Photoplay Oh Canada

Having enjoyed crafting and creating for many years I've been wanting to try creating a blog so that I could share my craft with others. I love to share ideas and get ideas from fellow crafters.  Although I may not be the best at creative writing I've decided to try and give it a whirl. I hope I can share my passion with you for years to come.

Today i'm sharing with you a card I created as part of the Scrap of Paradise design team using the Photoplay Oh Canada line and stamp set. I colored the moose using Copic markers then fussy cut him out. I use 110lb weight card stock for most of my stamped images as they hold up better. For this moose I also colored the edges of the white cardstock black for a better finish as the white stood out too much. I used a vellum sentiment by core'dinations called Vellum Quotes and Titles Celebrate pack which has 60 different vellum sheets. I placed the vellum in the window which I raised slightly using foam squares over the Canada leaf patterned paper giving the Canada leaves a softer look. To create the window I used the We R memory keepers frame punch board.

Santa Paws

Today I would like to share a card I made using the "Santa paws" stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. This stamp had been meant for a Christmas card or scrapbooking layout however I had chosen a yellow and black theme rather so I could use this card as a birthday or "just to say hi" card.  For the "Lovely" I used a die from Heidi Swapp. To create the thick chipboard look and feel I die cut black coverstock 5 times and used adhesive to layer the cuts. To color the stamped image I used my trusty Copic markers and finished off with Tim Holtz distress ink to create a floor.
