Splash Time! ScrappyDew DT Post



I created this Splash Time layout using scraps from DCWV's Vintage Collector Stack, The files I used are from ScrappyDew's Mermaids and Splash Time Boy. I changed up the mermaid a little by using the star that was ment for her hair as her top. and i used the shell in her hair. I just wanted her to be different. The big star in the corner is the same star just layered and off set. I used only Vintage Photo Distress ink to edge all my pieces. To stamp the face I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I used a white gel pen to add highlight and pink chalk on the cheeks. I just used random bling from my stash to add bling and fill empty spaces.  Thanks for stoppin by!!! -Chris

Happy Purr-thday Gift Bag- OAK Tree DT Post


Just dropping in to share my second OAK Tree stamps DT project for the month. I wanted to make anything but a card.  I made this bag from Cricut's Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More cartridge. I used the scraps to stamp out the Kitty and the paw. I fussy cut them out. I added the paw on a mini clothespin to secure my bow. I stamped the sentiment on a blue piece of paper and cut it into a flag  glued it behind the kitty and attached it to the bag. I bent the kitty's ears and tail to give it dimension. I cut strips with the left over blue paper and crimped them and curled them for filler. I hope you like my project and can't wait to see what I've got in mind for the NEW! OAK Tree Stamps!!! 
Make sure you follow them on FB so you don't miss a thing!

Best Mummy Ever- ScrappyDew DT Post


I created this card using a sketch from a card challenge going on this week in my Cricut group The Pioneer Cricuteer. You can find the link to the card sketch DS file in my Graduation Card post, posted earlier this week. The super cute mummy can be found at scrappydew.com the pattern set is called Mummy Madness. I have so many cute files from ScrappyDew, I love thinking outside the box when using them.  I was intimidated by this pattern but it was actually very easy. I used to different colored shimmer cardstocks on her. I inked all the edges with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. To embellish the card I used dollar tree bling and a few random sequin. The sentiment is printed out on the same shimmer paper, I cut it out and added a border with the patterned paper.

Thanks For Stopping By & Happy Mummy's Day!!!

Monkey Around - ScrappyDew DT Post

Just swinging by to share a birthday card I created for my ScrappyDew design team project. The patterns I used came from the Halloween Cuties and the balloon is from Birthday Boy Cake Smash.
I also used a grass cut from the Cricut library. I used various Distress Inks on all the edges and a white gel pen for highlight. The sentiment is from an old Virginia Turtle stamp set.
