Fab Friday 172

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday....the 13th.  Eek!  With the full moon and today, things are always a little sideways, lol!  It's been busy over here with the new office space I've gotten and I've worked hard to get it cleaned up (the whole house, construction is so gross and messy) and functional.  Anyway, taking some time to share the new Fab Friday challenge with you!

Here's what I did!  I had to use the gingham DSP in Pretty Peacock because I just love it!  I thought it would pair perfectly with Country Home.  I also thought that would pair with the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate and Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and I wasn't wrong!  We tend to get caught up in the Holiday Catalog but this is a great autumn themed set from the Annual Catalog!

I stamped right on the acetate and then cut out my can.

You can see the puff paint here.  It was fun to use!  I just dabbed a little on each cotton boll and then was careful not to tip my paper while I heated it from the bottom.  It popped up kind of like popcorn! Isn't it fun and perfect for this set????

Make sure to check out what the team did!  I'm out, got a headache and in a weird funk so maybe I'll come back and link supplies later.

Happy stamping!

Wicked Spiders

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  I'm using the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set again.  I forgot I'd made this way back before I went to Illinois and it's the perfect time to share since the Stampin' Through the Catalog Challenge yesterday was this stamp set!

I actually only used the sentiment stamps and then incorporated the Wicked Dies.  I don't really like spiders, in fact, I hate them (and some BIG ones live in Oklahoma....yikes) but these guys are pretty cute!

I like the combination of black, gray, grape and mango for Halloween, too!  The Monster Bash DSP may not be in the same suite as this bundle but it sure works great!

I'm off to try to stay out of the way of the painters who are here to paint my cabinets!  Eeeeeeeeppppp!  I'm so excited!

Wonderfully Wicked

Hi stampers!  Happy Thursday!  It still feels weird to write that with the long weekend.  I am so confused!  Usually going to the gym and doing different classes helps me keep my days straight but with the installation of my new cabinets, I haven't been able to do that either.  Hopefully I'll get straightened out next week!

Anyway, I'm sharing another Halloween card today.  I used Wonderfully Wicked for the Stampin' Through The Catalog Challenge this week!  I'm loving their challenges, it's really helping me to USE the sets I have!  Wonderfully Wicked is a super fun set and I've combined it here with the Ornate Frames Dies.  While they aren't a bundle, they work great together!

I love that little cat silhouette.  I did a Smoky Slate wash behind him, let it dry then splattered it and stamped him.  I probably should have used the Stamparatus since I was stamping on watercolor paper which has some texture, but I didn't think of it.  My panel is also watercolor paper and was splattered then spritzed.

Happy stamping!

Happy Holiday Catalog Day

Hi stampers!  Happy hump day!  It is Wednesday, right?  A three day weekend always gets me!  But I'm pretty sure it is because today is the day you can order from the 2019 Holiday Catalog!

I just adore this catalog!  Even though it's almost 100 here, September always feels like fall to me!  And since it's September, I thought I better get a move on making Halloween stuff!  This catalog has the cutest Halloween goodies!  The Spooktacular Bash Bundle is just the cutest and those frames will see a lot of use outside of halloween!

When I saw the little potion bottles, I knew I had to have this bundle.  I've had these guys colored and cut out on my desk for a while now just waiting to make it onto a card.  I also thought they'd look super cute in frames, it feels kind of Harry Potter inspired!  I saw a few other stampers doing this so they beat me, hehe!

 I actually colored them in with the Pigment Sprinkles.  Those colors are SO vibrant.  I used a little watercolor pallet to make my colors.  You don't need much powder at all or much water!  These are so concentrated!  IF you get too much water or color you can try to blot with a paper towel.  Just a little tip.  My splatters were done with my black marker and Basic Gray.  My sentiment is from To Every Season which is a super cute stamp set that covers a lot of holidays!  Real bang for your buck there!

Also starting today, is the DSP sale!  You can find a select list of papers in the online store that are buy three, get one free!  Of course, I'm not organized enough to have any projects done with them right now.  We can pretend it's because I'm forced out of my stamp studio but we all know that's just me :-)

It's also an exciting time around here because I'm getting cabinets installed in my stamp studio, which is why my stamp stupid is displaced. You can see some sneak peeks over on my instagram account!  I'm hoping being more organized helps me stamp more and be more creative!  This card was made in a makeshift are in my living room which I actually kind of like (lol) but it can't stay there!

Happy stamping!

Check You Out Again

Hi stampers!  I hope everyone had a great long weekend!  We did!  We did a lot of nothing which was great after a busy week for Ian and I and Jon getting back from a week in Belgium!  The one thing I DID do was empty out my stamp studio because the cabinet guys are coming TODAY to install my new built ins!  I'm so excited and also nervous.  I hope they are exactly how I want them to be!  I'm also strangely excited to organize all my stuff in there!  My stuff is spread all over the house and I've set up a small shop in the living room much to Jon's dismay.  Although, he's a little jealous and said I can stay in the living room if he can have my office, hahahaha!  I do have two desk spaces being installed so I MAY let him move in but it all depends on how much space I end up needing, hahaha!

Anyway, here's another card with Check Me Out because it's adorable and I'm obsessed!  I also can't believe how much I like Rococo Rose!  I'm so not a rose colored kinda girl but I really do love this one!

My little owl needed just a little something so I cut out a little heart from Stitched Labels and it was perfect!  Off to get my little owl to school!

Happy stamping!

Fab Friday 171

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  It's a happy day around here as Jon comes home from being in Belgium all week!  Yay!  And followed by a long weekend!  It's also time for a new Fab Friday challenge!  We have a sketch this time!

I've had this background just waiting to be made into a card!  I'll link the video I did a few weeks ago for the masks and Pigment Sprinkles below!  It's such a fun technique!  This sketch was perfect for this background because it doesn't need much to make it stand out!  For my letters, I just stamped them and cut them out with the dies, then you can just trim off the layering parts leaving just the letters.

I stuck pretty true to the sketch and didn't need much to finish this one off!  Hope you like it!  And I hope you play along with us and check out what the rest of the team did!

Here's the video which works for any of our masks, this is just the one I chose to use!

Happy stamping!
