Christmas Card Swap

Hi all Erin here with some fun and easy card for a Christmas card swap I am doing this year.  Check it out!

All the cards have the same items on them except for the brad, that changed color and shape as the Eyelet Outlet pack was a variety pack of 12, so I still have 2 left!!  Working with a variety of 12x12 sheets of paper and cutting them up for layers is an easy way to use up what you have instead of having to go out and buy a ton of one paper pattern.  Here is my video tutorial on how to make these fun cards.

The Holiday Script Stamp set is perfect for this card where I just wanted an easy sentiment.

Here is the card with a gold ornament brad instead of the green one.

Time to start getting your cards ready, Christmas is just around the corner!!

Supplies Used
Brads - Eyelet Outlet
Enamel Dots - Eyelet Outlet

Angels Wings ATC

Hi all, Erin here. Art can be therapy, and this is what these ATCs are all about for me.  Not only for a friend who has had a loss, but also to still help me heal from the loss of my daughter.  This is why I craft everyday, to help heal.

These little cards are made with wings stamps from Paper Wings Productions, not only as a background for each card but also cut out on the embellishments

On the backs of each of the cards is the poem that was read at my daughter funeral, a very common poem meant for parents at the loss of a child.

Here is my full video tutorial, but I will warn you, I get a bit emotional on this one.  This whole process brought back so many emotions even after almost 8 years.  I will always miss my little Kristen, and moments like these really bring my feelings right back to the day she got her wings.

My love and hugs go out to all that have had a loss.  

Supplies Used
Ink - Stazon
Embellishments - Wings Embellishments 
Glue - Beacon Adhesives

Hello friends. Larissa here with you today. 

I grabbed the Frida Por Vida stamp set this morning and stamped one of the images on a piece of 110lb white cardstock. I colored the image using Copic makers. 

I found the perfect pattern paper in my stash and used it to cut a tag and for the background of the card front. I also matted the imaged piece as well as the card front on a piece of
 Stampin Up Ripple Raspberry cardstock. It matched perfectly. I added some black and white twine to the top of the tag and a couple of small navy blue banners. 

I love the way this card turned out. The colors make the image pop off the page. Don't you think? 

Thank you for stopping by today. Make sure to check back Friday and see what Erin has in store for you.

Have a wonderful crafty day,

Larissa Pittman

Fall Coffee Time

Hello friends. Larissa here and I am back with another card using my favorite Coffee stamp set.

 This time I am mixing it up again using the Halloween and Fall theme. I hope you are not tired of seeing these cups because these have to be my favorite set ever. You can do so much with them. I will link a few other post at the end in case you missed the other cards I have done with it.

So I started off cutting my cardstock to 3X6 and scored each at 3. It will make a 3x3 folded note card. I cut pattern paper and black cardstock and adhered it to the card front.
I stamped the coffee cup a few times on a piece of 110 lb white cardstock and then stamped a different image on each. I colored them all with Copic markers and highlighted here and there with a white Gelly Roll pen. After coloring the coffee cups I cut each one out and adhered it to the card front.

These cards are pretty simple to create. They only took me about 15 to 20 minutes. You could drop a Fall Flavored KCup Coffee or Tea in a clear small baggy and attach one of these note cards.

Bee Beautiful Mini Book W/ Video Tutorials

I am in a mini book phase, they are so fun to make and just a chance to try fun techniques and get my hands all paint covered!!!

My inspiration for this mini book was bees, I kept seeing a bee/bug and I thought Bee Beautiful, would be wonderful for a title and then I went with the theme of yellow and black.  From there it just took on a life of its own.  I used a ton of Tattered Angels paints and mists along with some various mediums with stencils from The Crafter's Workshop.  I then added in some fun background stamps from Paper Wings Productions to help enhance the feel of the book.  

Here is the first video which is filled with the cutting of the pages, mists, painting, stenciling, stamping, and a fun technique with the EZ Steam II material and glitter, embossing powder, and flower soft to add a great dimension and texture to the page.
From here I added in a few pictures of my little girl form this year, not many just there is room for more as the year goes along.  I also added in some fun bling, brads, and other little gems from Eyelet Outlet to enhance the entire effect.  I did not want to cover the pages up too much, I love the effect I got from all the mists, stamps, and stencils.
Here are some close up shots of some of the pages.
