the cover of a chipboard journal that I have had in my stash for quite some time.  I had picked it up at a scrapping garage sale at my LSS - Scrappin Great Deals.

I purchased this Penny Black stamp set called Tutu Sweet a while ago and have not had the chance to colour one of these cuteys up.  I found my water brush while I was cleaning up the other day so I decided to pull out some Tim Holtz Distress Markers and give it a try.  I absolutely love how it turned out.

I used some texture paste with a stencil on the background and splattered some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. Check out my youtube channel for a video detailing all the little pieces and colours that I used.

Here is a close up look to see all the detail in the colouring.  I really do like the distress markers for water colouring, it is super easy and so pretty.

Happy Papercrafting!
