Penny Black, Loads of Love

Hello Happy Crafters!  Today is my turn to post on the 7 Kids College Fund Store Blog. I was going to do this card over but ran out of time.   I did have had a lot of fun creating it and got my inspiration from a fellow designer, Mackie Robertson to try mix media! So here is my first try at it. First, I air brushed the sky with copics - they're a little bit darker in person.  I spread Crackled Texture paste onto the crocodile stencil. It is so cool the way this stuff works!! It literally cracks as it dries! The texture stones were airbrushed with Copic markers. I must say - I enjoyed doing it. I think if I did this scene again, I would add some trees in the background to give it a little more umph! 

Supplies:
Penny Black Loads of Love
Crocodile Tim Holtz Layered Stencil from Art Gone Wild
Crackled Texture Paste by Wendy Vecchi by Dreamweaver
Metal Palette Knife from Multicraft Imports
Mini Pop Dots from All Night Media
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink 
Neenah Solar White Paper
Score Tape
CuttlePillar Pro ABS



Don't forget about our challenge which is "Anything goes" this week!

Just A Note - Your Next Stamp

Today, sitting here looking out the window and wishing we could just have a few days in a row without rain. So I am sitting here pretending I am on a warm, sunny beach with crystal blue water reading a book with the sun shinning down on my face. A girl can dream, right? LOL

It is time for another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge and it's your favorite theme - Anything Goes!

Starla, C.C. Designs



Hey it's Friday! This is a very special day for it's my mom's birthday and she is 89 years young! She still drives, grocery shops, lives alone and one of the most independent person I know. She's my best friend and it's hard for she lives in Arizona and I in Maryland. I go and visit her 2 -3 times a year and stay a few weeks each time I go. You would love her as much as I do if you had the opportunity to meet. 

Well, today is my turn to post a card in C.C. Design Blog and I chose Super Hero Starla to use today. BTW if you love super hero stamps, you need to check out this month's release at the store for it is loaded with boy and girl super hero's with dies to go with the set. 


Happy Weekend!

Twila, C.C. Designs




Today I am showing Twila, a rubber stamp from the C.C. Designs new July Releases! This is the first time I really used my Copic Airbrushing and really like the way it turned out. For the stars I took a stiff brush and dipped it into the Copic Opaque White and flick the brush over the paper. I added Stickles to her dress and boots. Everything on this card is from the new release including all the die cuts.

    Sugar Pea Designs - Spare Me

    There is still a week left to play in the  7 Kids College Fund  challenge!  So come on over and join the fun! 

    I think we all have had those times, where we might have said or did something we wished we didn't say or do.  We really want to apologize and search for the words to say were sorry.  Well, this cutie stamp set from Sugar Pea puts a little bit of humor into it for us!  I love it! Saying your sorry, but trying to make them smile at the same time. The card that inspire me was created by Mary from Sugar Pea Designs design team - her blog - : http://maryjdesigns.blogspot.co.uk.  I just love this image with this sentiment and had to recreate it myself! There are several other sentiments in the stamp set - Let the good times roll, Your right up my ally, Strike up some fun, Your a great roll model, and more! You could even put "I forgot your birthday, sorry for being such a pin head!  Perfect!

    After I cut out the pins, I coated them with Versamark Ink Pad and embossed with Clear Super Fine Embossing Powder from Ranger, which gave them a sturdiness to stand on the lane. 





    Supplies
    Copic Markers

    Don't forget to come play at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge!
    The theme this time is "Anything Goes"

    Crafty Individuals - Feathered Friends

    Happy Wednesday! I would like to invite you to join our bi-weekly 7 Kids College Fund Challenge! Come see all the designers awesome creations and enter one of your own to win a $20.00 gift certificate. There is a catch though - you must use an image or stamp that is sold at 7 Kids College Fund Store. There are so many stamp companies including Stampendous, C.C.Design, LaLaLand to name just a few. 

    Today, I choose to use Crafty Individuals - Feather Friend to color and create a card which was fun and easy to create. I dab the middle of the flowers with Stickles to add some sparkle!  



    Supplies

    Die Cuts - Memory Box
    Copic Markers for coloring
    Cutterpillar Pro ABS 

    I would also like to brag about one of my new paper cutter from 7 Kids! I purchased the Cutterpillar Pro ABS several months ago and love, love this cutter. It cuts the paper so smoothly - you never have jagged or rough edges no matter how fine of the cut. The back lighting allows you to see exactly where you have the paper lined up to trim, which is another plus! You don't have to worry about the blade going dull - "The CutterPillar's two-blade mechanism allows the rotary blade to pass against the stationary blade at the edge of the cutting surface, much like a pair of scissors.  This helps keep the blades sharp.  In fact, we have found that our cuts actually become cleaner and more precise the more we use our CutterPillars."


    I would definitely buy it again!
