Altered Paper Bags

 Hello Everyone,

Just got done with my design team project for Through the Craft Room Door. I worked with LeAnnes World 101 . I used two different hand drawn digital stamps. Both paper bags I covered with purple and blue cardstock to make a frame. I embossed over all the cardstock. I am just learning how to emboss with embossing powder. I colored with colored Zipgit colored pencils and glued the digital.

Picture Perfect Day

 Hello Everyone,

For this weeks design team project for Through The Craft Room Door I  decided to play a little with canvas, At first I had the digital Perfect Day from All Dressed Up Stamps on Etsy.  The stamp was so beautiful that I felt coloring it would wreck since I am not the best at coloring. So I brought out a black piece of cardstock as a frame around it. Then embossed a cute rose stamp around the cardstock to give it texture. My 6 year old was sorting out some of my stickers and I noticed one that I thought would go great with the digital stamp. The sticker was a puffy sticker that said "One Of A Kind". I thought perfect for this digital stamp. Then my next thought is what am I going to put this on. I decided on a canvas because I thought the lace and distressing the lace would bring more vintage charm to the piece. I also used that small rose stamp to emboss down the sides of the canvas to draw the flower pattern through out the piece and kept it the same green that was used in the sticker.

Altered Chess Board

So this week, I decided to try transferring the Sheepski designs Buttercups - image no 238. I try to make sure I am trying something I have never done before when making projects for the design team Through the Craft Room Door.  Well the first time with regular white glue it didn't turn out at all. The second time I tried to see if I could transfer the image onto it I used mod podge. Turned out to not be as visible as I wanted it. I decided to use maker to trace all that I could see. I want to use the blue frame and add Maremi Small Art butterfiles. I also added ugly buttons I colored with Apple Barrel paint. This design team project took me a total of 12 consecutive hours to make. Also recently reopened my own Etsy Shop My Hope Craft Shop.

Spring Is In The Air

 I am so ready for spring and summer to come. So for Through The Craft Room Door DT project this week I used a lot of purples, greens, and blues. First I used an unbranded stencil and textured the back of a old book cover. Then I added an old stamp that was damaged after 20 years of using it. I tore it off the block to reuse the block and used the lilac stamp as a textured piece. I used some purple, green and blue Apple Barrel paint. I glued on some pictures I found of my kids. Lastly, I distressed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink 1 Corinthians 13 4-8 Digital Stamp by Eureka Stamp It Up. Eureka Stamp It Up has quite a variety of wonderful digital stamps.

Peaches Playing Cards

 For my design team project this week for Through the Craft Room Door I choose to try some of the 52 Card Challenge with the digitals. The Sweet Sweet Peaches Digital came from Odd Ball Art. I did make a video on YouTube going step by step on how I made them because they would have taken me too long to write it all out.

Happy Birthday Card

 I don't normally make cards. So today I decided for Through The Craft Room Door design team project I would make a Birthday card for my mom. I used the digital Winnie Celebration 3 by Polkadoodles. First I colored her in mainly green and yellow because my mom is a huge packer fan. Then I picked out some green scrapbooking paper. I grabbed/glued some torn book page and food coloring dyed paper for in back of the digital. I glued the digital. I stamped Happy Birthday to napkin backing and mod podge it near the digitals feet. I may end up wanting to change that bit not sure yet. Lastly I added Stickles to add some other color than green and yellow.
