Crazy 4 Challenges - Rubber Duckie Day

The Crazy 4 Challenges team are celebrating Rubber Duckie Day today with ducks on our cards.  If we don't have a duck think chickens, geese, turkeys, etc......well I have really stretched it to a squirrel.
I wanted to try out my Brusho color crystals again and use a new stamp set called We Must Celebrate.  I stamped the tree from Sheltering Tree and the squirrel onto watercolor paper.  I put a scrap piece of paper over the squirrel and sprinkled the crystals onto the top area of the tree.  I used my aquapainter to color some green in the grass area.


Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston Paper Pros - Tag You're It

It's time for Karen Burniston's Tag You're It challenge.  The team are to use tags in our creation today.  That's a very achievable challenge when you have a very fun die like Tag Book Pop Up.
 I used a new stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Hedgehugs for the front image and sentiment.  To get the black on his quills, after inking up the image with Chocolate Chip I used a Black Stampin' Write Marker to color just the ends and then stamped.
I adhered the Tagbook Pop Up into a 4 1/4 x 11 card base.  I stamped some more hedgehogs and fussy cut them out and adhered them to the tags.

Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Tag you're it

The Crazy 4 Challenges team are playing tag this week.....as in using tags in our creations.  The perfect die for this challenge is of course Karen Burniston's Tag Book Pop Up.
I stamped a sentiment from a set from Stampin' Up! called Remembering Your Birthday onto a tag.  I wanted more color behind the yellow so I adhered the yellow tag to a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock and hand cut to match the shape.  I had the cupcake stamps in my stash and they're colored using alcohol based markers.  Stampin' Up! is coming out with alcohol based markers in the new Ocassions catalog this January and I can't wait to try them out.
I added a few more cupcakes and ribbons on the inside.  All the die cut decorations are included in the set!  The Tag Book Pop Up is very easy to assemble and has so many different decorator dies that can be used even on a flat card (yes I said it - flat card LOL).

Happy Stampin',

Helping Me Grow and Brusho

I started playing with Brusho Color Crystals from the new Occasions catalog and they are so much fun!
I stamped the flower from Helping Me Grow onto Shimmery White cardstock with Versamark, covered with white embossing powder then heat set.  First  I wet the flower using an aquapainter and sprinkled it with Brusho.  Next I sprinkled Brusho on the background and used my aquapainter to blend the color.  I used a die cut from Sale-A-Bration called Celebrate You Thinlits for the greeting.

Celebrate You Thinlits and Brusho

I am using some new products today and one of them is called Brusho.  These fun super colorful Brusho color crystals will be available in the new Ocassions catalog on January 3, 2018.  

I spritzed water on Shimmery White card stock and then sprinkled on 3 colors of the Brusho.  To get the color crystals to react some more, I sprayed a bit more water.  After it dried, I used the new Celebrate You Thinlits in the Sale-A-Bration catalog to die the sentiment.  I kept the little negative pieces form the Shimmery White to put back into the words to create an inlaid die cut.  The more I play around with Brusho the more fun I have!

Swirly Scribbles - snowman

I used the Swirly Scribbles Framelits dies again, but made a snowman this time.  I used all 3 circles included in the die set to build my snowman.....now I'm singing that song from Frozen.  The hat and carrot nose is from Karen Burniston's Snowman die set.
