Banner Bash! HSS #107

Happy Tuesday! (Or, Happy Another Monday is now 6 days away!) Today is Hand Stamped Sentiment's Challenge Day and this week's challenge is: BANNERS!

I took banners over the top this time! Ha! I overestimated my space, but I still think it's super cute! It's a running joke among my friends just how super crazy and addicted I am to banners. Can't do a project with out them it seems!


 I adore this little Easter set. I almost didn't order it, but I am so glad I did! These little bunnies are just too cute!
 They were too big to stamp on the banner, so I just stamped part of them on. I think it worked beautifully! Who knew!

Stamps: Everybunny, Delightful Dozen
Ink and Paper: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Staz On Black
Other: Blender Pens, Scalloped Circle Punch (for sky sponging), Big Shot and Labels Framelit (for grass sponging), twine, Stampin' Dimensional, Tiny Hole Punch, Sponges



Get your Banner on in this weeks inspiration challenge!!

Celebrate! And, a new technique...

Hi y'all! I've got a new card today that features a really cool technique! See those flowers on the background? They look like rub-ons, don't they?
 Well, they're not! My friend Erin has a fab little video tutorial on her blog on how to do this. I saw her do it recently on her blog and I could not for the life of me figure out how she did it! I was so excited to see her tutorial and finally give it a try!


I also have lots and lots of layers on this card! The limes look like maybe they were pulled out of a Margarita, right? That's what I was hoping anyway!
Stamps: Tart and Tangy, Mixed Bunch,
Paper and Ink: Sweet Shop, Whisper White, Basic Grey, Lucky Limeade, Elegant Eggplant, Versa Mark
Other: Blossom Punch, Stick Pin, Scallop Grosgrain Ribbon,  Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Heat Gun,

This card was inspired by the sketch at Card Patterns and the colors at CR84FN.

Scrapbook Satruday!

I haven't had time this week to make a scrapbook page because I've been so busy getting ready for next week's craft fair. But, I do have some shadowbox pages that I made to sell to show you!
I found several of these "beauties" at Hobby Lobby recently. They are serving trays I think... And they were marked doen to like $3. I didn't know what I was going to do with them, but I bought them anyway.

I decided to turn them into a sort of scrapbook shadow bow to hang on the wall!

I did lots of scallops (Tasteful Trims and every red SU has).

I made a tag that has the heart from PS I Love You. The Crumb Cake back ground has the Fine Flourish stamped on it. Forever is from the Kind Thoughts set.

Lovely Letters and I {Heart} Hearts.

This tray was Old Olive in color, so I went with a pink and green layout.

This tray was really scuffed up and had some red marks on it, I guess from the other tray sitting down in it. I sanded off the edges with my electric sander and then went over it with a sponge and Soft Suede Ink.

I just love these little crown charms! Simple Adorned is on it's way out... I am sad. Hopefully SU keeps these little charms.

Also, yesterday, Erin Gonzales and I got together to photograph our projects for our upcoming Spring Fling Stamp Camp.
For the price of the stamp camp, you get the stamp set, the punch and a few other embellishments as well as a Sale A Bration pick! So, basically, the camp itself is FREE!

Pin Cushion Sweetness


 About a month ago, I signed up to do a craft fair. It's next weekend, so I have been feverishly doing all kinds of little projects. Kimberly Van Diepen made a beautiful pin cushion a while back, and I decided to try them for the fair.
 These little babies are so sweet! I just love them! I used Designer Series fabric and Tiny Tags. Pretty quick and very easy!
I added some little Twiterpated buttons too. So, how much would you charge for one of these? I'm so bad at pricing!!!!

Copycat

I saw THIS card on Pinterest recently and Fell. In. LOVE! I had to copy it for a workshop! It was simple enough for beginners, but also beautiful and involved enough for those who are experienced.

I did change it a tad because I wanted to feature stamps in the Occasions Mini catalog.  I used one of the flowers from the Mixed Bunch stamp set. The occasion is from Loving Thoughts.

 That cute little tiny embossed heart is from a new Embossing Sizzlet. Love these! The background was done using the Elegant Lines embossinf folder.
And who doesn't have enough chunk buttons in their life... I love my chunky buttons!
