Greeting Farm Tags

I received my new Greeting Farm stamps last week - the Spooky Kit and the last batch of Super Secret Stamp Club - woohoo!!  They are so super cute, we inked them up and started colouring right away.  So then what to do with those coloured images.  I haven't made tags in such a long time so I decided to pull out the manilla shipping tags and Tim Holtz Distress Ink and get dirty - hehe.

Here are my tags and Copic colours used to colour the images - to see them up close and more details please check out my youtube channel.

Little Blue Button Stamps - September Digi Release Today!

Today is release day for Little Blue Button Digi Stamps, and I am so excited to say that I am a member of the new Digi Design Team =)  Yah me!!

For this release I got the chance to play with the new digi stamp called Mixed Media - it is so cool, I decided to make a mixed media canvas.  I printed the digi out on some patterned paper and then coloured it up with my Copic Markers.  I printed a couple extra images of the flower that is in her hair so that I could colour them and shape them.  I layered it with hot glue to make a 3D flower in her hair and added some other flowers from Petaloo and Recollections all around. 

In each of the clusters I added some metal gears and embellishments and some mini dominoes and mini light bulbs.  

Here is the flower from the image that I made 3D and added some stamen coming from the bottom. 

In this close up you can see the sparkle and shine from the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays that I used on the background.  I started with an empty canvas and used a couple different stencils with some home made texture paste - really love how it turned out, the texture past soaked in the brown colours from the sprays and the purple and blue mica stayed around all the edges - so beautiful.

Check out my youtube channel for a close up look of the canvas.  
And definitely check out LBBS  to pick up your own digi's, and check out the blog for other DT members projects.

DT for Not2Shabby - Center Step Cards

For my DT project this week for Not2Shabby I wanted to try my hand at some center step cards. I love how they turned out.

My first card is with Bumble Bee Marci from LalaLand Crafts which unfortunately is sold out at the time and I also used some new LalaLand Crafts dies.  Lattice Doily Border and Lattice Border - they are awesome!

In both of these cards I used the Prima Something Blue paper collection and some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers which you can purchase at Jamie's shop.  Don't forget to use my coupon code "SARAH" for an additional 10% off your purchase - this code will only be available until the end of August and then Jamie will be re-introducing the free shipping codes.

My second card is with a CC Designs stamp which you can get in the Not2Shabby shop - Latte Kiki La Rue.  I stamped her out on watercolour paper and used my Tim Holtz markers - love them!!

Here is the Copic colours I used on Marci. 

And I just have to share how needy our cat Cheesecake was this weekend.  She would not get out of my craft space, but she is so cute!  She actually push her way right into the corner of my desk behind my tools.  And then when I had my laptop out trying to catch up on some YouTube videos then she pushed herself behind it which really wasn't that much space - crazy cat!

Happy Papercrafting!

Nature Mini in a Box

I was playing with some things that I found while I was cleaning up my craft room.  I found a couple of paper mache boxes with mini's inside so I thought I would dress one up!  I used the Green Stack from DCWV and coloured up Nutsy Kaylee for the outside of the box.  She is so super cute!!

I added some bling and felt flowers from the Michaels $1.50 bin. and sequin butterflies from my stash.

Here is a little sneak peak of the mini inside.  To see the whole thing please head over to my youTube channel for the whole mini.

Here are the copics that I used to colour Kaylee!

I was playing with the Twisted Kit from the Greeting Farm - again =) and came up with this super easy hidden surprise card.  When you pull the first tier of the cake you find Celeste - so super cute!!

It is a nice clean and simple card, I decorated with some old large sequin flowers that I found while I was cleaning up my craft room.  And the little metal tag and flower eyelets that came from the Eyelet Outlet.

I added some Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to Celeste.  Just love how she turned out.  Check out my youTube channel for more details and head on over to Not2Shabby for some awesome stamps.  Everything is still on sale right now for 15% off and if you use my GDT code "SARAH" you will get an additional 10% off - woohoo!!

Making Cards with Jonathan

Now that I have my craft room cleaned up and re-organized Jonathan and I are enjoying some crafting time together.  We decided to make cards using the 5th & Frolic Project Life cards.   The image is from Some Odd Girl - Photo Kaylee - one of my fav's.

I just realized that I didn't take a picture of Jonathan's card so you will have to check out my youTube channel to see how his turned out.  =)
