You're Turtley Awesome

Hi crafty friends! Today is inspiration Monday over on the La-La Land Crafts blog with an "Anything Goes" theme. I decided to use the Circles Galore and mix it with the Hey Chum Stamps. Listed below are the colors I used as well as links to the products :)


I started out randomly stamping the circles using blues and green inks for an abstract type of look. I splattered some of the ink as well. The result was an ocean like feel so I decided to color the little fish and turtle from the Hey Chum stamps using Copic markers. I cut them out using the coordinating dies. 


I cut both layers using the Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangles Dies. For a finishing touch I added some sparkly gems.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you will click on the links below and check out the amazing stamps and dies at the La-La Land Crafts shop. Have a great day :)

Spellbinders Be Merry Collection

**For the Newton's Nook August Release please scroll down or click HERE 

Hi everyone! Today I have some Christmas cards to share featuring amazing stamps and dies from Spellbinders! I didn't have much time to craft in July since I was teaching summer school. So I'm making up for it now in August! Links to the products I used are down below. 


For my first card I used the Holiday Gnomes stamps. They are SO CUTE!!! I stamped, embossed and colored up the images using Copic markers. I stamped and embossed the trees using Distress Oxide inks. The background was fun to create also using Distress Oxide Inks. The snow was cut using the Colorblock Landscape die (June small die of the month) and white glittered cardstock.  


I splattered some water and white paint for the snow effect in the background. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment.


For my second card I used the adorable Chill Bear Etched Die. This set is so much fun to play with! The bear is just the cutest. I cut it out using white cardstock and added a little shading with Copic markers. The snowy landscape is cut from the same Colorblock Landscape Die and glittered cardstock. 


I ink blended the sky using Distress Oxide inks and splattered some shimmery silver spray for snow. My favorite part of the card was using my new Glimmer Hot Foil System and adding the foiled sentiment to the center of the card. It really adds so much and looks amazing!! The sentiment is part of the Be Merry Collection and is from the Gifts of Christmas Sentiments Glimmer set.
