Fright Night gum treat

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Is it too early to be thinking of Halloween?  I hope not!  I have a friend who loves Halloween so it would never be too early for her.  Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a Halloween gum treat using a NEW clear set that is now appearing in your local AC Moore craft stores!  This set is called Fright Night (SC0735) and includes an owl, Frankenstein, and cat, PLUS a matching die to cut the images out!

I started with some packs of gum that have a sleeve and a piece that slides out with the gum inside individual “bubbles”.  Then I measured and wrapped the packs with patterned paper.  Before adhering the paper, I wrapped it around and traced the half-circle openings.  I punched those out of the paper with a 3/4″ circle punch.  Then the paper was secured with Scor-Tape.

The outside was decorated with my Copic colored and die cut images.  A cute sentiment from the set was heat embossed with white embossing powder onto a black cardstock strip.

On the inside, I used little glue dots to attach some die cut bats to each gum “bubble”.  (Psst… the bat dies and the little pumpkin die on the front are a sneak peek and will be appearing in a stamp set in a few weeks!)  :)

I hope you liked this little treat project.  Have a great day and… happy stamping!

teeth flew out

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using one of Ai’s hilarious couples and some sentiments that coordinate nicely!  Here I used Birthday Couple (1920) , Teeth Flew Out (1936) , and Still Have Teeth (an AC Moore exclusive wood mounted stamp).

I don’t know if it’s the color combo, layout, or the cute couple…but I really like how this card turned out.  The sentiment just cracks me up!

I love when the inside of the card coordinates with the front and I wanted to use up the scraps so…

I masked the image off of the Still Have Teeth stamp and just used the words.  How perfect do they go with this card?!

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

This one has been sitting on my desk and I love looking at the cheerful yellow card… it’s one of my favorites!  I hand cut the images out before I got the dies and I can’t wait to use those dies now!!  This set is so fun!  It’s a must-have!

musical monarchs

Good morning!

Today Sweet ‘n Sassy is featuring the new Music to My Ears stamp set that was released this month.  Here I made a simple card along with some butterflies from Majestic Monarchs.

The words were stamped in the corner of a piece of patterned paper and then masked with a torn scrap before stamping the musical background.  I have some butterflies that I made with the Majestic Monarchs and matching Dies using acetate for a different project but had changed my mind and used vellum instead.  So I thought this would be a good project to use some of those leftover acetate butterflies!

Thanks for popping in and… happy stamping!

birthday fairy

Hello friends!

The current Ai Challenge is “Glitter & Shimmer”…what a fun challenge!  On this card I used the Ai Birthday Fairy Set (4730) from the Ai Shakers line.  She is perfect to add some sparkle and shimmer to.  Plus…her skirt is on an action wobble for added fun!

I turned the card a bit so you can maybe? see the glittery flowers on the background paper.  I also added Stickles to the star on her wand, the decorations on her hat, the flower centers, and a few accents on the main panel.  The striped paper border and her flower paper skirt are also glittery!  Some Clear Wink of Stella was brushed on her wings for a bit of shimmer.

A close up of this fun fairy…

And here’s a side view…her skirt is popped up on a wobble and the star is on a foam dot.  I cut a slit at the top of her hand for the wand to slip through.

lucky ducky

Hello friends and happy Thursday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the Bunny & Ducky Mini Set (4404) and the coordinating Bunny & Ducky Mini Dies (4537) .

I cut a circle window in the front of my square card for ducky to peek through.

On the inside, ducky’s back side is on the left and I folded a little pocket on the right to slip in a gift card, note, or cash!  This card is really simple to make…start with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of cardstock and score @ 4 1/4 and 8 1/2.  The last section is cut on a diagonal and folded in…then adhere the bottom edge with strong tape.  I cut a layer for this triangular section by cutting a piece of 2 1/4 x 4 patterned paper diagonally in half.

Have a great day and… happy stamping!

Here I cut a wave through my top layer and placed another stamped and colored layer underneath.  The sentiment was curved a little on the acrylic block to follow the wave.

a new creation

Just popping in quick to share a page of my Bible art journaling.  I really wanted to do butterflies and so I picked 2 Corinthians 5:17 to journal.  When I was looking through my SNSS stash of butterflies, I was pleasantly surprised to find a stamp with that verse…totally forgot about it!

2 Corinthians 5 17 diane zechman

My page was first prepped with clear Gesso.  The two butterflies over the words were stamped on vellum with Stazon and colored on the reverse side with Copics, then only attached to the page in the center so I can still read the words. The other stamping was with Versafine Black and watercolored.  The clouds were done with my hand drawn/cut cloud stencil.

2 Corinthians 5 17 side diane zechman

The butterfly tab at the top was inspired by Kelly Gettelfinger and was also done with vellum.

Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps used on this page: Treasured, Majestic Monarchs and matching Dies, New Creature, and Serene Silhouettes.

I will be teaching this page later this month, so if you are local and want to join us, call The Craft Shack for more info!

Thanks for popping in!  Be sure to check out more inspiration on the Creative Worship Blog.  Have a great day!
