You're Dyn-O-Mite


Hello friends, wow that Mother Nature sure keeps us on our toes, we got another blast of winter, about 3 inches of snow.  Still snowing right now as I type this.  I do believe it might be getting lighter out though.  Anyway back to my card here for the month challenge over at One Crazy Stamper.  I have so much fun with "Your Next Stamp", stamps are awesome, and make me smile.  This little one is for my great nephew who is turning 8 on Wednesday.  I used a dot embossing folder and added a window die to some funky Bazzil pattern paper, popped my image up with some craft foam, and added the sentiment.  I hope you get a chance to stop by One Crazy Stamper and check everything out there.  Lora always has a wonderful supplies in her store as well.  Till next time, get your craft groove on!  Cheers!

Your Amazing

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  My card is for the fantabulous challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Today our friend Lori is hosting it and wants to see "Gingham" on our projects.  I had some ribbon but it didn't match my pink and brown.  I have used my Stampin' Up stamps and the MS border punch was fun as well.  The flower I cut out twice and popped some of the petals up using foam tape.  
I hope you get a chance to enter the challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Till next time, happy crafting!

Water Color Paper Background Tutorial

Thanks friends for stopping to see my tutorial I am doing for One Crazy Stamper.  So here we go. Water Color Paper Background Tutorial
I used Distress Ink, Water, Water Color Paper, Versafine Ink, Stamps, Non-Stick Craft Mat, Water Pen/Brush.
I took my small ink squares and wiped them across my craft mat in a random order, and then spritz water over top of the ink.
Took my Water Color Paper and smooshed it into the ink, and carefully lifted off and let it dry.
In this second one I did it the same, however I used my water pen/brush before it dried and swiped over the ink random like to make more color on the bottom.
The first one I added some grass, flower, and bird stamps, along with a sentiment, tried to keep it clean and simple so you can see the back ground better.
This last card, I added a bit more stamps, but you can still see the how the ink soaked into the paper and makes a unique background.  I hope you liked my tutorial and I hope can try making your own backgrounds, water, ink, water color paper.  Happy Crafting.

Berry Sharing

This was fun making this card using the Stampendous Stamp called Berry Sharing.  I used some fun pattern paper and a embossing edge border folder.  I colored my stamp up using copic markers, and added some craft foam to popped it up somewhat.  I also added some rhinestones.  I hope you get in to your craft room and create something today.  Pop on over to One Crazy Stamper we are having another fantastic challenge, and awesome prizes as well.  Thanks again for stopping here.

 Thanks friends for stopping here today, my card I am sharing with you today is for the fun challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks, our dear friend Tamie is hosting it today.  She would like to see some "Friendship" on our project.  
The rectangle die cut I won was my focal point on my card and wanted to use my new stamps and my "you" word die as well.  

My friend Tamie is laughing as she sees this card, as I dislike most green color.  She thinks I maybe starting to like it, maybe for her I will.  I used an embossing folder as well as added some swirl bling.  I hope you get a chance to play over at 4 Crafty Chicks with Tamie's challenge.  Till next time Happy Crafting.
