Hi! Thanks for joining us for the GIU blog hop, if you got here from Amy's blog then you're in the right spot. This is going up a bit late as I'm having major pc issues! So for the hop today, I'm showing you my massive project that I'm working on. I decided to make recipe books for a few people for Christmas and so I'm starting now. I'm using the Chilled Strawberry Soup set, I love it, it's super cute! I'm doing a few different cards into a single set. The set I'm currently working on use the strawberry, oven mitt and the heart.
I think that I'll end up with 20 or 30 of each card type per set. Such a huge undertaking. :-)
I hope you liked my project, don't forget to leave a comment, 2 commentators from the hop will win some Unity stamps. Thanks for stopping by, the next blog on the hop is Carisa.
So Kim over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps completely rocks and opened up a guest design team contest! I knew that I would actually have time to participate for the full month this time around and so decided to throw my hat in the ring. Here are the two projects I did. I kept it pretty simple and decided to focus on the stamps instead of doing a super detailed background.
The first stamp set I decided to use was Happiness is Reading. I kind of adore the little boy image in this set, he's so happy with his books and puppy!
I used papers from the Echo Park "That's My BOY" Collection. They worked so well with this stamp.
The second image I decided to use was Look for Rainbows. She's so cute, sassy and has great sentiments!
I used papers from the Heidi Swapp "Favorite Things" 6 x 6 paper pad for this card. I also used a clear Wink of Stella marker on the umbrella. The studs are glittered and are from the Imaginisce iRock line.
Both images were colored wit…
So I've been creating a lot with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Here's a card I did with the Make a Splash stamp set for the anything goes challenge on the Kraftin' Kimmie blog.
This was colored with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor markers. All papers are from the Basic Grey Prism collection. I've been hoarding my Basic Grey papers but decided that this collection was perfect for this project.
It's hard to see in pictures, but I coated her jacket and rain boots with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic after stamping it on pattern paper. Once it was dry, I fussy cut it and added it to the colored image. I love how it looks like a real rain coat and boots!
