Father’s day gift

I knew as soon as I saw the Buzz & Bumble paper that this would make a great Father’s Day gift.  I had been wanting to design another frame so this would be perfect.  Unfortunately it is hard to crate something and keep it a secret from my husband since he often pops into the craft room.  So he got one of his Father’s day gifts early….

Fathers day frame

To create this frame I used the My Creations Bracket Frame Z1797, Buzz & Bumble paper pack X7164B, Honeycomb stamp set C1537,  and Burlap ribbon Z1760.  I used the spellbinders tear drop die to make the rosette. I used my Silhouette to cut the letters and hexagons.

Hope you enjoy~  Cat

Halloween Banner

I absolutely love this time of year!! I love fall and winter (yes I do like the cold and snow).  The holidays are always so fun and festive.  One of my favorite holidays it Halloween.  I aways decorate the first of October and we generally have a pumpkin carving party just before Halloween. This year I have been able to crate a couple decorations. I was very excited how my banner turned out. I used the CTMH banner. Moonlight paper pack, smokey plum, gold rush, and slate card stock.

On the Moonlight paper I added a little sparkle by applying lavender Stickles to the purple swirls. On the smokey plum, I stamped the banner with the ghost from the Creepy Creature stamp set.  I then used a blender pen and the colonial ink to make them pop. I then used orange Stickles to the pumpkin.  On the slate banners I used a bat stamp that I had.  I then stamped some on smokey plum cardstock and cut them out and used pop dots to make them stand out. I used the gunmetal Stickles to give them a little bling. And for the ends I used a web stencil I had and went over it with the gunmetal Stickles.  The spider I cut out using my Silhouette and added some crystals for the eyes.

Stamping Techniques

Ever wonder how to stamp three dimensional elements with stamps? Check our this great video as it shows you how easy it is to do with My Acrylix stamps.

Now that you see how easy it is don’t you want to give it a try. Just think of the possibilities you could crate using the My Creations recipe/photo box, card box or even the star.  I am sure ready to give it a try.
