Create Craft Share YouTube Hop

Good Morning Creative Friends,
Welcome To Create Craft Share YouTube Hop.  

Our theme this month is to create anything using the word "THANKFUL" on it.  So I decide I would make block letter for my mantel.  I started out by using card stock from my stash. Each paper was cut down to its proper size, glued, sanded, and ink using various color of distress inks. I then  use some clear embossing powder on the letter so that I could ink it with distress ink and give it a resit look using Peachy Keen background stamp . I then stamped and die cut Boughs of Holly by My Creative Time so I could add them to my letters along with twin and pearls.  I love how this turned out. 

 Here's My Video 


Here's a sneak peek of my project for those of you who don't have time to watch my video but will be back to watch later.  lol I hope you would.  I also have a prize I'm giving away at the end of the video. So be sure to watch to find out what it is.

Good Morning Creative Friends & Welcome To Mark's Finest Papers November blog hop. Today we have a fun set just in time to warm you up for this winter weather.  =) This set is a favorite of mines. I love anything coffee. If you visit my blog often then you see my first card already.

I stumbled upon this card by accent. My card base was for another card but I inked it in black soot and ya that didn't turn out right. So I had this setting on the side till I see a chalk-board look and thought yes!! So I did some coloring using copics, I use white embossing powder and my painters big brush for the stitching. 

For my last card I thought I would give inking another try along with heat embossing. And I must say I love love this card. The gold and brown together  is beautiful.  For the coffee rings and sentiment I use a the new stamp set Java Time  by MFP Stamp Shop. For the coffee beans I use MFP Stamp Shop "Oh Beans" stamp set.

Altered Composition Notebook

Good Evening Creative Friends,
First Happy Friday To You All!!!

Today I wanted to stop in and share a fun altered composition notebook with you all. I made this for a friend in one of the Facebook groups I'm in. Each month we do monthly swaps that we mail out by the end of the month. And because my friend has received her swap already and share it I'm able to share it with you all today. Which I'm super excited about because this was so much fun to make. I even did a video for you!!  My swap person is into shabby chic creations. So I was excited to give this a style a try. I love all things vintage but had yet to try shabby chic. When i Google shabby chic I found that it was similar to vintage but with lots of light colors, pearls and lace. So I thought I would give it a go. Over all I love how this turned out and was so very happy that my friend loved it as well. I used mostly items from Hobby Lobby. The pears and roes is from Prima, I used some form Thickers with the Wink of Stella glitter pen, ribbon from Micheal's, Tim Holtz distress inks and the rest being from The Paper Studio.

Now if you would like to see just how I created this notebook be sure to watch the video below.  I hope you all have an awesome day!!!

Let's Do Coffee

Good Morning My Creative Friends

Happy Monday to you all. I'm here to day to share a sneak peek of a soon to be release stamp set by MFP Stamp Shop. If you haven't seen this yet Mark's Finest Papers is now MFP Stamp Shop. You can find their blog HERE and purchase their stamps HERE. So this stamp set were release starting next week on November 25, 2014 has some fun coffee images using this beautiful pattern you see on the cup.  So I stamped the cup onto a die cut by My Creative Time. Colored the image in using copic markers. 

You may be wondering when I got these copic well I order the Ann. edition  I believe early this month. I found that it was a waste of time buying other brands that didn't last as long as copics. Anyway my background is done using  black soot distress ink. This was a happy mistake. I was originally using this background for another card which you see next week during the MFP Stamp Shop release.  I didn't care for the image against this card base and thought well this looks like a chuck board look. All I did was swipe the pad against the paper. I finish this card using my Faber Castell pitt pen in white to make stitches and white embossing powder to the sentiment. 


Well Have An Awesome Day Crafty Peeps!!

ART

Good Morning Creative Friends
I wanted to stop in and share a card as well as more information on "My Color Is Beautiful Art" class. Registration has begin  and you can hop on over to Tiare Smith Designs site by CLICK HERE to begin your registration. I can say I'm super duper excited because I have a seat in this class and I can't wait. Thank you to the 8 amazing ladies for a chance to join them in this class. I hope to see some familiar faces in the class as well. 


Now I thought I would share this super cute card. This card was created for a swap. The theme of our swap is anything go.  I wanted to step outside of the norm of Holiday cards, flowers, and birthdays. You know the same card subjects.  So I decide to make a card that could go to a crafty friend or someone you who is all about art. I started out by search all of my MFP Stamp Shop  stamps and came across this fun stamp called "Works of Art" which is part of MFP Stamp Shop oriental line. This set has a beautiful flora branch and oriental word art and sentiments. I started out by heat embossing the word art and sentiment in gold embossing powder. I line the word art panel in black and add some gold flower sequins to complete my card. I tried the cupped sequins and found that they weren't as nice as the flower sequins were. Over all I love the look. 



Okay before you go  I wanted to share one more class I learned that Tiare is having another class coming up in 2015 called My Amazing 2015 Goddess Calendar . If your thinking about creating a calendar this year and need to know where to start,  find ideas, tips, and more be sure to join Tiare at Tiare Smith Design
