SHOPPING OUR STASH #432 - Hot Beverages for Cold Nights

 


Hello crafty peeps and welcome!

It's time for another challenge at 

SHOPPING OUR STASH!

This fortnight, as the title suggests, we are looking for projects 

that feature a hot beverage.

Here's what I came up with:

 
 
These coffee mugs were fun, and very therapeutic to color. No

shading, just coloring to color. (My inner child had fun!)

I used a stencil to emboss the aqua panel. I think that's the first time

I tried that out, and I like it. I'll be using that technique more. 

We hope that you'll play along in our Hot Beverages challenge

at Shopping Our Stash. For more inspiration, do yourself a favor

and check out what my teammies created. So much crafty goodness!

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!

Happy Haunting

 Hello and welcome!

I'm popping in with another card. Check it:


 
Here's the inside:

 
I colored these cute zombies while on vacation last month, and thought
 
it was high time to get them onto a card. I used papers from a
 
new (to me) paper collection and had fun piecing them together.
 
For a little extra something, I added Glossy Accents over their eyes.

 
That mottled, decaying green complexion is so popular this time of year! LOL!

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Christmas wreath

 Hello there, I'm back with another card:


 
Here's the inside:

 
It's hard to tell from my excellent photography skills, but the green paper I
 
used to cut the wreath from is pre-glittered, for some extra sparkle.
 
A simple sentiment finishes the inside.
 
Guess I should get off my butt and get some things done. LOL!
 
Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!

Man of the Moment

 Hello and welcome crafty friends! I've been up in the ol' craft room

creating some cards, and here is one of them:

 

...and the inside:

 
I used some metallic gold paper to emboss the back panel, using the
 
Brick Wall EF by Darice. I found this funny sentiment 
 
to cut out from the sheet and the fish DP from 
 
the same collection. Ooh! Shiny!


A snarky stamped sentiment on the inside and this card was done!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope that you have a great day!

Final day: STAMPlorations 7th Birthday Celebration

Happy Fri-Yay and welcome!

It's Day 5 of 

STAMPlorations Belated 7th Birthday celebration! 

 

 
Yesterday, I showed you how you can take a slimline sized
 
stencil to create an A2 sized card. Today, I'll show you how to use a 
 
standard sized stencil to create a slimline sized card:

It's pretty easy, but you need to use a stencil that has a
 
repeating design on it. Once I had my panel cut to size, 
 
 I used modeling paste to cover as much as I could of the panel

 
I removed the stencil and washed it, and left the panel to dry.
 
When dry, I placed the stencil back over the embossed part to line up
 
and covered the remaining part of the panel with modeling paste.
 
Once that was dry, I decided to get crazy and repeated these steps, but this 
 
time I used Glitz Gel over the embossed design.
 
It's hard to see, but there is SO much glimmer and sparkle on this card!
 
 
I wrapped some ribbon around the panel and used matching glitter

paper to frame it. The sentiment is one of the stickers from the

 
I used another one of the stickers on the inside:

STAMPlorations 7th Belated Birthday Celebration

 Hey there and welcome back!

It's Day 4 of the 

STAMPlorations Belated 7th Birthday celebration!


We've been partying all week and it's not yet over! LOL!

Here's what I created for today:

  [This post contains affiliate links. When you click on the STAMPlorations store link below and place an order, I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.]


 
I've made an A2 sized card using the Burst Slimline stencil
 
along with the Squares Flexi-Template.Using just the center of the
 
slimline stencil, I blended a few Distress Inks onto my card stock.
 

 This is a great way to get more mileage from your stencils! 
 
For the sentiment, I die cut a couple times and stacked the
 
Happy Birthday from the Everyday Sentiments word dies.
 
Super easy and I was able to use up some of my card stock
 
remnants in the making too! 
 
 

I hope that you will help us celebrate and join in the festivities!

Part 3: STAMPlorations 7th Birthday Celebration


 Hi there and welcome crafty friends!

It's Day 3 of the 

 

 I made a goofy Halloween card using a stencil in a different way:

 [This post contains affiliate links. When you click on the STAMPlorations store link below and place an order, I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.]

 
When I turned the
 
Abstract April Showers stencil upside down, I realized that the 
 
images kind of looked like ghosts. I decided to create a

fun panel, blending white pigment ink through the stencil, then adding

googly eyes to many of my 'ghosts'.
 
 
 All I added were a few strips of card stock and some glittery alpha stickers to 

finish my card!



I hope that you will help us celebrate and join in the festivities!

STAMPlorations 7th Birthday Celebration (part 1)

 Hello and welcome!

This week at STAMPlorations, 

we are celebrating the store's 7th birthday! All week! Yay!

And of course, what's a celebration without some prizes?!

 


 Here's a little something I created for today:

 [This post contains affiliate links. When you click on the STAMPlorations store link below and place an order, I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.]
 

 I've used the Wonky Stitched Grid Texture plate

for my background. I had colored the entire panel using powder dyes,

 but when I came back to check to see if it was dry, I had a big 

mud blob on one side. Grrr! But it turned out to be a happy

accident, as I just die cut another panel, and trimmed them both

to fit on my card base. The sentiment is one of the stickers from

the Happy Happy clear sticker set.

A few black rhinestones, and this card was done!

 

I hope that you will help us celebrate and join in the festivities!

Pink poinsettias

 Hello crafty peeps! This is my second post today. A Two-For!

I have another card to share with you:


 
and the inside:

 
The poinsettia/leaves stamps are NBUS items. I think I bought them
 
about a year ago, and this was the first time they saw ink.
 
I'm getting better at lining up these layered stamps. Only took me
 
three tries this time before getting a decent stamped flower! Yay me!

 
It's really hard to tell, but that (ancient) green paper has a very subtle metallic sheen to it,
 
and the holly leaves are all glittered up. I did add some gold Stickles to the
 
center of the flower for a bit more sparkle.
 
I'm entering this card at:
 

 

 
 
That's it for now. Thanks for visiting. I hope that you have
 
a wonderful day!
