Fun in the water

I used Kreaxions Punch #906 along the bottom of the stones to give a ragged look and also used it right under the photo. Added some beach accents to finish it off.

Winter in July

This is for a challenge on the Smoothfoam blog. I received the Smoothfoam in my box of goodies from The Robin's Nest.

I made this wall hanging using 2 pieces of Smoothfoam, one size 8”x 1” and the other 6”x 1”.

I started by decoupaging the “Winter Retreat Swirl” paper from The Robin's Nest onto the 8”x 1” smoothfoam. Once that was dry I cut the 6" x 1" in half with an electric knife and then tore it in pieces and glued in onto the paper to make it look like a hill. Once that was dry I used my homemade molding paste (4 Tablespoons baby powder, 2 Tablespoons gesso and 1 Tablespoon mod podge and mix it all together) and put that on my hill. I added some glitter to make it sparkle.

I used Tim Holtz sizzix die to cut out the houses at the top and backed with black paper, the trees were made with a pine tree die to cut out the Christmas trees with a little white paint on the branches.

The 2 solid boys and sled were cut using my Cameo while the two boys, snowflakes and word “snow” were rubs called “Snow” from The Robin's Nest that I on stuck on cardstock and then cut out.

I used the Ace of Diamond Dew Drops for an additional snowflake look. I used a punch to cut out some additional snowflakes that were layered and used on the front.

Finally, I took some of the leftover paper, ran it through my crimper and glued that along the sides and to finish it off punched some smaller snowflakes from the rest of the leftover paper and added those to the side.

Please head over to the Smoothfoam blog and check out other beautiful items.

Happy Birthday Card

My turn at Just Imagine Crafts and I used two Kreaxions punches to create this card (Punch 910 and Punch 901) added some pearls to highlight the punches a little more. I made the flowers using pages from a book, adding a little ink and water and some smooshing.

Take some time to check out the store and all the wonderful items they have.

Colonial Michilimackinac

My first post is up as DT at The Robin's Nest. I loved working with their products.

I used the “Blue Stars on Red” paper as the background.

The holes in the black cardstock were punched out using an EK Success punch and then the holes were filled in using the Hillside Mini Dew Drops and since I hate to throw anything away the left over black circles were added to the white cardstock.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the hat and the cannon. I made the cannon balls from a small hole punch.

The red and white ribbon along the side just seemed to tie it all together. The blue paper is Blue Awning Glitter but I used the backside of it.

The flowers were made using teal and blue tissue paper and some pattern paper, used Pistachio Archival Seeds for the center of the flowers. I layered the flowers first and then scrunched them up, once I had them the way I wanted I glued them all down and scrunched one more time.

I used a “Layered Flourish-Chloe” swirl and wanted it to look like smoke swirling so I embossed it with white pigment ink then added white embossing powder.
