Decades theme at The Friday Mashup!

Hello and welcome to Friday!

I am hosting this week over at The Friday Mashup and I thought it would be fun to try and incorporate the styles of a particular decade into projects.

I used some absolutely amazing digital stamps from Some Odd Girl to create these three little note cards. They all have a fun little saying inside.

"Now you're on the trolly!" 

"Hope you have a groovy day, baby"
(Happy Birthday!)

"Catch you on the flip side"

The stamps I used (in order) were; Flapper Kaylee60s Mod Mae and 70s Kaylee.

Check out the challenge this week:

  1. Create a project using a Decades theme (60s/70s/80s/etc)
  2. Create a project with Colour Blocking
  3. or Mash it Up! and create a project using a Decades them and Colour Blocking

Thanks for stopping by today!

Too Cute to Spook for Colour Me...!

Well folks, it has been far too long since I posted on my blog. I've finally found my crafting mojo... Not too long ago, I ran into a friend of mine at my (somewhat) local craft store, and how unlikely it was since she's not even from here! Sharing in the excitement of new goodies and talking about techniques really got me inspired again.

One item I added to my stash is making an appearance on this card for the latest Colour Me...! challenge. I'm very quickly falling in love with distress inks.

This project started with this absolutely darling little witchy Wryn from Tiddly Inks. I didn't quite get the blend I wanted to on her robe, so I added some stars and sparkle with a white gel pen. Then I sat and stared for a few days before I could decide on the background!

I sketched out this little cauldron and was going to piece together a little scene, but decided instead that I'd add some distress inks to the pot and the background, and use my Copics to sketch in a little cobblestone ground.

A little Christmas Joy for The Friday Mashup!

This week at The Friday Mashup we have a fun sketch with the added challenge of trying out the inlaid die cutting technique. I absolutely love this effect, but up to this point, haven't tried it out!

I had a bunch of ideas on what I wanted to do (a list of about 5-6 different plans!), but decided on this design because I loved the sparkle paper SO much!

I coloured this darling little digi fairy from Make It Crafty a few days ago and was itching to get her on a card.

Check out the challenge this week:

  1. Create a project with the Sketch
  2. Create a project with inlaid die cutting
  3. or Mash it Up! and create a project with the sketch and inlaid die cutting
Be sure to stop by the Friday Mashup blog and check out all the fantastic projects for the rest of the design team.

Bag-in-a-Box for The Friday Mashup!

Going back in time a bit for this one, as it didn't make it to the blog.

I love these little bag-in-a-box bags... They are super sweet and really great for giving small gifts. I hope to make a few of these to give teach gifts this Christmas.

Sorry for the dark photo... turns out I need a better camera, a brighter place to take pictures, and a larger area to set up bigger projects!

Here's the challenge:

  1. Create a project with Glitter
  2. Create a 3D Project (Box, bag, candy holder, etc)
  3. or Mash it Up! and create 3D item using some Glitter

Monochromatic for Colour Me...!

It's monochromatic week at Colour Me...! and we're using Mossy Meadow.

I will admit, I find green to be one of the hardest colours to use! But Mossy Meadow has such a vintage winter/christmas feel to it, that I immediately went 'there'.

Check out the challenge this week and be sure to see all the lovely projects by the other designers.
