Who isn't Crazy for these Crazy Dogs and matching Crazy Dogs Framelit dies. 
 
I must admit this is my first time using both.  I saw this sentiment somewhere while stalking people and crafty things.  I believe it was one of those shared photo's on Facebook.  I read it and thought immediately of these silly pups.


I pulled out my dies, stamps and stencil.  A little stamping, inking and cutting.


I am not one that likes to fussy cut... AT ALL!  So stamping and using the framelits is so nice and easy.  I used my mini distress inks for inking these puppy's!


I have don't have the Crazy Things  Framelits but I do have the  Crazy Things stamp set.  Yep, fussy cutting for me.  The sentiment is stamped with my teeny stamps and I cut the Stitched Rectangles for the back.


This dogs face is priceless!


Especially with all these crazy faces.


The bouquet of flowers from the Crazy Things stamp set is tucked in his mouth.  I attached a Small Tattered Florals flower for some depth.


HAHA... this sentiment kills me.


The "card" is 5 1/2x7 1/2 so since I don't have a folding card the Stitched Rectangles are attached to the back.



The stitches are an awesome detail.  I attached a Wildflowers 2 cut just for fun,  They are sitting on my desk... doing nothing but being pretty.



#iloveyou... why not.


A bit of a different card for my sweetheart.


I wanted to make something fun and try out my stamps and dies.  A lot of watercoloring which I love to do and there you have it.  A Valentine card.

Have a sweet day!

  5. This is adorable! I don't have the dogs yet, but you have sold me! Well, maybe not...I have the birds and cats and I've only used a cat a couple times...probably not a good investment. But I love yours! The background is the cat's meow! Hugs!

  7. Nicole...this card is darling! You're right...the faces on those dogs are priceless! I love your design here and how you've used the stenciled hearts in the background but also left some white space! Very effective and really sets off those adorable dogs! I also love the way you've mounted this card. Really really pretty! Thanks for sharing your creation with all of us at Creative Carte Blanche.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
